There is no better place to shop for basic clothes than Uniqlo. Especially when teamed up with the Parisian brand Lemaire for the 2016 Spring/Summer collection, after their success of collaboration last fall. I had a chance to shoot a few pieces before they hit the stores: the white deep v-neck jumper and the red sleeveless dress, both made from comfortable and the most carefully selected materials. I just can’t wait for the summer to wear this dress outside with my favorite pair of sandals or even flip flops. Minimalism is just what I feel like in terms of my spring/summer wardrobe. Uniqlo x Lemaire collection will be available first at Uniqlo.com March 3rd at 11pm and in selected stores from March 18th, you’d better get ready!

Views of New York are always breathtaking, especially when you can admire them from an amazing hotel. I had a pleasure to stay in The Sago Hotel in Lower East Side, one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever been to. It’s located in the coolest area of Lower East Side, close to all bars and cafes. Not only the interiors make you feel like home, but also the friendliest stuff. We didn’t want to come back to London! These pictures were taken in the penthouse on the 8th floor and this view just took my breath away.
I also wanted to show you my tiny jewelry from two Polish brands Apart and Artelioni. It’s classic and timeless. Nothing can bring a smile to our face like a pretty necklace ( or a mix of necklaces ) or a ring. I’m back in London and already miss New York like crazy!
New York, you’re the coldest place on Earth. I expect winter in February, but – 20 C was a little too much. Luckily I prepared myself well, this gorgeous bottle green faux fur coat from Avenue32 kept me warm during the coldest day in NY. Maybe I shouldn’t complain, so many random people asked me where is it from and ask if they can touch it. Well, I didn’t mind…
The rest of my outfit is not complicated, just blue jeans, black boots and the new Louis Vuitton Twist bag. We took these photos in Lower East Side and Soho. The shop with magazines in my background is located on Kenmare Street, they have a fantastic selection of international magazines and newspapers that one would have trouble finding. We spent there hours after shooting browsing magazines.

If you travel a lot from one city to another, then you become a master in planning your trip and how to make it quick and comfortable enough. From choosing the best airlines, to the transport from the airport to the city centre of your destination. To be honest, when I’m planning a trip for fashion week, for example to Paris or New York, I spend hours in front of my computer organising it, booking tickets, choosing the right times etc. Especially with New York where I’ll be flying next week for fashion week. My trip is almost organised ( yay! ) and I couldn’t be more excited. I usually fly by British Airways, occasionally with Virgin Atlantic. Feeling safe on long distance flights for me is a priority. Then I use Blacklane , a global driver service available in the biggest cities around a world, to pick me up from the airport and drop off at the hotel I’m staying. It’s so important to have a comfortable ride with with my heavy suitcase ( or two.. ) while having a chat with the nicest drivers in NYC. After a long 8 hour flight from London to New York I’m the most talkative person in the world If you’re planning any trips to Paris, New York, LA, Rome or anywhere else ( check available cities ) I definitely recommend you use Blacklane – you can book your ride before your trip here. And yes, NYC, I’m coming for you next week! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and snapchat for live updates. x

Paris it’s always a good idea! I’ve just come back from a few days long trip to Paris for Men’s Fashion Week. I had the pleasure to stay in The COQ Hotel my favourite boutique hotel located very close to Jardin de Luxembourg and Saint Germain. I feel like it’s my home away from home. I’ve stayed there for the second time and enjoyed it even more than the last time. I love small boutique hotels because they’re cosy, very often run by its members, who take care of their guests with special attention and it feels like home. The lobby and the lounge in COQ hotel is arranged in a beautiful living room setting ( I wish I had such an amazing one in my London flat! ) with designer furniture and home accessories, from magazines to photography books. Plus a lot of plants and a glasstop roof which gives the whole area a winter garden look where you can enjoy your time with a glass of French wine and eventually play Scrabble or Monopoly, or more realistically work on your computer or iPhone.
You can see more photos from my trip on my Instagram. And if you’re planning to visit Paris soon, I can highly recommend a stay in COQ hotel.
