I want to share with you some pictures I took in Paris during my last trip for Men’s Fashion Week. I had a really great time, as always in Paris. Actually I’ve never had any feeling that it gets me bored, it inspires me so I always come back to London with new ideas .
I had a pleasure to stay in Le Lapin Blanc Hotel, a lovely boutique hotel located in the Latin Quarter near Odeon Station, just around a corner from Saint Germain. What’s more it turned out that a few shows like Hermes, Y-3 or Lanvin were located just a few minutes walk.
Also, there is a very interesting story contected with the design and interior of the hotel. This is nothing other than Alice in wonderland fairy tale, about Alice who inhabits this place in search of her white rabbit. What a coincidence, I can identify with this story altogether! Each floor has different colour, walls are layered with colorful drawings taking us for the time of a dream in the mysterious and historic atmosphere of the Latin Quarter.
On the first picture you can see a view from my room on a little street in Latin Quarter, then interior of my room located on the 4th floor. If you prefer cold colours like green or blue you should ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor. I personally prefer warm colours, they always make me happier. On the third picture a classic french breakfast. It’s always fun to eat it on that typicall Parisian balcony, it tastes better, no?
Above, a few shots from Men’s Fashion Week. First one from No Editions presentation. Parisan interiors are incredible! Then Henrik Vibovsk show with a pool and balet dancers splashing the water in the middle of runway. It was a stunning performance!
On the third picture my shot of Luke White after walking Paul Smith runways show during the last day of fashion week ( click here to see my other shots from Men’s Fashion Week ). And last shot , uhm … me seeing Notre Dame cathedral for the first time in my life. I was impressed!
A few shots from Montmartre. I’m not a romantic girl, but I love Montmartre like crazy. It’s beautiful and magical! And what I love the most are these little streets out of the touristic part of the area, so closer to Chatea Rouge metro station. On the last picture Xavier smoking cigarettes after doing his first runways show.
Thank you to Snaptraveller for a great trip to Paris! Francois for a motorbike ride in Paris ( it was unreal ) and lovely Acielle from STYLE DU MONDE for the beautiful streetstyle shots of me while running away from the rain in Saint Germain!
As much as I love black clothes, I felt great wearing this green ensemble in Paris during fashion week in February. There is something special about bottle green, it’s fresh, photogenic but still classy and not too bold. We took these pictures in Palais de Tokyo after Acne show. It was very windy, and my skirt was moving up and down. Hope you like the pictures! xx
Let’s go back to Paris once again, to Le Marais to be exact, where we spent a lot of time during Paris Fashion Week last month. I was wearing a jacket and bag from Barbara Bui, made of denim printed leather ( check out denim leather s/s14 collection here), old skinny jeans with Pollini by Nicholas Kirkwood Odette heels. It started to rain heavily during our photoshoot, so we had to take pictures in literally two minutes . So annoying.
During my last day in Paris I went for a walk to 3rd arrondissement. It was my first time there and I found it really beautiful. Reminds me of Cracow and Kazimierz an old jewish district. I promised myself to explore it more when I’m next time in Paris.
Some pictures from Pollini by Nicholas Kirkwood A/W 2014 presentation in Paris. As a brand ambasador I was invited to Le Bristol hotel to see the collection and meet the designer, Nicholas Kirkwood in person. It was such a pleasure to talk to a person who I have admired for his work for a long time.
Here you can see my favourite styles from A/W collection. Autumn season could come faster than I thought. For the day of presentation I was wearing Pollini by Nicholas Kirkwood heels from the current season, available here , Filles A Papa sequin shirt, black skinny jeans and Barbara Bui bag.
