Best of Couture Week.

Image

After traveling most of June and July, I finally found some time to express myself after so many influences during the early summer months. To be completely honest I think the couture weeks are my favorite source of fashion inspiration. The more over the top the better. And ever since the discussion on weather trends were actually still relevant anymore, I seek to the extravagant even more!
I noticed that angles were in every department. At Viktor&Rolf in broken frames as sleeves, crossed and ripped out face paintings at Margiela and pipe smoking models at Jean Paul Gaultier.

But first and foremost —> My go to look on European evenings.

“Look Of The Week” – Earth Tones

Image

When living in constant warm climate, You can’t really help but long for that colder weather sometimes and the opportunity to wear layers with one of those amazing wool coats that have shown on so many runways for the fall collections recently.
I decided that since I had loads of travel plans for the early spring and summer that I should definitely invest in a new coat. The one I am wearing here is a wool coat from Sandro in a deep navy blue that I got on sale from their last AW Collection. 
It is the perfect length for a coat and has no lining so you can label it the “LA winter coat” given its simple thin and light design.
I wanted to tone down the colours a bit, so we went for a tan leather dress paired with the navy coat in this “look of the week”, keeping the colors earth-toned, and adding a little edge with some black lace-up shoes to the sophisticated elements of the look.
We are usually very intrigued by a lot of color and pattern play for my personal looks, but I just love a well thought out classic outfit, especially if you are excited by a new investment piece and find great ways of styling it!
