PFW LOOK #1
The week went by so fast, I can almost say that I won’t be leaving the same after Paris. These last days here took me from not only getting used to the streets of Paris (and learn that walking is not an option) to get into a Uber, attend the shows and leave. I can say that it was nothing like I expected it to be, surprisingly. Grand Palais was my favourite place to attend the shows, it looks amazing from inside out! Most shows happened there and at Palais de Tokyo. During my stay I attended Tsumori Chizato, Andrew GN, Diogo Miranda,Talbot Runholf, Valentin Yudaskin, John Galliano, Mira Mikati, Leonard Paris, Paul Ka, Veronique Branquinho and Shiatzi Chen - We also had invites for Fatima Lopes and Luis Buchinho but the time was short and we had to skip. Pantheone was canceled and Dorhout Mees had the worst organisation, looking like a nightclub at the entrance with rude security, so we left. We also went to Iris Apfel Exposition party and Raspoutine soirée night, celebrating Thierry Lasry x Dr. Woo x Colette. It was amazing, I had such a good time, Raspoutine was such a great place to go out. Beckerman Sisters were there as well as Yvan Rodic (aka FaceHunter) and Amanda Steele also seemed to stop by for a couple minutes.
I will be sharing more about my experience at Paris Fashion Week in the next days as well as the other 7 looks I wore during this week.
About the look, on the first day we wanted to get to know the city before heading to the shows. I was looking to feel a bit comfortable and warm. When 24º feels like home, hitting the cold 6º (felt like 0º) is something I still haven’t got used to. Flared jeans sounded like the perfect choice for a rainy day that ended up surprising us all with snow! At Palais de Tokyo it looked even more beautiful with the Eiffel Tower so close. My blanket coat was one of the most perfect key items to wear throughout the week, although it was not the most elegant, it sure kept me warm and gave my looks another sense of volume and texture.
