Paris Fashion Week Highlights

October 10, 2016

 

The newest fashion, croissants, celebs and more. Last week it was time for Paris Fashion Week, and I was there! I was running around non-stop, so I decided to make a small diary for you guys to give you an idea about what fashion week looks like. Sitting front row at the coolest designers, meeting Karlie Kloss, and of course posing for the streetstyle photographers in between shows. I’m spilling it all. Continue Reading

Paris Fashion Week Highlights

February 5, 2016

Oui Oui, Paris! Last week it was time for some Haute Couture: the crème de la crème of the fashionworld. What could a girl want more? Amazing people to meet, a beautiful city to visit and of course lots of luxurious fashion to see! Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time this week so I only visited a couple of shows and presentations, but it was so much fun! Let’s check out what I have been up to shall we?:)

The first day it was immediately a non-stop rush of visiting shows and presentations. My favorite shows of that day were Stéphane Rolland and Georges Chakra, who I was able to interview! Here is a quick backstage shot:

Who is that BlondeAs you can see I am channeling my inner 70’s with this gorgeous all black outfit! I was wearing an amazing velvet suit with a long blazer and flared trousers from Ay Si Barcelona which I got from Passage BCN. Underneath it I am wearing a laced up body from Boohoo.com which I personally love under any type of blazer or V-necks, it instantly makes the outfit look more fun and fashionable!

To finish up the outfit, I accessorized with a statement bag from Les Petites Jouers which I also got from Passage BCN, and a beautiful handmade necklace from Chris van den Elzen which perfectly blends in with my laced up body.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next day it was great to see some Dutch representation during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week with the collection of Ilja Visser! The designs were all based around the concept of skin, which resulted in quite some interesting looks. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of our interview but I can tell you one thing: she is so nice! Check out my look for the show:

Valentina Garí1 Valentina Garí

I felt very Parisian while wearing this asymetrical dress from Valentina Garí in combination with a beige coat from Maria Roch, both designers from Barcelona! It’s a very simple but classy look with the fedora hat from Mango and my lace shoes from Zara. What I love about the dress is the fact that it has a velvet detail, which makes the A-line dress more unique and perfect for the winter season! In the afternoon it was time to change up my outfit for a cocktail party and the last show of Paris Fashion Week: Guo Pei! This was seriously on of the best collections I have ever seen, they call her ‘the Chanel of Asia‘ for a reason!

Maria Roch1 Maria Roch

With this beautiful grey croptop sweater from Maria Roch I felt like creating a more casual streetstyle in combination with my highwaist grey skinny jeans from Zara and a pair of high heeled booties. I changed up my beloved fedora hat for my new beanie from New Age Rebel – my currently favorite brand from London. Last but not least I brought some color into my outfit with this adorable clutch from Sarah’s Bag, which I also got at Passage BCN. I love the text ‘Take me Anywhere‘ and how the lock of the clutch is a little toy car, I mean… who doesn’t love this?!

The day after the Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week is officially over, it’s time for the Haute Joaillerie presentations a.k.a. lots of beautiful shiny jewelry to gawk at! I was so happy to be invited to the Chanel presentation with Marcellous Jones: I had high expectations and they managed to surpass them!

This season Chanel experimented Chanel Jewelry
with seamless connections between the high quality diamonds without compromising the flexibility of the jewelry. The diamond shape of the stones is the motive troughout the collection: simple but classic. This necklace right here is the showstopper of the collection: it’s worth €2,8 million! Sponsors anyone? 

 

During the little tour through the collection I was asked whether I would like to try on one of the rings… they didn’t have to ask me twice! I never thought I could get this excited about jewelry but as soon as I put on this ring my heart started beating a bit faster. Chanel took my breath away!

 

Obviously I had a beautiful outfit ready for the occasion of seeing Chanel from close: a flowy navy blue dress from Maria Roch. It can also be worn as a vest but since I kept it closed it might as well function as a dress. Underneath I wore the same body from Boohoo.com as I wore for my hippie look, isn’t it great to see how a different combination can completely change the style of an outfit?! I love how this outfit makes me feel super feminine and graceful as the dress wavers around in the wind, but also a little bit sexy because of the high split and the deep V-neck… A strong combination that gives me the best of both worlds!

Last but not least I decided to hang around a bit longer than necessary in Paris to go out to party with friends, and do a photoshoot with Koffi Annipah! We made some quick shots in C-Heads Magazine Style, I am so curious about the results!

Anyway, that were the highlights of my Paris Fashion Week, I hope you liked it! Cheers :)

PFW Streetstyle: Black Swan

October 6, 2015

IMGL1858_phixrGood news lovelies! Today I was able to shine in one of the designs by Michelangelo Winklaar, lucky me! This time I am going all black with his ‘black ballerina dress’ in combination with a bodysuit which I got at Oysho: they fit together so perfectly that you can barely even notice I am wearing two different pieces! This outfit is a great example of combining designer pieces with affordable mass production: all you have to do is to get creative and to mix & match!

Since the dress is already such a strong look on own it’s barely even necessary to accessorize. You don’t want to overload the outfit, so it sufficed to add one purple statement ring and a beautiful Mange purse.

Today I visited the Agnes B show, as well as Paul & Joe, and I had the BEST time ever interviewing people before and after the show in collaboration with the Modelboard Crew! The videos will be online soon so keep an eye out for them!

 

Lots of Love,

Lynn

PFW Streetstyle: Heel Rockin’

October 4, 2015

Hey there Loves!

Today was an amazing day! Among others I visited the John Galliano show (first row!) for which I obviously had to wear some kickass outfit. Leaving the dresses and skirts behind for today, I decided to go for a more edgy look. With a grey high waisted skinny jeans, a red lumberjack and a black leather croptop from Ulrike Verding I created a comfy streetwise outfit. To make this look ready for fashion week, I put on these amazing designer shoes from Chris van den Elzen. The heels are in fact created with a 3D printer and it takes DAYS before he is able to finish them! These booties are insanely high so you can’t walk on them for too long, but it’s totally worth the pain, trust me!

Now I’ll be on my way to join a party in Matignon so see you tomorrow again!

Big kiss,
Lynn

PFW Streetstyle: Prima Ballerina

October 3, 2015

PFW Streetstyle Prima Ballerina(2)Who ever said that tutu’s are just for Ballerina’s? It’s so easy to turn it around into a modern look for the classy ladies out there! I went for an all-black outfit with my ‘Cool Girls Club’ OKE by Me T-shirt, high heels and a big black ribbon to accentuate my waistline (and the cuteness of the look obviously!).

The Tule skirt is actually longer than it looks like on the picture, I turned it over a couple of times to make it knee-height and I used the ribbon to hide the evidence (yeah you didn’t notice that, now did you?!) I love this outfit, I feel like a 21st Century princess, why didn’t I buy a Tutu before?!

I gotta run to the show of Rahul Mishra now lovelies! Have a nice day and see you tomorrow!

Lots of love,

Lynn

PFW Streetstyle: Statement Day

October 2, 2015

day2_4_phixr
A skater skirt with knee-high socks and black derby shoes is ALWAYS a good combination! I decided to make the minimalistic ‘cute & classy’ look a bit more interesting with a statement shirt: more personality = more fun!

Anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows that I’m a big fan of power  women: strong women who follow their dreams and work hard to get there… you have my infinite respect! This outfit is my tribute to you, and actually it has a little story to it. I got this limited edition T-shirt while visiting a Cosmopolitan event in Amsterdam some months ago, it was all about the empowerment of women and I met some amazing and inspiring people there. They organized several reading around the topic ‘Confidence’. It got me thinking about what this word actually means to me.

For me confidence is not about not having any doubts, it’s about having doubts but trusting in your own capacities to reach your goal. I had more than enough doubts about becoming a fashion reporter…

I am not schooled in fashion, I don’t have any experience (yet), there are so many professionals out there, what if I will make a fool out of myself? Did those doubts stop me from trying it anyway? Hell no!

  •  Can I write English? Yes I can
  •  Can I give an opinion about fashion? Most definitely
  •  Can I learn how to improve my skills? Duhh

Seems legit… let’s do this! I guess in this situation I would classify myself as a power woman, and to be honest: I really like to think so! How would you describe confidence or a power woman? Share your
thoughts!

PFW Streetstyle: Walkin’ down the street

October 1, 2015

PFW1Halleluja! I needed a break from all the heels that I have been wearing this week! With this casual chic outfit it’s super easy to run to all the shows and look fashionable at the same time… why didn’t I take more outfits like this?! This green A-line dress is designed by Joelle Boers and is made by 100% recycled polyester: super soft AND good for the environment! A backpack and Adidas sneakers make the overall look more suitable for a streetstyle (and obviously way more practical… win-win!).

Today  I visited the AF Vandevorst show which was inspired by motorcycles, very creative and supercool! Now I am on my way to the Manish Arora Cocktail party and after that I will go out at Raspoutine, one of the hottest clubs in Paris. As you can see I am most definitely NOT standing still here and it’s an amazing experience, let’s see how the rest of the week will be going!

Lots of Love,
Lynn
