“Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.” Well, the spring/summer trends of 2017 go well beyond floral prints. It’s all about reinvention of the good old classics and “more-is-more” aesthetic. From exaggerated sleeves,loud logo tees to new takes on sheer and ruffled textures. Quite chaotic and wonderfully diverse, this new season’s trends brought an emphasis on individuality, which by someone like me, that is not too eager to blindly follow the trends, becomes crucial.
I’ve already mentioned that everything in houndstooth, checks and any form of crossing lines print is on “my buy now” list, but this jumpsuit of absolute grid-brilliance is way another level. A gingham jumpsuit with such a 60’s boyish charm is something I could only dream of.

As much as I wish and as much as it looks like I was stopping the traffic in New York, that sadly wasn’t the case. It’s just me on a Sunday afternoon in Düsseldorf, bouncing back and forth across a busy intersection in attempt to get that perfect Manhattan vibe shot.

Amongst many others, a big weakness of mine are vintage cars. So, besides my old dream of driving one around Côte d’Azur (still working on that), I’ve always wanted to shoot a 70’s inspired editorial with a car just like that and guess what?! When the least expected the stars aligned. We spotted this dream of a car back at Paris Fashion Week when we were walking towards Seine after a show at Palais de Tokyo. There she was, the car I always had in my mind in the most perfect shade of caramel. Should I even add that it all seemed to be as planned, considering that I was wearing this quite 70s inspired look (I’m stuck at this decade) in head to toe neutrals?! I swear, this was probably the speediest editorial we have orchestrated – hashtag dream work day.
