Culottes are the Pants

“Culottes is a word that originated in the French language. Historically, “culottes” referred to the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late Middle Ages or Renaissance through the early nineteenth century.” And believe that or not, but they are back, just like Birkenstocks and mules. It’s just another syndrome of ugly fashion that hits the whole SS14 and AW14 season and the streets. But, they are really cool, I must admit! They won’t fit every women, but surely are easy to wear for everyday- with a chunky knit, a blouse or long coat. And culottes are the pants of the moment. So why not give it a try?

Couture Street Style

tilda_swinton_et_haider_ackermann_617106452_north_883x.1Here are my favourite street style snaps of Haute Couture week. Tilda Swinton and Haider Ackermann nailed it wearing Chanel before Chanel HC show. And Caroline de Maigret… perfect as always, also in Chanel. And everybody likes Chloe’s pre-fall 2014 blue coat! Photos from Vogue Paris, Le 21 Eme,

Paris: Always Together in Le Galliera

20140101-064145 PM.jpg
Between the walls of the adorable building of Musee Galliera in Paris, I met this couple- she, dressed in black, and him, dressed in black (and a lovely fur colour I am envy about!). Both in hats. This lovely couple definitely got something about them- their attitude to dress how they feel, making a perfect match. Here are some snaps from Musee Galliera where the Alaia exhibition took place- soon more to come!
