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?

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!

Paris: The Cool Checks

20131230-054208 PM.jpg

Paris is full of fashion inspirations! But the trend here that is dominating here is definitely a chunky sweater styled with sneakers and simple jeans/leggins. And this street style fashionista I caught made it even better and hotter- the Celine Cabas bag from AW13 is AMAZING… I personally love this. And you?

Mules are Back

Gianvito Rossi mules

O-oh. For some it’s yay, and some nay, but mules are back. These super un-healthily uncomfortable wedge-heel-boot shoes is totally back at the SS14 runways. In reality, these shoes look really sexy on your legs, but from the other side is it really worth to hurt your feet? Surely, some designers made it professionally with smart shoemakers (note Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham), and some made it in their own way… these quirky Celine mules ARE crazy!
