September outfit

· Fashion, Illustration

Indian summer, considering the automnal temperatures I think we can definitely forget about it. I was not really inspired by fall outfits ?

I didn’t have much choices, I had to start looking into it. I had the idea of this small collage/drawing of a silhouette I would like to have for these chilly days.

 

Red and check

I ordered these red velvet pants and fingers crossed they will fit me well.

Like pretty much everyone lately, I was looking for a checked “boyfriend” blazer: I found mine last week at Zara but the ones from Mango and La Redoute seem to have potential too if you haven’t found yours yet.

 

Automnal forecast

It’s also time to look for comfy sweaters: I already adopted this red jumper and I liked it so much that I ordered the cream-coloured one.

As per the shoes, this season I will alternate with pleasure between this pair of patent leather boots and this kind of masculine derby shoes.

I also feel like wearing khaki/grey/mustard colours and soft scarves (I might fall for one from Acne).

Otherwise, not much change in terms of look (am I boring?): I still want to stripped down my closet as much as possible, and keep wearing what I already have by updating my style with some new elements from this season. (English translation by Quiterie)

Remix your style

· Fashion

Last Thursday, on my social channels I showed you the behind the scene of a photoshoot for Swarovski. Today, here is the result!

Indeed I had the honour to be chosen as ambassador for the new Remix jewellery collection along with 3 other bloggers/youtubers with different styles: Anne, Emmy and Sarah.

 

Remix my style

These magnetized jewels are magic and ingenious. From simple bracelets, they can turn into very short necklaces or long chains when combine with another one (or more). Possibilities are infinite.

Swarovski asked me to do a “photoshoot at my image” with the help of a professional photographer, Nicolas Gerardin, more used to photoshoot Karlie Kloss (muse of the collection), Barbara Palvin or Kendall Jenner (!)

 

Shooting preparation

“A shooting at my image…”: I first had a look into the most simple silver jewellery from the Remix collection..

Then, I decided to chose a masculine style because as you know I love the “boyish” style and I feel more comfortable with this androgynous feminity.

Therefore I shared with the Swarovski team and Nicolas my inspirations and desires: black and white, lout poses like Christine and the Queens, simplicity and natural. The only thing missing was the place of the shooting!

 

A high scenery

I was thinking about a half industrial and half aerial decor for these pictures. Therefore I thought about a private rooftop that I discovered during my collaboration with Renaissance hotels.

By chance, the team of Renaissance République hotel kindly let us access it last Thursday and after a few vertiginous shots on top of Paris rooftops, we were all set!

I hope you will enjoy the atmosphere of this shooting. On my side I was very happy about this result : a bit darker than the usual pictures I post on this blog but which fits anyway one of the facets of my personality.

To remix my style without loosing myself, I guess the challenge was therefore successfully met.

 

PS : There is a contest to give you the opportunity to get invited to the Swarovski party happening this Thursday night, to meet me with one of your friend and both receive a shining souvenir: more details here. (English translation by Quiterie)

My 10 Go-To spots in Tokyo

· Food, Illustration, Travel

Last April As You Like magazine asked me to share my 10 go-to spots in Tokyo and create an illustrated map for the Spring issue dedicated to Asia.

I love drawing maps, food and small details: it’s a time consuming job but it’s really something I like doing when I have time.

 

10 spots in Tokyo

I thought it would be a nice idea to share it on the blog, especially for those who didn’t get the chance to get the magazine.

I decided to update it (because I changed my haircut!) and animate it exclusively for the blog. I hope you will like it and it will give you ideas for your future trip to Japan. So here are the addresses (you may already know a few if you follow my blog!):

 

1. STEAKHOUSE NOBU : Next time I will be back in Tokyo, I hope I will be able to visit this cute Japanese couple, owner of this unpretentious place but who serve delicious omurice (omelette with rice) and grill plancha. (Details here & here)

2. NAMCO NAMJATOWN : The entertainment park dedicated to food, with super kawaii ice creams and where we can also discover strange flavours: can you take up the challenge to try wasabi, curry or oyster flavour?? (Details here)

3. SPA DE L’HÔTEL ANDAZ : An exceptional place to relax with personalised treatment and Tokyo tower view. (Details here)

4. DOVER STREET MARKET GINZA :The perfect place to discover the huge collection of the Comme des garçons brand and get a few souvenirs (striped shirt or shoes) ! (Details here)

5. KYUKYODO : Traditional Japanese stationary store for anyone crazy about origami papers and sophisticated greeting cards. (Details here)

6. GYOZARO :Delicious gyoza at unbeatable prices ! (Details here)

7. KAWAII MONSTER CAFE : Rainbow colours ice creams to enjoy in 4 different rooms (ambiances) and to reveal your inner unicorn.

8. SATURDAYS NYC : Surfer shop where you can also enjoy a cafe on a rooftop terrace.

9. LOG ROAD DAIKANYAMA : Nice pedestrian alley with concept stores, bakery, bar and shop to buy generous and colourful donuts.
