Paris s/s collections 2018

Oh la la, the spring-summer collections 2018 presented in the city of love and macarons are très chique, feminine and sensual. The s/s collection 2018 by Saint Laurent presented at the Tour d’Eiffel was beautiful and breathtaking. The sculptured silhouette was small and chique, but also the mini dresses with poofy volume and delicate fabrics created a beautiful collection for the femme sensuelle and innocent. The spring-summer trend of (one or two) long earrings was seen in many s/s collections in Paris.

Elie Saab presented a beautiful collection for the modern Amazone. Lanvin went back to its roots with the cool minimalist collection of clean lines and sleek mini dresses in black and blue. Dior‘s s/s collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, inspired by the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, showed mini and long dresses in tule with an animated or written story to tell. Another s/s collection for 2018 that was chique as ever, was from Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Altuzzara with lovely dresses of artwork.

Daily luxury s/s 2016: off shoulder

An essential daily luxury for the summer is definitely the off shoulder dress or top. 

A beautiful blue (Sea), striped (Patrizia Pepe) or cool white off shouder top (Liu Jo, Tibi) in soft cotton on a dark blue denim Liu jo jeans creates a casual-chique outfit à la Olivia Palermo. Lovely lace lingerie in white, blue and soft turquoise by Victoria’s Secret and Intimissimi will look beautiful on bare shoulders. Secondly, a cotton off shoulder dress by Thakoon or Chloé is both beautiful and cool 💙. A soft cotton dress or top with bare shoulders has a beautiful and casual look, as it looks both dressed and a little sexy. You can wear your beautiful heels by Choo or Valentino, and still look casual, or dress it down with espadrilles, sandals or Choo trainers. You can’t miss with this summer essential!

Nuit en blanc

Dressed in white for a midsummer night, a dîner en blanc, or a lovely summer sunset, feels beautiful and chique 💙. Spanish or chantilly lace looks beautiful on bare skin, paired with nude Valentino heels or white Choo’s. Lovely lace dresses are essential summer pieces, for example in the spring-summer collections by Valentino, Burberry and Chloé. Secondly, an embellished white dress is an essential daily luxury on summer days, for example by Altuzzara. Another white dress that is very en vogue is the silk slipdress, inspired by lingerie and nineties coolness (Balenciaga, Courrges, The Row). Lastly, with a minimalist mini dress with long sleeves, you can wear a beautiful clutch and embellished heels by Choo or Acquazzura, showing long tan legs. And for your man? He needs a classic white tuxedo jacket, black trousers and classy Choo’s for Cuban vibes.

New year, new you 💙

Happy new year! January is a prelude to a beautiful new year and new you. Dream and love the daily luxury in your life. Try to change anything that doesn’t feel good to you. Love your life on a daily basis. Start with yoga, swim in the blue sea, drink more water and white tea, eat more fruit and biological food, love and take care of yourself, your family and the world around you.

💙 With love_ It all begins with a dream, love and hope. Dream a little dream and visualize your goals. If you can dream it, you can do it. For beautiful inspiration from Maya Angelou, Dalai Lama, and Lilo and Stitch, you can read my last post.

💙 New adventures_ Do what you love and go on an adventure. Learn how to surf, travel to Bali and Hawaii, learn a new language, find your dream job. Fall in love and go with the waves.

💙 Daily luxury for the new year_ Love your daily luxury. The new season has so many beautiful things to offer. I love the spring-summer collections for 2016, for example from Liu Jo, Valentino, and Jimmy Choo. My daily luxury for the new year: lovely Liu Jo jeans, beige Choo trainers, the Lockett petite bag, beige Valentino heels, and a cute BKR waterbottle in turquoise or peach.
