Notting Hill

London somehow calls for cozy sweaters and very big scarves. As soon as we arrived in the English capital I found myself craving for fall outfits, new coats, hot teas, fireplaces… You know, basically everything related to fall and its so called sweater weather.

I wore this super sweater weather look for our first day at London Fashion Week – once again I decided to go for something quite low key and played with some nice accessories to spice it up a little!

This scarf is honestly the best thing that ever happened to me. I swear: it is just SO warm and cozy! Plus it is so large it can actually double either as a poncho or as a blanket – which, let’s admit, can be pretty handy ;)

— I’m wearing:
SWEATER: T by Alexander Wang
SCARF: Acne Studios (budget)
JEANS: Paige Denim
WEDGES: Balenciaga (budget)
BAG: Sophie Hulme via Young British Designers
WATCH: Daniel Wellington
SUNNIES: Céline (similar)

My impressions from the Topshop Unique SS15 show

  • DSC_9694

The Topshop Unique SS15 show was very impressive – the show space was huge, and the guests included lots of amazing bloggers and also some of the most prestigious names of the industry, such as Anna Wintour, Scott Schuman and Eva Chen.

London Fashion Week is actually quite different from New York. It seems calmer (at least to me), people are more relaxed and seem to be enjoying the fashion a little bit more than in New York, which I found absolutely amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love NYFW and I feel incredibly grateful to have had the chance to attend it – but somehow after a week of fancy pants events and general rush, being slightly more low key in London feels just great!

The Topshop Unique show was super cool in itself, with Cara Delevingne both opening and closing. There were lots of sporty cuts, bright colors, amazing shoes, and the most beautiful pleated sheer skirts ever.

I was really lucky to have Luca with me as he managed to capture some incredible shots from the runway.. I’ll let you see the pictures for yourselves! Got a favorite look? ;)

Park Avenue

Good morning from London! We arrived yesterday and enjoyed a few hours off duty in the city, riding bicycles in Hyde Park and window shopping on Regent Street.

Lucky me managed to catch a cold in the plane back from New York (thank you air conditioning…) and therefore it definitely felt good to relax for a few hours before immersing ourselves in the crazy Fashion Week atmosphere again. It felt good but well, I am back on track now and ready to make the most of our short stay in London!

Can’t wait to share our LFW activities with you all. We have quite a light schedule this time and it will definitely allow us to enjoy the city a little bit more, hopefully I’ll be able to share some of this with you as well :)

In the meantime here’s a look I wore in New York last week, more precisely to attend the Tommy SS15 show. I went for this lace blouse of mine and paired it with my new bag crush from Stella McCartney - what do you think?
