NYFW S/S12 Highlights

Jason Wu
If you were thinking Jason Wu had nothing new to offer, you might want to reconsider. The designer, who is famous for his perfect tailoring and sleek silhouettes, offered a surprisingly edgy S/S collection. Collaborating with none other than graffiti artist KAWS, Wu took a risk and introduced the audience to a refreshing and certainly more rock'n'roll woman. The graphic black and white ensembles were followed by confident brights, and a strong floral print designed by KAWS himself which were paired with bold orange lips and matching nails for maximum effect.

Long Hot Summer

Another great summer comes to an end. It has been one of the best summers I ever had. I think being away for a year made me realise how lucky I am to call this place home. There is nothing quite like summer on the French Riviera and this year was no exception, but I guess it was time for reality to kick back in. I am off to London tomorrow. The blog is probably going to be a bit quieter than usual and updates might be a bit sparse until I am finally settled down in my new place. I hope you all understand and are excited to start this new adventure with me. I know I am!

On The Road


Living so close to the border, it is not rare for my family and I to take a day-trip to Italy. We usually go to Vintimillia for its extensive market, or to San Remo for its beautiful beaches and restaurants. Although I love doing this, I had never actually seen much of the rest of the Ligurian Riviera, so we decided to stop for lunch on our way to Milan in one of my mum's favourite places, Portofino. It is to Italy what Saint Tropez is to France ; a gorgeous little seaside town made famous in the 60s for its exclusive parties and guests. Just like its French equivalent, it is the perfect place to soak up the sun, relax and share a delicious meal, which is exactly what we did.

Milan Photo Diary

I'm back! Milan was amazing! It is such a beautiful, yet underrated city. We laughed a lot, visited some gorgeous places, ate delicious food, and surprisingly enough, didn't shop that much. It was the perfect end to a great summer.
