GOING BACK TO HYERES FESTIVAL 2017

Hyeres 2017 was really good. Putting a brand new generation of designers into the spotlight, this year’s finalists were a pretty good mix of edgy womenswear and menswear. For those who couldn’t attend, here’s the image report :  

Goodbye 2016

Let’s finish the year with a last outfit, in a casual way.   I’m taking the time between two Xmas errands to post this last outfit shot by the amazing Photocéenne. I reckon I’ve gone missing in action during the past few weeks but rest…

Teenage Dreams

Bold patches and heavy knits are taking us back to our teenage years, a time that was not so long ago.  It took me 24 years to start wearing knits and long-sleeves. I still remember being called “nuts” a few years ago, when I was…

Winter essentials are getting a fresh update today ! Forget about brogues and loafers with suit trousers, replace them with a pair of sneakers. Do as you want for the rest of your outfit, as long as you’re not adding tons of accessories and overshirts. Think…
