Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of DJ’ing at the opening of the new and biggest H&M in Europe. I carefully selected the tracks that I was going to play at the event for months in advance, changing a few of them in the way but overall I was so happy with the entire playlist. I will share the entire set with you guys later next week. I hope you like it and huge thanks again to H&M for having me and letting me share my passion for music with all the people who attended! (You can watch some previews of my set here).

Commando

Almost…

Acne studios has launched underwear!

Now, I’ve mentioned before my specific taste for underwear, white for summer, black for winter. But its equally as hard to find good nude underwear. The kind you need for white pants, or anything remotely sheer. The elastic waist band is even wide enough not to cut into your sides. Plus both styles are available in a lovely mix of neutrals like grey, white, black and and of course nude.

So there you have it. My new nude underwear, almost as good as going commando! Do you have a favorite brand?

PS. They also made mens styles, perfect for Erik :)

It’s official, still a bit strange to say but… I moved to Los Angeles.
I know, it’s already been a year and a half going back and forth and I will always go back to Europe every month and a half/two months for work (my own company still is in Milano for now), in addition to travel the world in the meanwhile.
Where’s the big change then? This time everything is getting more real: I found a place in Hollywood and I’m ready to live my personal Californian dream, spending most of my time here.
Super excited and a bit scared at the same time. Wish me good luck :)

E’ ufficiale, è ancora un po’ strano da dire ma.. Mi sono trasferita a Los Angeles.
Lo so, è ormai un anno e mezzo che faccio avanti ed indietro e tornerò in Europa ogni mese e mezzo/due mesi per lavoro (la mia società è per ora ancora a Milano), oltre a continuare a viaggiare in giro per il mondo nel frattempo.
Qual è il cambiamento quindi? Questa volta è tutto più reale: ho preso una casa a Hollywood e sono pronta a vivere il mio personale sogno Californiano, passando qui la maggior parte del mio tempo.
Iper entusiasta ed un pò spaventata allo stesso tempo. Fatemi un grosso in bocca al lupo :)

Stories is Here

Run, don’t walk.

Or just get online real quick. I’m super stoked (that sincere because I don’t say stoked about very much) because of course, I love their beauty line. The last time I was in Paris, Emily and I visited the store and she found me an hour later, arms covered in lipstick and eye liner swatches with a pile of products in my basket. So yeah, I like actually really love it.

The full beauty collection won’t be available in the US right away (I’ll obviously, keep you posted on that front) but you can still stock up on some goodies (in store and online). So for now, you’ll just have to deal with getting your hands on all of the REALLY COOL SHOES, leather shorts, silk tops, structured coats…. You get it. Now go!

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL

September was a crazy month, a whirlwind to be honest but Fashion Week season is always such a burst of inspiration and creativity when it comes to styling. I decided to put together some of my favorite details from most of my September looks. Its always so different to see them mixed up together, more fun in my opinion…You can probably notice some constants in my accessories and the thing is, once I get to wear an accessory I love, I will probably wear it for months until my style changes slightly. Can you guess which are my favorite accessories?

Apologies for the radio silence over the summer months, it has lingered on for so long my siblings wanted to kick my potato-couch butt off to find some content!  Freelance work and travelling were to blame for the lack of self presence on the blog, I really enjoyed the ‘blog-vacation’ and not carrying my pelvis-bashing camera around with me everyday, I prefer being socially active on Instagram like I always have when I don’t have time to blog.  Please be aware there’ll be some changes on my blog, the blog’s re-design is currently in development and at the same time trying to expand my portfolio in fashion and portrait photography.  Why?  I need an exit plan.

No comment.

This style post is long overdue, it was a collaboration photoshoot I did with MCM back in early April not along after I returned from Thailand and Hong Kong.  Looking tan-less and pale well suited for the London weather, feeling quiet proud of my un-used legs looking shapely and lengthy in my nude Kurt Geiger heels.  I fell in love with the Elda cross-body bag the minute I saw it displayed elegantly on the shelf at their standalone store on Sloane Street, I had to shoot it with a giant MCM bunny without a doubt.


In collaboration with MCM.

THE DAY I MET PAUL McCARTNEY

Stella7Stella9 Stella1 Stella2 Stella3 Stella5 Stella8 Stella4

This has been one of those; “Is this really happening?” moments, seriously. I have to be completely honest, I rarely get star struck and maybe its because I have been lucky enough to have seen many talented people at different events, fashion weeks and so on. Its always very surreal to bump into Hollywood stars at random cafes in LA (I still have to tell you that story), or walk past famous singers or my favorite designers (I also have to tell you this story), but standing next to a Rock legend, a Beatle, Paul McCartney was another level of crazy.

I took these photos at a very exclusive event during London Fashion Week when I was filming with Canon. They told me the event would be so exclusive I had to go by myself, no +1 allowed and made me hope to bump into some familiar faces. The event was for the launch of Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet collection and I just couldn’t not say no.
When I got to the venue near Bond Street in London, I took a deep breath, gave my name at the front and got in. I knew or assumed I would see some famous faces but I never expected to see that many.
Once I was in, one of the waiters dressed in a crisp white shirt and clearly hired from one of London’s best modeling agencies (same goes for most of the male model waiters that night) came towards me with a silver tray full of glasses of champagne, I took one and started to glance through the room. Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson, Drew Barrymore were standing just there, in front of me and made me wonder what had I done to deserve that spot and how on earth did I manage to infiltrate that world. They were certainly not the only celebrities, the whole room was full of British and Hollywood stars and as I was walking amongst them, I had a moment of realization; They are just normal people, like you and me, people who happen to be very good at what they do which is a very realistic aim for you and me.
I was pondering on all of these thoughts as I felt someone bump into the back of me, I turned around and it was Paul McCartney…Sir Paul McCartney! Now I have a very good story to tell my children one day; “Let me tell you the story of the day I -literally- bumped into Paul McCartney”.

Stuck On You

Spotted straight from the spring runway, one of Anya Hindmarch’s stickered-up satchels– you remember the leather stickers she also created, right? I think what I love most about this bag is that it reminds me of the notebooks I would cover in stickers and doodles when I was in school.

 

A little bit of nostalgia never hurt anybody, right?

Gladiators in flats! (Get it? Scandal? Anyone?)

It took me a little bit of time to come around to these gladiator sandal-boot hybrid from the Carven show, but now I’m sold. I think they will look cool with a suede dress come spring. The best part? The fact that you don’t have to worry about getting a pedicure before you wear them…

Ready, Set, Gaultier

It’s time to couture.

Today marks Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s last RTW collection and the end of an era. After 38 years of ready-to-wear collections, Gaultier and his marinière meets punk style, is choosing to focus his creativity on couture, perfumes and of course costumes!

We will miss your crazy catwalks Mr. Gaultier. But we can’t wait to see what this freedom brings to couture !

Denim Dreams

They do come true.

Marques’ Almeida is set to release a collection with Topshop come October 9th. (Please take a moment to add it to your calendar. You good? Okay.) It’s 68 pieces (!!!) and the frayed denim looks are everything you ever hoped for. I’ve been a fan since I spotted Felicity in one of their dresses. I like that they’re taking something basic (denim) and added a cool twist to it.

For now, I’ve got my eye on that denim parka…

Meet Vetements

Yes, clothes!

This fashion week, I was really looking forward to seeing a new Parisian line called Vetements. The collection, designed by seven anonymous designers, was relatable but still appealed to those looking for something a bit different and yes, cool. I heard one woman outside the show yesterday say, “This is going to be the next big thing, I can feel it.”

And you know what, I think she’s right.

The Edit

So, I don’t have a dressing room in my new apartment*. It’s a challenge every day, since I love being able to spread out (“Hey, it’s been awhile since I’ve baked any cakes, why not store my sweaters in the oven!”) and I love to accumulate lots of things (“Yes, I’m sure this perforated raincoat will work perfectly on some rainy day without rain! I’m keeping it!”)
So now I’ve got to make it work with two small closets and a dresser.

I’ve had to totally retrain myself and it’s been happening in three phases…

Good riddance!

Dumbfounded when I saw everything that had piled up in my old apartment (I had just dedicated a tiny room to all my shoes and bags) (two more years and I would have ended up turning the elevator into my “belt cabinet”) (the neighbors would have understood what it’s like to be a poor little fashion girl, right?) I had to come to terms with the facts – I could either rent a storage space or I’d have to get rid of 70% of my clothes.

Since I was in the mood to lighten up, I decided to get rid of everything.

So I started by setting aside everything I wanted to keep.

Then I made a pile of everything I wanted to sell.
Then I made a pile of everything I wanted to give to friends.
Then a pile of everything I wanted to donate to the Red Cross.

Then I took the pile of everything I wanted to keep and started the process all over again.
Three or four times.
Until what was left over would actually fit into my new apartment.
Honestly, it was a big deal and pretty emotional. You get attached to your clothes, it’s crazy!!!

I loved having my friends over for long sessions of trying on clothes. My mom and her friend came to visit just at the right time, and both of them ended up leaving with three extra suitcases.
I even gave them the suitcases, in fact.

I had accumulated about a dozen of them.

Organizing

Once I had totally skimmed off all the excess (it took about two weeks, you know – it’s a huge job) my wardrobe had taken on a new color. Literally. I had pretty much only kept neutral colors (gray, white, beige, black) (which have always been my favorite), a few colors (red, pink, green, blue), a few prints, and finally, very few super fashion pieces.

I realized that everything I’d bought in fashion monster time, I had only worn maybe two times. Considering the price I paid for them and all the traveling I could have done instead, I think I’m cured now, thank you very much.

I also saw I’d made some amazing investments too. My Saint Laurent bag that I’ve worn every day since I bought it. My beige Stella coat, my Valentino ballerinas, my Céline blouse. And a bunch of things I love from Zara that have stood the test of time.

I had to make a winter pile and a summer pile (I never used to do that before, I used to say “But there are no seasons anymore!!! I wear my tee-shirts in the winter anyway!”) and that also helped me to figure out what I actually needed right away, and what I could store in boxes under my bed for later and take out as soon as it got chilly.

So now I sleep ON my clothes. And I sleep well ;)

Putting it all together

I have to say, I’m totally into decorating my new place right now.

It’s kind of taking the place of clothes – searching for a couch is definitely my new life goal – especially since I had to adjust really quickly this summer and think about what I actually wear compared to what I buy. And now I have zero desire to go back to how I was before – completely buried in clothes.

So now that I have to think about every square inch of storage space, every time I’m about to buy something, I ask myself what I’ll have to get rid of to make room for it.
And that’s really, really changed the way I dress and the way I buy things.
I buy less, and I get rid of things I don’t wear without even blinking.

And this weekend, I realized how much I’d changed without even realizing it. When I was packing for fashion week (I’ve only got two suitcases now – I gave away five of them), I organized my trip outfit by outfit.
I hadn’t really ever done that before – I always preferred to stuff as many things as possible in my suitcase, telling myself I’d figure it out when I got there and that “I dress according to my mood, so how could I possibly plan outfits in advance!” but that’s exactly what I did this time**.

I took photos of each outfit and only brought what I really needed.

The result? Two super light suitcases (I didn’t even have to sit on them to get them to close!!! No overweight baggage fee!!! No need to buy another suitcase to bring back all the stuff I bought!!!) (Yeah – that’s why I had accumulated so many suitcases and $20 duffel bags) And that’s when I started to wonder…

Was I going to end up naked by the end of Fashion Week?

Ahahahah. We’ll see.

So what about you? How do you deal with limited space at home? Do you have any tips? Do you sleep with all your clothes under your bed too? Is it easy for you to get rid of things?

Window Dressing

I stumbled upon Marie-Hélène de Taillac’s shop while walking through Saint-Germain.

It was the windows that caught my attention. They were so sweet! Very “Alice in Wonderland” feeling. I learned from Marie that her niece creates the scenes in the windows, last month it was pink flamingos!

Almost all of her jewelry is one of a kind, so no two pieces are the same. I think my favorites were the iridescent moonstone pieces!

MHT has shops in Paris, Tokyo and New York!

Tie It Up

I am stealing this idea from the Steven Alan presentation. It’s super easy: just knot together your shirt tails in front and voila! I like it with a pair of shorts or layered over a maxi dress. Of course, you don’t have to go with a neckline quite as low as the models (if you do, grab some double stick).

Thanks Steven!

BLOGLOVIN’ AWARDS

Special night in New York City surrounded by friends. The Bloglovin’ Awards are becoming a tradition. I still remember the first one about 3 years ago, when the venue had the most surreal view to Columbus Circle and Central Park and where the night ended with all of us renting a really crappy limousine and buying pizza at some dodgy and allegedly famous pizzeria in NYC. I quite honestly don’t know whether it was actually a famous place but the owner had a whole wall covered in picture frames posing with every celebrity you can possibly imagine.

This night didn’t end with pizza at 4:00am but it at the PHD rooftop with the most incredible view of Manhattan.

HUGE thanks to Kim Garduno for being such a superstar and giving me this beautiful old school hairdo for the awards and to Sportmax for dressing me for the night!

The Guest Editor

Le sigh, Marie-Amélie Sauvé is the guest editor of the new Self Service.

Alex has already reminded me 10 numerous times to bring her back a copy of the latest Self Service from Paris. I also can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. A girl who starts her career at French Vogue and is best friends with Nicolas Ghesquière (#NBD) ranks high on my I Want to Be Her list. I’m looking forward to seeing her creative process come to life in this new issue. Now I just have to pick my favorite cover…

The issue is out now… if you can find it!

Flower Power

See by Chloe knows what I’m talking about.

The sweet daisy printed denim pieces have me wanting to do denim on denim only come Spring.

And if the Canadian tuxedo isn’t quite your thing, the pieces work great on their own too.

Peace, love and daisies.

Tenue de Soiree

I never know what to wear out at night.

It always annoys me and I end up wasting way too much time. I lose confidence in myself and in my taste, I spend forever in front of the mirror, I take dumb selfies and send them to my friends, and since they can’t see anything anyway because I’m terrible at selfies, it’s even worse, so they stress me out by saying things like:

“Need another photo, I can’t even tell what you’re wearing”
“What’s that thing in front of your dress?” (my phone, obviously)
“What color is that? Cat pee yellow?” (bad lighting)
“How can someone who’s a photographer be so bad at selfies?” (shut up right now)

Yep, because obviously I always wait until the last minute.
So I stress everyone out.
Because I hate evening wear.

Usually when I want to dress up to go out at night, I always start out thinking I’ll wear a dress.
Yes. I have this idea in my head, like most girls, that “night” means “dress”.
Don’t try to figure it out, that’s just the way it is.

So then I start the useless and frantic search for the “perfect last minute dress” which:

1/ Doesn’t exist
2/ Is very, very expensive
3/ Can’t be found at the last minute. To be perfect, a dress always has to be altered, otherwise you’re a model, in which case, what are you doing reading this post?

By then, not only am I irritated, I’m also exhausted AND frustrated.

For a while, I had resolved my problem with a few really cool tuxes, but one mustn’t go overboard with the joys of wearing a suit, especially when you have short hair.
If you do, you’ll quickly turn into Ellen De Generes, and even though I ADORE Ellen, I really don’t want to have her look.

You know, because at night, I want to be super feminine, a bit femme fatale.

But the problem is – no dresses look good on me.
No dresses look good on anyone, actually, if you really want to know how I feel about it.

That’s always what I’m thinking to myself when I watch the awards.
I like them well enough, I play the game, I choose my favorites, I feel like I’m taking a trip to planet tralala – it’s fun for about two seconds.

But most of the time in those ceremonies, it’s like “cool” has left the building and been replaced by slightly awkward women forced into an obsolete definition of sexiness (with their breasts imprisoned in push up bras, their waists strangled) that doesn’t look anything at all like the free woman in motion that I love and want to be.

Oh hey, by the way. Since we were talking about Céline on Friday, and how Phoebe Philo redefined the way we dress and the kind of women we have the right to be (cool, sensual, comfortable) – just looking at her collections makes you realize.

Not a single evening gown.

The closest thing is a romper. Hands in pockets, high heels – her rompers totally borrow from the “woman in a tux” attitude.
So it’s back to the same idea.

There are exceptions, of course. Valentino dresses that make you want to cry they’re so beautiful. Dior by Raf Simmons. Cate Blanchett in Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. But girls who have Cate Blanchett’s allure are very rare.

So when it comes to evening wear, there aren’t many places left for me to look for ideas.
I look at what Jenna Lyons does, what Emmanuelle Alt does, and what Phoebe Philo does, on the rare occasion she goes out.

So that’s the thing. It was when I went to a black tie event that I realized what my real problem was. I don’t like evening gowns.

I ended up in pants and a bustier, but honestly, I really would have liked to have something new and beautiful to wear. A new attitude, a new femininity – something truly modern.

But I think it’s clear now: for the time being, that doesn’t exist. Or it’s very, very rare.

I really think it’s time to redefine evening wear for women, don’t you think?

CANON FASHION DIARES

Phew!!! I just came back from London and I haven’t felt/been that busy in a very long time. I am very used to doing my “from New York straight to London FW” marathons but I am never quite prepared for the amount of work, combined with the Jetlag. I have to say though, I do this out of choice and because I LOVE IT.
I was in London filming for Canon and once again, since they have just launched the new Canon EOS 100D in White which has become my new favorite small camera to take around with me.

Filming with Canon is always a pleasure and I hope gave you a small glimpse of how a day during Fashion Week really is, although we have to add a lot more shows, a lot more meetings in between and most importantly, a lot of catching up with friends who are in town as well.

See you next time!!!

Sticker Up

Anya Hindmarch is a quirky genius.

Remember last season’s potato chip clutch? Well, this time around she is getting us with stickers.

Debuting today with her spring collection is a limited edition collection of leather stickers (in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of CHAOS FASHION) that you can use to embellish your handbag/phone/best friend. The current selection features a Mickey Mouse hand doing various gestures and more styles will be added soon. I’m already going through my closet trying to figure out what I want to “sticker up” first. If you need some inspiration, take a look back at Sue’s embellished bag

Day three of my New York fashionweek: as first look of the day I opted for a total black outfit.
The focus obviously was on the hair that, thanks to the Redken team and Sara Weinstock diamond headpieces, shined even more than usual :)

Giorno tre della mia fashionweek newyorkese: come primo look ho optato per un outfit total black.
