Dilek Hanif Haute Couture S/S 2013

Dilek Hanif is one the most known designers in Turkey! Her roots are naturally showing off in her designs.
It was a gray day when I went to see her collection at Crillon, but immediately after I entered the room I felt a delicate spring air covering me with all sort of warm emotions! Maybe it was the dresses with their elegant curves, all the soft colors, the work in the beadings or just the designer herself, who seemed so generous and kind. You could see that each of those dresses had a story and of course a good "storyteller" who obviously didn't miss a stitch so that the end remained intact.
I am definitely curious to find out more about Dilek Hanif...

This end of the month my Coveteur is pretty much covered in shoes, my top 3 from my latest purchases.
I absolutely love the studded and the printed ones which kind of remind me of a LV version or even Prada.

♥ Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

The cold is still pretty disturbing these days, so winter essentials are more than welcomed! I am talking about oversized coats, leather pants/skirts, warm and comfortable knits and cool beanies.
My outfit is pretty casual, nothing too over the top.
I loved mixing blue with some mustard tones, thought it was fun to mix these two colors together. 
Just so you know my tights were in a dark blue as well. What can I say?! After all I am a freak of color coordination and matchy match outfits.

Elie Saab Haute Couture S/S 2013 collection

This year Elie Saab Haute Couture was beyond words, another vivid proof that magic can happen on the runway! The bride at the end of the show was so beautiful that I almost burst into tears watching her stepping down the runway. It was one of those shows where you wanted to stop the time for few moments and absorb all the fantasy out of those dresses. Another dreamy story from a man who seems to very much enjoy our "suffering" while he "tortures" our eyes with too much beauty! Elie Saab has brought once again an ocean of dreams on the runway.

No Editions Menswear F/W 2013

A very conceptual brand, No editions with some really versatile pieces mixed with some pretty extraordinary fabrics! I particularly loved the coat from the 2nd photo above, it looks like a painted storm and the model wearing it fits perfectly into this whole idea of "hope after a nature catastrophe".

It's been a long time since I last worked on a collage of style, so today felt like the perfect day to make one with these gorgeous ladies, wearing fabulous clothes and positive energies.
I am very into cobalt blue at the moment, so these are a few of the most stunning street styles I found while searching through my archive ♥

See you soon with a new post from Men Fashion Week!

Alexis Mabille Haute Couture S/S 2013

Alexis Mabille is now one of the member of the Haute Couture club, a very honorable and hard to get place amongst 16 other colossal houses.
His collection was the most relevant proof in order to keep his place safe and to conquer the hearts of his public. Dita von Teese was smiling from the 1st row and I could see her rocking this fabulous black coat dress (3rd photo above) with an unforgettable burlesque allure that only Dita would be capable of.
It was a show covered in bows, macaroons tones and chantilly textures, all very Marie-Antoinette. 
The particular attention to details and to the craftsmanship was obvious, a sea of laces, silks, embroideries that were meticulously placed on fine fabrics.
My personal favorite was this cute jumpsuit with a lovely 'dots' pattern and a black lace tail with frills, very beautiful and dreamy (as you can see in the 4th photo above).

Cool collection from Agnes B this season with a lot of versatile pieces for Men, who are into the practical or better said smart casual! Also men who are not afraid of color (shades of green) or slim shapes.
I've also seen a lot of modern cowboys and that was really fun to watch!
I personally loved the tailored coats and blazers, I think they are worth investing in!

I honestly enjoyed the snow while it lasted and this incredible snowy Paris reminded me of all of my childhood treasure moments.
Between the shows for the Menswear Fashion Week,  I allowed myself a short walk in the "féerique" Tuileries. The feeling I had was quite something!
