BY THE LAKE Summer mood is definitely aaaages away from the kind of climate we are now facing in Switzerland and I definitely took all the cartons full of jackets, boots and faux furs out of my depot to re-arrange my new perfect fall closet. My newest obsession : pastels. Oh my goodness. I am usually not that into baby, barbie, girly colours and everything as I think that I already have kind of that baby face and that it’s much more interesting to play on contrasts… If you know what I mean…. But I am SO in love with pastel ensembles for this fall. Candy pink, lavender, mint, baby blue : you name it! Bring it on. This time fall isn’t going to be all about the browns and burgundies for me. This time we’re going to experiment and of course the most important when you’re living in a cold country is to have a good colour palette ready. So instead of going for the traditional black coat, why not try something different this season? You can start by making baby steps and go for a gray, nude or even camel coat. OR even play it totally fun and go for the baby blue card like I did here with my new beloved Topshop coat. Okay, so as soon as I saw it I absolutely fell in love with it. It has fake fur in it and keeps you soo incredibly warm. It came with these strange buttons on the sides (usefull for those who actually like to close the coat, I personally have a weird habit of leaving it open) that I decided to take off. The colour though, the colour was perfection. So I matched this mega cozy topshop pastel blue sweater to it as well as of course some perfect light blue jeans.
I had the pleasure to shoot these images with a good friend of mine Elena Kuznetsova, who I have worked with several months ago in Paris on a fashion shoot! She is currently in Switzerland and doing such an amazing work, I always admired her fabulous eye for fashion. We decided to hop on and make some nice images since it’s been such a long time that we haven’t seen each other! So guys, you have to check out her website, she’s really doing some amazing work. Also, a lot of you folks have been asking about James and why you guys haven’t seen him on my birthday’s pictures. Well it’s very simple and nothing to worry about, since fashion week ended up we didn’t really have time for holidays and continued working on new projects. So James just took a little bit of time off, just like I did, to enjoy some time with friends and family! It’s super important for us to find a healthy balance so I think it’s really great to flow with the wind and allow yourself a little time to breath if you feel like it! I hope you guys will enjoy these images that Elena and I shot, I absolutely can’t wait to show you some more of the images we’ve done together and I am already super excited to work with her again. Isn’t she fantastic?
