I am currently writing this article from my hotel room in NYC, an hour before rushing out to attend a show. I seriously can’t wait to share with you our fashion week coverage! This season is very special for me as we are, first of all, doing all four cities in a row (NY/London/Milan/Paris) AND that we flew in our new Kayteam member Fiona to help us rock this fashion month! It’s a lot of new experiences, challenges, adventures and emotions. We are having so much fun, working super hard but oh dear, we have some really cool shots planned for you already! So get ready :)

Meanwhile, I still have a few articles that I’d like to show you, such as this one that we’ve created during our stay in Shanghai with Montblanc. It was our second time staying at the Peninsula hotel near the Bund and since we had a little bit of free time on the day after our arrival, we decided to wake up super early and explore the neighborhood. I have to say, something about it definitely reminded me of some elements I’ve encountered while I was in India. Out and about with my Hermès bag around the Peninsula where it’s literally a Chanel, Vuitton and Fendi parade. But heading away from the hotel, even if only for 5 minutes, it was a completely different scenery.

The contrast was pretty imposant. From incredible luxury, we were now lost in between two completely different areas of the city, each one of them something like 2 minutes away from each other. I have to say, at first, I felt a little uncomfortable and confused, especially because I was dressed up that way and obviously because people were staring. But then I realized that most of them were smiling at me, more curious than anything. So many artisans were working in the streets, people everywhere walking to an up-beat rythme. Shanghai is a city that lives. Everything is so bold and vivid. This energy is definitely contagious. It felt like a breath of fresh air to me.

That morning when we woke up, I went for a super casual look that I showed you previously and then changed when seing all the girls dressed up in such a chic, fancy way while strolling on the Bund. Guys, I tell you, Dior bags everywhere. And it was way too hot for jeans. So I decided to switch up for this black and white look, Alexander Wang heels and this beauty of a Hermès bag for the rest of the day. I have to say, I am absolutely obsessed with it, it’s so timeless and iconic. Hope you guys enjoy!

Kristina, you look beautiful and I enjoyed reading as always but please take this seriously and eat a little bit more!!! You look so thin as if the next gust of wind will overthrow you!!! I think you are now on the border of looking beautiful or just too thin. Too thin is when you can see all the bones up there just as in this post. Sorry but I think as a loyal reader I have to write it. Please eat a bit more, even if this is a stressful month!!!
xoxo Kirsten

I reallly love the street look kind of photographer, so elegantly incorporated both style and daily lives. Love it!!

So beautiful!

Love your shorts and how you layer your necklace!

Love those shoes! Even though they have a pointed heel, there’s something about them that looks so comfy! I went to China for the first time this year, and it was definitely a huge culture shock.but it’s so interesting learning about how people love on the other side of the world.


perfect outfit!
love the bag.
have fun in ny :-))
xox inga ♥

that outfit is fabulous ! I love the black and white, so trendy for fall… You are wearing it perfectly :)

Love from France, Victoria

Just perfect, this outfit is amazing, these shorts are so cool and the white shirt is classic and chic. Love so much the beautiful and iconic handbag, it’s like a dream. These sandals are wonderfull, I need them in my life

You looked much healthier in the older photos I’m afraid. Hope you give an image to those young girls who read your blog that being healthy looking (not bony or skinny) is healthy for female body and hormones…

Amazing look Kristina. Love the black and white. It is so chic and classic and that it what I love at your style. I always think about to buying a leather short, because it is really trendy right know and you can style it so many ways. I did it and when I saw this post I was really happy that I have also a leather shorts now.
Wish you a great sunday and a lot of fun at nyfw. I look at your Instagram all the time and you look so lovely in your outfits. Pretty Kristina.

Les photos sont très belles ! Ca doit être difficile de voir un contraste aussi brutal entre luxe et pauvreté …

Am in love with the white and black trend. You’ve definitely nailed it for sure. The leather shorts are certainly a must this season as well. Everyone wants leather this! Leather that! Leather everything! Haha. Shanghai must of been beautiful though. I am very intrigued on what you have in store for us from your Fashion Weeks photos! Gosh, honestly can’t wait! xx I know you’ll rock the killer outfits, Kristina! :)

C’est ce que j’aime a propos de Shanghai, ce contraste saisissant, ce melange de grattes ciels, de grosses avenues, de bars ultra branches et juste derriere tout ca, un quartier chinois typique… C’est la que c’est le plus intéressant d’ailleurs, parce qu’on se sent soudainement un peu paume…
