Dawn in shanghai
Bonjour!!!! I am back. Finally! After two weeks of craziness, I am finally here, feeding my baby boo Kayture with content food. I am so sorry sweet pies, if fashion week has always seemed like the most stressful period of the year, the two weeks we’ve had lately have been just as (if not more) intense.
This article will focus more precisely on our trip in Shanghai BUT let me explain briefly what happened. This period of the year has always been very rich in events, first of all because it is cruise season, so all the biggest couture brands show their newest cruise collection (kind of like a fashion week but the shows can be anywhere in the world). It is also the highly anticipated Cannes film festival season where celebrities and influencers from all over the word meet to celebrate the movie industry. Of course it is a very important fashion moment, if fashion weeks are all about the perfect street style look, Cannes is all about the perfect red carpet outfit.
So here we were, invited first of all to Shanghai by Omega to attend their international event, we then flew directly to Monaco to assist at Vuitton’s cruise show and ended up in Cannes for a crazy, and I mean CRAZY film festival season. So many things to tell you, so many stories and anecdotes to share. I simply can’t wait. From now on, you’ll be able to find updates on Kayture every single day, and it’s a promise.
It was so hard, soooo hard to post these past two weeks. Our schedule was nuts. Litterally nuts. We had a jam packed agenda with events planned hour per hour, barely had time to eat some days but it was so worth it. My heart is still filled with emotions. I have to admit that I’ve never experienced such busy and emotional time before, it was simply…incredible. Since I edit all the pictures of the blog myself and create all the content (it takes me up to 3 hours to create a post on the blog), let’s just say that it was very difficult to update Kayture as much as I usually do. No complains but we do need more people in our team!! At least I am back with tooons of content and can’t wait to tell you all the beautiful stories we accumulated bits by bits :)
It’s the second time that James and I had the chance to explore Shanghai. If the first time we stayed in the city for less than 4 days, this time we had something like a week to explore. We had a pretty busy time with Omega but still managed to squeeze in some hunting time to find THE cool places. I have to say, it was very hard to communicate as many people didn’t speak english but it was so fun and interesting to feel that small in such a vaste city like Shanghai.
We did feel super disoriented at some point. The culture is so different, the food, the behaviors. But it did shake me up a little bit and opened my eyes and mind on a lot of new things (I still have troubles understanding how it could be possible to eat dog meat for example)… I need to say that I felt much more at ease in Japan but China is a beautiful country the way it is. It was so funny to see people staring at me in the streets because of my white skin and blonde hair. Even had folks coming up to me to make pictures! James and I had so much fun hanging out in the streets of the city after a busy day of shooting for Omega in the Xin Tian Di area. For that occasion I picked a casual outfit but as always with a fashionable twist, some Chanel flats and this beautiful Omega watch on my wrist. All details bellow :)
P.S A very special surprise will be revealed this week on Kayture… Remember we told you in the beginning of the year that Kayture is turning new? Well it wasn’t only about the design of the blog or our new projects. Stay updated, I can’t wait to reveal everything.

If you dont mind could you tell me exactly what color is the Valentino Rockstud bag that you have in your pictures? I love it and cant seem to find the exact color online.
Thank you so much!
Your pants are too gorgeous!
Sublimes photos! Cette ville a l'air géniale
Love the Valentino bag, please tell me what the color is called…Thanks!
Salut Kristina, je suis beaucoup ton blog, depuis presque le début mais c'est mon premier commentaire. J'adore ton style et ta personnalité mais je trouve là que tu fais preuve d'ethnocentrisme. Dire que les chinois mangent du chien, c'est d'un cliché sans nom et peu répandu. Les chinois qui mangent du chien le font parce qu'ils sont pauvres, souvent dans les campagnes, et n'ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour se nourrir correctement. Il n'y a pas de quoi juger là dessus! Et pour rajouter que les asiatiques prennent souvent les "blancs" en photo, c'est vrai! En france, des coréens m'avaient prises en photo :)
Enfin, très jolies photos, je suis heureuse pour toi que tu fasses tous ces voyages, tout ce qui t'arrives est merveilleux, bonne continuation !
The outfit is amazing, I love your Chloè trousers! And Shangai must be so beautiful to visit! Can't wait to see all the post and know about the news here on Kayture ♥

I completely understand the feeling of being out of your comfort zone, I visited Kuala Lumpur last year and it was a huge culture shock! Felt completely out of place but it was such an interesting and special experience at the same time. Love these photos. xxhttp://www.bynicolelouise.com
Wow this sounds crazy but following you on Instagram I could see that you were really enjoying your time! This might sound strange but if you need people to support you work-wise I would be happy to help you out. I mean, I am only a little blogger living in Paris (but also with Geneva roots) but I share all your interest in fashion, lifestyle and travels and on top love craving around Internet.http://www.le-dimanche-matin.blogspot.com
Love the pictures... Love the pants! And can't wait for the news!!
I really know what you're talking about :D Cannes is truly crazy but also an amazing and magical time :) You looked gorgeous on the red carpet. Especially your white dress for Jimmy's Hall was stunning :) I like your Shanghai Streetstyle. Those pants are cool and they look so comfy!http://celebritiesandfashionnews.blogspot.de/
Have a nice day :)
It must be pretty difficult to recognize the road signs, since they were all written in Chinese:)
I love your blog!
Such beautiful pics!!! I'm in awe that you edit and write everything yourself!!! Makes your blog even better:o) But you could hire someone to do the pic editing, maybe...so you have a little bit more quality time for yourself:o)
Je suis vraiment "fan" si on peut dire ainsi ! Tout chez toi est un vrai modèle pour moi. Ton style vestimentaire... J'adore ! Et j'imagine très bien les regards des habitants sur toi. Je suis allée en Bulgarie il y a quelques années et ils n'avaient vraiment pas l'habitude de voir une jeune fille noire alors tous les regards étaient braqués sur ma soeur et moi. C'est quand même étrange comme sensation ! Quoiqu'il en soit, super article encore une fois.
Wow, its looks so nice there! I hope you at least get a week rest now, you must be so tired! Glad you both had a great time, look forward to seeing the next posts :D love from Summer.http://the-twins-wardrobe.blogspot.com/
I love those trousers, the silhouette is so chic!
you are seriously gorgeous.. you look stunning in any attire.. your smoky eyes, bright red lips and flawless fair skin undeniably enhancing your beauty. on top of that, your smile is very angelic.. love your smile so much! really adore your blog as the pictures taken are stunning and high quality. every pictures tell a different story. wish i can go travelling too someday.. you are really my inspiration. love from malaysia. ;)
Damn it Vogue!
It´s not easy to look good on flats and large pants but you nailed it!! Cool!http://damnitvogue.blogspot.pt/

OMG I LOVE YOUR STYLE KRISTINA, LOOKS LIKE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL TRIP, I HOPE I GET TO VISIT SHANGHAI ONE DAY.
I am so obsessed with your blog, definitely the best one by far! I'm glad you're back and I can't wait for you to share your other adventures as well! I'm also excited to hear the news about the "new" Kayture, I can't wait !
I love the pics! Glad you're back. I have to say, though, I don't like these trousers. I mean, the colour is gorgeous but you're a very skinny girl and they make you look fat and shorter. Skinny pants always the best for you, girl!
Beautiful photos! I really love this easy and elegant outfit!
I love the natural and still so elegant look of this outfit. The color and style of the trousers are just amazing. As always such a timeless outfit with your personal Chinese twist, as I would call it :)http://anovamelody.blogspot.com
Such easy trousers - love them.
So happy that you post a new article. I looked everyday if something new and finally it is a new post. Love this outfit. The pants are amazing. They look so stylish and comfortable and the flats are so pretty. Can't wait to see more from you from the last week. So excited.
Wish you a great day Kristina. Happy monday.
Stunning pictures of a great place! Love your hair! All the best from Munich, <3

amazing pictures, and love the comfy but still fashionable outfit! <3

Such lovely pictures! Can't wait to see everything:)
Please stop perpetuating stereotypes, your comment about eating dog is ignorant and unnecessary. I am Chinese and I have never eaten dog in my life nor have I even seen it on the menu at a restaurant in any of my travels to China. Did you actually see it? In this day and age and especially in Shanghai, please don't act like everybody eats it and it's everywhere like chicken or beef. I'm sure you can find it if you tried but it certainly isn't served at the hoity toity Western restaurants you go to. When you are poor and starving in a rural village, you eat what is available to survive, so I'm sure it's difficult for you to understand.
Looks like a lot of fun in China.. Crazy how people stare at you because you look different, but you look stunning so why not haha..
I LOVE SHANGHAIhttp://thepocketstyle.blogspot.com/
que pasada de fotos! guapisima!
What a chic outfit! And beautiful photos.http://www.webelieveinstyle.net
Looking great! Beautiful pics of Shanghai:) XO
You know, chinese people eat dog meat like we eat chicken, it's not a problem for them.
It's just strange for us to imagine eating our lovely pet but it's because our customs. At least in China, dogs aren't more privileged than other animals (I don't why it could be better to eat fishes than dogs, you see?).
Just my opinion ;).
