In between

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!
