Rio

In today’s post I want to reflect on my journey and express my feelings more openly.

I am finally going to Rio for good to move and to start my new life! Can not wait any longer!!!

Since the end of February 2015, (OH MY GOD! just realized that now!) I have left my London life (a year almost! CRAZY!!!).

2015 has been a year of taking lots of scary decisions for my life, and taking courageous steps towards achieving my dreams.

I am now in Brazil, when the country isn’t in it’s best shape, (but which country is ?)

Most people questions my decision, or is at least surprised for me to be moving at sure time; normally that doesn’t affect me as much.

Most time I trust my judgment. But recently it has bothered me. Maybe I am more sensitive that usual, and I also have lots of fear inside of me, but at the same time I really feel it is the right thing for my life to grow and the right place for me to be.

This whole moving period has been a bit more complicated than I thought. Right now I am still in Belo Horizonte with my family and I am kind of discovering my family for the first time and knowing everyone’s as I am staying for much longer than I ever did before.

It’s a completely new journey for me, as I have never really completely lived here in Brazil. I have come many times but always visiting or traveling. Living is obviously a total new experience for me, and to be fair I haven’t yet experienced just quite.

But I have had plenty of life experiences. Living in London has been a tremendously hard and rich experience for me to grow as a person that I am today.

I had also a very small glimpse of New York and living there (trust me it’s hardcore! But amazing equally…) and obviously I was raised in Paris. Paris is my hometown and eternal home. But weirdly I never felt like I belong there.

I am Parisian in a sense but I had always dreamed of leaving it to another more exotic place or city. Going back to Paris now is a lot more enjoyable to visit and stay than it was for me living there.

Starting this new journey here in Rio de Janeiro the city I was born and never lived is quite daunting and exciting at the same time. I am not sure where it’s going to take me, but I will definitely enjoy the ride!

Let’s see where Rio is taking me next and I want to share it here with you on the blog.

Givenchy

So Givenchy is showing a smaller collection full of sparkling details. I love the length, the transparency and the volume of it’s dresses, you can see their beauty really well in this video. I am so in the opposite of those length right now in the heat of summer in Brazil and desperate to move finally to Rio. Once there you will get a glimpse of my new life about to start. Can’t wait!

Viktor & Rolf

Viktor & Rolf called themselves fashion artist that there are for sure. It’s all an impressive collection of all white towers (totem?) of cubists form /volume that makes a statement. Obviously none of us (maybe Anna Dello Russo…) will be walking down the street especially like those poor girl trying to see what’s ahead, maybe that’s a figurative idea of 2016 we don’t know what’s ahead so we might just as well hide in fantastical clothes.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaulthier has done it again! All inspired on Le Palace a famous club house, it has a bit of the 80’s vibe the girls look so cool, it genuinely looks like its a fun night! I love that all the girls can have their own look, and be individual, some are even holding a drink and some smoking and one is even bare foot holding her heels… I mean it’s wild night and we want to be part of it!

But don’t you worry Carnaval is about to start here in Brazil and I will enjoy it fully and taking lots of inspirations.

Dior

So Dior was with no creative director, and it was the team of the collection who pulled it through, collective people working together that seems to be very trendy right now.

I really enjoyed this collection! It was freer, younger and appealing. It was no some structured and no so much Dior image, more of an interpreted version of Dior for today’s generation.

There was lots resemblance from the effortless looks that we normally see with Marc Jacobs, Prada, Marni… I felt sometime it needed a bit of direction but mostly it will be interesting to see what’s next for the brand.

Chanel

Chanel was all about sustainability and the future of eco fashion. There were wood chip as beading recycled paper, organic yarn and some wild cotton (does it still exist?). Couture is by far the more eco friendly fashion I would think of, besides vintage. They are pieces of craft and art and will be eternally durable for their beauty and preciosity (as couture isn’t mass produced that’s the whole point of it!)

Putting these ideas aside, The looks were fabulous as they are always. Wonderful dresses with more earthy tone. An interesting silhouette with round shoulder quite 60’s but modern nonetheless. Loved the longer length from the looks very sleek and pared back almost but Oh so chic! With the practical purse/bag for your phone and lipstick (right?) what else do you need?

I am back with couture bien sure!

Yes so I have disappeared for a while, but I want to carry on with my blog and include more post with more regularity. But since I got here so much has happened and I completely put it at the back of any of my priorities. As well I was and I am still taking my driving test, that takes up your time.

However Paris Haute Couture is happening I am writing this, it’s my favourite show and an itch got the better of me and I had to share my favourite looks with you and with my self…

Starting with Giambattista Valli is doing another classic collection and full of flowers from Paris’s garden as an hommage to the city finishing with his customary tulle ball gowns.

Brazil back and forth

So I haven’t posted for a while, I moved to Brazil stayed at my grand parent’s house started taking my driving test all over again. And then to my utter sadness Sebastien the creator of this wonderful blog and my step father passed way so suddenly. I managed to go back to Paris to help my mom and attend his funeral.

2015 has been such a strange year full of very close people passing away, lots of dreams and accomplishments realised, with lots and lots of plane traveling and living from a suitcase and making and carrying luggages constantly.

For 2016 I am not sure what’s is to come, all I know is I want to be happy, pass my driving test and have my driving licence this year! Find a place I can call home, not travel as much and stop living from lots of suitcases (I love traveling but I hate packing!), be healthier continuing eating well obviously but I really want to start exercising too, and most importantly find the best job for my life.

I am beyond excited to start this new life in Rio. I am not sure how everything will unfold, everything is still up in the air. Nothing is too much defined it’s all down to faith in my life and that it will somehow work out.

Sebastien’s departure was so unexpected and shook me and mom. Sometime I wake up and feel so lost I want to cry and curl up under the covers. Even thought he was difficult most days he was wonderful in surprising ways that you would never expected. Most times I was so frightened of him and wouldn’t dare ask him a thing. I came to Brazil knowing he was this solid person who would always be by my mom’s side whatever the situation.

This whole is left now without him, I am not sure what do, what can I do to help my mother. I feel sometime overwhelmed and trying to adjust, now I am at a moment where nothing is so certain…

Like I said all is up in the air…
