There’s something about being away from your home city that kicks up your style game a notch or two. Like I mentioned in my last post, I feel like I had lived in Paris in another life. My style fits this city very well! I don’t know if it’s because I’m outside of my comfort zone or because I’m surrounded by some of the best dressed people in the world because it’s Paris Fashion Week and the street style is beyond what I could have expected.
I’m travelling with Sabrina who is the street style photographer for Street Scout and as we tour our way through the city, she’s been stopping the most stylish men and women for her site. Their outfits are very inspiring to me, you can check them all out on her feed @StreetScoutMe on Instagram.
We haven’t attended any shows as guests but have attended an event for the brand CLOSED and took the opportunity being in Paris during Paris Fashion Week to take in the street style and document it via photos and video. Sabrina has captured the video while I’ve been filming at Koche, Lacoste and Lanvin. Tonight we’re going to try to make some time for Isabel Marant and I’m still kicking myself not making it to Saint Laurent and Balmain because I was just way too exhausted. Even though we aren’t attending the actual fashion shows, the experience of being near during PFW is enough to endlessly inspire you.
This outfit was inspired by a few styles that I saw. Easy with the denim and trench, sexy with the sheer blouse and trendy with the side hung bag. Speaking of this bag, I’m so thrilled to have gotten my hands on it! It’s a Spring/Summer 2018 piece by Sonya Lee based in Toronto and she’s currently holding pre-orders for it. I’ve been wearing it everyday in Paris and it’s been a total life saver when all I want to hold is my camera and maybe a baguette ;). Shoot her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
