Lost and Found

I totally forgot to post these shots I took this Summer with Anastasia. The look features some of my favorites of this year’s trends. First is heavy metal jewelries.

GANT – Silk butterfly

Pictures by Inès Monnet This silk ensemble of pants and shirt is my favorite from GANT‘s Spring-Summer 2014. The butterfly print and the lightness of the fabric made me to want to fly. Joking aside, I prefer not mix items which have a strong style (in prints and colors) together. I rather let a piece… Read More »

Pictures by Inès Monnet What if I show you two different ways to wear a shirt and a skirt in one post? First, I created an urban preppy look. I wore baseball look-alike jacket over the shirt. The skirt is made of calf leather in a subtle deep blue hue. Its length and rigidity can… Read More »

GANT – Girls in Rugger

Pictures by Inès Monnet Stealing your boyfriend’s clothes has always been common if not a trend. It took on a new fervor when Katie Holmes was “caught” with Tom Cruise’s (then her boyfriend) jeans.
