After searching far and wide for quite some time (they’re sold out everywhere!), I finally got my hands on these stunning, limited-edition, hand-made sunglasses designed by Rad Hourani in collaboration with luxury eyewear brand Mykita. In case you haven’t noticed, the only sunnies that work with my mug are strong, angular or rectangular frames. I’m one of those people who, sadly, can’t rock aviators or anything oval or round, unless they’re extremely oversized.
My beloved Rad Hourani recently went to Holland for the Arnhem Mode Biennale. Here are two ‘behind-the-scenes’ videos of his installation. I’m a big fan of Rad’s aesthetic and of course, his vision of genderless dressing.
Now if only I can lose a lot of weight to be able to fit into his clothes again… ;-) It’s not so easy especially when aging and carbohydrates are on my side!!
Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre Paris
The lovely Fred of Easy Fashion, one of my favourite French streetstyle blogs, took this wonderful photo of me at the Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre where the Louis Vuitton show took place yesterday.
Jacket, leather pants and shoes from Rad Hourani, Chanel bag, Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Topshop t-shirt.
Between you and me, I'm shocked that I look nice (ok, presentable, but I could've WERQED the LOOQUE harder) in this photo. I was all sweaty, coughing, huffing and puffing when I got to the show venue because I sprinted (in five inch heels) from the wrong metro station. Not good.
But the result, well, voila, pas mal…
Thank you Fred!
Rad Hourani is one of the breakout stars coming out of New York fashion week. I'm a big fan of his work and his aesthetic and I'm so happy I got to wear Rad here in Paris.
Meanwhile, I've been getting lots of compliments in Milan and Paris because of these ultra chic yet ultra cheap $5 Marc by Marc Jacobs rings (first two rings on the left) I bought in New York. Five dolla, five dolla!
