Paris Fashion Week – Chanel Airport Themed Show

Karl Lagerfeld turned the Grand Palais in Paris into a Chanel Airlines terminal for the house’s show on Tuesday. I was absolutely thrilled by the attention to details- there was a departures and arrivals board that listed “flights” to Shanghai, Salzburg, and other former Chanel show destinations. And Oh, My! those airplane-shaped pins.everydayfacts Chanel SS 16

Here are a few of the outfits I loved best.

Why Monochrome Tops are the New Black

If you are (in a hurry) looking for that finishing touch to your outfit, just add a monochrome top (black or white) and Voila! instant chicness.

To quote Karl Lagerfeld: “Black and white always looks modern, whatever that word means”.

A catwalk favorite, black and white tops are the building pieces of any standout outfit, from the laced tops to sequined tees, these pieces are the most stylish way to transform your outfits. The monochrome trend has been worn on and off the red carpet by stars like Emily Blunt, Taylor Swift, Nicole Richie and many more. Each has their own take on the trend. See some examples and be inspired to create your own black and white ensemble.

Here are some more ideas from street style photos

Paper Passion – The New Book Fragrance

How crazy is this: new perfume from Wallpaper* magazine that actually makes you smell like a new book. I love the smell of new books, that’s why I prefer to read them on paper than on iPad, at least one every few months, but I don’t know what to say about smelling like a new book. Paper Passion would for sure gather around me a lot of book-lovers! 🙂

The fragrance, was created in collaboration with perfumer Gerza Schoen and Gerhard Steidl. The  packaging for the fragrance, designed to look like a book, is done by none other than Karl Lagerfeld who said “The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”
It sells at $115. A little expensive. But still the question remains: Would you buy this fragrance?
