I am going to share with you guys, one of my favorite place in Paris, Serge Gainsbourg’s house.
Serge Gainsbourg was an icon, one of France’s most talented and famous singer/songwriter, also known for being the lover of Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot.
The facade of his house is a vibrant street art homage and graffiti hot spot that constantly changes. I love to come there because this place has a particular poetic soul and atmosphere that can’t left you indifferent.
This look was inspired by the enigmatic Serge Gainsbourg. I was wearing a black and white outfit with ripped jeans and Zizi Richelieu’s shoes by Repetto, the signature item of Gainsbourg’s style. He was always wearing them and said they were a must-have: “Repetto a perpet’ !” (“Repetto Forever!”). Indeed, these dancers shoes were the only shoes he could possibly wear.
What I like the most about these shoes is that you can wear them without socks in summer and winter, besides they are extremely comfortable.
If you are in Paris, pay a little visit to this atypical place located 5 Rue de Verneuil.
I was wearing:
Zara Jeans & Jacket
Vanessa Bruno Black Top
Repetto Zizi in white
And here it goes… ! First video on PTV Paris YouTube channel shot by Julian Zhang. I had the most magical time in Paris working on this very special project where you will discover many things. 🙂
Yesterday was such a big, busy, well spent day. Currently working on a new video coming soon, stay tuned! Here are some photos from Pont Alexandre III, Le Louvre to les Tuileries and many of my favorite places in Paris.
I still can’t believe how awkward the weather was in Paris yesterday. Yet, the sun was shining and I was so happy to be there with my friends and it made our day even more fun with many adventures. My favorite thing to do in Paris is to walk and discover secret locations, I can seriously spend the whole day doing this! I can’t describe how much I like my city. To me, one of its best parts is looking for inspiration from what local people are wearing and how they give this elegant and fascinating aspect to their looks. I really wanted this «Parisian energy» to be transmitted into my outfit.
Here I just combined simple classic pieces with original items to make it more singular.
I like the idea of mixing classic pieces with modern items. A nice pair of black jean, goes with everything for example, it’s a basic don’t you think?
I wanted to create a stylish yet simple look that can be wearable for any occasion, at school, work, or even for a date. I like black combined with this neutral shade, chestnut color, to brighten up the entire outfit. What I appreciate about this look is its simplicity yet fashionable vibe. I was also wearing Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots, that have been my recent favorite. The fit, cut and color of these boots are perfect for any seasons. I literally walked all the day in them and they were so comfortable. What I love about them is their refined classic design compared to other over the knee boots which might be more vulgar and tasteless. The right pair of shows never fails to make you feel the best version of you, whether you want to play it casual or dress them up a little bit and that’s why I like these boots so much, they are so convenient and easy to wear!
This is how I would show a casual and urbane clothing in my everyday life. What about you? How do you reveal your inner Parisian?
I was wearing:
The Kooples Jacket
Top Shop Jeans

If we should describe The Parisienne style it would definitely be “less is more”.
Indeed, the essence of Parisian women’s look is their simplicity. The Parisienne always looks effortlessly feminine and chic, so as to give the impression that she woke up like this (and we can hate her for that) yet it doesn’t mean that the look has not been studied and thought through. Get the basic elements, and no need for much more superfluous artifice here!
French people have the reputation for wearing a lot of black (which is probably true) but it’s not because we are not happy, at the contrary! Black is representing the color of elegance and sophistication, of endless nights in the City of Lights…
To make this all black style more special, I paired it with a long pearl necklace and pearl ring, big red earrings that really pops and a navy blue hat. This look was inspired by my personal vision of the Modern Parisienne.
I was wearing:
Zara Hat & Skirt
Les Petites Shirt
Louboutin Simple Pump Vernis 100mm
Chanel Boy Bag

Here we are! I finally decide to create my own first independent blog driven by needs of communication and personalization. After years spent on Instagram and other different social networks I felt like I had to move on and create a new space. This blog is going to be about things that characterize my parisian life: fashion, photography, travel, health and lifestyle. I want to create a meaningful and interesting content, and hope that this step forward will involve you even more!
