MY OBSESSION FOR SPORTY T-SHIRTS

So for this post, I have concocted some 100% Olivia’s style looks. The original idea? To reveal my addiction for sporty T-shirts and sweatshirts. I do owe a certain amount of them — I have the bad habit to hang around in vintage shops while travelling, and I can’t help myself buying an old crapy basketball sweatshirt or a football tee… So here are some pieces out from my wardrobe, but OF COURSE I NEVER wear them with a pair of jeans or some sneakers (I even don’t possess a single pair of sneakers, I know, it’s insane, but I will talk about it in another post!). So, some sporty T-shirts, YES, but only with a jacquard shiny skirt, or printed trousers for a color block effect, or with a chic black sequin skirt! And don’t forget the ‘Lady’ accessories, the old Constance burgundy bag, the vintage cape and the Maison Michel hat. The rule is to always twist your outfit. A laid-back clothe needs some sophistication, and has to be matched with a very chic one! Don’t argue, that’s it! Photos by Regis Colin Berthelier.

ELISA NALIN MET GRIPOIX

Take on one hand, a stylist, a street style queen known for her flashy outfits, and on the other hand, a 150 years-old french Maison, specialist in pate de verre (poured glass) jewelry, and what do you get at the end? An amazing collection, totally acidulous, that all girls gonna yearn for in a few months, when it will be on sale! This collection caught my eye during the fashion week. Elisa has exquisite taste and I really wanted to see what she had conjured for this collab… Well, I’ve been served, geometric plastrons, tribal and indian necklaces, lovely rings to pile up on your fingers… So I wanted to take pictures of the jewels on her, at her house, and wearing her own clothes! I knew Elisa had a nice house near Belleville (a previous photo shoot already led me there) and that her garden would be blossoming. The whole thing was even better that I expected! A radiant girl, with sparkling jewels under some mauve wisteria… so photogenic!

WHEN CHARLOTTE MEETS SOLANGE

I was more than curious when I’ve learnt about the collaboration between Charlotte Olympia (shoe designer) and Solange Azagury-Partridge (jewelry designer). Needless to say that they are both two designers that I love. Two strong characters, two very clear universes, two wild creativities, and two super stylish Londoners. I always find very interesting these collaborations, the confrontation of two distinct worlds and in this case, it’s just matching so well! I could buy these shoes just to put them on my living room bookshelf!!!

THE LIP MANIA

Few weeks ago, I created a lip board on Pinterest — Oh Pinterest, that infinite visual inspiring space where I can lost myself for ages, but that’s another story — so I created a lip board, featuring red lips, pink lips, golden lips, lip sofas, lip clutches, a lip print’s chaos! These lips that have inspired so many designers and artists… I remember very well a photo by Peter Knapp (1971) showing a woman putting some lipstick and looking at herself in a small mirror, she was wearing a Yves Saint Laurent dress with some red lip prints. That dress became such a thing that Hedi Slimane has taken exactly the same drawing in his SS 2014 collection for Saint Laurent. And guess who had fallen for this print and bought the shirt version??? As a result, I felt like searching everywhere in my wardrobe and picking-up every item with lips. I realized that I owned many lip pieces! So here is my little arsenal …

On the pictures, I’m wearing a white sweatshirt by Stella McCartney, a skirt by Prada, a shirt and some kitten heel shoes by Saint Laurent, a T-shirt by Markus Lupfer, a clutch by Sylvia Toledano, a brooch by Paule Ka, a ring by Solange Azagury-Partridge…
