I am happy to announce the winner of my “Coco Chanel: The Legend and The Life” giveaway: Anna from design traveller. Congratulations, Anna! The book is now yours. I will email you shortly. Everyone’s name was written down on little pieces of paper, you know how I love hand writing, they were folded and mixed up and then the winner was selected randomly, eyes closed. Thank you everyone who entered the giveaway. I wish all of you could have won a copy of the book. But there are other giveaways in store and I’m looking forward to the next one.
This editorial, one of my favourites again, starring incredible Coco Rocha puts me in the right mood for fall, as it is such a stunning display of autumn fashion richness, mixing intense and neutral colours (which otherwise dominate my wardrobe), velvet, silk and fur, watercolour and folkloric prints in what I regard as a beautiful attempt to make me see beyond my go to choices and dare me to play a little. With a neo-bohemian style, why not? I hope you had a lovely weekend and that your week is off to a marvelous start!
