Exactly two weeks from now I’ll be in Paris for Paris Fashion Week. I’m more than excited about this trip. I’m ecstatic! I visit Paris on a regular basis, but this is the first time I’ll be there during PFW and THAT is something totally different. Ok, so it’s not PFW menswear collections, but it’s still PFW and EVERYone will be there, including me. 😀 I’m traveling with my best friend Renata who is a jewelry designer for Love Gems and we’re going to see some fashion shows, meet some interesting people and I have a few photoshoots booked as well. So it’s a combination of work and pleasure, which in my mind is the best way to do things. Work should be a pleasure, if not, you’re in the wrong business.
To honor my favorite store in Paris (maybe in the whole world), Colette, I’m wearing their t-shirt in these pics. The other explanation could be that we still have 27 degrees Celsius (80 F) and no signs of autumn yet here in the south of Sweden and even wearing this makes me sweat uh, more than I want to express in here. Colette has basically all I need to stay alive and if they had a hotel I’d move in there. They have an amazing collection of brands with amazing clothes, accessories, jewelry, gadgets, books, sneakers and God knows what. It’s a bit pricy, but if you’re just there for the atmosphere the cheapest you can buy is probably a Louis Vuitton guide to Paris for approx 30€. I just love that place and if there’s one store you need to visit while in Paris it’s Colette! If it’s your first time in Paris you might wanna do the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur and all that stuff as well, but don’t forget to take a break from all the touristy stuff for a while and just enjoy Paris like Parisians do!
