Take a peek behind the scenes of another day at Paris Fashion Week SS18! First thing in the morning we headed to our new hotel in Bonne Nouvelle, which was probably the coziest area and neighborhood. The hotel was so quiet and peaceful, which is an amazing change from the extremely busy corner our other flat was on where you could hear the traffic all day. We settled in to La Bonne Nouvelle hotel, and I styled up my first outfit for the day. It was Sunday, so most the bakeries and restaurants were closed. But that didn’t stop us from tracking down the nearest Boulangerie and a cute corner to shoot on.
Down a few blocks we came upon a squealing crowd surrounding Jaden Smith, Will Smith’s son. We didn’t stick around to find out what was going on, but it was a funny moment! Continuing down the road we entered what was probably the most quaint street, still buzzing for a Sunday with bakeries and restaurants open. There we picked up two fresh baguettes and found a cobblestone alleyway to shoot a special look for Enjoué Collective.
After heading back to our hotel, I made an outfit change to what was probably the most popular look at PFW- my plaid check blazer, which I styled over a silk nightgown I wore as a dress. Sock boots were a must, being so comfy and easy to wear, and I topped it off with a camel beret I picked up last time I was in Paris. Belting the jacket made it feel more fitted and less boxy, which I preferred for this look.
We happened to be in walking distance from the Anne Sophie Madsen show, so we headed there straight away, stopping for some quick photos at Sezane and along the way. Arriving to the Tranoi venue was exciting as always. Crowds wait in lines outside, hoping to get in. The banners across the large pillars sway in the wind and lights for the runway show ignite as the sky darkens. We arrived just in time and skipped the line thanks to VIP invites, and quickly snapped some photos out front before finding our seats.
Josh found his way to the top of the Press Stand with probably 50 other photographers and videographers. The rows got filled to the brim with all the people in standing room, and made for an excitement in the air as we all waited for the show to start.
The colors of the Anne Sophie Madsen SS18 collection was a color palette of soft neutrals from whites, greys, beige, black and metallics, tickled with feather detailing and sheer blouses and dresses. It was the first year for menswear to appear during Women’s Fashion Week, so Madsen touched on it by presenting an Androgynous collection that made you see these looks in a different light. They seemed to be a futuristic spin on classic silhouettes and fabrics, that remind of Coco Chanel and the Euro Mod styles of jumpsuits and biker goggles. I enjoyed the use of the ASM logo on shoe ribbons and knitwear.
After the show I got snagged for another interview, and met up with a friend behind the brand, El Vaquero Italy before heading out to find dinner on a late Sunday night.
