As I told you one month ago, I had the opportunity to spend one day at the boutique Luc Duchêne along with three other Belgian bloggers, to try on and get photographed in their new spring summer collection.
I have to say that it was really fun to be able to go through all the rail of clothes in order to create looks according to our own personality and style. What is interesting is that Emma, Tiany, Axelle and me ended up with very different combination whilst browsing through the same rails… Which really, was the aim of this experience.
I created two looks. My favourite being the one below. I was wearing a white cotton smoking jacket with a green silk crepe blouse and matching sarouel. With a purple silk crepe tank top underneath.
I was very happy with this look as I loved, loved the colour! Also I really enjoyed wearing silk, which I do especially in summer and even in my designs I have always tend to favour silk fabrics. The white jacket was a new thing for me as I don’t have any, but I think I’ll be adding one to my wardrobe very soon…!
This second look which was create only to highlight those stretched yellow leather pant was very fun to wear too. You see, we had that conversation among us in the shop about those pants…
Too yellow, not to yellow..? So I put them to the test! Well they were definitely very, very yellow but I thought that with a black lace leather jacket and this polka dot top it could be nice. Ok I’m lying! Before this black and yellow combination I did tried a black, yellow AND red one which in the end made me look like an human Belgian flag, so I had to find an alternative as 21st July is still months away… (21/07 is our national day in Belgium) There you have it, sitting on a bench with Axelle, not reflecting about the cold… (well I cannot pretend it was not freezing as you can see it in the video ;-)
This project was created by the lovely Emile Duchêne in partnership with Rollin, photographer from the street style blog The Fashionalist, who took all the pictures from the day. As for the backstage video, which I really love, it was made by the talented Julien Charpentier.
Thanks everyone for this great day!
