“I’m wearing a Zara coat and blazer, a white vintage cachemire turtleneck, JW Anderson pants and &otherstories loafers and A.P.C bag. I would say that I have a lot of fascination with how women dressed in the early 90’s (i.e. the Lady Diana high wasted jean/white shirt/blazer look). It’s so elegant and simple. I feel like everything I wear today is about being simple but more importantly, clothes I feel beautiful in.

The most important quality I look for in my outfit is feeling comfortable in it, specially when you know you have to run all around Paris, but always with style! Also, I like wearing things that aren’t too complicated, so that it doesn’t look like I’ve spent three hours planning it, I don’t like overthinking an outfit.

High wasted pants or jeans are my must wear everyday! I’d say a turtleneck (usually black, white or grey) in wintertime and a white t-shirt or shirt in the summer. A nicely adjusted blazer or/and a long wool coat in winter with a pair of loafers or small heeled boots and voila!!”
