Wow, it’s unbelievable how time flies… it has been exactly one month since the launching of Who is that Blonde! As you might have noticed I didn’t sit still these days, let’s see what I have been doing and check out the progress I made!
It all started on my birthday, during the day I had quite some stress with the launching of the website but eventually everything was arranged and I could enjoy an evening filled with family and friends, they were such a great support! Not long after my birthday it was time to start preparing for Paris Fashion Week…. So much outfits to style! I wouldn’t have made it without my stylist & PR manager Senna Kabbaj, thank you lady <3 Paris was hectic but so much fun! I met very interesting people and saw many new inspiring collections, I can’t wait till it’s time for the new Spring/Summer Season :)
After Paris I had two weeks filled with shoots and meetings with friends & family for my final goodbyes because I was about to move to Barcelona! With three suitcases and two bags I arrived to my favorite city in the world and was greeted by my most favorite person: Alex, my boyfriend! After four years of a long distance relationship it was finally time to move in together and start a new adventure, I couldn’t be happier!
And here I am sitting now, in our new adorable apartment, 15 minutes from the beach, writing about my progress to you guys. I just checked Google Analytics and I am super proud to already have gained almost 2000 unique visitors in my first month! Barcelona apparently is a great place to be for bloggers since there are fashion events every week, so I am very curious to see what the upcoming month will bring for me… subscribe to my newsletter and join my adventures!
Lots of love,
Before the show starts, the public gets to see a short film introduction in order to celebrate the 40 years’ existence of the Fashion House. “I want to make clothes that can be kept for a lifetime” she states. Her designs are known for being classic pieces: suitable for any time or season. This typical French brand tributes its SS16 collection to the beauty of the everyday woman.
The show opens with two beautiful models walking together in long, simple dresses. They are holding a cup of tea and a baguette as if they just got their breakfast. The next looks resemble a businesswoman on her way to work: black & grey blazers and pencil skirts in combination with long coats and handbags. Later on, the designs get more casual and ready for summer.
There are a couple of graphic black & white designs with the iconic horizontal stripes Agnes B became known for. Furthermore, it is visible she has a weak spot for straight lines and soft materials: comfortable yet super stylish. She uses classic fashion pieces and gives them a twist with bright colors, new cuts, interesting combinations with other clothing pieces or with adding details such as buttons or zippers. Some of her favorite pieces are trench coats, straight trousers, blouses and blazers.
To emphasize the natural beauty of the everyday woman, Agnes B choses for a natural make-up look, it’s not necessary to get all dressed up! The hairdos are also simple and straight forward yet elegant. By selecting a wide variety of models she also wants to show that everyone can be beautiful: any age, any race, any size… anyone! Agnes B sends out a great message to all of us, which is truly inspiring.
What we also like about the Agnes B show is the fact that any of the looks she creates, you can in fact completely put on and walk straight out of the door. She thinks everything trough: clothes, accessories and shoes. Furthermore, the energy is upbeat, it’s fun! It’s clear the models are feeling comfortable in their outfits and that they are having a good time (we even saw some smiles!), the music creates a good atmosphere and the looks are classic but impressing nevertheless. The quality of the material, the perfect cuts, the timeless charm… Agnes B made her 40 Years Celebration one to remember!
