New York City

I'm wearing: White Basic T-Shirt (ZARA), Kaki rolled up Pants (Cheap Monday), Shoes (Dr Martens), Watch (Kenneth Cole New York)

And I am back!!! After all that time I am finally back on the blog, with a lot to tell you. During the last past months I had to face my exams on which I totally succeeded!! And, then I moved to New York for a month, which is why I didn't have time to post on the blog. I tried to enjoy the city and its energy as much as I was able to, and I decided to share it with you on instagram instead of posting on the blog. But, now that I am back, I can post all of the photos I took during my trip to the US (from NY to Philly and DC) because there are a lot!!!
So, this outfit is literally NY. It is light and perfect to wear in hot weather in a city like NY, where you've to pass from the AC to the 85°F sun all day long. I chose to wear those kaki pants from Cheap Monday simply because I liked them and that I believe this color is on its way to becoming really up to date this year( if it's not already the case). The white t-shirt is a basic; by rolling the sleeves it makes it just fitting with everything you want. My shoe choice; I bought those shoes in London and I wanted to wear them in NY to feel a bit different from all the New Yorkers, even though if I started to feel a bit like a New Yorker in my heart after all the time I spent there. You would have noticed that an American person would have chosen to wear sneakers instead of leather shoes, and it is definitely the truth during the summer. The watch is from Century 21(the brand is Kenneth Cole NY), this place in the US where you can get anything you want for 70% off; I got it for 60 bucks instead of $150 (which is not that bad), and it fits with my shoes. And the style wouldn't be finally complete without the $5 sunglasses that I bought on 6av.

Column

I'm wearing: Printed Shirt (H&M), Blue Basic Pants (ZARA), Shoes (Ben Sherman), Belt (Tommy Hilfiger)

Rainy, rainy... That's how yesterday was. When suddenly it stopped raining I got the opportunity to go out to take photos. After a month, I am back with this new look. Near the Opera Garnier there is a garden. And in this garden there is an access to a little tiny place full of columns of an original design. This is where we stopped to shoot. I was wearing my Ben Sherman shoes with my new printed H&M shirt I found in the Champs Elysées store. And, in between, were about a few other shirts that seemed really nice. Looking for clothes in stores is something I love and enjoy thinking about, but not something I get to do as frequently as I'd like. There's nothing like finding "a real jewel" in the shelves of a store. Don't you think? 
The pants are from ZARA (I know, I love Zara), I got these new basic pants a week ago because I tore down the ones I already had during the holiday. And to celebrate my admission to film school for the coming year I bought these. I was looking for a more complicated look than usual, but I came across this outfit and couldn't resist wearing it for the photos. This post was just recapping and showing all my new acquisitions.

Le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est qu'hier il a plu ! Je pensais ne même pas pouvoir sortir de la journée tellement la pluie était forte. Puis, dans l'après midi ça s'est calmé et  j'en ai profité pour filé direction le centre de Paris avec mon appareil photo à la main rejoindre une amie. C'est près de l'Opéra Garnier dans les Jardin du palais royal que nous avons trouvé une petite cour remplie de colonnes d'un design original. Cet endroit c'est donc présenté comme parfait pour mon nouveau look. Je porte une chemise imprimée trouvé chez H&M sur les Champs Elysées, je préfère aller dans celui là en général car il est plus grand et j'ai donc plus de chance d'y trouver ce que je veux. 
Le pantalon vient de chez ZARA (je sais, je reste fidèle à Zara), j'ai eu ce nouveau basic il y a environ une semaine parce que j'ai déchiré celui que j'avais déjà pendant les vacances. Et, pour fêter mon admission dans mon école de réalisation audiovisuelle pour l'année prochaine j'ai eu ce nouveau pantalon. Au début je voulais faire un look dans un style un peu différent de d'habitude, mais j'ai essayé ces habits ensemble et je n'ai pas pu résister au fait de les porter pour les photos. De plus ma tenue fait le tour de mes nouvelles acquisitions vestimentaires.

Royal Gardens

I'm wearing: Leather jacket (Topman), White Shirt (ZARA), Burgundy Pants (ZARA), Shoes (ALDO Shoes), Tie (ZARA

Yesterday was a day full of surprises. First of all, I saw my dear friend from Russia, Maria, whom I hadn't  seen for a long time. After an appointment in the middle of Paris, we walked but without anywhere to go and no idea of what to do.
And, suddenly came the idea to go to the Château de Versailles as it was only 30 min train from where we were. Half an hour later we arrived to that amazing place visited each year by millions of people. We took some photos of the inside of the castle, because I thought it would look pretty great in picture.
Then we went out into the garden. The gardens are super big and so gave us a huge choice of perfect places to shoot. And that's what we did, trying to mix fashion photography with nature and luxury. I was wearing my leather jacket because that day was pretty cold (only 51°), the white shirt fits with the tie that fits itself with the jacket.

Super journée hier. J'ai pu enfin revoir Maria, mon amie Russe, ça faisait déjà quelques semaines que l'on ne s'était pas vu. Nous nous sommes donné rendez-vous à la station Strasbourg Saint-Denis sans aucune idée en tête de ce que nous allions faire. Nous avons donc marché, et nous est venu l'idée d'aller au Château de Versailles. A seulement 30 min en train, l'endroit est rêvé pour faire des photos.
Une demi-heure plus tard nous arrivons donc au Château, et allons directement à l'intérieur pour faire quelques photos de la décoration qui est splendide.
Ensuite, nous avons pris un peu de temps pour nous promener dans le Parc, étendu gigantesque, on a bien sûr eu le choix de l'endroit où faire toutes nos photos. Le but était donc de mêler mode et "nature" dans la mesure ou le parc offrait de très belles palettes de couleurs qui faisaient ressortir ma tenue. Je porte ma veste en cuir Topman, assortie avec ma cravate et une simple chemise blanche.

Les Parisiens


Photography by Rosa from www.rosapelsblog.com

I'm wearing: Burgundy Blazer (H&M), Polo With Prints On The Collar ( ZARA - Limited Edition), Printed Pants (ZARA - Limited Edition), Socks (ZARA), Big Sole Shoes (Dr Martens UK)

Last week I've been meeting Rosa, she is a French fashion blogger from Paris living in Munich, Germany, for a few months now. We talked for a long while and then when I learnt that she planned to come back to Paris for a couple of days we decided to meet. Is there anything better than when a fashion blogger meets an other fashion blogger? We felt like we'd already meet before and it was terrific ! We had a good time together. We even took some photos, those are below. Her style is very particular; I am sure that many girls would like it. That's why I invite you to show her blog to your girlfriend if you've one or simply to friends. Chic, classic... Parisian.
For the outfit I am wearing a new Zara ensemble composed of pants and a  polo with amazing prints. Those are limited editions; if you want to get them you've got to go as fast as you can to the nearest Zara, because I am pretty sure that they will soon be out of stock.



She is wearing: Black Jacket (Sheinside), Black Pants (H&M), White Heels (Mango - Old Collection), Quilted Bag (Yesstyle)

Floral Finishings



Photography by Marie Broyer from marieb_photography.

I'm wearing: Blazer (Forever21), White Shirt (ZARA), Pants (ZARA), Shoes (DrMartens), Floral Tie (Primark), Belt (Tommy Hilfigher), Volumizing Powder Texture (Indola)

It's a very transitional outfit perfect for the warmer weather we have in Paris now. Comfortable, classy, dapper, and for sure, fashionable. White shirts are common and simple. That's why it is better to try enhancing it by wearing a floral tie. The floral tie is up to date this year, for work or hanging out. The main idea was really to find a way to stand out from the cliché - that it is not easy to find how to wear a floral tie. I assure you that if you find the right outfit it will look much better than another tie. 
I got that blazer at Forever 21 in NY a year ago. It looked like the color was similar to my tie and I thought that maybe it could make a great combo. And it does! I choose to wear that tie clip because the colors on it were the same as on my pocket square and as the ones on my belt. Not to mention that the belt is also fitting with my DrMartens. 

I also wanted to talk a bit about my new haircut. So, my hair is simply put on the back. My hairdresser is pretty good - based in the Place de la Bastille, Paris (that was also our shooting location). He advised me to use a volumizing powder to fix my hair on the back without any problem. I wrote the brand of that powder in the description above.

C'est un look a priori parfait pour le temps qu'il fait sur Paris depuis quelques jour - on se croirait presque en été. Confortable, classic, chic et à la mode. La chemise blanche étant un peu classique, j'ai essayé la démarquer en l'accordant avec une cravate à motif floral. Ce type de cravate est certes dur à porter - peut vite faire bling bling - met rend extrêmement bien si on trouve la tenue adéquate. 
Le blazer Forever 21 que je porte avait l'air d'avoir la même teinte que la cravate, j'ai donc pensé que ça pourrait faire un super "combo". C'est en effet le cas. La pince à cravate se marie parfaitement avec le mouchoir de poche et la ceinture qui comportent les mêmes couleurs. Sans oublier que la ceinture est elle même dans une teinte similaire aux chaussures. 

Je voulais aussi faire une petite récap sur mes cheveux. Je les mets tout simplement en arrière, ils sont coupés courts sur les côtés et derrière. Mon coiffeur est à Bastille (c'est aussi l'endroit où on a fait les photos). Il m'a conseillé de les faire tenir avec une poudre volumisante et ça marche incroyablement bien. C'est souvent le problème quand ils deviennent un peu long ils tiennent plus et on est tenté de tout couper. J'ai écrit dans la description le nom de la poudre ça ne devrait pas être dure de la trouver sur internet.

Have an awesome day - Maxime
