For what is worth, I am really taking my detox month very seriously. If you all read the last outfit post, you all know that during every pre fashion season I adopt a more impartial approach to the my moldboards and just go with a neutral based color range. From ash gray to baby powder white, I am been going back and forth with this super common colors but yet, so often neglected by the most of us. Sure, Pantone has announced that the color of the year is ultraviolet and also sure, we all know that Gen-Z Yellow will pop out in every corner of the streets, while having magnetic red playing a huge role alongside our beloved millennial-pink . It will be a season of rainbow waves, so I can not emphasize enough the importance of having what I also love do call a “Gap month”
I took a day for myself – Remember the time I said I was in a SOS need to find the time for some ME time? – and I dedicated it entirely to check some street stores that I love here in Madrid. For those that have already visited Madrid, you know that we face a real struggle when it comes to stick with the plan for that store – meaning, BUDGET.
But well, if I was about to indulge myself with some pretty good moments, I needed to be at my best possible self. Having that said, I decide to take inspiration from a show that knock me out during last SS18 Paris Fashion Week in September. Called “We Should All Be Feminists”, Maria Grazia Chiuri decided to not capture a trend, but instead capture the values that she believed that were (and still are) forgotten. The collection was pointed out to be a beautiful bridge between her teenage years in the Seventies and the current socio-political mood. Niki de Saint Phalle, the mindful French feminist sculptress and close to Marc Bohan (former Dior creative director) was the highest inspiration of all, contributing to a very Parisienne look, Breton Stripes, Dior-like-Berets and a true reinforcement of the chic mood.
From my mini denim skirt, breton striped t-shirt to my Musée du Louvre – kind – of – artist beret, I certainly felt part of the Chiuri’s show and vision.
