There’s something I like even more than taking streetstyle pictures, and that’s getting photos of things that speak directly to me. Like, all the stuff I want to wear myself, you know?

The first time I brought out my camera was for this reason. I was looking for my own style and magazines were giving me no help, so I started looking elsewhere.

Soon after I started attending the fashion weeks, I developed a fascination for the fantastic and perfect outfits,  on someone like Carine Roitfeld, or the fantastic and totally extravagant ones like Anna Dello Russo. It’s all fashion after all. There is no better opportunity to show off your love of clothes and really experiment.

When fashion editors and stylists put together outfits that just scream “fashioooooon!!!” ” Oh looooook it’s Céliiiiiiiiine’s last collection!” or “I have 867 different prints on my back!” : I just love it when it’s well done. At the same time, I like the looks like Emmanuelle Alt’s: simple, clear, sexy, and recognizable.

What gets me the most though are the looks that inspire me on a more personal level. Not necessarily the ones that say “take my photo right away or I’ll have to chaaaaangeeee!” but the subtle lines that I end up putting in my style notebook and end up remember during my next shopping trip.

A flared skirt, a pair of simple heels, a mix of textures, a striped sweater… That’ll keep me inspired for spring!
