Total black and white

There're days when keeping it the simplest way possible is the best. I truly do love colorful outfits, but sometimes you just feel like keeping it minimal and chic without too much.
Jeans are too warm and heavy for summer. And more for Valencian summer, which is too humid and sticky to wear nothing than your most flowing and light dresses. So, when wearing trousers thin fabrics like this white cotton are a nice idea to rock your outfit on a different and comfortable way.

In addition to this, the Bimba & Lola top (which is minimal enough, but still manages to have those awesome details like the V-neck and the slight peplum) and this striped clutch I made myself which adds texture and the fun part to the outfit! Pairing a total black or white outfit is a real challenge for me: I never know how to make it interesting enough because when pairing monochromatic looks, you still have to achieve the main point. But when it's about mixing black and white, the key is layering different patterns, fabrics and textures, always following those B&W lines. And DIY your own accessories can really make the difference!

What's your affaire with B&W outfits? Or have you mastered the monochromatic look?

Before the magic of the show happens, there's a lot of previous hard work. Stress, races, fittings to check on the last minute details and make sure everything will be perfect out there at the stage. Last week I had the chance not only attending to #CHAPELLESUMMER launch party, but also being a witness hours before the show of what happened around. I wasn't actually a big part of the staff, actually: there were makeup artists who did the makeup on the models, there were professional photographers who took pictures of everything, so I just was an extra hand in case somebody needed help.

So, there we were, almost three hours before the show started, getting outfits ready, preparing that lovely board with the hashtag of the event (did it myself, can't you see? Hehe), establishing an order for the models to come out (which I must say I didn't get into, but looked like a real engineering work), filling the seat posters with the attendants... I could see with my own eyes that behind all that glamour and lights at the show, there're tons and hours of work and lots of people who put a lot of effort on getting everything prepared. Who would have said the real show is actually behind the scenes?

When everything was finally settled about two hours after, after some test shoots (looks like my shiny jeweled headband was a nice resource to practice with the focus and cameras, so I had to stay around, of course) I went upstairs where the catwalk was going to be held, and I finally prepared my blogger stuff: camera and its lens, put my not-to-run-on-a-rush high heels and helped handing around the public and guests the show programs. I'm really happy it all turned well, all the possible unexpected things which could had happened didn't happen, and that I could see first hand the whole the process of the fashion show in both perspectives: as an assistant and as a fashion blogger.

Fashion illustration: Dior Haute Couture SS16 show

I've been always fascinated by Dior and its brand image. I think the Maison is one of the most iconic, classy and example of heritage and tradition ever at modern fashion history and a model on the industry.

I wasn't very much on the John Galliano era at the brand: his designs were too lavish, too exaggerated and theatrical on a Maison which foundation I see as getting the most of a design and elegance with the less. Turning simplicity as the maximum to follow.
And then, Raf Simons came. And turned upside down the brand image, returned to its origins. Its essence. And being honest, I think his first collection at the Maison Dior were one of the things which definitely made my heart truly fall in love with fashion. In fact, I even emulated one of their iconic accessories by DIY.

So, as following this holiday's habit I'm getting used to which is illustration, and coming back to use my watercolor pencils, I decided to draw this three styles seen at last week's 2015/2016 Paris Haute Couture Week. I was so impressed seeing the whole collection that I felt like the need to depict it on my sketchbook. The techniques I used were pencil, watercolor pencil and some digital for the background.

#CHAPELLESUMMER. As some of you might know, I'm a regular contributor at Chapelle Magazine, an independent online fashion magazine 100% made in Valencia and where I have the pleasure to review fashion shows, talk about fashion and architecture or trends every three months. I'm very proud on taking part on this project, not only because their founders (Eduardo, Natalia and Beatriz) have become true fashion colleagues, but also because Chapelle Magazine is one of the most important independent fashion publications at the city right now, giving the opportunity to young and emergent designers to feature their creations and to reach more people interested on their designs.

As last week, I was invited to one of the most iconic and modern places in Valencia which is L'Umbracle, a partially covered garden turned into a terrace and summer lounge bar where I had the pleasure on covering the Barreira A+D School fashion show last week. This time I came not only as a blogger to tell you all what happened there, but also as a contributor, friend and kind of assistant on the previous backstage. I will tell you about that, about what happens behind (and before) the show on another post (because the first thing you should see is the final result, like when Cinderella attended the ball) but I can tell you there were nerves, there were plenty of mishaps and everything happened on a rush.

As it was the launch of the new Summer issue, we had the chance to see some swimwear collections of designers featured at the new number and even a dance performance by dance crew DSM5. Eve Angel Suit, Moisés Prats, Isabel Akkin, Anna Vicent, Nathnit, Montag73 and E. Jairycovich were the ones in charge to add fashion and style to the night with their collections of bikinis, swimsuits (both for men and women), beach wraps and accessories. Their designs were as fresh as ever when talking about young designers, and the night was as fun and bright as I thought it would be. Congratulations!

Chopping my hair before summer was the best idea my silly, messy brain could ever have. Although having the need of ironing and taking care of it quite regularly (but as much as a regular length haircut), it's quite comfortable and easy to wear. However, there are those days when you don't feel like wearing it loose. Or it's just as hot as hell out there that you feel the need of wearing a ponytail, bun, or whatever just to feel a little breeze on your neck and shoulders.

That's the story behind this outfit, and how I ended looking a little bit like this "typical Spanish flamenca" women with my low bun and loop earrings. But, why not? They looked just too fancy and perfect matching this floral tail dress with all its tropical motifs dancing around (here's another way to style it). Sometimes you have to take risky and last hour decisions, and that's what I did here. Soft makeup, comfortable shoes but it ended like the most colorful outfit ever.

Sometimes, the simplest and most unexpected things can flip a whole outfit, isn't it?
