Fresh Factor

Summer is definitely here, and for this season there’s nothing more pleasing to the eyes than soft cool colors that soothes and calms the senses. So when we recently went for a yacht cruise, I opted for pastels that would stand out, look colorfully attractive but not too flashy. My candy colored striped top in different hues of pink, blue, and green from a bazaar gave a little bit of playful nautical vibe perfect for sailing. I toned it down by wearing a very light mint green blazer from Penshoppe. Aqua blue shorts from Markus, a white fedora, watch from Tomato time, Police aviator shades, belt and bracelets from SM Accessories white sneakers and bag all from Bench completed my easy breezy dapper look.

UNIQLO: Pharell Williams, SPRZ NY, and Ines De La Fressange collection 2014

Recently I had another dose of my so called shopaholic syndrome after attending a private shopping affair as UNIQLO launched three new collections for Spring/Summer 2014 featuring collaborations with Pharell Williams, SPRZNY, and Ines De La Fressange.


Uniqlo’s UT T-Shirts now called New Model T which was revamped under the creative eye of its current creative fashion director and of course legendary street style icon NIGO ( Bape) would definitely be a sure hit. 18 new collabs for this includes ” I am other” creative collective by Grammy award winning music producer/musician Pharell Williams, which is perhaps this seasons coolest collection!

” Surprise New York” is what simply SPRZ NY means for Uniqlo’s limited edition apparel and accessories which  features a collaboration with MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). This art and fashion collection features works from the museum’s most iconic artists – Andy Warhol,  Keith Haring, Jack Pierson, Lawrence Weiner, Jaskcon Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ryan McGinness, and Sarah Morris.



The SPRZ NY collection, and a double iconic black tee that I bought, why? It’s an Andy Warhol print of Marilyn Monroe, two legendary icons in one tee!. 🙂

From the hip American street styles to French easy-to-wear apparel, Uniqlo has it all. Yes, with its latest collaboration with french aristocrat, fashion model, designer, perfumer and style icon Ines De La Fressange. In a video interview with Ines for Uniqlo she declared A marriage of two cultures is beautiful, and this collaboration is a beautiful marriage”.Definitely the collection is beautiful, and tres chic embodied by a true and quintessential French style icon. From the silhouettes, color choices and little details like the red buttons representing the “Legion d’Honneur” given to Ines, every item is Le Parisienne chic, chic, chic!
