My First Auto Show in Brussels, Belgium

Invited for the first time at a car show, I am very excited to discover the innovations of the 93rd Salon Auto / Moto / Van which is held in Brussels until 25 January. First time for me! 

I like cars, but I’m far from an expert. Let’s say I am more interested in aesthetics, design, comfort and ease to drive (I like to shift gears manually) than engine power as such.

Only if I find a car beautiful or interesting, I’d discover more, like this superb Jaguar on the picture above. Then I will be curious about the fuel consumption, environmental impact and performance / price ratio.

Sexy 4X4

I’ve always had a big crush on the British brands that greatly mix classy timeless design and technical performance. And when I think of a 4×4, the first name that comes to mind is Range Rover!

Photos 2 & 3 : the Range Rover Evoque ”British Edition”. The Range Rover Evoque perfectly reflects the spirit of the moment. Besides, it received 161 international awards since its launch in 2011.

The other great 4X4 brand that comes to my mind is Jeep. And the new Jeep Renagade in canary yellow version is awesome (photo 4)! Having not drived any of these cars, I will not talk about driving.

MINI City trips

Wow the Mini! WHO doesn’t like the Mini? I’ve already been a big fan of the old Mini and remains a big fan of the new MINI! It’s a very stylish car. And with the new versions, the ultimate chic little car has a powerful engine too!!

Chic UFO

I didn’t know at all the Korean brand SsangYong (now Mahindra & Mahindra since 2011). Regarding the design, what a nice surprise with this XIV-Air concept car that looks like a manga, very cubic. The rear lights seem to be a half-open mouth. Funny!

Vintage baby!

I do love old cars! They are so classy! On the photo above, the iconic Citroën DS! Symbol of French movies of the sixties-seventies, with Alain Delon, Jean-Pierre Melville, Fantomas … 

Among my favorites, there are the old Mercedes coupes and the Volvo on the photo below.

I am neither Rihanna nor a Hollywood star, but I’m fond of this gorgeous Alpha Romeo with the sweet name of Mito (above photo)! LOL! 

As for the new BMW 6 Series (photo below), I have to admit, this car in white is WOW! Although I much more prefer the Z8 Roadster of James (Bond)… and the last Z4!

As a good globetrotter, I had the opportunity to drive a Smart car on winding narrow roads of a small island years ago. Super convenient! I was able to put my body board, dive bag and an extra friend !!!!

A curvaceous design for the new Smart Forfour for four persons, with an interior reminiscent of the Courrèges 60s models!

Another small car I find really charming, the Opel Adam to customize according to his desires (photo below). Modern design, very fresh and young! Like the Toyota Aygo.

To be very honest, I like more the composition of my photos on this Mazda CX-5 than the car itself. It’s certainly a great 4X4, with headlights reminding me the profile of a shark …

Brussels: Spring-Sum 2015 Trends @ The Press Days

Need a Fashion Fix?

Here is a small selection of my last visit to the press days, where as always it is a pleasure to meet with the press office teams, discovering the new collections. And guess what? The spring-summer 2015 will definitely be colorful or won’t be!

Let’s start with the beautiful yellow tuxedo jacket and trousers of Zadig & Voltaire (picture above)! Their catalog for next season is great (on last picture, the cover).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, the brand’s rock spirit associated with a breath of fresh air! Kudos for the shawl! No. 1, beautiful Wouters & Hendrix big silver necklaces to match with very thin golden chains, or/and rings and bracelets.

No. 4: the talented nail artist, Elfi De Bruyn, applied Pronails polish on my nails at the Swatch opening store. My first time with sparkles on nails, lol! The bracelet is from the French brand Luz.

At Longchamp, I keep the rock spirit 

with the stunning Pliage Héritage Luxe (picture below). Yes, elected by my humble me-myself-and-I (lol): “Object of Desire” for next season! Another favorite: the Madballs Pliage by Jeremy Scott for Longchamp this winter 2014.

If you like the Pliage, over 30 million bags sold worldwide, I recommend you the little book “Le Pliage by Longchamp” of Laure Verchère (Assouline).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, bicolor sandals/espadrilles and handbag, Longchamp. No. 1, at the Swatch event, I discovered this new natural drink (blackcurrant juice I guess?) and the latest Swatch collection.

Don’t worry, I will complete with boards on my Pinterest this small preview of spring-summer 2015 upcoming trendsI didn’t have time to go to all press offices where I was invited (sorry!), because the same day in the morning, I had a recruitment test.

The Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Lisbon: More Than Fashion

Lisbon-Vogue Fashion's Night Out-Embaixada-Shops-Photo Mademoiselle Le K-copyright 2014

My First Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Lisbon!

Where were you last night? It started wrong for me. The day before the event, we were 4 highly motivated! Then yesterday, everyone canceled. Urban temper! Never mind, I decided to go with my faithful companion, my Canon and a little newcomer, my new phone ; )

Already three years ago, I attended the Paris Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, Avenue Montaigne, more formal and … Much less relaxed than the Lisbon one which was very festive and friendly! It’s funny because it rained all day long (today too!), but the night was pretty hot!

From Principe Real To Barrio Alto: Everything Is More Beautiful At Night!

First stop in a great neighborhood, Principe Real full of people last night! Pictures 1 and 4: Embaixiada and picture 2: the coffee, bar and restaurant in Embaixiada, Le Jardin which overlooks a bohemian garden. Picture 3: Big up to the Carolina at 21 PR Concept Store, the coolest girl that night!

Picture 5 (below): nice projection on the facade of the CS Vintage Lisboa Hotel. Picture 6: the traffic! Picture 7: live music in Bairro Alto, apparently the audience enjoyed it. The music was outdated and the MC pretty bad (80s hits such as “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life”). Picture 8: the famous tram! And picture 9: the beautiful Museu de São Roque where I spent a long time.

The Great Surprise of The Evening: A Visit To The Museu de São Roque

When I told you that here the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is more than just a fashion event, thankfully otherwise I couldn’t stay for long! I took the opportunity to discover this rich religious art of the museum and the magnificent church, Igreja de São Roque Museum. 

I enjoyed a private tour of the museum with the curators and guides. Picture 11 (below): the Igreja de São Roque and picture 12: one of the chapels of the church dating from the eighteenth century. Picture 10: the lovely courtyard with a soothing atmosphere, where a DJ played good eletro music.

In Chiado: Too Many People!

Unable to move in this dense crowd (picture 13)! And I couldn’t stand people to walk on my new Skechers Go Walk! Honestly I’m not a big fan of the look of these shoes (and I can’t understand why they are the big trend of this fall/winter)! But I love their incredible comfort: the soleplate takes the shape of the foot!  A bless for this kind of night out (review in a future post)!

Bravely I went down to Santini, but looking at the line, I quickly forgot to have an ice cream! A nightmare to walk back to Bairro Alto, some great live Cuban music (picture 14) … How can people go shopping in these conditions?
