New York Fashion Week SS 2013....Violaine

Velour magazine's Violaine Bernard, before Theyskens' Theory, NYC, September 2012.

The chicest way to carry your heels! And note Violaine's sweet little ballet flats? Perfect for running around the city/between shows :)

Recreate Violaine's look (kind of):


  1. lovely!


  2. Look at that shoes on her sholder ! that's so adorable !!

  3. Love those shorts for Summer!

    Vestiaire Collective

  4. @monkeyshines - correct!

    @cactus - she is adorable isn't she! Only a French girl could carry this off so easily!

    @Darcy - they are so sweet aren't they...

  5. Something tells me Violaine is French?
    Just the way she carries everything off together just makes her appear to be the epitome of a Frenchwoman: classy, sophisticated, and slightly unpredictable. (For the record, that idea is somewhat based on my very slight knowledge of French style, most of which was garnered from Ines de la Fressange's novel Parisian Chic.)

    Even seemingly caught at a rather inopportune moment, Violaine manages to look quite put together. Her pixie cut is so adorable (it makes me wish I could pull off that do!) and her earrings look so fancy. Heels slung over the shoulder and wearing only the barest of bare ballet flats, Violaine manages to still look important and gussied up. The oversized striped sweater paired with the lace shorts is rather unexpected but works quite while, especially with those lovely Louboutins Violaine is so nonchalantly carrying. I think the unworn pair of shoes adds just the quirk that this outfit needs and that Violain carries off with aplomb. That lovely smile helps, I'm sure! :)
