This morning Jenny and I travelled from Luxembourg to Munich.
The reason behind our trip were the AW14/15 Press-days happening in this city. Of course we also spend some time visiting the ancient buildings and strolling through the cobble-stoned streets, but I found way more pleasure in discovering what autumn/winter has to offer. Sorry Munich, even if you’re a lovely city you just can’t compete with next-season’s top accessories.
The most impressive today was, of course, Monnier Frères. Their presentation was flawless and they definitely chose the right mixture of pieces to provide their invitees with the best impression of the upcoming trends. Let me tell you one thing : It will be colorful but dark, shiny but furry and everything but ordinary.
I especially fell for the metallic 3.1Phillip Lim Mini Pashli. Its bronze-orange tone is so classy yet edgy-glamorous and the mini size makes it easy to carry it from day to afterwork and over to night. This purse already made it to my AW wish-list folder and I’ll be keeping my eye on it the moment it hits the store.
I also had the honor to meet the founders of MonnierFrères: Guillaume and Jean Monnier. They have a very clear vision about their company and were so kind as to answer some of the questions which have been spinning in my head ever since I first discovered their online-store thanks to Chiara Ferragni. I was very impressed by their down-to-earthness and talking fashion with them and with the lovely
ladies from Pink+Purple was a memorable and fun experience.
We were guided through the whole exposition and were also introduced to the very talented jewel&bag designer Sylvia Toledano.
Don’t worry you will hear more about her and her beautiful creations in one of my upcoming articles. She’s definitely a designer to watch.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I let you enjoy the impressions of this wonderful event and you better start dreaming about all these beautiful gems which will be available from September on at Monnierfreres.com
