Mallzee
Saturday, 18 October 2014

Shopping has always been my instant treatment for a bad day, good day - or everyday if my bank allows it. But these days I'm found curled up in ball in my room, telling myself I'd be going to sleep any time now at 2am, while browsing online for shopping goodies. These days I'm so busy to go into shops looking for a particular style of clothing, and I get annoyed going home empty-handed. Especially when high street stores are massive and you can hardly find where anything is, if only for a simple search engine and hashtag-search concept store, right? Using the Mallzee app has been such an easy task of saving all my favourite brands and pieces, and showing recommendations based on my style choices makes it easier to find what I like. Bless the system of filters.


I think I've learnt from my gamer sister who never leaves the house, literally, who deals with the world technologically, and that includes her shopping. It's quick buying and browsing with Mallzee, and I admit that I spend hours, but that's purely because I like to. Perhaps, it's my way of procrastinating… as I am now, writing this very post. I think the funniest thing about it is the tinder-style swipe of model faces, except this time we're judging clothes. Selecting what I like filters looks I'm likely to go for, now if only that worked on Tinder too.

Kenzo

 [ Kenzo jumper, All Saints striped tee, AG jeans and tote, Nike trainers ]

During my brief trip to Paris, I was offered a VIP shopping experience at La Vallée Village (the French Bicester Village). I bought a navy ba&sh cashmere vest and this Kenzo jumper. The other day I unravelled my bag and asked Dave his opinion on it (because his opinions are honest and he has the perception of a six year old). He laughs at me and says I look like the sheep back home in Yorkshire. I think I will take that as a compliment.

Louis Vuitton Printemps Été SS15



 Louis Vuitton Printemps Été SS15

It was a hectic morning as our Louis Vuitton concierge had picked up the wrong Yeangs from our hotel (what are the chances, right?). But all was well when our celeb-driver returns - Slim, (who tells us how Marc Jacobs never sleeps before a show and that André Talley Leon is such a great drinking friend), speeds past the Champs-Élysées while swearing at slow French cyclists. With the pressure of the show starting at 10am sharp, we managed to grab our seats before the show begins not a moment later.

Nicolas Ghesquière sets out for round two this season for Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week and reminds us exactly what ready-to-wear is all about. Elegant textured dresses combatted with leather striped jackets, velvet chameleon-like carpet-print ensemble and sequinned tops moved across the runway, and not to mention the amazing must-have terracotta and cornflower blue velvet trousers that remind me of the bum-hugging seventies. Hair was let down in natural waves that depict the perfect French look. The perfect finish with my Danish model crush, Freja Beha Erichsen, closing the show in the simplest black ensemble.

The show ends with Nicolas running backstage with an achieving smile on his face and the bumble of chatter arising, complimenting the collection to their next door blogger best-friend. PRs rush towards the back as I make my way past model Liu Wen on my way out, sharing eye contact with Anna Wintour and Selena Gomez. That day had such an odd feeling of recognising all your old favourite Australians - like walking out with Gary Pepper girl, Nicole Warne; seeing Shine by Three writer Margaret Zhang in Marais, and Favela Punk in a showroom. It really wasn't your ordinary day, but really a typical fashion week.
