With the help of social media, Stromae announced to his fans that he would be performing a little “stunt” in Montreal today at 12:30 PM at Place des Arts. I rushed to the scene this afternoon and managed to get these pretty awesome shots* of the Belgian artist. His performance of his 2 hits “Formidable” and “Papaoutai” on his new album Racine Carrée was exceptional.

Being the fashion-obsessed person that I am, I could tell that this hard-working musician puts an equal amount of effort into his style and overall image. It’s not the first time Stromae is seen in this sick geometric polo, he was also wearing it here and here. Belgian stylist Coralie Barbier is the one responsible for Stromae’s impeccable style. I’m thinking that she gets her inspiration from the likes of high-end fashion labels such as Kenzo Paris and Josh Goot. These brands really understand the importance of proportions and color combinations in their patterns. It’s modern, it’s clean, it’s eccentric and it’s exactly how I love to dress (stay tuned for my next outfit post Winking smile )! Did you get to see Stromae perform today? If you missed it I shall be posting my video of his performance on YouTube shortly! Have a fashionable weekend.

H&M Showroom in NYC

What’s new at H&M? With H&M being so fast-paced, it can be hard to keep up with what’s new and cool in stores. I was invited to the H&M showroom during New York Fashion Week to view their latest collection and share all the beautiful details with you guys. The focus is indeed on the details in this collection – tassels, fringes and croc-embossments to name a few. I’m wondering if previous H&M collaborator Lana Del Rey had something to do with the inspiration for any of this. One of my favourite items of the collection are the air-superiority blue androgynous loafers (yes, I did my color research). The laid-back feel of these items was balanced out with a seductive semi-transparent black long dress which placed as a main attraction in the showroom. It’s interesting to see H&M’s direction towards a more cohesive collections. As many of these items tie well together, this makes it easy for anyone to come up with complete and head-turning ensembles.

Le Festival Mode et Design in Montreal was a great opportunity for everyone to show off their personal style. This annual event takes place every July and is held outdoors, which can only mean one thing – lots of street fashion snaps! I took advantage of this event by shooting stylish people in the street that caught my attention. You can view the entire Fashion and Design Festival street style album on the official SA page.

I’ve compiled the following photos of all four of my outfits worn during the festival!

 

Day 1 – Sweewë Paris Graphic Print Dress

Day 1 of the Fashion an Design Festival was a breeze for me when it came to dressing for the event.  I’ve been wanting to show off this awesome graphic dress that I bought months ago from boutique Paris pas cher on Saint-Denis street.  Thanks Edmond for this super cool image we took on site in front of a lit-up wall!

Day 2 – ZARA Jacquard Pattern Top

You may recognize this one from my Best of ZARA Spring 2013 post which I published back when the Canadian online store first launched. I couldn’t help but obey my own editorial picks. This super structured Jacquard Pattern top helped me stand out from the crowd, and its colors get me excited for fall fashion! Susan is also repping ZARA in the black and white Plush T-shirt. Believe it or not, she picked this top out on her own without any influence from my blog post!

In the photo just above, I’m with amazing model (and dentist!) Vincent right before he gets ready for his runway show.
