In times of uncertainty there are two things that remain constant: I adore French love ballads with 60s drum beats (refer to Spotify playlist), and street art. Alongside my ‘nouvelle liberté’, I have a new camera, a new outfit and haircut. My obsession with culottes and Karen Walker sunglasses has also reached a whole new level I never knew existed, and the energy of the city stimulates my imagination and desire for innovation. The colours, the textures, the lines. When combined together the unique creative expression of graffiti art aligns with my minimalist style. With graphic design and vibrant contours, fashion meets art in graffiti. This incredible contrast highlights my innate creativity and passion for aesthetics. Hidden in secret lanes in Sydney, street art inspires fashion. For me, street chic is smart, edgy and individualistic which complements the idiosyncratic, colourful nature of street culture. Grab your camera and wear a striking pair of sunglasses. You’re ready to embrace street smart. If you wish, hit play on my new Spotify playlist. Enjoy.

Other than a 2006 pop culture reference, the title above has significant meaning for me. It’s spring, and this blog is the start of something new. As a musician and Francophile, this blog celebrates fashion, culture and lifestyle.

Inspired by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Frida Kahlo, Anna Karina, Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy, Jane Birkin, and Francoise Hardy, my eclectic style is diverse as my music taste (believe me). An amalgamation of vintage classics and boho meets street chic in the creative spaces of Sydney, I value la mode which is accessible, adaptable, affordable, and tailored for the everyday.

Listen to my spring playlist on Spotify for inspiration and delight.
