PFW FW 22/23 Street Style Look
City of Light as always has been a wonderful last stop in the Fashion Weeks Marathon. At first, I wasn’t sure if I should go to Paris. Milan Fashion Week was intense due to the busy schedule and Russian aggression in Ukraine. I decided to go to Paris at the last moment. Like last time I went with my friend Anna and I was happy I did. Paris this time has been sunny and warm, I enjoyed a lot this beautiful city during the golden hour.
During PFW FW 22/23 most of the brands opted for physical fashion shows and presentations. The city was buzzing. Fashion Weeks attendees came from all over the world. There was a lot of wonderful street style outside of the fashion shows venue and hotels and restaurants were full. It was so nice to see Paris being like before the pandemic. Regarding the war in Ukraine, the fashion world in Paris also reacted. Ralph Toledano, President of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has made a statement. He said that organization will be donating funds to support Ukrainian Refugees via donations made to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. I could spot some influencers wearing blue and yellow, but the most tribute was paid by Balenciaga. In their fantastic fashion show, Demna Gvasalia, creative director of the brand dedicated their show to Ukraine. As a young boy, he was also a refugee from Georgia and he knows exactly how Ukrainian people are feeling right now. He started the show by reciting the poem in the Ukrainian language. Then all guests received the t-shirts in yellow and blue colour. His collection was also very much inspired by the journey that refugees have to face. For me, it was one of the most important fashion shows during this fashion week and this support was much appreciated. As you can see this PFW was special because of the difficult times that we currently are facing. On another hand side, it felt a lot like before the COVID and there was a lot of beautiful energy and positivity around it. People were happy, creative and friendly. Without further ado let’s jump into my favourite looks from PFW FW 22/23.
Monochrome Oversized Suit with a Bra
This is a trend loved by many. Blazers are always in fashion, but each season they have a different form. There are different ways to wear them, different fabrics, materials or colours.
For this look I was wearing:
Oversized suit from Zara in a hot pink colour. Paired with a baby blue coat from Mango, matching sandals and sunglasses and a beautiful Céline Handbag from DOWNTOWN UPTOWN Genève. The Nano Luggage bag in cream leather with red, yellow & blue stitch trim.
Blue Leather Trench Coat at PFW FW 22/23
It’s the first time that I decided to buy a faux leather lined trench coat with a belted waist from Missguided. I twinned with my friend Anna who was wearing the same coat in a deep green colour. I was wearing it either with a sparkling set from Sandro or with the dress from Millé Milano. With a large tote bag from Dior or Céline Nano Travel. The cherry on the top was a bucket hat from Borsalino. Beautiful denim cap with silver bijoux inspired with the Japanese culture.
High-Quality Tweed clothing is something that I love to wear a lot. Tweed dresses are such staples and they are always in style. It always creates an effortless yet elegant look. As you most likely saw in my previous articles I always choose tweed designs from Millé Milano, a Swiss-Italian brand that is becoming more and more famous. This time I wore a sleeveless Black & White dress.
Tweed and Feathers
On another day I wore again Millé Milano design. A sweater/blazer with feathers on the bottom. I was dreaming about wearing feathers during PFW so it was just a perfect look. I was wearing it with sparkling trousers from Sandro or over the white shirt combines with a mini skirt. For the 2nd look, I added Millé Milano chain belt as a necklace and I loved how nice and chunky it looked.
I decided to give handbags a bit more room and highlight them in a separate chapter.
My dear readers, please meet the bag that travels. Cèline Nano Luggage from Uptown Downtown Genève. An ideal handbag that matches all looks and especially the beautiful streets of Paris!
THALIE Paris Handbags. In Paris, together with Anna, we have discovered a wonderful handbag brand with a purpose. A sustainable brand that is inspired by the ’30s, their art, muses and lifestyle.

Dior Tote Handbag. First Introduced by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Christian Dior, the Dior Book Tote has become a staple of the Dior aesthetic.
The style is fully embroidered with a beige multicolor Mizza motif, inspired by a leopard pattern from the House archives. The design is adorned with the ‘CHRISTIAN DIOR’ signature on the front and exemplifies the House’s signature savoir-faire.
