F1 has to try hard these days to make races more exciting and the cars louder, faster and more powerful. Well, the race in Monaco is definitely the jewel in the crown of the Grands Prix worldwide. The winner of the last three Monaco Grands Prix, Nico Rosberg says:

It`s the most legendary race in the calendar, and it`s the most exciting track to drive on and the most challenging track.

1929 the first Grand Prix took place in Monaco and today its much the same circuit. As the track was not intended for todays modern race cars. This is the only place in the world where the track dictates the style of racing and not Formula One´s technical or sporting rules.

Monaco may be the slowest race of the season but because its so close to the viewers it appears to be very fast and definitely the most exciting race of the year. Some drivers say that new technology and less engine power makes the Formula One cars to easy to drive but nonetheless Monaco remains a challenge to all the drivers because its not an easy track to overtake. Todays safety requirements make it impossible to build a track that compares to Monaco anywhere else. This is why some circuits are struggling to but Monaco is virtually immune from extinction. Changes in F1 regulations for 2017 won´t really affect the Monaco race. Monaco has never been a track that favors the highest horsepower cars with their often less drivable engines.

There is no other race where the fans are in such close proximity to the drivers and the racing as they are in Monaco. The vehicle performance director at the Williams team Rob Smedley said:

I think that we have to seriously think about not changing anything.

Monaco is all about show – off the track and on. Here some pictures of what went on last weekend:

MENS FASHION WEEK PARIS

 

E-Tautz-SpringSummer-2015-Collection-London-Collections-Men-DerriusPierreCom-6This weekend all the high end fashion houses present their men´s spring-summer collection 2015 in Paris. The warm weather and the fact that some of the big brand abstained from providing proper air-condition literally resulted in the melt down of many celebrities and fashionistos. Bill Gates retro trend is coming. Men at Fashion week in Paris and spotted among the laid back California dudes in bright stripes and bootcut jeans were a couple of Bill Gates dopplegangers from the same ’70s-era. The retro nerd normcore parts of the style not only picked up on the computer programmer turned billionaire’s stereotypical science teacher eyewear, but also his heretofore unknown ability to mix patterned shirts with colorful sweaters.

However, it is a packed schedule if you want to attend all the shows this week!

FREAK SHOW – WHAT TO WEAR @ FASHION WEEK

I personally have been to lots of fashion shows in Paris and London in the past couple of years and I have to say I am getting a bit tiered of all the pretentious fashion people pulling out their most ridiculous outfit to increase their chance of being noticed. But at the same time I totally understand. Actually I do the same. So here is my tip on what to wear during the fashion week.

If you are a bit shy but you always wanted to try a certain look then FW is your chance to try it out because the worst what can happen to you is that you are being judged as “one from the fashion show people currently in town”. So go crazy, colors, cuts, unusual combinations, crazy accessories or, all together! Wear what you always wanted to wear, be free.

The second option is to tone it down to the minimal. If you want to look like one from the industry all you have to do is, keep it simple and wear only black. Simple cuts, only one color, nude or no make up only sunglasses are allowed.

MEN´S STYLE GUIDE 2015

Now, lets take a closer look at what are the mens fashion trends for 2015. Here are the essentials:

  • High rise pants
  • Military style (uniform style, not camouflage!)
  • Shorts
  • Double breasted suits
  • Onesis
  • Leather, leather, leather

It will be retro for sure so pull up your pants and tuck your shirt in.

You can´t go wrong with military style. Military boots and uniform style jackets are a must-have for next year!

Also the classic shorts are back and don´t feel afraid to wear your suit with shorts.

Make sure you have a double breasted suit in your wardrobe if you want to be part if the fashion elite 2015.

Don´t be afraid to combine a leather shirt with jeans shorts, or a leather blazer to boost your party outfit. For the more courages among you I recommend to combine the onesi with the leather trend.

Always keep in mind, whatever outfit you chose, make sure you feel comfortable with it! Fashion is supposed to make you feel great, not intimidate you.

Its the first time that a fashion show will be presented at the Palais de Monaco since 1297 where the Palace was built.

The show will be taking place under the patronage and in the presence of the royal fashion plate HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco:

“I am particularly pleased to welcome to Monaco, Place du Palais, the Louis Vuitton cruise runway show and discover the creations of Nicolas Ghesquière”.

Exotic locations for luxury fashion shows are important for big labels because it allows them to make their luxury clients around the globe feel special and appreciated by their favorite high end fashion brands.

Michael Burke, the president of Louis Vuitton:

“This first cruise collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton shows the historical relationship between our house and the Principality of Monaco.”

In case you haven´t received one of the exclusive invitations (even for us it has been very very hard to get one!!!) you can watch the Louis Vuitton cruise fashion show  broadcast live on May 17 at 19h here.

MORE THAN JUST A ROYAL COLOR

During the works for the new movie “Grace of Monaco” with Nicole Kidman I noticed that every time I saw her shooting she was dressed in pastel colors. This caught my attention and I noticed very quickly that also the real Royals love to wear these light colors we used to see mostly on the Queen. grace-of-monaco-nicole-kidman-600x400-1

 

This season you should speak to your sweet side with pretty pastels in mint green, lavender and blush pink. Princess Charlene and Duchess Kate are clearly trendsetter, showing us what color are in style this summer.

I already fell in love with these light colors because they are trendy yet elegant and classy. You can wear it to every occasion: work, nightout or just for a relaxed beach day in Saint Tropez 😉
