Montreal In Manhattan is a series of outfit posts. I’ll be including at least one piece of Montreal Local designer in all my outfits – whether to attend #NYFW events or street style pictures for style inspiration.
I woke up like any other morning. I took the time to make my coffee, jump in the shower, read my e-mails, post on Instagram, put my make-up on, fix my hair and dress-up.
But see, it wasn’t like-any-other-morning.
The quiet sound of Brossard’s birds in trees is replaced by the urban symphony of the city that never sleeps. Instead of heading to the office, sit down and quietly start my day, I’m putting my highest heels on, jumping in a cab to go to Tiffany’s. Yes, I’m having breakfast at Tiffany’s – A dream that is finally coming true (remember? I talked about here!).
So when I started putting together my outfit, an obvious yet interesting wonder came to my mind: If Audrey Hepburn, in the role of Holly Golightly, were to go to Tiffany’s today, in 2014, what would she be wearing?
If Holly Golightly /Audrey Hepburn was fashion forward, always a step ahead on her time, modern and very “New-York”, I couldn’t help but wonder on how she would have evolved – Which lead me to think on the modern woman today’s position. She’s fun, fierce, minimalist, career-oriented, sober but tasteful, she loves to party until dawn, independent and she protects her heart. She doesn’t like to be taught what to do, she’d rather fail 10 times and learn by herself. But again, what would she be wearing?
I asked my friend, Serge Jean Laviolette (who’s a style connoisseur), and he didn’t hesitate: ” Pair of pants! Very YSL, à la Betty Catroux“. I immediately thought of Nisse. It was a perfect fit with Tiffany’s new architectural design direction (we’ll talk about it later), modernity, it’s fashion-forward, full of movements and style. I went down to their boutique on Saint-Denis, and I fell in love with so many pieces, it was very hard to choose. Until the brand’s manager pulled this outfit, saying that I should totally try it. It was exactly what I was looking for: perfectly cut, strong fabric, and light colours. Very modern breakfast at Tiffany’s.
I really do love Nisse. There is a vision beyond the design and I just appreciated every piece I tried. The fit is amazing, the quality superbe and the structure excellent. I can’t wait to show you more of this brand. Untill then, stay tuned for my next post. It’s about Tiffany’s new collection and you’ll love it!Top: Nisse Pants: Majari Trouser from Nisse Bag: Karen Millen Shoes: RW&CO
