Marrakech with Kalmar

Had a 5am flight again, early bird! Not complaining though when destination is the beautiful Marrakech with my partner in crime NinaAs soon as we arrived, there was a car waiting for us at Marrakech Airport to bring us to Four Seasons Hotel. London isn’t cold at the moment, which is great… But nothing to compare to with the heat we felt as soon as we touched down. 

Location: Royal Mansour

Arriving at the hotel, I was welcomed with such a nice surprise from Kalmar. There was a bag with so many beautiful pieces in it, right on the bed! We chilled for a bit and had a shoot with Kalmar afterwards. 

Location: El Fenn Riad

Location: Our Villa at Four Seasons

Shoot was great! Our villa in Four Seasons  in Marrakech was just out of this world guys, you cannot believe it! So beautiful! A bit later, we gathered at the Royal Mansour for our afternoon tea, amazing place guys, really reccomend it (Sorry queen, but I just love the way Moroccans make tea and the taste of it). Time to get changed again and head ourselves to Bô Zin which is considered to be one of the restaurants in town. Dinner was just mouth-watering and the music was absolutely great! We danced the whole night. It’s gotta be one of the best restaurants I’ve been to! 

Location: El Fenn Riad

Next day, we had breakfast at 9am in the hotel and went for a private tour in Marrakech centre. Weather was boiling hot and the tour was really nice! I really liked the street markets in town. Also, we visited  Koutobia Mosque and a beautiful palace. 

Location: El Fenn Riad

After the tour, we went back to Karen Ruimy’s home for lunch, followed by AW17 collection preview. The pieces were absolutely beautiful. Then, we had the whole afternoon to enjoy at Karen’s pool afterwards. Headed back to the hotel for dinner and to get ready for the party later on! 

Woke up early next day for breakfast at Four Seasons Villa and later we relaxed with a traditional Hammam spa treatment. At around 16:00 we had our airport transfer, it was unfortunately time to come back home. 

Thanks Kalmar, Four Seasons Hotel and Marrakech for such a lovely time!

What we’ve seen so far in the cruises show

The Modernity of Antiquity

 

Chanel’s Cruise this season was at their hometown, in Paris at the Grand Palais. The scenario was all inspired by Ancient Greece and its ruins. As the title portrays, the collection mirrored the Greek-inspired set. The outfits varied between one-shouldered silhouettes, adorned headbands and gold accents which pretty much illustrated the image of a Grecian Goddess. Footwear was really based on knee-high gladiator heels that had a vast range of colours: yellow, blue, red, black and etc.

Dior Sauvage

 

The show was held in Calabasas, the tony suburb in the Valley. This season, Chiuri was closely inspired by nature. She stated that the collection includes references to Palaeolithic cave paintings, Georgia O’Keeffe and feminist shaman Vicki Noble. The cuts kind of pushed to the adult woman type but could easily be broken down into a quite modern street style. 

Louis Vuitton Resort

 

Louis Vuitton chose Shinbashi Street, in the heart of Kyoto’s medieval district, as their place to celebrate its cruise 2018 collection. The collection was quite inspired by Japanese references. You could see such references mainly in the dresses and Kabuki-eyed bags. We could argue that Ghesquière’s collection was a love letter to Japan’s culture in general. He managed to produce something very dense with prints, textures and layers mixed with a strong attitude.
