A behind the scenes peek  into the creative process of creating a fragrance in which the “parfumeur exclusif” of the house of Hermès chronicles his travels and experiments.

That could be reason enough, but let’s not kid ourselves: I would probably buy that one for the looks only. Same thing applies when it comes to this watch.

And all I can think about is spring. And all white looks. The off-white sweatshirt by Iro seems like a good option (I quite like the  short sleeves with turned-up cuffs), especially when combined with a white jean (slightly on the slouchy side). (5) The final touch would be brought courtesy by Converse. Good old chucks. They don’t need any introduction, right? For some, they might be too „cliché“. For me, they seem just right.
