It is always an honour to be able to attend Le Chateau’s preview events! Not only do they give me an advanced heads up on all the clothes I can look forward to purchasing, but they never fail to treat their guests like royalty. Their events are filled with coffee, food, wonderful and influential people, and beautiful clothes that have me marking my calendar to buy!
Here is a photo diary of the event, including the amazing venue, the layout, what we all wore, what I’m looking forward to buying in the fall, and perhaps one or two food pics!
Here’s a preview of what I wore. Click on the image to make it larger.
Here’s a pic of just a part of the food spread…it was especially appealing at 8:30 in the morning on an empty stomach! I had to break my no-treats-until-the-weekend rule because how could I not try everything on the table? There were cute little tables to perch at with our Nespressos, and here I am with my friend (and photographic contributor/model extraordinaire) Odessa.
Most of the time during these events, I’m snapping photos of clothing, shoes, and accessories that I would like to shoot/use for future shoots. The PR reps from Le Chateau are always super fast at getting back to me with release dates and samples!
Here’s the seating area (featuring the men’s collection in the background). Very reminiscent of Dior’s orchid studded Spring Couture circa 2014.
And of course, here are just a few of my top picks from the preview. Floral embroidered details seem to be having a prolonged moment, and Le Chateau is appropriately transitioning them from your summer wardrobe to fall essentials. Just look at that leather jacket and hat! Of course, since Canadian winter starts in just a matter of months, they’ve already got a wide selection of coats ready for their fall collection
