VALENTINE GAUTHIER x VILA c/o tartan blazer ⎜ TALLY WEIJL denim

Being a VILA ambassador (is it really obvious that I luuuuvv the brand?) means discovering new collections and receiving exclusive previews of even newer collections as the very first in town. Back in August I was shown the very first pieces of VILA's latest collaboration with French designer Valentine Gauthier and now the collection is finally for sale!
What really attracts me in brands doing guest collaborations is that you see a whole new interpretation of their image. Valentine Gauthier for example chose to use a bright flower print, which is something that's very typical of VILA, but added some extra luxury-looking pieces that you would not easily connect with the brand in the first place. Good examples are this Western-inspired shirt and of course the beautiful wool blazer I'm wearing. The blazer is an absolute dream if you're looking for well-cut, high quality pieces that lift your work attire to another level. The classic print goes so well with the modern cut and edgy orange leather details, don't you think? I have worn it for lots of business meetings already, but really like the rockstar attitude it creates together with these aviator sunglasses. I'm looking forward to read what you think of today's outfit and the Valentine Gauthier collection! Oh, and did I mention you can win a trip for two to the city of love?
