When Spanish label Uterqüe unveiled its proposals made in collaboration with French blogger Caroline de Maigret in September 2015, everybody swooned at the results of such an iconic partnership. Now that Uterqüe asked another French fashion blogger to team up for a capsule collection, the excitement has doubled. The ‘how to dress like a Parisian’ concept inspired Uterqüe to celebrate the Parisian style with the famous French blogger Adenorah this time, who often likes to complete her delicate Parisian-chic look with some strong grunge-rock vibes.
Anne-Laure of Adenorah has always had an inspiring attitude towards fashion, which makes her feel at ease with her own skin and more prone to experimenting with different proposals and styles. “The most important thing is to have fun, be true to yourself,” said Anne-Laure in a statement published on Uterqüe’s website. Besides merely showcasing the results of all its collaborations, the Spanish label’s desire is to tell different stories, wherein its protagonists have the chance to explore Uterqüe’s proposals while expressing their unique fashion style and personality. Anne-Laure, who is in her early twenties and began blogging in 2009, never thought of becoming this popular thanks to her blog, and is deeply thankful for all the opportunities that came one after another due to her hard work, dedication and daily commitment.
“I don’t think I ever made the decision to work in this area; fashion has always interested me but more as a hobby, and although working in fashion would have been one of my dreams, it wasn’t in my plans”.
As for the outfits she chose to wear for the Uterqüe SS 2016 campaign, we can’t help but notice how perfectly they resemble Adenorah’s overall style encompassing simplicity, naturalness and all things Parisian. Alternating sleek leather ensembles, which represent her rock side, with billowy A-line gowns, the Adenorah x Uterqüe spring 2016 lookbook presents some very interesting spring-ready proposals, which will satisfy any taste. The looks vary from conventionally elegant pieces, such as the one featuring a striped nappa skirt, a three-quarter shirt with shoulder cut-outs and the Tortoiseshell striped clutch, to more modern casual-chic ones, like the one composed of the beige leather jacket, ribbed strappy top and shredded skinny jeans. Most of the looks have been finished off with chunky sandals with metallic finishes.
Adenorah is particularly fond of those sandals and accessories in general, as she believes they really are the key elements in every outfit: “You could wear vintage jeans and a white T-shirt every single day but accessories would give it a completely different look. The style would be totally different if you wore it with sneakers or heels. Yes, I adore shoes”.
Other interesting proposals include a whole array of glamorous clutches to be combined with knee-length wrapped skirts, cutwork nappa leather shirts to mix and match either with other suede proposals, such as the boho-chic suede waistcoat, or with pieces of clothing made of different fabrics such as the polo neck sweater or the polka dot breezy blouse. “We create our own style,” continues Adenorah, describing Uterqüe in the same way the brand describes its style: “Uterqüe is elegance and modernity”.
