Whip out the one-piece pantsuit

For a rock biker allure or the silhouette of a trendy posh Parisienne, the one-piece pantsuit is without a doubt the piece that gives most character to a half-season look. Globetrotter at Stella McCartney, super chic at Elie Saab and even SM mistress at Balmain, its chameleon side seduces all the leading designers. We adopt it for a day version with moccasins and for the evening, pimped with wowie stilettos.

Think pink ! Once again this season, pink is in the spotlight. And powdery if you please. Hurray for pastel at Dolce & Gabbana, Sonia Rykiel and Dior, on satiny, vaporous fabrics and even cottons.
