STORIES: African Queen

The inspiration for this photoshoot was this photo, which has nothing to do with the result but that’s how inspiration works. A theme, a colour, a person can trigger a whole set of emotions and take your imagination to places it has never been. When I sent the photo to Perrine, she told me she looked nothing like the girl on the photo but she trusted me. We shot at Le Blockhaus. The place was packed and yet it looks like we were the only two people at the bottom of the Dune of Pyla, facing the bay…Photography & Styling: Karine Candice Köng Model: Perrine Fifadji Singer, Dancer & Choregrapher, Perrine will start giving singing lessons in Bordeaux from October 2016.

Summer staples: 5 Things I Want Right Now

5 Things I want right now!

As I’m writing this, my poor body is aching from yesterday’s surfing. Yet, I had such a ball… Carrying my board to the beach strapped in a tight wetsuit was all worthwhile when I stood up and took a few waves. Forgetting my swimsuit on Wednesday turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it was only three of us on Thursday (instead of 40 kids) and all women 35+ with the same desire to learn and have fun. It was so awesome that I’m very much looking forward to go out in the ocean again this weekend, once my body has recovered a bit.

The perfect little white summer dress

A while ago I posted a photo of me on Instagram, green smoothie in hand, wearing a lovely white cotton dress and many of you asked me where it came from. It was from Zara but I had bought it 3 or 4 years ago and I wore it to death. The shoulders are now so ripped off that they are beyond repairs but I thought this little number from Urban Outfitters was a great alternative. I also very much love this Sessún Delphina embroidered dress. Which one do you prefer?
