Earlier this month we spent a few days showcasing our summer collection and catching up with bloggers at the iconic Beverley Hills Hotel. German fashion blogger, Dolce & Gabbana model and MAC collaborator Caro Daur came along to pick up some new pieces for the start of festival season and got candid about LA and European style…
What festivals are you heading to this year and what will you be wearing?
I went to Coachella this month and got inspired by the ‘Bohemian’ vibe most artists channel there. I like wearing chunky boots to contrast something sparkly. Sparkles were a serious trend last fashion month!
What’s in your bag for a festival weekend?
Sunglasses (really important!), my phone and charger, sunscreen and a snack bar so because the queues for food at festivals are always so long. I also have a little plastic bottle to keep me hydrated and some chewing gum with me.
What bands or musical artists would you most love to see live?
Beyoncé, Cardi B and The Weeknd – I am sure that’s what everyone is saying. I am also really excited to see Miguel, because “Sure Thing” was the song of my teenage years!
Are there any other festivals you love and will be attending this summer?
I would love to attend Burning Man some day. I love the Jungle Festival in my hometown Hamburg. It is quite small, but big acts like Flume have previously performed there. It is really cool, low key and the people are amazing. I love it.
You’re originally from Germany and currently in LA – what do you think are the main differences between LA and European style?
I feel like LA style is sexier and has got that street style feel to it. European style isn’t as outgoing and a little more classy.
What item of clothing will you be wearing nonstop this summer?
I just love wearing shorts with a cute little top. It’s an easy look and you can dress it up with the right accessories. I love Topshop’s bandeau top, I’ve got it in white and black. You can get tanned minus the tan lines! I’ll wear mine with shorts or a nice skirt, but you can wear it with anything!
Tell us about some of the pieces you just from Topshop?
I am obsessed with this amazing sequin fringe jacket. I am going dress it down because it’s already such a statement piece.
