Shadowy day look
Fashionoffice likes the shadowy, cold winter and its fashion and beauty looks. Such as the pieces on this page which are made by pioneering spirits for the ones who are with both feet on the ground and ready to step into adventures - even when the destination leads through the darkest clouds of a cold day.

The collection by Creative Director Olivier Échaudemaison is inspired by the perfume 'Vol De Nuit'. The perfume was created 1933 by Jacques Guerlain on occasion of the foundation of the flight company Air France and pays homage to the novel 'Vol De Nuit' by his friend Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. 'Vol De Nuit' stands for brave women like aviator Hélène Boucher and the era of a new mobility. In the same year, the novel about the commercialization of aviation was adapted for the movie 'Night Flight' starring actors like Myrna Loy and Clark Gable who is navigating through the dark clouds of the night...
