BLUE-TANICAL GARDEN

Why stopping at the Botanical Garden while visiting Rio de Janeiro would you ask ?!?
P
orque visitar o Jardim Botanico no Rio de Janeiro, voce me perguntaria ?!?
Pourquoi visiter le Jardin Botanique tu te demandes ?!?

 

The Botanical Garden (entrance R$9 ) is a tropical Eden, transporting you to a different place. It can also be the perfect gateway in case of really warm weather.


O Jardim Botanico (R$9,00 de entrada) e um paraíso tropical, transportando voce para um lugar diferente do ambiente urbano. Pode ser também um ótimo refugio quando a temperatura estiver muito quente.


Le Jardin Botanique (entrée R$9) est un petit havre de paix au cœur de Rio. C’est aussi le parfait refuge de fraicheur en cas de canicule Brésilienne.

In this luxuriant garden, you will see some of the Brazilian’s flora and fauna diversity.


Nesse jardim luxuoso, você encontra muitas espécies da fauna e flora brasileira, como as lindas vitórias-régias acima.


Dans ce jardin luxuriant, vous pouvez découvrir un echantillon de faune et de la flore Brésilienne.

Some blue denim shorts and a light cotton blue hoodie seem perfect for this day. You will mostly walk under the shade of trees, so a long sleeves top is not to much. And it is as comfortable as it is kool.


Um shorts jeans e malha leve com capuz me pareceu perfeito para esse dia. Você vai andar mais na sombra das arvores, então a manga longa não fica quente demais. E deixa o look confortável e descolado.


Une paire de short en jeans et un sweater en coton me semblent parfait pour visiter le jardin. Le parc est très ombragé et la fraicheur est bien presente. Cette tenue me semble autant adéquate au Jardin que Kool !!!

I always recommend to not mix more than 3 colors in an outfit. But just one can be boring. That is why I picked this floral hat, to bring some colors !!!


 Eu sempre recomendo não misturar mais de 3 cores em um look. Mas apenas um também fica chato, por isso escolhi o boné com estampa floral para alegrar o look.


Je recommande toujours de ne pas mélanger plus de 3 couleurs dans une tenue. Mais une seule peut aussi manque de panache. C’est la raison pour laquelle j’ai ma casquette a fleur !!!

While I don’t really recommend flip-flops to visit Rio, these brown leather shoes seem pretty adequate for a walk in the Jardim Botanicois.


Não recomendo usar chinelo para visitar a cidade, então essa sandália em couro ficou mais adequada por ser ainda fresquinha, porém confortável para andar também. 


Je ne recommande pas vraiment les tongs pour visiter Rio (ou n’importe quelle autre ville). Mais pour déambuler dans Jardim Botanico, cela me parfait être une très bonne idée.

Kool Tip:

Keep your eyes open it would not be impossible for you to spot some parrots, squirrels, monkeys or toucans !!!


Fique de olhos abertos, pois não é impossível ver algumas espécies de papagaios, esquilos, macacos e tucanos no parque !!!


Ouvre l’œil, car il ne serait pas impossible de croiser perroquets, écureuils, singes, toucans ou autres espèces brésiliennes !!!

SELARON’ STYLE

What are Selarón’s Steps would you ask ?!?
O que é a escadaria Selarón, voce me pergunta ?!?
Qu’est-ce que l’Escalier Selarón tu te demandes ?!?

 

steps

Selaron’s steps are located in Lapa, a poor neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro but like most of the poor areas of this city, they are the most interesting in term of colours and street arts. The Escadaria Selarón are 250 steps covered of over 2000 tiles. Jorge Selarón started this piece of art in 1990. He died in 2013 without totally achieving his work.


A escadaria Selarón esta localizada na Lapa, bairro típico do Rio, cheio de cantinhos coloridos e interessantes decorados pela arte de rua. A escadaria é sem duvida, uma obra prima, com seus 250 degraus cobertos com mais de 2.000 cacos de cerâmica. Jorge Selaron começou esse incrível trabalho em 1990 e morreu em 2013 sem ter terminado totalmente seu trabalho.


L’Escalier Selarón se trouve a Lapa, un quartier plutôt pauvre de Rio, mais non moins intéressant en terme d’Art et de couleurs. Ces escaliers se composent de 250 marches recouvrent de plus de 2000 carreaux de carrelage. Jorge Selarón, artiste Chilien, commença son œuvre en 1990. Il mourut en 2013 avant de pouvoir entièrement terminer son travail.

To create my ”tourist” outfit I just have 2 criteria: it has to be comfortable and not warm since I am going walk around the city for hours and today the temperature is more than 30 degrees.


Na hora de escolher meus looks para “turistar”, eu uso 2 critérios: tem que ser confortável e fresquinho, uma vez que ando pela cidade por horas e a temperatura esta sempre por volta de 30 graus.


Avec plus de 30 degrés et un programme de marche chargé autour de la ville, ma tenue ”touristique” a 2 critères: être confortable et léger.

So a pair of denim jeans, a sleeveless and some leather Converse will be perfect. And as a good tourist I need a good backpack; what better than my leather brown one that match perfectly my Converse !!!


Uma bermuda jeans e regata com tênis converse esta perfeito. E como todo bom turista, preciso de uma mochila, então nada melhor do que esse novo modelo em couro marrom para combinar com o tênis !!!


J’ai donc opté pour un short en jeans, un debardeur et une paire de Converse en cuir. Et comme tout bon touriste, il me faut un bon sac a dos. J’ai donc choisi un sac en cuir marron pour faire paire avec mecs chaussures !!!

My Kool tip
Don’t hesitate to go to the top of the steps as most tourists stay at the bottom of them. You will discover a nice Brazilian flag.


Não deixe de ir até o topo da escadaria, já que a maioria dos turistas se aglomenara nos primeiros degraus. Você vai descobrir também uma bandeira brasileira bem bacana.


N’hésite pas a gravir les 250 marches car la plupart des touristes ne vont pas plus haut que les 2 premiers paliers. Tu y découvriras un magnifique drapeau Brésilien en mosaïques.

ROCK’N ROLL ATTITUDE

How could you wear your black leather jacket differently would you ask ?!?

I wanted to use my leather jacket for a different silhouette.
Here is what I though about.

DSC01088

 

The look is pretty simple, black jeans, black tie and white shirt, white shoes. Black and White always look awesome, don’ t you think ?!?

DSC01099

 

If you are wearing a fitted jacket like me, be sure to wear slim jeans and a skinny tie to continue the slim line. My favorite part of this outfit is the pair of white leather Converse. They match the white shirt and look really Kool.

Kool Tip:
I am wearing a pair of waxed denim jeans as a reminder of the leather of the jacket. I love them.

PUT SOME COLOR IN YOUR PANTS

Why colorful Pants would you ask ?!?

Color Pants2

 

Always wearing classic denim is borring, just like always wearing the same color of pants.
When I always say that you can never be wrong with black, let’s be honest, colorful pants are pretty dope. That’s why I love wearing them.

Color Pants

 

Suit pants, chino or even jeans, as long as they are colorful, there is no bad option.
They are kool, fresh and definetely stylish.

A cololorful pair of pants is like any other peace of cloth; if you don’t feel confident wearing it, you will not look good. The trick is to start small. A beige or a blue pair of slacks is a good start. Then from there, go crazy. Pink, mustard, red, brick … there is no limit !!!

 

My Kool tip
I really like showing a little bit of the ankle. So like you can see on most of my styles, cuff or roll up your pants, it brings a Kool touch …

I AM HYPNOTIZED

Why am I hypnotized would you ask ?!?

Since couple weeks, I cannot spend a day without listening to this glamorous or should I say hypnotizing electro-pop hit.
In April, Yanis, a 26 years old French singer/songwriter, released “Hypnotized”. It is his first song as an Independent Producer and what a song !!!

unnamed (1)

If the song is very unique, the clip is very original too.
A group people (including Yanis himself) are dancing listening to ”Hypnotized”.
But the originality about this video clip comes from the fact that the dancers are really hypnotized !!!

Watch and enjoy …

My Kool Tip
Listen to this song right before going to bed and you will sleep like a baby …
