Black- and white, grey, modern, sleek, interesting, cool and elegant, Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Céline, these would be words that come to mind when describing Vanessa and Samantha Traina who to me are like royalty amongst the styling world. Maybe this is due to the influence of their mother, best-selling novelist Danielle Steel, you can feel that they inherited style and elegance.

The concept of dressing is exactly what I love, simple, no frills, a mix of high end and basic. Like the pencil skirt with the long-sleeved tee, a pair of jeans with a couture jacket. Looking at these photos makes me want to simplify my wardrobe and only shop for the most amazing pieces that you keep for a long time. I love how strong the black and white looks without being boring.
