The magic is in the details… or the details are part of the magic!!
Chanel’s festive, wearable, colorful, collection for Cruise 2016-17 had so many great accessories and fashion items!! “Guayabera” inspired shirts, Panama hats, Havana vintage car prints in bright colors, a “Coco Cuba Libre” t-shirt, and even a Cuban minaudière, are all part of a long list of items the Chanel fashionista will covet next season!!


Object of Desire…

Karl Lagerfeld’s Cruise 2016-17 collection for Chanel shown yesterday in Havana, Cuba was lovely!! Many great items that immediately turned into objects of desire; surely collector’s pieces. Loved this t-shirt, Viva Coco Cuba Libre, shown with many of the runway styles. A sure Chanel hit for Cruise!!

Welcome May !!

We welcome May, one of the most beautiful months of the year, when flowers are in full bloom and in all their amazing beauty, sharing with you a detail of a painting that has long fascinated me…” The Marquise of Pompadour as a Gardener”, c.1754, by Charles André Van Loo. Madame de Pompadour, (1721-1764), was the official mistress of King Louis XV of France, and an enthusiastic gardener who loved to surround herself with beautiful flowers. Many of the exquisite gardens of Versailles were commissioned by her, making this portrait so very meaningful!!
