Bonjour, Paris !!

Excitement is rising as Paris Fashion Week begins today!!
So many changes in some of the most iconic fashion houses will surely bring lots of surprises… three to watch:
Anthony Vaccarello taking over from Hedi Slimane at chez Saint Laurent; Bouchra Jarrar taking over from Alber Elbaz at chez Lanvin; Maria Grazia Chiuri taking over from Raf Simons at chez Dior… Are you ready??

Arrivederci Milano!! The Show Outside the Shows…

Fashionistas and showgoers are on their way to Paris for the last week of Fashion Month SS17..
We say “arrivederci” to Milano… so many great styles this past MFW, because, as usual, sometimes the best show is outside the shows.. A slideshow to enjoy and be inspired!!

And we quote…

People will always say that you’re going the wrong way when it’s simply a way of your own.

A visit to Madrid’s Iconic Lhardy…

Every time I visit Madrid, Lhardy is one of those must stops I can’t miss!!
When you enter Lhardy, you feel time has stopped!! Ahhh… if these walls could talk!! Since 1839 so much of the history of Madrid has been plotted inside these walls. The place for intellectuals, aristocrats, politicians; the who is who of the city’s elite made Lhardy the place to meet and be seen..

The Natural Neutral…

Watching photos of fashionistas and showgoers during this fashion month, it is clear the trend for bags in tan or natural has caught on… the Loewe bags seem to be the “it bags” of the moment. Totally loving this forever classic trend done in so many interesting, new shapes. Great transition bags for fall too…

Great prints at Prada’s SS17 collection!!
Seventies inspired… geometric, florals, with a lovely mix of patterns in orange, brown and greens. So modern and classic at the same time; so quintessential Prada… Just love!!

High, Higher, Highest…

Platforms according to Marc Jacobs…. higher than his Fall16 sky high platforms… the highest you can imagine!!
Beaded, embroidered, collaged, decorated with a zillion crystals for his Marc Jacobs SS17 collection. Will these platforms, some real works of art, be wearable or collectable??
Remains to be seen!!
