Fashion Forward, Part 2…

I recently posted Fashion Forward, part 1, on my visit to The Musée des Arts Décoratifs Museum in Paris to see the exceptional exhibition “Fashion Forward: 3 Siècles de Mode”.. “Fashion Forward: 3 Centuries of Fashion”…
This post, Fashion Forward, part 2, documents the second part of the exhibition, which shows important pieces of fashion from the 20th and 21st centuries. From Christian Dior’s Bar Jacket, to outstanding creations by Elsa Schiaparelli, Cristobal Balenciaga, Chanel, Paco Rabanne, Fortuny, Junya Watanabe and many others, designs and designers from each decade that “pushed fashion forward”…


Loving the trend for the bold eye!! Love the arty lines for the black liner, the graphic, sharp angles of the cat eye inspired by runway makeup seen at Christian Dior, Chanel, Giamba, Kenzo and so many others for this coming fall… are you ready??

I Just Arrived in Paris…

Love this book!! The collaboration between Nicolas Ghesquière and Juergen Teller on the first collection by the designer as the new artistic director for Louis Vuitton after Marc Jacobs, is an interesting study on Ghesquière’s journey for the iconic brand. The book-box is filled with interesting photos, backstage posters, campaign prints and photo prints, making it a very collectible item for any fashion library…

Cara Go Lightly…

I’ve stopped counting!! How many September covers for Cara Delevingne??
Love the many faces of this supermodel that have made her a star…

Valentino’s Elizabethan Drama…

The last collection for Valentino for Haute Couture 2016 by designer duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli was full of Shakespearean drama and romance… a moment of fashion magic to be remembered!!

Art of Fashion…

Now… this ad campaign I truly, truly love!!
Model and her supermodel mom, Anna and Pat Cleveland, together in “The Art of Fashion” FW16 campaign for Neiman Marcus, is one of the coolest campaigns I’ve seen in a long time!! Shot in what looks like a retro artist’s studio by Ruven Afanador, the exotic Anna and her chameleon mother Pat Cleveland, one of America’s best known 70’s models look striking and soooo powerful. Top models, great designer fashion and fantastic styling make for a beautiful, different, unique campaign!!

And we quote…

Never forget that what becomes timeless was once truly new.

Nicolas Ghesquière
