  • Women with Character…

    I’m really loving the vibe of many fashion editorials showing strong, beautiful, feminine, cool women with a strong personality; “women with character”, that also feel relatable and real.
    I’m a big fan of M Magazine du Monde, and this shoot by Alasdair McLellan with the impeccable styling of Suzanne Koller, is just perfection!!

  • A Fleur de Peau…

    “Florals? for Spring? Groundbreaking”… I think of this quote from  The Devil Wears Prada each Spring, when invariably collections and fashion shoots are inspired by florals… and some are just lovely!!
    Such is the case of this shoot, “A Fleur de Peau” featuring Edie Campbell in March’s Vogue Paris, it is  soooo beautiful!!
    So, let there be florals this Spring!!

  • And we quote…

    I’m elitist. I believe there is an art to making clothes and I think you have to earn your place in fashion.

    -Grace Coddington

  • No Cameras, Please !!

    Now, this is soo très cool!!
    Balenciaga released their “No cameras, please” campaign for Spring 2018  through Instagram , and it will surely be a hit!!
    Shot by real French paparazzi, models are shown shielded by bodyguards and hiding their faces, as if asking for “no cameras, please” So very Demna Gvasalia; high designer street style!!  Makes you want some of those great, cool bags right now!!

  • Norma Kamali…

    I’m partial to Norma Kamali… when she gets it right, it’s a blockbuster!!
    So, with the ’80s inspiration back, it’s a perfect time for her to bring some of her most iconic looks, re-designed with just the right amount of an update. This collection looks just great!!  So wearable, easy and fresh. J’adore!!

  • Chubby Hearts over London…

    Just LOVE this!! “Chubby Hearts over London”, the design project conceived by English designer Anya Hindmarch as a love letter to London, that has heart balloons flying over the city!!
    Starting on Valentine’s Day, and continuing through the soon to start London’s Fashion Week , giant chubby heart balloons will be suspended over London landmarks as a declaration of love to the city. The balloons will disappear each evening and appear again in a different location each day. Now, isn’t this just a great, inspiring idea??

  • Spirits Within…

    “Spirits Within”… the Tim Walker fantasy and illusion shoot for the February Vogue Italia, as part of the new vision of Editor in Chief Emanuele Farneti…  at Italian Vogue, a new beginning after Franca Sozzani.

  • Prada @ Miami’s Design District…

    Loved visiting the new Prada store in the heart of the Miami Design District …
    The interior of the store is perfection!! Prada’s signature green walls and checkerboard floors mixed in with wonderful, unique mid-century furniture  from Miuccia’s personal collection looks so new!!
    Loved the store’s special Miami  inspired collections as well. Colorful, light, and fresh, but still very much with the Prada aesthetic. A must stop for every fashionista when in Miami Beach.

  • Street Style Chic…

    With the haute couture shows just recently over, and the international Fashion Weeks just about to start, a recap on some of the hottest looks from the “Crème de la crème” fashionistas attending the Haute Couture week in Paris.
    The shows outside the shows are about to begin!!

  • Linda’s Front Row Fitting Room…

    As if a visit to Linda’s at Bergdorf’s unique shop wasn’t a fashion moment to enjoy, the fitting room is an experience by itself !!
    Walls totally covered with front-row fashion week invites from years of Fargo’s work as a buyer and fashion director for Bergdorf’s as well as unique photos and artwork from her personal collection. All the big names are here… so many beautiful invites that are collectible art pieces on their own. Such a great idea!!

  • Very Gianni Versace…

    Iconic looks from the Spring 2018 Versace collection inspired by, and as a tribute to the memory and legacy of Gianni Versace… Love this great editorial in Vogue Germany with Gigi Hadid, shot by Patrick Demarchelier. So very, very Gianni!!

  • Hedi Slimane to Céline…

    LVMH announced on Sunday that Hedi Slimane will join Céline February 1st  as “artistic, creative and image director, and expand the label’s offering into menswear, couture and fragrance”.
    He will show his first collection in September, during Paris Fashion Week.
    It will be so interesting to see what he creates for the iconic French label, as well as what Phoebe Philo will be up to, after leaving Céline. To be continued….

    Phoebe Philo always manages to create timeless fashion that sets trends at the same time. Céline’s SS18 campaign is the perfect example. Timeless pieces that are also sooo chic and avant-garde. The gold hoops are fantastic too. Surely a trend it the making…
