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!!

I Am a Woman…

I am a woman…
We celebrate the International Women’s Day, because “human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights”!!

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!!

The Show Outside the Shows, Part 1…

It’s been freezing cold for the Fall Winter 2018 International Fashion Weeks in Milan and Paris this year, but nothing keeps show-goers and fashionistas to parade the season’s hottest trends… So here it is, our first Show Outside the Shows of the year. Enjoy and be inspired!!

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

The Coveted…

It has been a fashion shoe and handbag heaven in Milan…
Fashionistas and show-goers to MFW have given the utmost fashion parade with the season’s most coveted and exciting accessories.. Enjoy!! More soon!!

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!!

Vocabulary of Solitude…

I was so moved with the “Vocabulary of Solitude” exhibition by Ugo Rondinone at The Bass Museum in Miami Beach…
Forty five life-size clown figures in passive, contemplative moods who together describe the anguish of human solitude.
Dream,  sleep, wake,  daydream, breathe, be, remember,  sit,  cry,  hope…. to name a few of our human emotions. As described by Rondinone, “Good art revolutionizes your whole being. It is something that stops you, or slows you down”.

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!!
