Combining past and present, work and pleasure, sexiness and comfort, Chanel presented its Métiers d’Art 2017/2018 collection in The Elbphilharmonie, a concert hall in the HafenCity quarter of Hamburg, Germany. This amazing piece of archtecture and Karl Lagerfeld’s hometown were the inspiration for this collection. The concert hall, formerly a warehouse is a symbol of how beautiful reinvention can be, which is what the House of Chanel under the creative wing of Kaiser Karl has been doing with such excellence all these years.
On 26th of February in 1935 in Tunis, in a family of wheat farmers, a little boy with extraordinary talent was born. A boy who would change the world of fashion forever with his exquisite craft. That little boy grew up to be a man who danced on his own rhythm, saw no boundaries and knew that his art was valuable. That little boy grew up to be Azzedine Alaia.
Life is all fun and games with Desigual!
The Barcelona-based, accessibly priced brand has named the gifted Jean-Paul Goude as their first artistic director. It’s an interesting collaboration, given the fact that Desigual mixes prints better than anyone else in the fashion game, and Mr. Goude’s professionalism and talent are outherwordly.
The show was not just about the clothes, it also depicted the way you can move in them. It was a performance. Desigual didn’t cast regular models, they had dancers presenting their clothes to the audience. And the choreography fit the garments magically.
How many photos of you did your friends take this summer, trying to find that one Instagram worthy snap? Which one did you post? The one where you are flirting with the camera, the casual one, the Boomerang with the flamingo in the pool, or the #nofilter snap, where the sunset rays touch your body so gently?
While the temperatures are still high, it’s never too late to visit the sea and take that perfect summer photo. If you are bored with your Instagram profile and been trying to spice it up a little, the man who will most definitely inspire your next most-liked post is Slim Aarons.
There is an old saying that goes “Art is the only salvation from the horror of existence.“ It was true during the neolithic era, the Julius Caesar’s Rome, the Victorian ages; it is even true today. In this times, ruled by our free will, we are led to believe that we can do anything we wish we could. Well, we actually can’t. We can’t do graffiti. Graffiti are forbidden and punishable. Therefore by any legal means, graffiti are crime.
We live in the era of ripped jeans, bomber jackets and tracksuits. The boyish the outfit – the better. Grace is very hard to find these days. But the godfather of elegance, Giambattista Valli, is here to bring sophistication back.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The sun and serotonin are up, everybody starts showing off their legs, and the world seems like a pretty good place to live after all. It’s summertime, and the living is quite easy. Especially if you are chilling at the beach, or by the pool, wearing a bikini, drinking refreshing cocktail, and checking out everyone that passes across your vision field, looking for a potential fling you’ll remember your summer by.
Have you ever wondered why we don’t usually sunbathe naked, and how did these two-piece garments, also known as bikini, came to be associated with sun, beach, pool and fun?
Mixing sporty and fancy is definitely the newest old trend! You can see it everywhere – on influencers like the Kardashian klan, the lovely Blake Lively, and the baddest gal ever, Riri, to social media unknowns that keep popping up on my Instagram feed. Everybody seems to wear stilettos to the gym, and tracksuit on meetings.
Pierpaolo Piccoli, Maison Valentino‘s creative director presented the Resort 2018 collection in New York, playing it cool, unlike other houses that choose much more exotic locations. The Big Apple and the fast life one lives there was the inspiration behind his creations.
Cruise shows, the most exciting shows after Haute Couture. Why do we love Cruise shows so much? Because they remind us that summer is very very near, the locations are remarkable and the designer’s creativity is on extremely high level. For its Cruise 2018 show, Dior went full Western.
The location was Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, California. You know the place where that movie, Gone With The Wind, was filmed. Everything about this collection payed homage to American history, especially Los Angeles’ past. While wearing Lascaux Caves’ animal paintings on their bodies, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s girls invite us to play a game of cowboys and Indians. I’m in, would you join us?
We live in an age where everything has got to have a name, be classified and put in a box. We label things, people and places according to our own perspective and then we hope that it will be accepted by the masses.
A lot of artists of any kind have lost themselves trying to fit into some specific style or way of creating, and end up being boring or unable to express their true art. But not Renzo Piano.
