Photographic games with Jaromir Funke

There are two things to know about me : I’ve always loved black and white photography and I’m an avid admirer of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The glamour, the jazz, the fashion, the lifestyle!

It was an ordinary Tuesday afternoon when I, looking for a little adventure, found myself in front of a gallery and saw a sign near the door that read “Czech Avant-garde Photography (1920-1939) Open Now”. You can probably imagine my excitement!

The one that caught my eye and made a deep impression was the work ofย  Jaromir Funke.

Style Actually

Style. We all have it whether we realize it or not. But what exactly is style? How can we define something so simple, yet so complex?

There are many definitions by famous fashion people.ย Diana Vreelandย said that “Style helps you get down the stairs.” Gabrielle Chanel stated that “Chanel is above all a style.” The great beauty Lauren Hutton may have said the most accurate definition for style : “Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. Style is what you choose.”

Burberry Fall Winter 2017

Wait, is this Haute Couture or Ready-To-Wear? I’m confused…

The deconstructive collection had it all, pearls, feathers, nylon, lace, knit, wool, you name it, Burberry had it.

If the brand wanted to tell us they can do arsty, they did.

The show began with a very daring trench coat, succeeded by shirts with Mucnch-like portraits, Basquiat-like faces on sweaters, Elizabethan ruffle collars, metal capelets and statuesque outerwear. The bags were outstanding as ever.
