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.
Something strange happened to the world in the early 2000’s, maybe it was the economy, the rise of the almighty Internet, or the turn of the century, but people started to lose their sense of style and taste. I was very young at that time, but I remember older girls from my town wearing crop tops and jeans so low cut, that you could actually see the wearer’s natural hair color. Not a pleasant memory, don’t you think so?
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. Diana Vreeland 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.”
Fly me to the moon, Chanel, and don’t take me back!
I always get excited about a Chanel show. It has it all, the clothes, the scenery, the music, the whole atmosphere is magical. But with this one, Karl outdid himself. I always wonder what will be the next theme, and what will the Chanel team now will think of, but I never possibly imagined that they will actually launch a rocket!
You meow meow, I Miu Miu!
This show combined two of my most favorite things in the world : Fashion and Hip Hop. Models walked on the beats by De La Soul, and I suddenly had the feeling that I was being transfered back in the late 80’s . What a time to be alive, huh?
With Miu Miu, it’s always fun fun!
With a collection as dark as a moonless night, Alexander showed us again that you can never own too much black. Making it his official color, it’s almost unbelievable how the designer plays with one particular color, season after season.
The party boy of Fashion with this collection tells us that there’s no after party, pants should follow the figure, over-sized jackets are still in and chains make the best bracelets.
