My Gala UAD 2016 notes

This time I decided I will rather make a kind of moodboard regarding the Gala UAD 2016 and it took me quite some time before I could reduce it all to the key moments. The Gala UAD, one of the essential fashion events in Romania, is the University of Art and Design from Cluj ceremony where students from Master and Licence degree present their very first collections. There is ambition, lot of talent and a highly professional preparation ensured by…

I’m sooo tired…

… were singing the Beatles. Sometimes, after lunch in my office, my head is heavy, my eyes are closing and I have problems to concentrate at work. Did this happen to you ? Several of my colleagues feel sleepy and have different techniques to be again awake and efficient: a cup of coffee, a smoke, a quick tour outside in the park next to the building (very useful in winter time). I know there are institutions where special spaces are…

Dallas forever

When I was a child, Dallas was the ultimate experience on a Saturday evening. Mainly because I wasn’t allowed to watch it, at 20h00 children were in bed, not in front of the TV. I could watch my parents getting ready to receive their friends, preparing amazing pizza and tasty starters, fine wine or beer, while the TV had no sound and ABBA was playind cheerfully in the background. When the well known Dallas intro song started, I had to…

The senior cool hunter is testing a video recipe

I always loved trying on new things. So I couldn’t help myself after watching a video with a apple cake recipe who didn’t need to be prepared in the owen. This, I said to myself, is really interesting – a cake in a saucepan ? I’ll let you decide if it was a success or not, after the following photos. Here is the original recipe (thank you, Tastemade!) https://www.tastemade.com/videos/upside-down-apple-cake …and this is my result If you feel like trying this…

Golshifteh Farahani and Anna Karenina

I first saw Golshifteh in a short video where she talked about being tomboy and totally careless about her wardrobe and clothing. I didn’t knew very much about her by that time, but she was so genuine and relaxed that you had no choice but really like her. Later this year, while having an interview with the French designer Stéphanie Coudert (French Version), I had a big inner smile when she mentioned working with the Iranian actress on the costumes…

Jean Nouvel, Brahms and the Philharmonie de Paris

My good friend Senta came to Paris. She comes regularly from Munich to explore Paris with me, the surroundings and France. We have complementary knowledge about things: I take her to the places I love, she proposes places I never went before or we discover together exhibitions, new places, theater plays or concerts. She has an extensive musical and artistic culture by experience and education. We can speak for hours at a glass of lovely wine and we find every…

Paris in 7 songs

We’re always subjective at music and certain songs and it is funny how important music can be to remember things in our life. I’ve always been curious on how certain parts of your life can be told in a few songs. Music is a sonor blueprint, fluid and “noisy” memory: holidays, falling in love, childhood, high school time, just name it. Today is one of those very grey and rainy days, so typical parisian, so I thought of 7 songs…

MET gala 2016 – the tech white tie theme

As I see it, this theme was trouble for most of the guests – and fashion houses involved. You can’t simply ask Valentino or Chanel “Please, a sexy-something-I-can-look-dashing-but-tech-enough-for-Wintour”. And you should use all humour you have to be original and nail it. I must admit, for me it was that kind of “take a bowl of popcorn and enjoy the show” where one’s personality will make the difference and justify the outfit. The criteria of the selection is very simple:…

6 underrated movies a true cinema fan must see

After I’ve seen Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan and thought that the only thing I liked about it was Rodarte’s sisters costumes, I decided not to not trust IMDB’s rating ever again – this movie had 8/10 points! It is maybe a question of personal taste, but I felt caught in a male fantasy with all the possible and predictable clichées about women which gave little room to a truly inspired scenario. About the same time, I had a chat while dining…
