Edo Komon – cum am inteles o tehnica traditionala japoneza prin prisma unui obicei de la noi

Saptamana trecuta am fost in unul dintre cartierele mele preferate din Paris, in Marais, unde am descoperit o surprinzatoare tehnica de imprimat matasea, metoda traditionala japoneza Edo Komon. Care, intr-un fel neobisnuit, m-a facut sa ma gandesc la un mestesug romanesc. Sunt pasionata de Japonia si de artele lor traditionale, iar lucrul acesta a crescut cu anii si cu viata la Paris. Inainte sa ajung la japonezi, s-o iau totusi de la inceput: nu este un secret, ador Parisul in care…

How Christmas 2017 windows look in Paris

This is an exercise I enjoy doing every year since four years now, right before the holiday season. I take a close look at the Christmas windows of Paris department stores as well as different luxury brands to see who’s got the most creative and innovative concept. Since forever, Christmas windows are a big challenge and the perfect occasion to surprise us, the potential customers and to celebrate the winter collection with a selection of carefully planned products and accessories….

Messe Frankfurt, prietenul de încredere de la Paris

Organizate sub cupa Messe Frankfurt, Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Shawls and Scarves și Texworld sunt cele patru târguri textile grupate care au avut loc la Le Bourget între 6–9 februarie, în nordul Parisului. A 12 ediție a confirmat mai mult decât edițiile precedente, o extindere internațională a expozanților săi. Cu o serie de țări din noi zone geografice mai puțin cunoscute pentru tradiția în domeniul textil, am întâlnit Guatemala, Etiopia, Myanmar sau chiar Uzbekistanul, dornice să-și arate competențele. După paietele și glamourul…

Beauté en porcelaine

Dimanche je suis allée acheter un nouveau pot en céramique pour mes rhizomes d’iris. Je voulais planter des bulbes et rhizomes de fleurs et je n’avais aucune intention d’acheter autre chose. J’insiste là dessus. En avançant sur le Cours de Vincennes, j’ai vu qu’il y avait une grande brocante que je devais traverser pour arriver au magasin que je cherchais. Contrairement à la dernière au même endroit, cette brocante était vraiment riche et belle, avec des collections de tapis, de meubles,…

Paris, ecologie și înțelepciune

Între două străzi vecine crește de vreo 20 de ani un oțetar. Oțetarii sunt niște copaci foarte rezistenți, care se implantează ușor, semințele fiind aduse de vânt în majoritatea spațiilor virane. Și cel de care vă povestesc a ocupat un mic spațiu viran. Administrația l-a închis cu gard din tablă ondulată când casa în stare foarte proastă a fost demolată. Cu anii, tabla a ruginit, talente în fașă în ale graffiti-urilor s-au dezlănțuit, pe urmă gardurile au fost îndoite, rupte,…

Good night, Sonia Rykiel…

« Je suis une imposture de la mode. Je n’ai jamais étudié la couture, je ne sais pas tricoter et malgré ça, je suis devenue la reine du tricot, si ça ce n’est pas une imposture. » “I’m a fashion fraude. I never studied couture, I don’t know how to knit and still I became the queen of knitwear.”     “First I made a dress because I was pregnant and I wanted to be the most beautiful pregnant woman….

Brioni – la grande classe italienne

Brioni a une nouvelle adresse à Paris: 370 rue Saint Honoré. Après son premier siège dans le 8ème Arrondissement, la célèbre marque de vêtements de luxe sur mesure vient d’aménager une belle boutique sur deux niveaux. Echangeant la discrète location qu’elle occupait dans une hôtel particulier contre une demeure certainement plus voyante avec accès directement de la rue, le roi du costume sur mesure pour hommes (mais aussi pour femmes depuis 2000, avec des clientes comme Alexa Chung, Chiara Mastroianni ou…

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…
