Good night, signora Sozzani…

  This is one of the most surprising news of this year. And a really sad one. Next to the one about Bowie or Alan Rickman leaving us earlier this year. I guess signora Sozzani wanted to move and live in a rainbow and watch us from out there. An extraordinary woman that I admired and considered as an inspiration since my first steps into real fashion, when I learned about her as I saw her in the front row of a…

Fashion Insiders: Andreea Macri, fashion photographer

Nu-mi este foarte ușor să scriu pe scurt despre Andreea Macri. Fiindcă nu știu de unde să încep și pentru că sunt multe de spus. Am cunoscut-o printr-o prietenă comună din Norvegia acum câțiva ani, acum câțiva ani, iar când ne-am întâlnit am avut senzația că o cunosc din totdeauna. Căldura cu care Andreea mi-a deschis brațele mi-o amintesc și acum, puteam discuta despre absolut orice. Venea des la Paris pentru Fashion Week și vedeam multe lucruri în același fel, dar…

The Fashion Garden Mood

Maybe because spring is really late or maybe because I recently realised that a lot persons I know interested or working in fashion are also quite passionate about gardening and flowers, I felt like finding new connections between fashion, design and gardens. The connections are not only surprinsing and highly inspiring, but fresh and, on a cold and rainy May afternoon, with a twist of summer.

When inspiration is called Mats Gustafson

I have a soft spot for this fashion “illustrateur” – I’m fan since I’ve seen in my teens his “Découpage” serie done for an Italian Vogue if I well remember, in the 90’s. Years after, I  still love his style: pure, light lines and breathtaking beauty. He shows the designer and their pieces or outfits in a very creative way – he’s catching the mood and designer’s reflexion, not just pieces of cloth. So I decided today it’s Mats Gustafson…

Luxury & the white shirt exercise

“Le luxe, ce n’est pas le contraire de la pauvreté mais celui de la vulgarité.” Coco Chanel Le luxe (lat. luxus) est le mode de vie consistant à pratiquer des dépenses somptuaires et superflues, dans le but de s’entourer d’un raffinement fastueux ou par pur goût de l’ostentation, par opposition aux facteurs ne relevant que de la stricte nécessité. Par extension, le luxe désigne également tous les éléments et pratiques permettant de parvenir à ce niveau de vie. Cet aspect…

To Alt or not to Alt – Casta’s cover for French Vogue

There’s a lot of talk about Laetitia Casta and Carine Roitfeld lately. Separately – Laetitia had a beautiful picture exhibition in Paris by fashion photographer Dominique Issermann while Mrs. Roitfeld is lauching in September her fashion biannual magazine CR, one year after her departure from Vogue. As the French issue of Vogue is out, the two names are remembered together this time. The corsican model is featured on the cover. And the new direction given by Emmanuelle Alt is clearly…

Adele — rolling for Vogue

Adele is back. New figure, new shape, but same stunning voice. Must admit, hearing her songs played everywhere, from cabs in London to each and every corner in France, Spain or Bucharest, even if you adore her at one point it’s a bit too much. As a song use to say “even the good can be a curse”. But Adele’s performance last night at Grammy made me fight for this love. In the day when most people were quite shocked…
