A Step Closer to Perfection: Chanel – The Little Black Jacket Exhibition

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Unde-ti zboara gandul cand spui Chanel? La No. 5? La 2.55? La sacou? La mica rochie neagra? La camelie? La perle? La ochelarii lui Lagerfeld? Nu-i asa ca par mai multe referintele cand te bate gandul sa le si scrii? Si, intre noi fie vorba, nu am epuizat stocul.

Cert este ca Lagerfeld a ales, dintre toata aceasta plaja de optiuni, asa-numita “the little black jacket”, a imbracat in ea nici mai mult, nici mai putin de 113 personalitati si celebritati, le-a fotografiat si a impachetat totul intr-un proiect spectaculos, asupra caruia isi pune amprenta, alaturi de marele Karl, si fermecatoarea Carine Roitfeld: Chanel – The Little Black Jacket Exhibition.

“Sacoul Chanel a devenit simbol al unei elegante anume, feminin, nonsalant, clasic si atemporal, sacoul din si pentru toate timpurile”, cum spune Lagerfeld. Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Clemence Poesy, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen, Ayo, Yoko Ono, Sofia Coppola, Sarah Jessica Parker sunt doar cateva dintre numele grele “recrutate” sa imbrace celebra piesa, fotografiile aferente fiind recent compilate si intr-un album. Ave Karl!

100 All TIME Fashion Icons

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Amen to this! Nu ar fi crezut nimeni ca initiativa ar fi putut apartine unei reviste – alteia decat uneia fashion 100% – dar, din nou, se intampla. Revista Time a realizat o lista a celor mai mari, impresionante, marcante fashion icon-uri ale tuturor timpurilor.  O colectie/antologie/”rezumat” al acelor designeri, branduri, modele, muze, fotografi, editori si fashion editori, stilisti, pe scurt, “acelor vizionari care au schimbat ceea ce si cum credeam despre ceea ce purtam si despre cum purtam”.

Cum era de asteptat, din “desfasurator” nu lipsesc Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Steven Meisel, Zelda Fitzgerald, Elsa Schiaparelli, Madonna sau…Emily Blunt. Prezenta anumitor nume socheaza, a altora te lasa rece, iar absenta unora iti certifica ceva sau te debusoleaza complet.

The House(s) of Karl

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

There is only one king. Si pentru ca in vremurile noastre, acesta este un prototip multicultural si multifatetat, el nu poate avea decat un singur nume: Karl Lagerfeld. E peste tot, face de toate, poate de toate, cu o…mobilitate (inca) suprinzatoare.

De aici, poate, si nevoia de resedintele pe care le detine peste tot in lume. Vom zabovi, insa, astazi, asupra a doua dintre cele de referinta: apartamentul din New York, achizitionat in anul 2006 cu suma de 6.575 milioane de dolari si pe care, de altfel, regele l-a scos la vanzare (din nou) pentru 5.2 milioane de dolari. Cuibul parizian, insa, este viu, populat, locuit si nu se vinde nimanui. Poate va fi doar lasat mostenire junelui Baptiste, care il amprenteaza deja sub forma de tablou. Si nu numai. Sau poate nu. Pana atunci, back to now, so let the photos roll!

Nina Simone – the Search DiP version

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Nina Simone e Nina Simone. “High Priestess of the Soul” si o artista atat de completa, incat cuvintele par marunte si lipsite de forta. Influentele muzicale nenumarate si timbrul vocal unic ne-au lasat piese cum nu vor mai fi altele. Westwind este, poate, una dintre cele mai frumoase. Iar remix-ul semnat de Search DiP, unul din care sa ne infruptam si sa ne amintim. Cheers!

Rock Till You Can Rock No More!

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Heya Fellas! You know…Rock’s not Dead, Rock Lives On, Rock is Forever, Rock is Cool, Rock is Young, Rock, Rock, Rock, Rock! And these are not just mere rocky statements. Deep down inside, Rock has been fashion’s rebel sweetheart for ages, decades and through the hardest times. So tonight, let’s rock on!

Keep in mind Balmain, Alexander Wang, Haider Ackermann, even Cavalli or Isabel Marant who’ve made it their fun game to play with. Remember the world’s greatest Rock icons such as Axl Rose, Steven Tyler, Slash, Kurt Cobain or Bon Jovi, rip out the denim in your wardrobe, add some animal print or some checks, wrap a scarf around your head, wrist or waist, bring on the leather, the studs and the cuffs and get ready to rock! It’s Rock or Never tonight!

IN ROCK WE TRUST

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Alternative, timeless and ass kicking! Rock’n'Roll never dies! The world wouldn’t mean a thing without the endless dilemma :should i take the “Stairway to heaven”, the “Highway to hell” or just go “Like a rolling stone”? No matter your choice is, always put on a rock star attitude!
Skinny jeans, black leggings, ripped denim skirts and a zip up leather jacket! Go rebel with the accessories! Stud bracelets, metal belts and wrist cuffs are a must!
