Girls Made Gorgeous Boys

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Girls will be boys, girls will wear shirts, girls will wear suits, girls will wear ties and bow ties, girls will be ravishing and fierce in their lover’s, boyfriend’s or best male friend’s clothes. And so they did and here they come! There’s nothing sexier than a woman in a man’s clothes.  It’s not a waste of beauty. It’s just knowing real beauty!

Fashion Week VS. Fashion Drama

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

La cateva saptamani de la incheierea maratonului modei pe axa New York-Londra-Milano-Paris, cerneala inca mai curge, tastele inca mai sar, zvonurile inca mai circula, speculatiile aidoma, parerile taie si spanzura, iar vanzarile urca vertiginos sau scad dramatic, drept consecinta directa a toate acestea insumate. Dincolo de subiectivisme si interpretari mai mult sau mai putin romantate, moda merge (intotdeauna) mai departe, caci sta in esenta sa ei sa fie asa. Tot asa cum si in acest sezon sau, de ce nu, in acest sezon mai mult decat in oricare altul, are cateva momente de stop-cadru, acele momente iconice, care au facut deliciul tuturor, care au injectat febrilitate si suspans, care au scris o fila in istoria stufoasa a modei.

De la colectia de debut a lui Raf Simons pentru Christian Dior la impactul major pe care acesta pare sa il aiba asupra tendintelor, care vad o intoarcere acuta la minimalism prin – culmea –  si nume precum Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga sau Giambattista Valli; de la mult-asteptata sosire a lui Hedi Slimane la carma creatiei Saint Laurent Paris si pana la disputa sa, cat si a lui Oscar de la Renta cu Cathy Horyn, critic de moda pentru The New York Times, pe teme de insulte…cu stil; de la reafirmarea smoking-ului, si de aceasta data via Hedi Slimane, la revenirea lui Jil Sanders in functia de director de creatie al brandului care ii poarta numele, dupa o absenta de 10 ani; de la Hoola Hoop bag-ul Chanel (creat special ca sa ai in ce sa-ti pui prosopul la plaja)  la scarile rulante de pe catwalk-ul Louis Vuitton; de la live-ul lui Cindy Lauper cu ocazia celui de-al 30-lea show Betsey Johnson sau cel al lui Beth Ditto in cadrul show-ului Versus si pana la retragerea lui Yvan Mispelaere de la creatia DVF, numirea lui Geraldo da Conceicao la Sonia Rykiel, inlocuirea lui Sophia Kokosalaki la Diesel cu Andreas Melbostad, venirea lui Stefano Pilati ca director de creatie pentru Zegna, dar si a lui Alistair Carr pentru McQ…it’s all in the fashion drama!

Tiger & Woods, ladies and gents!

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Love in Cambodgia, Deflowered, Time, Dr. Burner…pe toate le-ai ascultat/trait/simtit sub umbrela comuna Tiger & Woods. Matter of Fact ti-i aduce in aceasta seara la Gaia BoutiqueClub, asa ca…in chip de mini-warm-up, ascultam putin Gin Nation. Let’s get wild!

Bring On the Guerrilla!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

All of you soldiers, get ready for the fight! Take out the best of your military items and start feeling the edge! Tomorrow night…it’s up to you to win it all or loose it all. Camouflage is the key word, braveness is what we need from you.

Follow the stylish paths of Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors or Burberry and wear your army drives proud. Pick olive and khaki as your ultimate colors and style them at your best. Choose a jacket, a pair of pants, a torn t-shirt or even a dress. Go for military, rough boots or knee-high ones and don’t neglect your accessories! Choose caps and play with gold items, from cuffs and bracelets to rings or necklaces. Wear them casually and laidback. If it’s something that looks good on camouflage, that’s gold!

Harper’s Bazaar Welcomes Carine Roitfeld

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Dupa multiple peripetii si tot atatea zvonuri si speculatii, apele par sa se linisteasca si sa prinda contur pentru mitica si imbatabila Carine Roitfeld. Dupa ce a pus bazele unei reviste care ii poarta numele si al carei redactor-sef este, CR Fashion Book, frantuzoaica etern silfida, cu smokey eyes, a fost numita global fashion director al istoricului…Harper’s Bazaar.  Amprenta sa va fi vizibila incepand cu numarul de martie 2013 al revistei, care are nu mai putin de 26 de editii internationale. Carine va colabora cu directorul de creatie Stephen Gan pentru mai multe materiale destinate diferitelor editii si va realiza, in egala masura, si coperti, pentru unele dintre acestea. Totodata, aceasta isi va exprima si “abordarea unica” a tendintelor fiecarui sezon in parte.

“Sunt foarte incantata sa lucrez cu Harper’s Bazaar, un brand cu o atat de bogata istorie de creativitate”, a declarat Roitfeld recent. “Sa lucrez cu Stephen si cu o galerie de fotografi talentati se va traduce intr-o minunata colaborare, care va aduce fiecarui pictorial sau poveste, o audienta globala”, a conchis aceasta. Story to be written :)

 

 

Grey Chic

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

If you don’t say white and you don’t say black, then you would most certainly say grey. It’s come a long way in the fashion world and grew to work as an international chromatic language of the laidback, sophisticated and self-assured kind. We loved your greys so now it’s time to applaud them!
