mescréateurThis morning I was having a coffee in the café around the corner ‘Les deux Magots’ Paris downtown when I saw the French blogueuse Dgena passing her way. She saw me but she wanted to take the French leave. It was too late !

“Hello Dgena, What are you doing here? She then told me that there would be soon an event on the best contemporary jewellery designer exhibition “made in France” at the “Palais de l’Industrie” located Place St-Germain des Près from 13th to 16th November and that is the reason why she was around. But I will come at the prefall on the 12 November.”

RotondeThe ‘Rotonde de Cartier’ has become the ultimate model for Cartier’s sophisticated men: housed in a very masculine, but still elegant cases, varying in sizes from just 40mm up to a 47mm and always made in 18k gold or palladium.

Cartier’s decision to produce only the watches in precious metals made the ‘Rotonde de Cartier’ watch not affordable for a large audience and not as easy to wear as any daily watch.

Now that has all been changed, since Cartier has decided to release two new models in an all steel case!

The dial finish is just gorgeous and so are the Read more »


VUITTONShared between bewilderment and enthusiasm, last Friday visitors flocked to visit the building of the Louis Vuitton Foundation whose access was free for three days. Some 25,000 reservations were recorded for these open days, according to the foundation. A mixed public of retired persons, families, tourists and some architects explored the building with glass walls in the Bois de Boulogne.

Despite plans distributed in the lobby, visitors found sometimes difficult to find their way and were guided by the Foundation staff. “We do not yet know if we like the building. It is strange to have such a convoluted outside and square rooms inside the Read more »

DIANEIt may be a truth universally acknowledged that Diane Kruger is the queen of the red carpet, but until now she’s left all of the designing up to her pals (Jason, Karl, Prabal—you know the ones).

That’s about to change, however, as the actress revealed that she is collaborating with her dressmaker BFF Jason Wu on a handbag called—what else?—the “Diane.”

Kruger told “Elle” about the upcoming project, but didn’t reveal much except that she’s “kind of obsessed with it.” Here’s what we do know, however: Wu has a knack for designing the kind of handbags that could make even the schlubbiest of outfits look sophisticated. Combine that with Kruger’s ability to look impeccable at all times (seriously, it’s uncanny!), and the “Diane” is already miles ahead of the competition.

Other than Chanel bags, Diane is clearly a major fan of designer brands and has carried some of the most beautiful accessories over her years in the spotlight. Come to think of it, she might have the most enviable closet of all the celebrities we talk about.


oscar-de-la-rentaLegendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who spent half a century putting high society in Haute Couture, has died. He was 82. The man — often described as the “sultan of suave” — not only dressed every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy, but the wedding dresses for many of their children as well, including Jenna Bush and Chelsea Clinton.

“We will always remember him as the man who made women look and feel beautiful,” former first lady Laura Bush said. The cause of his death, announced Monday by close family friends and industry colleagues, was not immediately clear. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, but said last year he was “totally clean.”

“The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die,” he told an audience at New York’s 92Y “Fashion Talks” series in June 2013. “We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.”

Born July 22, 1932, in the Dominican Republic, he was the only son Read more »


margiellaFinally, John is back, and this time it’s true ! After a pit stop at Oscar de la Renta, John Galliano is back in fashion at Martin Margiela, to everyone’s surprise. In fact since that announcement, the blogger and social media have asked me the coherance of this nomination. I keep repeating the same thinks (a talented designer can do anything, and a talented designer should be pluridisciplinary), like Karl as photograph, Jean Mouclier at Cartier’s, Serge Mansau as the designer of perfumes but also as sculptor, Franck Sorbier as Couturier and Master of Art, but also creator of dreams.

The equation Margiella-Galliano seems at first sight complicated, but finally, several factors suggest that this is a Read more »

BALMAINThis year for the Spring Summer collection 2015, Olivier Rousteing, Balmain’s creative Director, presented his Ready-to-Wear collection. During the show, the fashionistas of Alexander McQueen quickly noticed that there was the copy of a white women suit presented by Alexander McQueen at his Haute Couture collection for the Spring/Summer collection 1997.

What a shame! That’s probably the reason why Balmain does not invite Canal-Luxe.org at their catwalk. They are surely frightened that we talked about their copies.

Next time which creator will you copy Mr Rousteing? Franck Sorbier? Alexis Mabille?….

Anyway, Canal-Luxe.org will have difficulties to post your photos as we will have limited spaces for the next show. Funny enough, it reminds us your email about limited places.

For the Spring/Summer 2015 presentation, Alexis Mabille has created a sexy collection celebrating Desire and playing with the sensuality of the female body thanks to cuts well mastered. This collection expresses “”freshness, fluidity, relaxation, nonchalance of a modern and assumed, and terribly French liberated woman.”

Sexy silk dresses, trench coats inspired by the bathrobe of luxus hotels located in the south of France. For the evening, women will wear high size trousers and tuxedo jacket.

Congratulations Mr. Mabille for this moment of modern sensuality, full of emotions, and especially in a world where the sole erogenous touch is to use your finger to choose a woman on the Iphone.

But above all, the collection we saw, expresses a glamour and sensual spirit which reminds you of emotions we had during Monsieur Yves’s collections. He is there, somewhere in the shadow, Read more »

osklenFor the Spring/Summer 2015 Osklen collection, designer Oskar Mestavaht immersed himself in an entire museum. He spent four days at Inhotim, the outdoor contemporary art museum in Brumadinho, Brazil, that marries nature, art, architecture, and beauty.

This inspiration resulted in a beautiful texturized collection complete with colors derived from vegetable-based dyes and intricately woven textiles. Some of his inspiration came through quite literally: Rigid plastic skirts suggested the museum’s modern architecture, while fluid dresses in eye-catching florals referenced the lush foliage. Styled with half-moon flower necklaces and comfy sneakers, the vibe was cute and youthful with a little bohemian flavor.

Osklen is a Brazilian fashion designer based on harmonization of contrasts, in which urban and nature, organic and technological live together.

During the first ten years the influence of sports in the brand was Read more »
