caddy

Quilted patent leather, metal button, non-slip wheels, Karl Lagerfeld reinvents the ultra luxury version of the trolley for his supermarket.

Pasta with caviar, sardines with “foie gras” … Karl Lagerfeld had dared to transform the Grand Palais into a luxury supermarket. With over 500 products and 1000 packaged items, the models parade between the shelf spaces.

In fashion, Chanel reinvented sneakers, leggings, tweed suits declined in jumpsuit, bags, box of milk “Coco” or candy package. The “must” of these exceptional accessories: the reinterpretation of Continue reading

LE STUDIO

YSLstudio2“Mirror and Secrets” could have been called the new book of the fashion historian, Jéromine Savignon, who tells the story of the process behind the designer’s couture collections.

Published by Actes Sud, the book is published in both French and English, and contains around 40 unreleased images — including sketches and photographs of the designer at work in various studios — along with quotes from Pierre Bergé.

Creating and delivering this level of high quality require inexhaustible energy. Paradoxically, it is to this ideal Continue reading

DINNER IN WHITE SOON

WHITEDINER

Though white can be chic all year round, nothing says Summer like a fresh all white look. Attempt to mix textures and layers when debuting head-to-toe of any one hue. Combine different weights, such as white lace or chiffon, and evening wear weaves, like satin and organza, for an interesting effect on the eyes. Take layering for example; drape mesh in silver over chalky whites to soften the block of color.

White on white is a key trend. For (DINER EN BLANC), Continue reading
