So whatcha think about Nicholas Kirkwood?
After working on our shoes/leather class we had to make this project on a shoe designer. Nicholas Kirkwood was our pick. I’ve got to admit, I didn’t know much about him, but as the shoes obsessed that as I am, Im quite happy to have finally found a true shoe designer. More than that .. he is a true artist. check out that video I’ll try to put our PPT presentation up!

La Petite Veste Noir
a very short, very small exhibition but in a simple, classy kind of way. beautiful photos, you can grasp the atmosphere and emotion of all of these photos as soon as you get inside. 30 min well spent. @Grand Palais, Paris. photos taken from my iphone
THE MUGLER EXPERIENCE
three weeks after the craziness of the SS13 fashion week, I have not been able to keep my blog updated. Ever since the 20th of august, my internship at Mugler has taken over my life. It has been a non stop, amazing experience, even if sometimes life as an intern is not always easy. September has been a non stop journey of working, of seeing a collection being developed and being part of it, of a...
Saint Laurent Paris
There has been a lot of changes in the Fashion industry lately. Chez Yves Saint Laurent a new designer, Hedi Slimane, a new name and logo . Well not really new, in fact Saint Laurent Paris was the original name of his ready to wear line in the 60s when Yves opened his boutique in Rive Gauche Paris. It seems like Hedi Slimane wants to make a fresh start and Pierre Bergé is giving him all the...
Clip and Go Heels - Tanya Heath
Like a lot of girls (and also boys) I have a thing for shoes, mostly heels. It used to be really bad as I would buy a new pair every week and even if I don’t wear all of them all the time, I m starting to get a large collection of shoes and it’s getting crowded. So as a shoe fan, I felt like sharing this new and creative shoe designer I heard about who created a pair a shoes...
It seems like from the moment I need to be careful with my money (because remember Im a student living in Paris) well from that moment… my mind comes up with all the great clothes and shoes I want need to buy. And of course I enjoyed the sales and bought what were not in sales for the most part, as usual. Anyway, since I can’t really shop for now, I took time to make a wish-list, so...

It feels like sometimes life grabs you by your guts and tears you apart to show you how strong you can be. Your way of seeing things or living your life can change dramatically from one day to another. You never know what can be coming up tomorrow or in 6 months from now. You live life to reach certain goals and dreams you want to achieve sometimes, not bothering living the fullest of your days...

Mr. Tisci, I do not know where you get such an amazing inspiration and how you do it .. but you seem to know how to catch my breath every single collection you create. Divine, strong, powerful and beautiful!
Chanel Haute Couture FW12
Welcome back! I see tweed, pearls, shiny tights.. I see Chanel! I’ve been waiting for a come back for a little while now. I am glad to say it is a very special collection with spectacular pieces and work. I was afraid mr. KL was out of inspiration. It is nice to see new faces in the show and see models from Burberry’s!! Let’s hope this is the fresh start to plenty of other...

Raf Simons - Dior's new Head Designer
Raf Simons is known for his minimalist looks from Jil Sander and even though I am not a huge fan, I’ve got to admit he has done some really impressive work. However I am quite skeptical about his new position as the head designer for Dior. I don’t really know how I feel about that. I mean it can’t be worse than it already has been for the past collections but to me, Raf Simons...
L'Odyssee de Cartier
Such a beautiful video! I get goosebumps each time I watch it!
I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been kind of busy and going through a rough patch. It’s second year only and I have so much important work due that its stressing the hell out of me. And on top of all that, my grandfather who’s been sick, past away last week. It was the very first time I lost someone so close to me, and the first time going through the whole...

Milan FW AW12/13 PRADA
“In her eyes, the designer was making a statement about the enduring human aspiration to beauty, inspired, in part, by the natural world around us. Beauty, Prada style, is a sui generis proposition. The elements Miuccia chose read, in some respects, like a Prada’s greatest hits: the mutated menswear, the bad-taste jacquards, the pajama dressing and the embellishment …”...

NYFW AW12/13 RED VALENTINO
Valentino’s RED collection seems almost like a story-tale. As if we skipped the crazy and busy beat of fashion week and floated out in a fantasy world where Blair Waldorf meets Alice in Wonderland. Each single piece fits perfectly with their outfits which coordinates with the mood of the collection. love it.
NYFW AW12/13 Marc Jacobs
NYFW AW12/13 Helmut Lang
Thigh high boots coming back.. hell yes! What can I say about Helmut Lang, theres black, white, red, fur, leather and suede.. I love it. All fabrics are well worked and structured yet it all looks very soft and elegant. I want all of these outfits immedietaly in my closet please.
NYFW AW12/13 Jason Wu
Not a huge fan of Jason Wu normally, but after that collection I might consider watching him a little more. Im quite impressed how he embraced chinese culture and mixed it with 40’s classics. very chic.
W Magazine - Louis Vuitton SS12
I’ve written already how passionate I am with this SS12 Louis Vuitton collection. But anyway really love how W magazine empasizes the clothes, reminds me just how much I love that collection. And even though it seems like winter is just getting started here in France, I can feel a bit of printemps coming soon hopefully. Louis Vuitton Backstage SS12

Paris February 3rd 2012
I love living in paris. It’s these little things that make any day a little better. Going to work or leaving after work and walking past place de a Madeleine and Concorde (photos) at night. Such an amazing city with beautiful sights. It inspires me everyday.
Valentino Haute Couture SS12
I’ve got to admit It wasn’t love at first sight when I first saw this collection. However I looked at it very closely and I am quite impressed with the details and prints of this collection. I love the use of lace and this dotty sheer fabric! The prints bring a vintage and classy touch to the whole collection.
Givenchy Haute Couture SS12
Once again, beautifully done. The whole collection gives a story tale, yet each single outfit tells its own story. I love the auburn, brown side which gives a warm, mysterious feeling while the icy white brings softness which almost makes it seem unreal. The detailing in a whole is beautifully done with the use of leather, suede, transparence, pearls and lace. just amazing.
