Lately I’ve been trying to avoid buying too much black and overall the black total look, but I’m just loving a couple of black outfits that I find so inspiring. The monochrome colour can be reinterpreted in so many ways without being too conventional, sad or (more…)

Imagine…

carré-noir

There is no word or image to describe the tragedy. Over the last two days I felt chocked, angry, sad, scared, terrified in front of such intolerance and barbary, this is the world we live in, but too much is too much. Some words from John Lennon’s song “Imagine” to meditate.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

Je suis Charlie.

 

 

Happy 2015!

And here we are in 2015, new year, new beginnings, new resolutions… Hoping this year will be full of success, great surprises, peace, interesting challenges and joy like in the picture above. This is one of the movies I would have loved to watch during the holidays with a hot chocolate and Christmas cookies and maybe be transported (again) in the magic of this particular moment of the year. Funny how the good vibes of this image are drastically different from the dark place the world was then, a good example of hope for a better tomorrow when everything seems falling apart…

For the first time I attended the Lagos Fashion & Design week, sponsored by GT Bank, Fayrouz and Maybelline who also handled the make up and hair backstage. The designers  I knew already did not deceived, and proved they were on their way to conquer the world like Tiffany Amber, Maki Oh, Lisa Folawiyo (previously known as Jewel by Lisa) or Lanre Da Silva. This group of (more…)
