The world of Frida

My admiration for Frida is limitless: her work, her fight, her non conventional life… She was definitely ahead of her time and remains one of the greatest inspiration in the creative and fashion world. Once you explore Frida’s world you can’t go back!

5 reasons to Like the Saint Laurent collection

Heidi Slimane the new Creative Director for Yves Saint Laurent, renamed Saint Laurent recently, is the main topic of conversation in the fashion world since he presented his first collection for the eponymous house during Paris fashion week. Most of the people hated it, well I found 5 reasons to like it or at least understand Slimane’s point of view which was to pay tribute to Mr St Laurent lifetime work.

The “Saharienne” becomes long

The intriguing charm of “Belle De Jour”

The smoking version 2012 with a funky approach

The fur coat more flamboyant than ever

The boheme black silk dress revealing just enough
