Kate says happy Easter!

For this year’s Easter, another sexy bunny, Kate Moss the one and only playing the Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I love the quote at the bottom of the image and the fresh face of Kate, without any doubt one of the most influential model of her generation. I couldn’t find the source of the picture so if you know from which magazine is it don’t hesitate to share the information, oh and happy Easter!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke the weirdly beautiful dragon woman on HBO hit TV show Game of Thrones is taking over Broadway in the adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We all remember Audrey Hepburn playing the delightful Holly Golightly and it’s hard to imagine someone else in the role as Audrey so perfectly embraced the character. I was surprised by the choice but also definitely curious to see how Emilia will perform and give a second life to the sassy heroin.

Talking of Mod

Mod is everywhere. You open a magazine and all the fashion editorials are celebrating the Mod trend and the glorious period of the 60’s, which makes sense: designers like March Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors all did collections with strong Swinging London accents. After seeing a terrific editorial for  Self Service magazine, I talked about the subject here. I didn’t want to repeat myself but I was too tempted and here I am again! Only this time I would like to pay homage to Mod figures that we don’t mention that much, yes Edie Sedgwick or Twiggy are definitely eponymous figures of that time, but there was also Donyale Luna the first black supermodel a favorite of Richard Avedon and Harper’s Bazaar, Penelope Tree  muse of David Bailey, Mary Quant with her famous Vidal Sassoon hair cut… If you don’t know those names, I urge you to look up for them now, enjoy!

The Enchanted Forest

To close Fashion Week here are some of my favorite looks from Paris Collections. Some were just magical and reminds me of characters you find in fairy tales books: The fairy and the evil queen at Alexander Mc Queen by Sarah Burton who only showed ten looks this time, the weird but kind of cute creature (Kenzo, Valentino), the brave knight at Hermes, the good witch (Rick Owens crazy windy hair), and the gracious deer (Givenchy)

Last but not least, Paris

The end of fashion week is here, and Paris closes the madness of the last 4 weeks! I am always torn between simplicity and extreme detailing and it seems that designers showed a little bit of both this season! Dries Van Noten, Christian Dior (very Elsa Schiaparelli) among others showed beautiful, arty sometimes quirky funny details (Lanvin). On the opposite side I liked the simplicity of some collections especially the one of Alexander Wang for Balenciaga who passed his big test with honors by presenting a simple but sophisticated collection incorporating in a smart way the house codes, Bravo.

It’s all in the details
