Suitcase Mag

"Clothes as dark as the furniture. Because it’s a Friday     night out in Notting Hill and to wear any colour but black would be a cardinal sin."

This was the statement that really made me love this magazine.
(Luckily) Discovered by chance, Suitcase Magazine is the perfect travel-fashion-leisure time-food&drink magazine you could wish to find.

Not the always well-known places in London and Paris, but the places you will enjoy the most.
Those where you wish you could spend all your friday nights and holidays with friends.

The true thing is also their very first articles are about some of my favorite places, people and things-to-do in the world -  London&Notting Hill, Mykonos, Alexa Chung and Art.

If you don't want to lose any of their tips and adventures you can also follow them on tumblr and fb.

Love it!

Summer Hint.

#3 Hairdo, updo.

Such an easy and chic way to have tidy hair. Especially when plaited with some flowers. 
Braids and updo are great during the daytime, and once loosen they let your hair a bit wild.

Citius! Altius! Fortius!

Faster! Higher! Stronger!
This is the Olympics motto, and this should be the way.

The atmosphere in London is every second more Olympic, and even fashion does.
Taking a look to the photography of Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino, we can explore and discover the Olympic sports and their style.

Le Versailles de King Karl

Louis XIV, le Roi-Soleil, would have loved it.
The Chanel Cruise Show that took place at Versailles was really one-of-a-kind.

Baroque bouclé jackets and skirts,with a more than a Marie Antoinette touch, and gold snikers that added a funkyallure to the show.

Pastel bob wigs, cherry cheeks and adouble C spot as make up, made the atmosphere a mixture of Reinassanceelegance and unconventional rock.

Karl Lagerfeld's shows are well known to be unique and spectacular, 
but this time the King seemed to have studied every reference under the sun.

Many VIP were present to celebrate the event, from VanessaParadis to Tilda Swinton, to the new muse of the Maison, AliceDellal, who rocked the party after the show with a drums jam session.

Going Beyond.

One created the runway show. The other doesn't love the footlights. 
One was born for the world of fashion. The other declared fashion at first was not her world. 
One thing is certain both Elsa and Miuccia changed this World.
For this reason, for their passion and their contribute METs dedicates an exhibition to these amazing women that definitely flouted conventions. So different so alike.

"Impossible Conversations" is the title of the exhibition by Nathan Crowley, and is recalled from the "Impossible Interviews" of 1930s of Vanity Fair.

Elsa Schiaparelli is regarded as one of the most prominent figures in fashion, from the patterns in knitwear to her shoes, from her shocking-pink to the lobster dress, to her parfumes. 
"Schiap" world embraced and influenced everything.

Miuccia Prada is one of the best examples of Italian fashion entrepreneurs. 
She was honored with the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of American International Award and  is known for her understated, minimalist, classic, cool, and comfortable luxury.
The Prada brand conglomerates Fendi, Helmut Lang, Jill Sander, and Azzedine Alaia to its portfolio.

Hello May

If I have to be honest, May is my favourite month, the one I was born in and the best of the year. Spring blooms, summer is coming. The breeze is warm in the afternoon walk at the park, and a bit cooler while looking at the moon at night.
May is the time when first parties come, the time you plan for holidays and your skin starts becoming gold.
May is peonies, wisterias, colors, long skirts, crush encounters, terrace dinners, and everything else magic it may happen in May!

The Green Day

Let's go green today, it's Earth Day!

From the eco friendly materials of Stella McCartney, 
to the "origins" choice of the Muzungu Sisters -who select each product with the aim of maintaining the welfare and craft of the artisans producing them, 
to the green styles we have seen during the past Fashion Weeks.
