Hot off the press in Tokyo…….Gen Kay x Irina Lazareanu…..

Just out today in Japan, is the new issue of Request QJ…….as you may know, Japan is the center of all things pop culture, a more devoted population you could not find…..to visit a magazine store there is to visit an infinite paradise of fashion editorials……not only that, they shoot the best models with the [...]

Via Tania……

Her ethereal voice is amazing, she writes the most magical music and she is beautiful…..see her climb the highest of mountains…..I love Via Tania!!!

There is always time for Liberty…..at Cacharel….

Last summer to celebrate Cacharel’s 50th anniversary, founder Jean Bousquet, brought back 20 variations of their past designs from the sixties, seventies and eighties….all in beautiful florals by Liberty. They also set up a Cacharel/Liberty pop up shop in Paris…..it was a bit in the middle of nowhere…and I did make a last minute dash [...]

World of Interiors for kids…Japan Vogue style…

After spending a lovely morning with my friend Ducky and her little girl April, it got me thinking about all my friends having children for the first time, little Percy, Jude, Max, and Nicole’s next little girl!  And how I should have something on my journal for kids too….so here’s a little something I found [...]

YSL in the seventies…..Pure Heaven!!

I must apologize….three film clip postings in one day…but these are no ordinary short films…..to say they are beyond the valley of amazing, would be putting it lightly! This inspired filming is just pure perfection…..one of my greatest loves is vintage magazines….and to see them come to life like this…well, I have no words……

Cape Fever….seventies Dior…..

There is a vintage store in Paris called Dider Ludot, in the Palais Royale….it is quite spectacular but not exactly the easiest place to look around……seeing this short film, reminded me of this little couture treasure cave…..and since I am in the midst of a case of cape fever, it was too inspiring not to [...]

Biba….thirties in the seventies…..

As a Biba lover, I am always intrigued and excited to find something Biba….and when I came across this little film, it is quite possibly the craziest thing I have ever seen! But it was filmed in the seventies and the models are quite amazing….it is one of the few times, where you can actually [...]

Chloe, now & forever…….

I have to admit, that while fashion week is an exciting time…and there is nothing better than the rush of seeing a show, a couple of hours after it has been shown, on the other side of the world….I love the time after, the most….the anticipation of what will be the magic piece and seeing [...]
