Fashion World on Fashion Week. A little flashback on the past couple of weeks and my crushes of the season.
Embroideries and opulence….
Balmain, Dries Van Noten, Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler F/W 2012
Structures and sophistication…
Carven, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, Dries Van Noten, Marchesa F/W 2012
More than just being incredibly refined and stylish, these designer items have a soul. FABULOUS.

Le pantalon, c’est l’égalité. Pas avec les hommes, mais avec celles qui ont de jolies jambes. – Sonia Rykiel
*Trousers are parity. Not with men but with those women with beautiful legs.
Happy International Women’s Day!

L’Odyssée de Cartier. Everyone talks about it. It has never been done before in the world of fine jewelry and the result is absolutely fantastic.
This short film celebrating the 165-year old brand is a mini masterpiece. All the key elements of Cartier’s heritage are there – the panther, the iconic creations, the red jewel case -, the brand’s atmosphere, a cinema epic… And the magic works.
An explorer spirit… It begins at the Grand Palais. The panther goes across the snowy landscapes of Saint Petersburg, meets a golden dragon along the Great Wall, ends up in an Indian palace on the back of an elephant before leaping aboard the wings of a replica of the airplane built by Brazilian aviator Santos-Dumont, and comes back to Place Vendôme, Paris.
The perspectives of the emerging markets are in favor, evidently, but the (hi)story and the essence of the brand remain intact: Cartier belongs to the great names of fine jewelry, it is a maker of dream.
