Lectura de sambata dimineata

In caz ca ati uitat sa numarati zilele, mai sunt doar 2 saptamani pana la Craciun.  Zece zile, de fapt, in care avem timp sa imbracam hainele festive, sa purtam rosu, auriu sau alb, sa ne prindem funde in par, sa purtam catifea si sosete tricotate, glitter si paiete, sa ne rasfatam cu un fondue de ciocolata sau placinta de mere cu scortisoara…

Pentru ca tot a venit vorba de funde, catifea si glitter, nu pot sa nu va re-invit astazi la „Shop My Wardrobe” – ma gasiti in spatiul alb al scolii DallesGo, din strada I. Otetelesanu nr 2, de la 11 pana spre ora 19, cu vreo 3 standere pline de haine, cateva zeci de perechi nepurtati de Cenusareasa si mult-prea-multe-pentru-a-fi-numarate accesorii.  Pentru fetele care vin „in vizita”, Avon a pregatit sesiuni gratuite de machiaj ad-hoc si gift bags, si va promit ca locul va mirosi a prajituri si a bine!

Daca nu aveti timp sau chef sa treceti pe la mine, am doua recomandari frumoase pentru voi. Prima: faceti o vizita la Muzeul Satului, unde doamna Adina Nanu a pregatit expozitia „Ce povesteste portul popular romanesc; veti petrece vreo 2 ore pline de frumusete si istorie. A doua:  dupa expozitie, opriti-va in noua librarie Humanitas de la parterul hotelului Cismigiu, nu veti mai vrea sa plecati acasa…

Iar de la librarie la altceva de citit astazi, lista este lunga.

The story behind Chanel’s love affair with Scotland – “Chanel’s iconic tweed, or bouclé as it is better known, was a result of Coco’s experimentation with the traditional woollen cloth handwoven by the inhabitants of the Highlands.” In The Telegraph

Apres Ski  – “To a generation of Europeans, Moncler was known as the premier maker of winter-weather performance jackets… But this October in Paris, on a gray day during fashion week, a newly reimagined Moncler sent white-mesh hot pants and chiffon cocktail dresses down the runway as buff male models in tiny briefs clustered around a fake pool, performing calisthenics.”  In Wall Street Journal.

The giraffe in the room – “As a fashion director for the Russian edition of Harper’s Bazaar, Ms. Alaverdian is part of a pack of young women from that country who have made a big impression on the industry in recent years. So now, naturally, comes her own collection.” In NY Times.

Tight belts take edge off Italian luxury – “Italians have long balked at paying full price for the luxury goods they consider to be their birthright. But as austerity measures hit hard in the home of Prada, Versace and Armani, the quest for bargains and invitations to warehouse sales with rock-bottom prices has reached a new level of frenzy.” In Financial Times.

Designer to the stars takes a stroll down the catwalk – “‘Valentino: Master of Couture’, which opened last week at Somerset House in London, has taken a new angle on the much celebrated Roman designer. The show mixes up the outfits, using 137 mannequins whose skin tones define the decades: cream for the new millennium; parma violet for the 1990s; terracotta for the ’80s; smoke for the ’70s; mustard for the ’60s; and mint green for the ’50s.” In International Herald Tribune.

Co-creation: the real social media revolution – “We’re in a social business bubble. CIOs are buying social software by the pound, hoping internal managers will figure out how to use it. Interactive marketing departments are frantically accumulating fans and followers on Facebook and Twitter, praying the CEO will not ask too many questions about value produced.” In Harvard Business Review.

An Intellectual Fashion: Erdem Moralioglu – “Erdem is one of the most acclaimed figures in young contemporary fashion design. Born in Montreal of Turkish and English roots, he studied in Toronto before earning a MA at the Royal College of Art.” In AnOther.

Balenciaga taps Alexander Wang – “Alexander Wang on Monday became the first designer of Asian descent to enter the highest ranks of Parisian high fashion when he was named creative director of the storied house of Balenciaga.” In International Herald Tribune.

The queen of clean – “Sander is one of the few who has managed to return to her namesake company—not just once, but twice. ‘The first time I left was difficult,’ Sander admits. ‘But it was even more sad the second time. I sold my shares and cut completely.’ In her new setup, as creative director, Sander is an employee of a publicly traded company: She doesn’t own any shares; she does not sit on the board; if she doesn’t make the numbers, she could be replaced as swiftly as Simons was.” In Wall Street Journal.

Dirty pretty things – “Designers are now seen as commodities, brought in to revive flailing houses and to be disposed of when a fresher name comes along. The most appropriate analogy might be with professional sports, where players are bought and sold regardless of their country of origin.” In International Herald Tribune.

Sunt creator de imagine, consultant de stil, jurnalist de moda si personal shopper. In ADN-ul meu se amesteca rafturile de carti cu umerasele de haine: asta e motivul pentru care biroul imi e plin de carti, reviste, haine colorate si pantofi splendizi. Prin Style Diary si munca de stilist personal transmit femeilor doua principii in care cred: stilul - la fel ca mersul pe bicicleta sau pe tocuri - este o aptitudine care se invata, prin exercitiu, cu perseverenta si urmand cateva reguli logice si de bun-simt, iar a te sti frumoasa si cu stil nu au nimic de-a face cu tendintele, cifrele de pe cantar sau din buletin, cantitatea hainelor din dulap sau pretul. Mai cred in puterea de transformare a hainelor si, mai presus de orice, ca o femeie frumoasa este neaparat educata, inteligenta si cu un interior bogat.
