Lectura de sambata dimineata

Clipe de ragaz la finalul unei saptamani navalnice, intense, aglomerate: cu petale de trandafiri roz scuturate de ploaie si plimbari de dimineata, cu sesiuni de personal shopping si sesiuni de filmari, cu esarfe seducatoare din matase de la Tie Me Up si cesti delicioase de cafea la Coftale (trebuie sa ajungeti neaparat sa beti o cafea facuta de Antonio, in vila aceasta dintr-un cartier vechi al Bucurestilor!), cu discutii despre adolescente si despre lingurite de argint, cu idei de proiecte stralucitoare si limpezi ca cristalul, cu intalniri miraculoase, cu rame aurii de tablouri si sandale cu tocuri inalte, cu arhitectura neo-clasica si cu o macaron, roz la fel ca petalele de trandafiri din ploaie, mancata pe furis…

Iar pentru timpul fuge, fuge, fuge, ma grabesc sa postez cateva articole interesante, nu inainte de a va invita sa intrati la Salonul de Vintage de la Vila Casara (este pe Dorobanti, inaintea liceului Caragiale), sa va faceti timp si pentru Romanian Design Week, poate sa mergeti la un film la NCRR sau macar sa stati pe o banca la umbra, citind o carte.

A luxury house takes its artisans on a global tour –  “Two days ago the Saatchi gallery on King’s Road, London threw open its doors and enormous,white-walled space to a new show. Visitors streamed in but this time they were not ogling the latest in Chinese painting or yet another YBA retrospective, but art of an altogether different kind: 11 Hermès craftsmen demonstrating their daily routine in leathergoods, silk, gem-setting and tailoring.” In Financial Times.

The investment dresser: peplum tops – „And so the poor old peplum got a second kicking. If there was a slightly bulky female contestant on The X-Factor between 2009 and 2012 who didn’t get vacuum-packed into a shiny peplum dress, it certainly wasn’t for want of the show’s style advisers giving it a go.”. In The Telegraph.

Less ab, more flab – „“Sex sells, you know, and nowhere is this truer than in the booming business of briefs, where the imagery has followed an ever-more-provocative and chiseled trajectory since Marky Mark dropped trou for Calvin Klein in 1992.” In NY Times.

Mencyclopedia: Ted Baker – “At Ted Baker HQ there’s an animatronic nodding dog in the lobby, the staff loos are lined with corporate press cuttings (maybe this one will make the smallest room), and a breathy female voice in the lift beseeches passengers to press her button.”  In The Telegraph.

Kamel Hamadou at Hermès – “When Hermès, the 175-year-old French luxury house synonymous with timeless elegance launched the silk square or “Carré” in 1937; few could have predicted that a simple 90 by 90 centimetre square of silk twill would attain such must-have status…” In AnOther

Soul-searching in Spanish fashion after Bangladesh factory deaths – „Homegrown Spanish fashion brands like Zara and Mango have been rare success stories in Spain amid its wrenching economic depression. But now a series of deadly accidents at overseas sewing plants are causing some soul-searching about the cost of looking good—especially at a time when Spain’s own textile industry has been hollowed out by imports and outsourcing, while Spain’s consumers are increasingly too impoverished to afford new clothing.”. In Wall Street Journal.

20 odd questions with Catherine Martin – „Aa the brains behind the look of the films her husband, Baz Luhrmann, directs—including „Romeo + Juliet” and „Moulin Rouge”—production designer Catherine Martin has envisioned Shakespeare’s tragic hero in a Hawaiian shirt and turned Belle Époque Paris into a psychedelic fantasy. To create the sets and costumes for „Gatsby,”  she researched the look of houses in 1920s Long Island, and paid several visits to the island in search of Mr. Fitzgerald’s inspiration for his fictional East and West Egg villages.” In Wall Street Journal.

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.
