Lectura de sambata dimineata

“It is easy to forget now, how effervescent and free we all felt that summer. Everything fades: the shimmer of gold over White Cove; the laughter in the night air; the lavender early morning light on the faces of skyscrapers, which had suddenly become so heroically tall. Every dawn seemed to promise fresh miracles, among other joys that are in short supply these days. And so I will try to tell you, while I still remember, how it was then, before everything changed-that final season of the era that roared.” ― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

Efervescenta este ceea ce simt si eu zilele astea. Intre cine in aer liber cu muzica pusa in surdina si brainstorming pentru o prezentare de moda, intre seri de culoarea liliacului si dimineti de un bleu stralucitor, intre multe cani de cafea cu lapte si mereu prezentele mele camasi de jeans, intre sesiuni de evaluare de garderoba si descoperirea pantalonilor albi per-fecti! (la Zara, if anyone asks), intre proiecte uimitoare si dovezi de prietenie la fel de emotionante, asa a trecut saptamana…

Pe cat de haotic pare uneori totul, pe atat de organizat este in realitate. Doar asa reusesc sa trec in agenda cateva date clare, so here they are.

Sambata urmatoare, iulie, este editia de vara a Shop My Wardrobe – daca va faceti drum dupa ora 11.00 prin str. Ion Otetelesanu nr 2 (in cladirea scolii DallesGo, langa Teatrul Mic), va promit ca va las sa scotociti prin dulapul meu; am pus deoparte rochii si genti de vara, sandale si fuste colorate, multe multe accesorii, vom avea dulciuri, limonada rece si sesiuni gratuite de make-up, ca sa nu mai spun de surprize!

Ultimele doua weekenduri din iulie inseamna inca doua editii de Style Conversations*: in 20 iulie invatam Arta de a face Shopping (ce inseamna un plan de cumparaturi, cum faceti un buget, cat ar trebui sa cheltuiti intr-o luna, cum va dati seama ca pretul unei haine sau al unui accesoriu este justificat, ce este un calendar de shopping, ce sa va cumparati in sezonul de reduceri, dar mai ales niste tips&tricks pentru cum puteti depasi shoppingul de impuls), iar in 27 iulie vorbim despre Summer Office Style (ce putem purta si ce nu la birou, ce facem cu stilul pe canicula, ce culori si ce materiale alegem samd). Astazi deschid inscrierile, asadar cine vrea sa participe imi poate scrie la office(at)imagematters(punct)ro.

Pe final, alte doua remindere. Pana marti mai puteti participa la concursul de pe Style Diary realizat impreuna cu Books-Express.ro, in joc este unul dintre cele mai elegante albume pe care le-am rasfot in ultima perioada, Chanel Collections & Creations, aici aveti linkul catre concurs. Daca vreti sa mai invatati si exersati ceva in zona de outfit styling, va invit la cursul de la Fundatia Calea Victoriei, incepe in 29 iulie si mai sunt cateva locuri libere.

Oh, si ma opresc aici, va las sa cititi cele mai bune articole ale saptamanii…

*Style Conversations se organizeaza in 20 si 27 iulie, incepand cu orele 11.00, la Stefanel Concept Store din Piata Romana nr 2. Locurile sunt limitate la 25 de participanti.

At Men’s Fashion Week, Back to Babbitt – “The view reflected in the classic plaid shirts and mismatched trousers, in the varsity jackets, granddad cardigans and prom wear, is exactly the small-town view that Americans since ‘Babbitt’ have tried to get away from. Now, for a host of reasons, these sentimental styles are seen as attractive as a truck farm in Vermont. And, in contrast to slick luxury fashion, these friendly styles can create a sense of diversity — real or not.” In NY Times.

Haute Couture fact files – „Get clued up about the lavish world of couture ahead of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week autumn/winter 2013, which kicks off with Atelier Versace on Sunday night.” In The Telegraph.

Interview: Raf Simmons – “The term ‘interzone’ is difficult to define. It is a phrase that has become increasingly associated with the work of Raf Simons and one that suggests his work exists within a realm that goes beyond any one specific thing – certainly beyond the confines of fashion.” In Dazed Digital

The 50 best fashion and beauty websites– „You don’t have to trudge up and down the high street to track down the latest trends, you can do it all from home. Here are the top bookmarks for savvy shoppers.” In The Independent.

Giorgio Armani: the billionaire fashion designer – “Armani started late: he was 40 when he founded his business in 1975 – but it grew rapidly. ‘In the beginning it was down to courageous and slightly mad intuition, rewarded by good luck.” In The Telegraph.

How to break the heavy packing habit – „If you are traditionally a heavy packer,  the premise of traveling light may be tantamount to asking a chocoholic to renounce cocoa solids. Unlike the aforementioned, there’s no such thing as cutting back gradually.” In Wall Street Journal.

Lessons from the stylish: Cath Kidston – „Back in 1993 when she started the business, flaky painted furniture seemed like a radical riposte to the soulless minimalism that had begun to invade life. I was at Vogue, and Ikea’s bossy commands to chuck out our chintz was exactly the trigger we needed to embrace retro florals. ” In The Telegraph.

Bert Stern dies at 83 – „An elite commercial photographer who helped redefine advertising and fashion art in the 1950s and ’60s, Bert Stern is perhaps best known for his painfully raw and poignant photos of Marilyn Monroe, taken for Vogue six weeks before her death.” In NY Times.

The pre-fall collections: a guide – „Just entering stores, the oddly named pre-fall collections are chock-full of great clothes to buy now and wear when weather-appropriate.” In Wall Street Journal.

The Investment dresser: quirky sunglasses – „Crazy sunglasses are the perfect way to add some humour to your wardrobe.”. In The Telegraph.

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.
