Handbag-backed loans tide over Hong Kong’s wealthy – “When 30-year-old homemaker Maggie Wong is tight on cash, all she needs to do is reach for her designer purse—and then hand it over to a loan officer. Say hello to the handbag-backed loan. While typical lenders often ask for cars and homes as collateral, Hong Kong’s Yes Lady Finance Co. deals in borrowers’ beloved handbags.” In Wall Street Journal.

Copenhagen: probably the most refreshing fashion week in the world – “Even though it was established in 1968, Copenhagen Fashion Week has been considered a bit of a late-comer to the circuit. Known for its simplicity and laid-back approach, Danish fashion struggled to make itself noticed on an international scale.” In The Telegraph.

Inside the world of Robert Storey – “Whether creating rainbow striped shoe plinths for Nicholas Kirkwood or angular props for filmmaker Quentin Jones, the work set designer Robert Storey is defined by geometric precision. Trained at Central Saint Martins in Fine Art and Sculpture, his architectural aesthetic combines bold shapes, modernist lines and kaleidoscopic colour.” In Dazed Digital.

Carolina Herrera @ lunch with the FT – „She arrives impeccably turned out in a green blouse dotted with abstract beige and black dahlias, a matching scarf, black skirt and large pearl buttons on her ears. Her short blonde hair is perfectly brushed back. In fact, she is always impeccably turned out, which is why she has made the International Best Dressed List multiple times.” In Financial Times.

First look at Carine Roitfeld’s documentary – “It’s been over a year since it was announced that the production company behind The September Issue would set their lenses on former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld for their next project.

The power suit is back – „Strong jackets, made iconic in the 1980s, returned to fall 2013 runways. Today’s looks, though, have slimmer, more flattering lines, and trimmer shoulders .” In Wall Street Journal.

A Tenessee factory keeps up the good work – “Not long ago, I got an e-mail from a man thanking me for mentioning his label, Pointer Brand, in an article in 2006. This was no thank-you note. I read on: ‘With a lot of hard work and persistence, we recently celebrated 100 years of manufacturing in Bristol Tennessee.’ It was signed: ‘Jack King, fourth generation, L. C. King Manufacturing Company.’” In NY Times.

La Dolce Vita for feet –„From catwalks to urban sidewalks, the Mediterranean sandal, with its artisanal feel, vegetable tanned leather and stitched sole redolent of vacations spent in the Greek isles, Capri or the south of France has become a women’s fashion staple.” In Financial Times.

Investment dresser: the espadrille – „Apparently, André Leon Talley, the voluminous contributing editor of American Vogue, and Diana Vreeland, the pin-thin former über editor-in-chief of American Vogue, once discussed espadrilles for three hours.” 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.
