Lectura de sambata dimineata
De curand le intrebam pe cele cu care ma intalnesc atat de des la Style Conversations ce noi teme le-ar placea sa discutam. „Cum sa ne imbracam in stilul uneia dintre capitalele modei” a fost un raspuns care se tot repeta. Se va intampla un astfel de Style Conversations, spre sfarsitul lui mai – dar pana una-alta, astazi dimineata ma intrebam daca ar fi posibil nu doar sa ne imbracam, ci si sa re-creem o zi, la alta scara si nu ca un turist, intr-un astfel de oras.
Mi-as alege pentru acest weekend Parisul si as incepe dimineata cu o cafea, o omlette si un croissant (la un Paul sau acasa). M-as imbraca cu o rochie simpla neagra si cu un trench si m-as opri la un chiosc de ziare pentru un supliment de weekend. Mi-as petrece dupa-amiaza la Targul de Antichitati de la Romexpo (mais oui, avem si noi varianta noastra de marche aux puces!), iar seara ar inseamna un bistro, un pahar de vin rosu si o reteta savuroasa, ale carei ingrediente susura de rrr-uri si pronuntia lor se rotunjeste pe limba ca un bob de strugure…
Duminica as schimba traseul: as face o scurta vizita intr-un muzeu (stiati ca avem un muzeu al hartilor in Bucuresti?), iar daca as avea copii, jur ca i-as tarai dupa mine la MNAR (pentru ca au programe pentru copii), ne-am plimba pana la Arcul de Triumf, ne-am duce apoi la un film (ideal, la Elvira Popesco!) si, la final de zi, recompensa ar fi o felie de tarte tatin cu inghetata alaturi…
Revenind cu picioarele pe pamant, recomandarile de lectura ale saptamanii le putem citi si de la Bucuresti, si de la Paris 🙂

The Investment Dresser: tees that please – „Rather than aspiring to head a couture house, every designer worth their salary should be required to present a capsule collection of plain white T-shirts. That’s a real test of taste, cutting, fabric selection and holding your nerve: with a T-shirt, less really is more.” In The Telegraph
Mannequins make a comeback – “Mannequins are the latest weapons in the ever-intensifying push to get consumers more excited about shopping in stores rather than online.” In Wall Street Journal.

Why do so many fledging fashion businesses fail? – “Fashion start-ups jump from using their friends and begging favours, to believing they need to create the perception of being a bigger player, with the infrastructure, staff, shows and industry presence of a successful business, before they are ready to fund that..” In Forbes
The Dream Team – “For Riccardo Tisci, seduction bred obsession. He used to collect American flags. Nothing embodied freedom for him like the Stars and Stripes.” Pe Style.com
