Let’s start with a non-trendy style, as it never goes out of fashion: the aviator, which has been present in every new collection since it was created by Ray Ban in 1936. This basic has once again formed the inspiration for many fashion houses (Dior, Cavalli, Tom Ford…) and designers (Berryl, Porsche Design…). The main… Read moreno validationand3 comments for this article.
The opening of the April 77 did happen, as we said it would, and I decided to go and have a look. It’s at 49 rue de Saintonge, at the top of the Rue de Turenne, on the corner of a fairly quiet crossroads (Nearest métro station: filles du calvaires) From the outside: The slim… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I broke my umbrella! It was mad: the fabric broke from the stem and I found myself holding just the handle. At this point, the top of the umbrella was 3 metres in the air, spinning like a frisbee. -Gogo gadget brolly! People for 10 metres around ran in panic. In the end, no-one was… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
Ok, I’ve made my mind up: this spring I’m changing my trainers! My favourite Stan Smiths don’t look so hot anymore: the leather is scratched everywhere and the toe is about to give up the ghost. -More cheap manufacturing. Ok, ok, I’ve had them for about 2 and a half years, and I’ve not exactly… Read moreno validationand3 comments for this article.
Here are 2 new brands that I haven’t mentioned for a long time: Pull-in and Stereo Panda. Here’s some news concerning both of them: they’re launching a co-branded line of underwear. You can see the unique elements of both brands in these styles available in cotton and lycra. They’re available from the Pull-in concept stores… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
It’s been a while since I spoke about jewellery (or galleries or scullduggery… hmm…), then I discovered the Ikken collection. Loving their work! Recently released by Baptiste Bataille, who trained as a stylist, this brand marries western culture with traditional crafts of the Sahel. African art inspired the collection’s refined design, with curves shaped like… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
And we’re back to one of our hot topics of the moment: waxed jeans. In their new collection, Diesel also offer a waxed style: the Keever. A very nice pair of regular slim cut jeans that’s one of their “top-of-the-range” styles. An area that Diesel should maybe offer more styles in to prove their jeans… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I don’t often go to GAP. But recently, when I discovered the new collection on the American site, I found this cardigan, which made me want to go to their shop and see it in the flesh. Without being particularly unusual, it’s quite a good basic, and also has the bonus of being affordable (but… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
They’ve been called waterproof, waxed or lacquered, they’re shiny and feel as if they’ve been painted. They first appeared over a year ago from Dior (glitter-effect jeans for more than €300) and Notify jeans (proofed jeans in black or blue for more than €200), and this year they appear in pretty much every 2008 spring/summer… Read moreno validationand3 comments for this article.
The British brand Swear is offering many new shoe styles in its 2008 spring/summer collection, including the “I SWEAR BY HUMMEL” line, in collaboration with the Danish sportswear brand Hummel. I think this new line is a real success! Like many other brands, Swear offers a patent style. And because this season there’s a love… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
