The idea of “Nocturne” in Classical Music

A Nocturne is usually a musical composition that is inspired by, or evocative of, the night. Historically, nocturne is a very old term applied to night Offices and, since the Middle Ages, to divisions in the canonical hour of Matins. The word Nocturne, in music, designates less a specific form of music than a poetic moment, a “musical moment”, of which the night is the pretext. Here is more about this specific exercise that made the great moments of the Romantism era. A Nocturne, A Moment Of…

JSBG Store In Lausanne: A Narration About Switzerland

JSBG Store In Lausanne: A Narration About Switzerland

Switzerland is a small country of only 8.5 million inhabitants in the heart of Europe and what is fascinating is the concentration of talents. From watchmaking to design, architecture, luxury, and even fashion. Maybe the main difference with other countries like France, Italy or even the US (apart from the size of course) is the lack of qualitative platforms to showcase these talents. Here is where the opening this month of the JSBG Store in Lausanne is a great thing….

Can Technology Solve everything? The Modern Myth of Prometheus And The Limits Of Technological-fix

Two distinctive idealisms are currently in a struggle and one is not necessary for helping the other. In one side, we can see the failure of capitalism and how the economic model founded in the 17th century is reaching its own limits. The usage of the planet resources are getting to extremes and many people are calling for an economic slowdown. In the other side, many people tend to think that technology and human ingenuity can fix everything and that…

Fashion Police needed: The Return Of The Crop Look!

Fashion Police needed: The Return Of The Crop Look!

This week, we tried to join the Fashion Police because we cannot support one important thing: The return of the Crop! Seriously, it is a NO GO. With a certain revival of the 80’s / 90’s right now, we could see it not only in the streets but also in the catwalks and red carpets. Help!
