When Kanye West Tried To Be Part Of The Paris Fashion Week (And Failed).

When Kanye West Tried To Be Part Of The Paris Fashion Week (And Failed).

Every time I asked a fashion journalist what (s)he thought about Kanye West fashion show with his brand Yeezy, they literally run away from answering. The few I could still manage to catch by the arm told me it was without any interest. Then I wonder why magazines like Vogue do not try to be a bit more critic about certain things?

Artistic Director of the French Luxury house, Casey Cadwallader maintains the sulfurous reputation of Mugler fashion, by giving to women a over-powerful look, between the badass girl and…

TikTok had an impressive year in 2019, bringing in over 738 million…

JSBG Store In Lausanne: A Narration About Switzerland

JSBG Store In Lausanne: A Narration About Switzerland

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….

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.
