We can say that one of the most classy brands around for the last 5 years is LANVIN. If a woman wears a Lanvin dress she is timeless. If a Man wears a Lanvin suit, he is just as elegant as hot. And now the big event as 2 or 3 times per year is the new H&M collection designed by Lanvin. They started a full buzz campaign on Youtube by revealing part of a making off movie. We can see the top model Natasha Poli that already worked for both brands. She explains basically to the camera how cool the new collection is to the camera. Unfortunetaly all the body parts covered by a Lanvin creation is blurred like if it was censored. H&M makes the buzz. And definetely it works because we are all waiting for that. In the meantime here are some cool videos from the buzz…
Here is a extraordinary video from Fashion creator Vivienne Westwood. “I did not want to do fashion (…) it was to help a boyfriend of mine at that time called Malcom Mclaren….” Just amazing.

The french famous fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier created a very interesting furniture collection for the chic french brand Roche Bobois. To celebrate the french brand 50th anniversary, JP Gaultier is a special guest to create a full collection of furniture and house accessories called “Jean Paul Gaultier Pour Roche Bobois Paris”. We can say it is not a very complicated name right 🙂 Gaultier came up with six arrangements, with names like Dollar Bill, Tattoo, and Kiss. So Gaultier… We recognize the timeless style of the fashion designer and think that makes sense and even that Mr Gaultier could start a new carrier. We all know JP Gaultier, but do you know Roche Bobois? Roche Bobois is the story of two families, Roche and Chouchan. The story begins in 1896, Fernand Roche left the Auvergne to the 12th arrondissement in Paris, where he created a company called Roche close to Fauboug Saint-Antoine,…
Goldfrapp is finally back. After a quite longtime, they are back with a new brand album called Head First. It is the fifth album of the english group. Goldfrapp explains that this new album is: “the most powerful trip to date, a speedy rush of synth optimism, euphoria, fantasy and romance. With life affirming lyrics and stellar production it lifts off at full tilt and takes us on a journey to the heart of 2010”. I must say I was quite excited because not only I have been listening to it in a kind of endless process but also that the group was coming to my city last sunday for a special show. I got the tickets but the singer, Allison Goldfrapp was sick…. too bad. So it will not be for this time. I still have the album. My preferred song is Believer. What about you? LA
Vogue Paris just released a new shooting with…. Kate Moss. It does not sound so original right? The thing is that damm, she looks great. Kate Moss started her career more than 10 years ago and she still looks IN. Some models just pass by and get outdated. Kate always looks like the “next year girl”. She looks modern, young and definitely a great inspirations for photographers around the globe. For this edition, Vogue Paris asked 2 photographers, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to put on stage Kate M. This dutch duo have been working together for a while and their creations are well known for fashion magazines like V magazine, Vogue and even The New York Times. They photographed advertising campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Viktor&Rolf, Jimmy Choo and even H&M. Here are some of my preferred pictures. Kate is eternal. One of my preferred photos…

Who already went to Paris and visit Citadium? If you did go to Paris and did not visit Citadium, is because you are not interested in StreetCulture. Because in deed, Citadium IS THE TEMPLE OF STREET in Paris. The first store, or I should say Megastore, opened in 2000 under the creative vision of Printemps Department Sores.
