Fashion Weeks are upon us , and with it an influx of cool French femmes like designer Isabel Marant, actress Clemence Poesy, and model Anais Pouliot. (Claire, Jenna, Prisca, and Virginie Courtin-Clarins will be front-row, too.) But how do you speak with the French style posse on their own terms? suivez-moi and I'll show you!

(Latin) Love conquers all things. This is one of the few Latin phrases, over the centuries, which has been widely used enough to be included in the English language dictionary. 
  • Shortly before the start of the first millennium, the Roman poet Virgil wrote “love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love.”The phrase and the concept (in Latin and in English) caught on: a character in Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, written in the late 1300s, wore a brooch engraved Amor Vincit Omnia; Caravaggio used the phrase as the title of his painting of Cupid in the early seventeenth century; the twentieth century poet Edgar Bowers reinterpreted the phrase all over again in the poem with that title.

Apple watch edition

What’s more, just as the iPod, iPhone and iPad created a whole new leather goods category dedicated to carrying tech accessories, I would also expect a similar mini-industry to sprout up around the new Apple iWatch. Might traditional luxury brands like Hermès, Gucci or Louis Vuitton create their own straps or accessories for Watch?
Watch this space. Apple has just completely changed the game.

archive monogram Louis Vuitton The Icon and the Iconoclasts: A Celebration of Monogram

In 1896 Georges Vuitton created the Monogram, utilising the LV initials as a tribute to his late father, Louis Vuitton, who had died four years previously.
Revolutionary in its time, The Monogram is one of the first symbols of French modern design. The Monogram pattern is composed of stylised flowers and letters organised geometrically – there is some debate as to whether the graphic design owes a debt to the neo-Gothic style or to the influence of Japonisme. The tiles in the Vuitton family home might also have inspired Georges.
THE Monogram is now recognised globally as a defining signature, both literally and metaphorically, of the house of Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton has launched a new monogram collection with Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Rei Kawakubo, and Mark Newson collaborating on the designs.

Wealthy Miami

Miami as a millionaire’s playground? Been there, done that, got the tuxedo. That was the Miami of the 1930s through the 1950s, culminating in the years when Dean, Sammy, Frank, and the rest of the Rat Pack made Miami Beach clubs like Copa City and the iconic Fontainebleau hotel a part of their lives.
Fast-forward five decades and the wheel has come full circle. This time around, however, Miami—and Miami Beach, in particular—isn’t just appealing to plain-vanilla, single-digit millionaires; it’s an elite group of billionaires who have rediscovered the city.

La grâce, plus belle encore que la beauté.

Those equestrian horse riding pants maybe just as sexy as yoga pants.

 The Beauty is in the genes....they have it....The Courtin-Clarins sisters and cousins

Elles sont très friandes des marques établies comme Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace, Fendi mais aussi – comme toute it Girl qui se respecte – de la nouvelle vague de jeunes designers new yorkais (Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler..).

This occurred to me.....Miami is like Casablanca was...like the Humphrey Bogart movie  where all type of shady characters were there.

When I see an old movie, like from the ’40s or ’50s or ’60s, the people look so calm.They don’t have smart phones, they’re not looking at computer screens, they’re taking their time. They’ll sit in a chair and look so content. I think some day we’ll find our way back to that garden of Eden.

and now

Ricky Nelson was one of the very biggest of the '50s teen idols, so it took awhile for him to attain the same level of critical respectability as other early rock greats. Yet now the consensus is that he made some of the finest pop/rock recordings of his era. Sure, he had more promotional push than any other rock musician of the '50s; no, he wasn't the greatest singer; and yes, Elvis, Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins, and others rocked harder.  

I had GOLD for lunch and it tasted like risotto with lobster and white truffles(smiles)

I love Prada black boxers but I am trying this option....Calvin Klein Concept, a line of underwear so comfortable, a line so soft and so blissfully contoured, you’ll be forced to wonder whether you even put them on at all. They’ve got 360-degree seamless technology (yes, underwear has its own technology now), which is basically a way of saying you won’t have that one terrible pointy thread digging into your thigh all day...they feel really nice....will I totally change from Prada...of course not...........but i do like how they look on me....and yes, I am 6'3" (1.905m) la misma estatura que mi amiga, Maria Sharapova.........

and the women concept is not shabby either..........

It looks better in Black...it does....try it and you will like it.

Miroslava Duma may stand just a fraction over five feet in her size XS Wolford stocking soles, yet her towering online presence has made her virtually larger than life. The sheer ferocity of interest in her—take a peek at the Instagram comments on whatever new look of hers she has uploaded if you don’t believe me—can make it seem as if more and more Mira's of ever-increasing magnitude are revealing themselves before your very eyes.

a little take on Japan

When one looks up Gambatte in the foreign dictionary, it really isn´t much of a help. It just tells you that Gambatte is one of those special Japanese phrases, which cannot really be translated into English –Gambatte – is to “Work hard!” - the second meaning of Gambatte – which is to “try your best”. 

男は度胸、女は愛嬌。Men should have courage, women should have charm. (Japanese proverb)

Japanese have used the English word kiss ever since modernizing in the Meiji Era, but you still encounter the original Edo Period word 接吻 seppun, which can have a more archaic but poetic feel to it. The Japanese use the word pink for the color, which is very easy for foreigners to pick up on, but sometimes will use the original Japanese term 桃色 momo-iro(lit. "peach colored") if they're feeling random.

Professor Ivo Pitangy
As belezas que só Ivo Pitanguy é capaz de fazer! The Beautiful women that Dr Ivo Pitanguy can only produce.

While living in Rio de Janeiro (Alto Leblon) in 1999, I saw something that caught my attention: a television broadcast of a Carnival parade that paid homage to a plastic surgeon, Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. The doctor led the procession surrounded by samba dancers in feathers and bikinis. Over a thundering drum section and anarchic screech of a cuica, the singer praised Pitanguy for “awakening the self-esteem in each ego” with a “scalpel guided by heaven.”

some of the best, some of the chic and some of the beautiful in the world!!!!

Anna Wintour

You HAVE to watch this video. This is not a post you just click on and move along. Watch Anna Wintour in full, from question 1 to 73,  as she walks around the Vogue office cheerful and lovely as a bouquet of daisies. She even takes a call from the beautiful and charming Mr. Oscar de la Renta. Here are ten reasons this Anna Wintour video is worth watching, otherwise known as ten facts we found completely surprising in watching this "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" around Vogue.

1. Anna Wintour does not like the word "Journey" in fashion. Ummmm interesting. Designers, take note and ban this word from your vocabulary permanently. 

2. Anna believes Brooklyn is "the new Silicon Valley."

3. Anna Wintour cannot sing. Sadly, no musicals starring the Editor of Vogue anytime soon, people.

4. You will never ever see Anna Wintour in head to toe black. Karlie Kloss cleared that up for us. 

5. Anna Wintour is a Jane Austen fan, watch the video below to find out her favourite book.

6. When asked what Anna misses about England, she responds with 'humor'. Make of that what you will.

7. Anna Wintour does not drink.

8. Although Anna says the greatest invention of all time is anything by Apple, she still uses a flip phone. Well, isn't that interesting.

9. It seems Anna may be trying to learn Chinese but is having difficulty.

And finally, Anna Wintour has NEVER TAKEN A SELFIE. What a surprise.

Watch all those and 63 more facts revealed in this week's 73 Questions with Anna Wintour.

Ever wonder what happens to the hundreds of thousands of fashion pictures that don’t make it to print? Some of them are deleted, some of them are probably on a giant hard drive somewhere

A day in the life of Karlie Kloss

From facials, to working out, subways to runways, Karlie Kloss has anything but a "normal" day of the week, any day of the week. Vogue commissioned videographer Casey Neistat to spend the day with Karlie Kloss during fashion week and record what went down. Yes, this is the glamourous life of Karle Kloss. Sure, it looks super fab, but it also looks like a lot of hard work. Yet, Miss Kloss does it all with a smile and a wonderful sense of herself. Something to be said for that, in a big way.
