Carine Roitfeld Is Leaving French Vogue!

The editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld has resigned after ten years at the helm of the title.
Roitfeld will leave the magazine in January and has decided to concentrate on personal projects.
According to Vogue.com, Jonathan Newhouse, chief executive of Condé Nast International said:”It is impossible to overstate Carine’s powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing. Under her direction, Vogue Paris received record levels of circulation and advertising and editorial success.”
He added:”Vogue Paris has established itself as one of the most iconic magazines in the world, with huge influence in the field of fashion and photography.”
Roitfeld is recognised in the industry for her sassy sense of personal style and directional, yet innately French, fashion choices.
Who is going to replace her?????

Marvellous (Super Expensive/Insane) Shopping

Well, this post is a about you, dear friend, who think spending 6000€ for a bag isn't so bad .. (well, if the bag in question is a Hermés of course!!).
If you can think big, this post can help you or your friend, to find the perfect gift for Christmas .. that's my wish list (everything from net-a-porter.com).
Chloé Silk-satin ruffle skirt dress €2,727
Valentino Crystal-embellished feather clutch €2,750 (.. masterpiece)

Valentino Studded patent-leather pumps €692.93 (actually I prefer the flat version..)

♥ Anna Dello Russo ♥

Japanese Vogue fashion director gets more famous by the day. And good for her, because this is a woman who has worked very hard for decades to succeed in this industry. She's also been working hard her whole life to look like a fashion person, which not all fashion people do. Few do it better than her, and she proves in W's November issue that it's not just about having the means to amass 4,000 pairs of designer shoes and a separate apartment for clothes alone, but also about fearless devotion to personal styling at any costs.
I'm totally in love wit Anna Dello Russo, she is absolutly unique!!!!
Now she has even a blog: www.annadellorusso.com




Lanvin for H&M

A second skimpy look at Lanvin's H&M collection is out. This image from the campaign reveals floral dresses, leopard shoes, and ... the shopping bag!
The full line includes clothes, jewelry, hats, shades, shoes, and lipstick, and arrives in 200 H&M stores on November 23.
Images of the full line come out online on November 2, and the festivities continue with a "Lanvin loves H&M" fashion show in New York at the Pierre Hotel on November 19.
If you haul ass to Las Vegas on November 20, you can buy the line three days earlier than everyone else when it goes on sale at the opening party for the new H&M store at the Forum Shops in Caesars. It's actually, legitimately, not a bad reason to go to Vegas.
You'd probably still save money as opposed to buying real Lanvin, when all is said and done. (from The Cut)

J'aime Mon Carré by Hermès

Finally even the most classic and luxury brand, Hermès (which I love), has landed on the street style world!! With this site the french maison decide to address to the younger consumers,
with a lot of pictures of "cool guys" (models styled by Fran Burns) that from London, Paris, NY and Tokyo show off the billion ways to use one of the Hermès key-pieces, the classic scarf (carré) and there are instruction about how to knot and how to wear it too (very useful)!!!
Well, I'm not a "cool guy/wants to look cheap wearing super expensive things" fan and I love the snobby mood that Hermès keeps so far but .. I actually like this project anyway, because .. J'aime Mon Carré !!! :)

Christophe Lemaire Scorns ‘Luxury Prostitutes’ - The Cut Interview

French designer Christophe Lemaire is poised to take the reins at Hermès this fall, heading up the women's ready-to-wear collection. The fashion veteran has designed his own men's and women's RTW label since 1991, which he is presenting with his first runway show in seven years today in Paris. Still, to this point, Lemaire has been most closely identified with the revival of Lacoste, a brand he helmed from 2000 to present. "I'm really proud of doing that in a coherent way and being very respectful of the DNA of the brand," he says. "That's the only way, of course: You have to put yourself at the service of an existing heritage."

The opinionated designer has a clear vision for what he sees as the future of fashion: a return to elegance, simplicity, quality, and classicism. "You don't have to change your wardrobe every six months. You don't have to buy the latest high-fashion brand bag. That's a very superficial vision of elegance," he says. "I very much believe that elegance is linked to dignity." As he prepared for his show, we talked to Lemaire about his Lacoste legacy, the overexposure of rock-and-roll style, and why he calls Purple "a joke."

Was it a difficult decision to leave Lacoste?
Yes and no. I was extremely happy to be offered the position at Hermès. It's definitely a kind of dream, and it's very coherent with my personal vision on fashion. I've always been interested in simplicity and timeless style more than fashion.

How do look back on your time at Lacoste?
I'm most proud of having refreshed the image of Lacoste, gearing it toward a younger and more fashion-forward audience. I'm deeply convinced that Lacoste has a unique position: It's not a common sportswear brand, nor a real fashion brand. I think I expressed that pretty well in the fashion shows, though there is still a challenge to express that in the shops and in distribution.

What's your vision for Hermès?
The winter collection will be shown in March. I'm not supposed to talk about that yet, since we feel it's a bit early. But I'll have something more concrete to show at the end of the year.

Who are your favorite designers?
Phoebe Philo at Celine, and I very much like the work of Apiece Apart.

What made you decide to show the Christophe Lemaire collection on the runway again?
A lot of people have associated me too quickly with my younger work and what I used to do with Lacoste. My own collection has evolved a lot in the past two or three years. It was a good time to clarify the silhouette and positioning.

What kind of person wears your designs?
People who are into style more than fashion. I offer essential pieces you can play with and make up your own specific uniform.

What appeals to you about uniform dressing?
I really hate this idea that you have to change your wardrobe every six months – that's bullshit. At the end of the day, you have to find your own style vocabulary.

How would you describe your personal style?
I mix traditional clothes inspired by China, Japan, and India with Western workwear.

What trends are you appreciating right now?
I'm happy to see that we've come back to a certain common sense: real quality, timelessness, simplicity, and classicism in the good sense of the term. Until very recently, high-fashion women were like luxury prostitutes. Now there is a need for a more authentic and dignified style.

Any trends you're ready to see retired?
I'm tired of the trends going from boho chic to rock and roll, boho chic to rock and roll, then hippie chic to punk chic ... I love music, but I'm just tired of this superficial rock-and-roll thing in fashion. I think being transgressive today is being classical. To pretend to dress as a punk and take cocaine and have sex orgies has just become common now — there's nothing transgressive about that. The fashion pages, like Purple magazine, are just a joke.

How so?
It's just very artificial. They pretend to rebel and revolt when really they are a victim of the system more than anyone.

What's one item you're saving to buy?
A classic leather Hermès key holder.

What should every man have in his closet?
A good pair of shoes that makes you feel comfortable and handsome.

What's something you never leave the house without?
A pair of Chinese slippers for summer and leather shearling-lined ankle boots for winter.

I ♥ Stella McCartney - Resort 2011


I'm totally in love with Stella McCartney Resort 2011 Collection .. for sure my favourite about Resort Collections even if I loved some other brands (that I'll post later) really think that Stella made an amazing job with simple pieces superchic with a femininity discrete and elegant.
The next step is go to the gym and work on my legs, because for sure you need marvellous legs to wear this amazing collection !!!!! ;D











Resort is an optimistic, hopeful season for McCartney. "I love early spring; everything's alive again and growing," she said. "I think the clothes reflect that." Micro-shifts came splashed with lush botanical prints, and, save for some of her signature Savile Row-sharp suits, the collection was all about bare legs. Think lace shorts, A-line dresses, tulip-shaped skirts. STYLE.COM
