  • L'Occident restera-t-il indéfiniment le seul modèle de société?

    seoul, south korea, national gallery of seoul

    Seoul. Ancient landmark at The National Gallery.


    It's not said that our beloved civilisation will stay for ever the unique model for the rest of the world. 

    According to update news China is re-developing the ancient Asian trade road known as The SILK ROAD.

    Why is that so?

    Oh it's simple to understand. Why should the most powerful to be in the next decade country (China) still be waiting that Werterners give them a bite of the world trade market?

    They just as to look back at what brought them wealth and power in ancient times to understand the oldest trade way, aka the interior silk road or northern silk road compare to the southern one which go by sea (which means it was later developed with maritime roads) has been on successfully for centuries before boats and planes invention.

    So the main idea for contemporary chinese folk is to re-structure and re-staure that road to create a communication trail between enclaved countries such as Kazhakstan, Turkmenistan, Tadjikistan, Kirghizistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, old Bactrian, and cities with imaginative names such as Almaty, Tashkent, Samarcande etc.

    As I traveled many times to South Korea for my History of Luxe conferences, I took one day to go visiting the National Gallery in Seoul, and it's worth it.

    It's so interesting to discover once again Western culture is not or was not the only one as we try to persuade ourself since a couple of centuries. 

    China is said to be invested nearly one trillion $ in this pharaonic project. Will it be worth ?

  • Pour fêter la fin des vendanges en Bourgogne du Sud, La Paulée 2017.

    Paulée, la paulée de chalon en bourgogne




    Un des derniers témoignages du savoir faire français en matière d'artisanat. Le vin et la couture peuvent très bien se marier, les deux n'existeraient pas sans le talent des hommes. En effet le vin n'existe pas à ma connaissance à l'état sauvage ou naturel. Il est le résultat d'un certains nombre d'actions précises et maîtrisées. Et de pas moins de deux fermentations quais magiques sinon chimiques, la première la fermentation alcoolique qui donne l'alcool et l'autre la fermentation malo lactique celle qui transforme le jus du raisin alcoolisé en vin. Et chez nous, en Bourgogne du Sud le vin est un des meilleurs du monde sans conteste! RMF. #chardonnay, #pinotnoir, #gamay, #alligoté

    from right Graziella Ashby and Roro di Chioggia with Chocho Baodaï aka Chocho Cassan de Valry

    There were years during which we laughed, danced and went dining in Paris, every nite was a party. Graziella knew every body who should be known and working with me as a PR, I must admit I enjoyed my life to the maximum.

    The decade 80/90 was a fantastic decade, a lil bit like the swinging sixties in london, but in the City of Lights, Paris. RMF.

  • Non! Ce n'est pas un dessin de mode c'est un tableau "suprématiste" de Malévitch

    c'est de l'art!
    mobile_picturethe brillant russian painter in the eve of the XXth c. stirred the international emotion with his paintings. Circa 1930 he came out with a new idea if the society thru a serie of dressed silhouettes. rmf.

    #kazimirmakevitch, #russianartist, #silhouette, mobile_picture we are at beginning of the XXth century!

    He was the first and he called that "suprematism" not nihilism. It's the starting point of modern painting which means a more intellectual and less sentimental period.
    mobile_pictureOne can see fashion silhouettes they are not. The russian artist wanted to express a strong desire of radical changes to which costume is an excellent choice. Remember we are in the early days/years of 1900. rmf

    Storia delle famiglie nobile del Friuli, Venezia giulia.

    Famiglie nobile italiane.

    My grand-mother has always been telling me the story of our family each time I asked for more including her Austrian origins.
    So now it's easier for me to make research. I knew the real documents are in France now, stolen by Napoleon guards as they lived in our castle in Udine as it is mentioned above in the italian history of the noble families.

    Fabris crest, thanks le ricerche araldiche italiane.

    I still have a little brass anvil my grand-father carried with him through the ups and downs of life. One can see the anvil symbol on the family crest, it's probably related to the fact they were goldsmiths considering their ancient craft name in Venice and Chioggia.

    Summer draws lines on my walls. On this picture, a strange baby boy spread around real pink pearls on the ground like a game. The wrought iron gates of my house are actually drawing their own lines on the painting, creating shadows.

    I comissionned this painting to the Italian artist, Paolo Suman, for an exhibition of my creations in London. rmf

    NB the pearls are real fresh water pearls, which I used for my design and sold as necklaces with chinese emperors inspiration like Chao Zhu.

    It's a message I just received from Facebook. It says in english, we're glad you shared your life with people you appreciate on FB.

    kimi is Kimi

    We know he is no good at interview, shy, aloof, not a great speaker, journalist don't like him cos he doesn't do the show.

    But Kimi is strong, steady, courteous with Sebastian and Ferrari should not always push him on the side, this start is a nonsense we all understand is to make Seb a winner deserve it or not.

    My opinion Kimi should call me I will coach him to stay like he is but to cajole the media, after all the show must go on. Like it or not. Money big bgmoney is involve, for how long?

  • Le Festival des Arts de la Rue

    Burgundy and more attractive South Burgundy is mainly heritage landmarks, grand châteaux like Ducs de Mac Mahon's Sully, named the Burgundy Versailles, roman churches, and vineyards regions, producing the best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Alligoté and Gamay, sparkling Crémant wines. Including the most acclaimed and famous red wine from Romanée Conti and white wine from Corton Charlemagne, the top of the top, no wine but experience actually.
    But in summertime this is no more the posh and classic Beaune city, pearl of Burgundy to lead the orchestra, it's a small down south town at the cross roads of everything, heritage like the photography inventor hometown, Nicéphore Niépce, Les Rousses ski region, fishing rivers, countryside, I named Chalon a best kept secret along the beautiful Saône (pron. soan) river, located south of Dijon and north of Lyon.
    A street art festival is taking place there every year around the 19/20th of July, lasting 4 days and for the great pleasure of thousands of tourist families and fairly good popular street artists performing walking down the streets of the historical town.
    At nite friends got together in bars and improvised street bistrots, none-the-less food is excellent, meat from Charollais region being known as one of the top list best cows in the world giving the best cheeses too! Here on my pic the famous night meeting hipster spot LES 120.
    Although Vin Rosé is not a special of this region, it's okay when temperature is too hot outside, it gets sometimes up to
    90F but is normally around 72F then as we drunk it with plates of great homemade saussages and andouillettes with Moutarde de Dijon a waouh snack and then another friend joined the party and decided to offer Dom Ruinart a great Champagne just for the pleasure of it. And so on for the whole night.

  • The "end" of the known world

    mobile_picturethks media for this pic
      It's not a war, it's not an epidemy, it's a scientific fact.
    Man needs to communicate and has invented therefore language, script, radio, tv and now the internet360, AR, VR, 3D
    Since the 80' period we saw the unbelievable development and growth of the global communication, market, trade, thru the internet and internet of things.
    Think of that Africa will be if not already one of the biggest player on the mobile market.
    On the other end this crave for communication which is also a fear of the void is changing our attitude to others. When you treat a friend to dinner he/she will spend more time on the smartphone than sharing a good time together. The paradoxe is your friend is socializing on the net meanwhile dining with you! It's a VR life beginning and a true end if what we call up to now communicating and sharing our feelings. rmf thks ledia for pic. #augmentedreality, #VR, #internet360


      Actually as any one in France I didn't know who was Emmanuel Macron before his election as the president of the fifth or sixth nation of G20. But now he is a freshly appointed president and we can figure out better his personality, which is sort of strong, determined and driven. It's driven by Bibi aka Brigitte Macron his senior wife who is elegant and said to be intellectually brilliant. French press relates to him as Jupiter.

    Now, the deal at the eve of 14th July for frenchies which is Bastille day for Americans, this deal is inviting with Grand Style the president of the United States of America to what is considered the epitome of Paris landmarks, I named the Tour Eiffel and ultra hipster one star at Michelin tho restaurant (not so hip but chic for tourists) Le Jules Vernes. Plus you really have to know that its Chef Alain Ducasse (on the right bending to listen to Bibi's recommandations under Melania's scrutiny on the picture) is the master of all chefs in France, said to be.

  • world soccer star Ronaldo and his bag

    1 There was a lady in my street near the Luxembourg gardens in Paris, she was strolling around every morning early for what ever the reason, but she was always carrying many loaded bags in both her hands, we used to call her the bag lady, a full mystery to me.
    Oh I admit I am a bag man, now, and always was actually.
    Yes traveling wwd all the time did I say I travelled around the globe at least 19 times full circle. Average ticket would include Paris-London-Hong kong-Tokyo-Los Angeles-Houston-NYC-Paris so I need a lot of stuff to carry around at a hand distance, and a big glam sturdy bag or tote will help, like Ronaldo's in his private jet carrying his maxi haut-à-courroies Hermès white canvas & black leather kelly or birkin bag. rmf #haut-à-courroies, #bagsformen, #sacamain, #ronaldo, #jetset, #realmadridstars
