ce matin c'est marché aux fleurs de balcon

mobile_picturephoto roberto 2016 "en Avril ne te découvre pas d'un fil!"
c'est vrai il fait frais ce matin, presque comme au ski. Je prends un café le fameux "first morning coffee" enfin le 3e en réalité mais cette fois avec Mimi au Dôme et ensuite je vais comme presque tous les matins faire le marché. Aujourd'hui les maraîchers sont venus avec des petits pots de fleurs et de planted aromatiques de balcon...

enfant j'adorais lire dans mes greniers La Corriere della Sera, Newsweek ou Paris Match et Stern

mobile_pictureL'Avvocato Gianni Agnelli king of Italy. Feu Gianni était le master incontesté de la fameuse fashion attitude qu'on appelle au delà des Alpes, la SPREZZATURA. Une désinvolte manière de se comporter et de s'habiller avec élégance et décontraction en quelque sorte mais à la manière de Rabelais i.e. entre gens élégants.
J'aime cette photo (thks media) qui décrit bien l'avocat, grand patron de Fiat industries à Turin, mari de la divine Marella principessa Caracciolo di Castagneto.
Quand il pleuvait à la fin de l'été je me réfugiais dans un vieux grenier poussiéreux à souhait et inaccessible sauf par une trappe difficile à repérer et passais des heures sous les toits de la grande villa des Dolomites où ma grand-mère est née, en compagnie des célébrités d'une époque révolue : le XXe siècle.rmf

#ELLE collection pour hommes, un défi!

As I was appointed as a CD which is AD in publicity oh I mean creative director in fashion for the ELLE licensing business in Asia, I decided to look for the meaning of scripts on items such as tee shirts for all the 40 different lines. To my biggest surprise I saw many misspellings around, non sense sentences and so on. So when I decided to transform this 20 years old license biz into a trendy line it wasn't so easy and the more reluctant ones were the design teams in Levallois the HQ offices, where the mentality was locked into a bizarre attitude, a sort of "we are a magazine not a fashion clothing corp"
mobile_pictureI magine how difficult it has been to both satisfy the japanese partners, Itokin and the fashion editors in France? Fortunately at this time Catherine Rousso the fashion editor in chief who hired me thru the exec staff in Paris, a bunch of bras-cassés we say in french, people without any expertise, and decided I could do what I wanted in the limits of their image.
On the pic a talking teeshirt for ELLE Homme line a true challenge because ELLE is supposed to be a feminine mag except "elle" doesn't mean anything like femme in japanese! That the reason of the starting success of a male line in Tokyo

mobile_pictureCette année le thème de ma collection reprenait les codes de toujours, une femme qui voyage, romantique à souhait, à la poursuite du rêve, emportant l'essentiel dans ses bagages.
D'abord un choix de belles matières du cuir, du merinos, du llama, de l'alpacca, de la soie et du coton d'Egypte et bien sûr des armures raffinées du grain de poudre, des broderies et des dentelles et de l'agneau plongé pur.
Le voyage étant illustré par des moyens de transports comme une limousine garée mystérieusement sur les bords de Seine, une voie ferrée et un train en gare de Lyon, une rue de Paris, un réverbère et enfin un hélicoptère...Ruve fut choisie comme mannequin, coiffée par Hamid et photographiée par Jean Marc Scialom, le tout dans les plus prestigieux glossy mags et voilà!

mobile_picture villar perosa not only is a charming little town in Alps contraforti/foothills of northern Italy but it's a divine dwelling of powerful yet tragic striken family Agnelli who's last grande dame and dowager of sort is Marella Agnelli contessa Caracciolo di Castagneto, la signora Agnelli wife to the late and brashly elegant Gianni padrone della Fiat car corp. himself a could be considered king of Italy
And to mention insider : one could have found there are probably more servants at barocco palace villar perosa, the name of their estate, than actually workers at Fiat corp.
