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

I do love my mom, every day because I decided to live with her and protect her, sure she doen't have the same concept of love we share now, but it's ok.
She definitely being herself with no concessions at all she has help me to understand that loving another person is not to share the same kind of love, not at all. rmf #motherday, #fetedesmeres, #bouquetsdefleurs, #mammina

social graces

mobile_picturephoto thanks media.
Two gifted sisters, Claudia Cardinale and sister Blanche, I met both, I used to invite Claudia who now will be the president of Cannes film festival 2017 to attend the Emanuel Ungaro Haute Couture shows. The fist one she came in for me was the show we did at Salle Wagram near Place de l'Étoile à Paris. I remember a simple lady, I asked her if she needed a stretch limo to drive her to the show venue she answered me : no, I lived near by place des Ternes, she told me and when she arrived she was sporting a full length sable coat. Blanche her late sister as beautiful and glamour but none-the-less very human like Claudia, worked as a PR at Ungaro with me. #ungaro, #cannesfilmfestival2017, #claudiacardinale, #hautecouture, #sallewagram, #blanchecardinale, #cannes

La Durée, the most wonderful yet delicious macaron

The best treat while in Saint Germain des Prés? Probably La Durée ! No doubt...The sister tearoom of La Durée, rue Royale à Paris, with a Napoleon III atmosphere like Marcel Proust's unique memory research novel Le Temps Retrouvé. Among the most authentic macaroons in Paris, let's admit it the first one ...The location will catter you a nice lunch too.

tie is a big question: how to ? Would a tie match or not a shirt on some special occasion or function? There are
2 options 1st one whenever you buy a new shirt think about a new tie 2nd option bring your best tie with you to help you choose the right shirt NB there are a couple of tips though like 1 you shouldn't go too big (width) 2 neutral colors work perfect 3 woven fabrics and jacquards are better than prints 4 thin black is ok with black suit as well as silver grey and one classy nautical stripe on navy blazer and DB (hype for double breasted jacket) to achieve an East Coast Ivy League look.
Ah tie bars like on my pic are posh now.rmf #tiebar, #dappertips, #menswear, #shirtformen

The "shoe tiptoe pic" is my personal view of how you mix shoes, socks on special (or not) occasions. Details are : a pair of green casentino slim legs slacks, one pair of xtra soft cotton Paul Smith multico polka dots socks, and a jolly good pair of sturdy pelle del Val di Sieve bespoke patina Oxfords

mobile_picturethe story goes... the recipe is so simple yet the taste depends on where you'll drink it with whom or alone. It comes probably from an old austrian habit to spruzz' or spretzen / to spray sparkling water in high alcoholic wine from Venice region given the name spritz, the bitter taste Aperol is popular as hot summer drink in my family region.

L'apéro à la mode, le SPRITZ de Venise

mobile_picture"L'heure du Spritz" en Bourgogne! ph.roberto
Le cocktail du moment au Prosecco, vin pétillant d'Italie (un blanc de blanc), est hérité de nos amis Vénitiens ou plus exactement des amoureux de la lagune car le Vénitien tradi est un peu plus snobinard sur les bords.
En effet c'est en Italie qu'une ancienne tradition populaire, la passeggiata, consiste en fin d'après-midi à s'offrir un apéritif tout en déambulant dans les rues en tenue soignée.
Les français en sont fous, allez comprendre et comme ma famille est de Venise c'est pour moi un étonnement parfait.

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

mobile_pictureSYLT HOJRTRON is my favorite jam, no it's an english one for once it's from north pole from north of Sweden. Hum I like its bitter sweet taste and more than this it comes from far away, you have to go and find those berries which are actually cloudberries in the northern swedish bush during the short summer there

Tibetans praize and worship those beads, actually they never sell them just in case of an emergency like, let say they have to for economical reasons, in the Himalayas people are calling them DZI beads, pronounced zee; those beads are not man-made, on one side the legends say boddhisatwas use them as enlightment jewels and throw them on earth whenever they do not use them any more. It occurs some peasants find them in the fields then they may be alive like worms or they appear like stones, agates. They are engraved agates, I was told no one knows exactly how to engrave them today, we have lost the technics, the patterns are mystic symbols always black on white of white on black with some differences in shades according to the agates, or chalcedoin gem. Some are said "medicine dzi" of higher quality or lesser quality, phum dzi, people can grate a part of the beads to eat it as a cure! Mine are on the pic and I am re-doing or re-arranging the bead order all the time. I have collected them in Asia, the first ones in Hong Kong, then In Tokyo Japan, China, Singapore and Paris, France, buddhists still wear them men as bracelets and women as necklaces, rmf.
