ART DECO CRAVE / artist Serge Lutens

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

The walhalla did open for a short time

Thor came down from his Walhalla and the dwarf folk of France wasn't upset but raptured instead.
This dude was sweet and attractive I mean in its own kind sure, towering at 6/4 ft at least I never saw him nervous, bothered or excited, he was just cool and glad to be there, enjoying popularity and the street party going on the all day long till nite. rmf #thor, #gameofthronessequel, #walhalla, #festivaldesartsdelarue.

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

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

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

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

during long hot summer there is no place like home

mobile_picturephoto roberto fabris.
I never leave home in summer time, why should I ?
it's generally the best moments of the year, where you live, sun, heat, can do long nites out with friends, drink good wines or prosecco, eat vegan but fun, sip smoothies with children, you dress sexy, colorful and lite too, listen at dusk good romantic musics, why should we leave for where?

the glass roof syndrom

mobile_picturethks media for pic. I always like glassroofs cos they give more,light to interiors, not only that they ad another dimension to a lobby for instance. This one is a landmark it's Frank Lloyd Wright's capolavore, a state of the art piece his famous nyc guggenheim museum. #glassroof

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
