Hubert de Givenchy est mort, Givenchy ne devient plus qu'un nom de luxe sans âme ...

Hubert de Givenchy le couturier et sa muse, l'actrice Audrey Hepburn.

Un des derniers grands couturiers Hubert de Givenchy, disparaît. RIP.
Ma marraine collabora au studio pendant des années, (les grandes périodes de la haute couture se situent entre 1930-40 et 1950-80 mais aussi la période sombre de la 2WWD guerre apporta son lot de talent) elle voyageait avec Hubert à Rome et rencontrait fréquemment Audrey Hepburn qui avait épousé un docteur en médecine romain.
Dans quelques années la génération de ceux qui dans un premier temps ont donné au mot couture un sens disparaîtront et ils laisseront une génération sans grand talent en comparaison mais faisant des chiffres d'affaires astronomiques, là est la confusion des genres. Oh j'ai pas de mot, la postérité de ces talentueux artistes quelque part se verra remplacée par de simples stylistes pas des couturiers. Review for Jeffrey Felner, on the photo Hubert de Givenchy grand amateur d'art devant son Picasso, il avait de très belles maisons

Hubert de Givenchy se plaignait d'être seul en quelque sorte dans son hôtel de 35 pièces situé rive gauche en très "cour et jardin".

Sis, rue des Saints Pères il l'a vendu à l'homme d'affaire Bernard Tapie qui le quittera quelques années plus tard pris dans la tourmente financière de la fin de son empire factice bâti de toute pièce par la politique des années 80.

L'ancienne demeure de Hubert de Givenchy serait estimée aujourd'hui à environ 70.OOO.OOO,00€

dont seulement 70% seraient détenus par Bernard Tapie ou ses sociétés.

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.

ART DECO CRAVE / artist Serge Lutens

Icon model Weingarten has impersonated the ideal muse to exceptionally talented makeup artist Serge Lutens. They both enrolled on a prolific and creative journey for cosmetics prime Japan brand Shiseido.
I was lucky to dress Weingarten long time after I discovered the fascinating and rapture of Lutens photigraphies.

  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.

NB the only faux-pas to me is the too big too much pink and green flower bouquets on the tables, which I found a bit "japanese girlie" for the Donalds. rmf

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

a SHELFIE is a selfie but showing bookshelves in lieu of portrait

I always loved books, book covers and study rooms even bookstores and public libraries. Books delivered me from a normal upper-middle class / bourgeois entourage type of life as I was a toddler and wide-opened the doors of mystery of an other kind of life.

Now the shelfie is a beautiful idea to get people to like books and bookshelves

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

as you know coffee is an essential item in the day of an Italian. My last acquisition is a dream glass coffee maker, I chose Hario, the Japan maker for the quality of the glass. I drink freshly brew bio Popayán coffee bean, soft, so lightly acid you won't feel it, clear but fruitful in flavor. #popayàn, #hario #coffeeglassmaker

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.

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
