dear all

..i want to thank the academy, my mom, my brother and all my beloved friends that helped me go through this hectic week and complete the last shooting. preparing the first spring fashion editorial for the new season is extremely exciting, if the delays/misunderstandings/accidents don’t stand in your way. so many things went wrong that i’d almost started to believe in the zodiac and the bad luck of Mercury being retrograde. but i personally kept my eyes on the Prada ss2011 platforms and went through it, successfully i hope. my mind is like pulp and my body hurts but as far as i can tell the story looks great. more photos to follow in January

Chanel pre-fall 2011

For several years now, Chanel has taken some specialist craftsmen under its wing, protecting and perpetuating their know-how.  Desrues the costume jeweler, Lemarié the feather specialist, Lesage the embroiderer, Massaro the shoe-maker, Michel the milliner, Goossens the goldsmith and Guillet the floral accessory specialist are the seven artisanal ateliers the House purchased in 1997.
Back in 2002, Karl Lagerfeld dedicated an annual collection to them, whilst also celebrating a city that is part of the House’s history. This year for the ninth occasion the destination was Byzantium, with a “Paris Byzance” collection, in keeping with the opening of a second Chanel boutique in Istanbul.

In a decor worthy of an Ottoman Palace, Karl Lagerfeld revisited the bold colors and the antique golds of enamels and icons, with midnight and mineral blues, deep purples, violets and greens.

The Byzantine signature is clearly stated in tweeds interwoven with gold, satin leather, velvet, cashmere, chiffon, lace and tulle. It influences the tablions, the braids and the embroidery. The buttons are jewelled stones while the arabesque appliqués are trimmed with gold. The weave is coarse yet sophisticated, dazzling like a mosaic.

The Byzantine  splendor reflects on the belts and jewelry, adorned with square glass beads, filigree gilt metal, enameling and beads, for a modern-day Theodora. The collection was fascinating for being both comfortable and luxurious, something that was also reflecting on the shoes: sparkling flat sandals with arabesque cut-outs alternated with thigh-high boots sprinkled with glass beads.

-1 °C shopping

yesterday we all suddenly woke up to winter time as if through a time tunnel, don’t know where it came from, the weather is total bananas. and during one night we passed from 20 °C to freezing cold. however, even the sudden snow didn’t stop me from following my plans, which included a stop at ‘Yeshop In House’, the store of designer Yiorgos Eleftheriades for a special sales event. a couple of drinks and chatting while trying pieces from his current and previous collections is what i call proper shopping.

my friend bought a wonderful velvet coat and i got myself this

which it may look like a skirt but it’s not

and it may look conservative but it’s not

i tried it on with a divine top and one of my most favourite ever, made of lace and silk, from the latest collection of Filep Motwary

wonderful, isn’t it. happy consumer.
