Yves Saint Laurent – A Visionary

Chris sends love from Brussels:

“The Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation exceptionally presents at the ING Cultural Centre, at Place Royale in Brussels, creations from the Yves Saint Laurent collection, a major part on display for the first time, in a solo exhibition devoted to the Parisian fashion designer.
Women’s desire, masculin-feminin, the shock of colours, the paper fashion house, the heart, jewelry, drawings and sketches come together to reveal the alchemy of the Saint Laurent style
…and oh the 1965 bride standing there, most highly protected from evil photo shooting…

Well this is what came out by poor hidden camera and several warnings from security guards”.

Prada for The Great Gatsby

Miuccia Prada has collaborated with Baz Luhrmann and legendary costume designer Catherine Martin to create a bespoke collection of over 40 unique Miu Miu and Prada cocktail and evening dresses for the move “The Great Gatsby”, inspired by selected runway looks from the last 20 years.

Here are the first sketches that Prada just released.

MIU MIU_THE GREAT GATSBY_4 

Knee-length dress in octane-coloured tulle lined in matching silk cady. In the front, tulle is embroidered  with a precious ramage pattern in crystal-coloured Swarovski. The dress’s cuts are highlighted by subtle contrasting details in black silk.

PRADA_THE GREAT GATSBY_23 


Orange organza dress enriched with plastic fish scale-like sequin embroidery. Inspired by the Prada  Fall/Winter 2011 collection

PRADA_THE GREAT GATSBY_20

Radzmire dress with bustier embroidered with pearls, stones and sequin fringes. Inspired by a revisited silhouette of the 1920s, it is made contemporary by the use of modern fabrics and embroideries of the 1950s.

PRADA_THE GREAT GATSBY_16

Multi-striped sequins dress with a plastic and trimmings embroidery at the bottom. Inspired by the
Prada Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

the deadalive

Vampires, dead people, black brides and skeleton clowns:

the best Halloweeners in town gathered for one night in a private party with blood and tears. The preparation was the ultimate fun-part,

trusted on the magic hands of make up artist Athanasia Mimitou (amimitouΑΤgmailDOTcom),

whose name you should remember for she’s about to conquer Athens’ beauty scene.





juliet

last but not least, a feature entirely dedicated to Juliet (dancer Maria Kousouni Fika), from Romeo & Juliet ballet we attended with Christos Alexandropoulos, and a closer look to her costumes- delicate and fragile as Juliet would be.
