Dries Van Noten Retrospective

Dries Van Noten Inspirations expo The Musée des Arts Décoratifs often has fashion exhibits that are of the utmost quality. I have seen a few there, and most recently the Dries Van Noten Inspirations retrospective of his fashion design career so far. If you do attend this exhibit, may I suggest reading Dana Thomas’ portrait of the Belgian deisgner, in the Wall Street Journal first to give yourself an idea of where this artist and his style of working comes from. Thomas’ article describes an independant and hard working man who cares for every little detail of his company. He refuses to sell his company to the large groups, is not on the stock market and insists on only creating two collections a year for men and for women. This allows him more time for the creative process which is the part that he most enjoys (per Thomas’ article). An inspired designer who prefers the thrill of designing for his own brand, than the call of the wealth from the « fashion industry ». He is one of the few remaining artists who is still able to remain self sustaining and entirely inspired. Read more →

I LOVE PARIS IN APRIL

Style Star : Cara Delevingne

This little lady is taking the glossy pages, the runways and social media by storm, and is well on her way to becoming the next Kate Moss.

She has the ability to incarnate any different type of woman for the fashion brands. Whether it’s rock n’ roll, sweet and sexy or classic chic Cara has a chameleon-like way of changing her aura to fit the role she’s in. She owns the look, regardless if its a red carpet event, a lingerie ad campaign or her own life.

Trying On Some Trends

Trying On Some Trends
Fashion comes and goes, and then comes back again… I tend to stick to basics. And then get an occasional fun, frilly or funky item. ISn’t that what they told us about how French women dress? But I thought it would be fun to test out a few trends, and what better what better way to do so than on my Polyvore board. Read more →

New Year’s Poem with Love!

Happy New Year!
I hope you sparkle, I
hope you have fun,
I hope your glass is raised with friends
and I hope when it’s done,
someone has kissed you
and wished you
the warmest of cheers,
because you all deserve the bestest,
of bestest,
most fabulous
new years!
With love, from Paris
~Melissa

Champagne party in Paris!

I love champagne parties, especially the ones that happen for really no reason in particular….

A little dress up, a little glam, a handful of friends, bottles popping and people dancing…. Life can be oh so effervescent!

Cheers! Santé!

Weather, leather and light

Deep into Fall, It is time to contemplate cozy clothes and heart-warming home decor. I am prepping my lists for the Thanksgiving meal I will be giving for Chéri and his family (which have now become mine).

I fill the apartment with the delightful scent of citrus, apples and cinnamon, and I’m searching Pinterest for DIY garlands to garnish the mantle…

I think a nice Sunday walk at the Bois de Boulogne is in order….

How do you frolic this Fall?

Pink and black is the new Paris.

Hexa by Kuho – Paris Fashion Week SS14

Another fashion week whizzed by before I had time to catch my breath.

I didn’t have the time or energy to get to a lot of shows this season, but I did get to see Hexa by Kuho again, and snagged an interview with the designer afterwards, thanks to my friend Ko Kok who is an all-things-camera man (photography, video etc…).

Highlights from the show were : Read more →
