Christian Dior – Couturier du Rêve exhibition

It is starting to become a trend for fashion brands to host exhibitions, as it is an easy way to communicate about the history and identity of the brand. Just to mention a few; Chloé hosted a Guy Bourdin exhibition in their newly renovated Maison Chloé, Hermès dedicated an exhibition for Leila Menchari‘s window displays, Louis Vuitton’s Voulez, Vogues, Voyages exhibition is currently showing in New York and YSL opened not one, but two museums; one in Paris and one in Marrakesh.

Unfortunately most of the exhibitions have been sadly simple, badly curated and very obviously commercial, as advertising often tends to be. When a product is still in the store, it doesn’t belong to museum.

I want to post only things that I support and I can recommend, which is why I post this picture only now when the Dior exhibition has finished; it was exceptionally bad. Poor John Galliano and his legacy was buried under Maria Grazia Chiuri’s feminism t-shirts.

In the picture; Aesop oil free moisturizer, tea tree exfoliator and handcream with my everyday jewellery, N bracelet from Louis Vuitton and the most precious ring, a gift from my boyfriend.

Volez, Voguez, Voyages Exhibition

PARIS TIPS – Short trip to Louis Vuitton’s history in the form of an exhibition is built to Grand Palais. The exhibition is showing some old trunks from the beginning, mixing with bags from more resent collections and showing even some Nicolas Ghesquiere designs from the latest collection (that you can actually go to see in the store right now and, well, buy). From my point of view way too commercial, but a nice way to spend an evening, especially when the entrance is free. And ask anything from the guides, they’ll give you interesting fun-facts. Volez Voguez Voyagez jusqu’à 21 Février 2016, Grand Palais 3 Avenue du Général Eisenhower, 75008 Paris

And the picture above is shot by same photographers who shot the Givenchy Pre-Fall campaign, Max and Patric. This picture is by far my favourite one. Rainy Paris really makes you dream about the sun.

perfume

Usually I’m not jewelry person, but the pieces I own have a lot of meaning behind. And I don’t mind when my meaningful jewelry look like this. And for the perfume, I’m still not sure if I like it or not, I’m not a perfume person either. But still I carry these with me daily. Eau de Perfume from Chloé, Bracelet Louis Vuitton.

TRENDSPOTTING – Eyes to the future for a second. Are hotpants making a comeback next spring? At least according to Raf Simons and Nicolas Ghesquiere. And do we like these? My vote goes to Louis Vuitton girl! Hotpants paired with loose shirt that covers the upper body, works surprisingly well. But let’s face it, only if you have legs for it.
