Testosterone

IMG_00006_LG

Some things in life, like maths and physics, are always meant to be complicated. But there are some other things that even if you do want to understand, you just can’t. Men are just one of them.

How is a woman supposed to act in the post-Carrie Bradshaw era, when things seem to be less romantic and more casual? When did our list of the perfect man become a single word and the handsome, polite prince became just any guy who is not a total jerk? We might only be in our twenties, but my friends and I could not help it but question our love life these days.

Somewhere between our first job applications, our university courses and our dreams of travelling the world, love is totally forgotten. You have to care too much about how you look, how to be the best in what you do, how to fulfil your ambitions, that there’s simply no time left for anything else. We have been constantly told that in life you can’t have everything. So why a 20something woman obsess about a guy more than a career and a Dior bag?  Maybe one day the right one will be there. Until then, there’s always Dior.

Parisian chic

Gossip Girl Paris 1

As we all know ( or at least should know) the fashion month just ended with the last fashion week being that of Paris. Paris is one of my favourite cities around the world  and i can tell you two things about it. First of all, it is undeniably fabulous. Second, I can’t wait to go there again. You see the thing with Paris is that wherever you look there it is, a place that an interesting story may have taken place. Whether you are exploring the Marais, having a coffee in Montmartre, walking by the Seine or shopping at the exquisite boutiques of Champ Elysees, Paris will never let you down. Some days i wake up feeling very Parisian for some reason. I wear my most romantic black outfits, hold my Givenchy clutch and listen to Pink Martini and Edith Piaf. “Parisian Chic: A Style Guide” by the style icon Ines de la Fressange is actually one of my favourite reads of all time.  I have always admired her effortless sense of style, the same sense that other notable French fashion legends such as Carine Roitfeld and Emanuelle Alt share. There are lots of things about Paris that inspire me and I’ll be sharing some with you. I wake up feeling Parisian after all. Disclaimer: At times I wake up feeling Milanese, Londoner, Roman or Athenian. God i love Europe**

**Unless you’re intending to get me to New York, then ill be changing my plans

We will always have Paris(fashion week) SS13 edition

New York was interesting.London was refreshing. Milan was classic. But Paris, Paris was amazing. The last one of the fashion weeks, Paris fashion week must have been the best. So many historic fashion houses revealed their collections for next season, and most of them were breathtaking. My favourite has to be SAINT LAURENT PARIS, where Hedi Slimane literary read my mind and transformed it in a collection. Others were  some of my all time favourites like Valentino, Chloe,Givenchy and Dior. September has been a tough month for the fashion world and now -for the most of us- its time for some relaxing in a spa or a detoxing diet. For me though, its time for more work, but the kind of work that makes your dreams come true, one step at a time. Last but not least, you should know next seasons trends. Tailored blazers , ruffles, clean lines and above all luxury.The pelum trend might stay strong as well. Its time again to play with all the colors, the materials, the shapes. But even though the new fashion is amazing, one must never forget to have a personal style. Like our great teacher Coco said “fashion passes, style remains”.

Η Νέα Υόρκη ήταν ενδιαφέρουσα. Το Λονδίνο ήταν αναζωογονητικό. Το Μιλάνο ήταν κλασσικό. Αλλά το Παρίσι, το Παρίσι ήταν υπέροχο.Η τελευταία από τις εβδομάδες μόδας,  η εβδομάδα μόδας του Παρισιού, πρέπει να ήταν η καλύτερη. Τόσοι πολλοί ιστορικοί οίκοι παρουσίασαν τις συλλογές τούς για την επόμενη σεζόν και οι περισσότερες ήταν καταπληκτικές. Η αγαπημένη μου   μάλλον ήταν αυτή που δημιούργησε ο Hedi Slimane για τον ανανεωμένο  οίκο SAINT LAURENT PARIS. Ο Hedi πρέπει πραγματικά να διάβασε το μυαλό μου και να το μεταμόρφωσε σε κολεξιόν, γιατί αλλιώς δεν εξηγείται. Άλλοι αγαπημένοι περιλαμβάνουν τους κλασσικούς μου όπως οι Valentino, Chloe,Givenchy και Dior. Ο Σεπτέμβριος ήταν ένας δύσκολος μήνας για το κόσμο της μόδας και τώρα είναι καιρός-για τους περισσότερους από εμάς- να χαλαρώσουμε σε κάποιο σπα ή να κάνουμε μια αντιοξειδωτική δίαιτα . Για εμένα παρόλα αυτά είναι καιρός για ακόμη περισσότερη δουλειά, εκείνου τύπου όμως που σε οδηγεί στα όνειρα σου, ένα βήμα κάθε φορά. Τελευταίο μα καθόλου ασήμαντο , θα πρέπει να μάθετε τα trends για την επόμενη σεζόν. Κουστούμια, βολάν,καθαρές γραμμές και πάνω από όλα πολυτέλεια . Το trend του peplum αναμένεται να συνεχιστεί επίσης. Ήρθε η ώρα λοιπών να παίξουμε ξανά με τα χρώματα, τα υλικά, τις γραμμές. Μα όσο υπέροχη και αν είναι η καινούργια μόδα, κανείς δεν πρέπει να ξεχνάει να  έχει και ένα δικό του, προσωπικό στυλ. Όπως είπε και η μεγάλη μας δασκάλα Coco ” Η μόδα περνάει , το στυλ παραμένει”
