In a different way

Serkan Cura is a turkish fashion designer that has been graduated from the Royal Academy of Antwerp in 2007.
He presented his Haute Couture Collection at the grand opening for the new outpost of RA botique in Paris.
RA is a beautiful concept store that was first opened in Antwerp thanks to the creative minds of  Anna Kushnerova and Romain Brau who, don't need to say, both studied fashion design at the above mentioned academy.

The intention of the two RA owners was to present HC in different way, off the usual catwalks:

And this is a pic of RA Antwerp that  i took on a recent trip to Belgium, well it's a bad one that i took with my iPhone....



Haute Couture

The style of Amy Winehouse has been the inspiration to Jean Paul Gaultier for his S/S 12 Haute Couture Collection shown in Paris few days ago.

The iconic hair do has been declined in different colors and the make up was focused on the heavy black eyeliner that Amy used to wear

The outfits were named after her songs titles and a band of four guys sang her songs at the end of the show.

The unfogettable Amy with her " bad girl-50s rock style" was already a muse for Karl Lagerfeld that wanted her singing at his after show parties and she has been copied by hundreds of girls around the world.

We miss you Amy!!!

Back with news

It is nice to be finally  back to my blog after a while and it is even nicer to be back with what i consider a good news.

The good  news is "UNO" the SS/12 collection by the talented italian designer Lucio Vanotti.
Lucio is based in Milan and he is one of my favourite guy there.
I love his style: minimal with a twist

He designs clothes that are never out of time, you could wear his pieces one season after another and never get tired of them

He pays high attention to materials and takes good care about details that make the difference

He designs for both men and women, creating an imagine which is unique and contemporary

The video for "UNO" is a real pleasure for the eyes
