Katherine Kwei??
Is this name familiar to you? Probably not yet, and yet it's a safe bet that the creations of this young 34-year-old "Hongongese" will invade our continent. Real little works of art, his marvelous bags forged in noble skins, brilliantly combine modernity and Chinese tradition.
This creative "artist" began her career in public relations for Louis Vuitton China, then very recently, in 2007, she launched her own collection. The prices of these little jewels oscillate between 645 and 1,825 $...a little expensive, but contemplating its models, we agree to proclaim that such luxury is priceless!

Haute couture from every angle....

Les Haute Couture fashion shows presented in recent days are, as always, a real hymn to the quintessence of toilets.
Alchemy of know-how, lush fabrics, magical embroidery... the garment is meant to be adornment... It is the air and the art of perfection.

But what is Haute Couture? Legally protected name and “which can only be claimed by companies appearing on the list drawn up each year by a commission sitting at the Ministry of Industry”, we indicate to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Its origin goes back to Charles Frédéric Worth who created, in 1858, at 7 rue de la Paix, in Paris, the first true haute couture house, creating original models for particular clients.

"Haute couture are secrets whispered from generation to generation...", has so deliciously defined Yves Saint Laurent.

It all starts with a sketch, illustrating a silhouette of a princess, then all the know-how and craftsmanship takes over to make the sketch become reality. Embroiderers, milliners, feather workers will work hours and hours to bring the fabric to life. Then come the multiple fittings, to correct some "imperfections" in order to finalize the exceptional toilet intended for exceptional customers.
Then it's time for the parades, the scene of real works of art in movement....the magic transports us...a few photos stolen from the last parades....illustrate this magic linked to know-how and all the elegance of Haute Couture....

Dior sees red...

 au pays de la censure et de la dictature Dior voit rouge...

When the quintessence of elegance and luxury meets the creativity of Chinese artists... It's surprising, unexpected, when you know that not so long ago, in the country of censorship and dictatorship, the uniform was imposed on the Chinese, luxury was considered a real demon, as for artists, their creativity was flouted or subjugated to themes imposed by the regime.

Today, a little wind of freedom seems to be blowing...

This is how twenty members of the Chinese avant-garde are exhibiting works inspired by the Dior fashion house in China's first private center for contemporary art, in Beijing. I know, everyone talks about it, I'm not telling you anything, but I think we have to talk about it to encourage these cultural and artistic experiences, whose political dimension is encouraging. This is how mentalities move forward.

Some photos of this exhibition, Chinese contemporary art gives us beautiful creations, original and very avant-garde... some must be turning in their graves, it's clear... When will the experience with the young scene Russian art.

What more?? We owe these radiators to the designer Palomba Serafini manufactured by Tubes.

All in poetry...

cette rencontre originale entre la mode et l Tout en poésie...
cette rencontre originale entre la mode et l Tout en poésie...

On February 5, in his store " Epicenter" of Soho in New York , the famous Italian brand, Prada , presented the premiere of "Trembled Blossoms", a 3D animated film, directed by artist James Luna, inspired by the drawings of James Jean , young illustrator, already known at PRADA , for designing the "wallpapers" for their latest advertising campaign.

In a lush Eden, a young woman "Eve-cyborg" evolves gracefully and sensually, along the way she meets strange creatures, who will transform her into a total Prada look... all to the rhythm of delicious music.
