Each year it is the same, each year we say, i won't wear this Trend, NEVER !!!
I guess 90% of us said that about skinny jeans. Even those of us with a body like Kate Moss felt too fat to wear them. A few years later I don't know one girl who doesn't own a pair.
This year I told myself, I will not wear tight boots. Just by hearing the words, TIGHT BOOTS, I would imagine myself as a prostitute on the streets of Paris.But well..I convinced myself, Brigitte Bardot wore them so why not?! it's all glamour after all... ;)
Every times i hear this song i wish myself I could move my body in a dirty way like a raggadancehall girl...
Five Years afer working with M.I.A for the Piracy Funds Terrorism mix is Diplo back with a new album called Guns don't kill people but lazers do ( Major Lazer ) and even if you don't like dancehall you won't avoid this sound because it's played everywhere...
In french people would have say it's raining like a pissing cow ! ( il pleut comme une vache qui pisse ).
Melt closed his door on Friday or well on Saturday at 3am because of the Storm. Everybody had to go back to the tent, wet til the underwear ( because of the rain !!! ). For my part I had the chance that the tent was still uprighted and slep well even if i almost slep on the wet grass because didn't have this strange Yoga carpet that you put on the floor of the tent. Yes it could have been an horror trip to Melt. I don't even bother to mention how i felt with my wet curly hair when i woke up.
But thanx God, i had my hair straightener with me ( it may sounds superficial but Melt is also a Fashion festival, you have to look good , just read on the blogs, weeks before, the outfit selection for the Melt : Bikers boots or wellington boots ? :D )
.... and thanx god it stopped raining on Saturday !
We don't need to mention the perfomances of Bloc Party, Phoenix, The whitest Boy Alive and Paul Kalkbrenner, you know them all but shame on you if you don't know Bodi Bill, amazing babys and Le cops mince de Francoise.
An hommage to the cinema ( Jean Paul Gaulthier ), Coco Chanel ( Chanel ), the Dior girl, and the last White Chanel's Collection ( Eli Saab ) and a goodbye to Christian Lacroix, thanx the financial crisis.
JEAN PAUL GAUTHIER- Do you recognize the heroines of these films ?
Fashion Week in Berlin and one question. The same one, again and again...Is Berlin a fashion City like Paris, Milan, NY or London ? It is enough creativity in his City. So "chuuutt" and just have a look
It looks like we're going on a trip, maybe to India ? Did Donatella ( Versace ) and Neil Barrett inspired themselves for some pieces of their collection from an Indian Costum called "Kurta Churidar", a long shirt that they wear on a pants ? Or is it an hommage to the Yves Saint Laurent Safari style ? It's anyway a lot of beige and kaki. John Richmond: A collection for the strong guys ? Kaki and military prints. But also a lot of red and pink. 80's are fashion ? Sequins ! But the 90's too. So much white ! So we already know what the trends for the next summer are... + Don't forget to pull your pants up to your ankle and don't throw away your jean with an hole on it.
