Miscellaneaous inspiration

Cool yet low-key, glamorous yet effortless, bohemian yet Parisian.
So natural and desirable.

Picture perfect anglophile

Love a good bit o' patriotism, me.
That's why I leave the country at any damned opportunity!
Paha, only joking, I love England, but sometimes you need some sun, no?!

Au revoir mes belles

Guess Fall Ad campaign with
Elka Hosk & Alyssa Miller
I'm off to the sunny lands of Lanzarote for a fortnight or so of sport, spas and sunbathing...
I've scheduled some crackers for you though while I'm gone, though.
So... enjoy, and leave me lots of lovely comments to return to!

Listen to your desires, fly to the moon.

That is what it reads on the Isabel Marant jewellry case.
Too bad if i was to follow this advice, I'd have racked up a rather large debt by now!
Just read the interview in Elle UK's September issue with Marant - that woman is truly an inspiration.
"Her androgynous frame is barely covered by a faded black vest, loosely draped, and cut-off denim shorts so abbreviated that the pockets hang beneath their fraying hem. Her feet are bare. Her hair is pulled into a careless bun and she's not wearing any make-up. She's beautiful in that particularly French way, a little undone..."

"It's a summer afternoon in Paris and Isabel Marant's studio, hidden away along a small passage in the 11th arondissement, is bright and white: sun pouring through the glass skylights..."
"At a scarred wooden table in an area set aside for the kitchen, Marant helps herself to lunch from a slection of mismatched plates. Cold meats, green salad, bread. A cigarette is disregarded in a saucer. Coke bubbles in a glass. She has thrown on a plaid linen shirt, pale pink, the same colour a the hydrangea blossoms withering in a vase on top of the fridge."

"The KEYWORDS for me are always discretion, style and ATTITUDE"
