Tea compliments blog writing. It’s a happy zone to enter with my huge mug of tea, macbook and headphones. Going through the next season’s collection, adoring the ladylike dressing sights. Some dresses must come accompanied with a saucer pan and cup with brewing tea. Japanese tea is what I fancy right now. Mint is an all time favourite. Would love to try matcha someday.
Designers Costello Tagliapietra collection is something wouldn’t mind wearing everyday of summer. Fun but with a somber constraint. Comfortable but not simple. This long dress is to be worn for a tea meeting in the city. Dolce & Gabbana the kings of maximalist style continued their vacation in Sicily. Pour me a hot cup of darjeeling and sit me down next to Domenico and Stefano -an item off the bucket list right there. Tomas Maier at Bottega has been romanticizing the brand by adding prints, textures, tea stained colors. This woman will never need to use a tea bag. Luxuriously happy with her loose tea leaves.
Michele Obama is another woman I really like. She gave new meaning to the word ‘First Lady’ as not just a man’s wife but a leading woman.
Recently held Spring Summer 2013 shows in NY and London made me think of some trend stories I wanted to play around with on Picassa. So here is #1: Water color –
“The collection stands illuminated at dusk against some of the most celebrated landscapes in the designer’s native Paris. The shoes and bags become part of these historical French monuments, at home in the city that has housed the brand for 20 years. “
|Pont Alexandre III bridge that spans the river Seine regarded as the most ornate bridge in Paris decorated with Loubi pumps|
|The gardens of Trocadero on the site of Palace of Chaillot decorated with new collection of tie-up boots and booties. Can you spot the Farida Paris tote?|
|Decorating the great bridges of the city such as the Pont Des Arts where the shoes entertain strolling couples with an eccentric street art exhibit.|
|Shooting arcs of water into the fountain at the Place de la Concorde, a monument dedicated to the seas, where the shoes weave themselves in amongst naiads holding fish.|
|My favorite shot – Loubis sitting eerily with the gargoyles at the top of the Notre Dame over looking the sun setting across the vista.|
Christian Louboutin unofficial ambassador, burlesque dancer and all around wonder woman Dita Von Teese hologram for a launch earlier this year is another larger than life positioning of the Louboutin heels. Dita is as much a wonder than these monuments I think.
