Eric Forey – Architecture becomes texture

Eric Forey is a photographer, but first of all is an observer. What he creates with his photos is poetry, but also expresses his way of seeing the world and all is around himself, from the architecture to the people. The city is his inspiration, and allows him to portrait it in a way that makes you feel better and leaves you open-mouthed.

What he does with his camera is catching images that almost pop out from the framework itself, and all the richness of the colours fills you.

From his works you can see patterns, drawings, colour blocks, stories…and it is amazing to look at that!

It’s Fashion Weeks Time! – Part III – Milan Fashion Week AW13/14

So here we are…it is time for Milan to show its style. It is amazing to see that every city has its own “personality” that distinguishes one from the other. And in Milan the style is absolutely…Italian! Classy, “rich”, a little bit posh that sometimes flows in a conscious, slightly aggressive femininity . Deep cultural roots are here sometimes really obvious, showing Italy’s internal diversities (Dolce&Gabbana is always the most glaring example). Show off with class then!

One interesting thing: we noticed with pleasure that brogues and Oxford shoes, as well as flatforms, loafers and even trainers are often more considered and used then high heels in this Italian fashion season.

Here our favourite picks.

Art&Fashion: lines, squares, Chanel and Fendi

The Elementarism and Neoplasticism (De Stijl) of Theo van Doesburg, the Suprematism of Kazimir Malevich, the Bauhaus’ style inspired textiles of Anni Albers…the Art of the first half of the 20th Century is seductive and full of power. It is amazing to see how a group of lines and geometric figures can be so fascinating and meaningful, strong enough to create an artistic movement that has changed history by stimulating designers to create the life we ​​are living today.

This kind of Art is still an inspiration for fashion designers: Art gives the input to Fashion to create patterns, prints and shapes that are unique and attractive. The winning combination for the next season.

Inspiration is right here: just open your eyes and have a look around you.

That’s why we love Marni

What can I say? I just like Marni‘s SS13 collection. Big volumes that are far from being heavy, essential shapes, as the colours, strong geometrical/optical patterns…and then the accessories and details…all together to create a collection that makes me almost…emotional (and I rarely am 🙂 ).

Thumbs up for Marni (that makes me look forward the Spring season more than ever!).
