Le Chant Des Sirènes


"I will not let thee go save thou makest me a promise that whenever I call thee, thou wilt come and sing to me, for the fish delight to listen to the song of the Sea-folk, and so shall my nets be full." The Fisherman and his Soul, from a House of Pomegranates. Oscar Wilde.


Vogue-Paris dedicates its best issue in months to the allure of French women. In my favourite editorial, Carine Roitfeld, displays once again her savoir-faire and delight us with the contradiction between tradition and modernity.


She mixed labels like Comme des Garçons or Prada with typical headdresses from Alsace or Champagne. Pure eye candy.

Lara Stone is looking fierce! And you have to hand it to Roitfeld for combining designers. Like Karl once said "Life is not a fashion show, and I find a total designer look boring.”
