Need a Fashion Fix?

Here is a small selection of my last visit to the press days, where as always it is a pleasure to meet with the press office teams, discovering the new collections. And guess what? The spring-summer 2015 will definitely be colorful or won’t be!

Let’s start with the beautiful yellow tuxedo jacket and trousers of Zadig & Voltaire (picture above)! Their catalog for next season is great (on last picture, the cover).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, the brand’s rock spirit associated with a breath of fresh air! Kudos for the shawl! No. 1, beautiful Wouters & Hendrix big silver necklaces to match with very thin golden chains, or/and rings and bracelets.

No. 4: the talented nail artist, Elfi De Bruyn, applied Pronails polish on my nails at the Swatch opening store. My first time with sparkles on nails, lol! The bracelet is from the French brand Luz.

At Longchamp, I keep the rock spirit 

with the stunning Pliage Héritage Luxe (picture below). Yes, elected by my humble me-myself-and-I (lol): “Object of Desire” for next season! Another favorite: the Madballs Pliage by Jeremy Scott for Longchamp this winter 2014.

If you like the Pliage, over 30 million bags sold worldwide, I recommend you the little book “Le Pliage by Longchamp” of Laure Verchère (Assouline).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, bicolor sandals/espadrilles and handbag, Longchamp. No. 1, at the Swatch event, I discovered this new natural drink (blackcurrant juice I guess?) and the latest Swatch collection.

Don’t worry, I will complete with boards on my Pinterest this small preview of spring-summer 2015 upcoming trendsI didn’t have time to go to all press offices where I was invited (sorry!), because the same day in the morning, I had a recruitment test.

Tokyo, Japan: Shopping and Architecture in Roppongi

TOKYO CITY GUIDE: DISTRICT / ROPPONGI

The refined Tokyo Midtown 

Incredible blue sky! I get in one of the six buildings of Tokyo Midtown, hosting the Suntory Museum of Art.

A luxury mall. Tasteful minimalist decoration, with staright light wooden and picture windows with a view to the small park. Zen feeling in the cosy atmosphere. 

Comfortable leather sofas to relax between two shops (exhausting shopping, lol!). Check out the high end multibrands Restir and The Cover Nippon for refined arts and crafts: beautiful fabrics for home, ceramics and traditional bags.

For ceramics, I also recommend Asakusa small shops (a traditional district of Tokyo).

At the food level, stop at Toraya for the incredible look of the Japanese pastries (on the picture above)! I was so happy to find “my” Dean & Deluca too, soulful Soho! Could you believe it?

Then I sat in the small park under the sun. Lazy, lazy. Maybe tomorrow I’ll visit the Issey Miyake and Tadeo Ando‘s 21_21 Design Sight: “The first center in Japan dedicated to Design, where the creation process will be exhibited” (Issey Miyake).

The National Art Center Tokyo

Now I head to this amazing Museum with a glass wave front designed by the famous architect Kisho Kurukawa, located five minutes walk from Tokyo Midtown. 

Relaxing bright inside, thanks to the wooden in this all glass and concrete architecture. And big surprise: the two huge concrete cones in the hall! Finally I’ve more enjoyed these cones than the beautiful front!

At the Museum shop, I found an eclectic selection of art books and various items. My fav: some sushi USB keys and traditional bags of a young fashion designer.

After four hours in the big exhibitions halls, I need fresh air, greenery and blue sky (again!), let’s move back to Tokyo Midtown. Yes, the sky is so blue!
