Olympia Le Tan has always some beautiful books/bags that I love and covet so much! But this new collection is beyond amazing! It based on famous paintings, I especially love love LOVE that Manet one, so incredible! I want it so bad! but let’s face it way out of my price point… sad sniff moment… It’s beautiful and I am totally lusting over them both.. and I wanted to share it here on the blog because it just so beautiful, (ok used that word a lot!) and I can stare at them for a while for sure. I think even if I would have one I would be too scared to use it! oups… too pretty to wear it out!
For the first time I started writing a post in Portuguese instead of starting with English. that’s a good sign… I have vanished these last fews days because living this totally Brazilian experience, I got unfortunately sick the night before traveling to Sao Paulo. I got the Zika virus. I had to cancel my trip to Sao Paulo, I made me very sad and upset.
It got bad and gave me a lot of anxiety because I do not have much knowledge with these tropical diseases, (I do not wish this knowledge to anyone …) and being without health insurance in this country and staying / living at a “friends” house complicates the situation further . You get in a tricky situation, and do not know what to do, it was horrible beyond all the symptoms that the Zika virus gives you …
Well the good side was that actually I got out pretty well, and slept a lot! And since then I’m getting better, today I was almost normal … and it was the first time I left the flat and went to the beach a little, the sky was so beautiful, the clouds were just sublime with wonderful colours. Even with my super basic camera from my phone I managed to capture this beauty.
This is the magic with this city, you can show up at the beach and forget everything and you are there living breathing this moment. Today I really felt at home in this town, and soon when I will be able to move to a place I can call mine without being at “friends” house I’ll start to feel more at home and start this new life here.
There is still a few more shows from Paris fashion week that I want to share and talk about especially this one.
This season we were all waiting for Balenciaga new head designer Demna Gvasalia to see what was to come.
His inspiration for the collection was as he says “Cristóbal was about the tailoring. I wanted a new way of finding that elegance for today, in a 360-degree way.”
So a very clinical approach with a granny touch on the prints side, a sporty feel and some denuded shoulders, all mixed up it creates some unexpected looks. I did love some of the details, others I didn’t like as much too street like for me, but all in all in interesting approach to what can be Balenciaga (still prefer the old original, Cristóbal though…).
