So the blog wasn’t working for a while and as my dear Sebastien is not at hands any longer I didn’t know what to do, but curiously all that time I really wanted to update and share things on blog but couldn’t… So without further due, I am posting this very late post on the Louis Vuitton mad weekend that happened weeks ago here in Rio.
This past weekend Rio was all the rage, as all the fashion “à la mode” people were gracing their presence for the up coming resort show of Louis Vuitton. It was of course all over instagram. and were seen going in a van from all the best spots in town. The Fasano, MAC de Niteroi, the parque Lage, and Santa Tereza. At first of course I got sucked in… but it made me think of how overrated and weird fashion is becoming.
Now it’s all about the being in latest most exotic place you can get your hands on, to show case your new resort (exclusive ou trier sur les volets…) collection. At the expanse of the real people living here, in that exotic place. Come Monday they all gone. Chanel was Cuba, Louis Vuitton is Rio, and then Dior is the Blenheim Palace (Churchill’s family own palace) in England. I mean it looks like such a circus, and then it’s all those non stop photos, of all those happy elected, always the same crowd gushing on how amazing is everything… and us left to dribble? I mean it’s such far cry from reality of real life… I don’t know I might got an overdose of it all….
After all that renting the collection itself is wonderfully modern, and strong. I love the bag that is a boom box and that actually plays music! The backdrop is gorgeous that is given, the clothes are quite cool and edgy, sporty vibes all around. I love the actual collection but all this commotion around is unnecessary.

So I know I have neglected you my little blog, and gone and done better things, like well moving finally! I am officially living In Rio de Janeiro and soon or maybe one day can call myself a Carioca! Well I will always be La Carioca! There is so much I wanted to share on here but time didn’t permit.
So getting back into the swing of things, I start with the gorgeous collection of Chanel in Cuba of all places! A wonderful so wearable summer happy collection! I love the pink car prints, the long floaty skirts, the hats, the colours, the length and the easiness of the looks, the girls seem so happy, light, and easygoing…
A the end Everyone breaks out into a dancing parade and even Karl joins in!

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…).
