Cinema & Fashion | Thomas Crown Affair (1999)

I happen to catch "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1999) on TV yesterday night and couldn't help but notice the fantastic Celine wardrobe on Rene Russo. Back in the days when Michael Kors was still the creative director of Celine and so happen to be Rene's friend. The colours and the monochromatic outfits are so up to date that I couldn't help but pulling together some stills from the movie with pieces from the A/W 2014 collections and creating three montages.

CV for a Bidonville


During this week I was working non-stop in a week-long workshop with PEROU, and, after the final presentation yesterday, I rushed to get to the airport and catch my flight to Porto (glad that's all over now). PEROU - Pôle D'Exploration Des Ressources Urbaines, is an organisation in Paris that focuses on creating better living conditions and resources for people in precarious situations, like the Romanian refugees that live in La Folie, a bidonville (slum) right outside of Paris in the small town of Grigny.
I still have to take photos of the final results from the workshop and write about the whole process, but for now I'll just post some photos from the first day in the bidonville, where we interviewed some families about their difficulties in getting a stable job in France, or getting a job at all.

Bijorhca 14'


Featured jewellery by Leonor Soares Carneiro.

About two weeks ago I had a chance to visit Bijorhca. It's 4 day fine&fashion jewellery show here in Paris featuring designers and collectives from all over the world. I attended the event mainly because my very talented cousin had a few pieces exhibited there but also to snatch from an infinity of designer business cards available in every display space for my card collection.
