Sonia Rykiel Pave Bag - Celebrating 50 years of the house Sonia built!

SONIA RYKIEL PAVE BAG - CELEBRATING THE BRANDS 50 YEARS IN FAHSION - $990.00 IN A RANGE OF COLORS - CLICK IMAGE TO SHOP BARNEYSAt a moment in fashion when more is more is more... the latest handbag by the house of Sonia Rykiel is a relief.. to both the eye.. and the wallet.  The Pave (cobblestone) bag is shaped like the stones it's named after.  THE LATE, GREAT SONIA RYKIEL - LEFT US IN 2016 AT THE AGE OF 86Meant as an homage to 1968 and the protests and rallies in France, and specifically Paris,  against President Charles de Gaulle.   SONIA RYKIEL PAVE HANDBAG - $990.00Massive street protests by the university students (a stone' throw from Rykiel's boutique) created the change in public sentiment that led to De Gaulle resigning soon after!

It is to that backdrop that designer Sonia Rykiel opened her left bank boutique.  A cultural and sexual revolution were unfolding at one of the most creative times in modern history.  Her boutique was a scene of poets and free thinkers.  Rykiel embodied the "non-fashion" fashion that would make her famous.  Simple, chic style, oh so Parisian, created in luxury fabrics. SONIA RYKIEL HOME COLLECTION - AVAILABLE AT BLOOMINGDALES  The New Pave bag celebrates 50 years of the house.  Sonia died in 2016 at the age of 86, but her legend and creativity lives on with the brand.  Celebrate your independent style, and #RESIST LOGOS this season!!   The bag is unisex, or non-gender specific.  Find them!  BARNEYS has the bags.  Click images to shop there. **If you are really savvy, you might find the version with a guitar strap!**

Worth noting: the brand has a beautiful home collection available at BLOOMINGDALES.  Click images to shop those items.

CAMPAIGN WATCH 4- WINTER WONDERLAND

French luxury house Hermes never ceases to create beautiful ads that are chic and clever at the same time.

The timeless images are visually stunning and memorable.   Never one to follow trends or fads, the Hermes Fall/ Winter 2009 campaign is a perfect example of this mindset.  

What is more classically French than a silk scarf?  The French love silk scarves, and French women have made scarf tying an art form!  The house even produces a booklet to showcase different ways to wear your scarf.   Options are limitless.  Wear them around the neck, the waist, the head, the torso - etc.   Your own sense of style can really shine through when styling a scarf.

Bringing an age old art form to the modern day we live in, Hermes has a state of the art website section dedicated to silk scarves.   You can even browse by your choice of color theme!  Click Hermes-Scarves to shop.  What a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season!

OLYMPIC SWIMMER "CRACKED" UNDER PRESSURE!

MICHAEL PHELPSAs of last week the only Olympic swimmer that made headlines was Michael Phelps.   Mr. Phelps dominated the media when he won a staggering 8 Gold medals at the Beijing summer Olympics in August of 2008.   All that changed when Ricky Berens had a wardrobe malfunction and bared his buttocks for all to see at the world swimming championship in Rome on Sunday.RICKY BERENSSPEED DEMON CLEAVAGE

Mr. Berens said he felt his suit rip as he bent over to stretch and then it was too late.   The suit was skin tight and put a new spin on the word cleavage!  

I was instantly reminded of a Thierry Mugler design from the 90's when he played with the concept of cleavage.  The bad boy of French fashion designed a look to accentuate the female anatomy and force us to look at the symmetry that is the miracle of the female form.   THIERRY MUGLER ROBOTThe show was Fall/Winter of 95.   I was working for Mugler then and I had the dubious task of wrangling up the go-go boys from New York for the finale of the show in Paris.   It was a tough job - but someone had to do it!  Watch the clip on youtube - click MUGLER CLEAVAGE.   You should watch the whole show - because there are more celebs than you will ever see on a fashion runway again!  From screen legend Tippi Hedren to infamous heiress Patti Hearst, it is celeb studded in addition to every super model of the day!   The ladies lined up to walk for Mugler because they knew Thierry was one of the most creative designers around.  The cleavage happens around 5:10.CRACKED UNDER PRESSURE

Thank you Thierry, and Thank YOU Ricky.   Mr. Berens did finish with a qualifying time!

If you need more inspiration to get your own buttocks to the gym - I can't help you.  Just print out this picture and tape it on your refrigerator.
