Everybody Is At Least A Little Into Fashion #ss18

 

The things that first come to my mind when thinking of this fall’s fashion weeks for spring/summer 2018 might be the things you might want – hopefully – to have in your mind when talking over dinner tonight about the world, fate, work, passion, movies, books, style or fashion – hopefully – without the burden of ever being a fashion victim.

The more we know, the more we realise how much more there is to know is what they say, right?

Sometimes enjoying fashion feels wrong, yet at other times playing with it feels necessary just for the sake of playing and our brains. There is no prescription for how we’re supposed to act, think or do, so each of us can simply rely on what each of us feels based on intuition and knowledge.

So tonight, you and your friends. Dinner. Maybe some of them know, maybe some of them don’t, but you here reading this are about to find out. Because you are special, we all are and – hopefully – the friends you hang out with get you and are on the same page with you, unlike the lady who interviewed Jim Carrey during New York fashion week. The shock might have scared her and that’s why all the ***faces*** while Jim Carrey was just being himself and expressing in his own way what he felt like ***no faces***. Ultimately, we all kind of get what he sais, each of us just chooses whatever it is each of us wants to see or believe in.

So. Hello!

Pierpaolo Piccioli proved at Valentino once again that if you stay true to who you are and, therefore, do exactly what you feel like, in spite of trends, trending models or multi-million-followers Instagram accounts, you can reinvent the ordinary to make it extraordinary. Sort of the little things which are never little. Or simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

That you can actually make love that can be shared with the world.

Renaissance princesses with a twist. Translucent and sparkling dresses. Sportswear with pumps. Sequins. Fireworks! Millennial pink which slowly but surely turns into the timeless black. Or red, or white. Or the ’80s – always in for those embracing the disco ease, the dancing, the spirit – I wanted to get back something of the glamour of the eighties that Mr. Valentino did so well, Pierpaolo said.

Grace Jone’s soundtrack is as strong as Piccioli’s creations.

Furthermore, his walk at the end of the show was just as elegant as the collection. He simply, smilingly and nonchalantly walked into the airy Parisian courtyard through the first rows, hugged Mr. Valentino and climbed up the leader as if preparing for the lift off. The Spring Summer 2018 collection had been partly inspired by the perspective of the Apollo moon landing, in which the earth was photographed from space and revealed in all its natural wonder, as Piccioli said according to vogue.com.

Emmanuelle Alt throws the most disco parties of them all. She is who we have always believed she has been. A fun, loving life, party girl. 

Mica Argañaraz looks cool in anything she wears, depending on the show. She’s got a talent to be in any character she wants to without making a fuss out of it and lucky for it to be mastered by the coolest designers around. Check it out:

The frenzy over Thom Browne. Everybody’s stories and instastories.

Where some designers submerge themselves in the real world, Browne has always posited fashion as fantasy, dreaming bigger, pushing the eye to places it didn’t know existed. At a time when the world feels like a pretty bleak place indeed, his brand of escapism is more appealing than ever. It only makes sense then, that Browne should close his show with a life-size unicorn puppet instead of a bride – the mythical creature is surely his spirit animal. The fashion world could use more of his kind. Chioma Nnadi at vogue.com.

The trend that seems to have transitioned from the streets of #fashionweeks to our telephones and desktops is the trousers suits. The bigger and bolder the better.

Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga continues to mock the fashion victims who would wear absolutely anything at any cost (literally) as long as it’s right from the catwalks and would not think it through. Maybe they just feel and that is all right as long as they are happy. Anyway, Gvasalia’s incisive, yet chic sort of sense of humour was all over the collection.

The coolest things at the show, though: 1. the models and 2. the fact that They [items] are joined, so you can wear them one way or the other as you will (Demna Gvasalia).

Céline is céline as always.

Calvin Klein for having Kaia Gerber on the lips of the whole planet.

Prada‘s new shape of sunglasses for Spring Summer 2018.

The colours at Stella McCartney and Stella McCartney.

The jumpsuits at Emanuel Ungaro.

The Vera Wang SS18 pictures that very mysteriously walked through the feed of my Instagram.

Old school cool at Isabel Marant.

Louis Vuitton for having Alicia Vikander as their icon and as of the #pfw Emma Stone also. A Vogue editor summed up the SS collection though as “Hamilton goes jogging”. The truth is that the robes and the bags were striking.


The neon socks at Miu Miu.

👇🏻 at Marni.

And yes, Donatella Versace‘s blow up of Instagram. Phshhh!

Have a good Fall WInter 2017, everybody!

And a fun night all right! Wink.

The Fabulous And The Ever Inspiring Lauren Hutton!

You just can not skip the video from above. It is our tipping point in getting to know a woman alike very few on the planet.

In fact!

Do they make them anymore? A divine force makes them for sure, they are amongst us and they, most probably, are our moms and girlfriends or women we secretly admire.

Beautiful women who not only are beautiful, but own this je ne sais quoi which one can not put one’s finger on, but it is what makes them even more je ne sais and turn the quoi into everything one imagines a fabulous woman should be (not just look) like. They don’t call it “je ne sais quoi” for nothing, anyway. It’s everything.

You can not touch it, but you, most certainly, can feel it. Sense it. Scent it, hello!

I mean, of course there is Beyoncé, there is Lena Perminova and Julia Sarr-Jamois. Each of them fabulous in each of the categories they belong to, duh.

But. But! There is a type of woman, like my mom, for instance, is, who has this thing I feel surrounded by when in their presence. It’s like the stars filter on Snapchat. I just put my face into the filter and – boom! – stars come out of my head. I can not touch the stars, but I can see them above my head when I do the thing with the app on my phone.

Model and actress, a record of 41 Vogue covers, starred in films like “American Gigolo” alongside Richard Gere and “Little Fauss and Big Halsy” alongside Robert Redford, is still a model at IMG Models, is that kind of woman, ladies and gentlemen, the icon…

Lauren Hutton!

Prior to a motorcycle journey to celebrate “The Art of the Motorcycle” exhibit in 2000, alongside Dennis Hopper, Laurence Fishburne and Jeremy Irons, Hutton informed the “Las Vegas Review-Journal”: “I love the feeling of being a naked egg atop that throbbing steel. You feel vulnerable — but so alive.”

Born in November 17, 1943.

Now you know.

In South Carolina. Went to University of South Florida, moved with a boyfriend dj to New York, worked as a waitress at the Playboy Club, got her bachelor of arts degree and became one of the most successful models in the USA, using her job both to make money (in 1973, she landed the landmark contract with “Revlon” and earned her status as “the first $1 million-a-year girl“) and to see the world.

Whenever I came back from Africa or the Antarctic, head swelling with the beauty of it all, I found I was loving life again. You look different because of everything that has gone on inside of you…“, said Hutton on her thus far travelling and exploration in life.

***I feel you, Lauren.***

The All Movie Guide stated that the gap in her teeth “gave her on-camera persona a down-home sensibility that other, more ethereal models lacked.” Now I don’t know if you have to necessarily have the gap, but you most definitely shouldn’t be afraid of your sensibility. But rather embrace it. Just be kind and it will, eventually, turn into your power.

Lauren Hutton is not only powerful, but real, alive and honest.

The most beautiful thing about this beauty of these kind of beautiful women is that one doesn’t feel the pressure of their beauty. They either don’t know or forget about the magic they create around them and smile. Their eyes smile. A magic which is, in fact, the real deal. A magic that makes you feel beautiful, you whoever you are.

You with me?

The more I see her pictures and read her interviews, I can feel the stars clinkering around my head.

Don’t you?

Moments Like This

 

Until just recently I had no idea what I truly wanted to do with my life, so I mingled from thing to thing gathering all sort of experiences, meeting different people, watching lots of movies, listening to music etc. Just keeping my eyes wide open. Mind and soul, also.

I still do all of these things (In fact, I always have this anxiety to do things, any things) with the same energy I do Netflix and chill. The same! Only now I know this is the place I have always wanted to be in and have been working for all along.

And I came to say this because of Netflix. Neah. But actually yeah. My hugging partner and I have just last night rewatched Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas”.

1. Ray Liota’s character became a gangster just because of the way of living of a gangster, not money (!) which is awesome.

2. Karen Hill’s (the character) dress, in the rat out at the police station, turned itself into the character which is just as awesome as earlier the character.

And made me realise why I love it so much to be here. Because of moments like these.ozinparis-goodfellas-karen-hill

The moment when it hit me. My mom took me to my first day of school in a dress just like this from above. Even prettier. I’ll show it to you when I find the picture. And she mesmerised me in it. Just as she did every morning getting ready for work or at nights for the parties my parents and their friends used to throw.

Man!

Just like Lorraine Bracco’s appearance in this scene. And the way they talked about style.

My mom and Karen!

It weren’t just my eyes open, I tell you. It were the ears all along, too.

And we never really thought of it when it happened, back when we were kids (I know I didn’t) until we do and then we know. So looking back, growing up, I guess I just knew the kind of woman I wanted to be. Or the woman I’ve been becoming without even realising. But then you do. I do, too. In moments like this.

Eyes and ears open, my friends. And love. Free love.

All of it leads us to today and they don’t say “Live in the moment!” for nothing, anyway.

ozinparis-goodfellas

I mean look at this robe here. Man!

PS: I am dying to wear the dress!

Yeah, interesting choice of words. And pictures.

Workout outfit in the street, peace!

If there would be a sheet of paper everywhere in the world with the words “MOST WANTED” on it and it wouldn’t have to involve a smuggler, the picture underneath the words would be this.

ozinparis-bella-gigi-hadid

Agree? They’re everywhere. Magazine covers, Instagram, the pictures of the people you wouldn’t expect them to be in, all over the Internet, Jimmy Fallon even.

There is something about them. Moreover, Bella is all lovey dovey with The Weeknd. And not only during the weekends, if you know what I mean.

G & B seem to have these out of the ordinary (that’s for sure) and all-the-muss-and-the-fuss-in-the-world kinda lives and you would, actually, expect them to fly. Not by their private jets, that’s mainstream already, but with their own, invisible wings, because hey, they are so into everything on this planet at all times, they grew some.

Yet, maybe, all they ever wanted was just inner peace. That could be very possible. What?

Anyway, my point is.

You would expect them to shine as bright as the sun. They would fly so much around the world that they would be friends with sun and when the sun would want to go on vacation, they would come and do its job.

That a muss and a fuss!

But then again, I think they didn’t have the time for a friendship with the sun and stuff, they turned the wings down and are casually strolling down the cities in their working out outfits (or so it seems) and that is cool, too, because wearing tights and crops and bombers and sneakers is so in right now.

Who cares about the wings or the sun? Let’s all inhale and dream of peace.

Pf!

No, really.

Sharing is like bff w caring

ozinparis-sharing

Make yourself a friend like this (be any of these two above you like best and make the other “the better half”, the bff) or you just do you and let your bff be your bff, meet up and see how you’d dressed up. See if you can both stand in the same window. Why? It makes clothes have fun and your relationship stronger.

I’m kidding.

Yet, sharing makes everything better. And fun makes everything best! Finds us the bffs we’ve always dreamt of. So go with the flow, wear these stuff the two of you together at the same time, almost hold hands, look straight into each other’s eyes, listen, pay attention, be as present as you can, eat each other if possible, because it simply is (and looks) too cool!

This is an Ig print screen @stylesightworldwide. And the tagging doesn’t stop here ’cause I’ve been stalking, I’ve been stalking. It goes way back to @voguebrasil and to @whatastreet. And the “besties” are @ninoeliava and @ankatsitsishvili.

Man! This is how my traffic-red-lights time or the waiting-for-the-water-to-boil-for-tea time passes.

And this could mean a lot.

ozinparis-tea

I am letting it cool as we speak, so…

They are both wearing jeans and jeans are there just to complement the va-va-voom of both outfits. Yet again and again. I can not imagine life without jeans. Or tea. Or bffs.

And this is how jeans literally let you be the va-va-voom. They are just there to support you. Your game. Your combinations. Your creativity. Your parties. Your everything. Is that too much to say? I don’t think so.

They are literally our bffs without mouths.

If only jeans could talk.
