Cristina: Oz is a romantic wizard who made people believe in his power only to make them believe in theirs.
B: He was an outlaw who fooled Dorothy and the gang, until they discovered that the almighty wizard is a fraud… But his character, in the story, is a symbol of an entity Dorothy trusts to solve all her problems. When, in truth, she prevails on her own. Through her own power. With her helpers, which are, actually, features of her personality. Courage, wit, compassion… She only needed to discover them. That’s the point! You don’t need the wizard, you have it all inside of you. A parallel between Oz and self-discovery… Hmm, come to think about it, this really is your direction.
Cristina: To the core!
B: Your sense of style is inside of you. You discover your own style. What makes you feel good and helps express yourself freely. Not copying trends that don’t, necessarily, fit you.
Cristina: Precisely the message behind Oz in Paris.
B: And why in Paris? Because it’s the symbol of style in the world!
C: Oui, oui and oui!
OZ is the romantic wizard that makes the magic shine through his story and style only to, ultimately, make the magic shine through the story and style of the whole world ever since 1900. I’m imagining he’s in Paris now, living Hemingway’s Moveable Feast. A sexy twist!
Hey, this is Cristina Pavelescu wearing a music cassette sweater, decoding (life) style and writing from wherever, yet always living in the world of Oz I invite you into. To smile in front of our screens (and in person one day), put any kind of questions, answer in writing (or imagination) and marvel at fashion which is, in fact, style.
Yes, it is, mainly, about style, because clothes are so much more than just /’fæʃən/.
Not a fashion aficionado? You must be wearing some piece of clothing right now. I’m so curious what that is! If your attire, by any chance, consists of just a leaf intelligently placed, you are the luckiest of us all and I, most definitely, want to meet you.
Until then, I am setting my OZ in Paris – the place we all heard so many stories about, then we get there and it’s all (come on!) true. Is there anything nicer?
You get to make up your own life, then make it come true and eat pancakes.
Crêpes au chocolat, s’il vous plaît!
Make, follow or forget about the rules. In fashion and life. Do it passionately in style, be your own OZ wherever you are, mange des crêpes and have fun! Girl surfing emoji
