“Be your own muse”

Hello there! Went pining looking for inspiration and lost the track of time. I guess it’s true that 1 minute surfing Pinterest is 15 minutes in real life… but I’m here again with the inspiration I was looking for.

Moda Operandi launched a new campaign under the name “Be your own muse” in collaboration with some Gods of the fashion world such as Carolina Herrera. I must confess that I felt kind of silly looking for inspiration everywhere without realizing that inspiration was in front pf the mirror every day!

This clever campaign stand out the importance of self creations of style, wearing clothes that scream who you are and what you want to project to the world instead of wearing a brand or stuff that you don’t die for just because is on trend.

No more talking!  I let you with the ones who know their business. Enjoy!

 

 

Lanvin and Pitbull

I must confess I’m a big fan of Pitbull and when I knew Lanvin (that has an special place in my heart) had a mix with his music for the new FW Campaign got shocked!. This is not really a song I’m crazy about but I have to admit it’s awesome!!!  The contrast between the whole look, the models’ attitude and the rhythm of the music makes the concept even better.

Candy: Alber Elbaz is just eye candy in this video (or anywhere!)

Hey hey you there!!!

Let’s talk about concepts, ready? by definition “wearable” is anything that is in direct contact with your skin, so, that includes fragrances, in other words you are actually dressed up by just wearing perfume. Imagine the possibilities and happiness when you have fashion legends and couture reigning your dressing room from gorgeous bottles.

Now, let’s talk about Gaultier, the name speaks for itself and it’s not shy at all to yell glamour, sexiness and temptation… I guess is time to introduce you Jon Kortajarena, the man who bring those words to life and the fragance which is the soul of them, Kokorico.

Jon Kortajarena is a spanish top model but is easy to see that if you check this

Candy: turn your boyfriend into a hot boyfriend by dressing him up just with Kokoriko, the notes of fig leaves, cacao and wood will give a man in it´s purest way.

Lenny Niemeyer: Summer, Architecture and Fashion

Hey, hey you there!

When i say “summer time” what is the first picture that comes to your mind? Yes! bikinis!!! and hot bodies of course… and where is the place where everybody look like a half naked top model all the time? Brazil, for sure. The most important thing to have in mind when you are heading brazilian beaches is that you are going to be surrounded by dreamy natural bodies, so the way to can make a big entrance is by wearing  stunning swimwear and the girl for the perfect brazilian swimwear is Lenny Niemeyer.

Lenny Niemeyer used to be a landscape architect and family of the most famous brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.  This background let her create pieces that mix architectonic textures, balance, concept and take to women’s skin the words of Oscar Niemeyer ”  It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve — the curve that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the beloved woman”

The non fabric elements make the eye focus on your back through a sensual curve.   

The broken ceramic texture will take your breast to the spotlight.

Geometry .

The curve makes the look go trought all your body. 

The reminder of a wall, tall, strong, indestructible…

So, girls, summer is here, work out and turn the beach into your empire!

Candy: stylish one piece swimwear by Lenny! I love the 2008 collection, but the new one is awesome too!!!
