Watch this Yohji show with me:
At the Haider Ackerman show…
Some of us stay to great him after the show
I had a close up meeting with Tilda Swinton. What an amazing being. Naked and strong. Friendly, inviting and with very defined boundaries. A human being from deep heaven and earth. Cosmic and like a deer in the forest. I was stunned and moved by this meeting.
Haider. We shared a moment of true dancing in Stockholm. He told that to everyone. Further I don`t know him but I`m looking forward to the next meeting. And his collection was really beautiful. Meetings happen in time and space. All meetings happen in me. I am the source of all my meetings.
TODAY! Here is what I did today! Spent a few wonderfully inspiring hours with The Brave Brand who just opened their Pepshop.
And earlier in Paris
Bill Cunningham, a friend since over 40 years in fashion. Himself 84, never misses a show.
Read more about this extraordinary man
i eagerly look for him when I arrive to Paris fashion week and…OH JOY, there he is!
Always so friendly with everyone. We had a friend in common late 60s, Antonio Lopez, the designer.
Yvan is another of the faithful street photographers and his Facehunter. See here
I will remember her name as well.
So many of them everywhere.
Right now a weave between being back in Sweden at a healing training and sharing my time in Paris fashion week with you. Here at the Yohji show:
This very beautiful woman Carla Sozzani I have met for over 20 years now at all the shows and in her space. She is one of the upmost fashion people on the planet…and look …she is wearing no make up. She has THE fashion store in Milano 10 Corso Como.
1990, September: Carla Sozzani, former fashion editor and publisher,opens Galleria Carla Sozzani for photography, art and design in a converted garage at n° 10 Corso Como in Milano.Sozzani and American artist Kris Ruhs spend the next twentytwo years creating a space and a lifestyle like no other.The Galleria is soon joined by a bookshop, a fashion and design store, a garden cafe and eventually a boutique hotel of three rooms for guests. Abandoning all accepted retail practices, 10 Corso Como promotes slow shopping through a succession of spaces and events that reflect lifestyle over object acquisition.10 Corso Como becomes the nexus of a global network of cultures and exchanges through fashion, food, art and photography that galvanizes marketing through the 1990’s and sets the vocabulary for international style into the 21st Century.
Yohji is the master of black and the master of shapes. This time he was absolutely true to himself and made a very strong collection.
All black with some white details…
and some exceptions like this colorful one
and this Bonnie and Clyde grey suit.
Yokji himself. Always a precious moment to meet him after the show…
and his sweet mother…
niece and son.
This girl had her own colorful show, more of the japanese Kawai, cute style.
This is the most beautiful of all pictures taken of me. One is, you don´t see me really and the other is, you can totally feel the space I`m in and it is a deeply beautiful one. So often in this world of fashion we are asked to give up ourselves, to give up who we truly are, to fit into a picture. And other times it can be the most incredible experience of direct inner contact with the true beauty, a real moment of meeting that within. This was a moment like that. The set up of a photograph taken is often like going into a space of meditation, there are preparations being made that allows this, like hair getting done and place set up… it can so be quiet. This one was extremely quiet and I was very quiet. So the moment of the photo was like a moment of prayer, really a moment of prayer.
