Kenzo painting…

This site is about fashion and what can be more fashion than to follow one of the greatest explorers of fashion on his new explorations. His whole life is a creative artistic journey in beauty. Here in front of two of his paintings. to paint portraits is so totally new for him in this kind of classical way and it will be interesting to see where he will take it when he has been on it for awhile. Here a first peek of his first portrait of his friend Thierry.

With Kenzo in Paris…

KENZO! My very dear friend. We have known each other for more than 40 years now. We first met when he was standing on a ladder in his first little hole in the wall shop at passage Vivienne, painting a flower decoration on the wall. I came to see him to be in his first show which was inside the passage Vivienne. So much real joy and playfulness in that show! A new era in fashion started there and then! Immediate friendship also started to blossom between us then and has continued ever since. Kenzo is a being of extreme kindness and integrity and one of the most multi talented artists I know. He keeps surprising me. Since he stopped designing for his own brand KENZO,  he has expressed himself in many  different arts, designing both carpets and glass.Now he is painting. I love what he has done so far, different themes over the last few years, all big and colourful. I stayed at his house during this last fashion week and my last day in Paris we had a photo session for a portrait he is going to paint of me. It was a wonderful day with lunch at TOYO and also an interview with a japanese team doing a documentary on Kenzo. I`m so blessed!

Sealed with a kiss…

Pont des Arts! I love this bridge! I love it! The most extraordinary view of Paris on both sides, the lovers kissing, the music and pick nicks, the wooden ground…and the best way to walk from St.Germain to le Louvre, les Tuilleries, Palais Royal, place Vendome, Colette…comme des garcons…

DSC_9464All the love locks, thousands of them…are they from true lovers or is it just a trend a hype…as many locks as many kisses…a bridge full of locks sealed with a kiss…they say they will have to take them away, they are too heavy for the bridge. Where will all the kisses go?DSC_9471 I`m posing here for you,  filled with joy to be here…dressed in white. I love to wear all white in Paris, this time more than ever before and it turned out to be a lot of white in this seasons fashion shows as well. My coat is by Emma Hanseklint for Khadi and Co and my platform boots from Reschia, the rest is layers of silk from different places…DSC_9474a classic momentDSC_9483The locks are a trend that started here and the next trend is tagging them as well…explosion of creative expression…DSC_9488and new commerceDSC_9491filmmaking…DSC_9500coming to cafe Marly greeted by Patricia as always with a warm hug and the best table…just in front of le pyramide…and my lunch moment…now I`m in Paris!
