EYES plus RED FRINGE LASHES: designer John Galliano for Maison Martin Margiela in 2015, and artist Scooter LaForge for Gazelle Paulo in 2012

Fashion coincidences are always happening…after all, creative people are allowed and can think the same way at any time.

john gaLLiano debuts at maison martin margiela

The fashion world can almost seat back and relax after witnessing today, in London, the debut show of John Galliano for the Maison Martin Margiela. The first impression is always a strong one, if not the strongest at times, and when Galliano started the show by sending out a beige jacket with unfinished seams which had matchbox-sized toy black cars as the trim, paired with black and nude vertical strips tights, it was indeed a confirmation that we could all calm down for now, until next collection of course. Yes, we know he gets the Martin Margiela aesthetic and the show demonstrated his willingness to contain his inclination to excessive grandeur…so now let’s wait and see if the world will follow his adventure at his new fashion home…

this is my life – shirley baSSey

Funny how a lonely day, can make a person say:
What good is my life
Funny how a breaking heart, can make me start to say:
What good is my life
Funny how I often seem, to think I’ll never find a dream
In my life
Till I look around and see, this great big world is part of me
And my life
This is my life
Today, tomorrow, love will come and find me
But that’s the way that I was born to be
This is me
This is me

This is my life
And I don’t give a damn for lost emotions
I’ve such a lot of love I’ve got to give
Let me live
Let me live

Sometime when I feel afraid, I think of what a mess I’ve made
Of my life
Crying over my mistakes, forgetting all the breaks I’ve had
In my life
I was put on earth to be, a part of this great world is me
And my life
Guess I’ll just add up the score, and count the things I’m grateful for
In my life
This Is my life
Today, tomorrow, love will come and find me
But that’s the way that I was born to be
This is me
This is me

This is my life
And I don’t give a damn for lost emotions
I’ve such a lot of love I’ve got to give
Let me live
Let me live

This is my life
This is my life
This is my life 

15 years of expansão magazine

expansao 2

To celebrate 15 years in the business, the Brazilian magazine Expansão RS - based in the south of Brazil – asked some interesting people what is the recipe for happiness. Although I am not really a promoter as they printed on the page, I felt very happy to be part of their celebration surrounded by such cool people.

Today, I was having lunch with dear friends Brian Christopher Cummings, Paul E Alexander and artist Scooter LaForge at the famous and iconic Serendipity 3 restaurant, in New York City; next to our table, Carla Esparza – winning of UFC straw weight gold – was celebrating her championship with the Grand Opulence Sundae with the price tag of $1,000 (Guinness World Record). Carla and her colleague Felice Herrig were so excited; the gorgeous and delicious looking sundae has a mix of caviar and golden leaves among other luxurious components. For those interested on indulge themselves, a 48 hours advance reservation is required. The beautiful ladies also left with Serendipity 3 gift bags.
