A Chameleon named Karl Lagerfeld

When we wonder about Karl Lagerfeld, we finally know little about this fashion gentleman who lives a hundred miles an hour.   Certainly no one speaks faster than he does (and that in four languages), but he delivers little on him.

From Gabrielle Chanel to Picasso to Jean-Paul Gauthier…

La marinière Fashion is also made of stereotypes, which often reflect the reality. One can imagine the typical profile of the typical Frenchman, a beret, a wand under his arm, a Gauloises between his fingers and a white jersey with blue stripes, with three-quarter sleeves and a boat neck. The Breton jersey, or marinière, has [...]

The choker, or “dog collar”

Accessory star of the 90's, the chocker was since dethroned by the long necklaces and other jewelry. Yet it seems that this emblematic necklace necklace did not say his last word.
