Secale-C is based on a grain extract that targets the deepest layers of the epidermis, reinforcing the regenerative power of cells and rebuilding the “biological […]
“It’s always tricky, buying perfume for someone else,” says Frédéric Malle. As the architect behind Editions de Parfums—a collection of nineteen original scents created in collaboration with the world’s top noses—he appreciates the value of a beautifully crafted fragrance. Still, he insists, when it comes to gifting fragrance for the holidays, it’s not about playing it safe. “A lot of people give Chanel No. 5 for the same reason they might buy an Apple computer—because they think they can’t go wrong,” says […]

As special consultant to the Metropolitan Museum, she transformed traditionally dull museum shows of clothes […]
Diana Vreeland in Paris in 1971 – Photo By Christian Avril Diana Vreeland was articulate and witty, with an unusual gift for the unexpected, striking aphorism (“Pink is the navy blue of India”; “Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola”; Coco Chanel “had the expression of a baby bull dressed like a Russian sailor”; “As you know, a well-kept invalid lasts forever.”) She said, in creating a magazine or a museum show, “I’m looking for something else. I’m […]

During her 26-year tenure at US Harper’s BAZAAR (1936–62), Diana didn’t just clothe women; she presented them with aspirations, ideas and the possibility of a […]

Kelly, Birkin, and Nausicaa styles have all been shrunken and reimagined in precious metals and stones. And a new bag created […]

A severe femininity ran through Gucci’s pre-fall collection. Putting aside her penchant for the Seventies and rock ’n’ roll, creative director Frida Giannini focused on Fifties-inspired shapes and a sophisticated combination of sober greens with an intense teal and hints of leopard. “This is a contemporary femme fatale who relishes her own dark mood,” said Giannini. “Armed with an invulnerable aesthetic, she has an elusive sensuality — like the protagonist in a game of pursuit.”
