The well-“red” Parisian… In summertime, I think the color red gives us Parisians a little lift. It’s warm, it looks good, and it’s flamboyant! We Parisians wear it with black, gray or white. Anything can look great in red (handbag, gloves, coat, that sexy little dress). But keep the look sober, if you want to achieve Parisian elegance.

Hotel Majestic: a must in Cannes, in front of the Palais des festivals. A mythical and historical place. We live here with the Cannes Film Festival because many film stars are residing or will reside here again this year from May 14 to 25. Because the hotel inherited the cinema. I have placed my suitcases under the sumptuous decor of the lobby of Hotel Le Majestic to discover the palace 3 days before the beginning of the Festival. Shall we go?

È la perla nascosta di un gruppo molto particolare. Creato nel 1975 da Marie-France e Bernard Cohen, Bonpoint è entrato quasi trent’anni dopo nel giro dell’holding di famiglia EPI. 

A partire dal 1830, Charles Christofle, orafo parigino, si dedica, sempre con eleganza e savoir-faire,    alla creazione di un’arte della tavola eccezionale, di gioielli raffinati, di accessori per la casa e per l’arredamento. Al di là dell’eccellenza nella lavorazione dell’argento, che ha contribuito al successo e alla notorietà di questa bella Maison, è grazie anche alla ricerca formale, alla cultura della rarità dei materiali, che nascono delle collezioni di opere di alto pregio…

Luxury is today a major actor in the French economy, the creator of wealth, added value and supplier of foreign currencies. However, in reality, the real force of Luxury has been to maintain against all obstacles, in the twentieth century, period of excessive automation and robotics, conservatories of craftsmanship, thereby giving priority to the individual over the group. The nobility of Luxury becomes evident to all those in contact with it, because it’s impossible to remain insensitive to the beauty of the skills of the craftsman…

Surely, in your life, you have met women that were spreading something incredibly attractive around them. Something that attracted both men and women. And it was not the exterior beauty. It was something inside of them. Remember what Lady Diana was like? It’s not surprising that almost 20 years after her death, people still remember her charisma, allure and aura. Another perfect example is Audrey Hepburn. 

Throughout the season, the trench coat has undergone several transformations, and whatever your personal style, has always been able to adapt to it. This year, there are many interesting trench coat styles to choose from.  Classic or stylish a trench coat can be worn over a suit, jeans but also on a feminine lace dress. But let’s talk before of the story of the original trench coat.

It's been hard to deny the appeal of natural colors in recent months, thanks to a flood of designers who refreshed them on spring/summer 2019's catwalks. Burberry led the charge with its traditional trench coats and checked shirt and coordinating camel trousers, but the palette was everywhere from Chanel to Dior, Fendi to Loewe. So, why beige, why now? If fashion is the constant push and pull of action and reaction, then we could call beige a backlash to the 'look at me' showboating that Instagram and the rise of street style have spawned. Maybe in a world of overstimulation, designers were issuing an official invitation to pare things back and start afresh. Whatever the reason, we're all aboard the beige train.

She is genial, discrete and paradoxale… "I once said that I'm anti-consumerist, and that goes against the work I do. It caused a scandal: 'Who is she to think that? She is going against her clientele.' But I do fashion because I'm happy when somebody gets joy from a new garment. There is a magic side to this"…

Il clafouti all'inizio è un dolce francese tradizionalmente a base di ciliegie mascherate, cioè interamente ricoperto da una sorta di pasta flan. Una torta che viene servita calda, un classico delle tavole francese. Qualche tempo fa mi sono divertito a inventare una variante italiana a base di.... pomodorini e mozzarella. I miei amici (milanesi di passaggio a Roma) sono rimasti stupiti: gli ingredienti si combinano magnificamente per dare un piatto gustoso e molto originale.
