Fashion K.O.

After yoga and surfing, boxing has become the new fashionable sport. Whether on the catwalk, in gyms or Instagram, it seduces for its many benefits and modern philosophy. It seems to be an appropriate response to well being issues of the urban assets in an increasingly demanding society. Gym clubs multiply versions like Adi-Boxing or Body Combat to fit both female and male expectations. Sculpting the body, forging the mind, this sport has already conquered numerous celebrities like Adriana Lima and Alexandra Rosenfeld. Cara Delavingne and Karlie Kloss appear with gloves on social networks. Boxing also invites itself on the catwalks like in the collection Alexander Wang X H&M or the Chanel campaign for Fall/ Winter 2014/15. Karl Lagerfeld is inspired by it for his collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Moncler Gamme Bleue has made its theme about it for its spring/summer 2015 fashion show . To fetch some inspiration, I’ve prepared a mood board on pinterest.

Bell lamp

Continually seeking innovation while safeguarding traditions, Louis Vuitton asked a selection of contemporary designers, both established and upcoming, to create a series of objects connected to travel. The idea behind the collection is to produce limited edition foldable and modular furniture, or other portable accessories which facilitate the life of modern travelers. I’m particuly in love with the Bell Lamp by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.

Manhattan

Small discovery of New York City through the famous cocktail: the Manhattan

Ingrdients:

2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey

1 ounce sweet vermouth

2-3 dashes aromatic bitters

maraschino cherry for garnish

orange peel for garnish

Fill a martini glass to the brim with ice so it chills while you make the Manhattan. Add whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters to a shaker or glass with a few ice cubes, and then stir or gently shake. Do not over do it, you do not want the ice to water down the drink. Discard ice from martini glass then strain Manhattan into the chilled glass and garnish with cherry and orange peel.

Polka Dots

Yayoi Kusama like dots, all dots. Some say that it turns to obsession but it is art! I share the same passion for dots like this Japonese artist. A friend brought me one of her little keychain from Japan. I am so afraid of damaging it that I did not go out of the box! In short, this whole story to tell you that Ms. Kusama is invited by Louis Vuitton for this winter!
