Flat is queen

According to Another’s Laura Bradley, Fashion weeks from Paris to New York have shown a trend back to flat shoes. Yeah!;) For someone rarely wearing heels, I am very pleased with this trend that I unknowingly have sported over the last 20 years, yeah, I am almost an avantgardista;) Although not sure I’d wear Celine’s Furkenstocks or Ferragamo’s Sandaloot. Prada’s Tabi is done and done with Sou Sou Tabi shoes bought back when I was doing an exchange year at Kyoto University.

The advance of the African Continent

Africa’s influence and importance can be felt more and more, especially in fashion. While Marc by Marc Jacobs SS 2010 Collection already lead the way (yes, and YSL well before that), this years fashion shows have almost all picked up something tribal. With the Marni for H&M Collection, African “Pagne” have also received the seal of high street approval. It’s funny to think that when I was wearing my bf’s large shorts made of a beautiful and colourful pagne ivoirien two years ago, people were staring at me while just a week ago they were storming H&M to snap up one of Marni’s african inspired designs.
