I’m just about in control! But last week the urge to own sensational things overwhelmed me. Not because my senses or my emotions were running away, but because successful creative people were selling me dreams. I always review Burberry. Christopher Bailey is a friend of our university and a truly caring, creative designer. His use of music is sensitive, of the moment; making Burberry Prorsum the most ‘must-hear!’
So I want to know what everyone else is saying about him. Reading Cathy Horyn’s review of the Burberry S/S 2014 show in the New York Times – ‘separates, the new super-soft double-faced cashmere coats in pastels and neutrals, the cardigans and the proposal of a semi-transparent lace skirt’ nyti.ms/15y4AJU
Then I found myself being irresistibly directed to ‘Upon Reflection, Anne Fontaine’s Feminine Touch’ nyti.ms/15uJY54
As the director of ‘Coco Avant Chanel’ her work is essential viewing for me. There she is in the New York Times demonstrating how she would not be without her mirrored compact lipstick in ‘Grenade’ by Guerlain! It’s key to her success, she seems to be saying!
It was meant to be an interview about her latest movie ‘Adore!’ I had to have the lipstick! pinterest.com/pin/4130652155 How many other ‘Coco Avant Chanel’ fans rushed out or to Paypal to join the party?
Through Fashion, perfume and jewels, rather than anything more practical, we believe we can lead lives of love, romance and glamour. And of course, we can!?
Every time I open up the intriguing little compact and apply the enchantingly scented stick to my lips I’m transported to the idyllic worlds of blue trains, Shalimar, Paris and the chicest little black dress on the catwalk.
