Another sunny day in Croatia and it feels great to soak up the sun energy as much as possible. I feel that my batteries are slowly recharging. We went for some small shopping and pizza today. Croatian pizzas are my favorite ones. I still have to try the NYC ones, but until then, these are my favorites. I still haven't tried a single bad pizza over here :))
Long walks and talks with my family is what makes me calm and happy. I wish that it would be possible to have all of the best things from here and Finland put together in one place, then my life would be complete :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
Here's what I wore today:
Shoes - Clarks, Jeans - Diesel, Top - Mango, Scarf - Mango, Blazer - Zara, Bag - Lancel, Sunglasses - Marc Jacobs, Bracelets - Pieces
This is the last set of photos I took while I was in Cluj, I didn't had the time to post them, but here they are now..nothing much to say, except that the Atmosphere dress I am wearing is new, courtesy of Mini Prix. You know I am crazy about floral prints.. Have a great weekend all you fashionable people!
Don't forget about the TinaR Giveaway, only for Romanian readers, you have time until tomorrow at 11:58 PM!
Wearing: Atmosphere dress, vintage jacket, belt and purse, Leonardo shoes, New Yorker hat
It's been a beautiful, sunny week here in London. Before we hop off for hopefully more of the same (perhaps optimistically), here's our round-up of what's been happening in the world of fashion.
Stefano Pilati is mostly going on holiday in the near future, he said earlier this week (image from www.silverliningopticians.com)
A month after his swift departure from YSL, Stefano Pilati has spoken out about his future plans and career to date. He appeared at La Musee de la Mode et du Textile this week as part of their "Fashion Talks" series. Pilati spoke about his 'dramatic, tragical' start at YSL under Tom Ford. The end of Pilati's tenure was announced just days before the AW12 show. As had earlier been predicted, Hedi Slimane has come back to YSL as his replacement. With no apparent job lined up, it would be understandable if Pilati were reticent about discussing the future, but he had this to say: “I am really happy, which is something very unusual for me in a sense that I never believed that it could have been possible to feel happy, at least under these kinds of circumstances".
Jospeh Altuzarra has collaborated on collection with J.Crew- cannot wait (image from www.forbes.com)
I could barely contain my excitement earlier this week when I spied on Twitter that CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund winner Jospeh Altuzarra had collaborated with J.Crew. It seemed like one of those fashion rumours which maybe a little too good to be true. But then I went to the press day of Altuzarra's UK PR who confirmed that it was indeed true. Altuzarra apparently said "So we worked on collaboration which I think will be coming out in a few weeks". Now I just need to find a way to magic myself to the US or pray hard that the pieces will be available to ship to the UK.

Claudia Schiffer's Guess ads in the late 80s are some of the most iconic from the time. They sum up the look of the moment pretty accurately. To celebrate the Guess's 30th anniversary, Schiffer has returned to become the face of the brand, recreating the images with a slightly rockier vibe. The campaign has been shot by one of Guess's original ad photographers Elle von Unwerth. Schiffer models looks from the capsule collection which has been produced to celebrate the milestone. Somehow, Claudia hasn't changed too much at all in the 23 years since the original ads.

Another of the 80s SUPERmodels is back on our radar this week. Christy Turlington is on the cover of Tatler's May issue and wears an excellent straw boater and painted on moustache, working a kind of 30s riviera photographer look. We love.

Dora Maar by Pablo Picasso, 1939 (from www.coloradomagazine.blogspot.com)
However, it was announced this week that Gwyneth will be playing Dora in a new film about one of Picasso's most famous paintings Guernica. And when you see how Dora looked in real life, the Gwyneth choice makes more sense.

Rihanna was the subject of much consternation last week when she explained that she gets more body confident, the more naked she gets. "What do you know?" was the general response. Victoria Beckham has taken RiRi's "What body image planet are you on?" crown by claiming that when she tests out her designs, she says "I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here". As if to rub salt into the wound further, the feature in Harper's Bazaar is accompanied by a series of shots of VB in 50s style swimwear. We sort of love that she still thinks she can pull herself off as a member of the general public. See you in Sainsburys Victoria!

Who knows how she did it, but Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman has written her first novel entitled Can We Still Be Friends? It will be released on April 12th and was launched this week with a party at Sothebys. The Vogue website published Shulman's great account of how she found time to write and what the book is about. I can't wait to read it.

A slightly mysterious announcement this week from H&M who say they will be launching 'a completely new store chain' next year. The new chain will apparently will modelled on Cos which is also owned by the Hennes group. Karl-Johan Persson, H&M's CEO told WWD 'Like COS, which today is very successful with good profitability, the new chain of stores will be independent and complement the other offerings from the group'. We look forward to seeing what they come up with.
Finally, video of the week goes to ASOS who have created this short film as part of their collaboration with designer of super chic sportswear, Ebru Ercon on the SS12 REVIVE collection. The video sums up perfectly the 90s rave with a modern sportswear twist which is the ethos of the collection. Given that Ercon used to be Head Designer on Stella McCartney for Adidas, it's not surprising that she's nailed the Summer's sportswear trend. The video was styled by the very cool stylist and blogger, Madeleine Ostile and used the music videos of dance acts like Yazz and Inner City as starting points. The collection isn't available to buy until 23rd April, but you can have a sneek peek here
A few days ago, "Easy Fashion Paris" had its 4 000 000 th visitor since creation of my blog. Incredible and a great satisfaction for me ! But let me tell you something has changed and not in a good way. Where Easy Fashion had 25 comments , now I get hardly 5 comments for a post. Why ?
I tell you why: Some visitors are taking Street Style Blogs for supermarkets of free Fashion pictures picking up pictures and never let a comment or a smile. They come here just to take pics and bring them back to Fashion Forums or Social networks like "The Fashion Spot" (which hosts hundreds of my pictures and denied me access) or "Pinterest"(With his big mouth full of deontology). Even when they link back, they bring no traffic at all ... And let me tell you about those who steal 100% of my blog (like Feedmefashion) or dirty people who duplicate it (changing one letter or more in the adress) to sell advertising. That's my situation today and I will not go on like that eternally if I have not your support. Thank you !
Il y a quelques jours, "Easy Fashion Paris" a dépassé les 4 000 000 de visiteurs depuis sa création. C'est incroyable et une vraie satisfaction pour moi. Toutefois une chose me désespère. J'avais il y a peu 25 commentaires ou plus pour un post et j'en ai maintenant difficilement 5. Pourquoi ?
Je vais vous dire pourquoi: Certains visiteurs prennent prennent les blogs de Street Style pour des supermarchés de photos gratuites et les "délocalisent" sur des forums ou des réseaux sociaux sans jamais laisser un petit mot ou un sourire. Pour les citer, ce sont entre-autres "The Fashion Spot" qui héberge des centaines de mes photos (et qui me refuse l'accès au forum) ou même "Pinterest" (avec sa grande bouche pleine du mot "déontologie"). Tous ces sites n'apporte aucun traffic en retour vers Easy Fashion et "profitent" de mon travail. Et encore laissez-moi vous parler de ceux qui volent l'intégralité de mes photos (comme Feedmefashion) ou les gens éhontés qui dupliquent mon blog purement et simplement en changeant une ou plusieurs lettres dans l'adresse (certains gardent le nom "Easy Fashion Paris") pour entretenir la confusion et vendre de la publicité. Je ne pourrais pas continuer éternellement, si je n'ai pas votre soutien. Merci !
