art nouveau of shopping

This McQueen dress can now be bought in Ljubljana, yes, Ljubljana is officially McLjubljana. Yesterday the Art Nouveau building opened its old doors with something new, something that is calling itself a luxury department store: Emporium Gallery. If not prior to the Mastercard ads we all know luxury can be many many things, maybe even in a department store: the time you can take for browsing, the super glossy floor, the way you are greeted at the door and all those things you get without flashing your credit card. However, it all starts and ends with a selection, with a perfect mix and that is something this department store still needs to work on. Which Mrs and Mr Big are they trying to catch? The juxtaposition of something new and something old, high and low, the small and the huge doesn't really happen. All were sad that the Louis Vuitton deal fell through, I was sad that they didn't put Topshop in level -1. And we are still the city with no Prada. Oh my, the emperor devil is naked!

Vedela sem, da moram za to ekspedicijo poklicati BP*, dve uri in štiri kave s sojinim mlekom kasneje sva bili pripravljeni. Galerija Emporium je tako bleščeča, da so sončna očala nujna, če se po njej smukaš več kot pol ure, a očal tu ne dobiš, tudi tekočega pudra ne (ko se pod takšno lučjo uzreš v ogledalu, ti je jasno, da rabiš bolj prekriven puder in da tvoj narastek ni tako kul kot od Drew Barrymore), ne modrčka ali visokih nogavic iz kašmirja ali MJ toaletne torbice. Mar ni bistvo veleblagovnice, tudi butične, da v njej na enem mestu najdeš vse od glave do pete? Ko bodo gospe McQueenovo strganko za 1700 evrov vlekle nase, od kod bodo prodajalke potegnile opak nogavice ali jim priporočile prave hlačke za  'zasukano' obleko z zadrgo Donne Karan? Zakaj ne moremo imeti Armanijevega iluminatorja in parfuma Toma Forda,  sončnih očal Céline in zakaj ni ene torbice, ob kateri bi se ugriznil v ustnico, in niti enega parčka čevljev? In mimo balerink Pretty Ballerinas (ki so jih, če se ne motim, že imeli pri Almiri Sadar) nobene malenkosti, ki bi si jo kupil za spominek? Dolgočasna zasedba italijanskih znamk, ki stanejo ravno toliko, da Zara vsakič zmaga, in Desigual, ki bi jo morali v Ljubljani omejiti kot razmnoževanje golobov. Kje je Topshop z Boutique linijo ali mini vintidž oddelek, majhen nail studio, magari ena Testinova knjiga? To bi bila najbrž že trgovina s konceptom, katerega naj veleblagovnica ne bi premogla. Na koncu smo bile že tri, za zmagovalca smo proglasile Cavallijev pončo, bile presenečene nad izborom slovenskih predstavnikov, se na hitro zatreskale v srajce Nataše Peršuh in izginile v noč, brez ene vrečke, ki bi nam delala družbo.

les fleurs du mal


After seeing the Kane show in February I couldn't wait to rush home and check out the embroidered flowers on my old faithful Miu Miu boots. There was always this ethno factor to them that is so not me, but I have seen something dark, something Kane in them since the beginning. I will do my best and recreate that Kane feeling with them - a transparent American Apparel black shirt will have to do the trick.

Tile škorenjci so bili moj prvi net-a-porter nakup (pa saj ne, da bi jih bilo v vseh teh letih veliko, mislim, da sem kliknila še dvakrat), opravljen prvi dan razprodaj. Na veliki dan, ko sem jih premierno peljala na delovno kosilo z Ellovkami, je imelo neko dekle za šankom enake, ne, ne podobne (in malo bolj uvele), e-n-a-k-e. Tudi to se zgodi sredi Ljubljane.

next year at marienbad

Reading the anniversary British Elle I was just saying how come nobody chose this black and white extravaganza as the most stylish movie of all time. True, nobody asked Mr. Lagerfeld.

Lani v Marienbadu sem gledala na hreščavem platnu Kinoteke. Nič ne bi imela proti déjà vuju. 

PST: Črna črtica na prečki!

come on chanel

via tfs
While we are waiting for style.com or vogue.co.uk to upload the Chanel show (god, we have become so impatient, I have read the review but without the pics it is so puzzling) here is the oh so lovely invitation. Nothing camp about it. That's what Chanel stands for; even if you think that the jetty collection is fake it has nothing to do with the power of the double C.

Kar se mene tiče, sta ostali samo še Vuitton in Miu Miu reviji, potem pa je spet konec sezone, čeprav naj bi se začela šele čez pol leta. Še prejšnji teden sva z B čebljali o Jil Sander, Pradi na banani, scuba diving Marniju, CK Versusu, obe pa sva se strinjali, da ko pride Pariz, bova na vse, kar je bilo prej, pozabili. Ker bo gospa Love, ki na Givenchyjevi zabavi poje Gagino romanco, tako zelo potegnila na Madonno in bo treba dvakrat pogledati, ali sem pri Ungaru, ki mu zdaj kraljuje Giles, med manekenkami res ujela gospo dello Russo (preteklo poletje se je med njih infiltrirala gospa Guinness, Giles x Cutler&Gross Scooby očal pa Anna vso sezono ni spravila z nosu). Zdaj pa naj res že naložijo Chanelove fotke, da vidim, s katerim lakom so prav na debelo namazane fufice v tvidu leta 2011.
