HOW SOON IS NOW


Cheap Monday denim jacket, McQ Alexander McQueen shirt, Acne Studios jeans, Celine sunglasses, †morrbracelet and shoes Louis Vuitton

We were having a little spring preview (weather wise) during Fashion Week here in Paris and you could feel and see how desperate and needy people were for it. Suddenly everyone got their carefully-thought-through-winter spring looks and forgot their coats at home. I can´t really say anything because I was one of them. I run to my wardrobe to pick my new McQ razor-blade shirt, which had been waiting for some attention ever since I got it in my last visit to London, cut shorter the sleeves of my denim jacket, put my music on and went for a nice walk around by the Seine river all the way to the Tuileries gardens where we shot these pictures before having a nice fresh mojito in a terrace. (sigh) Spring...


Durante la semana de la moda aquí en París tuvimos una mini-primavera. Se podía ver lo desesperada y necesitada que estaba la gente por un descanso de tanto frio polar. De repente todo el mundo se puso esos looks primaverales tan cuidadosamente pensados durante el invierno y dejaron los abrigos en casa. Realmente no puedo decir nada porque yo era uno de ellos, corrí a ponerme mi nueva camisa de McQ (que llevaba esperando pacientemente a que llegara el buen tiempo y darle un poco de protagonismo), acorté las mangas de la chaqueta vaquera, me puse música y me fui dando un paseo por el rio Sena hasta los Jardines de Tuileries, donde hicimos estas fotos antes de tomarnos un buen mojito en una terraza. Ah, primavera...

SPRING IN THE HOTHOUSE

Last week, during one of those trips for work to Madrid, a couple of friends and I visited the hothouse at the Botanic Garden. I love that place, I remember the first time I was there. I try to imagine what it would be like to be a bit like a hothouse myself.  To have that peace and that balance within oneself and to keep growing without anything bothering me. Not giving a shit about what is happening out there... Anyway, in there (I mean the hothouse of the pictures) is constantly...

LOUIS VUITTON AW2015

It´s quite hard to express with only a keyboard the way Nicolas Ghesquière overtakes himself each season. He projects the kind of woman that could come from a second parallel Earth, and what better way to confirm what I´m saying than building up something like a spacial station? Nicolas made us travel in time ans space without moving from Paris, and managing that while holding the reins of a house such as Louis Vuitton, whos whole identity is about traveling, is the...

FEATURED IN WOMAN MADAME FIGARO

Today is international Women´s day and stop for a minute and think about the women in my life, in everything I´ve learned from them. Women inspire us so much, they seduce us with their talent and beauty, dazzlr us with their sensitivity, improve any landscape, street or restaurant with their mere presence and, more importantly, give birth to other humans. I´m starting to think it should be their official day every single day. So I wanted to share with you this article from...

SPUTNIK SWEETHEART

This week, this March, is starting quite full on. Maybe because I do wish with all my heart that life surprises me every day, and I try to surprise those around me. It also starts fashion week here in Paris, a window that opens to what will we wear next winter. But what if the coming winter we are not here anymore? What if we disappear? "Sputnik sweetheart" is not exaclty about that, but it is one of the books that have pushed my theory to not to live with the peace of...
