So while everybody is heading on a well-deserved vacation, the fashion world is not showing any sign of fatigue :). Fashion weeks are on their way, while fashion magazines are preparing their September Issues.
Do you remember the famous documentary about Vogue’s 2007 September Issue?
September in Fashion is like New Year in the normal world :). The fashion weeks for the next Spring/Summer season begin. The Fall Collections are delivered to the stores. And everyone starts to makes projections on the upcoming Christmas Holidays sales trends. It’s an exciting time!

As I announced yesterday, this blog is from now on about music as well. I am a piano player and songwriter myself, so I feel I have a say on what's going on with the music business these days. So here we're gonna talk about and listen to who's hot and who's not on the music arena, nowadays.
I would also like to share with you my daily song picks from a variety of styles, from all around the world:: superhits as well as less-known pieces of music. Well, if you think about it, even Poker Face was once an unknown song.
You can also find a playlist of songs that I like on this blog's Pinterest Page.
So today, my picks are: Kanye West, Adele and Liviu Hodor.
Kanye has always been an inspiration to me. This song is symbolic in my life. It came to me in a very tough period and was near by my side through the hardest times. For a year now it has been my only ringtone. Now the time has come to move on. And as a tribute, here it is once again in one of Kanye's best performances so far.

Karl Lagerfeld has launched a dedicated website for his new brand – Karl. The collection presented previously this year in collaboration with the e-tailer Net-a-Porter is a novelty for the designer. Not that he would be doing something different from what he does his entire life – designing…. The newness consists in the price tag and positioning his new creations display.

It’s spring time! Oh finally! :) And even if we don’t feel it everywhere in the same way (depending whether you’re in Milan or Moscow :)), we’re all enjoying every ray of sun, every new green leave and the springtime windy breeze. Light, colours and smells! The springtime is a truly unique experience!
And you know what? Big fashion brands also feel it! Oh yes, they do! Apparently, they are also inspired by this marvelous time of the year and some of them even decided to delight us with new launches – fresh fragrances’ launches :).
The first one is Gucci, which launched The Flora Garden Collection, made out of 5 springtime juices: Gorgeous Gardenia, Gracious Tuberose, Glamorous Magnolia, Generous Violet and Glorious Mandarin. As Frida Giannini (the brand’s Creative Director) said, this is “a bouquet of scents”. So, each one of us can choose the juice she likes the most. Too bad internet cannot (or at least not yet!) transfer the smells, but judging by the names I would personally go with the Glamorous Magnolia (maybe) :)

What is beauty all about? Have you ever asked yourself? It’s about looking good! Isn’t it?
And when you look good, you feel right! (Please correct me if I’m wrong!)
I know some will say this is such a bull***t. Beauty is an inner feeling and has nothing to do with how you look or how people around you think you look. It’s about feeling good!
And you know what? I think they are right! They are also right!!!

What do you usually expect to see from a Chanel fashion show?
- Innovative fashion? Not really – rather reinvention of an iconic style!
- Innovative show? Absolutely! Always and forever!
So that’s the formula! This time as the last time and many other times in the past and very probably in the future!
At the end of the day that’s what it has to be, right? A Fashion Show! Fashion+Show!
As far as the fashion is concerned this time – it was good but not great, not as great as it could have been!
Karl did what he usually does and what he had to do this time as well – reinvent the brand, once more, make it even more appealing and trendy, keep the super-high-class image of the brand interesting to all the fashionistas from all around the world, Chanel world.
And he did that very well! Beautiful tailleurs, colorful and light chiffon evening dresses, long dark grey coats and of course the little black dresses! Very consistent collection and very commercial I would say!
And that’s what matters at the end of the day! Isn’t it, fashion lovers? :)
