Chanel Boulevard Spring 2015


 


The 'Chanel Boulevard'
I yawn season after season as Karl Lagerfeld creates these 'new and exciting' collections with supermodel faces walking for the opening and finale of the set runway.
And yet, as this season of Spring 2015 approached today for the House of Chanel, I did not see the Feminism call out as an awareness but more of a new trend and idea to put out in a fashion show.
However much lack of pearls and attention to diamonds and sparkly brooches I saw today, something grabbed my attention to these detailed garments.
The sailor inspired navy and white outfits stood out for me instantly, maybe Lagerfeld is slowly going back to the originality and essence of the Classic design that Chanel once was.

After six years of Gemma Ward quitting her role as a model on New York Runways and Christian Dior advertisements, she has returned by opening the showcase of Prada's Resort Collection for the upcoming year.

Gemma has always been a favourite of mine as she bloomed in 2005, she was the first lady I took an eye to that works as a model in the fashion industry.
In the time during her retirement, Gemma has been featured in a few films, such as The Great Gatsby.

It is a miracle that this beauty has returned, and without a Chanel tennis racket on her shoulder.

Monumental Junkyard:

Monumental Junkyard: Named by the accusation of the Lewis Glucksman Gallery dumping marble doors outside in Ireland. These materials used were reproduced in Chinese Marble, that continues to be used in kitsch interior décor, lifted back from the renaissance sculpture.

'The reproduction of wasted domestic doors in marble responds to issues of regeneration and historical-preservation, material and symbolic value, and the ambiguity of contexts as part of affluent consumerist society.'

Tate Modern in the Spring.







Don't you love visiting the places you wondered around when you were young? The Tate was the place to be with my mama, always seeing new installations, always looking at The Snail by Matisse.

I took a revisit with a few friends and my lovely Fujica, to browse the rooms of the old power station.
Finding William Eggleston and Dan Flavin on the way.
