Défilé Yumi Katsura by Ji Haye 2010

I consider myself as a very lucky person…

And in fact yesterday I lived on of the bet moments so far in Paris… almost without thinking about it I was assisting to Yumi Katsura défilé on the Westin Hotel. Invited by a friend who work on the industry I had access to the backstage and I felt as a little girl looking at a very different world… models were almost to go in the catwalk and everthing was ready to start.

I came back to my chair and when the show started  I found myself excruting every little detail on the dresses… the theme was “Enchanted forest” so we could see lots of flowers, butterflies, leaves, textures and colors that gave as a fresh air of nature.

Then again in the backstage, my friend tells Ji Haye (the designer) I was an artisan ( I was shaking as crazy) and she told me: “artisan are never sad, it’s necesary to move your hands to clear your mind”… beautiful words I will have with me for life….

A step before spring

Good and gray morning…

To put a bit of light to this greyish day I’ll show you the palette suggested by Pantone for next Spring-Summer season..

You can download the .pdf file on their site http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20694&ca=4

Here a resume of the colors…

1. Amparo Blue ( a bit brighter than navy blue)

2. Turquoise (very summer and lovely for the beach)

3. Violet (in a pale version, super chic)

4. Aurora ( a yellow slightly green)

5.Fusion Coral (i think this is goign to be my favorite)

6. Tomato Purée (they suggest to combine it with turquoise to get a retro look and I agree and love the combination!)

7.Pink Champagne (i’ve been using it in my collections and it’s very well accepted)

8. Tuscany ( combined with violet…super cool)

9. Dried herb (one of the neutrals I’ve been also using so far)

10. Eucalyptus (a gray with a touch of green, the other neutral to be worn when we have got enough sun to be proud of our tanned skin:))

So, what do you think about it? Comment and tell me which one do you prefer!!

************************************************************************************************

And just to get a fresh air on this winter… I have made this clutch bag in wild silk (very rusty indeed) mixed with acrylic in the same palette and with little touches of primary colors (that came in the yarn) and until this moment I didn’t have any idea of where to put it…but I think in this bag is perfect and looks great!

  • Geometry
    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
