If you don’t have the Ovation network, and you can get it, I highly recommend this channel as it has great programming specific to the arts, fashion et al. More specifically, you get to see Anna Wintour’s approach in working with young budding designers on this show. The season premiere happened yesterday and had a more insider and technical feel than Project Runway. That show had some detractors that specifically targeted the over-the-top reality show feel (a by-product of direction and production). This show features less of that so it may appeal to a bit of a different audience. Season 2 started yesterday November 5th and runs all the way to the final. Vogue this month has a feature on the talent appearing on the show. See it here.

The oversized coat is beautiful and should any of the readers out there know the designer, let us know and we’ll publish the name. The sunglasses though are unmistakeable Sunday Somewhere. The Australian accessories house is a mainstay for Hollywood starlets and Olivia Wilde is no exception. Here’s she’s seen on the streets of NYC donning the shades.

Manish Arora Opens Store in Paris

Manish Arora Opens Store in Paris

Manish Arora has decided after planting roots in Paris that his flagship store should be located there as well. With his mix of multi-color pieces and elaborate prints, Arora will feel at home on Rouget de’l’Isile

Here’s the full release:

The colorful and joyous love story between Manish Arora and Paris began in 2007 with momentous runway shows that, beyond business, aim at restoring optimism and lightness to the down-and-out fashion public.

Beyond the runways and the Fédération française de la Couture, du Prêt à Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode where he is a member, Paris has also become his second home, 10000 kilometers away from languid New Delhi and its incredible craftsmanship, an integral part of the brand. It was therefore natural for ManishArora to open his first flagship in Paris, after the presentation of his Spring-Summer 2015 collection.

In just a few seasons, the Indian designer has wooed a demanding public looking to distinguish itself. After the success of his Galeries Lafayette corner and of the Galerie Joyce pop-up shop in 2013, Manish Arora has decided to take this new step and welcome his clients into his own world.

Located at 5 rue Rouget-de-L’Isle, between the Tuileries garden and rue Saint-Honoré, in an area reputed for its exclusive addresses and a stone’s throw away from most Parisian palaces, the Manish Arora boutique is conceived as a natural extension to his Parisian home, with its colored glass panels, the pink and gold that sign all this collections, all distilled in-store on furniture, fittings and displays.

The store was imagined by the Milan-Paris based studio Riccardo Haiat (www.riccardohaiat.com), whose business focuses in the conception of boutiques, restaurants and apartments. The architect wanted to combine the strong and coloured univers of manish arora with a pure and elegant touch that well integrates the Parisian context of the rue de Rivoli.

With its two street-facing windows, and its 130 square meters, the boutique features dual spaces of beautiful volumes. Facing the street, there will be Manish Arora’s ready-to-wear, his accessories and selected pieces from his Indian by Manish Arora collection (until then exclusive to the Indian market), as well as a curated selection of his favorite items: Varanasi toys or artwork, small trinkets or unique pieces, temptations of the day or of a lifetime.

At the back, the space will be dedicated to exhibitions, showroom presentation and private events, in relation with the enchanted world of Manish Arora.

By combining retail and exhibition spaces, Manish Arora will fully inhabit this location, marking it fully as his Parisian headquarters.

Information :
Address : 5 rue Rouget-de-l’Isle 75001 paris
Open from monday to saturday :
monday 2pm-7pm
tuesday to saturday 11pm-7pm

Another recent shoot published on Papierdoll. This one featured models wearing basics from the likes of H&M. That coupled with very little make-up set the tone for a good fall foto story. View all the images here.

When done right, the accordion dress is a timeless classic, especially when matched appropriately with the metallic peep-toe slingbacks.

Belusso Resort - Miami Swim 2015

Belusso Resort – Miami Swim 2015

Was asked recently if we were at the Miami Swim 2015 shows, yes we were. We sort of embargoed coverage for print (photos can be so much more beautiful in gloss). But we’ll be publishing some musings, reviews and photographs from the swim season that was in Miami. (pictured above, Belusso Resort Spring 2015 collection)
