Almost There! - Pascal's Movember


pascal


As you know, my BF and I are sustaining Movember this year. Look at his moustache! Gorgeous! "I look like a porn star from the '80s" he says. Well, the new style's working: at the office people started to ask him why he changed his look and one colleague decided to join the Movember action. 
To all the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas out there: 
Hold on! You're almost there!

Following the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Zurich for the CdT



Following the most important fashion show of the country for a newspaper was definitely a dream come true. That's what happenend to me last week at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Zurich (don't know if you remember but I went to work there as a dresser years ago, when the event was still called Charles Vogele Fashion Days). 
Since my priority was to write for the Corriere del Ticino, I did not want to "steal the spotlight" and chose not to publish anything on my own blog first. 
However, since I made some pictures of the opening show, which was starring Max Mara (which desappointed because instead of the new S/S 15 collection showed in Milan in September, they proposed their current F/W 14-15 collection again), Lala Berlin (fresh, light and feminine), Julian Zigerli (crazy, pop and colorful menswear), Lug von Siga (sexy and funky modern boho), and Bibhu Mohapatra (almost artistocratic, with, here and there, some modern and ethnic touches)I will post here the link to the article that was published on both the paper and its online page today and, of course, I will now share some of my own pictures from the show. 
In the video, my favorite show of the evening, namely the one by the young brand Lug von Siga.

Hello Sexyness!

Embracing sexyness by wearing lace, transparencies and pieces that let you play with your imagination: that's something I enjoy about being a woman. Adding a luxurious skin (read massage) oil to the package is what I like about being in a relationship ;)! 
And now, candle light please!

Ready Steady Movember




I didn't think it was possible, 
but I am actually jealous of anybody who will be able to grow a moustache this November.
The super cool awarness campaign against prostate and testicular cancer, Movember, is back. And so will be the testosteronic moustaches on the mature faces of conscious men all around the world. 
That's probably one of the - hopefully - last traces of my Oedipus complex (my dad has a moustache), but I kinda like "bros" with hairy faces.
I'll see you in Nov..., sorry, Movember guys ;)!

The "mo bro" code:

1.Once signed up at movember.com, every "mo bro" has to begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face.
2.For the entire month of Movember a "mo bro" must grow and groom a moustache.
3. Don't fake it. No beards, no goatees, not fake moustaches.
4. Use the power of the moustache to create conversations about men's health and to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer.
5. Each "mo bro" must conduct himself like a true gentleman...

Psst! Women can support the Movember cause too! I just signed up as a Mo sista!

YSL: The One and Only in Two Different Movies




Yves Saint Laurent: one big artist, two different biographical productions launched within a year.
Oh la la! 
Watched the first. I still have to watch the one lauched in the trailer above.  And I kinda have to, since only the first one officially got the green light from Saint Laurent's life partner Pierre Bergé. Ah, holy curiosity!

The iPhone Diary

If you think about it, there's no better diary than our smart phones. 

 We capture whatever gives us an emotion into pictures and then edit those images through apps so that they can mirror even better what we were feeling at the moment we took the picture. 
The human mind functions, thinks and understands the world around it in images. This makes pictures the most immediate codex we can use to communicate. 
 No wonder that we treasure so much the pictures we keep in our smartphones then. I even know people who take pictures of old printed pictures to keep them in their cell phones too. 

I had a look at the picts in my iPhone and sorted out those made in the last months that I like the most to share them with you. I "discovered" that I am much of a flower person and that I definitely have a thing for fluffy clouds and suggestive skies. And then of course there is the love for fashion details (some of the pictures above are from a fashion show in Lugano by Addy van den Krommenacker) even though I haven't been taking so many pictures of my outfits and I haven't been very selfie-obsessed either lately. 

What do you have in your smartphone? It could tell a lot about you.
