Here, the fashion week started in New York… But patience we will have to wait a few days to discover new trends to adopt! From February 2 to 9, Big Apple welcomes designers, fashionatas, the stars and all those belonging to the fashion world. The international press is on a war footing to cover this great annual fashion Mass.
New York is it not the place for this kind of event? Vivier and cultural source of trends, this city is in perpetual motion, on the lookout for anything that is in the forefront, open to young designers, keen on “French touch”, it is essential and demanding.
New York is really perceived as the city of all dreams, all passions, all the adventures. His image is nevertheless complex paradoxical view … made a multitude of life, backgrounds, communities, places and specific atmospheres…
Great movements, patterns, innovations are born and thrive here. This is why many French designers have felt that American land called. The world of the success belongs to those who believe and who gives way to do… Ah American dream when you hold us…
Coco Chanel, Catherine Malandrino have dreamed, others have done: Christiane Celle, Laura Mercier are the first to cross the Atlantic and it was a success! Christiane Celle has made a name 15 years ago by the New York dream with her hippie chic cruise line. Since it opened more than 25 stores worldwide.
Second, we all know: make-up artist to the stars, which is a leading authority in the field of make-up around the world, his thirty-year career as a professional makeup artist made him exercise his talents in all corners the globe but especially in the prestigious photographic studios, on the red carpet for film… and it is in New York she found the opportunity to create her own line of cosmetics there of it 10 years. A success which is true even today!
The latest darling of the trendy New York is a small Frenchie just arrived… The young designer Alice Ritter arrived indeed there ten years the Usa. After a rather traditional French family where success comes down to being a doctor or lawyer, the young woman still follows his love for fashion she discovered in Vogue and in the trunk of his grandmother full of corsets, petticoats, etc… Alice Ritter conducts business studies in Paris, but the passion for fashion is always present…
She cuts the antique flea clothes to see how they are sewn, she read everything she could find on the subject and take classes in drawing and modeling evening. Then decided to try his luck in New York, she designed some pieces for a Brooklyn store, they are sold in just two days!
This is the beginning of glory: It sells its collections at Barney’s and Chez Colette in Paris and travels to New York… Or her feminine and romantic style is more and more followers! Ritter said “love clothes that have in mind with some touch of humor…” adopted New Yorkers, these women do not work unless “French”. And it is this French Touch makes the difference.
Now speak of those that make us dream through Sex and The City: The New Yorkers! We do not know very well if you have to admire them or laugh… Still each of us is more or less already dreamed in Carrie Bradshaw…
So let’s go for clichés: the New Yorker obsessed with material success but cerebral, but feminine feminist, liberated but full of taboos, but gregarious self. A woman who does not hesitate to take extreme measures to find the ideal man. If you think the West is neurotic, then no doubt the New Yorker is terminally! Uh not so far from the truth if I believe a friend who lives in New York for some years and who is facing these delicious women but you have to learn the operating mode!
On his 31 (read: black skirt varnish heels, small bag in his hand) to the office, she quickly became disillusioned by seeing the New York Women tide in dark tights / tailors pavement Reebok comfortable on the right shoulder an enormous tote, and the left shoulder adorned with a small shoulder bag… Arrive at the office on fire feet and brain boiling, she saw to compliment her outfit with her new colleagues, his bag was the center of interest of the coffee break… but why, when his look aroused so many passions, she was the only dress that way?
She asked them nicely and they told him: “… the New York Times does not fit into the neat little purse, then it is for the large tote; the quaint small handbag weighs down the arm in the metro while the shoulder bag does not bother nor to elbow, or to cling; and the pretty little heels guarantee exorbitant shoe costs and sprained ankles, unlike Reebok comfortable… “Furthermore it is not possible to become work pants and mismatched jacket. The tailor is mandatory when wearing pants…
Uh… that’s not understanding anything. This has been seen as a set of disordered but rational attempts to ensure the maximum possible comfort clothing (sneakers and tote) or as a simple matter of taste (tailors) turns out to be governed by a strict set of rules that a major characteristic: they are most of the time the opposite of European rules!
Above all, they reflect the fundamental paradox of America, especially New York, which now falls within the cliche constantly rehashed by the media: the country pioneering and excess is on the human plan ‘painfully shy, very old-fashioned, inhibited by the issues of the “politically correct”.
But then Carrie Bradshaw in? Intox, the myth of the liberated New York, in a tutu and shoes Manolo all year?
Mystery … but do not forget that she works in fashion and not going to the office which gives it greater freedom of dress! In terms of the New York lambda, I think that Charlotte / Miranda mix would reveal more!
