Romantically caught between childhood memories and his current, cinematic perception of style, Karl Lagerfeld presented his Chanel Spring/Summer 2019 resort collection using an impressive 1930s cruise liner (named La Pausa after Coco Chanel’s villa on the Cote d’ Azur), which took one month to build. Nautical clothes, wave-inspired gowns, lifebuoy bags, funky Mary Janes and countless more retrograde and contemporary creations brought Karl’s vision to life in Paris’s Grand Palais. “With boats there is always a feeling of loss and departure” Karl said, giving us a subtle hint of his intention to leave the past behind and push his craft forward.
Known for his innovative way of thinking and creating, on May 10th Tom Ford hosted an immersive Private Blend party at the Time Museum in Beijing. Over 200 VIP guests had the chance to indulge in an olfactory experience, while discovering the arousing depths of the Tom Ford Private Blend Fabulous Fragrance.
The collection features sixteen gender-fluid scents, all based on expensive (some on extremely rare too) ingredients. Fragrance connoisseurs around the globe already love it, as it manages to express individuality in a complex yet relatable fashion.
As Tom Ford put it himself, Private Blend is his own scent laboratory. The place where he’s allowed to create unconventional fragrances, against mainstream norms and social constraints.
