Je vous souhaite à toutes et à tous une délicieuse année 2011 !!

Merci d'être toujours là à suivre mes petites futilités "modesques"...et puis en ce début d'année, je tiens aussi à avoir une petite pensée :

- Pour toutes ces femmes qui par soumission et non par conviction portent le voile, ces mêmes femmes dont la liberté est terriblement bafouée !

- Pour tous ces malheureux petits enfants qui ne connaitront jamais l'insouciance et le bonheur qu'ont nos enfants, se retrouvant à travailler dès leur plus jeune âge dans des usines de textiles ou autres...

Pensons à eux, nous qui sommes de grands privilégiés, que cette nouvelle année leur apportent plus de joie et de sérénité !

Et pour bien commencer l'année voici un calendrier très scintillant tiré du Magazine Bazaar Espagnol avec la divine Sheila Marquez parée de cristaux Swarovski !

Antonio Marras - Spring Summer 2011 Full Fashion Show (Exclusive)

Antonio Marras: Spring / Summer 2011 collection from Milan Fashion Week

Spring 2011 Antonio Maras

24 September Paris

Antonio Marras is Milan fashion's romantic poet, so there was a perfect synchronicity in his latest inspiration: Bright Star, Jane Campion's movie about the doomed romance between John Keats and Fanny Brawne. As limpidly gorgeous as that film was, Marras saw it and raised it 20. One of his favorite scenes shows Fanny and her sister releasing a butterfly, so his invitation was a box of butterflies. And 40 models walked through clouds of paper butterflies for his finale, wearing outfits reconfigured from old aprons with lace and embroidery. They were unique pieces from Laboratorio, Marras' "couture" studio, but it looked like just as much work had gone into everything else on the runway.

That's because Marras is such a great collagist, stitching together not just fabrics but times and places. And with fashion taking a turn for the romantic, his magpie vision has rarely looked better. Case in point: Keats being English and male (however intensely consumptive), Marras took a cue or two from British menswear traditions, in particular the trenchcoat. But he sliced off sleeves, added floral inserts, and tacked on a lace hem, so the trench became an entirely personal statement. It was the same with his prints. Gardens are blooming all over Milan's catwalks, but Marras layered roses, wrapped a floral apron over a flowing white dress, shirred a vintage bathing suit from blooms…and then paraded a chiffon shift of poppies that was surely the ravishing last word on the trend.

Marras gets the past in an instinctive way that few other designers can match. But he is much too canny for simple historicism. This collection also included silver flip-flops, a graphic black-and-white cropped jacket over one of those shirred bathing suits, and a pleated black waistcoat decorated with handfuls of coq feathers. They were just some of the stand-alone pieces that attested to this designer's grasp of an easy, modern glamour.
