LEAVES ARE FALLING, FALLING

Pair a sweatshirt with sequins and strappy sandals like Giovanna Battaglia or keep warm in a fuzzy mohair coat the colour of dusk. Place a pretty clip in your hair and channel Céline at Paris Spring 2015, or step out in an eternally chic trench. Wear head-to-toe herringbone draped in faux fur for an afternoon in the English countryside. Whatever strikes your fancy, embrace these blustery autumn days before the winter comes again . . .

Deep into the thoughtless hypnotism of TikTok one afternoon, I came upon an anonymous urban scene from inside a residential tower in Manchester, England. On an upper floor, beside huge windows shrouded in fog, a man was floating on his back in a gleaming pool, to the soundtrack of the plaintive Frank Ocean song “White Ferrari.” The ten-second video was hashtagged #vibin. In another clip, a woman demonstrated her morning routine, with shots of rumpled linen bedsheets, navy-blue satin pajamas, and a steaming mug of matcha, along with brief glimpses of other objects: a monstera plant, a burning chunk of palo santo, a busy street outside. Altogether, they evoked a mood of calm, enlightened, prettified productivity. The video was hashtagged #vibes

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

RANDOMLY CAME across a Pinterest board last week entitled “Beautiful Women”. The man whose board it was had been diligently collecting busty blondes and me. It was a mildly amusing, slightly strange discovery to say the least. It’s the early May bank holiday weekend here, and while we’re being more lounge-y than normal for a Monday, we’re back at work for at least part of the day …

Watch: Robert Pattinson for Dior & the House’s History of Captivating Perfume Ads

The director applied many of her signature filmmaking techniques to these commercials, including plenty of pastel colours, hip soundtracks and languid camera movements.

‘Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.’ This popular quip, often misattributed to Oscar Wilde, appears without any apparent irony in self-help books and blog posts celebrating authenticity. Understandably, they take the dictum to ‘be oneself’ as a worthy, nearly unassailable goal. Our culture is saturated with authenticity: we’re forever ‘finding ourselves’, ‘self-actualising’, ‘doing you’, ‘being real’, ‘going off the beaten path’, ‘breaking free of the crowd’. We spend our youth trying to figure out who we are; our later years trying to stay true to ourselves; and the time in-between in crisis about whether we are who we thought we were.

Styling Inspiration from Cinema

Since this past month we’ve been in lockdown here in Paris and had an early curfew, I took the time at home to go through some of my favourite movies again and to discover some new ones. There are many films out there that offer perfect styling inspiration and I wanted to share a few of them here.
