PFW 2013: Paris Blues

Although not in Paris, Anthoropometrie sans titre (ANT 84), 1960, Yves Klein, painted in Blue that closely resembled the Lapis Lazuli, now famously called the International Klein Blue (IKB). I saw this painting exhibited at the Musee D'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC) in Nice. Yves Klein was born in Nice, France and became one of the famous French contemporary artist in the World after the post Impressionism period.

Blue is my favourite colour. I am just attracted to anything Blue. When I look into my closet, all I see are different shades of blue in my clothes, bags and shoes. Even when I shop, I unconsciously buy something blue first before I pick another colour. It was just right timing that the Turner Classic Movies Channel presented the other day the Classic 1961 American Film Paris Blues starring Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier. Both Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier played the part of expat American Musicians who fell in love with two visiting American women in Paris. The film also starred famous musician Louis Armstrong and the musical score was composed by Duke Ellington.  The movie was a combination of love story, Jazz/Blues music and of course the charms of Paris. It is a great movie to watch. For now, here are some inspiring Blues from the Paris Collections. Paris Fashion Week For Fall 2013 begins this week.

Dior Spring 2013 Print Campaign.
The Dior Spring 2013 Collection is now designed by Raf Simons. I find the Dior Collections now so pure, has a clean silhouette, more focused on the clothes and wearable. The ideas and talent of Raf Simons are evident in their Print Campaigns which are just so inspiring and beautiful.
