Fashion Consuption: I

I was always share between: making the iconic fashion or being the designer’s muse..

 

I decided to wear just one jacket, & make it reversible to my liking.

 

When I heard Catherine Deneuve was making a auction sale of her YSL pieces, I couldn’t help but wonder what would i do with mine, when my day would come, and so I wrote…

One day, when I will be older the only good reason for me to leave my garde-robe, is when I will leave this world. I heard that Elisabeth II (and many other Queens) has a very strict archives of outfits worn: what, when, where.

That always fascinated me, maybe one of the reason I started doing daily photos from my looks. Sometimes I change up to 3 times a day, and most of my outfits are only wore once. Not because I am a fashion victim of consumption, but because everyday is unique.
I wear my “Sunday best” everyday because everyday is a party to celebrated (now Madonna Holiday 1983 running in my head!)


I don’t buy fast fashion, I don’t buy trendy or new. I buy cheap, thrift and find old and forgotten. One’s woman misery is an other one’s joy. YES. I don’t have anything against couture. In fact i love it, and i don’t mind a single bit putting 1000 euros in a hand embellished one of a kind dressed.

What i do mind is putting a 1000 euros in a pants that looks the same as an H&M pants for 10 euros. Both ends of this chains are wrong. We need to live a bit more far from the edges and understand the power of our surrounding environment. Buying local is sooooo important, buying less is also a steppingstone to a more sustainable future.

I don’t like vintage JUST because it’s pretty, I like the vintage state of mind, of “do well, last long, take care and pass it on” . I don’t mind wearing vintage fur, because even tho it’s an animal, it has been dead since 40 years. I will it never buy new, but i would never throw away goods ether.

People in the street may think “she’s a animal killed” but i am a planet saver, because, if your convictions are so strong it make wasting & trashing socially acceptable, then i can’t stand by your side defending animal rights.

I stand for earth first of all, I try to be the flower that blooms in the concrete, i will be the Esmeralda of the cathedrals picking in the market trash, because what i do is not only for myself: it’s to bring sunshine into the street, to make you think twice about the “cover of my book”, to make people familiar and unknown realize money is not the answer.

Don’t worry, be happy. 

If you are in Paris, the dresses will be on diplay at Christie’s Auction House in Paris from 19 to 24th of January.

Looks from New York City

I will never forget all our moments, all the good times growing up, all our NY rides, late night walks in the Village, fake tattooes, al dente pastas, hugs, kisses, travels, bus rides, airport moments everything was always amasing, cause i was with you. My first trip to NYC with out you my daddy and i got the Blues in every street, wish you could be here for late rides around the city and goodnight kisses.

The world we travel is not big enough to tell u.. I love you 24/7, 365.

Our Chrønicles 16007km away is not an easy jøurney, but follow it live on instagram @thechaoschronicles , much more amazing moments to come.

I am enjoying every moment of my 11 days left in New York. Every step is suppose to bring me a step closer from home, but I know since long time my home is right were I’m at. New York your full of magic, art, love, skyscraper, garbedge, people, memories, parks, shops, rats, restaurants, friends, taxis, bikes, delies, room with a view, room with no view, avenues, and so much more.

If Spike Lee what the director of the movie of my life, he would have to me to say “Fuck you” * but here I’m the director so fuck Spike Lee. New York I love you.

* a reference to the “Fuck you” scene of the 25th hour Spike Lee movie, one of my all time favorite.
