Modern Frida. Celine SS15


Phoebe Philo of Celine always does unexpected. After furry birkenstocks, orange muffs and Brassai inspired silhouettes, now it’s the time for… the modern woman. Celine’s modern woman reminds Frida Kahlo- strong, brave, provocative. She feminine, but wears masculine trousers and coats. She likes fringes, but without madness. She thinks colours, but tones them with black and white. She knows herself well, and knows what to cover and what to uncover. In other words, the SS15 collection is mix of everything Philo achieved up to now. We had some 60’s floras, we had long dress, we had trousers that in reality became skirts. And the new IT bag- the Curve. It’s sharp and architectural. Just like the cut-out tops with circle that exposed shoulders. But also, there was one thing I totally didn’t understand- the swiss cow bells worn as necklaces. I seriously don’t get it. But well, some things are getting more clear after sometime. That was surely one of the most experimental collection by Celine. But it truly explained the Celine woman.

The Inle Lake in Myanmar is the biggest ethnic mixture of beautiful people. It’s my last destination in Burma before Singapore and I am really overwhelmed. All people here are so happy, always with a smile! Women dress only in colours, with big amount jewellery and scarves (look at the Karen and Pao tribe!). Men do everything with joy, without hurry… And children are so cute! And funniest kid on Earth was the one with bamboo cages- he shouted “Bamboo, Bamboo!” and at the end threw both of them into water. Then he sat down, and put his finger into his nose. It made my laugh so much! Thank you Burma for beautiful time, and hope to see you soon!

The biggest lake in Myanmar is called the Inle Lake (22 km of length). It’s known for a very specific feature that it literally contains- here, you may observe the life style of inhabitants- the “Inthas” or “Sons of Lake” who live in the middle of the lake. Also, the unique style of fishermen rowing the boat by standing and rolling one leg around the paddle while holding their traditional cone shape fishing basket. This looks really amazing. We also visited the huge floating farms that looked totally like from Sci-Fi movies… that grew tomatoes and beans (that are really good). On the way, there was aslo a remarkable factory were the scarves are knitted out of lotus and silk… This type of production can be found only here! 20140213-064037 PM.jpg20140213-064048 PM.jpg20140213-064053 PM.jpg20140213-064111 PM.jpg

Myanmar: BAGAN

20140212-050233 PM.jpg
For these few days (as you may notice because of my blog absence) I was in Bagan- the town in the centre of Myanmar. It’s known for the 3000 pagodas that are spread all around the place. To see the city in it’s whole beauty, we had to fly up with a hot air balloon- the flight together with British pilots was a experience to remember for whole life! Later, we saw around 15 pagodas and temples that have so strange names, that would be a non-sense to list them all. Although, one of them- Ananda Temple- definitely showed off most with it’s beautiful Burmese architecture and four huge Buddhas. Although Bagan is very beautiful and silent, I must admit all these pagodas make my head burn. And temples/monasteries! All made from tick or brick. And most of them look pretty same, keeping it’s adorable peace. But- still, this amazing architecture and atmosphere can be met only here! 20140212-050336 PM.jpg20140212-050608 PM.jpg20140212-050628 PM.jpg20140212-050621 PM.jpg20140212-050636 PM.jpg
