When we see people who look young for their age, we quickly say it’s because they have good genes.
Suffering for fashion through killer heels can cause serious ankle sprains and breaks, stretched ligaments and tendons, and deformities like hammer toes and bunions (eww!). Did you know Victoria Beckham, who won’t be seen with anything less than four-inch heels, recently had bunion surgery? Double eww!
Since its creation in 1854, Louis Vuitton has maintained a close relation with the world of art. Through Marc Jacobs’ artistic direction, the luxury brand associates itself with the first exhibition dedicated to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
One of the things I love about fashion is its dynamism—the intense mix of creativity, glamor, marketing and business, all these playing off each other. As Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Fashion is not for everyone. It is ephemeral and fleeting.”
In old Filipino society, bayanihan is displayed in the tradition of neighbors helping a relocating family by getting enough volunteers to carry the whole house, and literally moving it to its new location. They do this by placing long bamboo poles lengthwise and crosswise under the house (traditional Filipino houses were built on stilts), and then carrying the house on this bamboo frame. It takes a fairly large number of people—often 20 or more—working together to carry the entire house. All this is done in a happy and festive mood. At the end of the day, the moving family expresses its gratitude by hosting a small feast for everyone.
While models and celebrities dazzle with perfection, sometimes it’s nice to get style inspiration from people who do not depend on a posse of fashion experts to make them look awesome.
