La Nouvelle Bourgeoise
Feline and fickle, she’s on the prowl—up and down the bougie boulevards and in and out of the boîtes de nuit. She playfully types Cinéma Gaumont, Champs Elysées, 1973 into her Uber’s destination box, but it protests with null results. Paris never really changes, and neither must you, Françoise. READ MORE

La Pause
Theatrical fantasy and inimitable glamour are offset by blasé nonchalance, and the mood is louche. In an unexpected landscape backdropped by seas of dunes, the essence of an indefatigable iconoclast is restored sporting anything but neutral. READ MORE

Filmed after World War II, Federico Fellini’s acclaimed satire, La Dolce Vita, hints at an exasperated offspring of repressed female expression. Her contemporary: all about contrasts—sharp and soft, playful but pragmatic, blasé and quick-witted at the same time. READ MORE

Hampstead’s Stately Home

Since the 1920s however, its spacious rooms and shady walks have been opened to the public, offering weary urbanites a much needed taste of country life – even if it is only in Zone 2.

They say art reflects life, and in the case of Christian Dior’s upcoming SS21 collection, it appears they might be right. The show, which will be broadcast live from Paris’s Jardin des Tuileries, will aim to reflect the new normal in which we are all living, foregrounding notions of design and wearability through the adaptation of classic Dior silhouettes for the WFH generation.
