KIMYE ON THE COVER OF VOGUE

"There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.” - Anna Wintour



To each day his story, today it's Kim Kardashian and Kanye West being on the cover of Vogue.

We all know that a Vogue cover is something that Kim has been wanting and trying to get for a long time now and as she tweeted her dream became true. 
If you're on Twitter you also know that this was today's hot topic. Some people are baffled, some hate it, some like it, some want to frame it but everyone is talking about it. (let's say 80% of Twitter)

The position that I saw the most on my timeline is the "what did you do Anna Wintour, now sextape stars are on your cover don't you know that you run Vogue and that you just ruined it?" one.

My personal position is "nice play". This cover is as much a win for Vogue as it is for KimYe.

CHANEL SHOPPING CENTER

"The medium is the message" - Marshall McLuhan


For the presentation of the F/W 2014-15, Stefan Lubrina - who has worked as a metteur en scène for Chanel for the past 20 years - recreated an entire supermarket in le Grand Palais called CHANEL SHOPPING CENTER.
The quote up there is a flashback from my communication classes that came to me as soon as I saw it.


The effort and attention to detail that went into setting up this very special runway is mind blowing (which is why this article is photo-heavy) and very inspiring. The packaging, the banners and displays all have that Coco Chanel touch with names such as "Boîtes à Bobos de Coco" for a first aid kit, "Coco Carbone" and so on. I also love the fact that the baskets are wrapped in chains very similar to the ones on the classic Chanel quilted handbag.
