LUNATICAlounge, Montezuma, Costa Rica

LUNATICA lounge is a stunning luxury property with a magical setting. I love its modern and white architecture and the wild nature all around it. I wouldn’t mind renting it for a week or two !

Lounge Eiffel is now open !

LOUNGE EIFFEL is a freshly opened ‘pop-up’ restaurant on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tour. It’s a unique and modern place with the best view over all Paris. It’s worth a try, even just for a cocktail in the bar, since the prices are a lot more affordable than in Jules Verne. I’ll let you know how it was if I get to find someone to bring me there… what a great occasion to dress up in an exceptional place.

In the memory of Oscar Niemeyer

The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer died today at the age of 104 years. He was known for his modern and curvy style and for being the architect who gave Brasilia its flair. Niemeyer was an architectural genius if I may say so myself !

In Niemeyer’s words: “It is important that the architect think not only of architecture but of how architecture can solve the problems of the world. The architect’s role is to fight for a better world, where he can produce an architecture that serves everyone and not just a group of privileged people.”

Balenciaga has picked Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang is about to take the reigns of Balenciaga. His name had been circulating for a while already as a possible successor to the postion of creative director.
Wang has got a very commerciale side to him and he’s style is a lot more street wise than Nicolas Ghesquière’s.
So is it a surprise ? Not really ? Will he be able to do what Nicolas Ghesquière did ? Not so sure… The future of Balenciaga is probably going to be a less elitist one. I guess the plan is to get out to a broader audience than what they did during the years with Ghesquière.
