Je m’baladais sur l’avenue
Le coeur ouvert à l’inconnu
J’avais envie de dire bonjour
À n’importe qui
N’importe qui ce fut toi
Je t’ai dit n’importe quoi
Il suffisait de te parler
Pour t’apprivoiser

I truly have to say that I was amazed with the Atelier part of the collection. I want to wear Haute Couture Lingerie, love to feel lush around the house in . Loving the street vibe – bad ass pull ups that are cut like leggings. There is the street with luxury craftsmanship. Perfect. The more elegant pieces also had an edge to it – hoods and a fantastic play on the transparent. Well done for the collection! You can get it at their Flagship store 9, Old Bond Street, London.

In Praise of Slowness-Gstaad and Saanewald Lodge, Come up Slow Down

Leave a comment

Situated in the Berner Oberland, Gstaad is home to one of the largest ski areas in the Alpes.  When you Come up to Gstaad you Slow down. This is the  way I  like to see my time spent there. You run away from the big cities to come here and  really take care of yourself, with good organic food, lots of sports and where you can replenish your lungs with pure mountain air. We challenge to cult of speed here! Gstaad has many beautiful villages that surround it and are equally interesting. One of them is the village of Saanemoser which is home to the lovely Saanenwald Lodge Hotel. The hotel was built in 1963 and acquired by Paul Peyer and his brother in 2011. The owner says that this the place where you can practice  Active Slowlife- a concept that tackles the misunderstanding about Slowness. It forces people to stop and challenge their lifestyle, which is good!

This post is dedicated to people that have not been to this lovely ski resort and not to all my friends and followers that have been coming here since they were born. Please do bear with me the detailed descriptions of certain locations. And the ones that have been here, why not keep on reading , maybe you discover something new.

“Last paradise in a crazy world” is how Hollywood and Broadway star Julie Andrews described her holiday home in Gstaad. Completely agree with this view. In fact no matter how international Gstaad is it has remained truly Alpine. The atmosphere is quiet and discreet and that is precisely what its visitors and residents have come to appreciate. Some of the home owners in Gstaad were/ are Roman Polanski, Sir Roger Moore, Elisabeth Taylor, Jeanne Moreau, Julie Andrews, Bernie Ecclestone, Yehudi Menuhin, Prince Rainer and Grace Kelly,  Balthus, Gunter Sachs. The middle of the village features a cosy picturesque promenade reserved for pedestrian use only bundled by many shops, restaurants, galleries and hotels. I popped in quickly into the multibrand boutique Lorenz Bach to try out some fur hats and coats. This is usually where we would all come to get some traditional laderhosen and Austrian jackets too. It is not only in winter that  Gstaad is a popular destination- there are events such The Menuhin Festival Gstaad of classical music, The Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad of classical music, Swiss Open, The Hublot Polo Gold Cup, Bonhams auction of Ferraris and Maserattis and Davidoff Saveurs Gstaad which is a celebration of authentic kitchen and cellar flavours.

How many times have you asked yourself- why can’t I just roll out of bed and hit the slopes directly from my hotel? Well, here you surely can. You can ski or snowboard straight out of the front door. 220 km of pistes and 53 liftes await you.
Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 16.08.56
I would like to introduce you to a little 60′s gem, hidden in Swiss Alps, located close to the village of Gstaad. http://saanewald-lodge.ch/I dare say-  finally something different to the usual Gstaad glitzy, expensive offering.  A retro mountain lodge with clean lines and a hint of Barbarella.

All girlies wearing Zanzan  sunglasses. The boots are by Ikkii.

Have I talked about the food at the Saanewald Lodge Hotel? It must be the best burger in Gstaad, well apart from the little kiosk on the Promenade. Do make sure you stop here if you are skiing in Saanemoser

And onto the milk maid. Gstaad is one of the world’s leading cheese producers, with nearly 500 varieties available. It comes as no surprise that Swiss national cuisine is based around this delicious dairy product . Raclette  is something I always eat when I come up here , also the cheese fondue and the inoubliable emince de veau a la Zurichoise. Also can we not forget the chocolate. The Swiss produced chocolate.

Gstaad is famous for cattle breeding, milk and meat production. I went to Rossinieres, a village next to Gstaad to see a  farm. I was worried that the  the local farmer would be standoffish but he was very appreciative of our visit.
Etivaz cheese is the local delicacy that I eat the most of when there I make sure I buy a large quantity of it to take back home with me. It has fruity, nutty flavour and it is similar to Gruyere.

I had to stop at the institution as well, the iconic Palace Hotel It was opened in 1913 as Gstaad’s first luxury hotel and since has earned an unrivaled reputation for discreet, refined hospitality.

Katarina Kostic and Flower Company, Belgrade

Leave a comment

Today… in fact to be a little more precise- this morning- a little miracle happened. A pastel bouquet from The Flower Company in Belgrade. The colours radiate harmony and their softness just realigned me by putting a warm smile on my face. Nothing less, nothing more. It was and it is bloody worth it. Flowers are such a simple thing but so important in our daily lives. A quick fix of beauty. Nothing is forever anyway.

The owner, Katarina Kostic is a striking and talented woman. After many years engulfed in the world of marketing and communications she wanted to give a voice to her very lively creative side. Ignoring the usual cliche of finding her “new self” in the role of yet another fashion designer she decided to pair up her creativity with the love of nature. After obtaining the certificate from the world famous flower design school McQueen Flowers in London we now get to purchase some of that talent too in the heart of Belgrade. On your marks, ready, set… gooooooo….as we have the Sveti Nikola slava tomorrow …hurry before all the flowers make their way out of the cooling cave. And do not forget to wake up each day…to a new bouquet.

Who is afraid of Virginia Wolf by Edward Albee

Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 23.14.04
A great play by Edward Albee that is unmissable and immortalised as well by Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton on the silver screen. It gives us a sneak peak into one night of a middle aged couple whose marriage is not going well by all means. The alcohol on this particular night does not help either it just inflames the issues at hand. A young couple is invited to their home and I am sure they regretted it the day after and not only because of the hangover.

Quotes: Martha: I swear, if you existed, I’d divorce you.

Nick: Who did the painting?
George: Some Greek with a moustache that Martha attacked one night.

George: You can sit around with the gin running out of your mouth; you can humiliate me; you can tear me to pieces all night, that’s perfectly okay, that’s all right.
Martha: You can stand it!
George: I cannot stand it!
Martha: You can stand it, you married me for it!

George: Martha, in my mind you’re buried in cement right up to the neck. No, up to the nose, it’s much quieter.

Martha: Well, you’re going bald.
George: So are you.

To this day one of my favourite reads….the story each and everyone of us had- the story of our first love. It starts by a couple of middle aged guests at a party remembering their first loves and when it is the protagonist’s Vladimir Petrovich time to tell his he promises to tell it by writing it down. It is a sad story as his love was never returned- even though he believed that the feeling was mutual. A quick read and another wonderful work of a Russian master.

He perhaps was lucky not to survive and see the degradation of Belgrade due to the years of war and the negative aftermath this created culturally. He studied a couple of semesters at Beaux Arts in Paris in the class of Vladimir Velickovic . Jean Marc Barr made a film “Lovers” about his life in Paris starring  Elodie Bouchez and Sergej Trifunovic. He aslso lived and worked in New York where he exhibited his work.

On being a female dandy….Lou Salome

Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 13.35.27

Certain women use their intelligence for their flirtation. Upon meeting her Friedrich Nietzsche said: “From which stars did we fall to meet each other here?”. Liliana Cavani’s film Beyond Good and Evil (1977) was inspired by their relationship and is a must Russian-German novelist, essayist, psychoanalyst, and a muse, colleague, and companion for such authors and thinkers as Nietzsche, Rilke, and Freud. Lou Andreas-Salomé wrote widely on literature criticism, philosophy and psychoanalysis. With her indifference to moral conventions and insatiable intellectual curiosity, Andreas-Salomé challenged the gender roles of her day. She was one of the first female psychoanalysts to write on female sexuality, in fact she wrote her book Die Erotik  before she met Freud with whom she developed a close relationship. Freud said of her that she was “a woman of dangerous intelligence” but that “all the tracks around her go into the Lion’s den but none come out.”
