Barbizon, petit village de peintres et la foret de Fontainbleau, France

Leave a comment

I wanted to go for a saturday run in the forest of Fontainbleau located 50 km from Paris and discovered the most charming French village Barbizon. This quiet village of north -central France became famous because of the pre-impressionist painters that made it their home, notably Theodore Rousseau and Jean Francois Millet. The art movement in 1850 that was focused on realism in art was named after this incredible little village and now we have the world famous- Barbizon school of painters. Of course no excursion would be complete without the very important gastronomic factor. I ate so well at the “Le Gaulois sur le Grill” that I am still fantasizing about the meal. The meal was very simple and we know that it is the most difficult to make simple things taste good. Half a roasted chicken with morel mushroom sauce and a fondant au chocolat that can not compare to any I have tried so far. Pure bliss – a day for not only visual hedonism. Of course the running gear was Nike shoes, Gap sweatshirt and leggings, Moncler jacket and Persol sunglasses.

Boccaccio’70- Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio by Federico Fellini (1962) restored by Dolce&Gabbana @ Rome Film Festival

Leave a comment


During the Rome Film Festival I was invited by Dolce & Gabbana to the screening of the Federico Fellini film they restored to perfection. Boccacio ’70 is an Italian anthology of four episodes each shot by a different director from an idea by Cesare Zavattini. The theme that unites all four films is the different aspects of morality and love in modern times in the style of the Italian Renaissance author Boccaccio. I had the pleasure of seeing The temptation of Doctor Antonio shot by Fellini. It was magical watching Anita Ekberg in vivid colours on the big screen – and don’t forget ….bevete piu late! Have a look at these two short extract of the film here

Regarding my outfit – I was inspired by the film Malena and the quintessential Dolce & Gabbana woman. Think Sicily, think Monica, think churches, think veils, think Semana Santa, think celebration of femininity….but a bit more daring. Let’s say ….that woman but X-rayed! Needless to say that it is a total Dolce & Gabbana look including the 50′s style sous- vetements. After the screening I was whisked off to the Dolce&Gabbana and Vanity Fair dinner at Villa Medici. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Escapade a short film by Pierre Frey- watch it- it’s perfect

Leave a comment

La Maison Pierre Frey presents a short film directed by Martial Schmeltz.

A Parisian couple escaped from their daily routine by providing a wild night in baroque and sensual decors dressed by Pierre Frey. On the other side of the curtain, appearances are deceptive….

On the occasion of the renovation of the famous Hotel Costes by Jacques Garcia whose rooms are now fully upholstered with fabrics by Pierre Frey and Braquenié, la Maison Pierre Frey presents with Martial Schmeltz a short film that invites you to discover from the inside many of these high places* from the Parisian night life dressed in his creations. It gives pride to the decors, real actors of the film, whose presence sometimes haunting, sometimes romantic or exotic raises paradoxical feelings in this genuine couple looking for passionate adventure.

One of my favourtie films- L’appartement with Vincent Cassel adn Monica Bellucci

It’s only the sound of the phone ringing
It’s only your silent voice singing
It’s only the darkness bringing memories of you
It’s only the first double meaning
It’s only the second hand dealing
It’s only you carefully stealing pieces of me

Don’t wake me up

“Le roi et l’oiseau” cartoon, master piece of Paul Grimault and Jacques Prevert is back

Leave a comment

Back since the 1980′s. Another favourite cartoon of mine. Poetic, touching…and the universe that was created back then is still actual, still relevant, still inspiring. At the moment you can see it in Paris in a couple of the cinemas or just buy the DVD.
