“I think perfection is ugly.
Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.”

At Christian Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Couture show, its new creator director, Belgian designer Raf Simons, made his grand debut even before one model walked down the runway. By decorating five grand rooms inside a Parisian mansion with one million real flowers, he was showing how he would bring a fresh and modern approach to the French fashion house. The rooms were covered from floor to ceiling in a solid tapestry of flowers which included blue delphiniums, white orchids, pink peonies and a wide range of colored roses. For the most part, only one type of flower in a single color was used in each room. The blooms were meant to pay homage to Christian Dior’s “Flower Woman” and show us his love and passion for flowers and gardens. Said Simons, the flowers are “almost a metaphor for the collection as a whole.”

“A Matter Of Taste” is an amazing series of conceptual still life made from food, created by award-wining Italian photographer Fulvio Bonavia.



















During her 60 year reign, Queen Elizabeth II’s wardrobe has never lost its youthful and vibrant focus on colour. PANTONE and Leo Burnett London created this limited edition colour guide of the Queen’s ensembles in honour of her Diamond Jubilee. The guide features some of the Queen’s most notable colour choices including Primrose Yellow (the colour of her dress for William and Kate’s wedding last year) or Crystal Blue (her most frequently worn colour group). Pantone noted that perhaps the Queen dresses monochromatically to add a more stately height to her 5’4″ frame.
