The Year of Come Backs: Lara Fabian

Lara Fabian

There must be something in the stars with the year 2008. Not just Cyndi Lauper, Paula Abdul and SMiLe.dk, but Lara Fabian has decided it’s time to sing again. New classical-inspired pop album is to be released by the end of the year. The album is recorded entirely in Qubec and as for song choice, quoting Fabian; “ I’ve never sung these kinds of songs, certainly not in an entire album and not in this kind of arrangement…” I pray that it won’t be one of those techno-disco albums… We already have Madonna, Kylie and Britney.

A fan meet & greet is set to be held in Belgium in October and then Paris.

Below is a clip of Fabian performing Je Suis Malade live

Hermès fall/winter 2008: Herb Tea with a Twist

I can feel the stress of Veronique Nichanian every season when I look at Hermès male line. When compared to its other half, “bad boy” Jean Paul Gaultier, Nichanian is like the big sister who can’t cross the line especially because Hermès has got to remain classy. Even she can use the world’s most extortionate fabrics and materials, Nichanian needs to remain discreet and subtle in her design concept. That’s why you need to look at Hermès design from a another perspective. For instance, this season Nichanian put her creativity in unconventional duos like dark and vibrant colours, raw material and detailed cutting…etc. As if she is taking Jean Paul Gaultier on.

Nichanian intelligently made the male line of Hermès look as if they’re very comfortable, with a pinch of creativity. In case this does not come out as legendary, it would at least work as a fashion “herbal tea”, providing homeopathic stress relief for the fashion audience. I noticed that there are some uneven collar shirts, showing a minor characteristic of a rebellious boy perhaps, or maybe she’s trying to create gentleman with a twist.

Trendpick: Shearling Chic: Shearling ching’s big coats is a new come back, becoming fall/winter’s new love. Hermès, however, focuses on the collar of shearling, laying low yet following the trend.
