La REcyclerie

Hey Guys,

There is a big debates inside of fashion world about who creates fashion or from where it is coming. There are some theories up-to-down and down-to-up, basically one talks about the star designers marks the way fashion moves and other people talks about the influence of people as urban tribus (punk,…), bloggers right now, and so on.

One thing is clear is that people that work in this sector is everyday seeing things that influence them; could be a song, a flower, a color, one smell or a trendy cup of coffee.

All this introduction is to talk about La Recyclerie in Paris (France). Newly installed in a long-abandoned metro station, La Recyclerie promotes three fundamental principles: reduce, reuse and recycle. A convivial restaurant and a creative hub, it favours collaborative initiatives through workshops and classes, organises flea markets and car boot sales, and hosts talks on how to consume more responsibly. One can thus learn how to repair broken objects, update clothes with a few stitches or natural dyes, or cook healthy food whatever the budget.

If you are in Paris, don’t lose the opportunity to go.

Yves Saint Laurent

Hey Guys,
Yesterday, will be the birthday of one of the best designers in the history of fashion if he did not pass away in 2008. 
Caroline Rennolds Milbank wrote the following about him: “The most consistently celebrated and influential designer of the past twenty-five years, Yves Saint Lurent can be credited with both spurring couture’s rise from its sixties ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable.”
Besides, he is also credited with having introduced the Tuxedo suit for women and was known for his use of non-European cultural references, and non-white models.
