[text_output]The Rodin Museum has always been a favorite of tourists so everyone is delighted that it has re-opened after an extensive 3 year, 16 million Euro renovation.

On display in the splendid high-ceilinged salons are not only Rodin’s sculptures and drawings, but also the sculptures of Camille Claudel, his student and lover. Rodin created some of the most iconic sculptures in the history of art, “The Kiss” and “The Thinker”.

The prestigious Hotel Biron, an early 18th century mansion with 7 acres of gardens that houses the Rodin collection was originally built as a private residence. In 1820 it was purchased by a religious order which created a school for young girls. In 1904 the property was surrendered to the State which temporarily rented out rooms to impoverished artists and writers. Some of the tenants who rented space in the shabby splendor of the mansion were Henri Matisse, Jean Cocteau, Rainer Maria Rilke and the dancer Isadora Duncan, the free spirit who is credited with inventing Modern Dance. Auguste Rodin took 4 rooms on the ground floor.

In 1911 the artists were evicted but Rodin fought to save the building from demolition. Before dying in 1917, he gifted the State his entire collection of sculptures on condition that they be housed in the Hotel Biron. The Rodin Museum opened in 1919.[/text_output]

Designing for Shakespeare & Tolstoy

[text_output]Let’s talk about…costume design
Anyone who saw Marion Cotillard’s Lady Macbeth in Australian film-maker Justin Kurzel’s recently released adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy “Macbeth” will have one image etched forever on their mind. Cotillard’s sublimely elegant raw linen ecru long-sleeved dress with its wide round collar, dripping with multiple beaded necklaces and cross pendants, her head piece made of huge pearls attached to a white veil that covered her face and the unearthly blue eye shadow that sweeps across her eyes.

Award winning British costume designer Jacqueline Durran created the costumes for Macbeth. The story unfolds in misty highlands in 11th century Scotland and Durran has masterfully blended period authenticity and modern influences in her breathtakingly beautiful pieces.

Ms. Duran is known for the ravishing dresses she designed for the exquisite Kiera Knightly in Joe Wright’s film adaptation of “Anna Karenina” which brought Durran an Oscar in 2013.
Her inspiration for the robes in Anna Karenina, Tolstoy’s 1877 novel, was a brilliant mix of Russian aristocracy with 1950s Dior, Lanvin and Balenciaga couture. And, thanks to Keira Knightly’s role as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume, Durran was able to use $2m worth of Chanel jewels. Let’s be honest, even I could play the role of a Russian aristocrat if I were covered with a ton of real Chanel pearls and diamonds.[/text_output]

Will the Elbaz/Dior rumor be confirmed?

[text_output]

[text_output]The musical chairs in the fashion industry are turning again. Raf Simon leaves Dior, Alexander Wang withdraws from Balenciaga and Alber Elbaz is pushed out of Lanvin.

Elbaz, artistic director at Lanvin for the past 14 years, is an immensely creative, hardworking designer adored by people within Lanvin and across the fashion world. So it came as quite a shock when he announced that because of conflicts with the company’s owner, Shaw Lan Wang and CEO Michele Huiban, he was being forced out. When he joined Lanvin the company had only 15 wholesale accounts, today it has more than 400. But according to WWD, Lanvin has suffered sales declines and is expected to record its first loss in nearly a decade this year. So maybe his departure is strictly a business decision.

Just as soon as Elbaz announced his departure from Lanvin people in the industry started speculating that he would move into the place left by Raf Simons at Dior. Let’s not forget that he was on the short list for the job after John Galliano was fired in 2011, but a deal couldn’t be made because of Elbaz’s ownership stake in Lanvin.

So, the mystery remains. To be or not to be Dior. Who knows? The designer just might decide to take a step back from the frenetic cycle of fashion shows and the unsustainable pace of the fashion system. One thing we know for sure though, Elbaz has now officially joined Instagram. You can follow Alber @alberelbaz8 and be first to know what he decides to do next.[/text_output]

The sunglasses are designed in Delalle’s London studio, then each frame is handcrafted in Japan with meticulous attention to detail using the highest quality acetate which is made to last. Each style is created as a limited edition.

Born in 1982, Nadine’s passion for design took her from Beirut to London’s University of the Arts, College of Communication where she received an MA in Graphic Design. After graduating, she returned to Beirut and worked as a graphic designer before setting up her own design studio. Soon it became clear to Nadine that, along with pure design, she wanted to create products that could be touched and felt. Back to London at Central Saint Martins, she followed courses in textile and jewelry design. In her Beirut studio she then started developing digital patterns and fabricated digitally designed home accessories.

“My designs express who I am and what inspires me, they allow me to keep dreaming and to transform my imagination into reality.” Nadine Delalle, Creative Director.[/text_output]
