" is a proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age" [left]… and  Céline agrees with this concept in it's Advertisement Campaign by using Gitte Lee [right]. Gitte Lee is a Danish actress who is married to the wonderful Christopher Lee.
Ari Seth Cohen, founder and editor of Advanced Style, is a Sartorialist for the superannuated and chronicles the stylish and often eccentric get-ups of a group in our society that's normally ignored by the fashion system… and I love it.

INSPIRATION Henri Rousseau 1910... Lanvin SS//2011

Henri Rousseau's jungle painting 'The Dream' [left/ some cut-outs] reminds me of the five gorgeous african queens in Lanvin's SS//2011 collection [right]... similarities in mood, color world and patterns.
Henri Rousseau was a French Post-Impressionist in the naïve or primitive manner.
He painted 'The Dream', which is exposed at the MoMa in New York, in the year of his death in 1910.

INSPIRATION D&G FW 2010//11... ZARA FW 2010//11

In this case I actually prefere the fast fashion solution. The Indio edge of Zara's pullover [right] seams to me an interesting evolution to the regular Scandinavian pattern D&G proposes [left].

INTO THE SAME IDEA ...Céline and Stella McCartney SS//2011

Here's my doubt... are Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney still so much friends that they share ideas over a cup of tea or does their common background bring them to similar solutions in designing? Céline SS//2011 [all lefts] Stella McCarney SS//2011 [all rights]
