Man fashion
is about woman

The best way to study fashion - and really get it - is to observe fashion for man. A reasoning at the beginning oof the Milan fashion shows

When reality goes
beyond fiction

This is a story of two loves and a betrayal. From a letter arrived to Lampoon's editorial office some time ago, a tale like novel that no one can write anymore

Bourgeoisie,
nostalgia

Middle class is no longer an insult. This is the news. Not that the middle class has been eroded by the social recession and the outmoded habit of separated classes

Black-eyed forever

The origins of makeup for men – Perhaps we wanted to write just how much we did not want to be ‘normal’ on our faces

Avant-garden

It is easy to understand how much gardens can reveal of the human being, recalling the story of Versailles and how much each king expressed of himself

They never became families, they never had children, but these three interrupted and suffered loves inspired the history of literature, art and fashion
