Last year in Marienbad is a cult film for lovers of the seventh art. Filmed in 1961 and directed by the Frenchman Alain Resnais, it has gone down in history for its complex narrative structure and the duality between the dream world and the real world, which has served as a later inspiration to many filmmakers.

There is already a successor to the Kenzo Empire.

There is still a lot left for February 2020, but we already have the date marked in red. The bright red of Christian Louboutin's soles, obviously. In Paris, a great retrospective dedicated to the great shoe designer will be held. Because his creations are almost a work of art and deserve this exhibition.
There are no two without three and Simon Porte Jacquemus (sigh, sigh) is the fashionable boy in this world. Not only does their presence raise passions and break hearts, their designs attract thousands of women every season who want to dress in a simple and very feminine way. With these premises it is not surprising that low-cost fashion firms want to be inspired by it.
The world of fashion emanates art and savoir faire, so much that the big firms are committed to unique illustrators who shape their philosophy through drawings that are pure magic. Gucci, Dior or Prada are some of the brands that rely on the work of talented artists to translate their ideas into canvases.
Every time you wear a miniskirt, a pichi, a Peter Pan collar, a PVC raincoat, colored socks, it is in some way your fault. Mary Quant was a great British designer to whom we owe a lot of pop style from the 60's fashion. Now, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London organizes a large exhibition with more than 200 objects designed by Mary Quant from 6 April, along with photographs of the time to better understand the context of freedom of the 60s.
They say that unity is strength and over the years, women have proven to be (very) powerful. Today International Women's Day is celebrated, and for this reason different manifestations have been organized all over the world and the firms do not hesitate to celebrate the date by launching limited edition designs for the occasion.
Benetton has taken the head out of her burrow again. The Italian firm had a bad run in recent years and has found the perfect antidote to return to the front page. What better way to do it than going back to the origins? In the most literal way possible, because its founder Luciano Benetton has returned to refloat the firm.
We're going to miss Karl Lagerfeld a lot. I hope your successor Virginie Viard continues her habit of creating totally surreal scenarios to present her parades. Chanel has made us dream on catwalks that take us to impossible worlds that only the brilliant mind of the German designer can devise.
The era of Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel may have come to an end, but the designs he has created during these three decades will remain in the imaginary of fashion forever. The suits of jacket, tweed and black & white are already part of the DNA of the maison and anyone would like to throw them the glove.
That Karl Lagerfeld has left us does not mean that his dresses will do so. His creations are endless and will never disappear from our retinas. Especially these 43 dresses and looks that celebrities have worn on red carpets, always being the best dressed of the night. They are 35 years at the head of the French maison, in which the kaiser dressed marvelously well-known celebrities such as Nicole Kidman or Julianne Moore, among many others.
The great Karl Lagerfeld has died today in Paris. After filling pages and pages of wonderful designs, red carpet dresses and movie collections, today we say goodbye. The kaiser has marked a before and after in fashion. Friend of many celebrities, he has been responsible for bringing signatures like Fendi or Karl Lagerfeld to the top.
We all know the effect that comments on our appearance can have on self-esteem. Whether it's a brutally sincere friend or an impertinent stranger in the middle of the street, the truth is that what they think of our body affects us. Normally, more bad than good. It also happened to Jojo Oldham, so he decided to do something about it: turn all those comments into a dress and wear it with pride.
Traveling the world in the style of Karl Lagerfeld will be possible thanks to the opening of its new hotel chain
There is no one to stop Karl Lagerfeld. As if being creative director of Chanel and one of the world's greatest style gurus was not enough, now the kaiser has decided to embark on a new business activity: his own hotel chain. On Monday, the new Karl Lagerfeld Hotels brand was introduced and its website is already active.
As if we needed excuses to travel to London ... Well, in 2017 we will have one more. And the Victoria & Albert Museum will offer a great retrospective exhibition of the work of Cristóbal Balenciaga, as part of the centenary celebration of the opening of his first store in San Sebastián and the 80th anniversary of his arrival in Paris.
Long live Nicolas Ghesquière. His Spring-Summer 2017 collection at Louis Vuitton will make you fall in love
The parade of Louis Vuitton coincided with the appearance of his mobile case that everyone liked, what we are going to fool, and foreshadowed a good start. Nicolas Ghesquière wants to be on everyone's lips, and after a Spring-Summer 2016 collection that left everyone with a big bluf and a gradual ski lift with the Fall-Winter 2016/2017 collection, this time the bubble has swollen again (and not just air).
The queens of the brightest and most metallic dance floor of the 80s are the undisputed protagonists of the Kenzo spring-summer 2017 parade. In a textile universe increasingly focused on minimalism, total looks and neutral colors, Kenzo makes a statement of intent: exacerbated maximalism still has a place in the world of fashion.
Rykiel Forever, the spring summer 2017 collection of Sonia Rykiel keeps the spirit of its founder alive
The spring-summer 2017 parade of Sonia Rykiel may have been one of the most nostalgic and sad moments of the Paris Fashion Week, but the firm was responsible for making it a real party. Red-haired models with carded hair and black sweaters in which Rykiel Forever could be read opened the catwalk, and the best was yet to come.
Alexander McQueen's maxim is always to get us out of the real world and transport us to some dramatic place full of poetry and romanticism. The creative director of the firm Sarah Burton takes care of this happening, always including historical allusions in her inspirations. With the spring-summer collection, the brand has taken the sweetest protagonist of fairy tales and has given it a modern, grunge and full of attitude touch.
Paris Fashion Week continues, this time with the spring-summer Givenchy parade. This season its designer Riccardo Tisci has surprised us with the most psychedelic garments and the most vibrant colors that could be expected. Geometric prints and designs reminiscent of semiprecious stones, this is the new collection of the French firm for next season.
Loewe's new proposal is a reflection of the line that already began in his previous collection, with colors and silhouettes that are already familiar to us. Inspired by crafts and manual work, J.W. Anderson shows us some garments with very organic shapes in which seams, cuts and other imperfections carefully worked and intended stand out.
