Upstairs-Downstairs at the Hotel Marignan
Diane has spoiled me yet again on my last day in Paris on the opening night of ASVOFF taking place later tonight at the Centre Pompidou. I've duly checked in to the uber-chic Hotel Marignan designed by Pierre Yovanovitch -- a stone's throw from the Champs-Élysées.
Split level rooms with epic bathrooms upstairs and living-sleeping quarters downstairs with balconies both inside the room and out overlooking the street. Of course the ubiquitous bars, restaurants and such. But also a plush cinema downstairs without even having to leave the front door. Of course, cinematic Diane Pernet would make that a requirement, wouldn't she?
Lucky boy I be....Need I say
more? As they say.... a picture truly is worth a thousand words.

PITOUR by Maria Oberfrank at MQ Vienna Fashion Week 2013. By Glenn Belverio
Designer Maria Oberfrank describes her brand PITOUR as being "perfectly positioned between soberness and exuberance"--and this collection shown last month in Vienna, full of Apollonian graphic details and Dionysian drapey, sensual silhouettes, was exactly that.
For this collection, Oberfrank wanted to capture the atmosphere of summer: sun-drenched landscapes with sparkling colors and flowers. "The colour scale glows on dresses in a very different mentality," she tells me. "Colored ribbons divide the body into diagonal fractals, and arrange them symmetrically. Cut-outs provide current insights and perspectives."
