In my second NOTES À LA MODE I had planned something completely different, but all day my internet connection has been teasing me and uploading only one photo seemed to take forever. I decided it was time to admit defeat. I had already uploaded these and was saving for later but in this rainy weather we are enjoying in Luxembourg they seem ideal.
This is an editorial from 2009, taken for the Travel Summer section of The New York Times Style on the Greek island of Patmos. It was Camilla Åkrans who photographed model Tiiu Kuik. The mood in these photographs moves my heart.
NOTES À LA MODE 02 LINKS
• Did you follow the CFDA Fashion Awards? There is a wonderful video from the ceremony on Style.com. It starts with short clips, interviews with designers and celebrities from the red carpet, which are fun to watch if you don't have the time to watch the whole thing. Seth Meyers was the host and it was hilarious when he at one point showed up on stage wearing the black lace dress that Marc Jacobs wore at the Met Ball 2012
• The fashion bloggers Garance Doré and Scott Schuman accepted the Media Award, in the honour of Eugenia Sheppard, and I loved their speeches that were particularly directed to bloggers. If you open the Style.com link above you can watch it from minute twenty-two or so
• Speaking of Garance Doré. She posted an interview on her blog with fashion writer at Vogue US, Chioma Nnadi, that I found very interesting and inspirational
• These days more and more Resort 2013 Collections are being revealed. The colours of the Burberry Prorsum collection especially appeal to me and I have to say that I'm in love with this Michael Kors gold long-sleeved top
