It seems to now be official. Cuba is the hot spot for fashion designers. Cue Karl Lagerfeld who staged Chanel's resort 2017 collection in Havana, Cuba, earlier this month. This was the first time the French fashion house had a runway show in Latin America and marked the first international fashion show since the 1959 communist revolution, according to the BBC.

Previous to this, The Rolling Stones played a free show in Havana.
"Cuba has… so many kinds of music, all of it brilliant," commented Mick Jagger, according to the Rolling Stone. "It was inevitable that we would play here one day."
Now, with this mix of fashion, rock & roll and Cuban culture, it seems the best way to bring this full circle is to see how these worlds are combining. And, the best way to do this is through the fashion aspect and offer ways you can incorporate pieces into your existing wardrobe.
And, once you have your Cuban-inspired outfit, why not throw on some Stones to add a touch of rock & roll.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
