APERLAÏ X MARIE LAFFONT

14/02/27 - 11:45 - In: PFW

Aperali Marie LaffontLast night’s fashion toastes goes to the shoe maison Aperlaï and artist Marie Laffont @244 Rue Rivoli. The art collaboration we all been waiting for finally went live.  I simply can’t think of a better fusion than the two shoe maniacs Alessandra Lanvin and Marie Laffont – such positive and dynamic spirits – that brings all to the table and voilà the expo was just stunning. Who could make shoes talk more than them? To sum up Laffont has captured the everyday object (shoes) not only as something fashionable but also as a mobile object and taken it through the sidewalk of life. Suddenly it gets immobile and frozen. Scary but at the same time simply perfect. Love the interpretation and different associations that can be put into something as heavenly as shoes. Yes the shoe nerd is speaking… Enjoy the snapshots!

Looks fab!!! X
My personal favorite is cilantro because it really adds a kick to the dish but you can also use parsley, chives, mint and basil. If you bought an herb grinder together with your herb vaporizer, it is best for you to use it. Grinding raises a burr that is sufficient for most work, but you can burnish a scraper by hand.

Today is not an ordinary day, its’ Air Max Day. When Nike first released the Air Max 1 on March 26, 1987, it’s safe to say they released a revolution. Although Nike had been placing air cushioning into its shoes since 1979, it wasn’t until 1987 that it made this technology large and visible enough for […]

The road trip – fictional or otherwise – has fuelled the imagination of some of the most influential figures in literature, film, art and music. Consider Tom Wolfe’s epic 1966 novel The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, which details a psychedelic, acid-enhanced journey through America on a customised school bus; or more recently, Alexander Payne’s dark comedy Nebraska (2013), […]
