I spent last week working as costume designer assistant (Dorota Roqueplo) in a documental movie with elements of fiction about a great Polish scientist Maria Skłodowska-Curie “Sacree Polonaise” directed by Krzysztof Rogulski.
Costumes are from the end of the XIX and beginning of the XX century.

What happens when a famous singer (Lilly Allen) well known for her vintage look and her sister (Sara Owens) who was running a vintage store for a few years, decide to do a business together?
A unique concept store full of vintage clothes of great designers is created. Who can be better on having a vintage shop than someone who from the beginning of her career is well known for vintage inspired dresses or used to run one by herself?
So, when in London, don’t forger to visit Lucy in Disguise in Covent Garden where you can rent or purchase beautiful dresses and accessories from great designers form 20’s to 90’s, be nice an cozy at blow dry bar and a vintage make- up salon or have a cocktail in the private dressing room while being attended by a stylist.
For me really great news is that this place can be a of great help for costume designers and stylist as well, especially when you really need something original form the epoch and the budget doesn’t allow you to buy all the pieces you need, witch normally happens and you don’t have enough time to run to all the second hand shops in the area to dig in dust and between racks full of things you do not need.
Let’s hope that founders of Lucy in Disguise, sisters Lilly Allen and Sara Owens, will think of a way to help costume designers in their daily battle with low budgets….

I was still a student when I was visiting Madrid for the second time, it was winter time but the day was sunny and I spent it in the park called el Retiro heaving picnic, reading and taking pictures. When I was heading to el Museo del Prado I stopped by in one of the book stands that used to be there and somewhere between old magazines and dirty newspapers I found this: LA MODE EN PEINTURE, LES COLLECTIONS HIVER 84. I found it so beautiful. Luckily for my student wallet it was cheap too, I really think they should have charged me more…
Now for you fragments of Winter Collections from the year I was born, 1984 en peinture. For free.
All illustrations are from LA MODE EN PEINTURE, LES COLLECTIONS HIVER 84.

This waterproof coat, typical of English gentleman, has come from the trenches to a big screen, from cinema to the streets, from men’s fashion to be one of the basics of female fashion. This beige raincoat is a real movie star that in an instant creates an unforgettable character.
Este impermeable, típico abrigo del caballero inglés, ha llegado de las trincheras al cine y del cine a las calles, de la moda masculina a ser uno de los básicos de la moda femenina. Este impermeable de color beige es una estrella de cine que en un instante crea un personaje inolvidable.
