"Aurora"

After long procrastinations and fighting with my schedule I've managed to visit the infamous open - air cinema theatre  "Aurora" in my favorite city park - "Chistyakov Grove" to watch 'Poltergeist' - a horror remake of the 1982 film of the same name. 
Not that I pissed in my pants from shock, but I definetely liked the film more when I had watched it under sky full of stars. You can find all the necessary information about broadcasted films and a ticket price here. Sorry for a blurry photo, it was dark.

It's hailing


Have a look at the storm which finished a couple of minutes ago here at my place! I thought Kaney, Riri and sir Paul would serve as a good background for it, no?

A trip to Novorossyisk


I've been updating my blog less than expected since my 'enfant terrible' aka my younger brother (who's 3 times bigger than me though) arrived  to see me in Krasnodar a few days ago. We both went to the seaside of the nearest resort city yesterday and oh boy I loved it! Nothing relaxes me more than floundring around the shore in the salty water and a natural stone massage. 
The only minus is a horrid traffic that would have got on my nerves too much by the end of the day.
Here's a photo diary of my trip.

Anna Wintour "Full Adress" (the Oxford Union speech)


Have you already seen a new video message from the one and only Anna Wintour,  the editor-in-chief of US Vogue?
She shared her personal experience of fighting tooth and nail to get to the top with Oxford ''nerds" students. I wonder how didn't anyone smack that guy in the face who was constantly sitting behind her and chatting  while the legend was propheting magic to the masses? You won't buy manners with higher education indeed!
It's interesting though what this amazing woman says about Chris.Bailey that he's been staying a one man circus (like myself) at Burberry. She's wearing his Pre-Fall 2015 shearling lined leather  jacket by the way. Loves it! Watch the video and tell me what you think!



Now you know what to do  if you meet Anna:  shake her hand instead of taking a selfie!


P.S: Sorry, but I can't get it: what can a "rich genious meat head" from the "pinnacle of top education" show at the Oxford Fashion Week. A studded Oxford cap?! #lol

"Eastern corner" 

While running errands yesterday afternoon, I stumbled upon an eatery where they serve all sorts of Caucacasian cuisine (in my language it's the cuisine which strong bearded  men from Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay–Cherkessia, North Ossetia–Alania, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Adjaria, and the Adygea eat on a daily basis). 
And gee it's so tasty! I literally had goosebumps down my spine - that's how tasty their food is! 
Since I visited North Ossetia-Alania two times, I've fallen in love with their food, hands down, and I've been trying to try more of traditional food of the Caucasus. I mean it's a real adventure when degustate some flavoured dishes, smell, and sniff them all. 
After having tried "Ossetian pie", "kebab", "Shashlik" (skewered meat), I'm not even an apprentice when it comes to good food. 
Though eating, apart from sleeping and playing with cothes,  - is my favourite activity ever! 
So the eatery is called "Vostochnyi Ugolok" (Eng: "Eastern corner"). It's situated in the city center of Krasnodar, Russia: 324 Severnaya St. 
If you're lucky to visit my place one day, be sure I'll do my best to show you around and drive you to the place if you like so.

Alessandro Michele for Gucci 2016 Resort Collection

Photo credit: Gucci.com


I'm sure you all are alredy aware of every angle of a new Cruise collection by Gucci shown in New York yesterday. If not go and check out the official Gucci website.

My favourite look is # 11 which a new cast in the show Shaughnessy Brown presented. And a coat worn by a model # 36.

If Jackie Kennedy were alive today, it does seem to me, she would opt for the most part of featured items . I'd opt for the two mentioned above sans dispute.

Also I think that shoes is a very strong point detail of the whole collection which is going to be (or must be the most screaming trend the very next summer season).


The negative side I see in the sort of such a collection is trumping "geeks" and "nerds" of all sorts which seems like a long playing record to me.


Nevertheless, fashion is fashion! It's all a never ending song which is doomed to a self-repeating.
I don't know what about you, but I'm off to dig into my Granny's trunk up on the attic. LOL.

Rihanna + Justin Bieber + Lara Stone  = Your Love Music Video


I'm in love with these three human beings (Ok, I admit  that I love Justin much less than Lara & RiRi). BTW, how many fashion labels can you spot? I can spot Armani Jeans and  Calvin Klein because it's easy (#Immacheater). Now your turn!

Jesus is hot



OMG! I was like sitting in the front row (no, not on the fashion show unfortunately) but on a shuttle-bus and was like listening to M83 ("Midnight city") and there he was  - blond, tall, smelling "something so good pour Homme" and chose a seat right next to me (delightful!). But before he did so, he  had turned his back to my row and I saw that "Jesus 00" print on his tee. My jaw kissed my toes at that moment!  Now I know that Jesus is hot (in my language hot means super attractive)! 
I need the same T-shirt but in white coloring and black printing. You can buy the one above here.

Joseph Brodsky "Tornfallet": Russian version by me

photo courtesy: podrobnosti.ua

Есть в Швеции луг,
Где лежу я, убиенный, 
Глаза облеплены облаками
Белыми, туда и обратно.
И около того луга
Бродит моя вдовица,
В косу вяжет клевер -
Венец для любви своей.
Я взял её в жёны
В гранитном приходе.
Снег взаймы ей дал бледность,
Сосна подтвердила.
Она  окунулась в овал озёрца,
Обрамлённый в орляк опал зеркальцА,
Счастливая, сокрушённая.
А в ночи от подушки моей
Засветило упрямое солнце
Её рыжеватых волос
Прямиком на колонну и столб.
Теперь в отдаленьи
Мне слышится песня
Её «Голубая косатка»,
Но, увы, не могу я подпеть ей.
Вечерней тенью
Скрыт луг из полосок и цвета,
Становится холоднее.
И, пока я лежу, ожидая здесь смерти,
Я созерцаю глазами звёзды. Вот – Венера.
И никого больше: между мной и тобой.

Иосиф Бродский.

Anna Wintour at Late Night with Seth Meyers

Don't tell me that this woman is a genious! I know it without you!
And yes: a genious can be funny too!
