Girl Power

 

To the girl feeling lost, sad or confused,
to the girl inside you that you don’t want to lose,
to the tear that of helplessness does not speak,
but the one of magnitude of your own personality.

For all the times that you’ve been bored,
and those that they tried to have you torn,
for your aura of success bespoke,
and by it they were left in awe.

Yet the feeling was just of shock,
for you left them with a goal,
the intimidated you did not pursue,
nor did you stop for a simple ‘i do’ .

To settle down was not the hurdle,
but just to settle for you was unheard-of ,
as you wanted someone who the world circled,
and not those who a globe only doodled.

The stem of the desire became a burden,
as your goodbye was a safety curtain ,
for a little crazy you always longed,
and when it arrived it left you torn.

And the days of courting became a memory,
as they only saw it as male victory,
after that forced dominance you did not lust,
for men forgot how to earn their rights.

For I Have Changed 


Lost. Not in who she is. Nor where she’ll be. But in the puppet show in which she’s the lead.

Disappointed. On a constant quest. Not for the dreams. But for the soul.

Torn. Between oceans. Longing for the world. Never not missing home.

Persistent. Always to rise. Not to be someone’s toy.

Certain. Failure she does not see, for a warrior she found within. 

Changed.

A Parisian Dream: Day 1

Dear travellers, dreamers and life lovers,

A couple of days ago I opened my travelling season aka the end of Uni with a trip to Paris with one of my besties. After first visiting it in October last year, Paris has quickly become my safe haven. A plus side of having visited a city already is that you don’t have to run around doing all the touristy things, but you get to relax and enjoy it much more. With that said, after a very stressful academic year, I’ve been craving inspiration and, for me, that comes in form of art. So where else would I go if not to Paris.
That is why we started off the trip with a day entirely dedicated to Museums.
These were taken at the Musée du Louvre:

After Louvre, it was time for Musée d’Orsay.
Its selection of Van Gogh was striking as I believed most of his ‘more famous’ work would be at the his museum in Amsterdam.
And a visit to this museum would not be complete without a photo by the famous clock which overlooks the city.

We wrapped up the day by a visit to the incredibly aesthetic and airy Musée de l’Orangerie.

We finished off the day in true granny style, falling asleep before 9pm (with a cheeky wine bottle and a chick-flick).

More about our following days in Paris coming soon!
Lots of love,
Asja

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons: An Investment to Make?

Dear readers,

as many of you may know, Louis Vuitton launched their collaborative collection with Jeff Koons on April 11th at the Louvre. Ever since the very first pictures popped up, I’ve been wondering about both the artistic and the investment value of the collection, hence, I decided to share my views.

The collection features copies of artwork by Da Vinci, Titien, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh and its a dream come true to any artlover. However, I believe it’s on the very thin line of being a well-carried-off  intellectual property infringement. Moreover, speaking from a purely fashion side, none of the pieces are bold or extravagant, they are just unexpected and indisputably not to be incorporated into ready-to-wear, which, thus, makes them into collectors’ pieces.
This leads me to my next question: Does this collection have true investment value?
Considering the design, the lack of originality in the bigger picture and the interest from the buyers expressed thus far, it is a safe speculation that this collection will be just a boom when it hits the stores on April 28th which will get little interest after a couple of interest.
Thus, judging by the trends in the fashion market in the last couple of years and what pieces are worth the investment in regards to the resale market, this collection is unlikely to be it.
I am interested in more opinions on the collection from anyone who’s invested in the market, so shoot me an email at asja.zolotovna@gmail.com.

Until next time,
Asja
