A very Saint Yves

The new "Yves Saint Laurent" movie left me emotionally drunk. It was an explosive cocktail of emotions, love, desire, passion, fascination, devotion, beauty and fashion, fashion, fashion.. This movie is a must for all fashion victims and all other victims.. of a lifeless life.. Another must is reading Alicia Drake's "Beautiful People". Only this ensemble enables to understand the world of Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Jacques de Bascher, Thadée Klossowski or Loulou de la Falaise during the '80.. At that time Paris was undoubtedly absolutely fantastic to live. But when Paris wasn't so..? If you are part of the happy few of course..
My top quotes by "Beautiful People":
''It isn't the easy life that we want, it is just the life without problems." "You had not to be rich or famous but you had to be beautiful." "In fact, nobody of us was interested in reality." "Be yourself, be individualist, express yoursel…

Gentleman of the Courts: Fibak's Art

Image
Inspired by the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters (congratulations to Stan Wawrinka), let's turn to a Polish tennis legend Wojciech Fibak: winner of the Australian Open (1978), as well as Monte Carlo Masters (1976) and Swiss Open Gstaad (1985), just to name one of the most prestigious. Besides being a former tennis star, he is also a passionate collector of Polish art and owner of the Fibak Gallery, inter alia. His collection comprises above all works of the XX century. Here are some insights into a post-sportsman world:

"Portrait of the composer Edgar Varese with his wife" Mela Muter, 1924 There is a very particular reason why I love this particular painting.
"Woman with rabbit" Eugeniusz Zak, 1920/1921
"Romantic landscape" Zygmunt Menkes, 1926
"The dance" Leopold Gottlieb, 1934
"Don Quixote" Stanisław Eleszkiewicz, 1960

It is official: I am in love with Switzerland. Of course far not as much as with Monaco or with France (and to be clear my definition of France is Paris, Cannes and St.Tropez), but still I love Switzerland.  The quality of life here is outstanding and above all the sincerity of Swiss is incredible, but true.. The passion for perfection and quality is omnipresent and these are indispensable conditions for breathing..

Goodbye..
It was so funny.. I went to Munich in order to visit the Lenbachhaus, but I did everything except from visiting the Lenbachhaus.. Next time.. I was more fascinated by another art: the art of living in Munich's two Leading Hotels: Bayerischer Hof and Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski. Here are four reasons why the latter is my TOP:

1) Location, location, location: Maximiliansstraße. 2) Outstandingly attentive service. Excellent. 3) Monaco Tonic Water. In Love. 4) International Spirit. The whole world united.
