The Art of Old Paris – L’art du vieux Paris: Eugene Atget

Posted in Corsets, Paris, Photography with tags , , , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by harlette

Eugène Atget Boulevard de Strasbourg 1912

Yesterday I got to experience an amazing documentary of time,  the art of old paris, very aware of the fragility of the time he existed in, an untrained photographer took to the streets of Paris to capture what was, and what was to be no more, the nooks the cranny’s the life that was on the street before the great “cleansing” of Paris.

Living through the end of the Belle Epoch, seeing the demolition of  the Old Paris to make way for the New Paris Eugène Atget (1857–1927) captured life as it was, he paid special attention to document areas of Old Paris which were marked for demolition.

As soon as Atget turned his attention to photographing the streets of Paris, his work attracted the attention of leading institutions such as Musée Carnavalet and the Bibliothèque Nationale, which became his principal clients.

I wondered as I soaked in the luxury of the collection before my eyes if the makers of Midnight in Paris has seen Atget’s work. For those of you that caught Midnight in Paris, being transported back in time became a reality for a few moments up on the big screen.


For those of you that indulged a little too long, looking for your own golden age, Woody Allen confronted us, the audience with the message within the movie, that even when you reach your so-called golden age,  once you arrive, you may discover, that those people in the golden age, are often thinking that a time before them, that they too postulate being rather more romantic than the time they find themselves in at the present moment.

Fashion Designers, filmmakers and photographers are romancers and overly flirtatious with the time before, the feeling that we missed the golden age is always within us and around us. That’s why we see such a resurgence to fill our present time and space with interpretations of fashions, times, places and  flavours of before or what we imagine it like to be in the future. Understanding the very present time is the hardest for what is now is not nearly as understood as what has been before.

Whats Your Flavour of Luxury?

We thought this week we would ask you about your flavour of Luxury and match your flavour to our Harlette Labels

Is your luxury flavour like Peppermint, very uplifting, cool and calm.

Harlette’s Super Luxury Lingerie Black Label also features made with Swarovski Elements with new pieces being added to the Double Trouble range. The Double Trouble range was made famous when it was selected by Billie Piper to feature in Secret Diary season four as one of the lingerie sets that she wore during the series. Made with Harlette’s signature lace, made in France layered over silk Double Trouble is luxury at its best. AW12/13 Double Trouble features a Kimono, & Luxury Lingerie Tie Me Up Bralette, and Tie Me Down Knickers, and Catsuit.

Fashion & Film where would it be without Music

Posted in Dior, Fashion, Film, Paris with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2012 by harlette

Following on from our last post on the impact that words have on fashion & film, we could not of course forget the immense impression that music has to guide us to a perfect fashion moment.

My favourite all time fashion moment is created by none other than Guy Ritchie as director for Dior, staring Jude Law, Michaela Kocianova, with creative director Robert Lussier and of course Paris an intoxicating mix of sensory overload to say the least. What fuses this whole moment into combustible fashion lust is of course the music titled Exogenesis by Muse.

Here is the fashion, film & music video triage that I hope you enjoy as much as we do here at Harlette.

This is the 2012 sequel for Dior Homme Sport with Jude Law & Exogenesis by Muse
