Alexander McQueen’s Autumn Winter 2010 collection

Paris Fashion Week 2010 (3 – 11 March 2010) was great, we loved the Chanel (a Scandinavian ice floe in the Grand Palais) and Hermès (Jean-Paul Gauthier is so creative) collections very much. But what we were waiting for was the late designer Alexander McQueen‘s Autumn Winter 2010 collection, which has been unveiled at Paris fashion week. It’s the collection McQueen was working on when he committed suicide last month… We knew it ...


Bell & Ross Watch for Peugeot SR1 Car

A quick news about a wrist watch that may interest many of our Sama Readers: Bell & Ross dashboard and wrist watch for Peugeot SR1 car. Bell & Ross will launch this month at the Geneva Motor Show, a dashboard and a wrist watch for the Peugeot concept car. The idea sounds great: ‘ The watch and its band fit neatly into the dashboard to become a temporary on-board timepiece. Easily removable, the instrument immediately turns back into a ...


Gothic-style skull clutch by Alexander McQueen

English fashion designer Alexander McQueen is very creative. When we saw the photo of the skull clutch, we (2 of us actually) immediatly thought: ‘This clutch is great, it could make a great gift to someone we know very well’. We suppose you guess about whom we are talking about. Max Dana has been working at her atelier lately and we didn’t have the occasion to show her the skull clutch yet, so we thought it could be a good idea ...


Úna Burke: when Art meets Fashion

  Sometimes, even if you are not into fashion at all, a designer’s work can catch your attention. Úna Burke is one of them.

Just read the Collection description from  Úna Burke Official Website to get a better idea about the Conceptual collection of Fashion Artifacts.   This is a conceptual collection of wearable ...

Whether you’re into jewelry or not, sometimes you can fall for a ring. On a totally different style from the Milly Carnivora created by Victoire de Castellane for Christian Dior we presented you this Summer, the Onyx Skull Ring created by Wendy Brandes is awesome and we know someone who will be very interested by this kind of dark onyx jewelry when she will read this post… Ring description: One-of-a-kind, hand-made 18K ring with large onyx ...

Burlesque Magazine with Kalani Kokonuts

It’s Saturday and we couldn’t leave you until next week without sharing with you a crucial information: a member of the Sama Team had the chance to see Dita Von Teese‘s show at The Casino de Paris last week. We already talked about this rendezvous: Dita Von Teese ‘Queen of Burlesque’ in Paris!, and this Sama Team member really enjoyed the night, in every way… But if you’re still unaware about the Burlesque thing we are ...


Milly Carnivora by Victoire de Castellane

    Chic and Couture, that’s it. When I first saw the new Milly Carnivora created by Victoire de Castellane for Christian Dior on Dior Joaillerie website, I said to myself: ‘I wish I could buy this flower!’. I have no idea how high the price of this jewelry is but it must worth it…       The Milly Carnivora is Christian Dior’s new collection of imaginary flowers and it’s beautiful. Victoire de Castellane is a ...
