Jean Pigozzi opens “My World” exhibit in Beijing
Posted on

Long before photobombs and selfies were coined, there was Jean Pigozzi—a photographer who often pictured himself among celebrities.
“I take photos of friends, relatives, architecture, landscapes, the food that makes me hungry, the people I admire, the women I desire. I have the intention to keep taking photos as long as I can,” he said.
Now showing for the first time in China, Jean Pigozzi is usually introduced as the photographer of the jet set.

My World invitation

Heir to a European car empire (Simca), he suffered dyslexia from a young age and started taking photographs of his daily life as a teenager.
Instead of writing a diary, he kept a visual journal of his life in the high society since the 1960’s.
His current exhibition in Beijing covers four decades of capturing celebrities in their off guard moments—like Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol, Jack Nicholson, Halle Berry, Natalie Portman, Kate Moss, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, and even as recent as Leonardo Di Caprio, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts during the 2014 Oscar parties.

Both an insider and outsider, friend and fan, his photos reflect moments of intimacy in the life of the rich and famous. They provide access to a world that is usually hidden from sight: the Oscar or Cannes Festival parties, yacht trips, private dinners, weddings, even backstage of Rolling Stones concerts.
Appropriately titled Jean Pigozzi—My world, the exhibition at UCCA (Beijing) includes 250 photos shot in black and white, curated by famous film director Alexi Tan.

Before his return to China as a film director, Alexi Tan was a photographer in New York who shot numerous portraits of Hollywood celebrities for major fashion magazines.
By introducing Jean Pigozzi’s photographic work to China today, director Alexi Tan nods to his own past as a photographer.

Macha Green Tea Fair returns to Royce’
Posted on

This April, the Maccha Green Tea selection comes back to Royce’ chocolate stores.
After a successful run last year, the Maccha Green Tea Fair returns with your favourites, including maccha-flavored chocolate wafers—green tea in rich cream, sandwiched between crunch wafers and covered in machha cholocate.
The result is a rich, creamy, bittersweet taste in one perfect bite.

Roycé

Maccha green tea and Royce’ chocolate combinations will still be available, including Royce’s Maccha Almond Chocolate, Prafeuille Chocolate Maccha, and Nama Chocolate Maccha.

Roycé

Maccha is a fine, bright green, talc-like powder that is produced when dried tea leaves are stone-ground.
Produced under the most meticulous conditions, maccha is said to be packed with antioxidants that help boost metabolism and reduce cholesterol levels.

Find Maccha Almond Chocolate, Prafeuille Chocolate Maccha, Nama Chocolate Maccha, and Maccha-flavored Chocolate Wafers this April in Royce’ shops at Greenbelt 5, PowerPlant Mall, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, The Podium, and at the Cake Club in Bonifacio Global City.

Return of the It bag
Posted on

Oh my. Just when we thought It bags were dead and were just too happy to carry a Goyard, Herve Chapelier, or even an LL Bean tote—comes the new Chanel bags for Spring-Summer 2014.
I didn’t think it was my type until I saw the pictures on the website and they are just WOW.

I’m not a backpack person, so I’m more likely to get this—if I could ever get my hands on it—who knows?

As for girls who prefer the classic Chanel flap, this one looks like art

I should’ve checked while I was in Tokyo, but there was so much to do, so little time.
