Caroline Otero

Spanish-born actress, courtesan and dancer, 'La Belle' Otero escaped a horrific childhood to find her fortune in Paris at the age of 14. After creating the character of an Andalusian gypsy she was soon the most sought after woman in Europe and eventually became the star of Les Folies Bergere. Mentioned in Colette's 'Gigi' for her extravagant fashion, a very low hanging crystal was designed for her by Cartier himself. Ten million francs worth of jewels set in solid gold with thirty tear drop diamonds, this daring pendant would be transported from it's bank vault by several armed policemen when Caroline had her favourite clientele. Of whom her most famous lovers included Edward Prince of Wales; King Alfonzo XIII of Spain and Nicolas, Czar of Russia. She was showered with gifts and six men allegedly committed suicide over her. Those eyes have some stories to tell.

Not Just Jeans


May11

 

Thanks to Morris Levis Strauss a sturdy indigo pair of pants were created in San Francisco in the mid 19th century.

A century went by and jeans started to make their way from a tuff working man’s rugsack to everyone’s wardrobes, embraced first by hippies and bikies. Since then the Western world has run rife with your average blue jeans.

At first democratic, later egalitarian, blue jeans were America’s common ground. This equality bearing pant soon spread to Europe to be ironically sold back to Americans in finer fabrics and styles. A cross-cultural chic trade-off occurred where Europeans were trying to evoke Americana and Americans the reverse.

Tensions like this are never ending, and I’m not just talking about the pull on your zip when you try the lying down on the bed trick to fit back into your favourite pair.

Jacob Davis first added copper riveting pant and pockets to these humble numbers when he joined the Levi Strauss firm. Since then jeans have been whipped into many different shapes and fabrics breaking down culture, age, sex, and class.

The unassuming blue trousers’ inevitable sex appeal has been stretched by brands such as Levis and Calvin Klein, by shrinking their jeans to figure hug the likes of Kate Moss and Eva Mendes.

High and low brows alike are raising at the never ending transformations jeans go under every season. Jeans are sweeping through subculture and snob communities simultaneously, whilst remaining mainstream.

With durability on their side, jeans aren’t stopping any time soon either.
