Today’s Pop is Megan, proudly Young American (prefers Dylan to Bowie) and spending far too much time thinking about the new YSL evening dresses. Megan just bought the new CD reissue of "A Kiss In The Dreamhouse" by
"Louise Necklace", Boucheron 2009
Dangerous, provocative and lots of carats…
I feel sure Sioux would approve of this Boucheron obsession. (We’re in tune this week you see.) The line was inspired by several Parisian women that instead of making a ripple in the ponds of their time created real tidal waves. They include Lucie Delabigne, Josephine Baker, Loïe Fuller, Jeanne Souchard and a couple of ladies from the Moulin Rouge, who Boucheron described as “liberated, beautiful women, sometimes dangerous and always elegant.” The designs and colors are bold and flashy and fit the nature of the women they were inspired by.
My favourite eye-candy here is the Louise set, inspired by Louise Weber, a dancer from the Moulin Rouge who invented the Can-Can and was famously nicknamed “La Goulue” (“The Glutton”) by
"Oh the air was shining, Shining like a wedding ring… I felt 10,000 volts, My chest was full of eels… Pouting, Shouting!"
That was "Cascade" by
Jeanne’s jewelry set is also a highlight: named for
"You are the melting men, You are your situation, There is no time to breath, And yet one single breath, Leads to an insatiable desire… So Melt! My lover, melt!…"
