Sex & the City – A ‘Mille Feuille’ of Fashion?!

when we talk about fashion, all of us have a flashback of the smart, funny and fashionable series Sex and the City (SATC).  Even if you are 12 years old, you might hear from your related people about “four young, desirable, virtually inseparable New York bachelorettes” as KGF Vissers describe – Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes.
actually, I was only 9 years old when I saw it first ray of light dazzling glamour and colorful questions on the obscurity of the TV. Since then, those girls did not went way from my and many other man lives. Yessss, this is cruelly true!! Try to ask your male friends about “Sam”!

within those girls, HBO promoted a turn-of-the-century culture. The woman did grown up watching this fabulous show and today they are asking for the cosmopolitan as those individual and irreplaceable iconic characters.

Patricia Field
SATC taught us about the individual style! The style that match the real you, the one that makes you feel the so called princess and prince. Sex and the City was much more than just fashion (well, now it might survive because fashion?!), it was about strong individual and smart woman that express themselves in many incredible ways, one of them fashion. On that field, the credit must go to Patricia Field – the Sex and the City costumier, who worked on every detail to show through fashion the those different personal styles and life occasions, which contributed to the call SATC as legendary, changing the fashion world forever.
carrie is the icon for the endless brilliance vintage – which I love/devour – and high fashion. For me, one of the most impressive Carrie fashion moments (but a moment of a dark fairytale!!) was in Paris, dressing the fragile beautiful grandiosity “1000 Layers” by Versace Couture.

the downtown girl, Samantha, brings to the show the bright colored and fitted shapes, showing the endless highest self-esteem.

in the opposite direction to Samantha (by all means & not in a bad sense), we have Charlotte - the uptown girl – which promenade sweet and chicness on Manhattan streets. I always remember “Char” (as few call) on her pink dress after facing her miscarriage.

miranda is the icon of a working woman, dressing minimalist power suits most of the seasons. But this interesting character is in my opinion the one that most changed through the time, and it is reflected on her clothes as well. By the end of the last season and on the movies, Miranda is a strong and sexy woman, dressing beautifully.

in this challenging world, where summers are heating quickly and passions, people, cities follow that same pattern, it is not just about fashion. It is how you express yourself, your life, your questions, your unique sole

So, make your life a ‘Mille Feuille’!
