ARTIFICE began as an accidental blog in Paris and has grown into a point of view that is decidedly irreverent about the world of art, culture and luxury. ARTIFICE 'at its best' happens when the world of luxury meets boho sensibilities.

A great summary of wooden hangers, and, as as former wardrobe mistress, I can tell you that the best ones have little notches at the top arms, so that they are useful for women's clothes, which have "hanger loops" all sewn into them. Otherwise, they simply drop off to the floor, and the entire purpose of hanging them is, well, all for nought!
You couldn't have picked the more perfect case! Thank you for providing this luxury option as its difficult to navigate among the huge number of cases that are more for show, then protection. This one does both and with great style!
There were many fashion citations that should have been given out for interpretation of the Laws of Punk, which were generally unsuccessful. I await the return of this Gala event to its luxury and artistic roots.
What an interesting concept, to make a Media Pack a more engaging and visual experience to share with an audience of advertisers what their target is like. "Lifestyle" is the 'new black' in the world of luxury marketing so to show how the audience is experiencing products or services in this category, is helpful for brands. I believe in the power of video as the new platform, so this indeed should be a powerful tool for your publication.
Krystal, this is one of the many age old questions about romance that a woman has asked herself since time began. It falls into the same category as "why is the sky blue"? Ask for a set of qualities that are different, such as "intelligence" or "leadership" or "integrity" or "kindness to others" and that elusive "chemistry" instead. You'll be surprised how the field will open up, and you'll find more than you had ever hoped in your love life. Good Luck!
Hayari Couture Gowns placed on the red carpet for Oscar's 2013 by ARTIFICE ATELIER. The Gowns were showcased at LE LOUNGE PRIVEE by BME Entertainment for a Celebrities Showcase. The Perfumes were auctioned for Charity for HALF THE SKY MOVEMENT, 2013.
I love this idea! Walking, my favorite sport, combined with luxury stops along the way! I can only imagine that the food and wine combined into the side trips, would also be a great addition! Sign me up!
Great summary of the collection. I visited the showroom in Paris where I viewed them up close. Though considered by other couturiers to be ready-to-wear, each season unique colorations, structures and elegance prevail. A perfume that is also very successful, makes this luxury brand one of the few that has remained consistent, and, delivers to the clientele.
This Lounge is by far the best one I have seen, so I can truly see why the marriage of chic fashion design and my favorite car...when brought together make something new and fresh in the "Green Room" Luxe lounge category. Bravo!
