TREND SPARK! Week 1 | 12.01.2008


By Alexandra Suhner, London Editor | Week 1 | 12.01.2008

"Happy New Year! For the first Trend Spark! of this year, I am going to share some of my resolutions for 2008. I hardly ever make New Year's resolutions but this year I decided to set myself some goals, within reach". - Alexandra Suhner

Fashion Spark!

Culture Spark!

ValentinoThis year I plan on buying fewer clothes. Vivienne Westwood has said we should all buy less, and I completely agree with her. It's ethically correct, and it's about the "buying right" theory, not just buying whatever.

I am going to focus more on getting those key pieces that last me years. My goal purchase for the beginning of this year is a piece from Valentino's last Ready-to-Wear collection. I won't be able to afford his last Haute Couture collection, and I probably can't afford his Ready-to-Wear, but it's at least a great resolution to have!

Christian LacroixAnother resolution I have is to go to more art exhibitions. I usually manage to make it to the big ones but I need to be checking out more smaller exhibitions and galleries. I never regret making the trip, even though it seems like such a hassle until you get there.

My must-see exhibition for 2008 so far is the Christian Lacroix exhibition in Paris, apparently gorgeously arranged by collection inspiration themes. This is also a great excuse to go to visit the permanent collection at the Musee de Mode and Textile (Museum of Fashion and Textiles) and go shopping in Paris!

Health Spark!

Home Spark!

Health Spark!We all say we are going to get healthy, eat better, exercise, blah blah blah every January, and we rarely stick to it.

Fortunately, my personal trainer takes care of the exercise regime (and I follow it religiously since he costs me a fortune.) But, in terms of eating, I have decided to make one major change:

I am only going to eat free range chicken. There has been a lot of press in the British newspapers recently about the horrible conditions that battery chickens suffer. It's also a question of health and taste, as well as ethics. I know it is a bit more expensive, but I am a grown up now (see Home Spark!), so its time to start making some changes for the better.
DysonI officially became an adult on January 5th when I gave up having a night out so I could afford a Dyson vacuum cleaner. It was expensive, but worth every penny. One of the blogs I read -David Report- stated that a Dyson was a Must Not Have for 2008.

Well, maybe I'm am slow to jump on the bandwagon, or maybe I prefer to go with the "tried and tested " products, but I completely disagree. If you have plush carpets and allergies, or just like to have an obsessively clean flat, then a Dyson is definitely a good choice. So I guess my last resolution is to have a sparkling clean house (my cleaner also makes this slightly more achievable.) And did I mention that Dyson has collaborated with Issey Miyake?
