  • Manlul 76: Anniversary in Paris

    Manlul goes to Paris! Lacoste ss18 Fashion Show Hello! I’m back and exciting to tell you my adventures like the last one at the Paris Fashion Week. One more season Gala and I met there and millions of things happened (as usual), you will se it soon… The first show I went to was Lacoste. The french brand turned 85 and chose Paris to present the SS18 collection in a beautiful parade with live music. Although sportswear is always present in the Lacoste ready to wear shows, this time we could see a little retrospective of the brand but also the most trendy looks. Colors and fabrics were the highlights of the collection all presented in a set that evoked a tennis court. Going back to the city of love always brings back pleasure, just to walk around and admire the amazing architecture can be so inspiring. I can not wait to go back !. In the photos I’m wearing a Lacoste total look. Happy Birthday Crocodile !. @miguelcarrizo   ¡Hola! Estoy de vuelta y con muchas ganas de seguir contando mis aventuras como la última en la Fashion Week de París. Una temporada más Gala y yo nos reunimos […] The post Manlul 76: Anniversary in Paris appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

  • MILAN/PARIS FW: FASHION NEVER ENDS

    Una vez más, dejo atrás otro mes de Fashion Weeks repleto de experiencias nuevas. Milán, como siempre, no defrauda. Sus calles inspiran moda y tendencia por si solas y, cuando se visten de gala, se desata la magia. Desfiles como Max Mara, Alberta Ferreti, Prada… Todo el día de aquí para allá mirando el reloj, pero luciendo looks maravillosos de mis firmas favoritas (una de las cosas que más me gustan de este mes de locura). Once again, I leave behind another full of new experiences FW month. Milan, as always, does not disappoint. Its streets inspire fashion and trend by itself and, when they dress up, magic unleashes. Some of the shows I attended were Max Mara, Alberta Ferreti, Prada… All day going from here to there, looking at my watch but, on the other hand, wearing wonderful looks from my favorite brands (one of the things I like the most this month of madness). Aunque me encanta viajar, estar fuera de NY durante tanto tiempo puede resultar muy cansado. Al final de cada día, daría lo que fuera por poder meterme en mi cama o sentarme en mi sofá. Esta vez, en Milán me he sentido realmente como […] The post MILAN/PARIS FW: FASHION NEVER ENDS appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

  • SEPTEMBER: FASHION WEEKS MADNESS

    En solo tres semanas he estado en Nueva York, Seattle, Londres, Milán y París. A pesar de todos los aviones, ya sabéis que me da pánico volar, y de arrastrar las maletas, estos días son fechas irremplazables para aquellos que amamos la moda. In just three weeks, I’ve been in New York, Seattle, London, Milan and, next week, will be in Paris. Despite all the planes, you know I’m scared of flying, and the dragging of suitcases, these days are irreplaceable dates for those who love fashion. De todas las semanas internacionales de la moda, la de NY es para mi la más relajada porque “la juego en casa” sin maletas ni aviones. Sin embargo, este año, en medio de todos los desfiles, he querido viajar a Seattle para asistir a la conferencia “Create & Cultivate”. Poder estar como panelista de “Modern Moguls: las mujeres que conquistan internet” compartiendo mis experiencias y conocimiento del sector ha sido una experiencia única. Of all of the international Fashion Weeks, NY is the most relaxed because I “play at home”, without suitcases or planes. However, this year, among all the shows, I wanted to travel to Seattle to attend to the “Create & […] The post SEPTEMBER: FASHION WEEKS MADNESS appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

  • TOMMY HILFIGER FASHION SHOW

    Tras algunos años ausente, este año he vuelto a cubrir la London FW. La verdad es que ha sido entrañable volver a casa aunque haya sido una visita corta. Londres es un tanto diferente a las otras semanas internacionales de la moda pero hay algo que se repite en todas: el ritmo frenético de desfiles, presentaciones, eventos… Una agenda llena de citas especiales. Sin embargo, algunos shows tienen la capacidad de dejar una huella imborrable. Esto es lo que ocurrió ayer durante el desfile de Tommy Hilfiger en LFW. After a few years away, I have covered again the London FW. Truth is that it has been endearing to be back home even though it has been a short visit. London’s is somewhat different from the other international fashion weeks but there is something common at all of them: the frenzied pace of shows, the presentations, events … Myschedule full of special dates. However, some shows can leave an indelible mark. This is what happened yesterday during the Tommy Hilfiger show. TOMMY NOW , nos obsequió con una colección para mujer y hombre diseñada por Gigi Hadid, convirtiendo el Roundhouse de Londres en su circo particular. Las luces, la música, […] The post TOMMY HILFIGER FASHION SHOW appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

  • SUMMER DAYS IN CADAQUÉS

    Un paraíso de azules que invita a perderse entre sus blancas y empinadas callejuelas; los colores del mediterráneo son los protagonistas en este pequeño rincón al noreste de España, en Cataluña. No hay verano sin esta parada, para mí, tan necesaria. A blue paradise invites you to get lost on it´s white and and steep tiny streets. Mediterranean colors are the main characters of this small village in Catalonia, Spain. A must every summer! Que este es uno de mis lugares preferidos, no es nuevo, ya me habéis visto pulular por este mágico lugar muchas veces, con amigos o en pareja. Un año más regreso con John y la verdad es que nos ha venido fenomenal para desconectar de verdad. It´s not a surprise, Cadaqués is one of my favourite places, as you have seen me around with friends or my boyfriend. One year more, I return back with John in order to find 24/7 peace and relax. Aquí “solo” he dormido, paseado, nadado y comido de maravilla. Recorrer esto es una gozada y mas en un coche tan divertido como este, me encanta esta chatarra azul 😉 I have been sleeping, swimming, walking and having wonderful meals. Being here […] The post SUMMER DAYS IN CADAQUÉS appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

Paris, Paris, Paris, Is there a more beautiful city? Certainly it can’t be more special. It’s always amazing to be here, enjoying Haute Couture week.

No es una semana fácil, hay mucho trabajo y estrés. Además, hay que estar perfectamente preparada. Para ello debemos llevar los aliados muy a mano. The city is dressed up and we with it; influencers, fashion editors, creative directors, and specially the clients: main stars of the week. On the other hand, it’s not an easy week, as it’s a lot of work and stress. When you need to be ready at any time, you need to have your allies very close.

  • ¿Estamos preparadas?

    En junio suenan todas las alarmas para avisarnos de que lo mejor del año está por llegar pero ¿estamos preparadas? Unas más que otras, de eso estoy segura 😉 pero aún estamos a tiempo. Nuestro cuerpo y nuestro pelo son los mejores aliados siempre. Eso sí, tenemos que cuidarlos. In June, alarms sound off to warn us that the best is yet to come, but, are we ready? Some more than others, I’m sure about that 😉 but we’re still on time. Our body and our hair are always the best allies. Of course, we have to take care of them. En verano todo el mundo espera hacer aquello que más le gusta. Y es que viajar, leer sin prisa, bañarse hasta arrugarse o echar esa siesta en una tumbona son pequeños placeres a los que nadie renuncia durante sus vacaciones, un intangible que no tiene precio. In summer, everyone wants to do what they enjoy most. Traveling, reading without haste, swimming or taking naps on a hammock, are small pleasures that no one gives up during their vacation, an intangible that is priceless. Pero antes de viajar con la mente, hay que ponerse manos a la obra, porque aunque […] The post ¿Estamos preparadas? appeared first on Amlul by Gala González. […]

  • Manlul Of The Month: Hey Stella!

    Discover The New Manlul Of The Month! Descubre el nuevo Hombre del mes! The first time I met this grey eyed Catalan actor and saw his friendly face, I was surprised by his resemblance to the quintessential actor: Marlon ! I think that’s how we started to get to know each other, talking about cinema and about  Brando. Ricard Sales is the new Manlul of The Month. Many of you may know this man from Barcelona from his work on films and tv, but Ricard has devoted himself to theatre and acting research since the age of fifteen, a hobby that led him to take courses all over the world.  He always liked adventures and that impetus for the unknown is what led him to take several theater courses in the cradle of contemporary interpretation, Russia. Not only that, he also created a master of Stanislavski technique at the National Theater in Minsk for five years. Our man of the month likes to unleash his second passion after the performance: TO FLY! @ricardsales fought for another of his dreams, and after getting his license to fly he bought a small plane with which he travels to hidden places or simply goes to see the beach […] The post Manlul Of The Month: Hey Stella! appeared first on Amlul by Gala González.

  • Desert Tales: Louis Vuitton

    Recuerdas cuando todo el mundo estaba en el desierto ese fin de semana de Abril. Elegimos el camino equivocado, pero con un propósito. Queríamos perdernos y ser libres. Y esto es parte de lo que ocurrió. Remember when everyone was at the desert that weekend of April. Well, we took the wrong turn, but with a purpose. We wanted to get lost and free. And this is part of what happened. Fotografías realizadas en el desierto con look de Louis Vuitton. Una producción de iCreative. Shot in the desert wearing Louis Vuitton. An iCreative production.
