Reef and Gardens | new métissages

Nature always provided (and still provides) an enormous source of inspiration for fashion, arts and applied arts. From  gardens to the reef, here’s a  farandole  of luxurious beauties, a delightful panorama of artistic confluences and métissages. A marriage of techinques and different materials for a new grammar of beauty and poetry.

Because poetry is a matter of approach.

MY LIFE IN PINK | La mia vita in rosa

Well, I’ve finally decided  to fight the ordinary grey shades of my life with a pink twist. I know I’m bit a late after Picasso, but, as Diana Vreeland always said, “Pink is the blue navy of India” so…that’s it, my decision came quite naturally and I’ve started living my life in pink for a while!

Gennaio è forse il più crudele dei mesi (e non altri) così ho finalmente deciso di combattere le cinquanta e p sfumature di grigio della mia vita con un tocco di rosa. So di essere un po’ in ritardo dopo Picasso, ma, come Diana Vreeland diceva sempre: “Il rosa è il blu navy of India” così …  ho cominciato la mia vita in rosa per un po ‘!

Let’s start from the shoes: these are Anna Baiguera‘s ballerinas: they’re famous as Porselli and they are good as their french cousins Repetto. My fav shade? The one you can see below, a lovely framboise electro-cool nuance.

Cominciamo dalle scarpe: quelle qui sotto sono le ballerine di Anna Baiguera: conosciute quanto le Porselli e deliziose quanto le cugine francesi Repetto, le ho scelte in una nuance framboise electro-cool….

And of course jewellery!  |  Potevano mancare delle spille?!

Of course I’m thinking about home decoration: why not arrange a rose wall decoration? A farandole des roses is always a good solution: the one below is via LOLITA SAYS SO.

Last, but not least

Keep Calm and stay pinkIt helps, sometimes.

A presto
