PORCA MISERIA.

In Designers, I like, Lighting, Uncategorized on 24/10/2013 at 16:52

Don’t be frightened, I know it is a very loved Italian saying and not one of the most polite , but in this case it is the truth.It really expresses what is in the mind.

Can you imagine that one day this should happen

Well one of my favourite light designers did.

It is the name given to the chandelier he designed years ago.

The little funny story, behind it, is that he named the chandelier” Zabriskie Point” in relation to the famous movie by the Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni where at a given point the hill cliff  villa explodes and one sees the images again and again… beautiful.

When he unveiled his creation, the public screamed ….”PORCA MISERIA ” and surely also MAMMA MIA……….and that is why he renamed it.

In Fashion, I like on 10/09/2012 at 07:26

 

I’ve always liked classic items in a wardrobe and one of these is the CAMEL COAT. Where else to look for one then MAXMARA.

The undisputed brand has the most iconic and the most beautifully cut coats in cashmere and wool. the same with the trench coat that you will buy at BURBERRY.

I love their contemporary looks with a classic twist.

I show you some examples of coats that I like this season ,not only camel but some other too

I love all these looks Perfect for the winters we don’t have anymore.

Wish you all a nice monday and a perfect beginning of the week.

PRADA DID IT AGAIN

In Designers, Fashion, I like on 03/09/2012 at 20:01

Fashion House PRADA created again for this season the most trendsetting and innovative shoes.

A classic shoe where the base is covered in rubber.It reminded me immediately of the “GUETRES’ whom gentleman were wearing to protect their shoes from dirt and dust.In the other way round. Was this an inspiration?

I think that it is fabulous that each season Miuccia Prada is setting the tone of things to come and to be copied. If they are elegant is irrelevant. It all depends on who will wear them. Women with style will wear them with a LBD or a black smoking and be chic and then other women will want to absolutely have these in their garderobe and will mix them whit the wrong clothes, only because these shoes will be so recognisable and because they are  PRADA and FASHION.

With thanks to the BLOG DOUBT IT LOVE IT for the pictures.

I send loads of positive energy  to all the shoe lovers.

I love this classic bag made by Italian brand FURLA.

Since it was launched last year, it has been an instant success because of its timeless design and the declination of different materials it is made of. In 2 sizes.And affordable.
