Looking forward to spring

Miranda Kerr at David Jones department store on Liverpool Street, Sydney on February 16, 2012.

EN - I really look forward to the arrival of spring! And I can't wait to put scarves, gloves, hats and woollen sweaters at the bottom of the cupboard!
Because the temperatures in the Old Continent are still pretty wintry, there is nothing left to do but look towards the other side of the world, Australia, where it's summer. Miranda Kerr is simply delightful with the hair gathered up in a classical ballet bun, beautiful pastel pink trousers and emerald green bag.
This outfit of Miranda Kerr (which reminds me this one of Inès de La Fressange) is so pleasantly summery that I can't help but long for spring.

IT - Non vedo l'ora che arrivi la primavera e di conservare in fondo all'armadio sciarpe, guanti, cappelli e maglioni di lana!
Poiché le temperature nel Vecchio Continente sono ancora prettamente invernali, non mi resta che volgere lo sguardo dall'altra parte del mondo, verso il Nuovissimo Continente, dove è estate, e ammirare l'incantevole Miranda Kerr con chignon da ballerina di danza classica, deliziosi pantaloni rosa pastello e borsetta verde smeraldo.
Questo look di Miranda Kerr (che mi ricorda molto questo di Inès de La Fressange) è così piacevolmente estivo che mi fa desiderare ancora più intensamente l'arrivo della primavera!

Late winter

Taylor Swift at Charbonnel et Walker in Old Bond Street and Taylor Swift in in Hyde Park, London, January 24, 2012.


EN - Parks, chocolate houses, long walks, bistros are all nice tips for a delicious weekend of late winter.
Taylor Swift, strolling in the elegant Bond Street, takes shelter from the thin and famous London rain in one of the oldest and most renowned chocolatiers of London (Charbonnel et Walker). Then, at the first sunny spell, she continues with a walk at the park.
Olivia Palermo takes advantage of a sunny morning for an outdoor lunch in the most bohemian neighbourhood of New York City, enjoying a sweet foretaste of spring.
Among my personal tips of late winter, there is also enjoying the wonderful sky of February when it is unclouded, because it is the most beautiful sky of the year thanks to its deep azure and the cool air!


IT - Parchi, pasticcerie, lunghe passeggiate, bistro... ecco tanti piccoli spunti per un delizioso week-end di fine inverno!
Taylor Swift, passeggiando per l'elegantissima Bond Street, trova riparo dalla sottile e celebre pioggia londinese in una delle più antiche e rinomate cioccolaterie di Londra (Charbonnel et Walker), proseguendo poi, alla prima schiarita, con un giro al parco.
Olivia Palermo approfitta di una mattinata di sole per pranzare all'aperto nella zona più bohémien di New York, assaporando un dolce anticipo di primavera.
Tra i miei spunti personali di tardo inverno, c'è anche quello di godermi il meraviglioso cielo di febbraio quando è terso, perché è il più bel cielo dell'anno con il suo azzurro intenso e l'aria fina!

The empire of light

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, bk. V, ch. 1)

René Magritte, The Empire of Light (L'Empire des lumières), 1954, Brussels, Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.


EN - The Empire of Light is an oxymoron where René Magritte, le saboteur tranquille, confuses the watcher through the illusion of the fiction that seems real, through the deception of the day that coexists with the night, that is through an exquisitely surrealist technique.

IT - L'Impero delle luci è un ossimoro dove René Magritte, le saboteur tranquille, confonde l'osservatore - con tecnica squisitamente surrealista - attraverso l'illusione dell'irreale che sembra reale, attraverso l'inganno del giorno che coesiste con la notte.
