EN - This spring will be very colourful, with a predominance of cool colours: indigo, Persian blue, jade green and turquoise. There will be a lot of flower prints and clashing prints, as well as polychrome striped prints (no black & white stripes for this year). The dresses will be tight waisted with full circle skirts in fifties style and the colours will be powder pink for the day and red for the evening. Summer will not be deprived of the sun colours: orange will be both bright and soft (peach-orange shade), while yellow will adopt a saffron shade. And... there will be also a bit of twenties style!

IT -  Questa primavera sarà molto colorata, con una predominanza di colori freddi: indaco, blu di Persia, verde giada e turchese. Ci saranno anche molte fantasie (soprattutto floreali, ma non solo) e le classiche righe (coloratissime, non in bianco & nero). Gli abiti saranno segnati in vita, con gonne a ruota molto anni ’50, color cipria per il giorno e rosso per la sera. Che estate sarebbe senza un po’ di giallo e arancione? L’arancione sarà sia brillante che  tenue, color pesca, mentre il giallo avrà una tonalità color zafferano. Ed infine, saremo anche un po’ anni ’20!

Pixie


EN - Michelle Williams is the girl with the trendy short haircut of the moment. Her lovely pixie cut is very cute, especially when she wears a red lipstick and leaves her make-up slightly shiny for a more natural effect (the Italian make-up artist Diego Dalla Palma says that it is enough to do not use the face powder).
In case that you take the plunge, at the appointment with the hairdresser it will be better to bring some pictures of Michelle Williams from different angles. If you needed a further encouragement, you could repeat to yourself the advice that Baron St. Fontanel told Sabrina to conquer her beloved David: “Oh, you young people are so old-fashioned. Have you not heard? We are building rockets to reach the moon! To begin with, you must stop looking like a horse*”, referring to her ponytail. Then, once you leave the hairdresser's studio, you might say to your friends: “If you should have any difficulty recognising me, I shall be the most sophisticated woman at the Glen Cove station*”. You bet! With a short haircut like Michelle Williams, you would definitely be the most sophisticated woman of the city!

IT - Michelle Williams è la ragazza con il taglio corto trendy del momento. Il suo taglio (in inglese pixie cut, taglio alla folletto) è davvero delizioso, in particolare quando indossa un rossetto acceso e lascia il make-up lievemente lucido per un effetto più naturale (Diego Dalla Palma dice che basta eliminare la cipria).
Nel caso in cui vi decidiate a fare il grande passo, sarebbe meglio portare al parrucchiere tre suoi primi piani (fronte, profilo e retro). Se poi vi servisse un ulteriore incoraggiamento, potreste sempre ripetervi il consiglio che diede il Barone St. Fontanel a Sabrina per conquistare l'uomo di cui era innamorata: “Impossibile? Ah, quanto siete all'antica voi giovani! Cosa dite mai? Ma se è questa l'epoca dell'impossibile! Tanto per incominciare, smettetela di fare il cavallo*”, riferendosi alla coda di cavallo di Sabrina. Infine, uscite dal parrucchiere, potreste poi dire ai vostri amici: “Se non mi riconoscerai, ricordati che sarò la ragazza più sofisticata di tutta la stazione*”. Potete proprio scommetterci, con un taglio di capelli come Michelle Williams, sareste la ragazza più sofisticata di tutta la città!



* Film Sabrina, 1954.
