Fuchsia


EN - Welcome spring! The days are getting brighter and the nature is gradually awakening, introducing new wonderful colours as background to our days. Now we just have to start the transition from the dark winter colours to the shining spring ones. I am going to begin right away with a fuchsia lipstick.

FR - Bienvenue printemps! Les journées sont plus lumineuses et la nature se réveille doucement et se colorie. Il ne reste plus qu'à commencer la transition des couleurs foncées d'hiver vers celles brillantes printanières. Je débute tout de suite par le rouge à lèvres, qui à partir d'aujourd'hui sera rigoureusement fuchsia.

IT - Finalmente è primavera! Le giornate sono più luminose e la natura pian piano si risveglia e si colora. Non resta che dare inizio alla transizione dai colori scuri e invernali a quelli brillanti primaverili. Io incomincio subito dal rossetto, da oggi rigorosamente fucsia.

Charming old ladies


EN - Since I was a child I have been always terribly fascinated by the style and manners of classy old ladies. They transmit me the same sensations of glamour and elegance like some old graceful movies or photo albums. The elderly refined ladies are charming ambassadors of a timeless class, good manners and old-fashioned habits that - unfortunately - seem to disappear in our fast changing world.

IT - Sin da piccola lo stile e le maniere delle anziane signore raffinate hanno esercitato su di me sempre un forte fascino. Queste signore mi trasmettono quelle stesse sensazioni di glamour ed eleganza che provo, per esempio, guardando certi vecchi  film o album di fotografie, così meravigliosamente aggraziati. Le anziane signore fini sono affascinanti ambasciatrici di una classe senza tempo, buone maniere e antiche usanze che sembrano sempre più rare nella nostra epoca moderna.

Mirrored sunglasses


EN - What do you think about the mirrored sunglasses? I think I am in love with them! I imagine them during a sultry summer afternoon in a Mediterranean seaside resort, while I am sipping an ice tea at a trendy café and the beautiful panorama of the blue sky and turquoise sea is reflected by the lens. Or I imagine the mirrored sunglasses lighting up a grey snowy day (of course in the city... too predictable wearing them during the ski holidays!).
Simply cool!


IT - Che ne pensate degli occhiali da sole con lenti specchiate? Io li adoro! Già mi vedo, durante un afoso pomeriggio estivo, seduta al bar più alla moda di qualche splendida località balneare del Mediterraneo, mentre sorseggio un tè freddo e il paesaggio azzurro del cielo che si fonde con il mare si specchia sulle lenti... oppure mi immagino indossarli in una grigia e fredda giornata invernale in cui nevica (naturalmente in città... troppo scontato indossare gli occhiali specchiati in montagna!). 
Stupendi!
