Italian Press Day in Munich

Le Silla

WOW, just wow. Today I went to the Italian Press Day in Munich and met some really talented new designers and up and coming brands from Italy. Some of them you already know; Aquazzura, Le Silla, Stephanel and PAROSH, and some are brand new names such as Mantu and Zanellato.

A few of the labels are very individual and artsy; I picked a few special pieces out of their collections for myself, and just look at the pictures, they are a-maz-ing.

Of course the collections are for autumn 15/16, so we get to see what is awaiting us in the fall. I really love how there are so many colours and combinations instead of the usual black and grey winter look. It seems this winter will not be so triste after all…

I really love Aquazzura shoes, it is easy to get lost in all the choices of so many beautiful pieces – Germans are right when they say “Choice brings torture”.

Stephanel is as always quietly stunning with their easy chick every day style. I usually buy my cashmere with them: even though the pieces are very simple they are always fashionable and every woman looks good in them, whilst being perfectly cosy.

Le Silla makes me want to purr, and their autumn 15/16 boots are my favourite… we know why Italian ladies always look so classy and yet sexy.

Discovering Zanellato was exciting for me because the accessory brand is unpresumptuous and made for everyone and every day. It’s not easy to find something that compliments an everyday look. Same excitement with Mantu whose top fabric quality and lovely cuts rock the 60-70ies look. Their capes, coats and skirts are an absolute must if you ask me, and up high on my shopping list.

Last but not least I can’t stop obsessing about how to combine all the new colours and textures PAROSH has to offer – the are the epiphany of how I see Autumn 15/16, I almost can’t wait.

 

It is always exhilarating for me to discover new brands and study the seasons new looks, and I’m really happy I got to attend the Press day. I know you love it, too, so I will keep you posted. Hope you like the pictures I took for you. XX

How to design a Tuscan House.

collage-tuscany
Having spent such a magical and wonderful holiday with my family in Tuscany, I really feel the need to add a new category to my Blog: ‘International Interior Design’. Those few days filled me up with energy and inspiration, and I really would like to share them with you!
The main charm of the Tuscan landscape and design is not luxury or excess, but a beautiful simplicity and pure, natural essence. Being there, breathing the fresh clean air and eating the simple but delicious Tuscan dishes is simply deeply relaxing.

Here you can see a few pictures of what I call a perfect Tuscan house… Cosy, bohemian and absolutely designed with love. It blends in with the surrounding landscape, complimenting and highlighting nature with its stone walls, wooden aspects and vintage frames. The timeless details (candles, lamps and the lovely lounge chairs) contribute to the stunning look.

Just a few steps away from the house you find yourself surrounded by lemon trees and olive branches, making the Tuscan experience even more intense. I love how the new carpets sport a vintage patina to round up the look without losing comfort. This is, indeed, a place to wind down, relax and just enjoy life!

End of the text coming as well in few min with the names and details about furniture.

Luca Gabriel 1st Birthday

1.Geburtstag.Lucas_0006

Really, what can I say!? I cannot believe it has been exactly one year since my life radically changed, and I became happier than I could have imagined. I don’t want to sound too sentimental or bore you with sappy mother-love stories, but I am extremely happy and full of joy, and I want to share that with you…

I know that today is a short day, and tomorrow Luca will be one year and a day old. And then another, and another. Fast-forward and he’s going to college. I can’t really grasp how time flies, and I’m a bit anxious that I might miss an important moment of his life. In my head he is still a baby, but when I look at him I can see he is a little boy already. Being as busy as I am, I have to make sure I take the time and celebrate each step of his life with him, especially these days that indicate a new chapter of his life.

So today is his first birthday, and I will celebrate it with our family and friends like there is no other.

I have to admit that I enjoy the sweet baby party things immensely and loved the preparations – Masha and Bear cake (Ukrainian heritage: the most adorable cartoon with a bear taking care of a cheeky little girl), balloons, gifts and of course lots of singing and games. People are coming from all over the world to be there, and he is in serious danger of being cuddled and coddled untill he drops.

 

I have been blessed with him, and I will do my best to keep him as healthy, happy and loved, so that I can send him on his way as strong and secure as can be. As we continue celebrating Luca Gabriel’s Birthday I wish you lots of Love and Happy Moments in your life!!!

 

His Godmother shared with us this beautiful poem by the amazing Sufi poet Khalil Gibran:

“On Children”

 

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

 

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,

which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them,

but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

 

You are the bows from which your children

as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,

and He bends you with His might

that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies,

so He loves also the bow that is stable.

I am wearing my absolutely favorite dress by vyshyvankabyvitakin,ukrainian gorgeous and talented designer Vita Kin.

Luca wearing his first Dolce&Gabbana blazer and jeans,sneakers by Converse,just like a real “Cool Dude”:)
