The new Valentino’s Eau de Toilette Valentina Acqua Floreale is inspired by the original perfume, Valentina. Continuing the story, Acqua Florale appears as a fresh, elegant and sophisticated version, full of light and energy. Rome is the chosen setting and the fragrance is inspired by the summer mornings, imagining our protagonist, the contradictory Valentina, opening the windows and going back to the bed, closing her eyes and letting herself be seduced by the garden’s heady fragrances. A fantasy of luxury and exuberance, which is light and fresh this time. The design of the bottle, with its slight nuances and transparencies, evokes the gauzy summer mornings and sunny gardens of Rome. Illuminated by the silvery cap and topped by a large black pearl, the bottle is protected, like a jewel, inside a pink box embellished with a delicate motif of petals in relief.
I leave you, for your delight, with some exclusive footage of the making of with Freja Beha Erichsen.
This week I was really inspired by the work of two of my favourite designers, Raf Simons and Dries Van Noten and so I did two quick sketches inspired by them. Simons silhouettes were surprisingly feminine but somehowyou don’t care so much about it when you see them, because they look fresh, young and new. I also I loved the concept:
“All the boys were natural tonight. There was nobody who did the hair for them. We showed them as they come so it was very much about the way of dressing, the way of choosing the clothes as a way to express yourself. It was not a camouflage in terms of how you can create yourself with hair or product or styling. You think about the collection and that is what is interesting right now. You can just take it or leave it but hopefully take it. “ Raf Simons for Dazed and Confused
Dries Van Noten‘s dare use of flower prints in a dark palette “Seeing how far you can go with transparent shirts and dévoré and still be able to say, ‘Hey man, this is men’s clothes.'”*, and textures are so bold and elegant. Amazing!
Compañía is a new concept that includes some Spanish brands like la casita de wendy, peSeta, steve mono, the iou project,silent ventures, poti poti and ciszak dalmas.
They want to travel the world with high quality products, working with traditional artisan community preserving heritage techniques. Their first “occupation” will be at the poti poti store in Berlin during the Berlin’s Fashion Week (july 1-7).
we vow to be impractical,
search for happiness and work towards the well being of all,
creating things with a lot of thought and incredible beauty.
understanding our responsability
and sharing our vision with everyone
