Under the Tuscan sun

Summer has officially turned into fall but I’m still in the reminiscence events from earlier this year. In April I was invited to Italy, to visit the studio of Barbara Bologna, the artist behind the clothing brand Area di Barbara Bologna. I spent a long weekend talking about and stalking her design process and designs, especially her F/W12 collection. She also showed me the beautiful Tuscan countryside where she resides; right where the sea and mountains meet. I think I left a huge piece of my heart to Italy: To its friendly people, great food and breathtaking landscape. Plenty of reasons why I must visit this magical place again.

For the pictures a big hand goes to Barbara, Andrea and my dear mom.


If I would have to describe L.A. with just one word, it would be “vibrant”; There is always something going on, whether it is a concert or another kind of cultural happening around the corner. This time around we attended the yearly Downtown art walk and to better capture the atmosphere or rather organized chaos of this evening, I had to eternalize it with my camera. Maybe you can spot the one and only clothing associated purchase I made during my L.A. trip, something that I have been dreaming about for a few years now: The Ann Demeulemeester lace up heeled sandals. I believe good things comes to those who wait, though I have hard time convincing it to my extremely impatient nature… even when there are results like this.
