Desigual changes its way naming Jean-Paul Goude creative director

Desigual is the renowned Spanish brand that everybody loves for its playful and energetic attitude.

This year the wind of change has hitten the label that, surprising all the fashion system, has named Jean-Paul Goude as creative director. But this won’t be the only task of the histrionic Goude, he will take care of every perspective of Desigual, from productions creation to events and marketing activities.

Jean-Paul Goude is a French illustrator and director. He was also the artistic director of Esquire New York in the 70s and he was worked for several famous labels such as Perrier, Citroën, Kodak, Chanel and Shiseido.

The first collection signed by Jean-Paul Goude for the Spring/Summer 2018 was presented during New York Fashion Week .

The catwalk marked a big turning point for the Desigual, that is restylling its image, but the fans of the label were not disappointed about it has the pieces presented continued to mantain the features that makes Desigual famous around the globe… Unconventionality, genuineness and positivity!

As David Meire, operational director of Desigual, said “ The artistic collaboration with Jean-Paul Goude represents a step forward in Desigual’s will to allow talents of countless disciplines to contribute and enrich the diversity of the brand thanks to their amazing works

My personal thoughts about the collection is that I see a more mature Desigual, a Desigual that is reaching another dimension. Inspired by the jungle, every print overlaps the other in an harmonious and carefree dance. Fluid and stratified shapes are amalgamated on raffia, cotton, leather and denim. The multicolor sneakers and the raffia anklet become a must to have for the next season.

I will definetely continue to follow Desigual and Jean-Paul Goude in their new successful path.

A Summer must have

I am not a Summer person.

Okay let me explain, I love the sun, the breeze and the color of the season but I don’t love so much the obsessive heat that sometimes Summer carries with it. I like better the chilling ending part of the season and those fresh Summer night where you can wrap yourself in a soft cozy blanket.

This is why, every season, I never miss the chance to get a new one and, for this year, I bring with me one of the most beautiful I have ever had!

With an effortlessy chic, glamorous and super cool style, my Hayley Menzis Portobello blaket is become my favorite ever! The zig zag print and the pompom made it really eye-catching and perfect to be styled with every look, from the most basic to the most elegant one. It add an ultra plus of charme, sophistication and bold attitude.

And ( best news for you! ) all her blankets are now on SUPER SALE so this is the right time to grab yours home. In addition, I have seen a preview of the Fall Winter collection and it left me speechless and amazed, you will love it as much as I did.

#YOURMOVE with Swatch SKIN

Time is the most precious, valuable and correct thing.

It never comes back and it always makes me think that we have to live the moment we are in. Learning from the past, projected into the future but always with the mind on the now.

Having a watch on my wrist always remind me how important is to take care of your time and what I want is dynamic and energetic watch that can represent my mood.

This is why I have with me the new Swatch SKIN watch, that is the new product of Swatch’s thinnest model line. And for the launch of this new watch, the Swiss maison has created the #YOURMOVE campaign that is  a tale of freedom, exposing life’s pivotal moments when individuals allow themselves to embrace emotion, create change and dance with the unknown.

Colorful, playful, glamorous or classy, every single watch of the collection has the same coolness that characterized it.

The new SKIN collection is my must for the Summer. Pink in the morning, Metal for the afternoon meetings and sensual Bronze for the night date.

A touch of positivity and a deep strenght of wanna live life to the fullest, this is for me the SKIN collection by Swatch. A real manifesto of an inner intention of wellness that comes out as in the inside then the outside and find its ispiration in a watch, that can become your best friend.

 

And you? What is #YOURMOVE ?

My experience at Hotel Manin during Milano Men Fashion Week

The last Milano Men Fashion Week was full of glamorous and beautiful collections.

I attended several shows and presentations and one of the biggest rush moment is the change of look. So is important to have a place to stay that allow you to change your clothes, refresh yourself or simply relax a little bit before going on.

I always recover myself and use it as a home the Hotel Manin , a 4 stars hotel located in the real centre of the city of Milan. Just a few steps away from the fashion district and with a breathless view over Giardini Indro Montanelli, Hotel Manin is the best place to stay both for business and for pleasure trips.

Is one of the city’s historic hotels and features 124 rooms, including 7 junior suites and 1 suite with jacuzzi on the terrace. Every room is equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV LCD and free Wi-Fi. There is also a gym with free access from 7:00AM until 11:00PM, four meeting rooms with various ceiling projectors and microphones and inside the hotel there are the Manin Garden, my favorite chilling place, and the Manin Restaurant with its regional, Italian and international cuisine.

The best room of the hotel, if I can recommend you one, is  the Panoramic Suite & Pool which has a priceless view of the top floor of the Duomo and the Indro Montanelli Gardens. It is equipped with a large terrace with veranda including a small pool with whirlpool, heated in Winter.

From 1904, Hotel Manin is property of the Colombo family.

I will definetely come to this hotel every time I am in the city for my business and I can recommend it to you without any doubt. It’s luxury, with a staff who has the answers for all your need and it has a really strategic position.

Home makeover with Made in Design Italia

Comprare casa è una pietra miliare nella vita di una persona.

Sinonimo di acquisita indipendenza, la ricerca di una casa su misura è tanto faticosa quanto elettrizzante e quando la si ha trovata… ecco che inizia il vero divertimento! L’ arredo che rispecchi il proprio essere è stata sicuramente la mia parte preferita e ora che ho deciso di fare un makeover totale del mio appartamento ho pensato di fare degli acquisti online per velocizzare il tutto.

Dopo varie peregrinazioni virtuali, sono approdata su Made in Design Italia ed è stato amore a primo click. Made in Design è il sito leader numero 1 in Europa della vendita online di arredamento design, illuminazione e decorazione e nel loro distaccamento italiano mi sono persa tra una console Ibride e una sospensione Vertigo, tra una sedia di Kartell e un tavolo di Moooi.

Made in Design è stata una grande fonte di ispirazione in quanto ero partita per arredare nuovamente il mio appartamento con dei mobili di antiquariato ma, nel mentre che curiosavo sul sito, ho avuto l’idea sì di utilizzare pezzi antichi ma di abbinarli ad altri prettamente moderni e il risultato che si sta venendo a creare mi sta piacendo da morire!

Il mio primo acquisto sul sito è stata la lampada da tavolo Bourgie di Kartell bianca con il paralume interno dorato, ma potete trovarla anche in altre varianti di colore ovvero  trasparente, nero, cromato e dorato. La Bourgie è la rivisitazione di un grande classico della maison, la Baroque, a cui viene aggiunto un tocco più glamour e altamente sofisticato. La lampada è in policarbonato con un paralume ad effetto plissetato, il quale è regolabile in 3 altezze diverse grazie all’utilizzo di apposito supporto. Grazie ad esso, la lampada assume l’altezza di 68, 73 e 78 centimetri.

Il prodotto è di alta gamma e lusso e ne sono rimasta assolutamente soddisfatta.

La mia esperienza di acquisto su Made in Design si è rivelata altrettanto soddisfacente e semplice.

La Bourgie era disponibile in pronta consegna e mi è stata recapita a casa in 3 giorni. Sono rimasta molto colpita dall’ imballaggio meticoloso e altamente protettivo, che preservava il prodotto all’interno. Decisamente un altro punto a favore di questo negozio online.

Attualmente su Made in Design sono corso i Saldi estivi con un 40% di sconto su una vasta selezione che potete trovare qui e inoltre, se volete fare un regalo ma non siete sicuri su cosa scegliere, il sito offre la possibilità di donare una Gift Card, da 10 Euro fino a oltre 500 Euro, semplicemente selezionando l’importo desiderato. La card verrà automaticamente recapitata via e-mail al destinatario oppure se si preferisce consegnarla personalmente bisogna semplicemente inserire il proprio indirizzo email e la card verrà ricevuta in pochi minuti. La gift card è valida su tutti i prodotti presenti sul sito.

Il mio primo acquisto è stato assolutamente ottimo e lo ha fatto diventare il mio shop online di design di fiducia, tanto è che ho deciso di acquistare per la sala da pranzo le sedie Louis Ghost , che arrivano in un set da 4 ( già scontate evviva, stavano aspettando me!!) , trasparenti in stile Louis XVI e che non vedo l’ora di avere!

Sotto troverete una selezione di pezzi che ho già inserito nel carrello  e che aspetto con ansia di poter inserire in casa mia. Vi consiglio assolutamente questo negozio per affidabilità, alta qualità di prodotti e serietà.

The Fashion Interview | Pamela Rota, creative director of Warloom

As part of my job, I’m always searching for new talented designers and brand characterized by excellence and quality.

Warloom is an Italian label that I appreciate and love since some years. Born and raised in Italy, each product is handmade with high quality leathers and took inspiration from the world of 50s circus.

What I love about Warloom? Very easy question. Their base concept dedicated to all the indipendent women out there ( yes you can start listening to Destiny’s Child song while reading ) that are extremely cool, self confident and classy. And above all, I adore Pamela, the founder and creative mind of the brand. Tall, blonde, beautiful, with a fierce attitude and a gentle soul.

And Pamela today gives us a very deep interview about Warloom world and her own world.

How was born Warloom and why did you choose this name for your own brand?

Warloom is a fantasy name, inspired by the world of the 50s American circus.

Which is the main source of inspiration for your work?

I draw inspiration from the world of the circus, in constant motion as modern women who inspired me for my creations. The colors of circus are vibrant, there is an air of magic and joy, the world of acrobats and of clowns who are both playful but with a little decadent aura.

Tell us something about your Spring / Summer 2017, which is the concept of the collection?

Is inspired by Canada, to be exact to the Canadian circus and then to the forests and to the typical colors of Fall of that great nation.

What would you like to communicate through your bags? What message would you like to come to the people who decide to wear a Warloom?

The female world is in constantly changing, a woman who is wearing a Warloom bag is both a business woman, a mother and a woman who goes out and amazed and consequently her ideal bag must adapt to every circumstance, be comfortable and, at the same time, has determination and an identity to be shown.

What is the must-have bag of your new collection? The one you could would never live without?

I love Arlette ( the name of the founder of the Gruss circus) in black leather and python rock, a perfect combination of elegance and practicality.

In your imagination, how is the woman who wears your bags?

The Warloom woman is definitely a woman busy on multiple fronts, like social, family, work, traveling and interested in art.

What are the three must-haves for Pamela Rota and the 3 flop? And to what trend you say Yes and No?

I would never give away to Kaftan in Summer, a Warloom leather and python bag and a big hat to be used under the sun. I don’t appreciate look too heavy and built for the Summer, I love the simplicity, in order to give more space to accessories.

Is there is a character in the world of fashion, film, entertainment or in your life who has influenced you the most?

I have worked with worldwide famous designers, like Tom Ford, Armani, I love Uma Thurman who has grit and a strong personality and is so beautiful.

Your collection was welcomed with enthusiasm by the fashion addicts, press and buyers, sanctioning an absolute successful debut. What are your future plans? Do you have a dream you want to become reality?

To this day I consider myself really lucky, because despite the wide competition, Warloom is a brand that has soared in a very deep way in a big panorama as that of fashion accessories, we continue in our plan of opening both multi-brand stores and single-brand. In China we will open two later this year and in the US in Denver a totally avant-garde concept store. My my biggest dream is to ensure that every woman can wear a Warloom bag!

 

Thank you Pamela!

Carolina
