DENIM. Do you know what I love more than a piece of good denim? Two pieces of good denim – hello canadian tuxedo! Found these jeans a couple of days ago when a massive rainstorm forced me to seek shelter at Zara for an hour. After browsing around for a while I stumbled upon what might just be the perfect jeans – cropped at the ankle? check, nice worn in feel? check, ripped above knee? check, and most importantly, comfortable? double check! All in all, huge thanks to mother nature for leading the way to Zara!
I love visiting factories across England and learn the importance of supporting the UK manufacturing sector, providing employment to locals, supporting British made products and nurture young emerging talents. My last year’s visits to Abraham Moon & Sons Mill, Dr Martens, Lavenham, and Tusting were immensely in-depth and insightful, despite the long train journeys and sore bottom I didn’t mind. Thankfully, there are more factory visits to come this year.
I’ve been receiving lots of designers/PR invitations to studio visits to meet young designers and see their latest projects, but this designer have caught my attention. A while ago I visited this lovely contemporary jewellery designer and maker, Michelle Oh at her cubby hole studio in Clerkenwell. Great personality and lots of laughter. Michelle’s work is based on her ‘day to day observations of human relationships and nature’, inspired by the things she collected from her travels from seaside adventures to forest walks. A compilation of organic sources such as twigs, barnacles, kelp et al, to create unique jewellery pieces, intricately detailed from every angle and handcrafted (and locally sourced) by Michelle in her studio. Do check out Michelle’s collection online, they are wonderful to look at. I’ve been contemplating for days whether to have a custom piece made by Michelle, I have an idea in mind. We shall see.

It looks like Cannes is the place where most of my dreams come true: during this edition of the film festival I had the chance to take part, for my first time, to the Amfar Gala, one of the most important non-profit organizations fighting against AIDS.
I was invited by Lovegold, initiative created by World Gold Council, which made me live an incredible experience: at Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc I watched Duran Duran performing live, attended the cool fashionshow organized by Carine Roitfeld, had dinner with Leonardo Di Caprio at the table next to mine (all my reportage on Instagram), admired Annie Leibovitz and got touched when Sharon Stone announced the earning of the charity auctions: 25 millions euros, the biggest record ever.
For the night I chose to wear golden jewels as the theme of the Gala, a long Roberto Cavalli dress and my hair up in a messy chignon. What do you say about it?
Cannes sembra ormai essere la città in cui i miei sogni si realizzano: durante questa edizione del festival del cinema ho avuto la possibilità di partecipare, per la mia prima volta, alla cena di gala di Amfar, una delle più importanti organizzazioni non-profit al mondo per la lotta contro l’AIDS.
Sono stata invitata a partecipare proprio da Lovegold, iniziativa creata dal World Gold Council, che mi ha fatto vivere un’esperienza incredibile: all’Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc ho ascoltato live i Duran Duran, assistito ad una delle passerelle più divertenti organizzata da Carine Roitfeld, cenato con Leonardo Di Caprio al tavolo di fianco al mio (resoconto completo sul mio profilo di Instagram), ammirato un’artista come Annie Leibovitz dal vivo e mi sono emozionata quando Sharon Stone ha annunciato il ricavato dell’asta di beneficenza: 25 milioni di euro, il record assoluto.
Per l’occasione ho scelto di indossare gioielli dorati come voleva il tema del gala, un abito lungo di Roberto Cavalli e capelli raccolti in uno chignon spettinato. Che ne dite?
