Feelings and imagery on the same palette

My previous post was part of diffrent inspiring images, materials and colors spinning around my mind these days.
I am pretty touched by the visionary choice of colours and fabrics by favourite designers such as Peter Pilotto, Roland Mouret, Gianni Serra and Marco de Vincenzo. They just somehow connected with our earth...tuning also with the activities of volcan Ejafjalla in Iceland...

Peter Pilotto, FW1011

Roland Mouret, FW1011

Terra di Siena and around. Jewelries and fav palette

I have noticed that recently, my unconditional affection for nude/skin color has been partly enlarged to include a new palette, which starts from pale coral and goes through Terra di Siena red.

Plus, I have been captured by images of reddish bricks and walls, dunes, clouds and rocks.
Easy to understand why last week I was touched and felt in love with the jewelry lookbooks by ManiaMania first and Estelle Devé later.

The most curious thing is that both brands are based in Australia. And somehow the research and inspiration behind their latest collections have kinda connection. ManiaMania "Real life awaits us" is inspired to "The Holy mountain" by Jodorowsky. Yon can tell that just looking at the pictures. They put together Mesoamerican culture, stones that look like pieces of wild nature and rocks, the 70ies, shamanism and metaphysical.

On the other side we have Davé, who called the collection "Lunar Mare", defined as "medley of science fiction fantasy and tribal nuances", inspiring futuristic images of a rough natural scenery/elegant body armour. A glimpse of a space odyssey which collects images of the past, magic and tribal.

I love both collections.
And they reminded me of sweet Fanny Raponi, whose collection I found out almost a year ago by now and used for a shooting in the mines.... She is a real artist, and I love the way she uses vintage silver objects to create and carve these supper-poetic accessories...

Ups...I lost myself! didn't I want to post about my new enlarged beloved palette??!?!?!?!
New post needed ASAP

Pinch me...

...I am dreaming...

Iris van Herpen. She educated her one of a kind talent @ Victor &Rolf and Alexander Mcqueen. I have a veneration for her. Mad about the FW1011 Synesthesia Collection

A special touch and sensitiveness

In my total ignorance I discovered the Print Shop area of Urban Outfitters online shop just recently. Maybe too recently. And only through our friend OTO who is also contributing to the project with an art print. I love the idea. They can deliver your preferred subject as a diffrent sized print or as a cover for your laptop or Iphone budies..! Just love it!
While I was all excited about some delicious drawings and graphics I just fell in love with Fred Einaudi's job and went immediately to his website...


This is what I found trying to figure out how couldn't I found him before. And went to his bio, maybe blown away by my WIKI-MANIA.
This is the answer I found.

Going back to his art, I am crazy about theVictorian/Edwardian inspired subjects, portraied with sinister details or inside apocalictic athmospheres.
I think I want to share what I mostly loved. And that's it.

Wanted Now!

Alienina @ Salone del Mobile 2010

I am definitely looking forward to go and see the new Alienina's necklace collection tomorrow! She is showing it insidethe project "Regeneration" here in Milano, during this Salone del Mobile 2010.
I have loved the lookbook she sent out with the invitation!
Here cable, blind tape and cord necklaces look simply gorgeous on this super elegant lady!

A very nice positioning

An early 80ies skinhead style flavour

Me and Valentina have been talking alot about a new "'proper" influence we are heavily feeling for us, the new us, the proper "us". But this is another story, so, going back to the subject, it all started with an inner connection I guess. And her talking about a sauge aviator bomber obsession she got from a recent "LEON" movie night.
And then a lot of inspiration came together...I got back to the movie "This is England" by Shane Meadows.

I saw it almost one year ago and I have loved it very much. And loved the style. Thanx to dan to feel that subculture style so much, I think he's really sensitive towards subculture styles. but this is another story again so...back to the point.
Dan just got a couple crucial items:
- a green jacket from the 80ies, in agreen patterned fabric, with raglan padded shoulders, that I see as a retro but contemporary version of that Ma-1 aviator;
- a pair of Dr Martens by Raf Simmons in Oxblood with buckles.
Mixing everything with his partial side shaved hair, thick Persol sunglasses, vintage striped Lonsdale Tee and tight cropped stone washed grey jeans ended up to be a great interpretation of that look.

Now I just crave for a perfect female version of it. That will obviously end up being much more of a mix of styles, but I also love the original!

All these images I found added to some favourite items I love right now just gave me a variation on the theme,in term of style. And this is what I put together (still thinking that the Burberry Prorsum boot would have been the perfect piece...!!):
