Golden Rules

A week with plenty beauty arrivals just in time to welcome March.
Kérastase launched the new luxe series “Chronologiste”, introducing an innovative exfoliating rinse-out product for the first time.
“Soin Gommage Renovateur” is to be used prior to the shampoo and the rejuvenating hair mask for deep detox.
The procedure is completed with the “Parfum en Huile”, a scented hair oil conceived by the famous perfumer Alberto Morillas,
giving a shiny and silky look.
I performed the whole ritual -followed by a head and neck massage- at Andreas Coiffure, which left my hair
lightweight and glowing. However, if you prefer to enjoy the ritual at home, you can have an amazing outcome as well especially with a professional hair dryer and brush like the ones by Remington.
Giorgio Armani also launched the Summer 2015 collection consisting of an earthy eye shadow palette, a nude sparkly lipstick, a discreet shimmering powder and a bronze nail polish. In addition, the Armani Prive perfume series counts a new member, “Pivoine Suzhou”, inspired by the gardens of Asia and more specifically the Chinese peonies *eyeroll*
Last but not least, my newest nail lacquer obsession “All eyes on nude” belongs to the Cashmere Matte collection of Essie and it’s the absolute nude color.

Treasures to keep

Fine jewelry tend to bear a breath of elderly air, an aged aesthetics that when seen with a fresh pair of eyes feels like carrying too much, as if they were found in a wealthy old lady’s tired boudoir. 
The use of precious stones like sapphires, rubies and emeralds needs a contemporary look and a modern, elegant and refined approach in order to make a jewel look appealing in the ’10s. This is the main reason why I love 
Yannis Sergakis Adornments. He masters the high aesthetics of an unconventional design, bringing out calm power and unpretensciousness.

La Jarretière

February is a very dull month -well at least for the northern hemisphere- and it’s always nice
to spice things up a little, at any given opportunity. So yes, that is a body jewel. A quite unconventional Jarretière worn on the leg and fitted on the waist, made of silver and “diamond polish” black spinel gemstones, by Angelo di Spirito Rosa. It also comes in a beautiful packaging which makes it the perfect gift for those who dare it.

Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works

During the last years of her life Louise Bourgeois transformed her lived materials, such as old tablecloth and bed linen, into art,
by cutting up and restitching them. An attempt of psychological repair.
“I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned.
The sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole”.
