What i really needed for my easter holidays was to stay home. Just stay there.
And relax by taking some good care of the house, cooking, dying psychedelic easter eggs and taking the usual annual photos of my wisteria tree, in full bloom. I also enjoyed a semi-celebrational vegie thai dinner at Miss-Athenes’s. Very. And some good music. And a hair mask. And matching my eggs with details of the house.
I spent my Saturday noon at Fashion Workshop by Vicky Kagia, participating in the panel of the 6th Fashion Talk (Workshop’s series of fashion seminars), amongst publishers and journalists, debating on Printed versus Digital Magazines. A very interesting conversation and an exciting experience overall.

my friend told me that this pair of Gianvito Rossi sandals looks like a Praying Mantis and i thought, it definitely deserves a post
“Idi Prikos” is the latest mania and secret love of Eleni Psychouli: having spent hours and hours embroidering, Eleni created a folk-art treasure consisting of handmade pillow cases, tableclothes and towels, by combining grandma’s crochet handcrafts, silk and velvet fabrics from her trips around the world, vintage ribbons and cloths. The outcome is a greek-fusion collage memoire, of past decades that you’ve never lived and places you’ve never visited, but you keep them in your heart with warmth
The collection was presented yesterday at TR2 concept store, and standed out perfectly in the white sterilized enviroment
Marni presents, during Salone del Mobile 2012, a collection of 100 chairs which have been made in Colombia by ex-prisoners, aiming to reinforce their resettlement into social and working life. All chairs consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads.
The chairs are linked to the “L’Arte del Ritratto” project through a photo exhibition, created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Iodice, who will use the chairs as background for a series of portraits of Marni teams from different departments. “L’Arte del Ritratto” is an homage dedicated to them, destined to last in time, which is also accompanied by a video that reports the shooting experience.
The collection of 100 chairs, the photo exhibition and the video will be presented at the Marni boutique and all photos will be published on ANTICAMERA2, Marni’s online magazine on marni.com during the Salone del Mobile 2012. The amount raised from the sale of the chairs will be entirely donated.
