Touch of Lightness
The perception of colors
Colors inspire the mind and produce a thousand sensations. They influence our being: wearing a sky blue dress gives lightness to our day… while a royal blue sheath dress, at an elegant dinner, immediately makes us feel at the top.
But the colors aren't just light or dark, warm or cold. They are also light or heavy. The sky blue, aquamarine, pastel, recall an idea of lightness: and you are already thinking about a walk on the beach, early in the morning. Periwinkle, ultramarine blue, sapphire evoke memories, ancient elegance, and you can already imagine yourself in a warm summer sunset. Colors have a weight ... light or heavy characterize our life
Blue is ... a touch of lightness
Often the days are marked by commitments heavy.
Thus, we end up paying little attention to ourselves and we put it first lightness: a state of mind, an attitude, a precious quality to which we have dedicated the new edition of our Digital.
Because ... you know someone who doesn't need a touch of lightness?
The Color of Spring
"It is with spring that the flowers, with all their beneficial effects, begin to turn blue: hydrangeas, plumbago, cornflower and marigolds. Explosions of pale blue, intense greens and creamy whites. "Antonia Flowers, who has always been there, tells us about "guru" florist by MyCupOfTea.
Floral trends go beyond the beauty of the single flower: today more than ever the creation of a bouquet made of petals, leaves, shapes, colors is a unique, exclusive art that takes on great meaning and new depth. And 2021 means being unique.
So let's create our personal, floral recipe: with most of 2020 spent separated from loved ones, giving away (and treating yourself) something meaningful has become a priority. In addition to beautiful flowers, plants and greenery are also a great choice, especially those with "air-purifying qualities" and the "ability to add life to shady or dark areas".
Style ... runs online!
“Digital Luxury: transforming brands & consumer experiences” (Ed. Sage - 258 pp) by Wided Batat, international marketing expert, arrives in bookstores.
For a long time, traditional luxury brands have looked with suspicion (and snobbishness) at the digital world, its language and the opportunities it offers.
Wider Barat analyzes and explains how the great brands of fashion, jewelry and design are learning, not without difficulty, to convey style, products and ideas using the web and social networks. An epochal revolution that concerns us closely, if only we think about how much time we dedicate to discovering, evaluating and buying fashion online, mixing physical space and digital space, in what the author has defined as "phygital".
An interesting and enlightening read that helps us understand how followers, likes, comments and hashtags are changing the way we see luxury.
We support "Sulla Strada Onlus"
A non-profit association, made up of people who want to dedicate their lives to the defense and promotion of children's rights, all over the world.
Sulla Strada was born and follows projects in Guatemala and Italy financed for 90% by private donations with the primary objective of improving the conditions of the little ones: poor are not only those children without means of support, but also children alone, without families , who cannot go to school or who have suffered terrible violence. For all of them we are committed to doing our part. Because children are the greatest hope for change.
