Giambattista Valli Spring Couture 2012

Giambattista Valli‘s haute couture collection has been described as pure fairytale.  I couldn’t agree more. I can only dream of having a reason to wear such pristine gowns and cocktail dresses. The belts and jewelry, created out of pure sheets of silver by Luigi Scialanga, as well as the hydrangea-like floral accessories are truly stunning. Can you hear Giambattista’s phone ringing for dress requests for the Oscars?


Mini Bar

I’m looking forward to the first Sunday of February so I can wake up early to scour my local flea market for a vintage bar cart. I figured it’s about time I pull my pretty collection of glassware and bottles out of their cabinets. After all, when the clock strikes 5, having the makings of a cocktail within reach is absolutely necessary – wouldn’t you agree?


Reconstructed Works

Pep Ventosa‘s style of deconstructing and reconstructing photographic images to create new mosaic-like works is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. His process involves taking as many as 101 photographs of a single subject and then piecing them together like a jigsaw puzzle, creating an entirely new visual experience. I am in love with the image of La Pedrera in Barcelona – I think Antoni Gaudí would be proud.
