Mexican Makeover for Ancient Greek Sandals

ancient-greek-sandals-coqui-coqui

Right now, I am so much dreaming about a sunshine getaway. Honestly, I cannot wait for the holidays to start. Great news is that Ancient Greek Sandals has the right footwear made for us. The gorgeous shoe brand has collaborated with Caravana – the brand founded by Francesca Bonato, owner of famous Tulum resort Coqui Coqui – meaning that for the first time the sandals will be made in Mexico rather than in Greece.

Dior Joaillerie – Rose Des Vents

SlidesRose-des-vents-la-collection-de-joaillerie-Dior-qui-porte-bonheur

Behind the symbol of travel, we find Christian Dior’s star and the idea of a good luck charm, but also the rose, his favourite flower.” – Victoire de Castellane

EMILIA-CLARKE-for-DIOR-JEWELRY-‘ROSE-DES-VENTS’-2015-1

From Christian Dior’s garden at Granville to the discovery of faraway lands, with Paris’ 8th arrondissement cropping up along with way, the Rose des Vents collection from Dior Joaillerie, designed by Victoire de Castellane, is a voyage on the four winds through the House’s history. It features Christian Dior’s good-luck star and the rose, his favorite flower.

The new campaign, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, reveals a Dior woman with a natural, timeless beauty wearing the Rose des Vents creations.

Rose-des_vents_rings

This year, the medallion comes in versions with a pavé of diamonds, as well as rose gold and onyx, and has been joined by four pendants and five rings embellished with a little rope of gold that twists around the finger and follows the outline of the jewel. Being reversible, they can be worn either star or stone side out.

In the US, the new make-up launch has caused some controversy as critical voices accused the cosmetics company of misusing cultural symbols and designs. Fact is that the collection is inspired by the lush feeling of festival season where some Native American details, such as headdresses and beaded clothing belong to the iconic looks. Relax, everyone! Join the tribe and feel the vibe!

The collection is in stores now. In Switzerland at MAC counters and stores and as well as online.

Last week I was in Cannes for the Film Festival and attended some absolutely amazing events. One of them was an invite by Caroline Scheufele to join her for Chopard‘s annual grand soirée. This year’s «Wild» theme was taken literally and Diana Ross took the stage with an incredible performance in front of a digital waterfall and surrounded by thousands of palm trees that transformed the venue into a true wild jungle full of diamonds and jewels. Guests, among them Kate Moss, Petra Nemcova, Adriana Lima and Kendall Jenner, danced until late to the sounds of DJ Mark Ronson.
