My Look: Popcorn

Looking back, the ’90s feels like a golden era—the Game Boy! The Spice Girls! The last cell phone-less generation! but most of all when it comes to the fashion. Do you remember the impossible-to-forget popcorn shirts – aka magic bubble shirts, or scrunchie shirts, as they can also be called – from the late ’90s/early 2000s? They are back! A shirt that’s initially tiny enough to fit a doll, but expands large enough to fit your boyfriend, and that everyone had put on the «never again» fashion list, is making a comeback. I unpinned mine with a matching bra top.

My Look: Blended

Blended by the breathtaking beauty of Santorini and its amazing sunsets, I wore this vibrant look for a night out in Oia. It is an amazing destination to have your vacation with its Cycladian architecture, the picturesque scenery, and the volcanic landscape. Every corner offers a photo opportunity. Make sure to wear flat sandals or wedge platforms for exploring the stone paved alleys of the Greek island. Another thing to have in mind is that the stones might get really slippery, thus you must be careful and don’t risk your safety for a picture.

My look: GG diagonal silk kaftanicon, GG Multicolour platform espadrille, GG Marmont Multicolour small shoulder bag, and cat-eye marbled-acetate sunglasses, all by Gucci faux-pearl tassel earrings by Oscar de la RentaOyster Perpetual 36 with turquoise dial by Rolex, and J’Adior bracelet set by Dior.

My Look: Trésor de la Mer

Versace‘s iconic «Trésor de la Mer» motif celebrates the vibrancy of nature. Originally presented by  Gianni Versace for S/S 1992, the print shows a beautiful array of starfish, coral, and seashells. For S/S 2021, Donatella Versace seeked inspiration from her late brother’s breathtaking collection and created looks for the modern little mermaid. Here, you see me wearing it on my holidays in Santorini, Greece.

My Look: Santorini Nights

Hello from Santorini where I am on holidays with my daughter right now. The Greek island is one of the most photogenic places you can imagine. The view of the contrasting white houses built on the dark lava cliffs surrounded by the blue sky and deep blue sea is absolutely breathtaking. It has been almost 25 years I was here the last time. Today, the city of Oia is buzzing and has become an absolute hot spot. We are staying at the beautiful Mystique Hotel Santorini, where we took these photos before having dinner at the Lure restaurant, located on top of the hotel.

My look: Baroque-print one-shoulder dresswhite Rodeo pop-print shoulder bag, and black leather double platform sandals, all by Versace, and single earring by CHANEL.

Clinique + Jonathan Adler Limited Edition

«Everyone deserves a bit of glamour.» – Jonathan Adler

Your summer is about to get a whole lot brighter, thanks to CLINIQUEicon’s new limited-edition collection with interior designer Jonathan Adler. The just-launched Clinique x Jonathan Adler Collection includes many of Clinique’s best-selling makeup products (including its Lip Pops, Lid Pops and Cheek Pops), in a rainbow of bold, vibrant hues and captures the jet-set glam of his favorite seaside destinations: Palm Beach, Capri, Santorini.

Who is Jonathan Adler?

Born in 1966, Jonathan Adler is an American potter, designer, and author who launched his first ceramic collection in 1993 at Barneys New York. Five years later he expanded into home furnishings, opening his first namesake boutique in Soho, Manhattan. He now has 30 stores and runs an eponymous design business. Adler lives and works in New York City together with his partner Simon Doonan, Barney’s Creative Director Ambassador at Large .

Enjoy this little talk with Jonathan Adler about the collection he created in collaboration with Clinique.

What inspired this collection?
Jet-set glamour. I always think about iconic destinations. Places where women look like their most glamorous selves. I wanted to capture that in makeup. I thought about diving into the Aegean Sea, and being in fabulous places: Palm Beach, Florida. Capri, Italy. Santorini, Greece.

How would you describe your design style?
I call my style modern American glamour. I always try to keep things fresh and new and modern. One of the lines in my manifesto is “We believe in irreverent luxury” and that captures a lot of what I’m about.

What do interior design and makeup have in common?
Good design has the power to transform your mood, like a big squishy sofa you plop into. Makeup is like that, too. It can transform a woman’s day.

What does Clinique mean to you?
Clinique is a classic, iconic brand. It’s always been in my life. I grew up with it in my mother’s and sister’s cabinets. That’s why I was so thrilled when this collaboration came about. My brand is very similar. We’re both about being classic, chic and refreshing.

If this collection had emotions, how would it feel?
It feels fresh! It feels like a trip to Capri. It feels like jumping into the Mediterranean Sea.

What do you love most about this collection?
This collection shows that tiny treasures can bring big pleasures. It’s very chic, very classic, very Clinique. I hope everyone enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thank you, Mr Adler, for giving us your insider scoop on this beautiful collection!
