I spent last weekend in beautiful Saint Tropez. Here you see me in one of my favorite outfits for summer at the pool of the Sezz hotel before leaving for dinner. I just adore everything bohemian this season.

My look: Guipure lace and linen-blend mini dress by Chloé, Aphrodite leather sandalsicon by Valentino, fringed macrame bag, earrings and necklace, all by Chanel.

LoL, Sandra

RED Valentino’s Pop Up Greenhouse

IMG_5506

REDValentino Greenhouse POP UP STORE - LRWhile being in Florence, I was able to explore the new Pop Up Greenhouse by RED Valentino which will officially opens its doors today at Piazza Strozzi.

The temporary space will stay until the 17th of June.

It is a beautiful botanical scenario, where you unexpectedly find yourself in a luxuriant, verdant place like Alice in Wonderland.

Her romantic fantasy and vivid imagination are her means of expression.

IMG_5526A cloud of delicate fluttering white butterflies comes to life, seemingly lifting this airy, magical world and carrying it to a fairytale setting. The decoration is divine.

Gardening elements become objects for displaying exclusive garments. Scarves are enclosed in transparent glass bulb boxes. Galoshes hang in wood crates while colourful costume jewellery is “planted” in small white flower pots.

IMG_5529If you are a romantic woman, you will fall in love with the magical surrounding. The collection was created solely for this fairytale space: each garment and accessory was especially designed and presented in this dreamy, light-hearted setting. Flirty garments and accessories are playfully paired up with garden elements. Work aprons and rubber galoshes becomes whimsical accessories for overalls, while flowers and butterflies embellish the fabrics of dresses, skirts, and accessories, all in a burst of colourful prints.

Even the colours are inspired by nature: rose, hyacinth, and thyme are used on natural materials that are traditional elements of the RED Valentino world.
