Shopping Of Convenience

We have prepared an outlet mini-guide disclosing the most advantageous places to buy brand items

Outlet Village Serravalle

Perhaps it is the most famous discount center in Italy. Serravalle was among the first to appear and thanks to a huge selection of shops and a convenient location, it has quickly gained popularity. It’s easy to get here both from Milan and, for example, from Genoa. The list of boutiques is constantly updated and now it exceeds 180. Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Ferragamo, Etro, Moncler, Dsquared2, Elena Miro, Furla, Michael Kors, Pollini, and Fratelli Rossetti are among the brands presented here. If your outfit lacks jewelry don’t forget to pop into Bulgari or Damiani. For men who appreciate Italian handmade suits there are Brioni, Loro Piana, Facis, and Del Mare 1911.

Real Estate In Rome

5 reasons to buy:


“The state within the state” lies in Rome, on the Monte Vaticano hill, and has its own flag, anthem and government, as well as the Academy of Sciences, a local newspaper and radio station. In old times the Vatican was not inhabited as people in ancient Rome considered it a holy place. In 326, after the advent of Christianity, the Basilica of Constantine was raised over the potential Saint Peter’s tomb. Since then, this place has become actively populated and now it is one of the most sought-after spots.

Between Art And Fashion

Marni collaborated with two French artists, Christophe Joubert and Francois-Xavier Tavy-Sacley and one Italian, Stefano Favaro, for the creation of an art collection.

The main inspiration comes from the Art Brut and Outsiders Art, forms of artistic expression that connect to the outside market and institutions. Formal freedom and strong personality are the key points.

“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.”

Tesla: Green Speed

The futuristic dream of an eco friendly personal vehicle is now a very attainable reality

In today’s modern world of uncertainty, where the price per barrel of petroleum is a daily announcement in the news, major cities experience rolling black outs in the summer, and the global community at large is acutely aware of the need to make ecologically sound choices, we are all asking ourselves, ‘What can I do?’, and, ‘How can I gain stability in the chaos?’.

In 2003 a group of inspired Silicon Valley engineers set out with those questions in mind. Their vision- to create sustainable electric vehicles. From this company mission Tesla Motors was born. These visionaries not only succeeded in accomplishing their goals but they have won the heart and minds of those people dedicated to a brighter future. With over 2,000 employees and 31 locations around the world it’s clear to see that Tesla Motors isn’t just a trend for yoga enthusiasts and wheat grass smoothie drinkers. No, it is a trend of the future and many people are happy to ride the ultra modern wave of tomorrow.

Fall Fashion Fantasy

When the first leaves turn yellow you know that fall is coming to town. Not long after that the winter will follow, so you want your little ones to be warm and cute. Here are the best picks for the upcoming season, perfect for little princesses and pirates

For all the warmer items you need to pick up this season, don’t worry, we bring you our top picks. Probably the most essential for rainy days are good rubber boots. You want the kids’ feet to stay dry and they will surly enjoy making a splash. A nice raincoat is also a plus, and the transparent ones with polka dot prints will make any cloudy day brighter. Also bringing joy into the colder part of the year are the printed puffy jackets that are a must for keeping warm even during the coldest days. Interesting prints are always a nice way to add some color and if you opt for the one with animals you might also bring a bit of a summer feeling into any outfit. Coats are another great option and they come in so many cute variations that are hard to resist. Green, yellow, red and purple are quite colorful and easy to maintain. If you feel it’s warm enough for something slightly lighter, vests are not only practical but also trendy. For girls the faux fur vests can be bought from most of the designers this season, while for boys a denim vest is the best. Put them over a blouse or a hoodie and the kids will be ready in a minute.

Time For Fur

Winter 2014 will be the golden age of fur accessories, especially bags, which populate the collections of almost every high fashion house

The possibilities are many and often very eccentric. We remember Cara Delevingne opening the Fendi fashion show exhibiting a mini Karl Lagerfeld in fur, an ironic tribute that was both funny and ultra-luxurious. It’s called the Bag Boy Karlito and it is the evolution of the Bag Bugs of Fendi. Who doesn’t want one?
