Chic Couture

Sensual, sophisticated and ultra-feminine: these are the characteristics of the Chic Couture collection from Intimissimi for autumn/winter 2014.

The highlight is the triangle bra made of lace, adorned with a bow, and with a jewel in the center. The testimonial Ana Beatriz Barros is perfect for the elegant spirit of the collection.

Organic Delights

The positive trend of organic and biodynamic practices arrives in the world of wine. Here are a few tips to help you know what to drink and why, along with the different offerings available in the regions of Italy

Green wines are feeding the planet. The spirit of the time is to think green, to recapture the spaces eroded by the entropy of human cultures. Now in the vineyard the time and the rhythm of our ancestral nature has come together to create perfect wines that are organic. And with good prices, too. From the Langhe (Piedmont), to the Val d’Orcia (Tuscany), and to the South (Sicily, Puglia etc…), along with many other regions companies are producing organic and biodynamic wines. These wines are really great. We are many years away from the first organic wines that had a horrible taste. Today, even a wine without sulfites has the quality and the flavor of a great bottle. And what was a whim of a few people has now become a habit for everyone.

The Dsquared2 Brothers

They are non-conformists, Italian tailor traditionalists and they love bold experiments. We have talked to Dean and Dan Caten, the founders of Dsquared2

Eclectic, nonconformist, rebellious – these are the words that best describe the works of the dynamic Dsquared2 duo. 20 years ago, in 1994, twins Dean and Dan founded a brand that has become famous all over the world. We tried to find out the secret of their success.

Dsquared2 is a fashion empire with boutiques around the globe: in Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Dubai. How did you get into fashion? Why did you decide to become designers?

We have always been passionate about fashion. When we were kids, we created outfits for our sisters, and advised them about what to wear. We had a lot of fun. That feeling of happiness made us think that it would be great to create something of our own. In the course of time the plans became reality, and eventually we have become who we are now.

On The Fringes

Forget about the roaring and rebellious Twenties and the hippies of the Seventies, fringes are back but in a new way

They’re forward and versatile in different ways and materials; leathers and tassels are just two of the stand outs so far. Whether they’re on clothes, bags, shoes or pants, it doesn’t matter, the important thing is that is covered by fringes.

Alfa Romeo – Revamped

Alfa Romeo excites as their newest creation takes to the asphalt

Alfa Romeo, if you live in Italy you are sure to be familiar with this iconic Italian brand, and rightly so. Being such a landmark, and having garnered acclaim due to their unique engines and designs for more than a century, car enthusiasts the world over looked to Alfa Romeo with hungry eyes to see what mechanized magic they would pull out of the little black Modena box.

Fortunately, the craftsmen of Alfa Romeo, hard at work concocting their next masterpiece were ready to deliver. Though, it does seem that they couldn’t decide exactly what style of vehicle they wished to create. Should it be a drift racer’s dream, with its graceful pirouette deceptive of its heart-throbbing daredevil desires? A futuristic sculpture with curved contours that arc into the next century? A sleek, chic urban head turning roadster, so couture, so well tailored that its Milanese heritage would be evident to all its admirers? Obviously their only choice was but to cleverly combine all these elements into their latest triumph.
