The beauty's utopia

As I have finally finished my exams with success and so I am officially on holiday, some mornings ago I went to see the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition at Palazzo Chiablese. The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of english painters, poets and critics, founded in 1848 by William Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what it considered the mechanistic approach first adopted by Mannerist artists who succeeded Raffaello and Michelangelo. Its members accepted the concept of history painting and mimesis, imitation of nature, as central to the purpose of art. The Pre-Raphaelite defined themselves as a reform movement, created a distinct name for their form of art, and published a periodical, the Germ, to promote their ideas. I really loved the exhibition because It allowed me to see some of my favorite paintings such as Ofelia from John Everett Millais, and Lady Lilith from Dante Rossetti.

La simplicité

Nothing more simple than a simple white t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans, as Jane Birkin has taught. I really love this basic and simple combination, especially worn with a pair of wedge sandals. Mine are from APC and I have bought them a month ago but the strange weather didn't allow me to wear them until now. The tan leather is so gorgeous and at the same time comfortable, and they can also be worn with everything that I have in my summer closet.

Coromandel

I really do love red lipsticks and nail polish and speaking about make up, they are my truly essentials. My favorite combination right now is Coromandel from Chanel. Even if I'm not an expert on this subject, I can tell you that for me this is the best shade of red: not too dark, not too orange. It's just perfect, making them wearable on a daily basis and to every single event.

Run to black


I'm not a big fan of colors as you have noticed, especially of the bright ones. I rarely use them  and also in summer time the total black is one of my favorite combinations. It's classic, simple and always chic, especially if it's paired with Chanel accessories. Tomorrow I will have my last exam of the session and I couldn't be happier, so I will be finally able to sleep at night instead working with my laptop.

Meet me in the alley




Even if we are in the first days of summer in Turin is still cold and as you can see from these pictures, this morning I was still wearing jeans, combined with a silk blouse and wedges espadrilles (that I bought some years ago) in order to go to the market to buy some flowers and fresh fruits.
