THE STRIPED SHIRT

ENG The striped shirt is for man what black stiletto is for woman: a must-have in the wardrobe. In business, the shirt appears frequently with pretty stripes, under a nice suit. The best known is called the “Bengal“, and it is an alternation of blue or pale pink with white, the space between the stripes is not larger than a pinhead. Looking at it from a certain distance, it gives the impression that the shirt is of a plain color, and that is why it is worn by many bankers. If you’d like to make your statement even stronger, I…

BREAD&BUTTER BY ZALANDO

ENG Last weekend I had the chance to attend the first Bread & Butter in Berlin organized by Zalando, a perfect blend of fashion, music and food. Those who follow me on my social networks have already had a glimpse of the event, for others here they are with detail. The Bread and Butter was held for three days, from September 2 to 4 and I have to admit that we, the guests, could not imagine what Zalando has organized for us. Upon our arrival in Berlin on Friday, we headed straight to the hotel to leave our suitcases and…

WHEN AT THE 50th MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL

And we could enjoy the festival’s atmosphere, before and after the concert,…

ENG If you follow me on my social networks, you know that last month I went to Spain for a short week. Certainly it was for vacation, but also for family reasons. First of all, my father finished his studies at university and I am very proud of him! Actually, eight years ago, he decided to return to school and to finish his career. This is a process that does not happen often and I’m very proud of him. He did not leave his life aside, he continued to be present for us, his family and I know it was…

LITTLE WALK IN CASTRES

ENG Just a few weeks ago, I had the chance to go to Castres, a small town within one hour’s drive from Toulouse, in the middle of the Languedoc-Roussillon French region.  My friend Romina from Blaastyle was invited by A-Derma – a dermatological cosmetics brand – and she invited me to join her for the trip.  Castres is a small village with lots of charms. We stayed in a small hotel downtown, which was the perfect location to go around and visit the area surrounding. And it is precisely during one of our walks that we took these pictures. I…
