Fashion Accessories to Shine with on Vacation

The best fashion accessories for a vacation can update your holiday style, keeping you up to date with trends without needing to buy a whole new wardrobe. By choosing new fashion accessories, you leave yourself with more spending money whilst you are away and it’s better for the environment as it cuts unnecessary waste. 

fashion jewellery

Wherever you’re on vacation, reworking your outfits can be simply achieved with a new hat, a pair of sunglasses, an item of jewellery or an on-trend bag. 

 

Jewellery

A dainty ring can go unnoticed, and if a pendant is kept covered by your top, your jewellery will have little impact on helping you shine on vacation. Be on-trend with jewellery that makes a statement and will draw in compliments. 

Floral jewellery, particularly earrings, has taken the fashion world by storm, with bold colours across the spectrum. Layered earrings work well, though require more piercings. Alternatively, combine diamonds, colour and 24k gold earrings for a look that will get you noticed. Laboratory diamonds work well as it is almost impossible to know they are not real. 

A multilayered shell bracelet complete with gold links and clasp will add a bohemian feel to your look.

 

New bag

Wicker and shell basket bag

A straw basket bag is perfect for any beach vacation. Go retro with a straw bag with a cowrie shell and tassel trim design with enough space to store all you need for the beach. A cotton lining and zip will keep the sand out.

 

Geometric clutch bag

Geometric patterns are on-trend and make an impact against a little black dress. Try a bohemian style delicately woven from soft cotton or one with embellishments to really stand out in the crowd. These are an easy way to update an outfit without taking up precious luggage space. Add a beaded shoulder strap to a plain clutch bag for a different look that adds some shine when out in the evening.

 

Abaca bucket bag

Your bag can be a conversation starter not just because it looks good, but because it makes a statement from the material from which it is made.  An abaca bucket bag is both silky and translucent in a neutral colour that will lift any warm-weather ensemble. Abaca is a species of banana that is highly durable, flexible and resistant to saltwater damage, making it perfect for your beach holidays. 

 

Headwear

A wide-brimmed natural straw hat with a contrasting ribbon and oversized bow is fashionable whether you are on holiday in the Hollywood Hills or Bali. To make an elegant statement, go retro with a wide brim hat in black with tan leather trim and gold buckle for a touch of luxury. 

 

Hair brooches

Barrettes and hair brooches are perfect for adding something special to an evening look, but they also add a touch of finesse to an everyday outfit. Gemstones, pearls, bows and florals are just some of the feminine touches you can choose from. A diamanté-embellished shell on a gold-tone fastening creates a perfect statement accessory to tousled beach waves. 

 

Headbands

When it is no longer time to wear a summer hat, a plush velvet headband encrusted with shells and pearls that will really make you shine on holiday.  Consider a headband made from twisted loops completely covered in beads that look like tiaras. 

A simpler woven patterned cotton headband will enhance any beach aesthetic when worn with free-flowing dresses. For unusual designs, look for fairtrade brands actively working alongside women worldwide to improve their quality of life through access to healthcare and education.

Femme Luxe Finery Haul & Review

A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I was in the mood for some jumpsuits (check my jumpsuits for women blog post here), and that was when I met the Femme Luxe website, so this time I’m writing a Femme Luxe Review to help who’s looking for more info on this online store.

So, this time I’ll be showing you what I’ve got from the website. I went for some different kind of clothing: from a white bodysuit to a lounge wear set! Check everything I’ve choose this time and more information about this website.

 

• Femme Luxe Haul Try on & Review:

Femme Luxe Finery review

Like I wrote on my previous post, I was positively surprised with the quality of the clothing from this website and this time I tried more than just jumpsuits. So my choices this time included a polka dot white and black dress, a lounge wear set, a white lace bodysuit (on that very trend style made with lace and some transparency) and a little white jacket.

If you’re wondering if Femme Luxe is a safe website and if it’s real, yes, it is. All four pieces that I had chosen arrived well and they were just like the photos showed on their website. Therefore, the clothes do arrive and from this and from my past experience, all of them were just like pictured on the website.

Bonus point is that the prices are very affordable and the quality of fabric and sewing are fine! So here are my photos showing how the clothes wear and how I styled them:

 

• White Polka Dot Dress:

It’s no surprise that I LOVE DRESSES, right? So, when I saw this asymmetric polka dot dress at Femme Luxe, I was in love! It’s such a cute dress and it’s also perfect for this time of the year, when the weather starts to change a bit. The asymmetric detail of one long sleeve makes it very delicate, but also very fashionable!

Cute white dress from Femme Luxe

 

Since the dress is super cute, I went for a classy style! Matching it with a white pair of shoes and a white bag, plus some classy big black sunglasses:

• White Lace Bodysuit from Femme Luxe:

If you have Instagram (BTW, if you don’t follow me yet, don’t forget to follow @manuluize for your daily dose of fashion and beauty inspiration), you probably noticed how the lace bodysuit trend took over Insta outfits lately! So there I was in the mood to try it!

So I decided to pick a white lace bodysuit from Femme Luxe this time, to see how I’d feel about it and how to style it. My favourite way to style it is to wear with another layer, like a jacket or even a shirt or a long sleeved top. Plus, add a layered necklace and you will be super trendy!

• White jacket:

White jacket Femme Luxe review

Something that I noted that I was missing for a while on my closet was a white jacket! So when I saw this one, I knew that was it! Something as basic as a white jacket is always useful to match with so many different outfits and being white, it will never go out of style and it can be paired with so many different colours.

Here I styled it with the same lace bodysuit, creating a different outfit. But this jacket will be so versatile to pair with some many pieces, from tank tops to dresses, with shorts, skirts and pants.

 

• Lounge wear set:

I’m one of those people who loves beautiful pyjamas and loungewear, I mean, why wouldn’t you be stylish when you’re inside the house or just running errands, right? So, I felt in love with this lounge wear set with a pair of pants and a cropped top that’s so cute and super lovely:

Loungewear set by Femme Luxe

 

I actually had thought it would be like a set of sweatpants, but the fabric is actually different, it’s lighter, so it’s perfect even for the not so cold days and for staying in. It’s cute and super comfy, definitely a win-win kind of outfit!

You can wear this set with a pair of sneakers or ballerina flats and you’re ready to leave the house too!

Nothing like a beautiful longe wear set, that if you need to quickly go out, you don’t even have to think that much, makeup and go! 😉

Jumpsuits for women: Outfits to inspire you

I always liked how jumpsuits for women looked, all so elegant! But I actually have no idea how, until recently, I didn’t own any long jumpsuits! No idea how that happened, but, well, problem is solved now, since I was really in the mood for some jumpsuits, so I’ve just got 3 of them at once (well, I had to compensate for all those years, right?).

And I must add that I’m LOVING wearing them! I love the elegant vibe the jumpsuits give and I’ve just chosen some models from a website called Femme Luxe and I’m loving them!

So get ready to be inspired with 3 different jumpsuits for women outfits that I worn recently here in Milan:

• Jumpsuits for women: 3 outfits to inspire YOU

The first jumpsuit that I chose was this asymmetric one with a long sleeve, it’s very elegant, but being asymmetric, it definitely has a fashion vibe to it. I went for an elegant outfit, pairing this black jumpsuit with black patent leather high heels and a black and gold belt.

Black jumpsuit Femme Luxe

Since this jumpsuit is an one-shoulder jumpsuit, I went for big and bold earrings to match the look I was going for.

Ordering online for the first time in a new website is not knowing how the fabric will turn out to be, right? Happily, I’ve been enjoying all my jumpsuits’ quality, they are all well made, the fabric is soft and it feels just like I was expecting them all to be.

 

Manu Luize - Jumpsuit Outfit

When we think about jumpsuits for women, we have a lot of options and different models to choose from! With long sleeve, sleeveless, strapless, in a solid color or printed, cute, cool or sexy! The options of outfits with jumpsuits are really endless, making it possible to wear a different one whenever you’re in the mood for a different style.

 

Well, if you’re in the mood for something sexy, this strapless jumpsuit can definitely be a great choice, like I did on my second outfit!

Strapless jumpsuit
photo: olucasp

It’s a black sweetheart neck jumpsuit, that feels so comfortable to wear, but it’s kind of sexy at the same time.

To make it a femme fatale outfit, just pair this strapless jumpsuit with high heels and bold accessories. To make it more elegant, I chose this golden belt to dress up my outfit with more elegance. A red lipstick can always help on the sexiness. 😉

Strapless black jumpsuit
photo: olucasp

The reason why I always choose elegant accessories whenever I’m going for a sexy look is because it will keep my outfit sexy, but elegant at the same time (which is my style), so I always prefer to dress it up to create a balance avoiding being too sexy (which is never a problem, just it’s not my personal style 😉 ).

Of course I went for a little more sexy approach with this outfit, but you can also wear this strapless jumpsuit with ballet flats to make it a little more “dress down“/casual.

 

Matchy-matchy, take a look on how my heels match my golden belt on this outfit, sometimes, it’s a little detail that can make an outfit even more special:

Back of the jumpsuit

Black outfits are always appreciated, but some colour is also good, right?

So moving on from the black outfits, I also chose a light peach coloured jumpsuit in a very different style. This jumpsuit is in a light colour and it’s made in a very classy and elegant style with frill sleeves. Making it a great outfit for the day or even for going out, specially now that we’re in the summer:

Here’s my light/cute makeup for this elegant look and my accessories are from Les Georgettes:

Are you in the mood of a jumpsuit too now?

Jumpsuits for women can be a great piece to wear at any time of the year, it goes well in the summer, but it’s also perfect for the fall/winter season, all you have to do is add a layer to it (with a jacket/coat). And you’re ready to go!

One of the advantages of a jumpsuit is that since it’s a “all-in-one” piece, it’s super easy to wear, because you don’t have to match a top + bottom part. So they are also perfect for when you’re in a rush and have no time to match all pieces of an outfit. Easy + stylish, that’s definitely a win-win situation.

A post shared by Manu Luize | Fashion Blogger (@manuluize) on

Milan is preparing to welcome the 4th edition of the Lierac Beauty Run this Saturday 8th June. This is a special run, not just because it was the first one I’ve took part, but because it’s dedicated to women and their relatives and the running will take place at 9pm at the Arena Civica here in Milan, such a beautiful location! The event is organized by RCS Sports & Events – RCS Active Team with LIERAC, a cosmetic brand distributed exclusively in pharmacies and parapharmacy, always close to the female universe.

 

As last year, you can choose one of the two options for the run:

1) of 5 km for non-competitive cross the Parco Sempione

2) of 10 km for the competitive and non-competitive that will wind between the Brera area, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza Duomo, Cordusio, Cairoli with the Castello Sforzesco with the start and finish line always positioned at the Arena Civica.

Lierac beauty run 2019

 

The preparation and fun start early on the day, from 3.30 pm a series of activities will start at the Beauty Village that will accompany the participants throughout the afternoon before the run.

This year’s theme is Ready Shine Go (nothing more feminine, right?), it’s the new mood chosen by the LIERAC to express the spirit that accompanies many women: light up to reveal the best side of themselves!

Moving on to the day’s program, a special space will be provided at the LIERAC stand where beauty tips will be offered for the skin as well as the Lierac Sun Point, the solar oasis that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of the sun in complete safety, thanks to the Sunissime line. Moreover, to celebrate the theme of this edition, Ready Shine Go, a special glittery photo corner created in collaboration with Design by Gemini, and a tattoo station where you can get gadgets to shine in the most pink summer evening.

In the PHYTO Hair – Bar instead it will be possible to book a “shining” pre-run hairstyle. A moment entirely dedicated to well-being that will allow runners to prepare for the running in style!

NEW BALANCE, technical sponsor of the Lierac Beauty Run for the second consecutive year, has designed the beautiful t-shirt fort his new edition, in a female and male version!

In the GARMIN space you can discover the new GPS watches for the forerunner 45 and forerunner 245 race. These new devices measure the distance traveled and record the heart rate during running workouts. VEEPEE, the well-known e-commerce site dedicated to beauty, will create a Summer Oasis in which you can take a souvenir photo and where you will be offered fresh fruit juices and popsicles. Furthermore, special tattoos and a free yoga session, all dedicated to enjoy and relax before the run starts. There will be refreshing herbal teas and glittered cotton candy offered by TESCOMA, in addition to a series of surprises offered to adults and children.

To warm up the muscles before departure, or just for a relaxing massage at the end of the race, there will be a space dedicated to relaxation and well-being at 360 ° by LLOYDS FARMACIA which will involve Ecolife professional physiotherapists. The creation of the Kids Area is planned, organized by KIKOLLE LAB, where children from 1 to 10 can enjoy games, animations and many other surprises.

From 3:30pm on the stage, there will be many initiatives to entertain runners and a special warm-up signed by the trainers of the Audacious Gym.

One of the things that I love about this run is that, like last year, participants will have the opportunity to support individual projects by donating 5 euros of the participation fee to one of the five partner associations, which are Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Dynamo Camp, DiversityLab, Fondazione Francesca Rava e Professional Women Network.

7 Ways to Style a Button Up Shirt

Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?

A shirt is such a basic and so classic piece that almost everyone has at least one in the wardrobe, and did you know that it can actually be worn in several different ways? You can even make it look like almost a new blouse!

So I filmed a video with 7 different ways on how to wear and style a button up shirt, showing the same piece worn in different ways, not only in different looks, but also showing you how to style, tie or twist it to create a new way of wearing a shirt. In the number 7, it almost looks like another piece!

Inlight Face Oil: Review

As someone who has oily skin, there was a time I was kind of afraid even to think of using a skincare product that was oil-based, until I tried the first facial oil 2 years ago and I loved the texture! It is not because the product is an oil texture one that it will leave your skin oily, in fact even if you have oily skin, you can use oil-based products with no problem at all and they can be great for your skin.

So today I’m doing a full review of the InLight Face Oil, a product and brand that I’ve met at the Cosmoprof last year and that I was testing for a couple of months, using it daily during my morning and night routine.

Inlight Face Oil: Review

 

• InLight Face Oil: Review

I’d like to just mention that InLight Beauty is an organic cosmetic brand, and that this Face Oil is 100% organic, meaning that all ingredients present in this product are 100% natural and organic. And I’ve been really enjoying getting to know more natural and organic brands, because I love skincare products and since they are super present in my daily routine, it’s always better to pay attention to what ingredients and chemicals I’m applying to my skin.

So back to the InLight Face Oil: it’s a protective elixir for daily moisturising and it’s recommended for all skin types, including sensitive and/or damaged skin by sun and ageing.

The brand introduces this face oil with the following benefits:

– To help to balance production of skin sebum
– For long lasting moisturising feel
– To create a protective barrier and base for makeup
– To leave your skin feeling velvety soft

After using it for a couple of months, I really feel that my skin feels moisturised and smooth, this oil is not heavy and it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I applied it every day morning and night and my skin was never feeling oily because of the product.

I also liked it as a base for my makeup, the foundation apply very easily after this oil.

 

InLight Face Oil Texture

This face oil has a really light texture and it’s easily absorbed by the skin, it doesn’t make your skin look or feel oily and since it’s easily absorbed, it also don’t make your skin feel sticky or anything like it. It’s color is yellow, but it goes clear and transparent when you apply it into your skin.

You just need a few drops to apply this oil to your face and neck, by the way, never forget to apply your skincare in you neck as well! The packaging recommends from 2 to 5 drops for face and neck and that’s really it, you just need a small quantity of product.

You can apply it and after go with any other product that you feel the need to apply, or you can apply your daily sunscreen if it’s in the morning.

I usually apply oily products after I wash my face and apply an eye cream, so the third product will be the skincare oil-based product I’m using at the moment. In the night I do the same thing and sometimes I apply a face exfoliator before applying this oil.

I’ve been really enjoying using oil-based products and I really liked this Face Oil from InLight, for being light textured and actually making my skin smooth and moisturised after every application. Since I tried it for a good couple of months, I can also say that it didn’t leave my skin oilier even when I was applying it on a continuous basis, even on a long period of time.

Compelling Reasons Why Wellness Retreats are Good for Your Skin

Most people make the same mistake by indulging in a holiday that does nothing but make them even more tired. Instead, they should focus on their health and well-being.

Wellness Retreats

The best thing to do is go to a health or wellness retreat that will give your body the necessary relaxation and so much more. It’s an excellent way to give your body that extra boost of energy that will provide enough of a push to feel relief from everyday stress.

Wellness retreats are also excellent to take care of those long-neglected well-being goals. These health retreats keep you active through having fun in a stress-free environment that will reenergize you. Most of them are placed in beautiful surroundings, which can be quite soothing.

Natural wonders, biking trails, and natural thermal springs are just some of the interesting and exciting things you can enjoy.

Enhance your well-being with a wide range of healing and wellness activities. With all that in mind, here are some compelling reasons why wellness retreats are good for your health and skin.

 

• Stress-free environment

Spa & relax

Wellness retreats are mostly located in extremely beautiful surroundings, which is excellent for all those who need to de-stress. These health retreats are good for numerous things, as they provide a stress-free environment that helps beat insomnia, de-stress, eat healthily and get fit, among many other things.

Then, there’s also the benefit for your skin. In natural surroundings, you get a chance to escape all the daily stresses.

In fact, if it’s de-stressing that you need, wellness retreats offer the most excellent destressing methods such as spa treatments, detoxing, and meditation. Take a healing holiday and feel healthy, energized, and refreshed.

 

• Specifically designed wellness events

Premier Dead Sea Mud Mask

Not every wellness retreat is the same. Different retreats offer different events which are intended to provide relaxation and refreshment in exquisite surroundings.

These feel-good treatments offer an excellent way to take care of not only your health and mind but your skin as well. Tanning is fine, but it isn’t so great for your skin, especially if you overdo it.

You can pick specifically designed wellness events that will provide special treatment for your skin. For example, if you’re having trouble with fine lines and wrinkles and you want to do something good for your skin, a facial treatment with the Premier Dead Sea mud mask seems like an excellent way to take care of those dehydrated areas in the skin, as well as prevent the appearance of fine lines.

Picking a wellness event with such treatments will leave your skin beautiful and smooth, as the minerals found in the Dead Sea mud can do wonders for your skin.

• Not all wellness retreat focus on the same thing

There’s a wellness retreat for any taste. In fact, most of these retreats tailor their events and treatments to better suit the needs of their customers.

Whether you’re just looking for a healthy getaway, to lose weight, take care of your digestive problems, solution for your skin condition or just some stress relief, health retreats are the best way to take care of your health and reconnect with nature.

Most people use these retreats to take care of their health problems, as sometimes natural and traditional ways give the best results. People who suffer from any skin condition and are fed up with chemical treatments often turn to natural means.

Well, a wellness retreat that offers an excellent skin treatment with the Dead Sea Minerals might just be what you need to reap some important benefits such as:

  • Removal of the dead skin cells
  • Anti-wrinkle treatment
  • Skin perfecting
  • Age-defying daily skin care routine

If you want to read more about the benefits the Dead Sea minerals provide for those with damaged skin, all the information you need can be found here.

 

• Avoiding bad habits induced by routines

Everybody needs a change from their daily routine, as people are used to bad habits induced by those routines. They easily get absorbed into that bad routine that makes them neglect relaxation and they fail to take some time off to take care of their health.

The truth is, wellness retreats provide life-enhancing experiences. They allow you to break your habits and routine, disconnect from daily stress and just let go of all the pressures you’re used to on a daily basis. This makes you stronger, healthier, happier, and more positive.

 

• A time to focus on you

Wellness center

Most people forget how important it is to focus on themselves and their health. Modern life offers so many distractions but a wellness retreat helps you disconnect and take some time to take care of yourself.

With proper fitness and health professionals at your side, spending some time in a wellness center helps your sleep, skin health, stress relief, anti-aging, detox, weight-loss, and so much more. If you’re interested in giving it a try, pay a visit to Zing Events wellness retreats for the best experience.

Not just a mere detail, the bed is one of the main points in a bedroom and not just a decoration item of a room, since it needs to be comfortable and have its style, so it is often the center of the room’s decor. A lovely and comfortable bed is a must have for your room, after all, you will spend your nights there.

After the bed, the decor of the bedroom requires some thinking of what you need as furniture and the space you will need in your room. Do you need a place to work or study?

Another very important information to adhere to a red hair color is to remember, as in any other hair coloring, your hair will need a lot of care and you’ll need to treat your hair well before, during the process and after the coloring process, to keep your hair healthy and always beautiful.

I classified the pictures of red hair ideas between shades of lighter, brighter and darker hair colors, so you can choose the red hair color that you like best and pick your favourite color for your new hair change.

 

• Red hair color: light shades

Among the shades of light red hair color is the famous “strawberry blonde”, a light reddish-blonde hair color that has been very successful among several celebrities and is a hair color that creates a mixture between a redhead and very delicate blonde hair color.

Options for red hair color in lighter shades are very delicate and they are also the choice of many celebrities who had their hair dyed red or even were born with natural red hair color:

Another trend among red hair colors and shades is the so-called nude red hair, a redhead tone that is actually created with a certain basis in the person’s natural hair, creating a perfect shade for each skin tone, that’s why it can vary from person to person as it is created according to the natural color of your hair.

5VIE for the Milano Design Week 2019

One of the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milan is a city full of events and one of the important one for who loves or works with architecture and design is the Salone del Mobile and the Milano Design Week in Milan (also known as Fuorisalone), that will be taking place this April, between 09/04 and 14/04.

For the 2019 Milano Design Week, the 5VIE, an integrated design district here in Milan is preparing a lot of interesting exhibitions and events. I’ve been present on the press conference a couple of days ago and here are the main attractions of the 5VIE for this Milan Design Week.

The 2019 edition of 5VIE is bringing art+design and it embraces experimentation more openly than ever to cultivate an even more international presence. This year’s goal is to consolidate their reputation as a cultural reference point, bringing together plurality of thought and international heterogeneity.

 

Cristina Tajani, Councillor for Labor, Manufacturing, Fashion and Design Policy, explains that “the presentations and installations proposed by 5VIE help implement the Administration’s mission to spread the vitality and creativity of Design Week to every part of the city. We believe that the Fuorisalone represents not only a great opportunity for operators in the design sphere to get together and compare notes, but for the city to offer the possibility of approaching beauty and craftsmanship through the new creative languages of design, which are often contiguous with the long artisanal traditions specific to the various quarters of Milan. An opportunity to explore the world of design, which draws strength from the collaborative efforts of the Municipality of Milan and the operators in the various districts, united by the desire to promote the city under the banner of creativity and innovation.”.

Every year, 5VIE dedicates the Milano Design Week to a great master and for 2019 their guest of honor  will be Ugo La Pietra, an artist who established his reputation back in the late ‘50s and whose production has since explored an incredible variety of creative techniques. His exhibition is entitled Design Territoriale, Genius Loci.

 

• List of Events and Exhibitions of the 5VIE Milano Design Week 2019:

Here’s a list of exhibitions, attractions and events that will take part on the 5VIE district during the Milano Design Week 2019 edition. The list is divided according to where it will be taking place:

 

  • SANT’AMBROGIO e dintorni

– CARLO MASSOUD – THE FISH AND THE CROWD (curated by Maria Cristina Didero
)
Address: Oratorio della Passione, Piazza Sant’Ambrogio

The Fish and the Crowd is the first solo exhibition by the young Lebanese designer in Italy, and brings together a number of objects created since the designer started his studio in Beirut in 2013 until today, combined with a new production realized for the occasion.

Carlo Massoud is interested in translating the world surrounding him into every day and lively objects. For the 2019 edition of the Milan Design Week 2019, Carlo Massoud has reimagined the space of the Oratorio della Passione through a new collaboration with his sister Mary-Lynn with whom he has created a collaborative brand new project. In the space of this jewel church a number of objects play the role of an imaginary crowd, seated on benches. For The Fish and the Crowd Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud quote the classical icons of Christianity and its liturgies (the religion they also belong to) to involve the viewers in an intense and ironical reflection suspended between the physicality of the objects and the spiritual tension of the context.

 

–  ANTON ALVAREZ – L’ULTIMA CERA (curated by Nicolas Bellavance- Lecompte)
Address: Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Monache, via Lanzone 13

The work of artist and designer Anton Alvarez is futuristic and primitive at the same time. With the exhibition L’Ultima Cera, Anton explores an ancient material in a new and innovative way: bronze. Commissioned by curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte and produced by 5VIE in collaboration with the Fonderia Artistica Battaglia in Milan as part of their new program of commissions and residencies, Alvarez adapts his machine, called ‘Extruder’, to work with wax. The extruder is a large metal cylinder hung from the ceiling by chains, using an electric motor to exert more than 2,000 kilos of pressure on the wax, pushing it through different moulds and cut-outs into a pool of cold water, where the artist uses his hands to give the wax its final form. When the wax is set, all the pieces are cast in bronze, each one-of-a- kind. Alvarez produces twelve pieces, this being the first time that an artist has approached bronze with such a technique.

 

– FORO STUDIO – RUG-O-RAMA 

Address: International English Centre, Via Medici, 15

Foro Studio Alessandro Iovine Rugorama
FORO Studio + Alessandro Iovine present Rug-o-rama, a series of carpets in different materials intended as an homage to the city of Milan. With the ardor of a lover, the designers seek to capture the many identities of the metropolis, making its beauty their own, filtering it through the attentive eye of those whose work is dedicated to bringing the tangible closer to the intangible. The challenge is to transmit the power of a place to a furnishing element – a carpet in this case – where the physicality of the materials encounters the ephemeral nature of emotion and memory. The final product is therefore rooted in the territory, but at the same time free to tell multiple stories in multiple places. The concept involves the use of recycled materials from local industries and artisans in the furniture sector, with the aim of giving them new life, transforming them into unique objects. The carpets are hand-woven on a reticular support that ensures structural integrity. The exhibition will guide the viewer along a visionary and varied path in search of the right perspective from which to admire the many facets of Milan.

 

– DAVIDE GROPPI – SPAZIO ESPERIENZE

Address: Via Medici, 13
Light to see and feel people and space.
Light like a vision, but also like a feeling.
Light expressing mystery, deep reflection and seduction.

 

– LIZARD – ANA POPESCU

Address: Via Circo, 1
Lizard for Design Week 2019 presents a small selection of Ana Popescu’s acrylic paintings. Born in Romania, grew up in France and now lives in Vienna. Her work is a constant experiment trying to combine formal elements such as shape and color. She is mainly inspired by architecture – Bauhaus and socialist modernism. Each one of her projects tries to render simple scenes in something more complex.
