Who is afraid of Virginia Wolf by Edward Albee

Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 23.14.04
A great play by Edward Albee that is unmissable and immortalised as well by Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton on the silver screen. It gives us a sneak peak into one night of a middle aged couple whose marriage is not going well by all means. The alcohol on this particular night does not help either it just inflames the issues at hand. A young couple is invited to their home and I am sure they regretted it the day after and not only because of the hangover.

Quotes: Martha: I swear, if you existed, I’d divorce you.

Nick: Who did the painting?
George: Some Greek with a moustache that Martha attacked one night.

George: You can sit around with the gin running out of your mouth; you can humiliate me; you can tear me to pieces all night, that’s perfectly okay, that’s all right.
Martha: You can stand it!
George: I cannot stand it!
Martha: You can stand it, you married me for it!

George: Martha, in my mind you’re buried in cement right up to the neck. No, up to the nose, it’s much quieter.

Martha: Well, you’re going bald.
George: So are you.

To this day one of my favourite reads….the story each and everyone of us had- the story of our first love. It starts by a couple of middle aged guests at a party remembering their first loves and when it is the protagonist’s Vladimir Petrovich time to tell his he promises to tell it by writing it down. It is a sad story as his love was never returned- even though he believed that the feeling was mutual. A quick read and another wonderful work of a Russian master.

He perhaps was lucky not to survive and see the degradation of Belgrade due to the years of war and the negative aftermath this created culturally. He studied a couple of semesters at Beaux Arts in Paris in the class of Vladimir Velickovic . Jean Marc Barr made a film “Lovers” about his life in Paris starring  Elodie Bouchez and Sergej Trifunovic. He aslso lived and worked in New York where he exhibited his work.

On being a female dandy….Lou Salome

Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 13.35.27

Certain women use their intelligence for their flirtation. Upon meeting her Friedrich Nietzsche said: “From which stars did we fall to meet each other here?”. Liliana Cavani’s film Beyond Good and Evil (1977) was inspired by their relationship and is a must Russian-German novelist, essayist, psychoanalyst, and a muse, colleague, and companion for such authors and thinkers as Nietzsche, Rilke, and Freud. Lou Andreas-Salomé wrote widely on literature criticism, philosophy and psychoanalysis. With her indifference to moral conventions and insatiable intellectual curiosity, Andreas-Salomé challenged the gender roles of her day. She was one of the first female psychoanalysts to write on female sexuality, in fact she wrote her book Die Erotik  before she met Freud with whom she developed a close relationship. Freud said of her that she was “a woman of dangerous intelligence” but that “all the tracks around her go into the Lion’s den but none come out.”

Interview- Marco Sette, Vesti l’Arte

Leave a comment

During the Venice Film Festival I stumbled upon these wonderful scarves. They have beautiful designs on them and are also very soft on the skin. I wore mine immediately in the plane when I embarked on my trip back to Paris. I wanted to find out more about this brand and asked Massimo Dirollo a couple of questions!

How did you get the idea to start producing your scarves?

Fashion has always looked up to art as a source of inspiration, as a sort of Museum ante litteram, a “Wunderkammer” from which it derives its ideas. This relationship has evolved in the early twentieth century, going from a one-way to bi-directional relationship, certifying a process of hybridization between the two fields: patterns, colors and shapes were first used as a symbol of protest and rebellion. They have now become “intent to stimulate elegance “, expressions of technological know-how and of tireless pursuit. We have always believed that on these assumptions, creativity and uniqueness, the liason between Fashion and Art is formed. Vesti l’Arte is its synthesis: Fabric that hovers and does not weigh, colors that flow like the bed of a river. This is how the body regains its outfit and its measuring.
Where is it made?The entire process is strictly and entirely Made in Italy. Even the printing in high definition is obtained by means of sophisticated equipment of the latest generation. We use high-tech innovation processes: the final outcome, we could say, is a work of art.

Have you always worked in fashion or this is your first venture?Vesti l’Arte was founded in 2013 in Rome, thanks to the initiative of 4 people from different sectors: fashion, entertainment, jewelry and production. In this sense, based on previous experiences, we’re not new to the fashion world.Specifically, the production process is based on the excellence and experience that Arcieri – the company of two of the founders of Vesti l’Arte – has developed over the last decade.
Who are your favourite painters?Without a doubt the impressionist painters but also the “Macchiaoli,” not only because it denied the importance of placing the object on the same level as all genres (historical, religious and secular), but also for the Impressionist color theory, which suggested approach points in minutes without the mixing of colors, so as to obtain smooth surfaces to “live” and always in movement.
With Vesti l’Arte our eye becomes the painter and our body the frame. Why then have we started with “Modernist” KLIMT? This remains and will remain our little secret.



What are your next projects? Produce “limited editions” with 100% cashmere yarn: we speak of scarves, stoles that weigh not more than 40 grams: giving you the feeling of holding small clouds in the palm of your hands! A very ambitious project for the delicacy of the tissue and the high capacity of absorption of color in the printing process. The first samples have also left us speechless: stunning! We will be the first to achieve such a thing. We will use a revolutionary and unique printing process very complex and expensive, but that will not dye the fabric … you’ll find out soon! In addition, we will implement our Jewelry line and finally, we are studying the “Puntillisti” that led to the highest expression of the concept described above: the colors do not exist alone, but only when combined with others. We expect a lot of work, but it’s definitely inspiring!
Favourite city in the world?I do not want to seem parochial, but we live in a city defined by others as “eternal” and so are obligated to say Rome: its roofs, its views, its immaculate scenery, its history, september evenings, the westerly winds, and we could go on and on.
Favourite restaurant in Italy?We have no option but to choose LARTE in Milan!
In fact it is not only a restaurant but also a gallery, an exhibition space, emotional, hosting and welcoming, like a house, like a work of art … And then it is also very close to La Scala in Milan, in front of the “Gallerie d’Italia” and few meters away from the “Museo Poldi Pezzoli” and “Casa Manzoni”: in short, is the perfect place for us, perfect for Vesti l’Arte.
Favourite film? Concise and straight to the point: “Roman Holiday”, “The Devil’s Advocate,” “Babette’s Feast,” “Edward Scissorhands” and finally, it goes without saying, “The Great Beauty”.
WHere can we buy your scarves in Italy ? Worldwide? We started with the distribution only in March and, for the moment, only in Italy. Currently our creations can be found in Rome: “Red & Blue” (Piazza di Spagna) – “Cenci” (Pantheon) – “Zita Fabiani” (Monte Sacro) – “Boy Jewels” (EUR) – “Stuff d ‘Gold “(Flaminio), etc..
In Milan: at the showroom of “Fiorella Ciaboco’s stylist” (C.so Como 9)
In Como: “Doris Vinci”;
In Sardinia from “Mario Vassallo” (Olbia-Tempio)
And of course, you can also purchase products on our website: www.vestilarte.com
Who would you like to see wearing your scarves?Without a doubt, Johnny Depp, an actor magnificently extravagant, eccentric, nonconformist, one who looks at the world with imagination. In the words of Tim Burton, “JD communicates even when he is not speaking, you do not know what he’s thinking but from the eyes, you understand everything”. We could say the same about Vesti l’Arte.
We also love Jennifer Lawrence because of her honesty, she has character, she’s sexy, charming, vibrant, thrilling, in other words, the screen lights up with her on it.



What is your life philosophy? Good is not good if it is not for everyone and of everyone.
Next to the economic good we place importance to the good of mankind because we believe that the former is useless without the latter. We want to combine old and new, tradition and innovation to get to that integral quality that is the result of the inner quality of everyone. We think that style is the dress of thought and elegance, the beauty of the soul that spreads like a mysterious light, giving beauty to the body. Let’s look with the heart, convinced that the essential is invisible to the eye. For this reason, our creations are combined with those who appreciate the value of a product that blends style with the elegance of tradition.
We believe in a sort of “entrepreneurship ethic” work pursuing a common goal that lays on top of everything on a scale of non-material values in which we are recognized as part of the entire company. Because for us, the relationships, both internally and externally, are based on core values, knowing that only the confidence, esteem and mutual respect can be the basis of a good dialogue between people. We are a united group, where everyone has the awareness of having a role to play for the good of all.

Interview- Tiffany Theler owner of La Reserva Rotana, Majorca, Spain

Leave a comment

I was recently invited to my friend’s beautiful hotel in Majorca and had to share with you the incredible style and comfort of this place. Also – would love to introduce you to Tiffany Theler, the glamorous owner who with her family have been running the estate since the 1970′s.

Who came upon the idea to find this beautiful spot and develop it?
The estate was bought by my parents in the 70´s and then turned into a hotel when the kids went off to boarding school in the early 90´s.


Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where did you study and what are your origins?
I was born in Switzerland but grew up here in Rotana, Mallorca. I did my first years of school in the local village and was later I was sent to boarding school in Switzerland, where I meet you. After that came a university in Madrid which lead me to work in photography and fashion for a couple of years until I ended back here to run the estate.



Your home is here, there is a beautiful hotel spa and golf course and also there are properties that are up for sale?

Yes, the property has several plots of about 19.000m2 that we have built beautiful Villas on, of approximately 500m2. We have a construction company as well and have done every bit with love and making sure the Mallorquin tradition is kept. These Villas are serviced from the Hotel and its owners can take advantage of all the installations, such as a private Golf course, tenis, a gym etc…

Who was responsible for the decoration of the properties?


The decoration has been done entirely by my mother, who together with my father have over the years accumulated lots of antique furniture.

I know you are very fashionable- you seem to pull looks together without too much effort. What is style for you?
My style depends very much on my moods and my location. Style for me is looking great without having to make too much of an effort and without looking like you’re uncomfortable in your own skin. A pair of ripped jeans and a T-shirt sometimes looks way better than something pompous and stiff.

Favourite designers, brands?
Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta
This 2014 Valentino Pret a Porter collection is lovely but as I am a country girl I wear a lot of easy street collections and Zara things.
My everyday outfits tend to be jeans and dresses, specially when I am in Mallorca. For big events I love stealing my mothers vintage pieces. Luckily we have the same size.

You divide your time between Ibiza, Majorca and ST Moritz- tell me more about how you manage this?

Well Mallorca for me is work, in Ibiza we have always had our summer house and St.Moritz is a bit the center where all the family meets at Christmas. I love skiing more than anything and spend a lot of time there.
It doesn’t need much management as all these locations fit into the different seasons automatically.

Perfect outfit for Majorca?
If I am at work at the hotel I wear jeans, a shirt and sandals. A leisure outfit is usually a short dress again with flat sandals. For the winter its all about boots and cashmere.

Perfect outfit for Ibiza?
Ibiza on the other hand requires a bit more show, depending on the event it can be psychedelic catsuit or a white hippy dress

Perfect outfit for St Moritz?
I have gotten a bit tired of the overdressed crowds in St.Moritz so i like to wear something easy but cool. Leather trousers and a cool blazer.


Favourite restaurant in Majorca?

I would have to say that my favourite restaurant is my own, Sa Rotana.

Favourite city in the world?

I love London, but there are still so many cities I have not explored that I cant say I have a favourite.

Who inspires you?

My father inspired me all my life, and now I miss him terribly.

Iconic woman?
I love Frida Kahlo, strong, independent with a filterless mouth

“Success is getting what you want, happiness is wanting what you get”
“Getting old is like climbing a mountain- you get a little out if breath but the view is much better”
“Happiness is good health and bad memory”
“I won’t do this movie because I don’t believe the love story,” she told Selznick. “The heroine is an intellectual woman, and an intellectual woman simply can’t fall in love so deeply.”
“I said, “I don’t think I can give you that kind of emotion.” And he [Hitchcock] sat there and said, “Ingrid, fake it!” Well, that was the best advice I’ve had in my whole life, because in all the years to come there were many directors who gave me what I thought were quite impossible instructions and many difficult things to do, and just when I was on the verge of starting to argue with them, I heard his voice coming to me through the air saying, “Ingrid, fake it!” It saved a lot of unpleasant situations and waste of time.”
“I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up!”
