Palms are exotic plants, always green, which give a luxurious appeal to the ambient. They will be the focal point in our color scheme today.
The luxurious atmosphere of a green paradise can be achieved in different ways and styles, and today I invite you to see together three distinctive variants to achieve it:
1/ in NEUTRAL TONES of whites – one will have a minimalistic vibe in Scandinavian style, with white walls, light flooring, and some accents in warm terracotta and green colors; another will have a more contemporary style with walls always white, covered with boiserie, and an intense presence of green and granite.
2/ in WARM TONES of green, honey accents and reddish woods, like cherry and palissander.
3/ in COLD TONES of blue, withstood by shades of grey and dark woods, like oak tint wengé and black ebony, intensified by accents of bright yellow and intense deep reds.
Practical shape, elegant design, timeless - it is all about the SHIRT DRESS!
Today we can find many variations of this dress, but they all have two unchanged elements: the “shirt” type collar and the buttons that go all the way down to the bottom.
The SAFETY PIN DRESS is one of the legendary creations by Gianni Versace gaining the status of a sex symbol. It ensured a meaningful place in fashion history. This dress evoked a huge international interest, it was discussed in all fashion magazines, journals, and on television.
It was proclaimed as “the sexiest black dress ever created” not only for its unique design, but also because it was so unexpected, it shifted the fashion world view: you can love it, or you can hate it, but you can never forget it! Here is a small history of this dress.
Gianni Versace was the legendary genius who managed to transform the LBD into a SEX SYMBOL! He incorporated the talent of an artist with the skills of a tailor. As a result, his creations became art pieces with a strong personality, some being at the edge of ostentatiousness. Nevertheless, his dresses were made to openly underline the beautiful shapes of a woman’s figure. The black bondage dress in the sado-maso style presented for the Fall Collection of 1992 has definitively consolidated its reputation as a sexy fashion designer.
In 1966, Yves Saint Laurent dressed models in a black tuxedo with a sheer blouse to walk the runway of Haute Couture in Paris. It was the year he introduced LE SMOKING. Society broke out in scandal! In the end, this garment became “the look” of the House and the Nr. 1 most beloved item of the Designer.
Christian Dior is probably one of the most famous fashion French designers in the world! His name is bounded with fashion since the early fifties from the last century. Impeccable, beautifully structured silhouettes he created, inspired many designers in the years to follow. He dressed a woman as a rosebud ready to blossom, releasing elegance and femininity from head to toes. This figure accompanied and inspired the designer through his entire life career.
Coco Chanel said: “Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress.”
A DRESS – is that garment that makes a woman look beautiful, stylish, and sexy, feminine, exquisite, and elegant, fashionable, trendy, and practical. All of it at once!
The DRESS was created to embrace and highlight a woman’s natural shape, stand out her tenderness and softness, underline her accomplishments and hide imperfections, excite a male imagination, and inspire artists.
