Since it's all about gifts and the magic of holidays this month, I thought I should get into the spirit of Christmas and show you beautiful handmade objects that can easily become delightful presents. My favorites are Olefir Zoya's enchanting floral compositions in gypsum.

For the fall/winter 2013 season, Ling Lu and Dawei Sun designed a collection that addresses to young women who might be starting their first job. What caught my attention was the understated design they chose for their coats. Whether voluminous or simply following the body lines, the coats are tailored in an appealing minimalist manner that allows you to style them in various ways for an every-day look or for a night out. In addition to this, the two designers set as the main motif of their collection the hummingbird. Enjoy!

Tullamore Dew released a charming commercial that fell perfectly into place with the gloomy autumnal atmosphere of my city. Today, very early in the morning, I came across the video and somehow, the typically Irish landscape and the beautiful song playing in the background completed the picture of my morning. I invite you to see the 3 minute video below:

We all know Constantin Brâncuși as one of the most important sculptors of the 21st century who had a grand contribution in developing the aesthetics of modern sculpture, but today I want to approach his work differently and talk about Constantin Brâncuși, the designer. Who would've thought that the very talented Romanian artist had his contribution to the world of fashion too? In a small amount, it's true, but taking into consideration who we are talking about, I think it's worth mentioning it. So, what did artistic clothing looked like in the early 20s?

If I were ever to imagine an artist's house this is probably what it would look like: an amalgam of artistic objects, a mix of styles, clusters of intriguing objects everywhere, curious designs, piles of books, catalogs and magazines stuffed under eclectic pieces of furniture... a house that feels like a workshop or a workshop that feels like home.
Today I invite you on a beautiful quest to explore together the deliciously enchanting graphics of the Dior Resort 2014 scarves. Inspired by Christian Dior's heavenly gardens, the designs exude warmth and optimism. Elements such as delicate blooming roses, tiny insects, charming pastels, frail petals and singing birds pay homage to the beauty of nature of Granville, the place where Mr. Dior spent his childhood.
