TOTEME ON MY MIND

TOTEME ON MY MIND

San Remo scarf / Sedona shirt / Santos jacket / Leon tights black monogram

One of the best brand around, the emblem of the Scandinavian simplicity. The one brand that easily helps you to stock the closet with daily basic, yet never boring pieces.

What would you choose to buy first? Hard decision.

WHEN IN ANTIBES

WHEN IN ANTIBES

Antibes-Juan les Pins is one of the most well known locality on the Cote d’Azur. Located between Nice and Cannes, the city manages to be a historic town but it’s also very innovating, having multiple facets to see and explore.

As I really enjoy spending my summer holidays in the south of France I though this not-so-little city, I’ve never been to before,  would be an amazing reality to explore. It was indeed. All the instagram posts about it and its beauty were right.

Cap d’Antibes can be really defined as a small piece of paradise. I suggest you take Le Sentier du Littoral, a path which follows the coastline and takes you into this immense park, scrupulously maintained. There also quite a few millionaires chateau and dream residences there. After the walk, I highly suggest you to relax and have a drink in one of the beach resorts that welcomes you after the walk.

You surely don’t have to miss a walk within the old town of Antibes, which looks like it hasn’t changed much for centuries.There’s a maze of narrow streets, overlooked by pastel-coloured buildings with colourful shutters. There are nice pavement cafés and restaurants mixed in with shops selling lots of artisan products.

Also don’t miss the Marché Provençal which can be found daily, where traders from around Provence bring fresh produce to sell – fruit and vegetables, cheeses, olives, spices and also natural soaps.

While searching for a studio, Pablo Picasso came across the Château Grimaldi. In 1946 he started to work there. Now it offer a selection of works he himself offered to the museum. There you can also see different art pieces by Nicolas de Staël, Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman.

Having dinner with feet deep in the sand is definitely always a nice experience. That’s what you can do in all the Juan Les Pins resorts. Juan Les Pins is one considered the most cheerful part of the city, with an exciting always-present nightlife where night owls can totally find plenty of pubs, restaurants and casinos.

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

It’s already mid July, and in less than a months there will finally be summer holidays. Two free weeks in which I do see myself doing some of my favorite things: sun-bathing, enjoying the seaside, reading books ( preferably thrillers ) and surely eating well. 

The plan is still not fully down but I will surely spend some time in Otranto, that’s in the south of Italy. A magic place in which I always go back to. It has an amazingly green-blu colored sea, amazing food and the people are so nice as well. 

Tell me your plans!

LUSIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

LUSIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Located 40 kms north of Copenhagen (just about 45 minutes by train) in the city of Humlebaek, the Luisiana Museum of Modern Art is set in an amazing location that looks directly at the Øresund, the stretch of water that separates Denmark from Sweden. It’s a very peaceful place where everything’s connected: the buildings to the landscape and to the hundreds of art pieces.

Founded by Knud Jensen in 1958 owes it’s name, Louisiana, to the original owner Alexander Brun’s three wives. They were all called Louise. Don’t you think that’s a funny coincidence?

As I was making researches for what to visit while being in the danish capital, one of the things that everyone kept recommending was this place. I spent a whole afternoon there and I can say that it’s definitely one of those places that should be top of your list when you visit Copenhagen.

Louisiana has an extensive permanent collections that include the Giacometti Gallery, Asger Jorn’s work, Warhol pieces and the amazing installation Gleaming Lights of the Souls by Yayoi Kusama. This last installation is really an amazing experience that makes you get into an amazing world made of lights and shadows.

Until the 27th of May you can also admire an extensive collection made of160 pieces from Picasso’s original ceramics that represents a late, fortunate and highly imaginative part of his work. I was also lucky to see the The way I think collection by Georg Condo. An amazing mix of input from artists such as Velazquez, Manet and Picasso, together with elements of American Pop Art.

A must-see that you cannot miss!

A place I will gladly come back to, maybe in the summer time, to enjoy its amazing gardens even more.
