Style Lesson #5 - How to: foulard

The foulard has travelled through time, and has a firm, stable place in fashion, season after season. Its origins are far away from today: there are Asian images with people wearing foulards and scarves dated a thousand years b.C. Then peasants has always worn them on their heads as a protection from sun and wind. 
Here are 3 ways of wearing it:

  1. Twist it around the neck and knot it on the side in order not to cover the face. Perfect for the cold season.
  2. Lay the middle part of the scarf on the front of your neck and let the two sides fall freely on the shoulders and the back. Very chic and right for a strapless gown.
  3. Tie a knot on each end of the scarf and then wear it simply letting it fall on the frontside. 

Il foulard è un classico che, stagione dopo stagione, mantiene un posto stabile nella moda. Le sue origini sono molto lontane nel tempo: ve ne sono tracce in alcune immagini ritrovate in Asia e risalenti a un migliaio di anni avanti Cristo. Poi, è da sempre usato anche dalle contadine per ripararsi da vento e pioggia.

Focus on: Diptyque Paris

We are glad to announce you a new exclusive arrival on our e-shop: Diptyque personal and home fragrances.
But, first, let's focus on the history of this brand. The story began in 1961, when three artists and designers joined their creativity opening a shop at 34 bouevard St Germain, Paris, to show and sell their fabrics and the items they collected from travelling around the world.
Soon they started selling scented candles to pair with the fabrics, and the following step was to launch a line of successful fragrances, personal and for home, in the signature package with the black and white minimal label. Now the three perfume artisans are worldwide known and you have the chance to buy their creations online on EleonoraBonucci.
The range features sophisticated scented candles and home frangrances, personal frangrances including the iconic 34 Eau Particuliere, and a selection of Fragranced Body Care products (like body cream, moisturising gel, soap and body scrub).
Discover them all!
Siamo lieti di presentarvi un nuovo ed esclusivo arrivo nel nostro e-shop: le fragranze per il corpo e per la casa Diptyque Paris.
Ma, prima, parliamo un po' della storia di questo brand. Tutto inizia nel 1961 quando 3 artisti uniscono la loro creatività aprendo uno store al numero 24 di Boulevard St Germain, Parigi, per mostrare e vendere i loro tessuti e gli oggetti particolari raccolti in giro per il Mondo.

Style Lesson #3 - How to: rolled-up cuffs

Rolled-up cuffs remind us of iconic pictures with legendary characters like Marlon Brando, Elvis and James Dean, just to mention a few, and take us straight back to the 60s.
Well, now they are on trend again, so let's see how to wear them.

  1. Below the elbow: more stylish than practical. It's good when you're deliberately trying to look relaxed.
  2. Above the elbow: really practical when you're working with your hands, but not as stylish as leaving the rolled sleeves slightly below the elbow.
  3. Our tip: when rolling your sleeve above the elbow, keep the cuff outside and fold it in the end in order to keep your rolls tidy.

I risvolti alle maniche delle camicie ci ricordano foto iconiche di Marlon Brando, Elvis, James Dean, solo per nominarne alcuni e ci riportano direttamente indietro agli anni '60.
Bene, adesso sono tornati in voga, dunque ecco come indossarli:
