Over the rainbow...

Me confieso como una de esas personas que a veces hablan sin parar, o que de repente dicen algo que aparentemente no tiene absolutamente nada que ver con el tema de conversación anterior, lo cuál hace que en muchas ocasiones me vea obligada a verbalizar mi secuencia de pensamiento.

El caso es que os cuento esto, (que a la mayoría seguramente os de igual), porque el otro día, y a raíz de un "pequeño proyecto/trabajo", alguien me hizo pensar en las famosas que me gustaría que llevasen mi "marca", y sin duda, creo que Kate Bosworth sería una de ellas. No es en absoluto por algo racional, simplemente me encanta la mezcla entre inocencia y rebeldía, entre pastel y cierto toque punk, que sin duda esta editorial encarna a la perfección. Además de que, indudablemente, me provoca ganas de hacer locuras con mi pelo, (pero tranquilos, todavía no he alcanzado ese grado de valentía).

I have to confess myself as one of those girls who talks non stop, or of those who suddenly spills out something that appears to have zero relation with the conversation my sorroundings were having two seconds ago... It's this creepy way of being, the one that makes me feel most of the time as if i had to explain my thinking process, which is kind of what i pretend to do now.

Anyway, i tell you all this, (which most certainly no-one cares about), because due to a small "piece of work", someone made me think about the kind of celebrity i would like to see wearing my "brand", and that's how Kate Bosworth came to my mind. I'm afraid there's no logical explanation about my choise, but she just feels the perfect combination between innocence and rebel spirit, and you all know i love pastel and punk... so this editorial is just perfect.

I also totally feel like dip dying my hair, although i haven't becomed so brave yet... let you know if i do!

The Loft

Supongo que el diseño me fascina en todos sus aspectos, y el de interiores, es uno de ellos. Todos nos imaginamos o lo hemos hecho alguna vez, como sería la casa de nuestros sueños, qué tendríamos, cómo lo distribuiríamos... La mía sin duda sería similar a esta, aunque llena de detalles propios... pero la pared de ladrillo es uno de los imprescindibles de mi casa ideal: la mezcla entre lo industrial y frío, y la calidez de la madera. Además, me encanta que todo respire una paz cromática, de colores suaves, con pequeños detalles contrastados de estilo modernista...
En fin, creo que ya estoy empezando a soñar demasiado. De este loft, todo lo que he conseguido averiguar es que está en España. Espero que lo disfrutéis.

I guess design fascinates me in each one of its variations, and interior design is for certain one of them. We all imagine or haved imagined sometime our dream house, the way we would decorate it, how we would distribute space... Mine no doubt could be similar to this one, although full of my own details... Anyway, the brick wall would be one of my indispensables: i love the mixture between the industrial cold and wooden warmth, another one would be monochrome colours, with little contrasted colours.
Anyway, i'm starting to dream far too much. All i could find out about this loft is that it's in Spain. I hope you enjoy it.

Ann He

Supongo que lo más sorprendente de esta "aspirante a fotógrafa" como ella misma se denomina, es su edad: tan solo 16 años, y aunque me gustaría afirmar que el arte no tiene edad, y sea cierto que muchos de los grandes artistas comenzaron a mostrar sus dotes muy jóvenes, es inevitable que piense que en parte sí está reñido con la madurez.
Me explico: en teoría, los años de vida que uno va acumulando, se traducen en aprendizaje y experiencia, y para crear es necesario vivir y absorber. Si este bagaje es más reducido, también suele serlo la visión o perspectiva.
Sin embargo, con Ann He, no es así, y eso me resulta todavía más admirable y digno de mención. La fotografía es para ella la forma de capturar tanto lo ordinario como lo extraordinario, y lo que sin duda queda claro de su obra, es en qué grupo se encuentra ella.

I guess the most surprising fact about this "aspirant to fashion photographer", as she defines herself, is her age: 16 years old, and although i would love to say art has no age, and even knowing many great artists started their careers when they were pretty young, i can't help thinking creation has something to do with age, with maturity and the knowledge we absorb throghout our life. It's pretty logical to think that if our life has been shorter, the cretivity we've absorbed has been less.
In this case, Ann He definetevely proofs me wrong. Photography is to her the way of capturing ordinary and extraordinary, and it's obvious the group she belongs to.
Hope you enjoy her work.

Precioso portfolio de Samantha Casolari. Una vez más, ha sido inevitable verme capturada por la gama de color, las texturas y la luz. Podría afirmar que la fotografía es una de mis "artes" preferidas (siempre como observadora), y seguramente se deba al hecho de cómo un fotógrafo logra expresar ese bucle de sensaciones en una misma imagen, reflejando un momento perecedero del tiempo.

Beautiful portfolio by Samantha Casolari. Once again the light and colours totally captured me. Photography is probably one of my favourite arts (as a watcher), and it's probably due to the fact of how artists like this New York based photographer, manage to express so much through images that capture non-lasting moments.

Samantha Casolari grew up in Italy but has lived in Paris, Milan, Geneva and Uganda. Having moved to Brooklyn in 2003 to pursue a Master’s degree in International Affairs at Columbia University, she's since been working as a full time photographer for the past four years, and shot for clients such as Nike, Uomo Vogue, Dossier Journal, Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, Pig Magazine, and many others. Her work has been exhibited in several galleries worldwide and was awarded with prizes such as PDN Photo Annual, Premio Celeste, Talent Prize Museo del Corso, International Photography Award, American Photography 24, International Reportage Award.

Diseñadora: Ana Diarte (DIARTE)
Modelo: Maria José Vilchez
Fotografía: Ignacio Benito

Hoy os quiero enseñar las fotografías de la nueva colección primavera verano 2012 de DIARTE, en la que estuve colaborando como parte de la dirección artística. La verdad es que las fotografías han quedado preciosas, pero es que la colección lo era. Ana, la diseñadora, tiene una filosofía de marca muy bonita, en la que cuida no solo los materiales (puntos y lanas totalmente naturales), sino también lo fabrica todo en España. Esto hace que la calidad aumente, y que las prendas sean mucho más manuales, delicadas y bonitas.

Espero que os gusten los resultados.

Today i want to share with you some of the pics of the new spring summer 2012 collection by DIARTE. We did the photoshoot i while ago (i collaborated in the artistic direction). I'm really pleased with the results, the garments look beatiful, and i love the light. Ana, the designer, has a beatiful brand philosophy: all materials of wool and cotton are natural, and all the pieces are made in Spain. Consequently, quality of garments increase, and the is a preocupation for the hand made details.

I hope you like the collection as much as i do.
