Autumn leaves. Leaf-Life collection grows

October 10, 2018


{Click here to read the ITALIAN VERSION of this post}


Today come with me, I’ll bring you for a picnic on a carpet of colorful leaves. We’ll spread a blanket on the ground and we’ll wrap ourselves inside our big scarves, savouring roast chestnut, walnut muffins and chocolate cake.  We’ll drink from our flasks some hot Earl Grey tea and ginger and lemon infusion. Later, before the night falls, we’ll enjoy a walk on the riverside, until the air will be too cold: then we’ll run into the cottage to get warmed up in front of the wood stove, reading a book and cooking risotto… ♥️



 Walk in the wood, Valtellina, Italy 

September 2018


Last September, me and my Lorenzo finally indulged ourselves with a total relax week in the nature, among the italian Alpi Orobie Valtellinesi. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some shots from those enchanted places.


We arrived a Tuesday evening at sunset, the mountains and the meadows and the stone buildings tinted in pink. Silence was a din of cicadas. Still, it was quiet. That is a happy place 💗


Those amazing and quiet days walking in the woods, eating good italian food and relaxing, gave us a lot of much needed energy and inspirations, and I came back to London full of ideas and eagerness!


I poured all that inspiration in the new pieces of the Leaf-Life collection, in its Autumn version.

The “Leaf - Life” collection is dedicated to trees and leaves, and celebrates the vitality of Nature and the variety of colors and shapes with which it reveals itself on our Earth. For Autumn, Leaf-Life grows, welcoming new warm and embracing colors and new designs to wear.

I mainly chose gemstones such as garnet, carnelian and red jasper. Dark orange and dark red: the tones of the earth, of the fireplace’s embers, of the fallen leaves, of a hot tea cup, of the resin and amber. Shades celebrating Autumn and its scents, shades that live their glorious moment in this period, but that I love to wear even in Winter, to warm up the cold and dark days, and in Spring and Summer, because they remind me of the honey made by the bees in these months and of the hot sunsets on the sea horizon.

And last but not least, I couldn’t forget about the moss’ and undergrowth’s green, with my beloved aventurine gemstone :)
