Chicfinds is inspired by shades of green

In fashion on May 28, 2014 at 9:14 PM

Something about military green and the shades that co-exist with military green like camel, beige, black and white suggests confidence and style. The coming Fall/Winter 14 collections to be delivered into store soon are inspired by these beautiful rustic tones. Below is Isabel Marant’s take on Military.isabel-marant-autumn-fall-winter-2014-pfw13Whether it’s a military jacket over a white singlet or baggy military pants its an effortlessness that can be worn with a heel or boot and still command. It is a color that Italians love and worn by bronzed Italian women it is very exotic. Below is a look from the AW14 Max Mara collection about to hit stores. A Beautiful brand that captures the contemporary women with elegance and style. Known for its premium quality and Italian tailoring.

Chicfinds at design week Milano 2014

One of the best times to be in Milan is during Design week. Milan is a city that is beautiful behind closed doors but during Design Week it comes alive and there is so much going on you risk not being able to see all that is on offer. As http://www.yatzer.com said “From the sprawling RHO Fiera and its epic 24 halls of Salone Internazionale del Mobile, through to the design events spread far and wide across the entire city in every direction, it continues to be virtually impossible to do and see it all.”

paola-navone-merci-milanoI was reminded of this special week when I saw some photos recently of Paola Navone’s project in Via Tortona in collaboration with Richard Ginori. Paola Navone is an Italian architect and designer with an incredible portfolio of work. She continues to excel in everything she does with recent projects including The Conran Store, Crate & Barrell. In her long and many-sided career she has switched easily between the roles of architect, designer, art director, interior designer, critic, teacher and organiser of exhibitions and events, both independently and for select clients: Abet Laminati, Armani Casa, Knoll International, Alessi, Piazza Sempione, Mondo, Driade, Orizzonti, Arcade, Oltrefrontiera, Casamilano, Antonangeli, Dada, Molteni, Natuzzi, Roche Bobois and Swarovski being only some examples.gino01

yellowtrace_Paola-Navone_Paris-Apartment_01Above are images of her apartment in Paris. Her interiors are white, stark, contemporary and sexy.

If your passing by Europe, drop in to Milan for some exceptional design that you cant find anywhere else in the world. It is also a one off opportunity to be part of an amazing vibe that only pure design will pump. To see Paola’s latest collaboration take a look at The Conran store http://www.crateandbarrel.com/Paola

Chicfinds nostalgia at the start of Autumn

In Beautiful things, fashion on March 19, 2014 at 4:36 PM

I know it’s passed but I have a strong nostalgia for the beautiful Spring/Summer 13 collection of Bottega Veneta as Autumn breaks through and shows it’s earth spectrum of colour.Image

So feminine and beautifully tailored in silk crepe with the daisy print…Image

Feeling a sleeve and a knee length is kind of nice at the end of summer as the days become shorter and the tones get warmer. Even a transparent hosiery with a strappy sandal feels like a good idea after flip flops and lace up loafers.
