Step into the Sun is set in Africa, in the background the nature surrounding a minimalist and elegant Safari. A warm and enveloping atmosphere, with a dreamy soul that does not lose touch with reality. A hidden side of a reality you think you know, of a resilience and honesty of the wild world that should be a cue for humanity.
“Body is (as) art” Masterpiece wants to emphasize the association of these two elements, to make them even closer. The body, its imperfections and forms, whatever they are, are to be seen as works of art. Also the irregularly shaped beads, known as “baroques” and appreciated only by the most experienced: wonderfully unusual, organic and completely unique.“Your body is good enough exactly as it is; you are good enough exactly as you are.”
In Sciura we want to give light and space to an unintentional cultural phenomenon that starts in the city of Milan but has expanded in other cities of the world. Elegant and refined ladies in a vintage setting that evokes the 1970’s in attitude and lifestyle. Hair always styled, haughty attitude, handbag and breakfast in the historic cafes in Montenapoleone with the best friend of a lifetime, a timeless beauty that gives new generations a run for their money.
What is tangible is what is believable. [Nothing but] Garden wants us to reconnect with naturewhen we are in nature, we completely forget who we are in the mundane world. We forget about social constructions and standards of behavior, of being and appearing. We are completely free to be ourselves. We rediscover the beauty of taking care of something, flowers and plants, finding in this a mindfulness practice to relax and rediscover the power of wonder.
Soliloquy wants to give space to our inner self, giving it the right space and attention. It is not necessary to be alone to be lonely; it is not necessary to be alone when you are alone. In a seemingly candid and dreamy aesthetic lies an introspective and vulnerable side that wants to defeat negativity with irony, order behind disorder, perfection behind imperfection.
A community. A family away from family. Urban Poetry is a tale of everyday life lived on the road, where friendship and brotherhood are the keywords. A coming together of different cultures, of different people, of different genders, of different ages who communicate and share their stories and experiences meeting at sunset “at the usual place,” the skate park.
