Today I would like to share a striking quote from a russian friend and dark lady about dressing black: “This city definitely forces me to wear black. Even if I’m in the mood for some other color.This world forces me to wear black. No other color makes me feel comfortable with the humans“. “ (Augustine Strindberg)
It is indeed so, at least for me. I feel somehow forced to dress black, no matter how my mood is and what I would like. I can not easily indulge to any other color anymore, the only reasonable alternative I can find, just sometimes, is blood red which clearly fits conceptually and aesthetically to black. This world forced me and forces me to dress black, to a concept of extreme style, sober yet striking elegance, extreme sorrow and extreme power as contradiction. I am contradiction, I am black.
For the occasion, while walking again through the nice streets of Berlin I will show you a new black slightly dark blue Denny Rose sheath dress with darker black corset bones. A “petite robe noir”, like Chanel liked to call it, very classical, modern and always a trend.
I matched the dress with one of my own creations: “pleased to meet you” chain leash choker with black rose, to add a touch of sensual and elegant darkness…
Oggi voglio condividere con voi una frase di grande effetto e sostanza detta da un´amica nonche´ dark lady russa sul vestirsi di nero: “ Questa città mi forza, in modo definitivo, a verstirmi di nero. Anche se sono dell´umore adatto per del colore. Questo mondo mi forza a verstirmi di nero. Nessun altro colore riesce a farmi sentire a mio agio con gli esseri umani“.(Augustine Strindberg)
E´davvero così, quantomeno per me. Mi sento in un qualche modo forzata a vestirmi di nero, indipendentemente dall´umore o dalla mia volontà. Non riesco facilmente a indulgere ad altri colori, l´unica alternativa ragionevole che riesco a trovare, a volte, è il color rosso sangue che corrisponde chiaramente sia concettualmente che esteticamente al nero. Questo mondo mi ha obbligato e mi obbliga a vestirmi di nero, mi forza a credere in un concetto di estremo stile, a una sobria eleganza capace allo stesso tempo di colpire, a un concetto di lutto estremo e potere estremo come contraddizione. Io sono contraddizione. Io sono il nero.
Per l´occasione, camminando come sempre tra le strade di Berlino, oggi vi mostro un tubino nero, a tratti blu scuro di Denny Rose con stecche di bustino in nero più scuro. Una “petite robe noir”, come amava definirlo Chanel, il tubino nero resta sempre di moda, come sincretismo tra classicità e modernità.
Assieme al tubino ho abbinato una delle mie creazioni: la collana di catena con rosa nera “pleased to meet you” che aggiunge un tocco di sensuale ed elegante oscurità.
Berlin, Invaliden cemetery… at the tree…“But Arwen went forth from the House, and the light of her eyes was quenched, and it seemed to her people that she had become cold and grey as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Then she said farewell to Eldarion, and to her daughters, and to all whom she had loved; and she went out from the city of Minas Tirith and passed away to the land of Lórien, and dwelt there alone under the fading trees until winter came. Galadriel had passed away and Celeborn had also gone, and the land was silent.
There at last when the mallorn-leaves were falling, but spring had not yet come, she laid herself to rest upon Cerin Amroth; and there is her green grave, until the world is changed, and all the days of her life are utterly forgotten by the men that come after, and elanor and nimphredil bloom no more east of the sea.” (Death Of Arwen-Lord of the Rings-Appendix I)
In Berlin, more than in other countries, many cemeteries are planned as parks and visited from a large crowd of residents and tourists..
I recently got a nice invitation at the cemetery from a german gentleman and, a part from taking it with dark humor, I found it very romantic as soon as I have seen of what kind cemetery we are talking about…
Places of silence and peace, marmor and nature, wild Ivi, red roses and oak trees. A romantic syncretism between ancient and modern… classic suggestions and nature, a spectacle for the eyes and for the soul. You feel finally in peace and you fear death no more. Very german and wagnerian indeed..

Berlin, Invaliden cemetery
The Invalids’ Cemetery (Invalidenfriedhof) is one of the oldest cemeteries in Berlin. It was the traditional resting place of the Prussian Army, and is regarded as particularly important as a memorial to the German Wars of Liberation of 1813-15.

As I told you a couple of days ago I was heading to Santiago De Compostela, not for a religious pilgrimage, but to pass some days with one of my best friends: Pati, who is living and studying here.
I was expecting sun and hot, not for now sadly… the weather is not being indulgent with me actually. Hopefully in the next days I will have the possibility to show you some fresh new bikinis I have bought in Milan.
Besides, my first impression of the day has been more then positive. Since I came out the airport’s doors I felt fascinated from the huge white modern and prospective architecture of the outside. Better than Milano Malpensa forsure :d

I also got suddenly aknowledge of the existance of black cigarettes: The Black Devils, which seems to be unavailable either in Berlin and Italy, correct me if I am wrong…
They comes In 3 different flavours: Tobacco and Chocolate, Tobacco and Vanilla , Tobacco and Cherry. The design of the cigarette itself is enhanced from the unusal black color and silver or black red signs.
Black Devil, Black Cigarettes
I like them, very stylish and the taste is very interesting. I would define them a mix between and E_cigarette and a normal Cigarette. So, how to say..in this days I am smoking BLACK….
First night out was clearly crazy, won’t go deep in details… but what can happen when two bad girls hang out together is all yours to imagine….
Pati wearing my own necklaces creations…. and a black and white dress from Blanco. We will talk better about this brand in the following posts…

If you are willing to hunt a black dressed nymph in the woods or in the marchland you need two basic things:
if you are the hunter: a good pair of hunter rubber shiny boots and an english cocker spaniel.
if you are the nymph: a good pair of rubber shiny boots (to hunt the hunter) and a cocker spaniel (to retrieve the prey)
If you are not into this hunting game but simply desire to enjoy a nice day in the proximity of a nimphaea lily lake you need anyway a good pair of rubber boots…and why not the cocker spaniel as well…
As fo me I decided to take a tour in a water lily lake near to Varese (Italy) with my dwarf english cocker spaniel (yes dwarf cockers exist, even if very rare to find and not recognized as an own race themselves) … outside and inside the lake… am I a witch or am I a nymph emerging from the water? Up to you to decide…
My look today: a short black dress with frontal chest fringe from Bershka “fringed dress”, with frontal and back cuts, a rose leash chain choker, my own creation, and rubber boots…
Rubber boots has been the latest trend of the season, I have seen them everywhere in Berlin and not just there, in every kind of color, short and high. As I am not a big fan of crazy colors and wild combinations, my favourite one has always been the black shiny ones or dark militray green. A “hunting style” very fashionable.
Here a couple of nice suggestions of classy black rubber boots:

details of the Operas of Alexeander Rodin, from his exhibition in Tacheles, Berlin.
Many berliners and foreigners consider Tacheles one of the coolest art project of the city: a “Trash and Cool” must see. The decadent rebellious atmosphere hides inside great art and talents. Colorful detailed graffiti all over the walls, stairs, dark, and on the top a strange light calling to enter in the little antechamber of the huge Alexeander Rodin`s exhibition. Giant paintings, contrasts of colors and details, contradictions, dramatic power and dark moods…I feel them like flesh and blood, like being at the edge of the World.
Is this black? I say yes, when something is so absolute then it´s Black, no matter how it appears… This man is really a great artist, I can say it.
As for me, today, “Trash and Cool” means: i pick up one of my best black tailleurs, a pair of sandals, my sunglasses and walk into the dirt enjoying all the creativity around me.
Today I am featuring:
- leash chain aluminium necklace, with red rose and vintage look from my own collection. Very soon on the market.
- Denny Rose summer season black limited edition tailleur (Thank you Lady Arpia for the nice gift:)) . The tight long pants are made of a double material. On the front a waved bright black satin, and on the back a mat black fabric.
The jacket is made of the same mat black fabric except the long arms in waved black satin.
- Bershka black sweather with shoulder studs and black sandals..
Molti berlinesi e stranieri considerano Tacheles uno dei progetti d´arte più interessanti della città. Un “trash&Cool” assolutamente da visitare. L´atmosfera decadente e ribelle nasconde al suo interno grande arte e talenti. Murales coloratissimi dappertutto sui muri, scale, buio e, in cima una strana luce che richiama ad entrare nella piccola anticamera dell´enorme esibizione di Alexeander Rodin: dipinti giganteschi, contrasti di colori e dettagli, contraddizioni, potere drammatico e umori oscuri… posso sentire questi quadri come fossero carne e sangue, come essere ai confini del Mondo.
E’ tutto ciò nero? Io dico di sì. Quando qualcosa è cosi assoluto allora è Nero. L´apparenza esterna è irrilevante. Un grande artista, di certo.
Per quanto mi riguarda, oggi, “trash and Cool” significa: scelgo uno dei miei migliori tailleurs neri, un paio di sandali, i miei occhiali da sole e cammino nello sporco godendomi tanta creatività.
Oggi vi presento:
- Collana in catena d´alluminio a guinzaglio con rosa rossa e look vintage. Mia personale creazione, presto in vendita.
- Denny Rose tailleur estivo nero in edizione limitata (grazie Lady Arpya per il regalo ). I pantaloni a sigaretta sono fatti davanti in satin ondulato e dietro in tessuto di colore opaco.
La giacca, dello stesso tessuto opaco a parte le maniche in satin ondulato strech.
- Bershka maglia nera con borchiette sulle spalline, e sandali alla schiava senza tacco neri.
