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.
Yesterday…a two hours trip by car from Santiago to Sarria, to visit Pati’s aunt who lives there….I had the opportunity to see a bit more of the region of Galicia and not just the nature… Many groups of pilgrims on their ways by feet walking the main street trough the woods a to get to Santiago…( we will talk better about the pilgrims in another post)…
Sarria is a municipality in the province of Lugo, northwestern Spain, in the autonomous community of Galicia. It is head of the region and a popular starting point to begin the Camino de Santiago; many pilgrims (the lazy ones) choose Sarria because the distance from this point to Santiago allows them to cover the necessary kilometers to get the Compostela: 110 km.
Even if not formally invited (for now) I self-invited myself in to take a look at the good job of the monks and their nice relaxing cloister with a central rose garden. A well dressed and slightly chained lady in black is always welcome… don’t you think so?
The Lady in the cloister…
wearing “All the Forbidden Things” chain leash choker, my own creation, Blanco black three gold buttons skirt, Top Intimissimi…
Sarria (Lugo) Cloister of the “Convento de La Merced”
Sarria, Cloister of the “Convento de La Merced”, VITA AETERNA door (no clue what is hidden behind that door, I could just hear the sound of a neverending walk, forward and backward on a wood floor…maybe a father meditating?)
From the darkness to the light… trough the door of eternal life…
In the garden of the cloister…
The roses of the fathers….
I have to say I was expecting a little bit more of cure for the garden, the flowers were not at their bests…
The monastry from the outside…
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…
Pati and me:)
Another nice gift:
Long trail black lack dress, Lucia dress long, from a very talented Berlin based designer: Tatjana Warnecke.
Her “Cosmic Couture line” is a mix of fetish, haute couture, military uniforms and Sci Fi inspirations. Reminds me of the Borg Queen, somehow.
The long chain aluminum necklace is one of my own creations very soon on the market…
