Marie Nouvelle. The colors, the emotion, the energy

Marie

I knew Maria only from her online presence until one day, my friend Bianca introduced us. I’m gonna be honest, I was expecting to see a shy artist and a daydreamer, but Maria is much more than that. She is energy, she is determination, she is power and she is color.

I like to ask people about their color- I strongly believe that everyone has his own color, you know, like our way of being is related to a color; for example I think I’m yellow- I’m happy, optimistic, energized, solar . So I asked her as well, and she said she is purple, or turquoise. Which makes sense, but I think she is more like orange or red, cause she has this fire inside her, the fire of creation and the fire of succeeding. And it’s contagious!

We've met over a cup of tea to plan a video for her brand and we did this exercise to write down every word that’s coming to our mind when thinking of Maria’s art (and, of course, at her business of applied art). And you know what, it was so natural and organic that we kept and used them all. One is missing though. It was so obvious that we took it for granted, we did not mention it; nevertheless is everywhere, is the core of her business and what she transmits the most. It’s energy! Good energy.

I find it fascinating how everything starts with a white canvas and a brush, an emotion, and a thought and become a mix of feelings, energy, and good vibes. Enough talking, let’s watch the video and enter in the art mood. Don’t forget to visit her page and be prepared to be inspired every day, all the way.

The story of a dress

Pacco_rabbane

The Couture Fashion Week just ended and seeing the collections makes me wonder: do we realize how much work involves a single garment? Yes, we do, you would say immediately, and so do I, but, seeing the movie Chanel did to empower their couture collection made me realize we don't have a clue. We think we know, but do we really? Take this dress, for example, how many hours did they spent sewing all these applications, how much precision you need to make it look perfect? How much attention invested, how much energy? How much power has this single garment received?

And that makes me wonder again, do this energy goes with the dress to the rich ( and mainly old) woman who purchased it? Do you think that the one who's buying it feels this energy by wearing it or by simply own it? I mean is she feeling the power given by the love, the sweat, the time and the vision those little fingers invested in it?

I do, she feels it! I think that's the real value, not the money spent on it. And I think the real couture consumer is paying for art, not for another piece of clothing. Because this is what couture is, art!

When I asked if I can take her picture she said yes, but also she mentioned she will not look at me cause she's shy and she doesn't know how to pose. I said ok, and that's the result! #fashion week #paris #on the street #stella mccartney #street style #paris street style #cool
