Not very long ago we featured Ukranian Valery Kovalska’s F/W 13 collection. The femininity of the items combined with a slightly gothic touch really captivated me. This time, her new SS14 designs show a great versatility with a diverse use of textures and colors but still keeping Kovalska’s trademarks alive to depict a futuristic princess.


Once again, the asymmetry is one of the biggest characteristics of the collection; therefore, Valery plays with materials such as net and cutouts added to the dresses and shirts. But more surprisingly, this time the designer has used sheer to decorate some of the gowns; which has given volume and sweetened the collection. Even Japanese tailoring has its place with sateen items that once again, prove the complexity of Ukranian‘s designs. However, all the looks still keep the futuristic vibes that make Kovalska‘s garments so special. She has managed to create a very balanced collection where urban yet futuristic and tough yet feminine hints are perfectly gathered.

When we live in the big city, we sometimes need to get away from it. Leave behind the whirlwind, the big buildings, thousands and thousands of people running from one place to another or the peak hours in the underground. We need to find a little bit of fresh air and purity in the countryside. But the best would be to bring the pureness of nature to our own place and give it a contemporary twist.


Máximo Riera‘s furniture designs can really bring the essence of natural elements and mix them with modern hints to have as a result creative and attractive furnishings. In his series ‘Millenial Consoles’, he uses lifeless debris from millenarian olive tree woods from the south of Spain that are held in a surprising colorful labyrinthine structure. Both styles combine perfectly and the special features of the main material used in the pieces, add a lot uniqueness and beauty.

If I take a look into the upcoming Études AW14/15 preview collection is very easy to get lost into the prints featured in the items. Just like their last season, once again the brand creates an engaging series of designs filled with a series of prints that have a futuristic and surrealistic touch. The predominance of blue and black shades, adds a very tough and serious touch that is combined with oversized shape that give a young look. I like how wearable the items are; and the workers silhouettes is showed with a lot of elegance, but still keeping the striking and strong look that is wanted. This season they have once again succeeded in creating a versatile collection that gathers sportive, modern but classy and richly tailored items.

We all have our dream house. We try to think of how we would decorate it or in which part of the world we would love to have it. Nowadays, either it’s too expensive or we don’t have enough time to care about it; but we all know how important it is to customize our space and make it ours.


The little details in every corner of a house make a huge difference and the comfort is essential. I constantly think about how my ideal house would be. But there are so many ideas coming to my mind that I would need a huge mansion to fit in all the types of spaces that I would like to create. What is for sure is that I would really like to live in an open space; a warehouse with enough space to let me play with different furniture. White spaces, brick walls and big windows would be perfect. But I can’t deny that a small space full of ethnic blankets in vibrant colors and antiquities in every corner is perfect to create our home, the perfect place in the world.
