luxury fashion blogger overlooking lake lugano switzerland

living the life you love

Lugano might just be the most perfect destination. Each year, I have the privilege of traveling to this place to work in our studio. Sometimes, we even get to work outside of the studio. By 5 o’clock, we freed ourselves from the work table littered with magazine clippings. We had been collectively researching the top fashion trends for fall. photography:GAIA GRIGOLETTO | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III |   August and September in Lugano are absolutely beautiful. The destination – Lake Lugano, just a few blocks away from our working studio. The purpose – shooting lifestyle edits for our luxury footwear brand, Naked Feet. After late nights, a determined focus, and hours spilled over different forms of media, we were energized for the release. The air was warm with a hazy overcast. The muted sun created a feeling of comfort. The look had been planned weeks in advance. A ravaging cocktail dress by Elliatt arrived early for the shoot, even before it was available for pre-order at Revolve. There are some perks to being a luxury …

anne fontaine review of bohemian french parisian style

Parisian style and luxury essentials | Anne Fontaine pre-fall collection

Orange crisp leaves mingle with late-summer buds. The very air seems warm in hue. Mid-day still brings out freckles and sun-kissed cheeks, while midnight brings chills and firefly lights. September has arrived, and with it the first signs of fall. A late summer has kept roses and purple blossoms in full bloom, but they won’t last for long. If you could bottle it all and pour its essence into a collection of wearable luxuries, you’d experience the Anne Fontaine pre-fall collection. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | outfits c/o:ANNE FONTAINE   Speckled with potpourri floral prints and exquisite fabrics, Anne Fontaine’s line of luxury fashion pieces are a treat for the romantic at heart. Burnt orange, blush and lavender hues compliment their wardrobe staples of black and white day-to-night essentials. Full lace and artisanal embroidery grace modern, feminine silhouettes. This season, a flair of Parisian style can be seen in the collection of dreamy blouses and flowing dresses. French Parisian style has become a notable summer and fall fashion trend this year. I …

state cashmere review

something about the feel of cashmere | sustainable fashion

You know when you see a puppy and you can’t help but to dig your fingers into their soft plush fur for a scratch? Pull the sleeves down over your hands, it feels good to sink into a cocoon of luxury. Even in the summer months, there’s something about cashmere that is unlike any other material. What a privilege to experience summer with cool air vents creating a refuge indoors, where we can still afford ourselves the luxury of snuggling down in soft, plushy warmth. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable cashmere sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) The natural fibers fold together pulled tight by the intricate knitting. Tracing a covered hand over your face, you can almost sink into the sensation. Even cuddling a baby bunny with your bare hands is challenged by this competition of plushness. Cashmere. The kingsize bed of fabrics, cashmere is a wool fiber spun from select goat breads from the mountains. There’s no itch. It’s like fuzzy butter against your skin. While there …

luxury fashion blog and the importance of minimalism

the beauty of white space | change your life with nothing

A break from the mundane, last week’s adventure was a long-form hike up some treacherous grounds for an editorial shoot for Naked Feet shoes. The brand is a footwear label that specializes in unearthing true comfort through simple, luxury style. The concept for the campaign was unbelievable comfort, so these sacchetto styles were shot unbelievable backdrops – namely the Appalachian mountains. photography:JOSH WOLFE MUSIC | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | luxury shoes:NAKED FEET SHOES   The journey itself was an adventure – from long gravel roads to a broken down car and a few miles hiking up the wrong direction, we never actually made it to the destination. But a loss? Far from it. Not only were we able to capture a beautiful part of nature and fashion colliding, we were able to enjoy the luxury of taking work outside the office breathing in the fresh summer air.  Scaling sharp rocks in heels and luxury fashion? Sign me up. Not a soul was spotted up in this remote sanctuary, and the silence was a blessing …

silence | learning to embrace the luxury of time

The keys clinked in the dish where I dropped them on the shelf. Then, the house was silent. The laughter, stories, cocktails and dinners had faded to ghosts of the past. That was yesterday. Today, nothing moved or breathed besides my own flesh, returning home from the office and pouring a glass of wine. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable organic cotton sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) It’s always been odd to me that some people resist those moments alone. They often find solace in companionship and conversation. Don’t get me wrong, while deeply introverted in my regeneration, I’m quite a bird in social settings. Yet, there is something rewarding in coming home to nothing but silence. You can hear the birds just outside the windows. There are no distractions. There is time to relax and enjoy a moment of stillness. Life has become chaotic and overrun with stimulation. So much so, that nothing is stimulating at all. That is, all but the luxury of time. Time that we …
