LIVING UP, GIVING UP.


I HAD to get on this one!

So Grimes signs with Jay Z's Roc Nation and pops THIS!!!! rumour had it around me that her new stuff had destroyed the electropop goddess' mystical vibes into something drum n bass-ish and cheap. But to me this is for sure not a sell out, and sounds more like gooooood good trap with the same good old angelic but dramatic vocals. That's exactly why I like to give everything and everyone a chance before rolling with the hate wave. I don't get why our generation has such difficulties to see artists evolve or at least try a new thing. I personally couldn't be happier for her to have jumped onto Jay's wing. You can see there's still a lot of freedom for her art and vision and well.....lotta MONEY too, yum.

Maybe it's weird to say but my eyes find rest in this visually as well. There's a lot of references but none of them are obvious to the point of boredom. The photography value to it all is GOLD! and styling was a dream.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

EMOTIONALLY MELT-ED.



/LFILE No. 13 by my adorably talented sis Lucciana.

With almost tears in my eyes and a full knot in my throat, I've just revisited our MELT festival 2014 experience by hitting replay several times and I think I'm on to hit it a couple more times after I'm done writing this. It's almost silly how these three days on a campside, with only a few hours of sleep per day and under crazy temperatures can generate so many butterflies in one's stomach through memories.

For the same reason we woke up every morning all hangover thinking: "How will I ever get through today?" I remember to have kept on repeating to myself: "enjoy each second" because it was all truly over before we knew it.

And although it still feels heavily sad for it to be over again, this video right here is still us, all those moments are still ours and they will be forever.

Thanks to Lucci for the revival and to everyone in this video:

I
LOVE
YOUUUUUU

WHITE SHIRTS, SILVER GAMES, ART HOUSES.


photos by Cédric.

So here's a look and three shirts I've worn literally out for the last couple of days. While packing back in the city, I included tons of printed, striped, and colorful silk shirts for my Spanish wardrobe, but there's just something about white, clean-cut cotton essentials that a lot of other shirts can't compete with. 

The closest town and beach around here is at least half an hour away by car, so keeping yourself entertained within the house and garden all of a sudden becomes the second most important priority besides keeping yourself fresh and cool. This is how I've recently become obsessed with the french game Pétanque. Coming from someone who's not into any kind of games (except SNES Mario Bros and Donkey Kong) I can say this is a really nice game in which competition happens in a chill and laid back way. Though who am I kidding, I just think the sight of these silver boules on grass or even dirt is amazing.

But okay, further than french ball games (lol), ice cold drinks and good deep house mixes by the pool under these crazy temperatures, on this second and last week on our gorgeous villa in Taravaus, we decided to do a little more than sunbathe; being Salvador Dalí's house (now museum) in Portlligat our main destination. The house that became Dalí’s main residence in 1930 started off as a small fisherman’s hut. Then Dalí went to work on the structure, renovating it little by little over the next 40 years, creating a living, breathing, labyrinthine home that reflects the artist’s one-of-a-kind aesthetic. It will be a long car ride still, but I already know it will be totally worth it...and if not, at least I'll have somethingelse to post on IG besides pool selfies.

DEAR DEARS
