MZA’ART EXHIBITION

Storytelling is part of being human. You can’t really separate it. We are all telling stories, even when we think we are not. Wearing jewelry is one of the many ways. By now most of you know that a while back we embarked on a new project, a Silver and Gold jewelry line called R I W A Y A. If you’ve missed it, here’s a post that sums it up and you can follow the brand’s Instagram account @storiesworn for the latest updates. Continue reading “MZA’ART EXHIBITION”

DETOX

Just like passion and love, creativity grows on its use. Lately and though it has been quiet here on the blog, we have been exercising our creativity avidly on both personal and professional projects, some of which we can’t wait to share on the blog. Between all the work and growing, we always crave that one-day detox where we can escape to a tranquil place and recharge. We do lots of nothings and that is sometimes all you need. Where’s your detox place? Continue reading “DETOX”

The Basket Bag

What once was humble has become an “it” item. Following the path of torn out jeans and worn out tees (pieces destined for the bin before they were classified as cool), the basket bag has now stepped in. Before waking up to finding every straw bag sold out, it was a bag that we used to use for the beach and if you were traveling to places like Bali, it would be their equivalent of a plastic bag. We are honestly delighted by the transformation. Continue reading “The Basket Bag”

Instagram Jeans

Some trends are so pretty you feel they were made for Instagram. Pearl-embellished jeans seem to be one of them. It’s been a while since we put our skinny jeans to rest and have dutifully embraced wide leg pants, flares, and high-waist jeans but adding something so small and delicate as pearls definitely doubles the outfit glam. These Zara pants are probably one of their bestseller items this season, and it’s easy to see why. The pearls seem to barely be touching the denim, giving off a fairy vibe.

Superga Everyday

We cannot be who we are on social media, not completely. No matter how much someone keeps on insisting that they are their true self, deep down we all know that there is always something orchestrated. The light, the angle, the words, something subconsciously has been planned, and more often than not, a caption tries to erase all doubt by insisting that it was “spur of the moment”, and it succeeds at only confirming the contrary. And little by little, the world becomes comfortable with the distorted perspective on reality. Continue reading “Superga Everyday”

DIY Pompom sneakers

Our favorite season to undertake DIY projects is finally here! With the warm weather come the burst of colors and ideas. Today, a very simple DIY trick can transform your favorite sneakers into one of the latest coveted trends. Other than being super easy to do, this project is cool because the makeover can be temporary so you can remove it, interchange it with other colors, add more than one pompom, or just simply play with it as you please. Continue reading “DIY Pompom sneakers”

ART DUBAI 2017

They wished us to live in an interesting era, and for what seems like most of the time, we unfortunately do. Simply put, mediocre talent is constantly being praised and rewarded, in almost all domains. Luckily, we have the remarkable days, when greatness from all around the world manages to come together and hope is temporarily restored. Yesterday, I attended the press conference announcing the eleventh edition of Art Dubai, an international art fair taking place in Madinat Jumeirah. I got to experience how talent, cultural diversity, and innovation are celebrated and come together to shape who we are, where we are and where we would like to go. Continue reading “ART DUBAI 2017”

Bag Discovery

Have you ever had enough of something without even owning it? It happens to us sometimes, seeing the same shoes or bags over and over again being worn by a complete stranger can drive you to think that you have it and that you would gladly give it a rest at the back, back of your closet. Instagram’s influx of photos does not really help. Seeing the big international brands everywhere and on everyone can sometimes be a put-off, considering the 4-digit price figures you have to pay, and the counterfeit wave that usually follows a successful bag model. And so we are enlightened when we come across new brands that are offering unpretentious designs complemented by great quality. Continue reading “Bag Discovery”

Discovering Chaumet

If we love jewelry with a story, you can imagine our sentiment towards a house that boasts more than two hundred and thirty five years of emperors, queens, popes, and tycoons, simply anybody who has ever been somebody. Great originality, opulence and beauty dominate each design. Every piece transmits the incredible amount of labor and detail that goes into it, and it manages to humble the spectator as it empowers the bearer. Continue reading “Discovering Chaumet”
