Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

The Saint-Tropez Zip & the new issue of Vogue Paris, pretty, pretty underthings and golden Guccis, here are a few things we love this week for Springtime . . .

Furniture Designer: Atelier Gustavo Bittencourt

Gosto bastante de desenvolver meus móveis com um diferencial, gosto de criar uma relação com as pessoas, desenvolver uma interação, pois penso em móveis atemporais, que durem para uma vida inteira. Portanto estes móveis acabam se tornado não apenas móveis, mas um bem imaterial, insubstituível, que acaba fazendo parte da família, de sua história. Acredito que quando colocamos a mão, como artesãos, passamos nossos sentimentos para o móvel, o que traz alma e o torna único.

Great Love Stories: An Archive

A waifish figure and large, brown, doe-like eyes; a tiny, cinched in waist and sweet, elfin features; a willowy dancer’s body, slight but strong from years of ballet training—always graceful and ever ladylike—it is difficult to believe that this beautiful woman, both inside and out, would wait almost her entire life to find true love but—when she did find it, it was truly great . . .
