My grandma loves sitting in a car, sister – lying in a bath, someone can be a fan of late night tea talks at small kitchen or morning sigarette at a balcony with a city view. And I was desperately seeking for a reason to make one more post from the airport (my first pre-flight post was born in Riga, if you remember). Airport is my own special place, my best moment, when the foretaste of something extraordinary grows really big. And if a cup of coffee is added, than foretaste turns into euphoria. I even try not to drink coffee in Moscow too often to keep the feeling of it as my “travel drink”. 🙂
My only wish to do the best for you can turn into something strange sometimes. For example, I was thinking about showing you the wonderful discount at Shopbop online store (who is also presenting this cute clutch to one of my readers). But this way you won’t have any time to choose anything perfect at all! Cause FRIENDS&FAMILY discount started yesterday. But luckily, it will last till 18th of April.
Я наконец-то возвращаюсь к вам с хрониками нашей поездки в Ригу (обратили внимание, что стоило нам вернуться в Москву, как что-то пошло не так и обновления в блоге стали появляться реже?:) ). И пока мы только добрались до третьего дня, впереди еще много интересного! Но "экватор" недели моды стал для нас особенным, полным "местного" настроения. Посещение шоу-рума латвийских дизайнеров, наш любимый традиционный (и традиционно божественный!) десерт в Le Dome, прогулка по самым любимым местам исторического центра и, конечно, показы.

Ulle Suurhans-Pohjanheimo is a designer after estonian brand Pohjanheimo. For 20 years she’s been working as a haute couture atelier with minimalism aesthetics, when suddenly Ulle realized that she has reached the sky and to go further she needs to change something. At that time the first ladies of many countries as well as Viena Opera’s artists were wearing Pohjanheimo. So that was the moment when Ulle started pret-a-porter line and now, at the beggining of April, she showed her fourth collection in Riga.
Last season fashion show was above all my expectations so this time I was waiting for the show impatiently. And I can hardly say what was the saddest about it – the end of the Riga Fashion Week or the end of this wonderful show. I still can’t believe I was lucky enough to chat with Ulle the next day.
I’m sure you want new swimsuit for this season.Or a wonderful underwear for… Underwear doesn’t need any reason though. My friends from online store Sabotage are ready to make dreams come true! They also have beautiful negligees and fairy masks, by the way:) But to make wish come true, you have to follow some instructions as usual.
As far as I’m now travelling through Israel with Sela, I decided it’s just a right time to show your our unique photoshoot made in Moscow recently. It was first in a long time when I was shooted not by Alesha (though he was always near shooting video backstage), so I was very anxious to see the results. And they appear to be quite nice, do you agree?
We were working with the spring collection and I was allowed to choose a couple of outfits by myself. Honestly, it was quite hard, cause I’m totally in love with the spring lookbook and advertising campaign of this brand and couldn’t think of something else besides the looks from there. By the way, do you look through catalogues or ads for some inspiration before shopping?
There are some life events, that can’t be described in only one post. Well, actually they also can’t be described in two posts, but I’ll try to do my best:) This time besides traditional dancing video, #TSJproduction also managed to make a small backstage video. It was a 15 hours proccess full of emotions and it could have lasted way more longer if we didn’t turn to be so exhausted.
We did our best to show the atmosphere of our project in this video and it will also show you how many wonderful and talented people are involved in our videos.
Seems like we’re for the first time in Riga airport when it’s sunny outside. Giant windows decorated with flowers were made for this weather! I thought that week spend in Latvia recharged me 100%, but it appeared that couple more percents were spared for this moment here at the airport. But no matter if I will see sun above plains in Riga once more or not, I will definitely come back to this city again and again. For inspiration, for smiles, for confidence in who I am and what we’ve been doing. There can’t be anything more perfect than this old steets living modern live. Paving stones and plastic coffee cups. Old statues and up-to-date graffiti. Elderly couple coming to the same park bench for many years and teenagers playing with plastic swords in front of them. Riga is a city of contrasts, city of our emotions, desires and abilities, city of released ambitions and new plans. Riga, all our love – to you!
Due to all the travelling preparings we didn’t have enought time to visit Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia this season. The only exception was Mariano di Vaio blog talk I was hosting and a couple of fashion shows by my beloved or new for me designers. One from the last group is Zalina Verkhovskaya, the season’s debutant. I’m always curious about totally new collections, which you can’t have any pre-opinion about yet. It’s better to formulate it yourself, isn’t it? Hope you also like to find new interesting names, cause we prepared special video coverage for you. This day was kind of crazy, but very emotional and magical anyway.
