In 1968, Carlo Scarpa was invited by his close friends, Laura and Gianni Tabarelli, to the slopes of the vineyard village of Cornaiano near Bolzano, Italy. The couple, who were regular patrons in the circles of the Italian design elite, founded their furniture showroom through which they sold Gianni’s pieces. At this point in time, Scarpa had already established a name for himself within the world of architecture, and having built up a strong relationship over the years, they asked him to design a house for their family alongside his longtime collaborator, Sergio Los. The result is a work that has been rarely seen with timeless furnishings and works of art.
Today I got a pair of All Tomorrow’s Parties sandals with the post. Couldn’t be more excited since I love them in, well, every model. I may have mentioned this before but it’s so cool that the sandals are made in 100 percent vegetable dyed cow leather, and made in Italy by local craftsmen. Love it! Anyway, a while back a boutique near by got a delivery of them and I couldn’t keep my hands away and I got myself the ‘Unni’ python sandal. And now I am so happy to received the same model, but in black from ATP. Thank you guys! I love them. I will definitely post some pictures later on when I start using them. A bit too cold for now, but soon I hope… If you like me love these sandals you should check them out here!
If I only would get myself one bag, ever (!), it would definitely be a bag from The Row. They are impeccable done both in the design and the craftmanship (made in Italy, even if the main prodcution of The Row line is in America). I am in love with the backpack in alligator leather. The navy one is to die for! Although the shopper model (underneath) is a keeper.
