Marble Detailing…The Sculptures of Versailles

11515versstatWeb

11515VersWeb1The sculptures at Versailles, were for me, especially remarkable, because of the level of detail.

 

The same way in which I was taken by how realistically the fabric had been painted within the paintings at Versailles, it was incredible to see how realistically the textures of fabrics were carved into these sculptures.

 

Considering how heavy a material they were working with and how fluid of an item they were trying to convey, it’s amazing they were not only able to achieve the drape of chainmail or lace but the detailing of both as well.

Shopping Report….Embellished & Sporty

So cool!!

 

I saw these two bags in stores and thought how great they both were, but it wasn’t until later that I realized what makes them similarly cool.

 

They’re both covered in beautiful embellishment but the dressy/evening aspect of each bag is countered perfectly with something contrastingly sporty.

 

The Silver Miu Miu bag is covered in a beautiful stamp of paillettes, sequins, and crystals – but the shape of the bag itself is nothing more than a drawstring gym bag.

 

The Black Marni bag would make a great little box clutch on its own – but with the addition of the sporty oversized strap, it walks a perfect balance between evening and day.

 

Cheers to Miu Miu and Marni! It’s great to see designers designing accessories that possess this dichotomy.
