Dior Cruise Collection 2018Β 

The Dior Cruise Collection 2018 by Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by heritage. The collection was presented on May 12 in a native-Indian reserve in the hills near Santa Monica. Dior Cruise 2018 is a beautiful collection made of delicately embroidered dresses in white, beige and earthy tones, with cave art drawings, flowers and written words. Chiuri’s first resort collection for the Dior Sauvage woman mixed tradition and world heritage with alta moda, femininity, city chique and even sport. 

The Fashion Guitar shows how to wear a beautiful Dior dress from the Cruise collection with a cool Dior bag and slingbacks for a day on the beach πŸ’™. My daily luxury for the summer is inspired by Dior’s Cruise Collection: a long dress in tule or lace by Dior or Liu Jo, small Lockette bag in sand by Choo, turquoise jewelry by Tiffany and co, and Dior’s essential s/s make-up collection in white, sand and coral.

Love her style πŸŒΊ

Some women own a naturally beautiful style 🌺 You may find them within your family and friends, in magazines, in old movies, in fashion blogs, and in the streets and boutiques of beautiful cities like Barcelona, New York, Milan and Firenze. These beautiful, classy women are truly an inspiration to me. And also the cool kids, models, Brooklyn babies and fashion bloggers inspire me with their casual coolness. I love the mix of classic elements with my own casual and cool style. The new chic is presented by cool and comfy clothes in beautiful silhouettes, soft fabrics and textures. For example, a beige cashmere dress, a soft white tee with a Liu jo jeans and Valentino or Acquazzura heels, a white knit dress from Twin-Set or a beige silk dress from Patrizia Pepe with a denim jacket. A sporty cool style is upgraded by the softest materials and chic designs. While classy pieces are dressed down with a tee, denim and sneaks.

Dressed in my new daily luxuries, I’m good to go to the beach or to enjoy a summer breeze in the city. This summer, every summer, I’m thinking of beautiful white, soft beige and lovely turquoise to wear. And this summer, too, I’ll find new daily luxuries in my favorite summer colours to have and to hold.

To begin with, I need minimally one of the beautiful Liu Jo bottom up jeans. This daily luxury is more of a necessity to your basic summer collection.

Secondly, I love the beautiful items from Patrizia Pepe’s spring/summer collection. I love the combination of classic and cool. The summer collection features classic items like the trench coat with a beautiful new fit and casual feel to it, to dress it down, while sporty items like the baseball sweater become chique, because of the beautiful details, embellishments and soft fabrics.

Not only do I need a new pair of blue Liu Jo jeans and a beige trench coat from Patrizia Pepe, I would love to shop beige Choo’s sneakers, turquoise Valentino heels, a blue bikini and white lace summer dress from Twin-set, a Chanel backpack, a Dior or Bulgari watch, a bracelet from the beautiful T collection from Tiffany’s…πŸ’™

Barca: city on the beach πŸ’™

The thing that I love most about Barcelona is that it is a beautiful city on the beach. One day you can explore the beautiful architecture of the city and the Mediterranean culture, and the other day you can have a lovely day on the beach. The city is divided in several barrios or districts, from the chique and beautiful Eixample, the little and authentic streets of Borne and Gracia to the chirrinquitos and beaches of Barceloneta. To begin with, you need to go to the Passeig de Gracia to shop, where you will find the beautiful boutiques of Loewe, Chanel, Burberry, Liu Jo, Tiffany’s, Bulgari, Maje, Mango, and Zara home, and have macarons with caffe con leche at the little bakeries in Via Pau Claris (don’t miss the dolci at Γ‰picerie). In the Passeig de Gracia you will find beautiful architecture and the fairytale buildings from GaudΓ­ (Casa Batllo and la Pedrera). In the little streets of Gracia you will find many tapas restaurants to choose from, while the many restaurants and shops in Borne offer you a mix of Mediterranean and international places to explore. A beautiful example is the delicious restaurant in Borne named Ikibana, which is a fusion restaurant based on Japanese and Brazilian dishes (urumaki sushi with strawberry and palmhearts anyone? πŸ’™). While it is much fun to go stand up paddle surfing in Barceloneta and to drink and eat in one of the chirrinquitos on the beach and the iconic W hotel, the beach in Mar bella is more beautiful and relaxing to swim and enjoy the sun πŸ’™. When you come to Barca, don’t forget to visit these beautiful places in the city and on the beach:

  1. The Passeig de Gracia and its beautiful shops and boutiques πŸ’™, for example Loewe, Chanel, Burberry, Liu Jo, Max Mara, Bulgari, Tiffany’s, Jimmy Choo, Maje, Mango, and Zara home. The Liu Jo shop is in Bulevard Rosa, Paseo de Gracia 51 (www.liujo.it).
  2. The beautiful architecture from GaudΓ­ can be seen in the Passeig de Gracia 43 and 92; Casa Batillo and Casa MilΓ  (la Pedrera). Don’t forget to go to Parc GΓΌell as well for the mosaΓ―c beauty and the city view (in Gracia).
  3. Γ‰picerie, try the dolci and macarons in this lovely patisserie in Via Pau Claris 145.
  4. Ikibana, best sushi restaurant in Borne πŸ’™ with a fusion from Japanese and Brazilian cuisine, in Passeig Picasso 32 (www.ikibana.es).
  5. Mar bella is a beautiful beach in Barca to swim and bathe in the sun πŸ’™.
  6. Maka maka, a burger place on the beach in Barcelonetta serving delicious fries with wasabi mayonaise mm, in Passeig de Joan de BorbΓ³ 76 (www.makamaka.es).
  7. Cdlc club and restaurant for your chique days and nights out πŸ’™ in Passeig maritim 32 (www.cdlcbarcelona.com).
  8. Sitges, little place on the beach you need to visit (near Barcelona).
  9. For summer and beachy days, you can go stand up paddle surfing in Barceloneta (surfboards are available at Boardriders in Carrer de la Drassana 10, or Locals in Passeig Joan de BorbΓ³ 80-84). No passa nadaaπŸ’™.
