 Finding the perfect perfume is not an easy task!
For sure things are easier if you find a store like

in Forte dei Marmi, a luxury little town on the Tuscany's coast.
In this fragrant boutique you can only find "niche" perfumes,
including the top brands that are internationally known as the

To navigate in this ocean of the senses you need a master
commander and I have found one in Mrs. Stefania, the store manager.
She walked me into an olfactive journey and together we have found
my perfect fragrance. While that remains a secret (no woman should reveil what
fragrance is wearing) I am happy to share with you this fantastic

Sportmax Summer 2012 Backstage Pass

Toni Garrn

 Milan, 24th September

It has been a pleasure to meet the
Sportmax Head Designer
Ms. Grazia Malagodi

I love her outfit! Very stylish from any point of view.
She explained her inspiration for this
Spring Summer Collection
and my mind goes
Her own outfit looked like an OBSIDIAN made corset.
The fantastic fabrics were like SCALES of a MODERN MERMAID.

Lets start with the DIVINE shoes
I must have one pair of this pumps!

All the fabrics were wonderful.
True in the Sportmax tradition the collection
is modern, edgy and the craftmanship is
sublime! The stiches are perfect, the cuts proportioned,
again the fabrics are right on.
The shimmer, the pearlescents were my favorites.
I already picked out a few outfits that are going to be
my everyday uniforms this spring.
Also I liked the bag in metallic leather.

 The perfect spring summer pump.
The color is so chic.

How can I wait until next spring to get all these beautiful items?

Now a photo with Make up Artist


First let me say that she was so nice!|
Her clear fresh attitude is well expressed
in her make up works.
The looks really bring out the natural beauty of the models.
A fantastic job! Brava Hanna

A few models are still finishing up hair.


JACQUELYN JABLOUSKI, one of my favorite models
and a friend (I will tell you how she is as soon as I find out)
are sitting in a corner very quietly.
Thank you JAC for letting me take your picture.


Time is going by FAST!
A last minute adjustment to make a pair of shoes a little larger
for a model....oh well! You will never tell they were tight
when you see these professional models on the runway


A look at the monitor backstage
the salon is getting busy...I must go too and find a good spot.

The show is almost starting...BUT WAIT
Anna Dello Russo runs in with one of her
fun hats...

  Front row: two of the Italian Fashion Nobility
Giusy Ferrè and Beppe Modenese.

Here  are some of my favorite outfits
that I just admired backstage.

Buyers and Press are really going crazy...
everybody is taking pictures.

The jade green dress is the PERFECT dress for this
Summer's parties

A great show and a SUPERB collection.
Even more beautiful if you get the opportunity to
feel the softness of the fabrics, like a summer ocean breeze.
Trust me.

Guillaume Hinfray e Marco Censi FIVEinFIVE

A brief interview with the equally divine
 Guillaume & Marco

3 perfect words
Three words that clink and fit perfectly together
Guillaume Hinfray

(which means the foot arch)
a French word I adore,
for both sound and meaning
"my love" in arabic
certainly the most knowed word in this language.
Could you imagine a more sensual ans sweet sound?
Simple, easy, short,efficient ...
an absolutly perfect product, under every aspect,
even on a marketing point of view.
Marco Censi

The historical figures who you like the most

I have a predilection for Constance of Hauteville, Queen of Sicily.
She is a kind of a modern heroine in the Middle Age:
rebel, nun, mother, statewoman...
She acted as woman in Court and knight for her Kingdom!
It is hard to imagine this life today!
Guillaume Hinfray

I have two, both of the XX Century:
Nikola Tesla and Ettore Majorana.
It is certainly too long to tell you about the lifes of this two scentific genius
who are incredibly riches, fashinating, mysterious...
Marco Censi

Please close your eyes and tell me what music comes to your mind

Melody Nelson, my favorite work of Serge Gainsbourg
This timeless album conjugate an ideal blend
of classical and modern sounds.
So grandiose and secret.
Guillaume Hinfray depends...
when I am relaxed my mind selects All I Need from Air.
If I feel excited and full of energy it is the Knight's Dance,
from the second act of Prokofiev's Romeo and juliet.
In case of blues...the beautiful Nostalgia from David Sylvan.
....mmmh...right now it is the Air turn!
Marco Censi

Your favorite Restaurant?

Heavens! there are so many Restaurants we love.
Le Compagnons
it is a family affair brasserie in Boulogne,
where we use to go while in Paris.
It is friendly, cosy, quite impossible to imagine
a more one.hundred.per.cent Pure French style place.
The athmosphere never changed in the last few decades,
you can still hear Edith Piaf and Gilbert Becaud chatting.
And the food is fantastic, of course!
Guillaume and Marco

There is something very special in wearing a shoe with a the
inside made out of pure silk

 I consider the external part of a shoe as an armor that brings
power to a woman.
The inside part seemas should be the intimate side
that brings self confidence...le jardin secret of a woman.
So what could be better then silk satin?
Guillaume Hinfray

It has been a delightful experience meeting Guillaume and Marco.

This is the word that came to my mind......

when two great mind get together infinite ripples of energy emerge.

Guillaume and Marco thank you for your hospitality,
your wit and charm is timeless as the
sublime shoes you make.
