I had never heard of this woman called Simone Veil until I stepped over in France for a holiday. She had recently died and the news of passing away was everywhere on the radio, the newspapers and television. I got curious. Who was she? Why was she so important?

A Chat with Carolina Lifestyle’s Creative Director

PeopleCool

PeopleCool is one of the most special sections of this blog. It is a space to picture style. Most of the time I look for it on the streets, where I can find authentic people using fashion as a way to express their freedom. But there are other times when I feel that I need a deeper conversation. Sometimes words play a great complement to the image and explain us better the world we are living in. This is why PeopleCool is also a one of a kind opportunity to talk to people who have lives, jobs and thoughts that inspire me.

An Italian Musician in Bondi

PeopleCool

Anyone who has been in Bondi knows him well. He is not famous but when he sings on the street everybody falls in love with his sweet Italian words. He is one of the most elegant people I usually see around here. The tie is not really a trend in Sydney’s relaxed environment, but he comes to work in his suit every single day. I admire his passion and discipline to do a job that comes only from his heart, that despite many admirers does not give him what he needs to survive, and yet he is happy, and yet he smiles, and yet he enjoys life.

Styling Arjuna

PeopleCool

There is always a Balinese performing a ceremony in Bali. Anywhere, everywhere! My favourite ceremony was about Arjuna, one of the most important characters of the Mahabaratha Gita or ‘The Song of the Lord’, an epic poem that is extremely important for the Hindu tradition and that was studied by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the book ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ in India.

On the Street

PeopleCool

Waking in Sydney’s Pitt St I found Michelle, a Chinese model who has been living in Australia for a couple of years. China’s young generation impresses me more and more everyday.  They are driven and independent, they know what they want and their freedom reflect on their outfits.
