Not Celebrating Birthday Wishlist #3: House like a movie theatre

As you may know, The Fashion Commentator hosts the countdown for the non-celebration of my birthday until the 10th of August, and day by day I’m taking you in a journey through a long wishlist of dream-gifts, that now is starring the world of high technology and design thanks to the Panasonic DX800, the latest TV screen launched by the renowned Japanese brand.

Who follows me on social networks already knows how much I love those documentary movies that take you into the behind the scenes of major fashion houses, such as “Dior & I” by Frédéric Tcheng, dedicated to the debut of Raf Simons in the guise of neo (and now former) creative director at Christian Dior; or those movies that reconstruct the intimate path of contemporary characters, such as “Life through a Lens” based on the life of great photographer Annie Leibovitz.

But, at the same time, I hate watching these so intense stories on the computer screen, or worse, in a crowded cinema between people who comment and laugh loudly while munching fried chips.

So I said to myself, why not recreate a movie theatre in my house adding to the wishlist one of the latest hi-tech TV with super wide-screen in high definition?

Not Celebrating Birthday Wishlist #2: Houses

Take your seats, relax while sipping a cool drink, and start reading the second post dedicated to my “Not Celebrating Birthday Wishlist”: the new daily appointment that will accompany us until August 10th, actually the date of my birthday that I don’t like to celebrate. Let’s see if through this imaginary journey I’ll change my mind on my 29 years’ party.

Yesterday we got hold of some iconic Gucci by Tom Ford garments, today we continue with another of my obsessions: HOUSES.

Not Celebrating Birthday Wishlist #1: it’s a Gucci Affaire!

Summer usually means vacation, leisure and idleness, although we know very well that most of us (especially freelancers) will work, maybe even more than the rest of the year.
However, despite this sad reality, when I think about summer I always remember the sea of Southern Italy and my childhood passed between the Amalfi Coast and Cilento, realizing soon after that on August 10th it’s my birthday.
You could say: – Aren’t you happy about that? It’s so close now!
I would reply: – Of course not!
