[en]My friend Elisa, who was born and grew up in Liguria, knows every awesome and special place where you could want to take a picture around here. This time she brought us to a ruined castle above Borghetto Santo Spirito. Besides being a fascinating and “mysterious” place , it also offers a spectacular view thanks to its strategic location.

We decided to create an autumnal look, a bit out of the ordinary and clashing with the surrounding environment, as we did in this previous post. The hairpins are inspired by the latest Krizia catwalk and the suspender tights are a must from last spring (which I couldn’t find in Italy and had to buy recently from TopShop in Spain).

The choice may seem a bit awkward, but I wanted to “dare” and try to carry out some of the ideas that came to my mind while seeing the latest photo shoots on both fashion magazines and the Internet. I have to thank, as always, both Martino and Elisa, who is full of wonderful ideas, suggestions and initiatives.

I love them.[/en]

[it]La mia amica Elisa, essendo nata e cresciuta in Liguria, conosce i posti più imperdibili e particolari dove scattare foto. Questa volta ci ha portati in un castello abbandonato sopra Borghetto Santo Spirito. Oltre ad essere un luogo affascinante e “misterioso” grazie alla sua posizione strategica offre un panorama spettacolare.

Abbiamo deciso di creare un look autunnale, un po’ fuori dalle righe e in contrasto con l’ambiente, come avevamo già fatto in quest’altra occasione. Le forcine in vista sono ispirate all’ultima sfilata di Krizia e le suspender tights sono un must della primavera scorsa (che non avevo ancora trovato in Italia e mi sono procurata da TopShop in Spagna).

La scelta potrebbe sembrare azzardata, ma ho voluto “osare” e mettere in pratica alcune delle idee che mi sono venute osservando gli ultimi servizi fotografici sulle riviste e navigando su Internet. Per la realizzazione devo ringraziare, come sempre, Martino e la meravigliosa Elisa, piena di idee, spunti ed iniziative.

Li adoro.[/it]
