on the curve

June 3, 2019

I love the carving in the drywall, by extraordinary sculptor, Valentine Schlegel. This how I imagine it might feel to be a pearl inside a shell. There are no hard edges on boats, for obvious reasons, and I wish more homes were built in the same way. It’s softer, kinder and more natural. Give this piece a skim on why people are drawn to curved architecture. “We prefer curves because they signal lack of threat, i.e. safety.” Like a pearl feels inside a shell.

I bet all you old school Birks wearers find the new colours and textures ridiculous. Your trusty, brown sandals have been to Peru and back, four times, you don’t need a pair in hologram silver. I get it. I like the originals, too. That’s until I saw this collaboration with the iconic Pellicano hotel. I can’t deny, I like it. The natural rafia is lovely, and so’s the Arizona red satin. They’re not for Machu Picchu, but the Argentario Coast, Perché no.
