Gucci & Her Shoes

DSC03721

The creative director behind Gucci, Alessandro Michele, revives classics in the most refined, yet eccentric way that’s possible. To celebrate the season’s shoes that are on everybody’s lips, I’m happy to release the photos I took during my May vacations by the Polish sea-side. I thought that Ciekocinko Palace, with its splendour, 100-years old wallpapers originating from San Francisco and a respectable collection of historical books would perfectly match the elegance of Michele’s must-have shoes. The double G hardware, styled in a gold-toned, antique fashion, is set on the famous “jet-set” striped strap of these mid-heel loafers.  The devil is the detail – both heels are embellished with pearls and studs, and the back is designed to be worn with the heel folded down or up (a comfortable shoe-trick favoured by Italians). Don’t they look like an irreplaceable detail of the palace’ interior?

Ciekocinko Palace

Let the Easter retreat begin! And what’s better than a country escape? This time, I chose Ciekocinko Palace, which is located in the Northern part of Poland. It took ten years for the owner to make it alive and beautiful again – wallpapers come straightly from San Francisco, the chimney are original remains of the 20’s while all of the furniture come from prestigious British auction houses. The hotel contains two amazing restaurants, which use local products and ingredients. I tell you, it’s so good – my favourite breakfast dish is the Kashubiam speciality: apple pancakes with natural sour cream. For dinner, I am a slay to the delicious tatar. If you ever come to Poland, visit this place – you will truly feel like a king (or queen) of a palace.
