Here, we have collected a selection of our favourite quotes from fashion’s Grand Dame and teamed them with some of the most beautiful images of Chanel during her lifetime.
A jump in yoga In Milan all the news and the power of tradition from 14 to 16/10, on the occasion of YogaFestival
“Be the chance“. Milan hosts all the innovations and the strength of tradition during the YogaFestival, from the 14th to the 16th of October
“Be the change”, says the slogan of the 6th edition of the YogaFestival (www.yogafestival.it) which kicks off today in Milan.
An invitation that, despite being brief, sums up an entire philosophy and compresses the illuminating Mahatma Gandhi quote: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
What sentence could be better in a historic moment full of revolutions (more or less painless) and it also seizes the moment.
So go on and discover fully this event, where nutrition, ayurveda, and meditation will be discussed, among everything else that can help regain harmony.
The event has specific seminars scheduled for those that are already practical in the practice, but there will also be appointments dedicated to absolute beginners and other meetings (more than 100 in three days, completely free) thought out for everyone.
There are many novelties since last year’s edition.
There is, for example, the Suryabhody, a combination of Yoga and Yi Quan to re-establish the balance of the body and energy; theAcroyoga, which includes a thai massage and acrobotics; and an itinerary Anusara, a formula developed in Los Angeles and calledGuerrilla Yoga.
For those that love a more dynamic style, to do with mantras and music, they can experience it with the British Stewart Gilchrist, who is back by popular demand to teach Javamukti Yoga.
For those looking instead for the wellness of meditation, Mario Thanavaro will be at hand. He’s a lay Buddhist monk that takes people in a journey to discover the truth in everyday things. And there will also be Siddho Marchesi, expert in the Osho technique for the development of consciousness.
The practical seminars will be twenty-four in all (they last about two hours each) with the best teachers, to find orientation in the wide range of traditions and discover what style is the most suiting for us. The Ashtanga or Hatha? The Kundalini or the Iyengar?
The Ratna or the Pranayama? To learn about the schools and centers there will be fifty shorts seminars of 45 minutes each. And in the section “Yoga primi passi” (“Yoga first steps”), Antonio Nuzzo invites all people that wish to start the ritual of confronting themselves with others without fear and clearing up with efficiency all doubts.
And if the research for balance also comes through nutrition, why not stop at the yoga cooking lab, the Laboratorio di Cucina Yogica and at the Spazio Vegan?
And perhaps also stop by the Holistic and Ayurvedic Space and take a look at those therapies that are committed to natural health and wellness, like kinesiology, shiatsu, cryotherapy and the reiki?
Unusual, lastly, the meditation with guitar by musiscian Gabor Lesko – a worthy alternative to the Saturday night disco fever – and the introduction to Tantsu, a technique of therapeutic massage invented by the creator of the Watsu, Harold Dull. Something to try out, for a completely relaxing weekend.
Halotherapy: the new white gold salt Vaporized in the air is good for your health and skin. And spas conform.
When you use salt to season food, it’s true that it makes you put on weight and increases your blood pressure, but when you use it “externally”, it really provides health benefits. Just take a deep breath by the coast and you’ll notice that immediately.
The benefits of this precious element, which was known in antiquity as “white gold”, have been known about since the time of Marco Polo.
Halotherapy (from halo, which means salt in Ancient Greek) recreates the microclimates you find in salty areas or natural rock salt mines with artificial salt rooms where you can spend time relaxing.
A special aerosol micronises the salt particles. These then penetrate the respiratory passages and improve all types of disorder, from rhinitis to allergies and asthma.
The therapy also alleviates fatigue by improving the blood circulation and has a draining, decongesting and anti-bacterial action on the skin, especially for sufferers of psoriasis and dermatitis.
It’s for this reason that spa are introducing sale rooms as an exclusive new extra.
The Casta Diva Resort on Lake Como has a relaxation area that uses rock sale extracted eight hundred metres above sea-level, while theRomeo Hotel in Naples opened this summer has a deluxe, 1,000 square metre area called the “La Dogana del Sale”.
The Hotel Spinale in Madonna di Campiglio exploits the benefits of different types of salt, from black Hawaiian salt to the pink Australian or Himalayan version. The salt room in the Grand Hotel Terme in Montegrotto (Padua), to be opened at the start of next year, is part of a thermal wellness package that includes Kneipp treatment and access to connecting pools (inside and outside) as well as the warm humid “Thermae Mediterraneo” sauna.
There are also around twenty salt therapy centres in Italy’s cities, including the Halosal in Milan and the Salbea in Rome.
But how does halotherapy work? “You spend around 40-45 minutes in a environment with a humidity level around 45 to 55 percent and a temperature between 18 and 24 degrees centigrade,” explains Sabrina Tassari, the head of Halosal, Milan’s first sale therapy room, which was opened a couple of years ago.
“This period is equivalent to spending three days by the sea. It’s very effective for children as well, who often suffer from respiratory problems.”
Winter Magic. Vogue Gioiello December 2011. Diamonds and pearls offer the most luminous reflections for magical fairy tales
The enchantment of a snowy forest blanketed in white, muffling noises and making all silent.
This is a winter fairy tale made up of fairies and elves, bringing back that kingdom of a snow queen where ice crystals are transformed into sparkling diamond
The focus is on smiling matryoshka dolls bejeweled like czarinas to tell ancient tales.
Tiaras, necklaces, earrings and brooches where the white of pearls and sparkle of diamonds dominate.
The triumph of “non color.” Clear crystals, chalcedony and quartz worn in large quantities all over the body. Smaller stones wound several times around the neck, hands, feet and arms. Then there are oversized stones set in rings with thin pink-gold bands or anchored from bronze-plated chains to give shape to light organza dresses or clouds of fur.
Offerings from Pomellato, Chantecler, Oro Incenso e Mirra, Lalique and Mimì. These are the perfect jewels for taking on the chilly atmospheres full of dewy leaves, with that rarefied air that characterizes walks in the forest in the early winter.
Secret wishes, pastel colors, strong emotions: fantasy and reality as they come together perfectly in a child’s bedroom full of flowers and wishes.
In this play on on fairy tales and the everyday, nature plays an important role as an inspiration. Its preferred symbols are gentle butterflies, dragonflies, corollas and flower petals. And thus the ornament ideal, the jewelry piece, becomes an integral part in making fashion choices.
A garland of delicate violets or passionate orchids in bright enamels, multi-colored butterflies and dragonflies to be worn in the hair, bluebells and frogs used to decorate a fanciful ankle boot, animal-print rings and bracelets in pavé or flowering necklaces. It’s a romantic feeling.
Gorgeous leather Skull cuffs.

Vogue Italia June issue will be in newsstand today (Milan only) and worldwide in the next days
She is an international fashion icon, an eccentric figure who loves figurative arts and is fascinated by the legend of King Arthur’s knights and their metallic armor. He is an award-winning English jewelry designerwho has been celebrated widely for the ‘dark romantic’ feel of his chic jewels, which Sotheby’s has called ‘antiques of the future’. She is Daphne Guinness. He is Shaun Leane. This extraordinary creative duo worked together over five years to create a glove in white gold and diamonds that brings to mind knightly armor.
It was launched this past June and is calledContra Mundum – or Against the World. It can be worn as an evening glove (it was modeled perfectly to Daphne Guinness’s arm and hands) and has two parts: one that goes over the hand and the other that dresses the arm. It has been decorated with a flight of birds in white diamonds, and is entirely handmade, weighting over 1,000 grams in gold and 5,000 white diamonds.
A cuff protects the back of the hand and can be worn separately as a sort of ‘day glove’ or with the decorated arm part for a formal evening event. Shaun Leane has called this one-of-a-kind partnership «a labour of love».
