LA FREGOLA SACRA.

Tutte noi abbiamo una zia Giuseppina o una nonna Angela che snocciolano rosari nascoste nell’armadio. Sembra impossibile, ma stiamo rivalutando l’opulenza delle fodere dei loro divani e i ricami delle loro tazzine da caffè; tutto quello che fino a tre anni fa, quando andavamo a trovarle, reputavamo agghiacciante. E invece, oggi, questo barocco siciliano ci induce in tentazione. Non tanto perché desideriamo assomigliare a quelle sante donne, più che altro perché puntiamo a vestirci come madonne. Incorniciate dalla testa ai piedi da volute architettoniche e ondate di velluti broccati; ramages dorati su ogni angolo di stoffa; fregi, lamè e perline sugli accessori: pochette, orecchini, cerchietti e scarpe dall’aria bizantina. Poi, se è il caso di trasformare anche la casa in un presepe, parliamone!

Per le beate:

THE SACRED FREGOLA.

We all have an aunt Mary, a Granny Josephine, telling beads hidden in the closet. Though we hardly believe it, we are reconsidering their opulent sofa cover, their embroidered coffee sets, yeah…THAT coffee set we were almost scared of since no more than 3 years ago. Here what’s now, we are tempted nowadays from all this sicilian baroque. The reason behind is not even that we want to resemble the saintly ladies, but our style icon is the Virgin Mary. Framed head to toes with spiral and waves of brocade velvet; golden edgings all over, embellishments, metal flashes and beads on our accessories: clutch , earrings, hairbands and fancy shoes. Then, if it’s about turning our house into a creche… let’s look into it!

For the blessed:
