Braided Beauty

It’s been a while since we embraced braids, but this pretty updo is a sophisticated take on a classic, and simpler to achieve than you might think. We spotted fishtail braids on a number of catwalks for the coming season and can definitely see the done/undone appeal.

Keep tresses out of your face for a day at the beach, and when night falls, undo it all to release flowing beachy waves and throw a Lisa silk Kaftan over your bikini.

Low fuss summer glamour for day and night. What’s not to love? Get braiding, and click here to shop our range of easy breezy pieces for summer.

FotorCreated food event

It’s been a couple weeks since launching our Summer 2015 Collection and we thought that we should let you in on some of our event preparations…

We love to keep things organic and natural – working with silks and cotton fibers, local seamstresses and European mills. We believe in carrying this concept into every aspect of the studio… especially in our love for food!

This post is dedicated to our lovely friends who kept things fresh and tasty during our summer preview.

 

Our chef on the day was Charlene Grech… a great friend and even greater chef! It took days of long consideration to create a menu using as much fresh and local produce as possible. We take freshness very seriously, to the extent that Charlene personally hand picked all of the herbs and most of the yummy veggies from the fields of our local veggie farm :).

The menu included crostini with local broad beans, sugar snap peas, fresh mint and chive flowers, topped with salty parmesan shavings. Another of her tasty treats was a magical pistachio and red pepper salad with creamy feta cheese. And the freshest of all was a classic Gazpacho with sweet Maltese tomatoes, peppers and lots of fresh herbs, topped with local goats cheese.

Adding to this delicious feast were some nibbles, including a juicy beetroot and mint dip to go with the sponsored sunset refreshments, perfect for summer.

Phillipe Martinet Fine Wines provided us with a summery Miraval Rose and Sorelle Bronca Prosecco. The Miraval, a blush pink Rose wine (which matched perfectly with our summer colours), is an Organic wine created by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, in collaboration with Chateau Beaucastel.

Unveiling our latest creations for the first time was a beautiful experience that was only amplified by the delicious flavours of local, organic food and carefully selected drinks, which turned out to be the perfect accompaniment to our new collection.

COLOUR SPLASH

 

It’s no secret that we’re in love with colour here at Carla Grima Atelier and we’re currently feeling inspired by these beautiful forms in richly-hued inks by Paris based artist Claire Chesnier.
Born in 1986 in Clermont-Ferrand, Chesnier’s works explore the concept of frame and of compositional balance in glowing, mirror-like abstraction. Presenting her large paper based works without frames, this series has an organic, multi-layered depth and a shimmering intensity that can’t fail to pull you in…

Seaside Set up

One of our main focuses this Summer has been on the opening and managing of our new boutique located at Baia Beach Club. The boutique, containing a selection of items from this Summer’s ‘Perfume’ collection, works as a place for potential customers to try on the samples before making a purchase, to look through the whole collection in the lookbook, and to discover a bit more about the brand, before potentially placing an order.

Baia Beach Club provides the perfect setting and environment for our boutique. Not only does the tranquil, laid-back yet luxurious ambience of the place reflect the values of our brand and its slogan, ‘Nature’s Luxury’, but it also attracts the type of customer that we aim for and has been essential in developing some communication and interaction between the customer and the brand, in the appropriate setting.
