Colour of 2012 – Tangerine Tango

Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2012: PANTONE 17-1463 Tangerine Tango
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

Sharing a strong passion for how color can transform a face, mood or even an attitude, Pantone has partnered with Sephora, the leading beauty specialty retailer, to create an extraordinary collection that will change how consumers wear, feel and think about color. Launching in spring 2012, SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE™ delivers insightful color forecasting, timely trends and powerful seasonal product collections. To celebrate the launch, SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE proudly presents the first Color of the Year beauty collection.

“These products allow for on-trend, uninhibited expression, while being exceptionally wearable,” commented Gilbert Soliz, lead artist for Sephora PRO. “Whether she is looking to create a bold look featuring Tangerine Tango, or if demure trend expression is more her style, the collection allows for customized wearability.”

The limited edition collection features a variety of products including eye shadow, lipstick, lip gloss, nail polish and accessories, and will be available in Sephora Americas beginning March 2012.

Tango inspiración

Tango for me has always been a great inspiration, the dance, the music, the sensuality and of course the feets and shoes. It holds such powerful energies and the meeting between people. The way you can express yourself with your body. It is like painting with your feets and legs, the lines, the shapes and the moves.

When I lived in New York I took tango classes at different dance studios and my favorite was Sandra Cameron where my absolute favorite teacher was Mariana Galassi. Amazing dancer and teacher, such great inspiration. Therefor I post this film where she performs at a tango event in New York. Take a close look at her legs, the moves and how it is perfectly coordinated with her partner and the music. I love more the modern tango evolution both in the music and the dance and therefor I really love this performance by Mariana and Murat.
Lobra Loves it!!

Lovely Ulyana Sergeenko

One of the fashion photographers in Russia is Ulyana Sergeenko. This lovely lady mixed her Russian Heritage with 50s/60s style and Couture. You always see her on street shots from Fashion Weeks around the globe and she always looks amazing wherever she appears.

Her style it truly her own and to me she is a great inspiration. It is always important where you come from and to translate that into fashion in a modern way as Ulyana does it is so Lovely.
She is a true modern fashion icon of today!

Summertime Dreams


A Summer Dream

Long ago under sol’s hot rays
we did drift in a raft of dreams
far from worries of the day
on waves without seams
taking in the landscapes
quenching our thirst for fun
out in that widening space
embracing the glorious sun
where rocks meet the waves
and gulls circle and dart
it was what we craved
and kept in our heart
Doug Jones
