I was really interested to know who were behind the colorful stairs. It turned out to be a group of passionate Lebanese designers and artists known as “Dihzahyners”. Their aim is to color the stairs around the city of Beirut to brighten the urban landscape with a “burst of polychromatic imagery”. Their creative initiative really triggered a positive reaction from people, especially the people of the town itself; they appreciated the initiative and even took part by suggesting favorable colors and designs. The idea brought joy to people passing by or waking up everyday to this view. It brightened and filled their life with colors and hope.
I had such an uplifting spirit when I woke up that I decided to put on the comfiest outfit. I grabbed my new boyfriend jeans which was decorated with ropes of pearls and I paired it with a blue frilly-sleeve top that had pearl detail and a blue organza hem with dot-embroidered trim finish from “Zayan the Label”. Then I accessorized the outfit with a bag and sneakers from Gucci’s new collection which were leather and studded with pearls and stones.
The credit for the revolution of Gucci goes to the creative designer Alessandro Michele. He updated the well-known logo by transforming it to be more of “an ode to joy, not something worn by the devil”; it is a renewal of the double G logo. Not only did he use new elements and got inspiration from natural beauty like the BEE logo, but he added a playful and natural approach; treating it in a lively manner. He transformed the designs of everyday looks, such as the sneakers, to something divine with all its appealing accessories and patches. I couldn’t resist not matching my outfit with two different pairs of fishnet socks with cute ribbons that I got from Calzedonia; when I stumbled upon them, I could not retain my enthusiasm because they were perfect – fishnets have come back into style now and they can be paired with almost any outfit.
