I confess, from the first episode of 'Making the cut' (the Fashion Contest television series created and presented by Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn for Prime Video), I cheered for Esther. The money prize it was one million dollars to invest into their brand and the winner may be able to publish their own fashion brand on Amazon. . The final took place on April 24th, Esther has reached the final but the winner was the talented Californian designer: Jonny Cota. The season finale of Making the Cut, leaves the last two designers to present a business pitch to the President of Amazon Fashion and showcase a final twelve to fourteen look collection. I think what Amazon Fashion and the judges wanted was some color,  people probably want more variety, and the all-black universe by Ester is her identity, but maybe it is also her limit. However, I loved her collections and especially the search for details in her clothes and accessories, the gold jewellery are amazing.
  Esther Perbandt was born and bred in Berlin, toughened up in Moscow and polished in Paris, and she perfectly mixes the style of these three metropolises in her collections. The creations by Esther Perbandt express a strong sense of personality, autonomy, intersectionality, and individuality. The exciting juxtaposition of uniforms and, at the same time, strong non-binary personalities. Her pieces are unique and full of character, captivating, deconstructed silhouettes combined with classical tailoring details. She metaphorically portrays rainbows in black by applying different materials, haptics, layers and shades. To her, black is colorful, it’s magical, elegant, and graceful. (Black supports retreat and distinction, it gathers light and keeps the heat.) Esther launched her eponymous brand 15 years ago. The brand is more than fashion – it is a part of the essence of the Berlin Lifestyle.
Next time I go to Berlin I absolutely have to visit her store in Almstadtstraße 3.

Almost twenty years ago a book by Dr. Nicholas Perricone came out that gave us advice on how to use cosmeceuticals to obtain younger and more elastic skin. In this book the doctor. Perricone focused mainly on the value of the DMAE. DMAE is naturally produced in the body. It’s also found in fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines, and anchovies the. American Journal of Clinical Dermatology found that a facial gel containing 3 percent DMAE was beneficial for reducing fine lines around the eyes and on the forehead when used for 16 weeks. The study also found it improved lip shape and fullness as well as the overall appearance of aging skin. A small studyTrusted Source done on humans and mice suggested DMAE may hydrate skin and improve skin appearance. DMAE protects the cell membrane, protecting it from free radicals and helping cells to expel waste and retain nutrients.At the basis of Dr. Perricone's products there is therefore this magical ingredient mixed with esters of vitamin C and alpha-lipoic acid. And after almost twenty years this recipe is still very valid carried out with other brand new research. That's why my routine is often based on its products like Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer, which I usually apply in the morning, this lightweight, superior moisturizer is loaded with powerful antioxidants and nourishing nutrients to help firm skin's appearance and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Perricone's Face Finishing Moisturizer is rich in texture and hydrates the skin, imparting a visibly radiant and smooth appearance. The unique formulation contains alpha lipoic acid, vitamin C ester, and DMAE to help decrease dryness associated with daily activities.Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer ( I usually apply for the night) for the best hyaluronic acid moisturizer, this cream is formulated with neuropeptides to visibly correct wrinkles, sagging and discoloration; DMAE to visibly lift saggy skin; and hyaluronic acid for essential hydration. I treat the eye area with the Cold Plasma line: Cold Plasma Plus eyes cream packed with powerhouse ingredients: copper tripeptides improve the appearance of firmness and elasticity, Vitamin C Ester reduces the look of dark spots and restores radiance, and Omegas 3, 6 and 9 promote smoother, more supple-looking skin. To celebrate the ten years of the Cold Plasma line I gave myself Cold Plasma Plus + Sub-D / Neck, This iconic treatment for the neck and jawline is better than ever before. I'm really excited to try this product.

70’s dresses in some ways reprised the 40s. The stylistic touchpoint that recalls the 1940s is the V-neck, the flared skirt with narrow waist and straight shoulders. I found a late 70's silk dress that could very well be mistaken for a 40s dress.

 Tavio, Ale e Mary devono intrufolarsi nel museo senza dare nell'occhio e portare a termine la propria missione, ma il varco è rimasto aperto troppo a lungo e il viaggio nella dimensione parallela si rivela pieno di insidie ma, alla fine, Mary ritornerà ad essere Maria Cristina di Borbone, ritratta da Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun nel 1790 circa. E' questo il cuore della storia “Non dimenticarti di me”, il fumetto di Lorenzo Ghetti ambientato nel Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte liberamente consultabile fino al 18 aprile 2020 sul sito

In questi giorni di chiusura forzata dei musei, il Mibact e la casa editrice Coconino Press-Fandango hanno deciso di rendere liberamente consultabili, ogni settimana una parte dei 51 albi dedicati ai musei e ai parchi archeologici del Paese e illustrati da alcuni dei migliori fumettisti italiani.
