• Tell Your Friends

Here’s something you’d quickly learn about me if we spent time together in the summer: I have an irrational fear of moths (butterflies are no friends, either). To say it’s embarrassing is a huge understatement. I’m a grown woman! These are small bugs! And this summer I’m trying to come to terms with yet another winged creature that is making its every-17-year curtain call on the east coast, the cicada.

I’m using artwork like this cicada print to inoculate myself. It’s pretty, aesthetically speaking. I can get behind those lovely geometric wings. Art nouveau jewelry helps, too. Throw in a little steampunk and I almost like these critters.

  1. Con la Coppa America siamo quasi coetanei: il trofeo fu assegnato per la prima volta nel 1851, Louis Vuitton fondò la sua azienda a Parigi nel 1854. Oltre alla passione per la vela, sentiamo una sorta di responsabilità a garantire che il trofeo sportivo più antico del mondo resti fedele ai valori che lo hanno ispirato per tanto tempo. In concreto, significa anche tornare a gareggiare su barche meno costose, dove contino di più le persone rispetto ai budget e alla tecnologia.
