The annual exhibition will be organized by landscape and garden designer, Sarah Eberle in the Fresh Garden section. Also, Gucci creative director, Frida Giannini is thrilled to be apart of this preparing as Flora was the very first iconic design motif. The logo has since been used on accessories, bags, dresses, fragrances and scarves.

This will be a way to relive and reinvent the motif in a modern state for public interpretation. Artisanship and creativity from Gucci will be represented throughout the process linking art and fashion as a form of visual communication.

Gucci’s Flora Garden will include a debut of its Flora print Lady Lock bag. The limited edition piece will be released exclusively at the Sloane Street boutique for the duration of the show from 20 May to 24 May 2014.

This year, the official logo is inspiration with a design of three hands creating a facepalm with yellow and green to represent Brasil. Next, FIFA commissioned an official poster designed by Brasilian Creative Agency, Crama with an official slogan: “All in One Rhythm”.

In Portuguese: “Juntos num só ritmo”. Then the official song is “We Are One” by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte. For the mascot, tatu-balo emerged as an armadillo named Fuleco which is a portmanteau of futebol (football) and ecologica (ecology) raising up a football. And of course, Adidas has the privilege of providing the official Brazuca ball shown below.

I’m super excited to see what each country has to bring to the pitch. For record though, I will be supporting Brasil. Then as a way to reflect on past spectacular moments, The Telegraph has assembled instances which were significant during previous World Cups. Despite international news about the progress of the host cities’ stadiums and stability, I believe that Brasil will be able to pull off this event and shock/surprise the world. The biggest issues will be language and transportation but in these times, the national motto will will be applied: Ordem e progresso (order and progress). At the same time, this isn’t just a sport, it’s a way of life in Brasil.

Additionally, this World Cup is a chance for many people to view and immerse themselves into Brasilian culture. From beaches, food, music, dance to language and style.There are vital opportunities for business to prosper from international communication. Since Brasil is an emerging nation, there is a possibility that the sport event can boost the country’s infrastructure. For the latest updates, follow FIFA’s Twitter.

Art ~ Perfume

Art ~ Perfume

The magnificent Dutch duo, Viktor & Rolf used their craftsmanship on this perfume bottle, BonBon which is truly amazing. Its present candy scent wrapped into a bow assembles glamourous perfection. There is a true art to the design of the bottle. I am personally loving it. It’s a wonderful spring/summer item to get. Take a stroll to visit Saks Fifth Avenue which is exclusively selling the item at this time. I’m absolutely mesmerized.

Travel

Lately, I’ve been looking up at the sky and seeing planes wondering where they’re heading…I think it’s time for a vacation. I’m going to start planning from now. Since prices are bound to go up soon as there are multiple airport renovations taking place. Watch out for the rise in fares, especially in Europe and South America for this summer. Time to pick a destination!

I had the opportunity to meet my favorite female musician, lead vocalist and guitarist, Alison Mosshart of The Kills. We spoke for about ten minutes. What an honour, she was very down to earth and kind. One of those fortunate moments in life that I will always treasure. I hope everyone has a good experience when meeting someone they admire.

Film ~ Hateship Loveship

In this captivating drama, Hateship Loveship, a weird friendship develops over the course of digital pranks. The brilliant Kristen Wiig stars as Johanna, a shy and lost nanny hired to care for Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) and his granddaughter, Sabitha (Hailee Steinheld). Despite her extrovert personality, Sabitha holds within repressed emotion from past incidents molding a rebellious spirit. Then her father (Guy Pearce), a recovering dug addict with charming manner relocates to start a new path. The plot follows Sabitha’s game with her friend, (Sami Gayle) in which they create a pseudo-relationship between Johanna and her father with fake emails. In this day, digital communication is the most convenient way to operate but at someone else’s expense for your amusement. How cruel is that? It makes you wonder, how far will people go when they feel as if they have nothing to lose, especially involving technology. In association with IFC Films, the rated R film will be released tomorrow Friday 11 April 2014.
