Postcards from Portofino







 



 




 


 



Feel like a bit of romantic romp around the beautiful fishing village of Portfino, wishing you were twenty again, then check out the mini film 'I found my love in Portofino' by famed fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. It's the sublime new Cruise Collection from Christian Dior and it's packed full of divine fashion, heavenly handbags and lovely holiday moments. I was there in my twenties with my best friends and it brings back fond memories of days when I didn't have a care in the world! The 'Lolita-esque' model floats around cafes and hotel rooms, swims, dances, laughs and twirls her way round Portfino in a haze of Dior.    





This video is the extended eight minute version but there's larger format versions and shorter versions on You Tube - I thought it was a lovely escape from everyday life and I love the music. I feel like packing a suitcase and my video camera and taking off for a holiday!

Oh to be young and whooping it up in Portofino. Still, I reckon at any age one could whoop it up good and proper in this beautiful place!

For me it was a post-college tour of Europe with my friends. We spent a week on a tiny island off the coast of Italy (next to Elba). Not nearly as glamorous...but this reminds me of walking around the fishing village.
