Dripping in Daphne

With the recent weather shifting from sun dress hot to rain jacket down poor, everyone in the showroom has been discussing ways to stay busy indoors while still enjoying the outdoor elements. The MoMA of course has our answer! The Rain Room exhibit created by Random International located at the MoMA PS1, allows viewers to control the rain themselves by simply walking around the room.  Perfect for a scorching hot day in the New York sun! This new exhibit got us thinking, how else can we incorporate this months unexpected downpours into our summer wardrobe? Continue below to see how these recent rainy days are inspiring us to incorporate rain boots with my newest collection Daphne. Don’t be left out to dry this summer! Stay dripping in green-gold chains and gems!

xoxo,

Susanna

…and this is how they made history…

No more worlds to conquer…Alexander the great continued…

No more words to conquer…

 

 

Back again with more Alexander stories…

As I have mentioned earlier, Alexander the Great  was educated by one of the world’s greatest philosophers and polymaths – Aristotle.  According to the myths and legends, King Philip II and Queen Olympias of Macedon [ the famous parents] thought that no ordinary educator  would be good enough for their son Alexander, who could easily be led by reason but refused to submit to compulsion. Iliad  [ Homer’s epic poem describing the siege of Troy] was his favorite book and Achilles his favorite hero [more about that at a later post].

When Alexander was 16, Philip left him in charge of Macedon while he went away to campaign against the people of Byzantium. During this period, in the absence of Philip, the Thracians [eastern Macedon] rebelled and Alexander led an army against their larger city. He was victorious in this move and took over the city, renaming it Alexandria – after himself.

In 338 BC, Philip put Alexander in command of the cavalry at the Battle of Chaeronea [a battle between the forces  of Phillip II of Macedon and an alliance of the Greek city-states,  the principal cities of which were Athens and Thebes] and Alexander led the charge that broke [ this alliance] the Theban Sacret Band. This early bravery made  Philip so fond of his son that he liked nothing better than to hear his soldiers say than he [Philip] was the general but Alexander was the king.

Well, as it was eventually shown at a much grander scale, action and eternal  glory, rather than pleasure and wealth, were what Alexander wished to have above anything else.  Fame was his obsession. When he would  hear of Philip’s many conquests and their associated power and glory, Alexander would not be happy for his father’s success [according to the myths and legends.] Wealth, which eventually was going to become his in the form of his inheritance, was of no interest to him…instead he was sad that…” there would be no worlds for him to conquer.”…and therefore no glory. He was telling his closest friends that the way things were going…with his father conquering  everyone…nothing will be left for him to do once he became a king…well that was a very wrong calculation on behalf of Alexander…to the disappointment of the Persian Empire. The rest is history…which I will tell you about …

More about Alexander very soon … xoxoS
