A Subtle Charme

“A Subtle Charme” at Villa Althea – Relais de Charme / Mango

Located in the heart of the Langhe wine district and surrounded by lush vineyards planted with Dolcetto and Moscato, Villa Althea is a noble country residence dating back to the early 800 and property of the owner’s ancestors.

It is very special to me, too because despite being extremely dense, it is elegantly unique.

The interiors are elegant and adorned with classic-style furniture skilfully combined with an exotic one and precious fabrics by the bright colors. Each room shows great attention to detail, a passion for color and a personal eclecticism in style.

In some ways, I feel quite connected to ita s Malaika is the symbol of simplicity; putting a great deal of attention to details.

This shooting was specifically dedicated to the outfits as part of an ambience.

Each model was photographed in a separate room and to top it all; the final shooting was in the most iconic place of the Villa: the swimming pool of 60 square meters surrounded by large Art Nouveau windows that you can open in Summer and have an outdoor use of the pool.

Most of the pieces are hand-painted by artist Sarah Bowyer – www.sarahbowyer.eu dedicating this collection to Indonesia. As well as the paint on face.


New pieces coming in, double breasted coats in Wool and mixed Linen as well as embroidered Cotton mixed with vintage Batik.
Hand painted by artist Sarah Bowyer, to give each piece that sense of eclectic taste yet fully Made in Italy.
