Celebrity Style / Janelle Monáe

09.06.2016


A pop, rock, soul, funk, indie pop, hip hop artist, Janelle Monáe is in the top list of today's most stylish American celebrities, according to InStyle Magazine. Her bright personality, lively energy and genuine sincerity brought her 6 Grammy nominations. As they look at Janelle, music critics love to talk about how the roots of David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Judy Garland, James Brown, Andre 3000 and Steve Jobbs in the minds of the younger generation have sprung forth in talented offshoots. Janelle Monáe herself likes to emphasize that stylistically, she is first of all a follower of two great women – Josephine Baker and Grace Jones. Choosing the classic black and white palette, Janelle stays true to it at all times. Even if some TV or newspaper reporters get the luck of seeing Janelle in the studio where she spends days on end in sweltering heat, under artificial lighting, they will find the artist dressed up in her signature style: the tux and shirt, perfectly combed hair with a quiff. When Janelle is asked why the tuxedo, she replies that she never thought whether it's men's fashion, or women's, she's comfortable in it, she looks good in it - and that's that. For a red-carpet occasion she completes her flawless black and white image with large Baroque jewelery. Also, of course, black and white. Janelle loves lush, whimsical, sophisticated shapes and large gems. Just like the ones in the Roberto Bravo Black magic and Q Collections.

Inspiration / Le Grand Blue World

08.06.2016


The clear blue in Asian and European cultural traditions is the color of purity, truth, dreams and hope. The blue vestments of the Madonna to the blue bird of happiness, and the blue flower are known as the symbols of romanticism. Rings, necklaces, bracelets with large blue gemstones worn by the modernist era women - the first suffragettes that frequented the "La Coupole" cafe in Paris and "Stray dog" in St. Petersburg. In their pursuit of the perfect blue color, jewelers did not limited themselves to the traditional sapphires and topazes, going farther out in search of new blue colors and shades. Thus topazes and tanzanites came into fashion.
Turning to the blue, Roberto Bravo begins from the seabed, plunging into the thick emerald waves of the southern seas and following the coral divers. The bright blue from the Roberto Bravo palette neighbours with a sparkling golden color, and there you have gold on blue, red, green, yellow. Under a blue beam of truth and love, a hundred flowers bloom on a magic meadow!
