Red Under The Rain | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

It has poured down for two months straight. Rain here in California is always an event and car accidents abound during rainy days. I don’t like rain in particular, it’s wet and cold but at least I appreciate the change of season that it brings. Rain cleans spider webs around plants, everything smells fresh, and vegetation in my garden grows lush.

Walking in the street during rainy days I see people dressed only in grey or black, curved into themselves, hidden in their hood, as to protect themselves from getting wet. The streets are gloomy, lonely and nobody enjoys this precious gift from the sky. I remember, when I lived in a different latitude, going out under the rain in colorful clothes was fun, we went out for shopping, work or meeting friends in a cafe’ where we could sit in the warmth, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and watch the rain falling on the cafe’ windows. We had clothes for rain and warm clothes for the winter, we wore gloves, hats, and scarves. Here in California, every day is a casual day. It is almost always sunny and mild, people don’t feel to dress for any occasion, thus when rarely the rain comes, they feel like fish out of the water.

I love to color my days, the greyer it gets, the more I burst into colors. This winter my new red Fedora has made me happy. It seems as if I bought everything to go with the red hat, no I did not, I build my wardrobe according to what I own already. It’s only a matter of remembering what is in the wardrobe and buy items which will combine well with the existent clothes.  To me, this is an art.

This is the month of red, Valentine red, I chose it because I am happy to love every day and to learn new nuances from love.

Fashion offers a lot more than just an identity to society. It doesn’t have to be expensive to sharpen the image of oneself and change the way one feels in the right clothes, not just something that covers the body. Ciao,
Valentina

    Valentina, good for you going against the black & grey rainy days! Love the red hat and accessories! I’m in the southern CA weather too. Lots of rainy February days, but with full sunshine today. However, bright colors are not a big feature in my wardrobe, I’m a basic black & white with hints of red hues! Happy Weekend! 📚🎶 Christine

      Hi Christine, I come from the warm climate of Southern Italy, where it rains often in the winter and thunderstorms in the summer. Rain it is part of me, just miss it here in Northern Cali. Colors are part of my expressions and rarely I wear black. Red is too powerful on its own, just to tone it down, I use black, grey and brown. Thanks for the visit. Make a great weekend.

        Agree! I’m a winter on the color palette so red, black, grey & white are my go to colors! Also shades of red, maroon & burgundy are favorites. In the 70s I lived in northern Italy (Lago di Como & Milano) for 5 1/2 years. Loved it! The people & culture, the best! Happy Sunday! 📚🎶Christine
