Miradouro Vol. II
Every place and every stone tells a story. Sometimes hidden and subtle, sometimes powerful and unmistakable. "Tell me with flowers" is an ongoing project of make-up artist Antonia Rosa. Often flowers by the wayside go unnoticed, though they are mysterious and overflowing with hidden messages and can represent the inner us without words. The old city of Porto in the light of the blue hour provides the perfect backdrop for this story. In part two we are featuring stunning looks from Portuguese designers Carlos Gil and Alves Goncalves alongside Jacquemus, Balenciaga and Valentino.

The color yellow is invigorating – it stimulates our nerves, glands, and brain, making us more alert and energized. It’s a color that triggers activity and interaction.
The color of frivolity lives between red and white. Pink takes all the passion and energy of red and tempers it with the purity of white, leaving us with the color of tenderness and affection. – Kate Smith, color expert
Because of their distinctive shape and color Anthurium is also known as Painter’s Palette. It represents health, happiness, abundance and beauty.
