CURATED CONTRASTERS is a brand new style experience created by Magali Alcaide.- launched yesterday

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I had the great pleasure to meet the beautiful and charming founder of Curated Contrasters, Magali Alcaide, earlier this year through a mutual friend of ours, her partner,  the artist  Stephan  Breuer of Flying Concepts, Magali has been working on this project for years and it is in collaboration with Vanity Fair. On a personal note, I was very happy to see the interview with ASVOFF 7's Master of Ceremonies, Caroline de Maigret

This experience is an immersive trip into the most charismatic style makers' universe.

What influences, inspires and moves them is the true path to knowing these personalities in a better, deeper way, and, most importantly, to enrich ourselves by having access to such a valuable treasure of references, endless source of inspiration.

The personalities selected are personal friends, generous encounters or just inspiring. With all of them there has been a deep research of information from past interviews, social media or archive material.

CURATED CONTRASTERS is a new way to discover, through a discerning selection, art, music, books, movies, fashion, beauty products, interiors, brands, travel destinations, hotels, restaurants, inspirations…

Every two weeks a new profile will open.  

New infos are added everyday, follow the CC blog for the latest posts.
