'Ermione' balconette bra with 'Cassandra' brief in violet from the ‘Privata Beachwear’ line by the Italian brand 'Porzia T', SS2010.

In September 2008, fashion designer Paola Tessariol has founded the lingerie and accessories label on inspiration of William Shakespeare's 16th century character 'Porzia' from the play 'The Merchant of Venice'. Porzia T shows with a video the style of her lingerie line.

Shakespeare's Porzia expresses for Paola Tessariol a woman who unifies beauty, nobility, passion and pride. In 'The Merchant of Venice', Porzia appears dressed up as a male lawyer in front of the court, where (s)he delivers arguments by following the frame work of the law - regardless if the arguments are unjust - to save a man's life from another man who has shown no will to be merciful, but insisted on a legal and cruel judgement. (Video scene from the 2004 movie with Jeremy Irons and Al Pacino; Lynn Collins plays Porzia.) William Shakespeare represents with the character 'Porzia' women who are taking future in their own hands.

Sunglasses 'BAL 0047' with light metallic frame in blue by Balenciaga, SS2010. It is advised to wear the shades on the beach or at a party in the evening.

The shop 'Karin Kasaj' has sent the advice to wear the t-shirt under a sweater for the sportive look, or to combine it with a blazer for a more classical style.

The website of 'Rich & Royal' is nice. It opens with a fullscreen making-of video for the women's and men's collections; 'Rich & Royal' names them 'Queens Collection' and the 'Kings Collection'. The denim collection is exclusively presented with moving pictures showing a man and a woman up to the middle of the body in their jeans. They are walking into and out of the picture in a living room where luggage stands; a man's black hat becomes an interactive utensil.
