Love’s Garden

We spent our last evening in Sorrento exploring the lush grounds of the Parco dei Principi. The gardens are filled with exotic and rare plantings, some of which were placed here as early as the 19th century. Ponti deliberately left many of the historical architectural elements intact as well, exhibiting his deep appreciation for what has come before. Here you’ll find cobble stone walkways, a temple to Venus – and what would a garden be without a bridge dedicated to love as well! – In fact coming to this enchanted place gives one the feeling of falling madly in love – that very moment deliciously distilled – living, yet somehow perfectly suspended in time.

On our pre-dinner stroll (top), I’ve stopped to pose. I’m wearing a royal blue cotton sateen jacket by Gucci, Tom Ford shirt with french cuffs in pink and white plaid cotton, Seaman Schepps cuff links are silver pearls with pale blue sapphires, “blue jeans” blue leather belt with silver buckle by Hermes, pink silk pocket square by Charvet, white jeans by Uniglo, navy suede Gucci loafers, Cartier “Tank Divan” from Raj Tolaram and my fragrance is Creed Zest Mandarine Pamplemousse.

    As mentioned before I love royal blue. It’s my favorite color.
    Bought a similar royal blue cotton jacket this spring with MOP buttons. I wear it at least once a week for work with light grey pants or casual with white jeans and similar color driving shoes.

    The garden pics bring back memories. Makes me wanna jump on aplane and stay at the Parco again.

    Thanks for sharing your memories with your readers James.

    Hugs, Matt

    What a great picture of you looking so relaxed and tanned. I agree with Matt, royal blue is certainly a fab color. I wish I could say that I too had stayed at the Parco ! It’s coming in the future I’m sure. These italian posts are very beautiful and visually exciting. Keep ’em coming !
