"Capri by 19-69 is inspired by the stylish and iconic movie Le Mépris, which was shot in 1963 on the Isle of Capri. The settings include Villa Malaparte and the motion picture incorporates a scheme of red (tolerance, love), blue (coldness) and white (neutral) referring to the national flags of France and USA, evocative of the thematic elements of the narrative."
The beautiful terrain with olive groves and trees surrounding Villa Malaparte. The sun is shining from a clear blue sky. I can hear the ocean below me, I sense the afternoon breeze touching my skin. I take in the aromas of blossoming orange trees and mandarine leaves, feeling the warm rocks with my hands. The atmosphere is serene, almost biblical.
Using my binoculars I view him wearing a white linen suit, driving the small, red sports car, casually holding his cigarette. Bardot is wearing her blue hair band, the wind catching her blond mane.
In the distance I spot Christina, the yacht. I guess Onassis couldn’t take the heat. I see Jackie lounging on the sun deck wearing sunglasses and a Pucci kaftan, watching her friend diving into the cool water. A server comes out with a silver tray offering the ladies refreshing drinks. I imagine the clink of ice cubes against the crystal glasses. San Pellegrino with a slice of lemon, just how I like it.
The Fragrance Journey is influenced by the movie Le Mépris and the creator’s memoirs of Capri, Italy.
