The Ladybug is All About Eco-friendly Design: The Opening of Gloook in Como

The Ladybug Chronicles - Gloook 11

A few weeks ago I was invited to the opening of a very special concept store in Como. I already knew of the brand because it was already one of my favorite shops in town, but when I heard about a new concept store opening in the lovely historic via Vitani- I got all excited and curious to see what it was all about.

The brand I’m referring to is Gloook, the Italian brand of eco-friendly design that proposes a new way to decorate our homes in a very sustainable way: you can find objects and home-ware mostly created in paper, all handmade in Italy, with great attention to detail and creativity.

In addition to their displayed offerings, you can also choose to get a customized object or piece. Because Gloook works with Italian and international designers and architects at their disposal, they can make you happy with what you need to decorate your house- giving special attention to your environment. The keyword is recycling and creating with sustainable materials!

I love that more and more people are choosing a more natural lifestyle; moreover, I love that they don’t need to renounce creativity, functionality and innovation to achieve their personal perfection.

No need to tell you that I would have bought half of the shop. I already imagined many pieces in my house (you can see many of them my pictures here)!

New Eventi Como, which organized the opening, put on quite the block party on via Vitani. It felt very much like the LA scene complete with paparazzi.  And of course, I was just a few steps from Sofia Vintage, so I couldn’t help heading in… but I will tell you more about that next week!

For the occasion I wore Anymoore jacket, H&M faux leather skirt, ASOS blouse and my adored Marni wooden platform sandals (which almost caused an incident on the small stones of via Vitani… in other words, I nearly took a loss in the middle of the shop!). I accessorized the outfit with my vintage bag from Sofia Vintage, a lovely gift from Roberta for her store opening in September.
