DIMORA DELLA BALZE
Bought in September 2009, Dimora delle Balze is a nineteenth-century estate in which time doesn’t seem to have passed. The walls, the floors and the ceilings tell fascinating stories filled with a Mediterranean scent, eager to be listened to.
The estate has a big quadrangular courtyard which, on its left side, is overlooked by the rooms formerly destined to the farmer’s dwelling, to the storage, and to the stables. In the right wing, instead, an ancient gate leads to the manor-house.
The interior is composed of a large number of rooms, where there are authentic and suggestive Rinascimento frescoes, brought back to their original splendour. Last but not least, the Manor Garden, formerly enhanced by stone benches, today hosting the remains of the pre-existing classical columns and terraces, set up with armchairs and custom-made design objects.
Réalisation makes the anytime, anywhere, throw-it-in-your-bag, go-to wrap dresses and tops. Each piece is 100% silk and each print is 100% original.
The Cher – Daisy, The Stevie – Sunflower, The Bianca – Navy Star, The Bianca – Black
The Bianca is that little bit of magic that fits us all. We know that’s a really big statement but trust us. This shirt has been sent to every one of our girlfriends: the tall ones, the tiny ones, the ones with boobs and the ones without, and no matter who puts it on, it just works!
The Stevie is an update to our classic Bianca top. Same shape and tie with a bell sleeve. From Rave to Reggae, the Stevie top will make you wanna dance dance dance.
