“Leafing through the pages of this issue of R35, you will find yourself in an enchanted place, where sun and silence reign. In the desert, time seems to stop, offering unexpected thrills of freedom. This feeling of essential authenticity is what we chose as background for our summer collection. For the clothes we created for the hottest months of the year, we once again chose fresh and natural fabrics, such as linen and cotton. And we played with colours and patterns, experimenting unseen combinations. The signature Rosso35 style, however, stays true to itself and its simplicity and elegance. In this issue, we will tell you about two women. One is Elena Dak, she knows the desert well: an anthropologist and writer, she lives in a state of travel. For work, she accompanies tourists on the less beaten tracks, exploring places where nomads live. The other is called Maryam, she is an entrepreneur: born and raised in Morocco, she was educated in London, where she created her own brand. We will tell you about her and her husband, Daren Bonar, who together created a Foundation dedicated to women in Morocco. The object of this support programme is to teach them to read, write and count, and get started
on a path of empowerment that is exquisitely feminine.
Once again, we are presenting the creations of a young illustrator, Enrica Mannari, who struck us with her ability to portray the fragility and strength of women through colour and irony. She has chosen to live by the sea and practice art full time – this, for her, is a precious therapy for the soul. And finally, a novelty: a short guide to discover the wonders of Marrakesh, a city that for centuries has conquered visitors from around the world thanks to its charm. And we are certain: it will conquer you too. We hope you enjoy”
