Saintest Easter in Spain

Another year, here’s the Saintest Easter, one of the most special dates of the iberian country. For some it’s just a synonym for resting and Benidorm, for others boredom and nothing to watch on TV. On the other hand, for the believers and the devoted Easter means tears, fainting, rain, wind, storm, floods, Antonio Banderas, pain, suffering, Virgins, candles, imagery and trumpets. If by any chance you’re somewhere in Spain and God has sent you to the South, to Andalusia, please do follow our advice and go to the streets to enjoy the show of chants and processions. As an example, watch this video that explains what happens in the country these days. ALEGRÍA (yeah, happiness, that’s what they say).

UNSEEN IZABEL, RELIGION IN VOGUE BRAZIL

One of our beloved Anna Dello Russo’s last works as a stylist (for Vogue Brazil) is full of nuns, crosses, female priests, saints and varied imagery. She uses the longest rosaries, baroque dresses and suits, little discretion and loads of humour. We suppose that the photographer of the shooting Giampaolo Sgura has the same aesthetic taste as our favourite stylist so we open the door for them to take some pics for our La Monda world.
