Carnet de Soleil







Nina Koltchiskaia, Artist.

Her most simple pleasures in life are: Watching silent sunsets and having a good coffee.

Her favourite summer escape: Greece or Italy by the sea.

She is her happiest self in the morning.

A motto or quote she lives by: More feelings and more dreams!

Her best beach holiday: Italian creeks. She is not fond of sand beaches, but prefers rocks and pebbles.

5 items that she always has in her beach bag: A notebook to draw in with colour pencils, a poetry book, her photo camera, sunglasses, a peach!

How she styles her Sébastien: with a light silk caftan or a summer flower wrapped skirt.

Her favourite sunset: On Amorgos Island, Greece, where the giant pink sun dives into the water. And the fire sunset of the Joshua Tree desert, USA, with nothing around but roadrunners and butterflies.

What or who inspires her: The people she is surrounded by and that she loves. Flowers and the songs nature creates, when you listen to it carefully. The colours of everything.

Her must-have beach read: ‘So the Wind Won’t Blow It All Away’, by Richard Brautigan

Travel souvenirs she cherishes most: The ever-changing sky colours of the Death Valley, the gold sunsets of San Francisco, the blue songs of the Russian forests and country fields, and the pink winds of Essaouira, Morocco.

What she's wearing: Zoé maillot in lavender, here
