BEST SUMMER BY: NATALIA

REDMILK PRESENTS A SERIE OF BRIEF AND FUN Q&A ABOUT SUMMER. LEARN MORE ABOUT MODEL AND INFLUENCER NATALIA BONIFACCI’S VACATIONS, BORN IN ITALY AND ADOPTED BY LOS ANGELES

 

How will you spend your summer vacations and with whom?

At first it’s gonna be a family affair. I’ll spend some time at our place in Ortisei. It was my grandma’s village. I’ll be with my brothers, my parents, our dog, old friends, surrounded by the mountains where I grew up. One night Giorgio Moroder will be spinning in the little square of the village. He’s from Ortisei too: back to the roots! Then I’ll go visit my boyfriend’s family, also in the Italian Alps. I’ll escape to the sea at some point, but I’ll decide last minute. I’m not a big planner!

 

The piece of clothing that will surely be in your bag?

I’ve been obsessing over jumpsuits with a 70s vibe. I just got one by Fabric Hunted & Collected, it’s beyond. And then every Summer I have my favorite bathing suit: it’s a black one piece.

 

Your must-have beauty product is:

Lancôme’s Soleil Bronzer for the face with 50SPF. I use it all year long, even in the winter. And I carry a million lip balms on me at all times, I’m constantly buying them. My favorite right now is one by Nuxe.

 

Playlist of these holidays:

I went to the Musée de Montmatre et Jardins Renoir a few weeks ago in Paris. I found out about the love story between Erik Satie and Susanne Valadon. I have quite a soft spot for these stories. He composed a piano piece for her. It’s beautiful, a bit melancholic, I’ve been listening to it a lot. I’ve been getting more into his music, finding out that he inspired so many other artists from Brian Eno to Aphex Twin. So that’s the playlist: him or people influenced by him. I’m just discovering this pianist: his music is stunning!

 

Your summer food is:

I was in Mykonos about a month ago, since then I’m always craving Greek salads. They are so quick and easy to make. It’s the best summer food to enjoy with some bread and a glass of cold white wine!
