The Skirt Chronicles Vol. IV is available at LOREM (not Ipsum). Blocked on an Island Throughout May 2018, we fantasized about islands; we dreamed about traveling to Jamaica; we considered spending our holidays on an island in Greece. The summer passed yet none of us found ourselves in either Kingston or Anafi, for that matter.
In September 2018, the moment arrived when we finally took a boat from Napoli to spend a few days on Capri—excited to be together on a rock in the middle of the sea, eating, dancing, and swimming the night away. This extravagant dream took an unexpected turn when a storm
threatened our departure. We thought we would remain on said island.
It’s now March 2019 and we invite you to discover our imaginary island in these pages, an island filled with precious stones, pasticcerie, beautiful sounds, and good vibrations.
The Skirt Chronicles was founded by Sarah de Mavaleix, Sofia Nebiolo and Haydée Touitou as a collaborative platform with the ambition of creating a community which celebrates diverse cultures and generations. It is a publication founded by women which reflects a feminine voice yet does not exclude anyone from the conversation. Organized chronologically, the content is determined by the date of completion. Some liberty was taken, of course, to ensure the reader’s comfort while discovering The Skirt Chronicles. This collaborative platform is proud to be composed of talented individuals however young or old their souls might be, such as Natalie Cenci, Marie Déhé, Tim Elkaim, Gillian Garcia, Adrianna Glaviano, Marion Jolivet, Alexandra Khondji, Christopher Niquet, and Hugo Partouche.
