    Elena from Codogno, a small town near Milan, is like this. She has a "real" job, a real passion (photography), weekends looking through antiques markets and a love for Sicily. You can’t call her an "influencer," what she really likes is to show her world.

    We used to say the girl next door. Now social media has blasted open doors on the lives of others – Elena Braghieri could be the "girl in the next post." Where next means "near." This blond-haired person with her rolled "r" and sweetness can see things filtered through her serene eyes. This is the secret of her success, credited by almost 90,000 Instagram followers.

    For 20 years, Pantone's Colour of the Year influenced many sectors, including home furnishings, industrial design, products such as packaging, graphics and fashion which uses the colour trend to create different palettes in the most immediate and creative way.But how is the colour of the year decided? The selection process is anything but trivial. A considered trend analysis is needed and the colour search takes about nine months. Every year, 20 colour experts from the Pantone Colour Institute search the world for new chromatic influences. They study fashion, all design areas, the entertainment industry, films under production, travelling art collections and new artists, popular travel destinations, new lifestyles and socio-economic conditions that are constantly changing. Inputs can come from recent technologies, materials, textures and effects that impact colour, including relevant social media platforms and upcoming sporting events that capture global attention

    Shaping ceramics is her passion (after Greta, her three-year-old girl). Creating is her life force. Her smile is contagious. Elena Salmistraro is a young artist and product designer, one of the most beloved on the Italian design scene. A true Milanese, with big communicative eyes, Elena studied at art school and dabbled in a thousand art courses. "My mother used to send me to the studio to paint instead of leaving me with the babysitter." The Politenico di Como Fashion Design degree and the Politecnico Bovisa Product Design degree forged her approach. Elena is (as Fornasetti) an artist fascinated by production lines. She loves natural materials, ceramics, paper, and wood. And nature. This mix became her trademark which is to create reproducible works of art that recall the animal kingdom, as Primates – a series of her beloved apes/masks developed by Bosa, a world leader in the production of luxury ceramics. With Bosa (and Walt Disney) Elena has just created a limited-edition Mickey Mouse (in leather and studs) to celebrate 90 years of the world's most famous mouse. Never forget your inner child.
