Cabinet of Curiosities is a new series from Really Well where we lift a lid on the wellness routines and favourite products of the people who inspire us.
Giorgia Baschirotto first caught our attention on Instagram for her considered curation and eye for emotive photography. Her two Tumblr accounts, Der Bilderatlas and Der Worteatlas, extend this aesthetic, merging apt cultural references with beautiful images. It makes sense that Baschirotto applies these passions to her role at Jil Sander, helping to pair the fashion brand with emerging photographers such as Olivier Kervern and more established names like Lina Scheynius and Chris Rhodes.
Read on as Baschirotto invites us inside her home and wellness routine.
Hi my name is… Giorgia.
But all my friends call me… Gio.
I live in… Milan, Italy.
For work I… contribute to the fashion world, as I’m in charge of the creation of digital content and strategy for the brand Jil Sander.
For fun I… photograph, research, and discuss philosophical themes with my friends in front of a glass of wine.
My wellness philosophy is… “If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.”
In my bathroom cabinet you’ll find… SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel serum, Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil, Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, Oribe and Aveda hair products, a selection of red lipsticks.
On my bedside table you’ll find… four books, a calming bed scent, Ayurvedic facial oils.
The first thing I do every morning is… put some music on, make tea, and cuddle my cat.
And at night before bed I… journal, text, read, and meditate.
The last book I read was… The Kingdom of Happiness by Jiddu Krishnamurti.
The last movie that moved me was… Three Colors: Blue (Trois Couleurs: Bleu) by Krzysztof Kieślowski.
My favourite meal to cook is… spaghetti with tomato sauce, basil, and mozzarella.
On the weekend I always… carve out some space for myself and the people I love.
Three wellness products I can’t live without are… the sea, sunsets, music.
I support my mind/body/spirit by… thinking we are on a journey of becoming that which we already are.
