MARCHESA LUISA CASATI: THE MAD MUSE
In a world where everyone tries to look like everyone else, those who dare to stand out are always branded by society as the mad ones. It’s exactly this kind of people that we here at Bastet Noir celebrate the most, because their difference is inspiring to us. To be different than the rest is to know yourself truly and deeply and therefore never compromise, nor worry about how the world perceives you. You do you and at the end of the day it’s exactly that kind of difference that will set you apart and build your legacy, especially if you’re aiming to be a fashion muse.
One such mad muse, as they called her, was Marchesa Luisa Casati, who decades after her death has managed to somehow stay relevant and continue to inspire with her lunacy and uniqueness. Today we admire her madness and her ability to stay true to herslef. In a world where everyone tries so desperatly fit in, she wanted nothing more than to stand out.
