ENGLISH | ITALIANO Which girl did not wish to become a ballerina? Well, except me obviously. In recent years ballerina flats have been overshadowed by loafers and trainers but for the Spring/Summer collection Miu Miu proposed ballerina flats with a punk twist that make them unique.

TRENDS | Frayed Denim

ENGLISH | ITALIANO Looking for the perfect pair of jeans is a common need for every girl who loves fashion and the choice of the right pair of jeans  is obviously based on the latest trend instead of “wearing what fits me better”.Everyone knows that 90’s style is having a huge come back and skinny jeans have been overtaken by high waist jeans with straight legs. The newest obsession on this matter was inspired by frayed and shredded vintage jeans and several brands, such as Re/Done and Vetements, took old Levi’s and reworked them even changing their fitting.  Zara & co. has started copying right away this trend but you can forget the same attention for details and the reutilization policy used by luxury brands. Sometimes the outcome is quite pleasing as the Bershka number shown in the photos below that I bought recently. I paired these jeans with a Zara blouse and shoes by Mango, ispired to the well-known and editors favourite shoes by Maryam Nassir Zadeh, to create an outfit with vaguely boho. What do you think about this trend? Do you like it or you can’t stand …

Fall 2016 Menswear Collections – The army of Dries Van Noten

EN  |  IT uring the month long fashion week circus fashion insiders stroll between striking scenarious and extremely outrageous looks but rarely they get the chance to watch something similar to the Dries Van Noten fall 2016 fashion show. An incredible happening put so well together thanks to the alchemy between looks and location: Palais Garnier. The runway, set between the stage and backstage of the Operà, was framed by a creaky wooden floor and a magnificent chandelier. When the giant curtain was dropped, it revealed a group of models that resembled an army. Following the continuous between scenario and collection, coat an jackets, characterized by clean and austere shapes, were embossed with ranks and insignia inspired by XIX century military clothing as models came directly from the launch of the Operà with Napoleon III. The cohesion of the whole show linked it to one of the plays that takes place on the stage of the Operà and models stepped on the creaky slats just like dancers did more than a century ago.  

Spring Summer 2016Trends | New Romantics

EN|IT The parade of new romantics. Some of them just respect the usual parameters. There are a few that reinterpret the romantic allure mixing up with other influences. And there are some more that jokes with romanticism adding tons of levels on it but still maintaining that aura. ERDEM | The looks undeniably presented Victorian references, even more after hearing the concept behind the collection.  Erdem Morialoglu approach to design is having a storyline in mind in order to match the clothes to the women of his story. In this case the plot was about prairie madness. The quality of garments is so good that the comparison with Valentino has been brought on more than once. What I crave: even though those dresses are not street-style material, I would love to wear this dress for a special event. GUCCI | In less than a year Gucci has been completely transformed as a brand. The first women’s fashion show designed by Alessandro Michele was just the beginning of his idea of fashion. Models walked with clothes …

Resort 2016 Collections

Fashion has no rest. London Collections Men has just started on Friday but  even past weeks have been intense since Resort collections are no more the neglet sisters of Fashion Weeks and always more frequently designers surprise their audience with unusual locations. Even though lately I am spending all the time working I always keep some time to watch the latest shows, a part from the brand I work for,  and catch up with the latest trends. Therefore I tried to sum up some of the my favourite looks in the following collages. I especially appreciated the geometric shapes and the study of materials at Fendi, the nerd-y romanticism and retro vibe at Gucci, the polished workwear at Ports 1961, the incredibly chic asymmetric numbers at Victoria Beckham, the ballerina inspired dresses at Rochas. Il mondo della moda non si ferma mai. Venerdì è appena iniziato il London Collections Men ma anche le passate settimane sono state piuttosto intense con le collezioni della stagione Resort che ormai non è più la sorella negletta delle Fashion Week …

Mini Bags Euphoria

When it comes to spring bags, size does really matter. During the winter I alternate between large comfy bags  and sleek crossbodies, but this doesn’t happen with the hot weather. It seems to me as logical consequence that when I start to take off layer after layer the warm clothing, I need also to reduce the size of my bags. No more clumsy shopping bags – even though I do not particularly like them all year long- but tiny chic shoulder bags. Besides, to turn those mini bags into a statement they have to be colorful. And, even if I have recently started to fight my inner struggle to wear just white, black and denim and to dare wearing bright colours and prints – yeah, normcore lead me to the right opposite direction – then everyone else can do it. Since at the moment I just own several black or leather shoulder bags I unfortunately am still looking for my perfect colorful mini bag that isn’t worth like unicorn puppies. I collected a few moodboards on some beautiful unaffordable it bags that I am craving right …

About Glasses

When people talk about fashion and accessories they usually forget about some important items. One of them are glasses and, no matter if they are shades or optical ones, they can change your face features effortlessly. Even if on a daily basis I wear contact lenses for practicality, I always bring my glasses along with me so I can wear then through the day. I have a round face and gentle features and for this reason glasses suit me well, especially big and bold frames. But, there is a sad side on this story: designer eyewear is usually quite expensive so, if you are addicted to buying a several range of products, you can’t afford to change them as you would do for other accessories. Thence when the American brand Warby Parker contacted me talking about their new Spring Collection I jumped on the boat and caught the opportunity to talk about this brand created to give an alternative to high-priced eyewear but still maintaining a designer look. Despite its classical appearance, the eight new …
