TRENDS | Frayed Denim

ENGLISH | ITALIANO La ricerca del jeans perfetto è una costante per qualsiasi donna amante della moda e ovviamente la propensione per un modello invece che un altro è sempre condizionata dalla moda del momento anziché sul più logico ragionamento  “indosso quello che mi sta meglio”. Non è una novità che negli ultimi anni sia tornato alla ribalta lo stile anni’90 e che gli skinny jeans siano stati surclassati dai pantaloni con vita altissima e una gamba dal taglio dritto. L’ultima moda in fatto di denim prende inspirazione dai jeans vintage usurati e sfilacciati e numerosi brand, da Re/Done a Vetements, hanno rimesso a nuovo dei vecchi Levi’s alterandone il fitting. I brand di fast fashion hanno replicato fin da subito questo trend in tutte le sue varianti anche se non aspettatevi la medesima cura dei dettagli o la politica di riuso di denim vintage come per i luxury brands. Talvolta i risultati sono più che convincenti come il jeans Bershka da me acquistato qualche tempo fa. Nelle foto seguenti ho provato ad abbinare questo jeans sfrangiato con altri capi fast fashion, come la blusa Zara e le scarpe Mango ispirate alle più celebri Maryam Nassir Zadeh, …

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 …

Come and See Milan | Villa Necchi Campiglio

If you think Milan is just shopping and piazza del Duomo, you are completely wrong! There are a lot of unknown places that make this city so complex. Villa Necchi Campiglio is part of the Milan’s Case Museo, built between 1932 and 1935 following the project of the architect Piero Portaluppi for the Necchi sisters, Nedda and Gigina, and Angelo Campiglio, Gigina’s husband. Necchi’s family were part of the Lombard middle class and they thought that this wooded area, quiet and near to the city centre, was perfecttobuilta modern villa. This villa is modern both for the architectural style,a mix of rationalism and art decò, and for the systems as the elevator and the heated swimming pool. Later, after World War II, the home furnishings change dramatically towards XVII century influence with the help of the architect Tommaso Buzzi. Milano non è solo shopping e piazza del Duomo, ma è fatta da tante altre realtà meno conosciute che contribuiscono alla creazione di questa città complessa. Villa Necchi Campiglio è una delle Case Museo di Milano e patrimonio del …

Stills | London

Despite my lack of blog posts, I am still alive guys. I spent these months between a hectic schedule at work and some time doing absolutely nothing with my family. Beside that, I managed to plan a sort of vacation in London. I attended a short course at Central Saint Martins and took the opportunity to visit the city once again. Unfortunately  I got through a few unlucky events  and I lost most of my photos aside from these stills. I promise I will update more frequently and regularly the blog, in fact there may be something ready yet! Nonostante l’assenza di aggiornamenti sono ancora viva, non preoccupatevi. Ho trascorso gli ultimi mesi tra una routine lavorativa frenetica e dei giorni di assoluto far nulla con la mia famiglia ma, oltre a questo sono riuscita ad organizzare un breve viaggio a Londra. La motivazione principale è stata quella di frequentare un corso alla Central Saint Martins ma ne ho approfittato per visitare la città ancora una volta. Sfortunatamente a causa di alcuni contrattempi ho perso la maggior parte delle foto …
