A fabulous pattern mix:

White on a rich green background

Here I really like the beautiful contrast and the fresh relax given by this nice vegetation + candid fabric.
Like the chains creating nice lines across Marzia's forehead, bust and wrist.

Very nice detail on his shirt. And I always like the rolled sleeves.
Very beautiful pose and attitude

Slim + Relaxed = Impressive

I have been watching this man's style for a whole week while in Florece. Not to talk about his great face and presence.
Once again, I'd file this pic under the category "marine".
The cut of his jacket isjust perfect, his rolled kaki pants and flag trainers just adorably cool.

We met Filippo at the Undercover show @Giardini di Boboli. He captured me because of this incredible mix of tie&dye layered on these lace looking sleeves covering his arms.

Wonderful Angelo

Angelo Flaccevento is a marvellous fashion writer that I personally follow and admire a lot.
He wears bow ties with a beautiful fresh attitude and elegance as nobody else I know.

Color block

After a lot of neutral colors let's add something bright and vivid.
Here's my friend and Studio76 partner Tamu in the magnificent frame of the Boboli gardens in Florence, just a few minutes before the Undercover Men's wear show.

I have always loved the combination of these two colors...infact I have been a great fan of Richard Nicholl's SpringSummer collection, where he used and mixed them a lot.
Check also Tamu's juicy YSL shoes and the perfect touch she added with that patent grey.
Just beautiful!

More vintage taste at A.N.G.E.L.O.'s

A.N.G.E.L.O. opening in Florence

"A.N.G.E.L.O." is one of the most aknowledged and eminent voices in italian vintage panorama.
Owner Angelo Caroli was in Florence to honour the opening of a new shop.
A little jewelry box where we saw some stunning pieces by Pucci and many many treasures.
The Lady below here is one of Caroli's collaborator in Lugo - Ravenna - @ A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Palace, which is definitely worth a visit...
I am always very captured by her 50ies amazing looks, enriched with perfect accessories.

Princess Charming

This lady has got an unbelivable natural elegance and class.
And the most beautiful smile.
She looks radiant.

From marine to alpine

I think this man has got a very interesting face.
And style.
After a lot of typical marine inspired looks, my eyes just run onto this guy
and for some reason I like to associate his look to the super elegant traditional summer men's clothing of the Alps with a contemporary interpretation.
Maybe it is the hat,
or maybe the waistcoat...or the fabric of his trousers.
I find him very special and love the details.

More "Boat" style

Boat shoes are a real leit-motiv this season.
I like classic vintage ones in brown or blue but I have to say that this guy just
picked up an unexpected, colorful version that makes the difference
for this adorable marine look.

Pitti People - Charming

When I saw this gentleman entering the Fortezza I almost fell.
We were watching "White Squall" by Ridley Scott a few days before Pitti and I have to say that I have loved that movie.
Not just the plot but - oh my - the styling and the cast!
So, to go back to the subject, this young man reminded me of one of the most interesting, charming, naturally elegant characters of the movie, starred by Jeremy Sisto.

Pitti People - Soft wind

This skirt gived me a feeling of softness, tenderness, freshness. Slowly moving in the light breeze made me think about my childhood. I love the delicate fall of the cotton fabric.

Coat-ure Storm

Allegri is the famous outwear italian brand estabilished in the 1960s.
Today the company is living a "new lease on life"due to a complete restyling of his own collections.
After its long lasting collaborations with designers such as Maison Martin Margiela and Viktor&Rolf, the brand is now working on its own three collection that also include a limited, iconic one, signed by italian fashion raising star Francesco Scognamiglio.
The FW09 is very dramatic and luxurious.

Here are some of my favourite pieces and a backstage snapshot...we couldn't resist to use a grey magnificent, fluid cape for our surrealism inspired fashion story...
