FIRST GLIMPSE OF AUTUMN

FIRST GLIMPSE OF AUTUMN

t-shirt from Zara / vintage check shirt / slip-on sneakers from Vans  / vintage bag from Chanel

Clearly the glimpse of autumn is all in the leaves that makes this shots autumn-ish. Milano city is really still very hot, which is bad as we are already at the end of September and the need of shirts/ pulls / trench and leather jackets is becoming stronger and stronger. For now, the light t-shirt paired with black&white checked skirt with folds on the front are fine.

RELAXING IN EZE

RELAXING IN EZE

Polaroid in: dress from COS, sunglasses from Zara, artisan straw bag 

Got to spend a day in this hilltop village that gives you the best view on the Azure, that’s the coastline of course. As you can see I embraced the straw bag trend which did not affect me until a few months ago… now I own two of them, couldn’t resist. They are nice both during holidays and in the city, as it can give a twist to the basic jeans and shirt look ( what I go for the most when I am in the office, boring. )

OLD BUT GOOD

OLD BUT GOOD

Vintage kitten hills from Fendi 

Sometimes mom’s closets can hide some forgotten gems. It is the case of these cute pair of kitten baby heels from Fendi. What makes them interesting it’s definitely their geometrical lines and the little small beads that are sewed on the brand’s classic and recognizable brown pattern, giving them some fun and color for cool summer nights.

BRANDS I LOVE

BRANDS I LOVE

HVN

Morgan heart-print silk long dress / Josephine floral-print silk long dress / Maria cherry-print cotton-blend dress / Nora floral-print silk slip dress 

Dresses inspired by vintage closets. Luxurious fabrics. Different prints, motifs and colors. Ginghams, cherries and flowers. Those are the key elements that makes HVN the brand it is. HVN is all about Harley Viera Newton: it’s owner, creator and one of the coolest women around. She lets her designs talk for her and what she loves… the outcome it’s amazing.

 

KALEOS EYEHUNTERS

Dunnage 2 / Shawer 2 / Lund 2 / Everdeen 3 

Sunglasses have always been fundamental in my every-day looks, as they can be bold and eye-catching giving to the most simple white t-shirt and jeans combination a twist. Kaleos Eyehunters has definitely a huge selection of amazing eyewear that I would buy right away. thanks to the always present and well balanced mix of design, fashion and luxury.

RIXO LONDON

Iris Mini Wrap Dress / Georgia Midi Skirt With Slits /  Twiggy Cowl Neck Mini Dress / Mila Halter Neck Bikini Top + Bora High Waisted Bikini Bottom 

Founded in 2015 by two alumni of the London College of Fashion, it reflects their deep appreciation of all the things that are vintage. It’s a brand that wants to “ shoot for the stars and has no plans of falling short “, that I quote directly from the owners. Stars, constellations and planets are also the main subjects of the ” Cosmic Costellation” collection. Smooth and classic lines define all their pieces: from dresses, skirts to blouses and swimwear … they offer the ideal vibes for this year’s summer getaways.

DANSE LENTE 

Young brick / Mia blush red brown / Mini Jhonny white blush 

Danse Lente, which means Slow Dance in French, is a handbags and small leather London based brand. Their vision is highly modern; structured bags with clear and geometrical lines. They offer a wide range of styles and colors, but their soft clear color ( together with the reds ) are the ones that immediately got my attention. 

THE POLKA DOTS

THE POLKA DOTS

Blouse from Mango / Denim skirt from Monki / Bag from Mango / Sunglasses from Zara

After a long work week, having some time off lazely wandering through Milano is definitely something I need. Hot days means we can start to wear summerish looks combined with bare legs, like the one you can see in the pictures.

As said from Marc Jacobs ” There is never a wrong time for a polka dot “. He’s right, it is an evergreen that can never go wrong or become boring. It just gives you a retro vibe, like you’ve direclty come from the amazing 50’s. Micro or macro, colorful or mixed with different textures, designers usually go crazy. Look at Balenciaga or Blumarine with its polka dots and lace dresses, or even Carolina Herrera with teeny tiny white dots on amazing purple fabrics…and that’s just to name a few.  It can not even be considered as a trend, as it comes back every year in different shapes and forms but always about dots we are talking about. One of my faves, like in the blouse I wore, is polka dots in black & white. Mostly paired with denim in all different nuances.
