Life in Venice

Bonjour from Los Angeles! 
Spending some time in this amazing city before heading back to NY next week. 
I wanted to share with you these photos from what I would call a perfect day around Venice and Santa Monica beach. I hope you enjoy these moments as much as I did.

Casadei gladiators

These past couple of weeks I interpreted two very different sides of these beautiful Casadei Gladiator sandals. One was the "Spring in Paris" side of them, and the other one went more towards the "Safari look on a California trip"(from where I am writing now).  Either of those, this just means that we are officially in Spring,  and bright and sharp colored shoes like this will be the best companions of the season. 
Happy beginning of the Spring!



nights like oil paintings

This was one of those Paris nights where suddenly time stopped, and the city at midnight was again like an oil painting by Paul Cézanne. 
The perks of being in Paris on a calm, spring night.

Happy friday night!


my Cuore by Bvlgari

Since this February, the month of love, I started carrying with me the Bvlgari cuore necklace, and kept reinterpreting in some way the shape of true love.  From NYC to Milan and Paris, the little Cuore which is also the sign of Rome (where Bvlgari is based) traveled with me, celebrating l'amour from Valentine's day and until the busy Fashion Week season. 

Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did when when creating them.

new discoveries

I discovered Iris Cantabri, by designer Guillaume Michel a couple of weeks ago in Paris, and without hesitating went straight to meet him and his team at their studio in Paris to see a preview of their coming collection.
I wore this dress to the Dior show and snapped a photo thinking of a couture alien invading the Louvre in Paris. Fresh air.

Hope you are having a great weekend!


Galerie Véro-Dodat

A stroll down the Passage Véro-Dodat after visiting the Christian Louboutin presentation for the shoes of the next season, photos can't be shown, but let's say that it's so good that I need start planning my expenses taking Louboutin as a wish for next season. 

This vintage Yves Saint Laurent oversized blazer is one of my new parisian treasures. 
I paired it with an Acne dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Elena Ghisellini bag, Dior sunglasses and Wolford tights

Milan FW Series Vol. II

 Milano Series part II is here! 
The truth is that while this is a glimpse of some things that happen around the Fashion Week in Milan, with a couple of seasons of complete coverage I would have material and pictures for a whole book.... which I may do at least as a diary to remember the exciting adventures within the fashion industry.
Above here I am at the Missoni family house, as a special guest of a private dinner on the day of their fashion show. Wearing a complete look by Missoni SS15.

Just a quick post to share these shots taken outside the Elie Saab show last saturday. 
Tuileries is always on the best settings for photographers to capture the fashion week attendees outfits. 

Will be back with more from PFW and in the meantime follow my current updates via Instagram!
