Taste of Florence’s Chianti Lovers Preview at Fortezza

CHIANTI LOVERS

file19A wine fair takes place annually every February in Florence to celebrate the completion of the 2016 production year in Chianti.

On Sunday, February 12, Chianti Lovers Anteprima (Preview) is back once again to invite wine lovers to be among the first to sample 2016 Chianti not yet released on the market.

Representatives from over 100 estates will pour 500 types of wine.  Due to the enormous success of the past two editions, this year’s event will be held at the Fortezza da Basso in order to guarantee the tasting of wines in a relaxing and pleasurable manner.

The fair offers a chance to familiarize with the quality and the characteristics of Chianti 2016 and the Chianti Riserva 2014 from file14the subzones of Chianti Rufina, Colli Fiorentini, Colli Aretini, Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane (the hills around Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Pisa) as well as six additional Tuscan denominations. Doors will be open for the public from 4 to 9 pm with €15 admission (accessibility at 9:30 am is limited to trade professionals and journalists).

Chianti Lovers Anteprima welcomes visitors who are passionate about wine but also those who wish to investigate the mysteries
involved and the excitement of evaluating them. It is a chance to experience the meanings of the intense ruby colors, or hints of fruit or spicy notes on the nose, or on the palate the nuances of wild berries, vanilla, chocolate, leather or tobacco with overall smooth tannins.

file24These expressions refer to just some of the unique aspects of Chianti and their terroir, a unique environmental context contributing to the variety of flavors that can be distinguished. Moving among the stands there is an atmosphere of enjoyment and of feeling special as producers who are eager to hear critiques of their wines greet guests.

The term “Preview” means that the Chianti wines are still very young but still are able to give an idea of their quality and mature characteristics. In the coming months the vintages will continue to develop fragrances and aromas to express the robust quintessence of the Sangiovese grape.

A new feature of this year’s Anteprima will be the presence of a number of diminutive red Ape three-wheelers, which have slipped down from the hills of Chianti. The farm vehicles will be buzzing through the streets and squares of central Florence starting on Tuesday from 9 am to 5 pm, offering tastings directly from wineries.

These Chianti carts will provide an opportunity to acquire discounts on the tickets for the Sunday event. Late afternoon on Friday, 10th February 10 there will be a special pre-dinner aperitif offered in one of the main piazzas in town.

PITTI91 GUEST DESIGNER

SIR PAUL SMITH LANCERA’ LA SUA NUOVA COLLEZIONE A-I 2017

pi_news_eventi_uomo_ps_caranPaul Smith ha scelto Pitti Immagine Uomo 91 (Firenze, 10 – 13 gennaio 2017) come palcoscenico per l’evento di lancio della sua collezione PS by Paul Smith Autunno-Inverno 2017.
Linea contemporary lanciata nel maggio 2016, PS by Paul Smith attinge allo stile iconico di Paul Smith, che si caratterizza per i colori e le stampe decisi, aggiungendo tessuti tecnici e performanti.
Dal lancio della collezione sono stati inaugurati 11 negozi PS by Paul Smith in tutto il mondo, tra cui Londra, Parigi, Hong Kong, Osaka e Seul, e nuove aperture sono in programma.
Paul Smith ha scelto Pitti Uomo 91 come occasione e contesto ideale per presentare la sua collezione, con una speciale fashion installation negli spazi della Dogana di Via Valfonda, e con la partecipazione al salone, alla Sala delle Colonne della Fortezza da Basso.
 “Sono lieto di lanciare la mia collezione PS by Paul Smith a gennaio in occasione di Pitti Uomo”, dice lo stilista. “Ho lavorato per la prima volta con Pitti Immagine nel 1993, e sono stato il primo stilista a sfilare all’interno di un luogo iconico come la Stazione Leopolda. Sono vent’anni che attendo di sfilare nuovamente a Firenze, e spero che sarà un evento sorprendente!
 Pitti Immagine Uomo 91 si terrà a Firenze dal 10 al 13 gennaio 2017. Nell’arco delle quattro giornate ospiterà un ricco programma di eventi speciali, più di un migliaio di espositori, pop up stores, sfilate e progetti digitali interattivi.

LUCIO VANOTTI PRESENTERA’ LA SUA COLLEZIONE FW17

schermata-2017-01-06-alle-05-01-19LUCIO VANOTTI_ Classe 1975, Lucio Vanotti porta avanti con la sua ricerca un ideale di moda razionale e purista. Tra i finalisti di “Who is on next? Uomo” 2012, fonda il brand Lucio Vanotti nel 2012. Selezionato da Giorgio Armani per sfilare nell’Armani Teatro, nel giugno 2016 sfila a Firenze in occasione dell’ultimo Pitti Uomo, tra i giudizi entusiastici della stampa internazionale. Riducendo ogni capo a forme essenziali, le sue collezioni disegnano geometrie assolute, che avvolgono il corpo con raffinata naturalezza. Lucio Vanotti presenterà la sua collezione FW17 alla Dogana.
Sono molto entusiasta dell’opportunità di presentare la mia prossima collezione di nuovo a Pitti Uomo”, dice Lucio Vanotti. “É la naturale conseguenza di una positiva esperienza passata. Rispetto alla precedente edizione voglio concentrarmi solo sull’uomo, rivisitando il concetto di formale e filtrando il bagaglio storico del classico attraverso la mia visione riduzionista, all’insegna di un’eleganza comoda. Da sempre la mia estetica è stata influenzata dal vestire maschile classico, e proprio questo sarà l’oggetto di partenza della prossima collezione.
PITTI ITALICS è un programma promosso da Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana con il contributo di Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico, Agenzia ICE e realizzato da Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery in occasione di Pitti Immagine Uomo n. 91.

Menswear Guest Designer di Pitti Uomo 91 è Tim Coppens.

tim-coppens-ua_mdt1lyÈ un grandissimo onore essere stato scelto come Menswear Guest Designer di Pitti Uomo 91. Sulle orme di molti grandi stilisti, sono entusiasta all’idea di far sfilare la mia collezione a Pitti Uomo, il palcoscenico internazionale più prestigioso, e non vedo l’ora di condividere questo momento eccezionale a gennaio!” Tim Coppens
Belga, Tim Coppens si è diplomato nella celebre Royal Academy of Fine Arts di Anversa. Ha lavorato con vari marchi sportswear e di lusso, prima di fondare la propria label a New York nel 2012. La sua prima collezione è stata subito ordinata da Barneys New York e da altri prestigiosi retailer internazionali. Fin dalla sua prima stagione, Tim Coppens ha ricevuto un forte sostegno e apprezzamento sia dagli addetti ai lavori che dalla stampa.

PALTÒ: Dai miti del cinema italiano alla nuova era del cappotto made in Italy

Paltò si propone sul mercato come la Fabbrica del Cappotto Made in Italy. Paltò si è ispirato da subito ai miti del cinema italiano ed internazionale, e non poteva essere che per l’icona indiscussa della nostra cinematografia la prima dedica in collezione: Marcello Mastroianni. Nel ventennio della sua scomparsa, a lui viene omaggiato “Marcello”, uno dei capi più rappresentativi dell’eleganza italiana senza tempo. Un cappotto a manica raglan, proposto in volumi ampi e vestibilità loose.
L’evoluzione del concetto di sartorialità che un tempo era garanzia di esclusività, si traduce in chiave contemporanea nella reinterpretazione dei classici: dai Galles proposti in filati chinè e aspetti tridimensionali, ai check declinati in chiave grafica su lane pettinate o in jacquard, fino all’effetto mohair. Un’attenzione particolare va ai nuovi uniti: bouclè rivisitati in superfici armaturate e coloriture melange, chevron tono su tono, panni militari e velluti lavati a coste.

ISETAN–TOKYO: UNA SPECIALE INIZIATIVA DEDICATA AI BRAND DI PITTI UOMO

Per celebrare Pitti Immagine Uomo a Tokyo, Isetan Shinjuku, Isetan Salone Man a Marunouchi e lo store Isetan presso l’aeroporto di Haneda, tra i più importanti department store al mondo, ospiteranno uno speciale progetto promozionale di moda maschile: i clienti avranno la possibilità di fare preordini, in esclusiva, di una selezione di marchi di Pitti Uomo. E in più saranno presentati gli eventi e i protagonisti del salone di Firenze.

LES BENJAMINS: IL SOFISTICATO URBANWEAR DEL BRAND TURCO DEBUTTA A PITTI UOMO 91

E’ un debutto a Pitti Uomo quello dello streetwear brand di stanza a Istanbul Les Benjamins che sceglie il salone per presentare il suo universo creativo menswear e il suo nuovo concept di retail.
Fondatore e direttore creativo di Les Benjamins, Bunyamin Aydin ha dato vita al collettivo creativo nel 2011, ben presto distinto all’interno della new wave creativa sulla scena turca e internazionale. Les Benjamins è nato per celebrare la diversità delle persone, della loro cultura, storia, religione e lingua che si riflette nella moda, con sfumature preziose e sofisticati accenti di stile.
Sincretismo tra oriente e occidente, le sue creazioni esplorano le nuove frontiere dell’urbanwear, combinazione di print innovativi – frutto delle migliori tecnologie digitali – e texture e materiali artigianali. Come ogni collettivo che si rispetti, anche il brand ha dato corso nel tempo a numerose collaborazioni che spaziano dal mondo dell’arte a quello della musica, hip-hop soprattutto, ottenendo riconoscimento e apprezzamento da celebrieties come Travis Scott, Asap Nast, Jaiden Smith, Cara Delevigne, Woodkid, Rita Ora o le top model Barbara Palvin e Jourdan Dunn.
Les Benjamins è presente worldwide: Beymen, Harvey Nichols & Brandroom in Turchia, Layers London, Saks Fifth Avenue New York & Los Angeles, La Rinascente Milano, Le Printemps Paris, Tsum Moscow e Shinsegae a Seoul.

JAPAN NEW WAVE: A TALK WITH SULVAM

schermata-2017-01-06-alle-04-43-35Vorrei semplicemente che chi indossa i miei capi possa essere felice”. In questa frase che racchiude un sentimento dal sapore quasi naif, se rapportato ai rigidi schemi del mondo della moda, sospesa in quell’eterno dualismo tra creatività e business, si svela tutta la passione e il talento di Teppei Fujita.
Classe 1984, il designer giapponese è l’anima del brand sulvam che sfilerà in occasione di Pitti Uomo 91, grazie a uno speciale accordo con la Japan Fashion Week Organization.

Diplomato al Bunka Fashion College, con alle spalle una lunga collaborazione presso la maison Yohji Yamamoto, Fujita dà vita a sulvam nel 2014, guadagnando presto il consenso degli addetti ai lavori internazionali, dai top retailer alla stampa: si aggiudica il Tokyo Fashion Award nel 2014, è uno dei vincitori di “Who is on Next? Dubai” nel 2015 e presenta le proprie collezioni in occasione della Paris Fashion Week. Il suo stile fa tesoro della lezione del grande maestro giapponese, sviluppando un tailoring reinterpretato in chiave fortemente contemporanea, con un focus su tessuti di grande qualità e silhouette innovative.

NEW YEAR NEW LIFE!

Posted on Updated on

7c86f2ebc9efe4efca44174e74693143

Sure, it would be great to stay in celebration mode forever, but eventually you have to hit the reset button on your life. Here, 10 easy ways to do it.

1. Be Radiant

If you buy only one new skin-care product during the long, dry winter months, make it a luminosity- enhancing serum, such as Kypris Beauty Elixir III Prismatic Array ($150). It’s chock-full of anti­oxidants like vitamin C, which brings tired, dull complexions into the light, and is gentle enough for those who have sensitive skin.

2. Boost Your Lashes

For an instant eye-brightener, reach for a tube of Maybelline New York The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara ($10). Its name is as long as its staying power but more important is its brush—a fan-shaped, short-bristled wonder—that ensures curled, are-they-real-or-not? lashes with every swipe.

3. Get Fuller Hair

Nutrafol ($88), a blend of marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E, is the buzziest hair-growth supplement around. Riawna Capri, who tends to the manes of some of Hollywood’s A-list (Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez), swears by it. “I have seen a huge difference with my clients after taking it for three months,” says Capri. “Their hair is so much thicker, especially around the hairline.”

4. Shop Wisely

Lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Clean Beauty is packed with advice on how to choose the right beauty products and how to eat better as well as clean-living tips like”Energy, enthusiasm, and glowing skin do take you pretty far, actually.” Amen to that.

5. Replace Your Lipstick

Red lip color will wake up your face in a flash. Our pick: Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Mineshaft ($26). This poppy shade is flattering on most skin tones, and it goes on like a dream, leaving behind rich, high-impact color that wears evenly and keeps lips soft all day long.

6. Find Your Zen

Get an Apple Watch for the holidays? Go launch its built-in Breathe app. “Wait,” you may be thinking, “I don’t need an app to tell me how to breathe.” And you would be right, but it does much more than that: It blocks out time for you to meditate, which studies have shown can significantly reduce stress and anxiety in just minutes. For non-Watch-havers, the Headspace app (from $6.24 per month) is a good option.

7. Whiten Your Smile

Already a devotee of Crest Whitestrips? The newest version, Crest Whitestrips With Light ($100), is souped-up thanks to the addition of blue-light technology, which works in conjunction with the strips you know and love to accelerate the whitening effect.

8. Exercise Anytime, Anywhere

You can get a serious workout with the Cody app (classes from $10), if you have access to a screen (yes, your phone counts). Big-time trainers (Ashley Galvin, Jacquelyn Umof, Dylan Werner) coach you through yoga, Pilates, HIIT, and barre classes streamed to you, on your schedule.

9. Repair Your Hair

Restore overworked strands to peak condition with b3 Demi Permanent Conditioner. This in- salon treatment combines the deep hydration of a mask with the rejuvenating qualities of a bond builder, leaving hair stronger and softer for up to 12 shampoos (from $45).

10. Self-Tan Smarter

Tan-Luxe takes the guesswork—and the smell—out of at-home tanning. Add a few drops of The Face ($50) or The Body ($60) to your moisturizer or body lotion of choice, and smooth evenly on your skin. In a few hours you’ll develop a natural, streak-free glow (without staining your sheets or clothing). Want deeper color? Use more drops. Simple.

BARBARA PALVIN SO PRETTY

Posted on Updated on

3c52da61f226196857df85021731c733

Wherever Barbara Palvin goes, there’s a little dust storm of controversy. Back when she was a 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, Selena Gomez fans blamed her for the singer’s breakup with Justin Bieber after Palvin was spotted with him at a Broadway show. Palvin has since been linked to One Direction’s Niall Horan; she’s been seen partying with Ed Sheeran; and, since the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, she’s been rumored to be dating Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton.

On the day I chatted with Palvin, who is at home in the countryside outside of Budapest, she laughed at her reputation as a man-eater—though the laughter was undercut by a clear note of annoyance. Days earlier, a British tabloid posted a picture of her sitting on a man’s lap at an event for the Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi. “That’s not Lewis Hamilton! Barbara Palvin gets cozy with mystery man,” the headline gasped.

“Normally, I don’t let it get to me,” she tells me. The “mystery man” was, in fact, her Italian agent, a dear friend. “I actually hang out with a lot of guys, and whenever I hang out with a famous guy, I’m instantly dating them. So I just laugh it off.” This time, though, Palvin said the comments crossed the line. “It was: ‘Of course she’s hitting on that guy. He’s probably old and rich.’ Oh bravo, Daily Mail !”

No, Palvin doesn’t need to date rich men to belong to the jet set. “It drives me a little crazy that people would think that.”

HARNESS THE POWER OF NATURAL DIURETICS

Posted on Updated on

tisana-690x461

The difference between feeling model-esque, not cinched, in your Balmain body-con dress may be just a few pounds—of water. “You can retain up to five pounds of extra fluid,” says Jeffrey Morrison, a physician and founder of the Morrison Center in New York, who suggests sipping water-eliminating teas like dandelion or fennel two or three times a day. (Try Traditional Medicinals Dandelion Leaf & Root Tea, $5.29 for 16 bags.) Other de-bloating elixirs: Ask your juice joint to press a celery-centric concoction, and take a 500-milligram parsley capsule twice a day.

Drink Two Glasses of Water Before Every Meal

“It sounds counterintuitive, but you need to drink water to lose water,” says Lauren Slayton, a nutritionist and founder of Foodtrainers in New York. Along with drinking a minimum of 64 ounces daily, Slayton recommends front-loading meals with two cups of H2O “for maximum appetite reduction; it’ll make you feel full and help you eat less.” Adds Vanessa Packer, a holistic nutritionist at Model­Fit in New York, “Avoid seltzer and sparkling water—they cause bloating.”

Get Eight Hours of Sleep

“When you get seven-and-a-half to eight hours of sleep, your body is more equipped to get rid of stress hormones, and your metabolism improves,” says Morrison. And taking a vitamin D3 supplement daily may help you sleep better and therefore improve weight loss too. One theory is that when D3 is low, hunger hormones increase, and when you’re not deficient in D, melatonin—the body’s natural sleep aid—works more effectively. Slayton suggests taking 2,000 IUs of D3 daily.

Avoid All Processed Foods

Which means not only skipping the obvious culprits (chips, cookies, candy) but also anything that is prepackaged (store-bought bread, pasta, cheese), and even canned tuna and almond milk, which may be packed with sodium and sugar, respectively. Opt for whole grain bread from a local bakery; it won’t be heavily processed, and avoid anything made with white flour (it has no nutritional value), says Morrison. Skip all dairy too, including Greek yogurt. Replacing all inflammatory foods (sugar, wheat, dairy) with whole foods and vegetables can produce rapid results, Morrison adds.

“Your Spinning class will burn calories, but it won’t give you the powerful after-burn effect of HIIT.”

Carve Out Your Belly

Strengthening your body’s natural corset muscles is a surefire way to get a flat belly naturally. Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson (who got Khloé Kardashian in rock-body shape) suggests doing this simple but powerful plank sequence every day: Get into a plank position (forearms on the floor, core engaged, legs straight) at just less than arm’s length from a wall. While keeping your core centered—don’t move side to side—alternate touching the wall with each hand as many times as possible in one minute. Repeat five times. The goal: Every round, tap the wall more times, says Peterson.

Ditch Alcohol Completely

Not. A. Sip. “One, it affects your sleep, and we know that in turn affects your metabolism and hunger cravings,” explains Slayton. “Two, it definitely causes you to retain extra fluid.” The third, and most damaging, reason: “You don’t burn any other fat or calories until your body rids itself of that 100-, 200-, or 300-calorie cocktail, so you’re putting yourself behind in terms of calorie-burning from the start,” she says.

Do 30 Minutes of HIIT Every Day

Your Spinning class will burn calories, but it won’t give you the powerful after-burn effect of high-intensity interval training. Oliver Lee, a trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp in New York, recommends this 30-minute circuit: For each exercise go as fast and as intensely as you can for 40 seconds, followed by 20 seconds of rest. Repeat the sequence six times. 1. Fast feet. 2. 180-degree squat jumps. 3. Squat to side kick (alternating legs). 4. Two push-ups into four mountain climbers. 5. Finish with shoulder-tap burpees: Go into a plank, touch each shoulder with the opposite hand four times, then jump up into the air.

MIAMI

Posted on

918a1c8285ad93b9993f96f56ccb87f9

Shining sun,  Art Deco houses and skies in ice cream pastel colours , palm tress and the beach, I am just returning from a 9 day journey to Miami and to a well needed winter break. I was there for work, but shooting under the sun didn’t feel as much like it. I hadn’t been before, it’s always a pleasure to discover a place for the first time, especially when having seen so much already. Miami was super exciting and fun and it feels like there is a lot more I could discover on my next visit.

Here you go with some impressions from South beach and the Standard Miami Spa hotel where I stayed for two nights after the job. I didn’t take fully advantage of the Spa offerings, I’m more of a pool girl, but the deco alone was so worth hanging out there.

NICE MUSIC INSPIRATION: 2016’s SUMMER JAMS

Posted on

2b784240220e56d9ab86f5d63f91b250

Summer is here so let’s update your playlist and your wardrobe.

Summer is a time for sun, fun, and general leisure. The best way to enhance the experience is by adding the right music. That’s why from June to August, radio stations, music sites, and social media designate the perfect summer songs and play them on repeat. Past songs of the summer have included Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Pharrell’s “Happy”.

A summer jam is not just any song. It is one that is usually released in the preceding spring, it’s upbeat, and it has a way of making everyone who listens to it feel instantly better. Perfect for road trips, barbecues, beach days, and festivals, a great summer song invites you to go out into the world, fall in love, or have an adventure. It sweeps you up and makes you want to dance like there’s no tomorrow.

The best time to listen to this music: when you want to get into a summertime mindset.

Here are 3 outfits inspired by the summer songs of 2016:

“Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake

I love this positive song about feeling good and expressing your happiness through your dance moves. Not only is this song ebullient and exciting, but the video shows off a variety of people bouncing, bopping, and boogieing to the lighthearted track. It’s fabulous and fun.

MTM5NTQ3Mjk1NDcyNDI4NTQ5

Recreate Justin’s outfit and embrace summer whites with a striped tank and twill shorts. Make the most of those long days with a cute watch. Slip on a pair of sneakers for all your dancing needs, then finish the look with a bit of sunshine and sun shaped earrings.

“This Is What You Came For” by Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna

Calvin Harris is a master at creating songs that inspire people to dance. His third collaboration with Rihanna is no exception; “This Is What You Came For” has all the elements of a summer anthem. The perfect mesh of Rihanna’s R&B and Calvin Harris’ electronic vibes, this effervescent song stays with you long after you hear it. (And that video?! Perfection.)

Ideal for festival season, days at the carnival, and all activities that start during the day and last well into the night, this look will ensure all eyes are on you. This metallic co-ord set pays homage to Rihanna’s oversized jumpsuit while keeping you cool. Enhance your tan with a glowy bronzer. Keep your hair out of your face with embellished pins. Complete the outfit with comfy sandals and a pretty wristlet.

“One Dance” by Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla

This song is EVERYWHERE and for good reason: It’s a true gem, and it’s from Drake’s new album “Views from the 6”. Reggae influences and a cool backing track make this the perfect track for chilling out after a long day of sun.

Whether you are hanging out around a bonfire or ambling down the boardwalk, this outfit embraces the light of summer for a vibrant look. During Drake’s performance, the lights bounce right off of him, so mirror that effect with a flowy iridescent tank. Black shorts keep the focus on the top. Beauty and function meet in a lipgloss with SPF 30 to protect your lips from the sun. Protect your eyes with cool rainbow sunnies. Trip the light fantastic with prism earrings and finish the outfit with cute, embellished flip-flops.

Have a great summer, guys!

FASHION TREND REPORT: PALM PRINTS

Posted on Updated on

9c96d56a5ff5713b2729d795f76ddd61

Designers took a cue from nature this season by incorporating breezy palm-tree prints into their collections.

If you’re feeling a little pained watching the summer fly by from your office window, might we suggest a little sartorial salve by way of cheerful palm-tree prints from the Spring 2014 runway shows? More Designers sent models walking down the runway decked out in this tropical motif.

We love palm-tree prints because they transport us to the summer sands and warm breezes of vacations past. Plus, they make dressing fun and playful. Palm-tree prints are also the perfect alternative for women who find traditional florals to be too feminine.
These tropical prints have also hit our favorite stores. Check out a few of the pieces on our wish lists below and scoop up one or two for yourself.

FAUSTO PUGLISI WITH PITTI ITALICS SPECIAL EVENT IS PRESENTING A PREVIEW OF HIS CAPSULES OF MEN’S FASHION

GALA EVENT ORGANISED BY LUISA VIA ROMA ON THE OCCASION OF HER FIRENZE4EVER, AN EVENT “ON WATER”

Pitti90 is approaching. Let’s take a look at the news of the Kermesse of Fortezza da Basso, trying to make predictions based on rumors and indiscretions of traders, exhibitors and journalists.

Speculating on the outcome of Pitti may be taken for granted, considering the increasing success, but there are variables difficult to estimate. The agenda rich of events, the selection of historical brands, and the attention paid to the emerging names and the electric and international atmosphere that makes Florence the most interesting centre of gravity of style and trends worldwide, if you follow the communications about this event, either as private or as professional operator, you will be able to understand a lot about its importance.

News, innovation, inspiration and more are expected from Pitti Immagine Uomo 90, a restless boiling magma from which many people take a cue. The precious experimentation of materials and fabrics is food for thought for designers’ new models and collections, as well as a throwback to the pure tailoring and an enhancement of our Made in Italy in its classic aspects, connotations of a style which always distinguishes the character of our Country.

A zoom on the best of “Fashion and Italian Design” (that highlights Italian new and young talents’ work) is realized in association with foreigner influences. Made in Italy and internationalization seem to be the trend.

We all know that Italian Fashion was born in Florence, but today, how can Florence exceed the dominance of Milan?

The Florentine Fashion Week, with Pitti Uomo, not only resists but it is strongly proactive, thanks to a fair hosting the best of men’s fashion offer of the world, that has several research brands and very high quality, and thanks also to a program of events, exhibitions, parades from emerging talents, successful designers and contemporary artists. This encourages the best fashion buyers of the world to come to Florence to observe new Season trends, to buy highly selected collections and to join events in one of the most beautiful and characteristic cities in the world. So it is the clever mix of high quality ingredients that builds up the Florentine successful recipe. Furthermore, the extraordinary architectural and aesthetic quality of the fairgrounds and the city is the reason why almost all the international buyers don’t miss it.

This exposition leads the world to Florence, that take advantage of a highly qualified and excellent quality business tourism flow that would be otherwise difficult to detect, and on this target, the city can improve the quality of the accommodation facilities and cultural opportunities. But not only. Italy is one of the most beloved destinations for tourists and its historic and architectural structure makes it a unique site to stage also the productive sectors, such as fashion. Therefore we hope for a continuous and strategic investment to attract the best traders and trend setters of the world in Florence.

LUISAVIAROMA

builds a bridge to the future on the Arno River.
The Bridge of Love is a conceptual installation conceived and designed by architect Claudio Nardi that symbolizes the will to provide hope to people in difficult situations. The project aims to raise public awareness for the refugee crisis and is a part of the World Refugee Day 2016 celebration event program.
Bianca Balti, guest at the charity gala dinner to inaugurate The Bridge of Love on June 13. Starting June 14, the outfit worn by the supermodel during the dinner will be available for purchase at LUISAVIAROMA.COM.
All proceeds from the gala dinner and sale of the outfit will be donated to The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). In particular, the ‘Lifeline Jordan’ project that provides direct economic assistance for families of Syrian refugees who have found asylum in Jordan.*
*Since the beginning of the war in Syria until now, 4.8 million people have left the country. Among those, more than 630,000 have sought refuge in Jordan. Through ‘Lifeline Jordan’, UNCHR sustains roughly 135,000 people, half of which are children, by providing each family with basic needs such as housing, food, medical care and education thanks to a contribution of approximately 1,500 euro a year. The availability of a minimum monthly income allows families to survive without spiraling into extreme poverty which could push them to consider risky decisions, such as crossing the Mediterranean.

BLACK SHOES

I’m not done covering Sydney fashion at least for this week (no worries, Milan Men’s and Couture Paris coming up soon).

With all the monochromatic looks one detail I noticed this time again, the shoes !  I haven’t seen that many black heels at once, especially the most simple version, an elegant heeled sandal with a simple strap that Gianvito Rossi and Givenchy seem to do best.

I love this type of simple heel, it will go with everything. The problem at least for me, my feet don’t look great in them, I’m yet to find the right strap placement for my toes, does this make sense ?

Here we go with many many shoes from Sydney’s fashion week, all in black, heels and flats.

Pitti Uomo 90 Just Arrived

Fortezza da Basso, Palazzo Pitti 14-17 June 2016, Florence

Lifestyle and fashion make for obvious bedfellows, more elegantly worded by the late Gianni Versace, one of my favorite Italian designers, who said “Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live”. Walking in Florence, since choosing to relocate here in February, I couldn’t have a better introduction to Italian culture and the sartorial trends which have influenced men’s fashion throughout the world; than the twice-yearly, Pitti Uomo trade event which presents “…clothing and accessory collections and launching new project’s in men’s fashion.”

Schermata 2016-05-29 alle 16.15.44

The exhibition, under the auspices of its corporate parent, Pitti Immagine, has provided a “Global showcase and a unifier for the national industry” since 1972, including many of today’s international fashion industry scions: Armani, Ricci, Valentino and Versace who have set the bar high for forthcoming designers. In 2016, hosting as many exhibitors and rigorously selected designers as there are statues in our museums, the Fortezza da Basso presents Hiroki Nakamura working his street apparel and cult footwear, Fausto Puglisi staging his luxurious designs using tradition fabrics, Raf Simons showing his contemporary S/S 2017 collection toGosha Rubchinskiy – this year’s guest menswear designer – showcasing his social commentary collection through media visuals, and Lucio Vanotti, the 2012 ‘Who is on Next?’ finalist known for his elegant unisex style. Concurrently, at the Palazzo Pitti, Visions of Fashion, a photographic exhibition by the iconic Karl Lagerfeld, opens to the public from 15th June inaugurating a three-year programme dedicated to the culture of contemporary fashion. This historic location more famously knows as the former residence of the Medici family, whose wealth and influence originally derived from the textile trade, offers a fitting location indeed to “promote the fashion industry as the aesthetic expression and global evolution of taste.”

GUCCI LEADERS MUSE ON FASHION SHOWS IMMEDIACY

Posted on

holding-gucci-models

NOW AND THEN: Gucci may be shaking up the fashion system with coed shows, but its chief executive Marco Bizzarri and creative director Alessandro Michele are dead set against see-now-buy-now.

The two men muse on multiple industry shifts in a 13,000-word article penned by Jonathan Wingfield — and illustrated with 50 pages of photos by Juergen Teller — in the next issue of System Magazine.

“Has anyone actually asked the customer if they want to have something available directly after the show? You hear that three bags are going to be released tomorrow in five shops, so you produce 15 bags. How many customers are you going to satisfy with that? Fifteen!” Bizzarri tells the biannual title. “Moving forward, if you want to stay away from fast fashion, I think personally we need to go in a completely opposite direction with what is being talked about.”

The executive and Michele are united about the importance of fashion shows — to a point.

“From a branding standpoint, the show represents only a fraction of our business, and the impact you actually have on the consumer is super, super tiny. I mean, what about the pre-collection?” Bizzarri says. “That is just as important as the show. So let us use the show to tell a story, and then if we need to do something to be closer to the consumer, let’s make sure that the shops today are no longer these mausoleums where you are afraid to enter.”

Adds Michele: “I love fashion shows: they’re the moment when you can give soul to the clothes. Otherwise, it is just a skirt. Fashion is about the dream and without the dream fashion doesn’t exist anymore. So I believe more and more in the fashion show, and I think that fashion needs to be more fashionable than ever before.”

The issue makes its debut Tuesday at Dover Street Market and Colette before rolling out to newsstands on May 9.

Biennale Architettura

Paolo-Portoghesi-1020x1024About Biennale Venezia: Established in 1980 curated by Paolo Portoghesi, the Venice Architecture Biennale has developed into the world’s foremost architecture event. It’s the leading forum for the exploration of architectural ideas, the social architecture, the preeminent showcase for building design and the biggest and most publicised gathering of the international design and architecture community. What better place for the first Nigerian Pavilion’s architectural creativity and quality to take the world stage?

Schermata 2016-04-27 alle 18.38.42The Biennale promotes debate about the architectural and urban design issues confronting communities and societies around the world. It’s a highly stimulating event that brings together architects with famous careers, theorists, connections with contemporary art and young practitioners on the rise.
Some countries have permanent national pavilions in Venice; others stage their exhibitions in historic buildings. The Nigerian Pavilion have chosen an industrial building with a strong programming in the year: Punch Space where create a site-specific exhibition of architect and artist Ola-Dele Kuku.
Being at Venice feeds back into this country’s built-environment planning while also telling the world that what we do here has its own distinctive character.

conf venezia 22febThe Biennale kicks off with the two-day Vernissage – one of international architecture’s most prestigious occasions – which includes a host of opening parties and opportunities to tour the exhibitions and meet their curators.
Each Biennale has a theme set by the events director, to which the creators of the national exhibitions respond. The Biennale appeals to a large and highly focussed audience: architects and designers and urban planners, naturally, but also companies that support architecture, clients that commission it, institutions that teach it and the media that publish it.
In 2014, 66 countries staged exhibitions and the Biennale attracted 240,000 visitors. More than 3,300 media were accredited, and 120 universities took part in the Biennale’s educational programme. So also this year we will have an amazing audiences!

In this condition rewrite history becomes a necessary evolution. The wrong reading of Africa transforms continent itself in a country poised in perpetual opposition to restlessness; what is its identity being a ghetto in forms and structures unsuitable? The Africa is not a country. In that conflict the first Nigerian Pavilion wants to prospect a new methodologies.

Conflict is one of the recurrent themes in the work of Ola-Dele Kuku. The architect-artist sees that as one of the driving mechanisms in our world, and as a tool to set change in motion. ‘Conflict has played a crucial role since the dawn of creation, just think of the stories of the Big Bang and the paradise of Adam and Eve’. Throughout his practice, Ola-Dele Kuku has consistently re-shaped representation in a timely challenge. Working with both drawing, installation and sculpture, he has revisited the mainstays of architectural representational methods – plan, elevation, section – to inject unsettling slippages into their rigorous formalism. This new body of work fully embraces an analytic socio-philosophical visceral slant, confronted complex issues such as resource depletion and their manipulation, migration, micro and macro global changes, an alternative vision of west Africa, growing impoverishment and the diminished capacity of a country in a multiplication use of manipulation strategies .

THE BEST BOOTIES FOR FALL 2016

Posted on Updated on

31-best-booties-10-e1461703883468

Footwear designers may or may not have been thinking of Destiny’s Child singing “Bootylicious” when creating their fall lineups. But they certainly had booties on the brain. The collections were awash with ankle-high or lower calf-hitting creations, and their incarnations were many. Balmain did a regal, black and gold military style that featured a nine-strap closure over a gilded inset. Roger Vivier’s purple suede version sported cheerful pink, green and blue laces.Francesco Russo showed more detail than normal with a sexy open-toe and open-braided black number that had a hint of dominatrix.

HOW IT IS BORN AND DEVELOPS AN ARTISTIC CREATION TO WEAR

LA COUVERTURE

When you create something that elicits emotion: this is the moment in which art comes to life and transports us to another dimension, that of ecstasy. That subtle transfer from the concept to the work accomplished is perceptible not only by its creator, but also from a more informed public, which captures the uniqueness of that creation, drawing a benefit unforgettable emotional.

Each artist then acts according to a personal style, and it is the different way of feeling and shaping the art that distinguishes a work from the other, carrying within him the autograph and unmistakable mark of its maker.

At this point the obligatory question is: fashion is also an art form? Yes, when the artist transforms his work in pure creative essence, through detachment from the consumer system, the conventions, the production series and the strictly commercial needs.

Always it inspired by art and fashion from the past, blending in with the trends of cultural movements: experimentation unabated is the essential characteristic which gives life to the creations that combine ancient forms in materials and innovative models and especially outside the box .

Therein lies the great innovative value of LA COUVERTURE   http://www.lacouverture.it/

I have an obsession: shoes. But I must confess: I have pretty little feet and often I buy, only sneakers, in the kids’ department! My size? EU 35/35.5/36, it all depends upon how the shoes fit!
However, spring is coming and with the good weather, on Sundays I like to go for a long walk . Must be honest: heels hurt so badly. The solution? I opt for sneakers and flats!
These are some of my fave pairs for the next seasons, all under €150,00!
As you can see my favorite brands of sneakers are Nike and Adidas. At the moment I’m really into Huarache and Cortez (Nike-girl of the season?/next purchases?) but I can’t abandon my beloved Superstar and Stan Smith!

THE HISTORY OF LUISA VIA ROMA

 

HOW IS A SECRET OF A PHENOMENON COMMERCIAL AND CULTURAL SO IMPORTANT?

THE E-COMMERCE PLATFORM LUISAVIAROMA.COM, EVERY DAY VISITED BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN THE PLANET.

fb_10152017515856337_110378796336_l_smallThe story takes us back to the late 1920s when Frenchwoman Luisa Jaquin married Florentine Lido Panconesi and opened a boutique selling straw hats in Paris. Lido Panconesi, who loved to bet on horses, at one point lost all his money at the Arc de Triomphe and they escaped to Brazil. In Brazil, they made a small fortune and not long after they moved back to Europe, relocating to Florence, Italy where Luisa opened a small hat boutique on via Roma.

At the time, women changed their hats three times a day: in the morning, for tea and in the evening. Lido Panconesi slowly expanded the store, adding clothes and building his own factory to produce them. In 1968, he sold the factory which had become too much of a commitment.

While still in school, Andrea Panconesi, Luisa’s grandson, started dressing the windows and flew to Paris on his firstpanconesi buying trip. Through one of his connections, Andrea had found out that a Japanese designer who was showing there at the moment had very innovative and avant-garde designs and he wanted to have a closer look at him. The designer turned out to be Kenzo and Luisa Via Roma was the first store in Europe to present the Japanese designer’s Fall/Winter 1968/69 collection.

Since Andrea Panconesi’s first revolutionary choice, Luisaviaroma has grown as a constantly innovative hunter for emergent fashion talents. Many of the major fashion houses of today were just beginning to assert themselves when they were introduced to LUISAVIAROMA’s  selection.

kenzotakadapacorabanneclaudebrouetmariebmnqehq3lwflThe concept of LUISAVIAROMA has been established gradually throughout the years, and as early as the 1980s, it had become a true reference point for devotees of luxury and fashion, flourishing as one of the most famous boutiques in the world. Panconesi and his buyers are still in the front row at fashion shows in Paris, New York, London and Milan, where they choose the most avant-garde and chic pieces of major international designers to take back to the company headquarters in Florence.

Leonardo DiCaprio gave an Oscars climate-change speech that’ll give you chills

Posted on Updated on

therevenant_000

A big hug to the great Leonardo di Caprio, also like me of Italian origin, with honor and pride, I rejoice in this success

When Leonardo Di Caprio accepted his Oscar for Best Actor Sunday night for “The Revenant,” he took the opportunity to highlight an inconvenient truth.

“Making ‘The Revenant’ was about man’s relationship to the natural world,” he said in his acceptance speech. “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”

As DiCaprio pointed out, 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. The average global temperature over land and sea was 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.90 Celsius) above the 20th century average — 0.29 F (0.16 C) hotter than the previous record set in 2014.

“Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow,” DiCaprio said.

As The Washington Post reported, the actor’s speech comes on the heals of a recent studywhich suggests climate change may be worse than we thought. The report found that humanity must keep our emissions of carbon dioxide to less than 1,000 billion tons if we’re to have a good chance of keep global warming below the widely accepted limit of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

This is not the first time DiCaprio has taken a stand on climate change. In December, he addressed mayors from around the world during the Paris climate talks, calling for countries to divest from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, The New York Times reported.

“Now to get there, we must act. We must finally leave behind the inefficient technologies of another century and the business models that they have created,” he said, according to the Times.

In January, DiCaprio received an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, for his foundation, which focuses on climate change and protecting the world’s wildlife and ecosystems.

THE ‘ZOOLANDER 2’ WORLD PREMIERE IN NYC

Posted on Updated on

zoolander

If you found Barneys or the Polo Bar suspiciously empty last night, that’s because every single fashion person in New York was at Lincoln Center for the world premiere of Zoolander 2. Derek and Hansel, Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, a handful of Jenners… we could go on. Even Neil deGrasse Tyson made an appearance.

Of course, with NYFW in the air, this major fashion moment was anything but your typical movie premiere. Besides a red carpet, there was a full-blown runway show featuring the likes of Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Stella Maxwell. Penélope Cruz, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell all appeared in character, and Justin Theroux reprised his role as the evil, dreadlocked DJ (he danced down the catwalk with Skrillex. #Casual).

Needless to say, there were plenty of memorable looks to be seen. Click through for our favorites!

REFRESH BEFORE NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Posted on

prepnyfw

It’s not called New York Fashion WEAK for nothin’. As much as we love the next seven days of nonstop shows, presentations, and parties, it’s important to prepare. Late nights, early mornings, lots of running, all while looking our best? It’s harder than it sounds – although it definitely doesn’t have to be. Click through for our (easy) go-to ways to get ready for NYFW. Trust, your skin, body, and immune system will thank you.

While a high intensity workout before a grueling week may seem counterintuitive, hear us out. Refine Method is a fashion world favorite, a boutique studio specializing in interval training that works out your entire body in just 50 minutes. Its founder, Brynn Putnam, is a Harvard-educated former ballerina, so you already know this is a smart workout that will result in lean muscles, not bulk. The small classes allow you to work closely with your instructor and it feels practically like a private session – no wonder Vogue editors and It-DJs love it so much. We can attest that after you try it, you’ll be feeling the burn for days afterwards, a.k.a. a pep in your step worthy of Fashion Week.

A lover of Italian creativity, always among the companies to discover new ideas and products. I got to visit the Creative Lab of a Tuscan company Marka Ltd, to see a collection of accessories and jewelry unique. Bracelets and chains for pants, for now, from the forms very attractive. Semiprecious stones such as amethyst, tiger eye, silver bracelets, leather, python, set in magnificent frames vaguely urban style Hipster.

It often happens that companies write to me to have a technical opinion on their creations. The most interesting ideas that I have been subjected lately, is a brand new unique style. How did the idea, the story is simple. Four entrepreneurs and friends, during a dinner they decide to give birth to a new line of products, fashion accessories. Given that the four friends have a experience in the field of industrial creativity for many years, although in different sectors. This environment is for them so challenging, complicated and fascinating at the same time, allowing him to obtain several successes to the point of deciding to embark on this new creative challenge with the creation of the brand 43 ° 11 °.

I admit that this idea intrigued me until very beginning, their enthusiasm  infected and my talent scouting staff, “always there like a sentinel,” he was immediately made to understand that I was in the right place. Then moving from words to deeds, come to see the creations of the collection 43 ° 11 °, led by manager Andrea Balleri, to see if behind this team full of energy and passion for innovation, there really is an idea that worth telling.

Joined the company and opened the caskets of the collection, I noticed three elements that strike me immediately in the products. The first is the lightness of the product, a fact that I always find it very valuable when you have to wear something. Despite the quality of the components, for example, the closure of bracelets and chains and reliable light ensures excellent resistance to the arm, as for pendants, and chains with semiprecious stones.

Before Pinterest, there was Tumblr. And while many people use Tumblr as a blogging platform, I use{d} it as an inspiration board of sorts… and to upload images that were too risque or just didn’t make sense to post here at the time.

Though now it mainly collects dust with my Instagram shots – – because of Pinterest. But I scrolled through it last night and found so many gorgeous inspirational photos just lost in the oblivion of the internet that I needed to separate out a few of my favorites from the beginning in 2009.

Big Red

Posted on Updated on

streetstyle9983-web

With the exception of my signature orange-red nail polish (Chanel’s “Holiday” is forever my one-and-only), crimson isn’t a color that’s ever made a big appearance in my closet. Until now. Call it cliché but December always brings out my sudden desire for all things red. Proof: as of last Friday, my closet now has three new scarlet additions: these shoes (party flats and so comfortable), this cozy sweater, and these earrings. And I have a feeling there may be more to come (hopefully in the form of this top). Scroll to the bottom to check out all my favorites in the merriest of hues. ‘Tis the season, right?

Secret Brightening Powder // Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Posted on Updated on

// Camouflage Powder Brush// Infusion de Rose Lip Balm //All In Good Taste Book

I’ve found that during the holiday party season, it’s those finishing touches that really make all the difference. There are three things that I like to call “the finishers” in my beauty routine: the Secret Brightening Powder, Translucent Loose Setting Powder, and the Infusion de Rose Lip Balm. The latter was a quick addiction: it’s sheer balm that adds just the right amount of moisture and it smells heavenly. What’s not to love? The powders, on the other hand, took some experimenting. Here’s what you need to know…

I’m fairly new to using powders. Since I’m a fan of the glowy look, I always thought that powders would make my face look too matte – dull the glow. It turns out that’s not the case. In fact, they actually work to highlight the glow even more. The Secret Brightening Powder is now my under-eye savior. After I applyconcealer, I dip my brush into the powder (note: a little goes a long way with this stuff) and then lightly press it under my eyes. It sets my concealer which makes it last so much longer, all with an added ‘brightening boost’. The same goes for the Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I use it all over my face post-tinted moisturizer. It sets the tinted moisturizer, without appearing cakey at all. (Not to mention, it’s applied via rolling motion with this velour pouf that kind of feels amazing on my face.)  When all is said and done, it’s super lightweight and I hardly feel like I’m wearing makeup at all.

There you have it: there can’t-leave-the-house-without-them products that are certainly essentials during the holiday festivities, but will be favorites well after party season is over.

Many times companies write to me for a technical opinion and input on their creations. I am generally happy to oblique.

One of the most interesting ideas that I have become aware of lately, is a new brand with a very unique style.  How did the idea begin? The story is simple, and the entrepreneurs are four friends, who met over dinner and decided to give birth to a new line of products, involving the creation of fashion accessories.

Upon arriving at the company and opening the caskets of the collection, I noticed three elements that strike me immediately in the products. The first is the lightness of the product, a fact that I always find very valuable when you have to wear something. Despite the closure of the bracelets and chains, they are both reliable and lightweight, as well for pendants, and chains that are set with semiprecious stones.

The second element that struck me is the exquisite design and detail, impact, quality of micro-fusion of silver, an aesthetic and functional mix I found really fascinating.

The third element that struck me is the price: finding to be an excellent compromise between quality and cost. Bearing in mind that manufacturing procedures faithfully respect the matching processing parameters in compliance with the safety standards.

A bag this small

WHITE HUNTING. a bag this small

A new trend that has already seduced everybody this winter is the mini-bag. Shoulder-straps and clutches recapture in miniature the most fashionable models. The suggestion is quite clear: bring together with you only what is strictly necessary!

Simple…Bare Minimum

Posted on Updated on

Bare Minimum…When buying pieces, I tend to think long-term. I’m not one for current trends or passing styles. I also gravitate towards monochromatic pieces in black, white & grey, my go-to classic color palette that is both effortless and timeless. While not quite monochrome, these nude tones feel very much in the spirit of that world.
I love the pale shell tones layered together, keeping the silhouettes simple & mixing the ultra sheer fabric with a textured knit creates a perfect trans-seasonal pairing. Look 3 from my recent feature is all about keeping things bare minimum…

THE CIVITAS AWARD

 

schermata-2015-10-02-alle-10-03-52I had often heard of this prestigious event. I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with the creator for an interview, Paul Lubrano.  While it may be difficult to define this character with a few lines of text: elegant man, in love with his land, with organizational skills and achievement, really special. “

On September 30, 2015 a press conference was held, where I participated, in the prestigious and oldest theater in Naples in front of a large group of journalists and representatives of private companies that were the sponsors. ”Last year, the city of Pozzuoli hosted the orchestra of the Teatro San Carlo, and this year will be the Teatro San Carlo, who will host Pozzuoli” – These are the words of Paul Lubrano, Producer of the Civitas Prize, who on the morning of Wednesday, September 30th outlined the details of the 19th edition of the prestigious award, aimed at enhancing and promoting the image of Pozzuoli in the world with the help of personality forming task of real testimonials Flegreo territory.

                                                    Why did the choice fell to these three individuals?

Giuseppe Gaudino, Pozzuoli Doc, starring in recent weeks of the film “For Your Sake.” The theater director Franco Dragone, the genius of Cirque du Soleil, has exported abroad sophisticated talent from Campania with a cumulative audience of more than 85 million people. And finally, the astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, Neapolitan by adoption for fundamental formative years spent at the Academy Force Academy and Federico II; a woman who this past January moved us devoting time to the disappearance of Pino Daniele via a photograph of the Gulf of Pozzuoli, taken from the International Space Station. In short, a trio of excellent awards recipients who serve as ambassadors of the artistic heritage, landscape and culture of Pozzuoli in the world.  Names sure to be added to the long list of personalities transformed over time in the face of the Civitas Award, range from Sophia Loren to Tilda Swinton, from Sherman to Dante Ferretti.

PREVIOUS EVENTS

So begins the countdown to the Nineteenth Edition of the Civitas Award which points to the stars of space, film and theater. Namely: the astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, the director Giuseppe Gaudino and theater director Franco Dragone. The three will receive the award Sunday, October 4th at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples and not, as is customary, in the ancient Macellum (Temple of Serapis) Pozzuoli, due to bad weather.

On the podium, directing Orchestra and Chorus will be the American Orchestra Director Christopher Franklin, with the historic staging by Roberto De Simone.

schermata-2015-10-02-alle-09-51-24The Civitas Award was created by the artist Lello Lopez who created an original work, inspired by the unique charm of his art: a steel hand covered with a starfish. “I’ve been able to see and photograph, which I must say, is a beautiful work.”

There is a prize that the City of Pozzuoli hosts as well, thanks to Civitas, the fourth edition of Lermontov. Lermontov was established by the Foundation and the Institute of Russian Culture M. Lermontov with the aim of uniting, spiritually and artistically, Italy and Russia. For 2015 the Lermontov prize goes to the Teatro San Carlo. A well-deserved honor and recognition.

Although the event will not take place at Macellum, the Civitas Award is working to create an innovative lighting system installed in the historic site.

AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – During the last year there were many who point out that, after theschermata-2015-10-02-alle-02-36-46 impressive rally of May 29, 2014, it was unacceptable that the area of ​​the Temple of Serapis continued to continue with conditions of neglect and decay. Today the Civitas Award is working to create an innovative lighting system installed in the Macellum to be donated to the city with the collaboration of the Campania Region, the City of Pozzuoli and Department of Antiquities. “The Civitas Award is aimed at promoting the area away from the tourists – reiterates Paul Lubrano – and this year we allocate a substantial investment in the exploitation of international cultural impact (the responsibility of the Superintendent and now dimly lit thanks to the synergy of the City – Ed.)” We have opened a discussion with the bodies involved in order to have all permits and conclude the process as soon as possible – continues Lubrano – The goal is to succeed in December this year. Through the lighting fixtures to LED source, ensuring sustainable lighting, we will redesign the character of the original archaeological site, highlighting the features and points currently in the shadow of the Macellum.” The installation is signed off by the lighting designer Filippo Cannata, who adds:” I expected a light that was not the evening dress of the monument but that could express a concept of beauty, capable of bringing out the hidden image from time to citizens and tourists, as strong flow of attraction. “

FASHION // FREE PEOPLE TAKES PARIS

When styles from the ’60s and ’70s came rushing into the ’90s and the thrift stores became my favorite places to find unique treasures from the eras . I learned how to make styles the my own, even if they came off a bit costume-y from time to time, it was all par for the ’90s course. I found creative ways to make old new and new, interesting, and probably had a few people wondering what on earth I was wearing. But that’s usually the case and I don’t mind.

To see retro styles again now, created with new textiles and fabrics and colors, worn in similar but fresh ways, and incorporating the ’90s configurations as well, just make me smile. The faux suede button front a-line skirt I wore the other day is a new version of an old ’70s classic I had in my possession years ago and finally got rid of because the style was stiff and rigid and never fit right. But the new “faux suede” has stretch to it, making it far more flattering AND comfortable to wear. That’s a double bonus! But I love the retro styles and the addition of the ’90s as .It’s just fun and that’s why I love fashion.

Below are images from their September 2015 Lookbook in Paris.
