At the Italian XFactor

I know, I'm not a cool blogger... I'm not able to post in real time the things I do, I see or where I go... Whatever!
The blog is mine and I do what I want! XD
So, I decided to update only now some photos I made last week.
On Tuesday a friend invited me to see the italian XFactor at the studio in via Mecenate (Milano), where we spent a really nice evening. The program is pure fun and the atmosphere there was great! This is a little selection of the evening, check it out:


Lo so, non sono un blogger molto figo... Non sono in grado di postare in tempo reale le cose che faccio, che vedo o dove vado... Ma chissenefrega!
Il blog è mio e faccio quello che mi pare! XD
Quindi ho deciso di postare solo adesso alcune foto scattate settimana scorsa.
Martedì un amico mi ha invitato a vedere XFactor direttamente negli studi di via Mecenate a Milano e devo dire che la serata è stata piacevole. Il programma è divertente  e l'atmosfera lì era fantastica. Questa è una piccola selezione della serata:

          Me and  three of the four judges besieged  by photographers

The four judges                                                                                 
"Nemo"  chairs by Driade on stage                                                               
Exhibition + Backstage Enrique Iglesias  
  Cassandra: now out of the show 

Getting home... lovely night!

Let's see what happens tonight... on TV! :D

Vedremo che succede stasera... alla TV! :D

Tra bloggers ci si intende... outfit del giorno

Two bloggers examples poles apart: Silvia (GingerFizz) and Chiara Ferragni (TheBlondeSalad). The former is shy, reserved, reluctant in posting her outfits (she doesn't write anything in her blog, she prefers let the editorials, the images or the products speaks); the latter is famous, photographed, clicked, a presence in every cool event, un untiring blogger who can post innumerable outfits and share with us details of her life.
I met both of them (Silvia is also a friend), so I can also say things they have in common: both blondes, really nice, very kind and obviously with a great sense of style... No accident that they chose the same jacket and same match colours: for Silvia pleated Black&White dress, leggins and flat shoes; for Chiara black skinny jeans, white blouse, cap and boots.
Which one do you prefer?


Due esempi di bloggers agli antipodi tra loro: Silvia (GingerFizz) e Chiara Ferragni (TheBlondeSalad). La prima è schiva, riservata, restia a pubblicare i suoi outift (non scrive nulla sul suo blog, preferisce far parlare i redazionali, le immagini o i prodotti che la colpiscono); la seconda è famosa, fotografata, cliccatissima, presenzialista, instancabile blogger in grado di postare i suoi innumerevoli outfits e di condividere con noi le sue giornate.   
Le ho incontrate entrambe (Silvia è un'amica), e posso dire quali sono i punti che hanno in comune: entrambe bionde, molto simpatiche, gentilissime e ovviamente con un innato senso dello stile... Non a caso scelgono la stessa giacca e gli stessi colori in abbinamento: per Silvia abito plissettato bianco e nero, leggins e ballerine; per Chiara skinny jeans (scuri), camicia bianca, coppola e tronchetti...
Voi chi preferite?

The fashion month is over. Paris Recap (part deux)

PARIS FW: Round two. Chek it out.


The setting of the show is a sort of seaport. Models on the runway are young travelling girls in oversized jackets and micro dresses. Lots of prints and fluo colours, shorts and high heels (John, are you sure that all your shoes fits to the summer temperature?). Nice the contrast of feminine and masculine, great punchy accessories. Funny all the sailor caps.

Is this a summer shoe?


An experimental collection for the Roman designer who tries for the first time elements as leopardskin prints and linear cuts. New proportions and drapes are combined with trasparencies and bright colours especially yellow and orange. Lovely the little dresses and  the flat shoes designed for the modern it-girls (such as Giambattista's friend Bianca Brandolini D'Adda).


I have to say that I expected more from Riccardo Tisci this time. I think I have already in mind his last wonderful Couture Collection (it was also my first post here); that was superb. This time the show is certainly powerful and sensual but unconvincing. Strong is the Black&White and the feminine&masculine contrast, nice the work on leather and chiffon.  Modern dark girls on the runways also in trasparencies, leopardskin, strong make-up and slim silhouettes.


This is probably going to be the last Jean-Paul Gaultier's collection for the Maison...
A very sexy woman on the runway, a chic cow-girl dressed in leather (of course!). The DNA of Hermès is certainly well represented in all the outfits, from the slim jackets to the trousers, and of course in all the accessories: the belts, the boots, the hats and the It-Bags. Wonderful the setting: horses and riders at the beginnig of the runway conceived as a stable.


I have to say that I really had problems in choosing the outfits for the post because all the looks were amazing... This is just a little selection but I think that Alber Elbaz is doing a great job at Lanvin. He is bringing the Maison into another level. The collection is feminine, chic and every piece is wearable. Fluent dresses, clean proportions and a really interesting research. Drapes, appliquè, prints for a modern and complete collection, full of different references and styles. Wonderful also the colour palette: from black, grey, beige to all fluo colours as yellow, fuchsia, purple... I love all the monospalla (don't know the translation) dresses and the accessories, in particular the necklaces and the flat sandals.
