Suit and Sneakers

IMG_8673 A quick throwback to the beginning of summer when I was in London for the CSM short course. Actually, the outfit I was wearing was inspired by the Rude Boy exhibition I have wrote about in my previous post. London’s vibe made me want to suit up and dress down mixing sneakers and a tailored jacket. What can I say… I am starting to get a little nostalgic with my early summer days. Who else is craving for an endless summer?

I was wearing: Topshop jacket, Adidas sneakers, Jbrand jeans, Uniqlo shirt, Goyard bag, Miu Miu sunglasses and Dior tribal earrings.

The Return of the Rudeboy

IMG_8410 Ever since the course at CSM and the visit to this amazing photography exhibition “The Return of the Rudeboy” by Dean Chalkley at Somerset house, I have started to be more and more interested in menswear fashion and style. I have always seen men dressed amazingly during mfw, but I honestly never paid that much attention to them. I was totally wrong. Taking inspiration from menswear for outfits has just become my favorite thing. Blazers, suits, shirts, shoes, I just love everything, but mostly I love the way in which, the Rudeboy exhibition juxtaposed classic and elegant elements to street ones. Take  look at a couple of pictures I took of the exhibition! IMG_8414 IMG_8417 IMG_8413 IMG_8422 IMG_8465 IMG_8433 IMG_8435 IMG_8448 IMG_8459 IMG_8421 IMG_8447 IMG_8441 IMG_8454 IMG_8462 IMG_8439 IMG_8431 IMG_8424 IMG_8419 IMG_8416 IMG_8411 IMG_8485 IMG_8409 IMG_8438 IMG_8460 IMG_8412 IMG_8449 IMG_8418 IMG_8430 IMG_8436 IMG_8434 IMG_8455 IMG_8456 IMG_8437 IMG_8450 IMG_8423 IMG_8425 IMG_8427 IMG_8451 IMG_8467 IMG_8461 IMG_8444 IMG_8403 -ℳ

A dream come true.

IMG_8934 My week studying at Central St. Martins is now over and it has been one of the best fashion learning experiences of my life. The whole of last week I have been attending the Fashion Styling course at the Granary square building in London where I have been busy making a fashion editorial with a group of five other girls. Initially it was quite hard to come up with outfits and ideas that we all liked, however in the end we worked as a team and had the best result!! I tried to do my best with my modeling…. haha, but anyway overall I am very proud of our first fashion editorial! Our theme was “Rude Girl/ Rude Boy”, which we renamed “Mandemulus”. Here are a couple of photos of my experience:

Camo Green

IMG_8013

My day in Bologna: rain, dentist and shopping. The camo outfit definitely contributed to the whole idea of going to ‘war’, and, to a certain extent it was true. In was one very full day: from 9 am to 5pm, my mother and I were in Bologna on a mother-daughter errand day.We roamed around the center of Bologna until after lunch, checking out our favorite shop: Ratti, and some other cute places. Then, right after lunch, we went to the  usual monthly dentist appointment and after that, we were back in Rome. Despite the weather we had fun: both ready to face the rain with our camo green outfits. Camouflage is one print that can have many effects, make you look sporty, comfy and confident at the same time.

Andy the Pop King

foto 2-5 After having been locked up studying in my room for about two weeks, it is finally time for my exams to be over. I think that the past two weeks have been amongst the longest two weeks of my life. As soon as I was free, my friends and I were finally able to visit the brand new Andy Warhol exhibition here in Rome at Palazzo Cipolla, the name of the place is ironically uninviting, subject of a few jokes on my side…. Anyway, jokes aside, the Warhol exhibition was spectacular, the juxtaposition of colors, shapes and silhouettes mind-blowing and the realization that most of what we love about art today is inspired by Warhol and his aesthetic enlightening. Warhol was the first one to enjoy  taking selflies, even before the word ‘selfie’ was coined, he was inspired by fashion, personal fears, God, death, consumerism and celebrities, and ultimately became the king of Pop and contemporary art. Here are a couple of pictures I was sneakily able to take, clearly not respecting the “you cannot take pictures” warning. The paintings, prints and photographs were just too beautiful, I absolutely could not resist taking a couple of shots.

foto 3  It is never an easy task to find the perfect bikini: they are either too tight, too small, too big or too normal. Every body is different, and a bikini not only has the duty to be sexy enough, but also has the absolute obligation to improve and enhance your figure in some way. Well, when you finally find the perfect one, it’s the best feeling in the world.  You officially feel ready for the best season of all! This year I was lucky enough to find a new swimwear line that proved to be just right for me: I was able to find innovative shapes, fun prints and bright colors. Be sure to have a look at Amani Swimwear, you might just be as lucky as I was and find your new summer’s bikini.10296634_563796613731705_907440105385720782_n foto 5 IMG_3326 10306743_571767539601279_8451424653697969827_n 10256421_564457453665621_2422115690147922490_n IMG_3968IMG_321910364021_565803363531030_6219562668742244412_n10334362_561722497272450_8890746565971843904_n1972382_565797933531573_3112895887866668659_nIMG_3222foto 5 copiafoto 1foto 4IMG_322310172801_563800607064639_8088136735163975705_n10311050_561653850612648_6241860995153429385_n10178149_563812037063496_4967627693019590439_nfoto 210367167_563176880460345_6953785587696275702_nIMG_322010371510_559002374211129_265500605921591326_nfoto 4 copia10171164_561977687246931_1415160345362063427_nIMG_3224 Most pictures taken from @AmaniSwimwear instagram page.

Yellow Soles

foto 2 It was long since I’ve last worn my Cole Haan neon yellow soled shoes, actually I think I’ve last worn these in one of the first outfit posts I have ever published on The Style Saviour, which is pretty long ago if you think about it. I have never realized two years have now passed. Two years in which I have shared my experiences, outfits, personal tastes and interests with you guys. Two years in which I have grown and learnt so much, not only about fashion and blogging, but also about myself and my interests. If I was ever able to do so is thanks to my family, friends, and thanks to all of you guys, who stopped by this blog and found it interesting: a blog about a 16 year old girl in love with fashion and life. I think this outfit reflects my overall personality: causal but careful and attentive to details. This was from last Sunday: a day spent in relax (and a little bit of studying) with my family and friends. The perfect day: the sun, my loved ones and a comfortable outfit.

It’s the Fontana Sisters baby!

foto 2This is just what I call the perfect break from an overly stressful week. And this post is just the kind of post that comes an overly-crowded mind, right out of an intense Biology test this afternoon- so excuse me if I might sound a little confused at times. Well, right out of school, (obviously changing in the car), I went to a really nice event at the Maxxi Museum for a competition held for Micol Fontana’s 100th year anniversary. If you guys don’t know who the Fontana sisters are, i’ll sum it up for you in four nice words: the best of the best. They essentially made Italian fashion and Italian craftsmanship what it is– they were renowned world-wide in the 1900s. This competition organized by the Micol Fontana organization gave the opportunity to young fashion students to create their designs: dresses, shoes, bags and jewels, inspired by the Fontana fashion and Italian Cinema, having the chance to win an internship/stage at Bulgari, Max Mara, Fendi or Salvatore Ferragamo. Not bad at all!! It’s just great how such prominent fashion companies are leaving some space to young adults in the midst of the huge and competitive world that is fashion nowadays. Apart from all of those wonderful and amazing things, the best part of it all was that in the end, Micol, one of the Fontana sisters (she is 100yrs old) came for a short while and we were all able to see face-to-face this iconic woman, a woman who literally changed the fashion world.

here are a couple of blurry pictures… not of the best but just to give an idea

Sun Is Up, Put Your Shades ON!

We’re now past mid-May, and it’s more than time to say that my summer countdown has officially begun. That being said, I could not live through the next three months without the perfect pair of sunglasses. For this summer, I favor colors and innovative shapes to make a statement. I think you could wear the simplest outfit in the world, but with a pair of these babes down here you just won’t go unnoticed. So, when the sun is up, move your bodyyy and put your shades on.

The Chanel World

fc3f

The Chanel Resort 2015 fashion show was held just yesterday in Dubai- Once more, I felt like I had to pay homage to all the wonderful locations where Karl has decided to stage his outfits throughout the years. He has made me dream of being in a completely new world: the Chanel world. From Chanel icebergs to royal banquets, on the streets of St. Tropez or at the Versailles Palace, Chanel supermarkets, Chanel forests, and Chanel art galleries. We have been almost everywhere, transported, collection after collection, to a new world, surrounded by an aura of perfection for about 30 unforgettable minutes.
