It’s that time of year again when some of the best dressed gents convene in Florence, at Pitti Uomo, inspiring us with their wares. Straw boaters, a mix of plaid, floral and gingham, pocket squares and smart suits for days . . . honestly, sharp.
I recently stopped a girl on the street to compliment her on her ethnic printed jumpsuit. Convinced it was one of a kind, I was excited to discover it was a Novella Royale creation and available to purchase online! Summer ready bells, jumpsuits and dresses . . . I foresee some major credit card damage.
I’m so in love with Sunny Gu‘s fashion illustrations. Her unbelievable attention to detail only accentuates the use of ornate textures and wonderful colors. I’m not sure which is more inspiring – the original designs from the catwalk where she finds her inspiration or her watercolor versions?
Geraldo da Conceicao’s first resort collection for Sonia Rykiel was a true tribute to the French designer’s penchant for knitwear. Pastel knit dresses, pleated skirts and intarsia sweaters were given a très chic lift with biker jackets, giant nylon backpacks, and sky high platform espadrilles. Perfect ensembles for a Parisian outing, n’est pas?
