Ruffled In Rocha

I just recently returned from Florence where I was invited by our friends at Luisa Via Roma for Firenze4Ever, a bi-annual affair celebrating the best of art and fashion. I couldn’t think of a better weekend spent than styling looks, with the Italian retailer’s most lustworthy offerings from the fall collections, in one of my beloved cities in the world. And let’s not forget the shopping, the art and the food! The moment I saw Simone Rocha‘s Elizabethan inspired double jersey coat, I knew the magnificent Uffizi Gallery was the perfect backdrop for such a sumptuous work of art. The smooth texture and voluminous shape of Rocha’s ruffled coat is just insane. I need it. And I’ll take it with a side of fries too.

    Absolutely gorgeous. I love the structure but it’s a bit bulky for me to wear. Maybe that’s the point? :] // itsCarmen.com ☼
