L’F unisex: original and italian… what else?

20140315-175131.jpg

Talking about Fashion everyone would be agree that Italy is one of the leading countries. But that doesn’t mean that we have only D&G and Gucci and all those famous labels…

The Made in Italy can be also young, fresh, fancy and above all indipendent.

A couple of young designer – Licia Florio and Francio Ferrari – launched a collection of unique and unisex shoes, which had become their signature giving them recognitions and success.

So… soon will be my birthday, and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to celebrate with some e-shopping on their website…

And you? What are you waiting for?

Modern Hippies in Amsterdam

Modern Hippies Markt

 

Yesterday I had a great afternoon in a special market in Amsterdam Roest: was the Moderne Hippies Markt.

It isn’t just a common market, because it takes place only four times per year, so if you’re interested in visit it check their website to be update on all the events and markets scheduled!

( ww.modernehippies.nl )

There were a lot of stands, all different and customized were you can find all those very ’70s accessories: feathers for your hair, bells and belts for your boots, and gorgeous secondhand coats and shirts.

After shopping and tasting the vintage atmosphere it was also possible to have a massage or a hair restyling: amazing isn’t it?

I’m already looking foreword for the next Modern Hippies Market!

Style spotting

As you all may know, today it’s  Valentine’s day and right now I’m having a drink in a nice pub in Amsterdam (yes, indeed we’re living here)!
The hipster-kinda-atmosphere of this pub (The Schuim, just in front of the yellow squat in Spuistraat) inspired me the idea of a new project: trying to find spot and trends from the stylish Amsterdam’s streets!

Yeah… now I’ll think about it while we’re waiting for our St. Valentine’s indian dinner!!

Stay tuned and see what’s gonna happen!

Jbag: definitely I need one!

jbag_00

For all those living in the North (like me!) where backpacks are a must have: finally we can find the way to being out of the box even wearing our favourite bags!

Well, that’s not a .jpg, neither a simple bag or a backpack: that’s just .JBAG

An italian duo of designers made this backpack giving a special  attention to details, materials (it’s fully realized with eco leather) and design of this unique accessory based on the shape of a teabag or maybe the idea of origami.

I bought the urban.JBAG from the Bright Collection on line for a such affordable price (you can find it here:http://www.jbag.it ) and now I cannot go out without it: it’s practical, gorgeous, different and most important of all I am getting so many compliments and “OMG where did you buy it? I definitely need one!”

Infinitely Kusama

Infinitley Kusama. Starting from the 10th of July it will be possible to see the new Louis Vuitton Collection by the japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

This was a memorable year for Yayoi Kusama, enriched by a lot of different exhibitions. It all started with Kusama, the personal exhibition at the Tate Modern in London opened on 9 February. Then the prestigious fashion label, directed by Marc Jacobs, will launch Infinitley Kusama on the 10th, just two days before the opening ceremony at the Whitney Museum in New York (July 12 – September 30, 2012).

Once again Marc Jacobs proved that Art and Fashion can cohabit, because they can live together influencing each other, not only in a high cultural way. For this reason, after Takashi Murakami on 2009 it is again time for Japanese Vuitton Art.

Kusama, who conquered Empire State Building with her polka dots, is about to spread bags, bracelets, clothes and shoes with her colored dots. Even the evergreen brown-gold LV bags are flooded by the Kusama’s parcelling storm. Maybe she is saying that now is the right time to remodel the designer accessory that conquered best the desires of all women from the universities hall to the supermarkets queues.

May I say what is for me the best item? The superflat dotted pumpkin that is evolving into the third dimension of bag and jewel at the same time (as you can see in the picture above).

 

Summer homework: save your money in order to be able to collect a small piece of Art in your wardrober!

 

 

Infinitamente Kusama. Dal 10 Luglio nei negozi Louis Vuitton sarà disponibile la nuova collezione nata dalla collaborazione con l’artista giapponese Yayoi Kusama.

Quest’anno è stato ricco di riconoscimenti per Yayoi. Prima la mostra alla Tate Modern di Londra, conclusasi da neanche una settimana, e due giorni dopo il lancio sul mercato della moda ci sarà l’inaugurazione della sua personale al Whitney Museum di New York (12 Luglio).

Dopo Takashi Murakami nel 2009 è ora il secondo turno dell’arte giapponese firmata Louis Vuitton. L’artista, che con i suoi pois era riuscita a conquistare anche l’Empire State Building, ora cospargerà di puntini colorati scarpe, bracciali, bluse, borse e pantaloni. Anche le intramontabili borse LV non vengono risparmiate dalla tempesta parcellizzante della Kusama! E forse è giunto il momento giusto di rimodernare l’accessorio firmato che ormai più di tutti ha conquistato il braccio delle donne, dalle aule universitarie fino alle code dei supermercati.

Posso dire qual’è secondo me il pezzo forte? La zucca di pallini superflat che evolve alla terza dimensione diventando borsetta e gioiello allo stesso tempo!! (potete ammirarla nella foto in alto!!)

Compiti per l’Estate: mettere da parte quanto potete e custodire anche voi una piccola opera d’arte nell’armadio!!
