Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – Trainers

I have never been the “girly” type. When I was a child my mother used to send me to the hair stylist once a month to get my hair cut really short, even if I always tried to avoid it and let my hair grow long like my sisters’. In fact I used to be a real tomboy! Style improvement apart, I have not changed much over the years, and the little tomboy girl I used to be is still inside me.

However, despite the fact I still have pretty short hair, like every girl I like to wear high heels sometimes, or a skirt rather than the usual trousers. Actually, what I really like is to mix male clothes with female items: the chioce is wider and the results on my look are, in my opinion, much more interesting than they would have if I was wearing only womanly clothes.

And this is why, when I read magazines, I go around the city taking pictures of people or I browse on the internet, my attention is mainly (but not only) focused on this kind of style.

Lately I find really interesting the so called “sporty-chic” style, a well studied mix of classic female elements with some others more “sporty” and comfortable. Shoes, for instance: trainers with a shapeless dress, an A-line or pencil skirt, combined with an oversized top, are becoming really popular and, for me, the new way to improve my favourite look.

I think I will give to my old and beloved Vans Old Skool another chance!

Suddenly in love with white.

I just look around myself and I see white. Maybe it is just because I am tired of all these dark colours of an extended winter, or maybe it is because it is actually happening that passion for white is spreading everywhere. Continue reading Suddenly in love with white.

Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – Volta footwear

Volta Footwear SS13

As an obsessive-compulsive shoes addict as I am, I am always looking for nice and particular shoes. I once saw some Volta shoes in Milan back in 2010 and from that moment I knew that this footwear brand would become one of my favourite ones.

And I had all the reasons to keep an eye to Volta, because currently it actually still is a brand that produces very good shoes.

Born in 2008, the italian shoes Volta are now becoming quite popular, thanks to their high quality and a really singular aesthetic. Coming from a “urban” background, Volta shoes are made for the busy lifestyle of the city, where walking, rushing and sometimes also running are a priority, that have to match with a stylish appearance.

Initially and mainly made for men, from the last season is been created a women’s collection that brings in itself the Volta’s soul but that also pays more attention to the latest trends, for a smart and fashonable woman.

The perfect combination of lengths.

Miu Miu SS13 has chosen a sort of “50’s style”, Topshop Unique AW 13/14 goes more for a Boho-Chic woman, Balenciaga and Roland Mouret‘s option for SS13 has gone for the 80s/90s working class woman. The outfit: short bodice + 3/4 length skirt.

What I like most of this combination is the perfect balance that is been created between lengths: show, without showing off. The coat on top gives more power to the whole outfit: oversize and a bit masculine, this item surprisingly emphasizes the feminine side of the woman.

Simply gorgeous.

More single parts set the whole thing – Segmented shoes

They are an hybrid between a proper shoe and a sandal, for some you can just say that “there is something missing”, but it is always on purpose.

My latest obsession are segmented shoes, a genious and fresh way to re-invent “winter” and classic shoes, such as ankle boots and Oxford shoes. Like some art works in Surrealism and Abstractism where you need to look at the whole thing to see the real image, this kind of shoes are made just by listings and outline, empty spaces wisely connected by straps, transparent plastic, vinyl or pvc…but still you can see their “original” shape, if you look at the whole shoe.

I like the idea, plus you can wear and show nice socks…just to add a trend to another (see The detail that makes the difference – Knee Socks).

Céline is on fire!

I simply could not resist. Hope you do not find us boring but, as we always say about this blog, we like to share what we like, it does not matter if what we like sometimes comes from the same designer. In this case is Céline, that again, on top of the stunning AW 13/14 collection, created a serie of bags and clutches that are unusual in their…simplicity, I would say. I just love them.
