  • New York via Calabria. How the granddaughter of a Sicilian barber fell in love with the profession at an early age, landed in the Big Apple, (re)invented her job, and wound up achieving her dream of working in the world of fashion (and much more).
  • A group of young ladies in swimsuit(s) portrayed on a beach in Florida at the end of the ‘20s, a bald head completely covered by a giant, colorful tattoo of a man in Pittsburgh, the photo of a stolen moment of a man and a woman during a party in their fancy dresses at Venice Casino as well as details, ornaments and accessories of traditional dresses from all over the world. All of this (and so much more) is what Fashion is about.
  • The countdown to 2015 is upon us. It’s time to embrace the tradition and magic of the upcoming holidays in style! Italian style, that is!

  • For a comfortable, romantic, softly lit, playful and wry spring. The watchword is vintage. Italian stylists have come to us bearing gifts inspired by the world of dance and the splendors of childhood. Our recommendations for intimate apparel, on the other hand, lean toward the sexy and (obviously) vintage. For your own personal downtime, only trust designs wedded to fashion. As for your wrist, go romantic—without a shadow of a doubt. And for you first jog across the grass left behind by the snow? Below you’ll find some decidedly different shoes….

  • In the current exhibition “Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968,” MAXXI demonstrates that the cross-fertilization of fashion with the idioms of high art and cinema can produce wearable objects worthy of being enshrined in museums long after they are no longer strictly “in fashion.”
