Like you, after the snow, I want colors and sunshine. But do not believe that I do not like white! White is the new black and Colors are my Crayola felt-tip pens!!! So this week, to bring spring, I invite you to discover my Italian loves, MY Italy: its treasures, its secret addresses, its fashion or jewelry designers, and above all, its colors! Perché si, amo l’Italia!
Secret love? Here is Apulia
Even more beautiful than northern Apulia, those of the South are secret and wild. Do you like baroque style and when the walls speak to you?!! See you in Lecce.
In addition, you will find in Lecce an amazing fashion designer … Antonio Franco (Atika, Via Rubichi 13). Antonio creates beautiful clothes inspired from the 1920s to 1960s. His fabrics and couture are sublime. Not to mention his vintage accessories: jewels, necklaces and bracelets! And if you are a fan of Italian designers, Lecce organizes itsFashion Week every year!
Otherwise, if you are more interested by the big blue, then head to Gallipoli! It is a surprising little La Rochelle (a famous French walled city surrounded by the sea): turquoise water, small beaches, terraces galore as simple as nice for a morning ristreto coffee or a Spritz while admiring the sunset on the sea!
City love? Weekend in Rome
Because Rome is THE Dolce Vita, Fellini, romance and Italian love!
And then, there are two things I suggest you do in Rome.
1. Eat a Tartuffo Pizza Navonna, if you are greedy like me … I love the chocolate of this frozen truffle!!!
2. Have a picnic on the outskirts of the Castel Sant’Angelo with a Ciabatta e prosciutto crudo sandwich. Also, if you want to combine fashion and design, go to the Fendi Foundation: a temple of fashion and neoclassical architecture!
Fashionista? My love of fashion designers
What I love above all in the Italian style is this love for excess! But it is not counting also on the detail of the fashion accessories: oversize bags, big sequins on pink summer coat for Prada or the red hearts of Dolce Gabbana. In Italy, one dares the color and the contrast and I adore it! A true Dolce Vita love!
And for a touch of ultimate refinement, here is THE Dolce Vita. A two-tone leather cuff closed with two collar buttons. Some discreet and elegant collar buttons and soft leathers. But why the Dolce Vita? Simply because this limited edition is inspired by the Neapolitan cuff! Look at a James Bond movie and you will understand that 007 is wearing Neapolitan cuff shirts like this picture, in the bottom left, in Dr. No’s famous James Bond.
In short, I hope you have guessed that my heart beats for Italy!
Above all, feel free to share this post if you liked it with your friends! And if you write to me, I will gladly give you all my addresses and tips on my loves in Italian style! And also, I will tell you about my passion for fashion accessories!
