Halloween has passed, the masks were worn and thrown away, but the question remains: “To be or not to be or appear or to be ?” I spent Halloween night in a club in Milan where involuntarily I started to observe the behavior of people next to me. Men and women more or less mature sedated by the fumes of alcohol for a night (hopefully for them) have decided to play another role. It is not the dualism of the people who scare me but the excess, stretched to the limit, the desire to look and not wanting to be. All judge others and no one has ever asked yourself the question of why they act in this way. Why is it better to pretend to be what we are not to fear of being scratched and suffer. Be what we are not, making us perhaps most infallible in the eyes of life? the answer is up to you. (more…)
The night is the best moment for me. Thoughts are free without constriction of the daily routine. It’s been two days since I left Paris and sleepless I find myself to relate the black and white photo I took few days ago. Walking around what everyone calls the city of love, I found myself to walk the streets filmed by one of the greatest artists of our time Woody Allen and to immerse myself in a story. We all believe we live in the wrong era. We tend to believe that the past was easier than our present and that the problems of the past were not so huge like the present. I am one of the first that would have given anything to have the opportunity to live in Paris in time of Chanel, Vionnet and Fitzgerald but only a few days ago while walking along the Seine and leafing through old books consumed by the time I get it. I realized that I was in the right age, in the right place at the right time. It ‘was like a bolt from the blue, and I realized that all the mistakes, sacrifices and changes of the road were the right way to my serenity. In life there will always be bad people and envious who will try to take advantage of you and your kindness, who will try to fill your shoes because they are not be able to product shoes as you did, but once you’ve figured out that you’re on the right track, that all your efforts will be rewarded you just have to keep walking down that street. Paris is a magical city for me, but not for the reasons that all attribute, I have not been in love in Paris but I’m in love with Paris and creativity and tranquility that gives me day after day, random encounter of an evening , the lights that illuminate the city, the palpitations of young lovers who swear eternal love in front of the Eiffel Tower. It will be that when you have the serenity in the heart everything is pink, pink as the celebrated Vie En Rose by the superb Edith Piaf. (more…)
New York is so spectacular that I want to share with you not only the moments of fashion week but also the most “touristic” that all of us live every day. On my second day in New York I was able to carve out some time to visit the West side of Manhattan: Central Park, Times Square and Fifth Avenue. Obviously the high heels I’ve abandoned in the hotel and I wore a pair of comfortable shoes with a slight rise. The climate of this city is very variable and is between 15 to 35 degrees from road to road, if you are going to come to this fabulous city will always recommend to wear a sweater when you enter the store as the air conditioning is very strong . Leave the word to the photos that speak for themselves and I escape to another Fashion show (more…)

The wrong side of…
Everyone has the “famous both sides of the coin”, strengths and weaknesses that make us unique and above all make us who we are. As well as we, also Fashion has its own strengths and weaknesses. Maybe you know more negative than positive, but what are they? Why all insist to want to work “in fashion”? Everyone are masochists? The answer is simple. Before the advent of technology, social networks and the creation of the Media Marketing only a few people around the globe had the privilege to be part of that elite world that dictated the ranks of fashion, season after season. The mystery that enveloped certainly made it much more enticing to the eyes of those who didn’t live it directly and just bought it. Today, with social media, with news that travels in real time, that glittered fog in which fashion has always been shrouded thinned, leaving space for young people who have always tried to work in it. Fashion is the realization of a dream that once consumed becomes the starting point of another. Flaw of this world is its frenetic that threatens to drain you and not give you the chance to experience moments of life that will never come again. The choice is yours, the game worth the candle?

Today is my birthday and this time I really wanted to write. I started this blog to talk about fashion but also to hear my voice, my thoughts.
Today I want to talk about creativity, imitation and copying. What is the recipe for a successful concept? It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In fashion, the concept of imitating, copying has always been the basis for the spread of a new product. For example, when a bag is imitated, it means that his fame has reached its peak and has spread to all markets. Another example is the tweed jacket designed by Gabrielle Chanel, replicated by many other designers up to the big chains low cost and so it was for the jacket with the “sharp” shoulders created by Christophe Decarnin for Balmain now can be found everywhere . When an idea is good it is inevitable the emergence of imitators. There is more successful and the more you copy, it is a “thermometer of consent.” Recently one of my most cherished follower sent me pictures from a known and famous blog that after the release of my posts recreated situations very similar to those proposed by me and also in the structure of the site there have been changes resembling the structure of my . Once aware of this, I was not disappointed but instead I experienced as a confirmation that i have created a “good product.” At school, in class assignments you tried to copy from the best, because it was a guarantee of success. When the product works is inevitable to spread and try to recreate it, so I had further confirmation that my ideas, my efforts to create something different are appreciated by all.
