ANIMALIER PRINTS: HOW FAR WOULD YOU DARE?

Early this morning I was having a chat with my colleague during our breakfast appointment. She was wearing a cool pair of leopard flats, combined with blue-jeans and a dark blazer. She looked lovely and I was looking at her just to pay her many compliments for her unusual style…when she turned her head towards me and mumbled:

“Oh..I really don’t know if I like these shoes..! – I think they are too much for me, I am not the right person for leopard print…I have my style and I prefer other things, I think..!”

The right person? What does that mean? Who is really the right person for the animalier print? Is there a rule about it? Is there a chance for us to try once in our life the leopard print? Yes there is. And the proof is here below..right under your eyes!

So my friends.. HOW FAR WOULD YOU DARE WITH ANIMALIER PRINTS?

SHOES ADVENTURES AT MICAM 2014

micam-2014

To all footwear lovers, MICAM is THE temple of any sort of shoes where to admire in advance what kind of shoes you will wear next year! MICAM is one of my favourite fashion dates of the season in order to visit old friends, discover new companies with new collections and try on a lot of new shoes, always checking new trends. Walking between the stands, interviewing buyers and designers I met beautiful people and saw beautiful shoes.

During this edition I was a guest at some stands and I really want to thank my dear friends from the Japanese Pavilion! They are always great, very kind and it is a great pleasure to spend some time with them during the fair between innovative shoes and a sushi party!

The team of Saint Honorè Paris gave me a warm welcome at their stand with sweet cream puffs, their nice press release placed in an orange envelope and a cute present!! Their shoes continue to be fresh-looking, pretty and cozy! And their staff are very professional and friendly!

About 1.600 italian and foreign companies took part in this big shoe-fair which is one of the most famous in the world. I heard from online newspapers and blogs that the final results were not too thrilling because of the global situation but I am convinced that a lot of companies did their best to show us outstanding products, to get back into the game during these hard times. I am just thinking about the continuous renovation of the Italian company TU OGGI which created an eco-friendly collection made entirely of natural materials.

However, in my opinion, this edition has been interesting if considering these trends of the moment:

- the focus on the values of craftsmanship, the recovery of the tradition of the artisan culture;

the power of the eco-friendly trend, a new form of awareness which is involving more and more companies;

- the marked preference of high quality materials keeping good prices;

- the total look trend with a special focus on good quality shoes (Patrizia Pepe, Desigual..).

RAINY DAYS, RAINY BOOTIES

I am in Italy during these days and the weather suddenly changed in the last couple of days.  I feel cold but not too cold, luckily this means that I don’t have to wear scarfs-hats-gloves! However, the rain has been pouring down for days, so what I really need to wear are my dear rainy booties! I confess that for me it’s very hard to wake up early in the morning and be ready in a few minutes…especially when outside there is a seemingly never-stopping rainstorm…
The question is: how to avoid rain and
 being presentable even with this weather? Hard but not a real problem after all, because today we have lot of chances to appear stylish even with rainy boots at our feet. A considerable number of fashion companies are realizing new lines of shoes in new materials like polyurethane, fur and wool to make your snowy/rainy days sooooo comfortable and diverse. Suits, jeans or mini skirts will be coordinated and trendy at the same time with the right boots, with your favourite color and shape, with heels or embellishments.  Wide choice and different models. Feel free to go wherever you want in a perfect shape without wet feet or dirty shoes! Rain is pleasant sometimes…
