During my most recent visit in Milan, at the White, I decided to wear the black dress that I am showing you in this picture. Why?
Because I do not think long beards, colourful socks, short, rolled-up male pants, woolly hats with a veil, things that have been thrown together in a hap-hazard manner, just so that you can appear in some street style photos, are bearable any longer.
I believe that real elegance consists in feeling at ease with your own style, which may even consist in putting things together in a hap-hazard manner, but because you really like them and the represent you, and not because this is how it works outside of runway shows. You can even wear only grey and black, as long as those colours go well with your skin tone, and not just because some blogger is only wearing minimalist outfits.
Anyhow, these are some of fashion’s contradictions. On the one hand, behind an outfit there is often a study (and when there is one, you can see it). It’s a study of proportions, of fabrics, of a brand’s history, and on the other hand, sometimes, there is nothing but the desire to stand out.
The outfit that I have put on today is by Bonsui, a brand that I particularly like, because of its refined fabrics and finishings that have been made according to the book. I decided to match it with heels by Aldo and a vintage fur jacket. I hope you like it!
