Pitti June 2011/ Streetstyle

Last week, Pitti Fair turned Florence once more into the most fashionable place on earth, proving most of all that men can actually be well dressed. Well I never doubted but Pitti is a rare occasion where totally well-dressed men are e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e to be seen! After a while you get used to this sight and when Pitti is over, Florence seems once again average normal! What a pity!

Of course not only men visit the Fair. Many beautiful ladies were present as well! The three ladies that you see in the picture above were according to me the most interesting each one for a particular reason! Lady no1 for being brave enough to match stripes and gingham print in bold red (hmmm, I predict a trend here), lady no2 for her beautiful scarf-turned-belt and lady no3 for the inspiring colorblocking!

Alessandra, LP33.3 and Dimitris

These days my mail is full of look books -some of the current season, some others already of the Fall collections.

As Florence is burning hot, I prefer to not show you yet jackets and heavy fabrics. Instead as you are already familiar with Alessandra Modarelli, LP33.3 and Dimitris Petrou, I decided to unite Italy, Australia and Greece under one post and show you my most favorite pieces of their current Summer collections!

BIANCOCO' is the new summer collection of designer Alessandra Modarelli and is consisted of knitted white cotton. In the first picture of course you get to see one more amazing turban! The cardi is perfect for the summer nights in some Greek island!
LP33.3 comes from Australia as I have already mentioned in the past! Their clothes may seem simple but I find their lines and inspirations always interesting! For SS11 they got inspired by the work of Australian artist Rosalie Gascoigne and the erotic Shunga woodblock prints of 18th century Japan.

For the end I kept one of my most favorite Greek designers, Dimitris Petrou. Two months ago he presented his SS11 collection and it may seem as if it was presented too late for some of you but actually this way is much more efficient for the Greek clientele. The collection under the theme Theros, was consisted of vintage scarves, jean and leather mixed with other fine materials. These two looks were my personal favorites but I would love to wear some of the garments that the designer designed for men as well!

You tag your friends on facebook, why not start tagging all the clothes inside your closet? That way you'll have a virtual wardrobe ready for you to pick your next -and maybe forgotten?- picks and others will get inspired by your closet!

Tag.your.closet is Greek, it's brand new and it's a great place to discover how the Greek style bloggers-and not only- like to get dressed, find their new purchases, the exact prices and sometimes even a link that will lead you directly on buying that t-shirt that was love at first sight!

Well, it's also a great place to find exactly what I wore on that LuisaviaRoma party I attended some days ago!

Have fun and start tagging!

LuisaviaRoma party/ Museo La Specola

So, as promised here's the post of yesterday's Luisa via Roma "Firenze4Ever" party! This time it didn't take place at Luisa via Roma store, but instead at the Museum of Zoology and Natural History, La Specola.

To match with the place, the dress code was "Animalier" and it was the first time that I had to attend a theme-event. Girls of course proved how much they still love the leopard print trend in everything! Leopard dresses, shoes, bags, shirts, skirts and belts could be seen everywhere and men in order to be as fashionable used much more their fantasy with leopard bow ties and pocket squares!

The event started with a live dancing performance that reminded me a lot of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's dream with the dancers mingling and dancing among guests throughout the night!

Later on the party continued on the open terrace of the Museum and of course it was a pleasant surprise for me as Florence is full of hidden gardens that sometimes you have no way of discovering as most of them are private!

The blogger-friends of the evening were Amy from Sea Sage, Fosco Giulianelli from The Fashionist (-What is an Italian doing in Sweden? -There's no better place for a man that loves blondes =D ), Zahra from Trendy Zahra and Chrysa from Stories and Sequins that to my surprise is Greek and was the winner of Luisa's contest for the participation in the Style Lab!

Among the others oh-so-famous bloggers she got to see first the Autumn/Winter collections that Luisa via Roma will be featuring next season, style her looks and of course get photographed in them!
Check her blog for the pictures and of course congratulate her for winning.

Not pictured but also seen yesterday night, was another blogger that comes from Greece and currently lives in Florence! Katia Fourtouni from Style on Book.
SuperDuper hats designers Veronica and Ilaria were once more present at the party and I had to take one more pic of them and their lovely hats!
The Oriental beauty above seen, caught everyone's attention with her Burberry studded trench coat and amazing make up and long earrings! As for me, I chose to wear a vintage white silk skirt with an H&M body and match it with light pink accessories!

LuisaviaRoma party/ Call it animalier

I'll confess my new unhealthy habit: that of constantly forgetting my camera at home and that of constantly being on the run! Call me a bad blogger and I'll turn my head but that was until tonight.

Because tonight I have one good reason to put on my forgotten heels and walk around the streets of Florence in my brand new blogger/animalier-inspired outfit! Luisa via Roma has invited me once again to the closing dinner blogger's party and in less than an hour I'll go and enjoy my time with fellow bloggers of the globe (BryanBoy this time included!).

...expect more soon and in the meantime enjoy again the pictures from the last party here!
