The Italian Edition or how to dress like an icon.




Every single year, when summer starts showing signs of heat I go through the same phase: rewatching Malena, fruits, desire to swim and eat endless amounts of pasta. And every year I repeat to myself that I need to finally take a DNA test and trace my Italian ancestors as I’m an obvious Italian at heart and even in appearance.

But until the DNA test proves me right I’ll have to satisfy myself by adapting a Monica Bellucci style for warm weather. As I’ve gone through so many phases of analysing movies like Malena, La Ciociara, Ostinato Destino, Ieri, Oggi, Domani and many others, I’ve put together a little “Italian Woman” starter pack with a few little key pieces you’ll need to join the wave. Italian women keep it simple but ultra feminine and sexy,  think great underwear, simple but revealing enough dresses either through their cuts or their shapes, minimal jewellery, retro heels.
