In order to avoid any kind of remark for gender discrimination I play in advance gaining a lineout - pay attention to my advanced football mastery - so I throw you such pictures, hoping you'll feel properly represented.

Women's Fashion Week is widely open so, regardless your "born identity", everybody has its slice of fame: I found all them quite interesting for different reasons.

I recognised the last one from a picture I saw on The Sartorialist months ago: to me the cunning through which he builds an impeccable look making it perceived as completely natural and result of chance is his trademark, I really like his way of interpreting fashion.

On the other hand, talking about the second one, I noticed his deliberate choice of matching the colors of his shirt with the ones of the bag, questionable.

The first one? I think I'll leave you free to comment.

Do you feel a stricker, a wing, a median..? Never mind there's a role for everybody!

I really love details, I usually seek them in every aspect of my life, could it be a great novel, the one with long descriptions, a neighborhood which seems a world itself or even a place full of people. Sometimes watching a movie through one of those huge modern televisions I get angry for not being able to catch all the details.

Ok, let's stop turning around the point. I'm telling you that because I know, such outfits might seem just extravagant or not daily wearable to the most: if you think so, try to look at each item separately, decomposing the whole, because, to me, they are all really lovely.

Personally speaking I find them both delight for my eyes in their entire, I like colors, geometric patterns and flowers, there are so many details that catch my attention that I would like to see many more like them everyday!

This picture represents the most amazing moment
of my "short Milan Fashion Week" experience. 

I don't know if you are interested as I am in street style fashion blogs, but rely on me, this man is the most talented and gifted communicator through images of our "blogger era", the first one able to understand that fashion is not a game that starts and ends within its industry but lives and breathes on people's skin, which wear clothes on the streets.

I saw him outside Fendi Fashion Show and I could not believe my eyes: he was taking some pictures before getting inside the show when - to my surprise - my brain ordered to my mouth to call him. He has been really helpful and kind when I asked him if I could take a picture.

When I look at him I see a single entity combined with his camera, just like a kind of modern bionic superhero, fantastic. For the record, if I succeeded in capturing your interest his website il www.thesartorialist.com. Check it out!

I know, people always say I really enjoyed it even though I wasn't entirely part of it, I must admit, it sounds like mere consolation.

But this time has been different, the atmosphere outside Fendi Fashion Show, yesterday at 12 am along Via Sciesa, was so engaging that I felt like on the real front row with all major guests walking just a few meters away from me, unbelievable.

Cars with no one sitting on the front passenger seat were flowing relentlessly forming a long serpentine: pretentious guests didn't dare to get off the car if not in front of the entrance, successful Fashion Editors came running down the street making their way through the crowd not to be late.

These are some of the pictures I took despite the confusion caused by unbelief. As I said yesterday, on the next posts I'll show you all the pictures of common people.

For now I hope I've passed on how I felt: if the details are not enough close your eyes and imagine car horns honking - this time there has been a collision - people warning the arrival of special guests and the sound of continuos shots. There you are.

As promised I'll post some of the pictures I took today at Piazza Oberdan during Gucci's double fashion show, which has literally paralyzed the traffic of cars, trams and buses, for the sake of poor security forces.

Crosswalks, roadways and rails are just meaningless signs on the ground for the fashion crowd, the only thing that matters is be there and get noticed, regardless of the risk of being invested. People make pictures and expect pictures, there's no one like the other so the sources for inspiration are limitless.

When I arrived there, I do not hide it, I was a bit scared because I tought God how can I deal with all this, I'm not a professional photographer, but then I realized that it doesn't matter, there are so many details that everyone has the chance to capture some of them!

For the moment I'll post just some pictures of the most famous guests, obviously there were many more, as former Fashion Editor of Vogue France Carine Roitfeld, Vogue America's Hamish Bowles and blogger Bryan Boy. In the next few days I'll post all the pictures of "common people", which to me are rather the less common ones. Stay tuned!

Hi!! I'm sorry I haven't post anything for a while, I've been busy, but I intend to recover in the next few days.

As you can see from the map I posted, there are many interesting red spots widespread here and there which mark the locations of some fashion shows that will take place tomorrow and on Thursday: I'll be in Milan just for a couple of days unfortunately, but I'll do my best to be your eyes and your ears outside the shows and throughout the city.

Since I still do not own the gift of ubiquity I'll probably choose some of them but I hope I'll come across something unexpected to capture with my camera. Stay tuned!

In one of the very first post I wrote, the second one I guess, I talked about the limited and a little bit unconventional collection The Very Best of Versace for H&M, leaving you with a question: who will be the next big stylist ready to reach the great mass?

Now I can give you the answer ( that for the record has been announced by the end of last year ) and much more: this time the choice fell on Consuelo Castiglioni's fashion house Marni.

If I had to describe her works with just three words I'd say nontrivial, you never know which combination of colors and fabrics will be proposed, refined, thanks to their ever new geometric prints and eventually funny!

As you may understand I really like them, above all for their shapes that are structured on the body. The project involves the contribution of talented director Sofia Coppola, who shot this escapist video commercial in  Marrakech, a full dream team!

If you are curious look at the video and the backstage scenes, if you find something of your taste you just need to wait until March 8th. I'll be there too.

Let me introduce this new post mentioning a series of numbers: 9:15, -3, 270, 2. Am I going crazy? Not yet (I hope so).

This morning my freelance reporter alter ego made me get up early and reach University one hour in advance because there was a task to accomplish: record the opening of the new Prada store in the city center.

Obviously it wasn't open yet, it was 9:15 a.m., there was just me, some street sweepers and a couple of sleepy passers-by and, if I forgot to mention, the temperature was -3 degrees Celsius (frozen snow was falling down).

Anyway I took some pictures and looked at the newcomer, there was a cd store before: the building is classic and the frontage of the shop respects its sobriety alternating showcases that seem to frame the clothes on display. 270 mq distributed on two floors designed by Roberto Baciocchi, which, to me, gave a measured but sophisticated touch. Not to forget, at the opening Prada as also renewed its partnership with the FAI, undertaking the redevelopment of Santa Giustina Abbey of Padua. Have a nice tour!
