A hat is an accessory that has covered the head of people from every century since the egyptian age. According to me, it's the most important accessory. The hat has been worn by all social classes, from farmers to the nobles, until you get to the Greek gods, sometimes depicted with this accessory.
Over the centuries artisans have specialized in creating hats that look like more and more, as well as a wonderful design object, an artwork. During the nineteenth century hats were an essential icon of elegance. Nowadays, hats still are a very important item of clothing.

Il cappello è un accessorio che ha coperto la testa di milioni di persone, fin dell'era egiziana.  A mio parere, è l'accessorio più importante. Il cappello è stato indossato da tutte le classi sociali: dai contadini ai nobili, fino ad arrivare alle divinità greche,  a volte raffigurati anche loro con copricapi. 
nel corso dei secoli gli artigiani si sono specializzati nella creazione di cappelli che assomigliano sempre di più, oltre che ad uno splendido oggetto di design, un'opera d'arte. Nel corso dell'ottocento i cappelli sono stati un indispensabile simbolo di eleganza. È comunque indubbio che, anche oggi, siano un importante capo di abbigliamento.

The extreme sensuality of being dressed like him

I really love wearing men's clothes: they're very smart, confortable and, you know, sexy. I think unisex is the new frontier of fashion and probably in few years many emerging designers will create a single collection for men and women. Here there are some street style pics about it, I hope you'll enjoy them.

Mi piace veramente molto indossare capi maschili: sono molto eleganti, comodi e, diciamocelo, sexy. Io credo che il concetto di unisex sia destinato a diventare la nuova frontiera della moda e che, probabilmente, nei prossimi anni molti stilisti emergenti sceglieranno di creare un'unica collezione che si possa adattare sia all'uomo che alla donna. Ecco a voi alcuni scatti street style (e non solo!) che a mio parere rispecchiano l'universalità del vestire "unisex".

Grazie Ottavio

The fashion label Missoni was founded by Ottavio "Tai" Missoni and his wife in 1953, exactly sixty years ago. According to me, Missoni has always been the king of patterns and a real italian pride. He was the only one that have always mixed different colours, textures and fabrics. We must not forget that ottavio was not just a fashion designer, but also a soldier, a father (he never recovered since when his son disappeared in the ocean), and even an Olympic athlete. Ottavio died today, 9th May 2013, he was ninety-two. If Superheroes existed, probably he would have been one of them.

Let's talk about... tattoos!

There once were tattos. No one charming prince would ever had one because only pirates and prisoners  got them. Princesses always felt in love with pirates, so also princes began having some tattos. That's probably why tattoos are so popular now.
(P.s. pricesses, princes, pirates and maybe some prisoners lived happily forever after.)

Tattoos are, in addition to being a great way to pick up girls (and boys too), an amazing way to comunicate something. They always have an important meaning, even if somethimes it is only artistic.

the opportunity to transform our bodies in an artwork is surely fantastic, but the problem is that they're forever! Sometimes, when my mind is thinking about getting a tattoo, I try to imagine me at sixty years old, with that amazing tattoo on my wrinkled skin. Needless to say, I have always changed idea!
But now I discovered the opportunity to get a temporary tattoo, such as those I used to found in packaged snacks when I was a child.

Here there are two sites where you can buy them:

What's your opinion about these new tattoos?

Worldwide fashion

Have you always thought that only London, Paris, Milan and New York were fashion capitals? Well, forget everything. The interest of the fashion has focused in cities like Dubai, Copenhagen, Kolkata, Berlin, Tokyo and Hong kong. This happened thanks to globalization, which fortunately did not compromise the differences between the different cities.

Rule #1: fashion is fun-filled

Fashion has always been a game for me. As a child I used to dress up my barbie with ribbons or fabric pieces. I often secretly used to took my mother's fashion magazines and then hid myself somewhere in my home, looking at all those sparkling dresses and beautiful models.
Perhaps it is for this reason that I cannot stand when someone, knowing my love for fashion, stick up his nose. Fashion doesn't mean ruthless competition or anorexic models. In Italian, for example, moda comes from the latin word modus, that means way. That is the way of being of each of us, which is inevitably also reflected in the way we dress.

Les Turbans: the new etno-chic style

I have always considered turbans and scarves as something extraordinary. With them you can completely change your look into something very chic, without forgetting that they can be very practical to tie your hair up and protect your head in the summer heat.
There are many ways to wear them: as a diva or a desert princess, you just have to choose.
