Ciao Fashion darlings,
As we navigate through the fickle days of Spring many of us can’t help but daydream and look toward the warmer days of Summer. For many, the Summer season means Vacation and Travel time. One Style at a Time normally brings you posts on Fashion & trends, but today the subject is geared toward the inspiration of Travel & Style. Many Fashionistas automatically think New York or Paris when it comes to the most Fashion driven cities but today the country of choice is a personal favorite…ITALY.
For as long as I can remember Italy has always been a dream vacation destination and I hope to visit one day. It’s no mystery that this beautiful country is so rich in Art, Culture, Food, Wine & Spirits and of course Fashion. Italy brings us the world renown Milan Fashion Week that include master designers like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Versace among many others. When it comes to Film, many actresses have lit up the screen and raced the pulse of many with their timeless beauties and sex appeal (see examples below). Italy is known for it’s History and Art that no matter what city you decide to visit you are guaranteed an enriching experience.
For the movie lovers, this past April a new Woody Allen film premiered quite successfully in Italy called “To Rome With Love” starring Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin among others (See trailer below). The US limited release is dated for this summer on June 22, 2012 (perfect timing, my Birthday). I hope you enjoy this post as it is a glimpse of a few of the Italian elements that serve as Inspiration for this fellow Fashionista.
