Paris Ricci, Perugia, Italy


When you are looking for elegance, you go to Paris Ricci. It’s as simple as that. The clothing store in the historic centre of Perugia has a huge collection of those typical italian garments, that the whole world strives for.

One look at the owners and their staff is enough. They’re definitely in the know. Paris Ricci sells tenue de ville, cocktail dresses, jeans and casual wear, complete with all the necessary accessories. Necklaces, evening bags, shoes, scarves, ties, hats, you name it… they sell it. And in the unlikely event that they don’t have it… they can probably help you in one of their other stores (Paris Loft among others).

Brands include 7For all Mankind, Etro, Incotex, Mauro Grifoni, P.A.R.O.S.H., Isabel Marant, Giorgio Armani, Comme de Garçons and more! Bring your wallet and some serious "plastic"... because it's practically impossible to walk out without any purchases...

Their customer base consists of the local jetset, gypset, as well as many international celebrities... During the Umbria Jazz festival a lot of big stars drop by to get an exclusive stage outfit!

Shoes by Nº21

Check out these amazing shoes... designed by Alessandro Dell'Acqua for his brand Nº21. Unfortunately they're not for sale yet, in fact they're part of the Spring-Summer 2014 collection.

We're going to see a lot of embellishments next summer: glitter & glamour, rhinestones, beading, embroideries and more. These shoes fit in perfectly with that upcoming trend.

Menswear... as good as it gets!

Italians as well Englishmen have always been known for their great sartorial skills and style. That was until the Asian invasion... now we can easily add the Japanese to the best dressed men on the planet.

Classic dressing is back. Double breasted jackets, suspenders, bow ties, Panama hats and more. A bit like men's fashion in the "Roaring Twenties". This time around though, personality should be added to the mix.

All the überstylish men shown here, were visitors of Pitti Uomo 84, the place to be for the fashion crowd as well as all the major streetstyle photographers (The Sartorialist, Tommy Ton, Nam, Guerre, etc.).

Today's Inspiration... cherries

Cherries just scream summer! That's why I like them so much... the taste, the colour, the shininess...  pure perfection. The same goes for the Louis Vuitton cherry bag collection! Too bad it was a limited edition.

People... at SuperDuper Hats

SuperDuper hats is one of my favourite brands when it comes to hats! Here you see one of the three designers, Ilaria (Matteo and Veronica are not on the photo) and some of their friends... all wearing SuperDuper hats!!! I love their looks and their hats, don't you?

By the way, I'm not the only one. SuperDuper hats won the "Who's on Next? Uomo" 2013 award during the Pitti Uomo trade show in Florence, Italy. "Who's on Next? Uomo" is a project sponsored by Pitti Immagine Uomo, L’Uomo Vogue and AltaRoma, to promote new talents in menswear.

Catch of the Day... Eskimo earrings!

How cute are these Eskimo (or Inuit) earrings? I love Native American jewelry... so when I laid my eyes on these cuties, I couldn't resist buying them!

Earrings bought at Rio Grande:

Pink glitter shoes

I found these shoes on sale at Paul Warmer, one of my favourite shoe stores! I couldn't believe my luck... they still had my size! Totally over the top of course, but hey... you only live once, right?

What do think of the glitter and metallics trend, that can be found everywhere this summer? Would you wear it during the day? Or keep it aside for a night out on the town?
