There are two things about Italy one can’t ignore – Italian food and Italian fashion.  We are obsessed with all things Italian and always felt that at our core we are true Italian girls. Italian women seem to have fashion and taste imprinted in their DNA and we have always wanted to emulate that gene expression – the elegance, the grace and the focus on femininity.

We started this blog to express the inner Italian flair inside of us that was bursting to come out and strike a pose!  Recently San Francisco has also been showing off its love for all things Italian – with the opening of boutiques like Marni, Valentino and now Dolce and Gabbana.  We decided to create a cinematic fashion editorial that pays homage to old school Italian aesthetics in the modern setting of San Francisco’s Maiden Lane.

The intersection of Italian film and fashion was our initial source of inspiration.  Who isn’t drawn to the allure of classic Italian cinema, especially iconic films like L’avventura and La Dolce Vita that showcase the Italian people’s creativity, culture and highest-quality craftmanship.  When we were scouting locations on Maiden Lane we had a major lightbulb moment when we saw the bright red neon sign of the Romper Room beckoning us to channel Wes Anderson’s short film for Prada “Castello Cavalzcanti”(see below).  The film is set in Italy in 1955 and focuses on actor Jason Schwartzman’s interactions with the locals, following his car crash, at a glowing caffe rife with the warm and muted colors that have become Anderson’s trademark.

Valentina stuck to her signature comfort with an elegant black, classic coat, which falls loosely around the body and can feel like a warm hug on a crisp winter day. The peek-a-boo leopard print shorts add a subtle but sexy element of the timeless but modern Italian Woman.

Francesca indulged her inner ‘Italian aristocrat meets Sicilian village girl look which centers on a 50s full patterned wool skirt hinting at both romance and intrigue.  She paired it with a bright, silky blouse for a pop of color and dynamic patent leather booties.

  • Love this! I saw il capitale umano (human capital) at a film festival and loved it. I’d highly recommend it if you’re looking for a suspenseful Italian drama 🙂
