Buongiorno, Firenze! It was time to put on all the cute T-shirts and crash around Florence!
While you may think that T-shirt is just one boring outfit, but it’s actually very easy to go with anything, you can just put on whatever you want, whether to make it casual, sporty, sexy, or cute. IED Firenze collaborated with Petite Mademoiselle to do a photo shooting with the T-Shirts that can express one’s mind and statement, with each different style from the girls’ mix and match.
The weather was sunny and just perfect for photo shoot. Designer Sheila Salvato was also with us the whole time, along with the photographer to help us modeling for the brand. The shooting took place in all over Florence, from Duomo to Ponte Vecchio, from streets to streets. Then we ended up at a fabulous boutique named SPACE, where the owner was kind enough to let us use their clothing to go with the T-Shirt. Not only we were shooting for Petite Mademoiselle, the girls also had fun being their very own stylists.
Here are some of the sneak peaks from the backstage of the whole photo shoot. See how we were having fun with just one simple T-Shirt?
We may wonder why is that every time where Cavalli puts out his show, the weather is never perfect; let me tell you, it is because we don’t want to be over-heated by the wildness brought out of the jungle by Roberto Cavalli! That’s why despite of the weather condition, the Roberto Cavalli SS11 RTW was held under a big tent at Arco Della Pace (Arch of Peace), connected the great historical landmark, and the success of Roberto Cavalli’s 40 years of business.
As we all know, Cavalli is never about minimalistic, aside from what seems to be the trends for the fashion shows lately, Cavalli remained his very own unique styles-”the mix of elegance and sex-appeal”. With the croc or snake skin print on top of the tiny pants or tiny jacket, Cavalli does not forget to add some lighter colors into his SS11 collection to balanced the tone.
The Cavalli women may find themselves there, seeing all the glamour coming out of the backdrop jungle. Who wouldn’t be amazed how Cavalli can always capture women’s sexiness and softness and turn them into his design?
The Vintage Selection N.16 took place in Stazione Leopolda in Florence, Italy from 6 – 10 July. There were presented around 40 exhibitors that let you experience something you never feel, being in the past. There was also a bar/restaurant were you could seat and relax with your friends while talking about the clothes you had seen and also there was a spot in which they were selling books about many topics. Standing in front of the clothes, the sunglasses or the jewerly was a big experience because you could see a lot of history or even imagine a woman from the 60′s using some Chanel earings or their symbolic tweed jacket.

Designers and stylistas alike specifically visit this exhibition to draw inspiration from these vintage finds. Some of the most fabulous pieces are not entirely reconstructed, but more so altered through the idea of innovation rather than imitation.
