Dear Francesca, may I steal your miu miu trousers?
You know, I have a "little" crush on the new resort collection...

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Stefano.


Masters'Hands. Ferdinando Scianna meets Fratelli Rossetti

Craftsman's hands, writers' hands, common people's hands.
Hands that go beyond time, imprinted on the eyes and the heart of those who meet them.
They're the hands captured by Ferdinando Scianna's snapshots that celebrate very intense moments he lived during his life.
Now these images are gathered on Masters'Hands, the sicilian photographer exhibition mounted at Fratelli Rossetti Gallery in Piazza San Carlo, Milan.
The exhibition accompanies the presentation of Genesi, men's lace-up shoe, F/W 2011-12 collection highlight and emblem of that italian craftmade tradition that makes a piece unique. The shoe, hand-painted on natural leather, is marked out by its concealed stitches manufacturing that leaves no traces on the shoe surface.
Some passages of this process are captured in some of the Scianna's snapshots that, besides his past unpublished works, exhibits some pictures recently taken in the Fratelli Rossetti shoe workshops in Parabiago.

Mani che scelgono - Parabiago 2010

I've already seen the exhibit yesterday and I also have been lucky to meet Ferdinando Scianna who, besides being one of the most important personality in the photography world, is a very lovable person. Listening to his anecdotes about his life, experiences and photography was an incomparable emotion.
If you are in Milan these days I recommend you to pop around, it's worth going.

Mani di artigiani, mani di scrittori, mani di gente comune.
Mani che attraversano il tempo e che restano impresse per sempre negli occhi e nel cuore di chi le incontra.
Sono la mani catturate negli scatti di Ferdinando Scianna e che celebrano istanti di grande intensità raccolti all'interno di Masters' Hands, la mostra del maestro siciliano allestita presso la Gallery di Fratelli Rossetti in Piazza San Carlo a Milano.
La mostra accompagna la presentazione di Genesi, la scarpa maschile accessorio di punta per la prossima collezione A/I 201-12 e simbolo di quell'artigianalità tutta italiana che rende un accessorio unico.
La calzatura infatti, dipinta a mano sulla pelle naturale, si distingue per la lavorazione delle sue cuciture nascoste in modo da non lasciare alcun segno sulla superficie.
Alcuni passi di questo processo artigianale sono catturati proprio in alcuni degli scatti di Scianna che, oltre a molti suoi inediti del passato, espone delle foto scattate di recente nei laboratori calzaturieri di Fratelli Rossetti a Parabiago.

Mani che danzano - Jugoslavia 1969

Io ho già visto la mostra ieri e ho avuto anche la fortuna di incontrare di persona il maestro che, oltre ad essere uno dei nomi più importanti della fotografia mondiale, è una persona di grande spessore umano. Ascoltare poi i suoi aneddoti sul mondo della fotografia, sulle sue esperienza passate, sulla vita è stata davvero un'esperienza impareggiabile.
Se in questi giorni siete a Milano vi consiglio di andarci a fare un salto, ne vale proprio la pena.

Backstage Photodiary Pt.1 - Moschino

Vanessa Hegelmaier

I think backstages are the most exciting part of a fashion show.
You can find noise, bustle, strain, waiting and, at the same time, the real essence of fashion universe.
It's also the ideal moment to capture some good snaps of this magic and glamorous world.

So, today I want to show you some pictures taken during the last Fashion Week in Milan.

Hope you appreciate...

Splash of Colour

Holidays are over and I'm reluctantly back to Milan.
I found rain, cold and leaden sky, how sad!
I'm looking forward to spring weather and so, I started to think about summer looks.

I took these pictures some months ago and I think these vitaminic colours are perfect
to bring some brightness during these dark days.

Yes, time has come: let's think about summer outfits!
