Che bella! Whether you are in Florence, Naples, Rome or Milan – in Italy, almost everyone is dressed perfectly. From the little kiddos wearing polo shirts with rolled up collars to the cute Nonnas, who are even wearing their most beautiful aprons when cooking for La Famiglia. The Italians know exactly how to win that fashion game. However, they do it in their very own kind of way: they have fun! This is definitely a reason to get inspired.
Why Italy Is A Fashion Country
La Moda– when it comes to Italy’s fashion heritage, it’s not that easy to find a correct point of time for when it all started. Actually, the history already began in the 11thcentury and had its first boom especially in Florence during the Renaissance. But let’s not go back that far for the moment. A look at the present makes it just as clear how diverse and unique Italian fashion truly is.
Maybe you first think of the colorful world of Dolce & Gabbana, where you can find the whole range of flowers, ornaments and glitter. Maybe you first think of the classier world of Emporio Armani. Maybe it’s the crazy and freaky world of Moschino or the romantic and dreamy world of Valentino. The sportswear world though, is likely to be not the first to come into your mind. Although it has quite a lot to offer: Ellesse, Kappa, Superga and Fila are just a few examples to mention here.
Sporty, Floral, Italian
Especially for Fila, it has been a brilliant season so far. It seems as the Italian label, which has its headquarters in South Korea since 2007, has taken the full advantage of the 90s revival trend. From the typical white dad sneakers to the red-blue-white striped training suits and retro headbands – Fila’s signature pieces have been perfectly adapted into today’ fashion world. Nevertheless, this wouldn’t be a “Do You Dress Italian?”-Post, if there wasn’t any fun!
After all, it doesn’t mean the whole outfit has to be in a sporty and Retro look, only because the shoes do. It only gets interesting by adding in some contrasts: a happy flower dress, a playful knit sweater and some red sunglasses in a slightly freaky 60s look. To even increase the fun factor, why not wear your headband around the ankle once? Apparently, it’s quite simple to give your wardrobe an Italian update. It might get even easier with some pasta. Let’s give it a try and buon appetito!
