Bringing Italian Design to Paris
I may live in Paris but the mystical world of Italian maximalism is something that has always deeply inspired me when it comes to igniting my love for all things fashion. Think designers like Alessandro Michele and Donatella Versace paired with a Renaissance-like frivolity and you’ve got yourself the perfect recipe for my inner fashionista’s dream come true.
Fashion for me is at it’s most awe-inspiring when it brings something unique and even sublime into the world as we know it. When I first discovered the whimsical designs of Vivetta Ponti, I immediately became utterly enamoured by the the surreal universe that she creates in each of her dreamy collections. The designer evokes all aspects of abstract art in her creations from impressionistic paintings to poetry and even the sentimental aesthetic of old Disney movies to name but a few. The fact that she has the power to bring such art into her designs is truly amazing and when I saw that one of her pieces was up for grabs recently on Depop, I just had to grab it and make it my own.
Today’s post is all about how I thrifted a designer coat and why it has such a special place in my heart being from one of my favourite designers.
