The first collection designed by Alessandroo Michele for Gucci autumn/winter 2015 look clearly inspired by the aesthetics of  Wes Anderson's characters. Models with eyeglasses, furs very Margot Tenenbaum, beautiful the color palette (olive, rose, burgundy), I like the men's sized pants, the wide pleated skirts, the military coat and the discreet trasparences make milder by flat shoes.
Awful shoes, I don't think hairy shoes will ever be a trend.
A different sexy woman, less show off than women of Frida Giannini and Tom Ford,
the highly sexed Gucci vamp was replaced by a studious looking geek.

The most stylish at the Oscar night was definitely him: Edward "Eddie" Redmayne.
Edward is an English actor, singer and thanks to his boyish charms he's also a model.
 Oscar for his role as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, he is known also for his roles in Les Misérables and My Week with Marilyn.
 Having modelled for luxury British brand Burberry alongside Cara Delevingne and featuring on Vanity Fair's best dressed list in 2012 .
This year Eddie Redmayne has topped GQ's annual best dressed man list.
His ultra-cool look is quintessentially British.

June Browne is an Australian actress and photographer.
She met photographer Helmut Newton in 1947, June was working as an actress under the surname Brunell and had answered an ad for some modelling work at Helmut's studio. The couple were married the following year.
June's work as a photographer began in 1970 when she stepped-in for her husband who had fallen ill. Helmut was scheduled to photograph a model for an ad for Gitanes cigarettes when he came down with the flu. Unable to contact the model to cancel their appointment, Helmut gave his wife a quick lesson in photography and she photographed the model later that same day. June's chosen pseudonym, Alice Springs, came from the Australian town by the same name.
Working first as a fashion photographer and later as a portraitist
Throughout her photographic career, June Newton continued to work as her husband's art-director, acting both as editor and curator of Helmut's work.

During the fashion week in Rome I finally took the opportunity to go to see the exhibition "Bellissima Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968" at the museum Maxxi.
 From the spectacular creations that lit up the grand balls and foyers of the theaters, accompanied by the glittering expressions of the finest jewelry, to the restrained elegance of the cocktail dresses; from the rigorous black and white graphic look, to the chromatic explosion so typical of the 1960s; from the inventions made for the actresses of the so-called Hollywood on the Tiber, to the results of the sophisticated formal research that was the fruit of the intense collaboration between couturiers and artists.
 There are a few dresses on display, and especially do not understand how they were chosen, only a few are really beautiful. But most of all I wish it close to clothes there was also a photographic record of those who had worn and in that occasion (e.g. a picture of Jackie Kennedy visit Cambodia in '68 with the green one-shoulder gown by Valentino).
Museo Maxxi Rome until May 3, 2015

Mia Le Journal is a magazine about fashion, photography, art, music and cinema.
 Each article delves into the notion of intimacy as a condition of unique physical and emotional closeness of human beings and its affectivity.
Mia Le Journal is a project born in Italy, that immediately influences its surrounding and allows itself to be contaminated by important collaborations with artists from all over the world. Is placed in a position detached from the dictates and the impositions of the world at fashion magazines, looking more like a fashion-book. Relased twice every year, gives its interpretation, with a precise and personal view of the surrounding. A project born of a group of artists fiercely motivated by a common desire for creativity and the search for authenticity.
 The magazine was presented in Rome, Milan, Tokyo and Paris, and you can buy it online at or  in Rome from Degli Effetti or from Alessandra Giannetti's boutique, in Paris by OFR, Colette and Merci.
