Open from 7.45am until 6.45pm every day, the nursery is available for Tod's workers to drop off their children to be looked after while they toil.

Daniele Michetti started out with interior design but then chose fashion to design something made into a whole with the image of the purchaser. He has worked for small businesses like Santoni and Raparo, and for big brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Prorsum. For him ”accessories are defining. They are the foundation of the aesthetic construction.”
Michetti won the "Who is on Next" contest for acessories in 2009. His designs have a feel for minimalism with an extra dose of what could be called a mature whimsy.
The tool for success is creating shoewear, to Daniele Michetti, shoes are intimate and personal objects: "close to our skin, and to our soul." Turning that belief into a strong yet beautiful fall collection, Michetti presents intricately woven leather, snakeskin and cutaway details that are sure to please any woman.
For his fall 2013 collection, Michetti draws inspiration from the boudoir and from the absolute and unambiguous femininity of lingerie. That doesn’t preclude the appearance of bold and beautiful takes on women’s smoking slippers and flat boots, which garner equal attention alongside the corset-strapped thigh high boots and woven leather heels.

To the same urban target group Santoni proposes the new A45 sneakers: young and stylish, this line lets these people lend expression to their style and trend-oriented way of life combining together performance, comfort and outstanding details like the embossed 45 logo on the side and the vintage effect on the sole.

Cesare Paciotti presented in Paris the new collection Spring Summer 2014. Nine main themes suggested for the Cesare Paciotti Spring Summer 2014 Women’s Collection. Nine is the exclusive number!
http://fashionpopqueen.com was there.
Greeted by a doorman, I knew I was truly at the right place for the eponymous label, Cesare Paciotii, and their Spring/Summer 2014 presentation. A luxury shoe brand created by Italian designer, Cesare Paciotti, the brand thrives on exclusivity and craftsmanship. So what better location to hold their SS14 presentation than the high- end, Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris, France? Capturing the core-essence of the brand, the chosen setting had gold chandeliers and 17th and 18th century portraiture throughout the entire lobby. Even as you entered the room of the presentation, you are greeted by two fashion publicists dressed in the usual all-black attire, and a bar on your right filled champagne and finger-foods such as small vanilla cupcakes.
Making my way around the room, in an effort to try to zone out all the French people around me, I started to take a closer look at the shoes presented throughout the collection. The props surrounding each block of shoes elevated the message of glamour Cesare Paciotti actively portrays. Noticeably, there was a wide-range of shoes presented throughout the collection; making me believe that Cesare Paciotti catered to every woman, no matter her personal style or taste.
In addition to the wide variety of shoes in Paciotti’s SS14 collection, the sense of versatility quickly struck me as I continued to snap photographs. ...
Santoni presents a beautiful dedication of craftmanship in this film by award-winning multi-media French artist Bruno Aveillan. The film captures the manual dexterity, dedication, extended timelines, and craftsmanship of the Italian brand. "Bruno Aveillan is an artist with a unique gaze. He is able to be both penetrating while light, both analytical while poetic. We chose him for reasons of pure aesthetic empathy and he managed to surprise us with a result that was able to capture the true essence of our artisanal savoir-faire," says Giuseppe Santoni.
Marco Zanini's appointment as creative director of the recently revived house of Schiaparelli is finally official, WWD reports. Rumors of his hiring began back in April, but neither he nor the brand confirmed until today. He joins Schiaparelli from Rochas, where he worked for five years after stints at Versace, Halston, and Dolce & Gabbana;
Founded by Elsa Schiaparelli in the late twenties, the fashion house has been defunct since 1954, and was eventually bought by Italian fashion magnate Diego Della Valle.
Marco Zanini's first collection for Schiaparelli will show during the Paris couture collections this coming January. He built his debut collection around the simple, feminine slip dress, and has since become known for creating fantastical but easy-to-wear separates like boxy, fur-trimmed brocade coats and candy-striped trousers. It'll be fun to see what he does with the house, which is steeped in tradition but hasn't produced a single garment in over five decades. [...]
This is Dark Show: very feminine with a sensual style.
We like to define it the «Dark - Romantic» collection. This is Dark Show: very feminine with a sensual style. The absolute novelty is the Snow version with ice - color tones and a "scratch" texture with black leather trimmings.
From the uniforms ideas for every day
Here’s another piece of the fashion puzzle for the cold season: the camouflage. The designers continue to steal ideas to military uniforms, peering this time also in the corps of the navy and air force.
The military style, fashion’s evergreen, renews itself, moving away from the traditional color to approach innovative ones. The use of valuable fabrics gives an interpretation even more chic. The garments are practical and simple, almost oversized. There is room for sneakers, but especially for more aggressive and resistant military print boots to match with jeans, but also with casual or classic pants.
Even the accessories are camou: from socks, to belts, to the bow tie. If the military fantasy is inspired by the need to blend in, in the urban jungle, with this print, you won’t go unnoticed!!!

Numerous pieces of her collection contain soft rose. Moreover she named Gio Ponti, Alberto Burri and great Italian design as inspirations. Traditional Italian values were interpreted in a new, innovative way and shown with a modern twist.
