Diego Della Valle and the Art of Wearing Things the "Wrong" Way

Diego Della Valle and the Art of Wearing Things the "Wrong" Way | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Some guys shop with patience of Job, waiting months and diligently scouring sale sections for just the right deal. On the other hand, there are those guys that regularly pour out a small fortune just to look like they found their clothes in a dumpster. Most of us probably fall somewhere in between, splurging and scrimping from time to time. And then, there’s Diego Della Valle, a man that simply dresses like pure opulence. Of course, it helps that Della Valle is the CEO of a little company called Tod’s footwear so he pretty much dresses up to his title, but when it comes to Della Valle, as with so many other Italian icons (a pack lead that’s lead by Gianni Agnelli who helped elevate Tod’s to another level when he wore them back in the day) how you wear it is often far more important than what you wear. In fact, Della Valle’s clothes themselves are not particularly remarkable (although he is a great template for proper fit, particularly for bigger guys) mainly focusing on blue shirts, navy or grey jackets, washed denim and of course Tod’s.
Aside from how he carries himself underneath this uniform, what I love about Della Valle’s style is that he often wears things outside of their intended purpose. What I mean by this is that Della Valle seems to love the unconventional add-on, taking a basic piece and re-imagining it by placing it somewhere else within an outfit. Now I’m not talking about going off the deep end, such the absolutely heinous Eldredge knot which I can’t believe I’m even mentioning right now, but Della Valle’s “wrong” combinations actually work in my mind. First off is the “scarf-as-a-tie” look, which admittedly only a man of Della Valle’s stature (and I mean that socially, economically, and physically) really could pull off, but nonetheless it’s something that I can’t help but admire. The way Della Valle wears it, with a raised collar and a solid scarf tied loosely to the front in a manner that is brash, but not too ostentatious. It reminds me of an elderly man I saw a few months who had tucked his scarf into his cardigan as if to say “I don’t care what you think, it’s my damn scarf after all.”
As I said, this look clearly isn’t for everyone, I certainly probably won’t be giving it a shot for at least a few decades, but Della Valle’s other atypical inclination is one that you will likely see me wearing this spring, and that’s the “sweater-as-a-scarf.” Once reserved for eighties preppy elitists (and the painfully confused bloggers that worship them) Della Valle’s version takes a neutral colored sweater, probably cashmere considering the number of zeroes in his bank account, and tosses it on top of a suit. It’s Della Valle’s go-to kit for soccer (or football if you happen to be from the man’s homeland) matches, proving that it’s an easy way to tone-down the formality of suit as you step outside the office. Of course, we can all throw sweaters over us shoulders and emulate Della Valle, but keep in mind, he has the bravado of a billionaire on his side, so tread lightly out there.

The streets of fashion: Giorgio Grati, Spring Summer 2012

The streets of fashion: Giorgio Grati, Spring Summer 2012 | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Not just a look back in the retro style, but the elegance of sophisticated Ladies in pure  Giorgio Grati style.  Four the inspirational themes dedicated to the streets of fashion, symbol of the international elegance. The first theme, inspired by Old Europe, is divided between Avenue Montaigne and Bond Street, for an eccentric style and a touch of humour for a sporty woman, yet with a refined look. Via Montenapoleone, for a woman with a rigorous style severe but not serious, reassuring and sometimes snobby wearing aristocratic and precious dresses. In Fifth Avenue we meet the glamour, dresses and suits that are inspired to a vintage look, with casual dresses perfect from morning to evening.

Le Marche brand Dondup opens first flagship store | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Italian jeanswear label Dondup has opened its first flagship store – Casa Dondup - in Milan’s Via Sirtori 34. This unique 400-sqm-concept store offers the whole men’s and women’s jeanswear and Dondup fashion collections as well as new designers' projects, not necessarily tied to the fashion world.

The store is decorated with carved iron elements, white vintage furniture and interiors, and is devised in order to present a cosy and feel-at-home ambiance as well as a restaurant on the second floor plus spaces for reading and listening to music.

The company which was founded by designer Manuela Mariotti and CEO Massimo Berloni, is not planning to open a whole series of stores according to this new concept. Their future aim is rather to focus on testing new ideas and concepts through this creative shopping destination.

Fornarina S/S 2012 Lookbook

Fornarina S/S 2012 Lookbook | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Fornarina goes absolutely skinny for this coming spring and summer. My favorite look here is the rolled up jeans with the fly-buttons showing paired with a lighter wash denim shirt. But the black denim overall (below) is a very close second. Usually overalls are done in a more slouchy, un-sexy kind of style, which is just not at all the case here. You can use this with a different kind of belt, depending on your mood, and I also suggest some high top platform sandals if you want to be more comfortable walking around in summer.
