Let There Be Stripes...

(Ph. Private)

Striped dress - MARKUS LUPFER
Gladiator sandals - JIMMY CHOO
"Ingrid" Leather Bag - ROBERTO CAVALLI
Ring - BULGARI B01

After Light, Rock and Love... Let There Be Stripes, this seems one of the mantra of the last seasons, where we are assisting to a black and white or multicolored or plus-print stripes invasion. So here I'm to you, as a zealous blogger exploring all the new trends... with my own striped dress playing with black and gold details. My dress has black and gold zippers on the waist matching my Choo Glenys sandals's ones (I'm still in the gladiator mood). The "kinky" bag is in black leather with golden studs on one side and black leather studs on the other (220 studs in total, all of them handcrafted by our wonderful Italian artisans...). Also my ring has black and gold bands escape from this monotony  I chose some retro and romantic earrings by Yvone Christa in filigree. My dress is by Markus Lupfer, the designer renowned for his "humorously subversive approach to daywear". I confess I bought this dress because it matched my Glenys zippers (yah, no joke) two years ago at "Al Duca d'Aosta" a cool multibrand store chain, who is  doing a lot of research in order to offer in their portfolio also some emerging/alternative stylists.

Are you striping too? As you probably noticed, you can find many options this season in classic black and white or multicolor or mixed with other print stripes (here for a detailed report), if you are already fed up with this trend, never mind... you can find many other prints or options this season to satisfy your desire for something new ...

  2. As a Frenchie, I'm all about Breton stripes. And your heels look gorgeous with tights, which can be quite a difficult exercise normally!

    1. Thank you! I was forced into this tights + sandals "virtuosism" by the awful weather of this season, here in the north of Italy...
