WIW Firenze Day 3
Although I packed light, knowing in advance the temperatures are unforgiving in Firenze, I couldn’t resist throwing a suit in the mix. After screening through my wardrobe, the obvious choice became this unstructured cotton/linen version by Boglioli, which has been in heavy rotation as of lately. However, the focus here is the bespoke shirt, a model of my own creation: inspired by a japanese aesthetic, I aimed to introduce added versatility to a piece which is otherwise static. The unique placket is fastened using silk knots which can be changed according to your mood or to match a particular element of your attire. The extra length allows for interesting layering, while the tunic-like nature is complemented by side pockets and mao collar.
Details: cotton/linen 2 piece suit by Boglioli, bespoke silk knot shirt, suede espadrilles by n.d.c., wayfarers by Ray-Ban, pocket square by Add-On and watch by Daniel Wellington.

There’s no need to go over about how florals have been killing it lately. By now, you’ve all seen hundreds of variations on the theme in every SS12 collection. While I already owned a couple of alternatives, I have a hard time saying no to Our Legacy especially when they deliver a capsule collection with such an outstanding version. The darker shade adds an elegant feel and the pattern is perfect in both color and scale.
