This week has just begun and there’s already so much in the works. Fashion Week is on top of the list and is by far the most looked-after event of February, and goes further into the beginning of March when it’s all over (for a while). The shows began in New York, which is the place to be this week, literally, with both Men and Women following one after another. Fall/Winter 2019 is the phrase to talk about, and it will be for a while.
Yesterday’s Shows: Todd Snyder, Joseph Abboud, and Palomo Spain, the latter being the epitome of colorfulness and vibrancy in Men’s fashion, so far.

Front Row faces: Zachary Quinto, Johannes Huebl, Drake Bell, Cody Simpson, Neil Patrick Harris and more.

Next on our list is 69th edition of Sanremo Music Festival, officially starting today and ending on the 9th of February. Yesterday the Festival had a celebrity-infused red carpet event, with artists such as singer Arisa, Paola Turci, Enrico Nigiotti, rapper Ghemon, Einar and so many more. The contest is taking place at Teatro Ariston of Sanremo and is being broadcast by RAI.

Last, Deutsche drama ‘Club Der Roten Baender – Wie Alles Begann’ had its premiere in Cologne at the beginning of this week. The movie is set for its official release on Valentine’s day, definitely not in tune with hearts with chocolate, but the cast is young and talented and besides, who’s not into German dramas! As a plot, ‘The club of red ribbons – How it all began’ (translated) tells the story of six youngsters, each living their own story, till events bring everyone under the same roof of Albertus Hospital. Expect a lot of current societal issues such as family drama, body-image issues and so on. The end promises to be a good one.

Cast: Tim Oliver Schultz, Damian Hardung, Luise Befort, Timur Bartels, Ivo Kortlang, Nick Julius Schuck.

From Milan Fashion Week Mens Fall/Winter

Fendi made fashion while waiting for the luggage at the airport, Dolce and Gabanna closed the show with an awesome performance by none other than singer Maluma and Armani was all about luxury and taste. Read on to find more about Milan Fashion Week Mens Fall/Winter 2019.

Giorgio Armani showcased one of the best collections from Milan Fashion Week Mens, along with Emporio Armani. The first collection is the heaven of sweaters, luxurious fabrics, and jackets. Colors are deep blue, purple, indigo, and grey with unexpected touches of emerald and ruby. Large pants with tight ankles are often seen in this collection. As for Emporio, there’s a switch to a more dapper look, with embroidered velvety jackets and fur details. Pants tend to keep the look from Giorgio Armani collection, but there’s more variety in shapes and length. Like always, timeless fashion.

UNIFORMS OF MASCULINITY, Neil Barrett’s Fall/Winter Mens collection is another successful show from Milan Fashion Week. Tasteful looks, with wearable pieces, very comfy looking but modern with a hint of elegance walked the runway, giving vibes of inspiration for next season’s street style.

Snow made an excellent canvas for Ermenegildo Zegna’s Mens wearable Fall/Winter 2019 collection on the first day of Milan Fashion Week Mens. Pieces are just right, modern, fresh looking even, varying from elegant, business to street style to young and cool. Colorwise, there’s plenty of variety of pleasant shades, representative of winter and autumn.

Prada had a surprisingly simplistic collection, with worker type of clothes that even had the name tags. Pre Fall 2018 and Fall/Winter 18-19 were both mashed into one show, but this does not interfere with the result. Shorts are often seen in men’s looks, matched with stiff shirts and bucket hats. Prints are colorful, full at the edge of shorts, coats, and shirts, slowly disappearing as we go up. Black is dominating.

Julianne Moore Conducts an Impeccable Set of Fashion Appearances At Venice Film Festival

I once watched a show where somebody said about Julienne Moore that she’s getting better and better with time, fashion wise, just like a good wine. I took that as a motivation, but I wasn’t really into Julianne Moore’s history. Now I know that she’s 56 and looking great. On top of that, she’s slaying in the fashion style department. Every single time.
Recently she’s been in Venice for Venice Film Festival, together with George Clooney and Matt Damon, for their movie Sububircon. Here the actress had several appearances, and I have to say I’ve been impressed by every each one of her looks. It is almost impossible to pick one favorite, but if I would have to do it, her flowy red gown with pink seemed to work best in favor to her red hair, rosy cheeks and red lips. A second almost impossible to pick favorite would be her t-shirt embroidered dress she was wearing for the Sububircon photocall. And last but not least, I loved her fringy dress that had a sort of apron. An absolutely stunning piece of clothing.

Amal Clooney’s lilac dress talked about romance, excellent craftsmanship, and high class. On top of that, the color and silhouette help to soften up some of the harshness dark hair usually has.

Avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson was amongst the many who showed up on the red carpet ahead of “Suburbicon” screening. Her positive attitude, together with her creative sense of dressing up went very well hand in hand. And literally, the highlight of her look is every single piece that she is wearing.

There’s somebody I do not know, who showed up wearing a fancy robe on top of his suit. The bow tie is a perfect touch to the whole affair.

One of my favorite actresses, Barbora Bobulova, was in high heels and lila dress for the photocall of ‘Diva!’, and I can’t take my eyes off of her adorable look. The bangs add more of the girly vibe.

Actress Isabella Ferrari joined Bobulova in the pursuit of looking gentle and feminine, choosing a just as much loved color, which is a lovely pink of a long dress with shirt collar.

Jane Fonda looked sublime on the red carpet in her embroidered gown, for the screening of her latest movie ‘Our Souls at Night’.

Milena Mancini’s super relaxed but fashionable look that she wore for the ‘Il Contagio’ photocall has given me some inspiration for my own looks. Love her hair, the posture and all that she’s wearing.

First Glimpse of Best Fashion From Venice Film Festival

Spanish actress Lola Duenas was all a smile before the screening of her latest movie Zama, and I’m looking at her dress thinking to myself that I might’ve found the reason for her cheerfulness. Not that the actress shouldn’t be in high spirits, but the dress just might have gone through a trick. True or not, I am inclined to be in favor of her look. Next time, just rock it with more confidence, Lola Duenas!

Jury member Mark Cousins adapted the Scottish kilt to a handsome red carpet appearance, honoring its roots and looking mighty stylish while doing it.

Kristen Wiig looked stunning in her plunging neckline Zuhair Murad dress and perfect sleek hair while posing on the red carpet before the screening of ‘Downsizing’. Go girl!

3 Best Tracks Played at Kappa Futur Festival 2017

So it’s been a while since 8-9 July when Kappa Futur Festival 2017 happened in Turin. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy procrastinating so here are my top three tracks from the festival, delivered to you better later than never.

Seth Troxler’s b2b set with The Martinez Brothers gave me a tune to love and attach in the depth of my soul. Released by artist Kid Enigma under label Plant 74 on 11 December 2014, Dangerous is an awesome piece with smooth rhythms and lyrics to remember.

The first track from Nina Kraviz’s set is her 2014 release, IMPRV. Simply as that. Or not. Listening to it I got a slightly surreal feeling, a result of Kraviz’s seductive voice played on top of a mysterious sound resembling, in my opinion, an 80’s nostalgy. Then, in the middle of the track, there’s a change of pulse and suddenly everything becomes more awake and alert. Maybe we were in fact dreaming. Then we woke up.

And finally, there’s Joseph Capriati’s ‘one of a kind’ techno track Solar System, released back in 2012, under Drumcode label. The Italian Dj gifted the audience with this powerful tune, slightly mixing the track for the live version.
