53. I spent all day in the office after a long absence away from it I enjoyed the warmth of my staff at seeing me again… their affection… eyes sometimes speak louder than words!
Tough day in the style office… Just Cavalli… men’s collection… just a visual inspection. In the coming days I will have to investigate and check that the Cavalli style is well represented in each item for each line that bears my name!
I try to leave a bit earlier than usual… a first spring sunshine, sweet as the scent of almond blossoms, warms Florence. It accentuates the colors of this city in a way that does not feel real… it looks like a work of an impressionist painter…
I’m driving my little Smart car that spots the same color used for my boat and helicopter – a color that changes according to the reflections of the sun! From fuchsia to turquoise to a dark blue!
I am driving on the Lungarni, the road that runs alongside the Arno River, which flows through Florence. To my left the fascinating historic buildings seem to flow past me, to my right the Piazzale Michelangelo, the most famous observation view point in Florence!
Parking next to my shop… a corner in the middle of Via Tornabuoni… the heart of fashion… the most beautiful boutiques in Florence! Inside my boutique I host a small bar, the Caffé Giacosa, a club with a big name, one associated with the history of Florence from the late nineteenth century.
The famous Negroni cocktail was created at the Caffé Giacosa in the late twenties. The Caffè Giacosa is the best patisserie in town. For several years has been an integral part of my shop and fits my fashion perfectly!
I look at the Palazzo Strozzi that gradually hides in the shadows of the night … Florence, what a special city… I have breathed this art and culture since I was born …
It would take 10,000 articles on the blog to describe Florence… I have tried to convey my love and some small sensations…
I LOVE YOU
