The collections of Cavalier Bleu are entirely imagined and conceived in Paris. More than a choice, it is a philosophy: the will to perpetuate a know-how and a faultless quality, but also an incomparable genuiness and boldness.
It was in Paris, in 1858, that was held the first catwalk show in the world. A century and a half later, the city has kept alive its attraction and remains the unassailable bastion of fashion. Paris is rooted in a unique heritage with a great taste and an almost obsessive search of elegance. At the same time, there is a constant desire to shake up the borders, not to dwell in the past, but to bring a legacy and be future-oriented. The creation in Paris, is to will to transform the past into an idea of today’s chic, to be part of this era.
This state of mind is obviously due to the Parisien themselves. This is to distinguish themselves, to stand out, that they express an identity through clothing. They shape their daily allure, make sure to be elegant and refined for any occasion. They follow their instinct and dress with sophistication. The garment expresses their feelings and well-being, their audacity, freedom … It is the art of an apparent simplicity, but not a single detail is actually improvised.
Saint Laurent seeks to disrupt accepted sartorial standards, and this slim-fitting blazer comes with peaked leather lapels for a rakish twist. The Parisian label never compromises when it comes to quality and this piece has been tailored in Italy using pure virgin wool to ensure an effortless finish.

As you know, I was invited by LUISAVIAROMA to Florence to attend the eighth edition of the Firenze4Ever event. It was a wonderful experience and the party was a-ma-zing…a club in a theatre, can you imagine? Every person had to create several outfits using pieces of the new collections, with the ‘Ethno-Morphic’ theme. By my side were the photographer Francesco, assistant Daniel and model Riva.
Last weekend, I went shopping, as the sales are on, and you can find some quality things in a better price. I went to my favorite shops downtown but there was hell. Too many people, shopping bags on hands and on top of that you have to pay what you get with your credit card which is in your wallet. That was painful, so I decided to get a card holder to organize everything, even the receipts I got, or my little cheating sheets with what I need to get, in order to make my shopping therapy even more relaxing and refreshing. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to find something classic and stylish while being practical at that time. When I got home at night, I was dead tired and I decided to have a look at online stores for my new necessity. I was searching in a couple of stores when Google gave me a great solution. It was Exentri.
Christmas season is upon us and with that comes lots of events and festivities. We are going to look at outfits perfect for home parties to downtown events. It’s really the time of year when our wardrobes have to work very hard. I’m going to show you some outfit ideas, with a little help from Nordstrom and Façonnable that gonna help you pass this season with ease, as there is a huge collection of wardrobe staples that can be translated in any style with the right styling.
Our first stop is Ambrogio. Ambrogio has to attend a festive dinner party with his family at home this Christmas. He wants to be chic and modern while remaining casual and comfortable, so that he is gonna be able to eat as much as he wants from the Christmas treats, and it’s gonna probably be a lot.
He probably will wear a pair of straight leg jeans so that he is comfortable and be able to eat a lot because it is stretchy. A pair of jeans is also great as it can totally work as a blank canvas. He could pair his jeans with a regular fit sport denim shirt and a red regular fit crewneck sweatshirt. This way he can show his modern approach with a denim on denim look while remaining festive and really casual with the red sweatshirt. He could finish his outfit with a lambskin bomber jacket in black and a pair of black leather Chelsea boots, just to add some “smart” edge.
