FLORENCE BLACK BOOK

Elle (Canada) - - Escape -

Edgardo Oso­rio is the man be­hind Aquaz­zura, the shoe brand beloved by celebs from Ju­lianne Moore to Kendall

Jen­ner. Although it was his métier that brought the Colom­bian-born de­signer here

in 2005, Oso­rio knows his adopted city well. “Florence is a city where you should wake up early, go shop­ping, see all the mu­se­ums and at night have din­ner, get drunk and go home,” he says with a laugh. TAKE A WALK “My favourite thing to do in Florence is just walk around—the en­tire city is kind of a mu­seum. Start at the Ponte Vec­chio and walk up the hill; within 20 min­utes you’re at Pi­az­zale Michelan­gelo, where you have a won­der­ful city view.” EAT WITH MI­UC­CIA “Trat­to­ria Sostanza is a hole in the wall, but it’s a charm­ing lit­tle place. You might sit next to Mi­uc­cia Prada on one side and a Ja­panese

tourist on the other. The but­tered chicken is to die for.”

SHOP FOR LINENS “Loretta Caponi hand­crafts em­broi­dered linens, baby clothes and the most beau­ti­ful

py­ja­mas. It’s a won­der­ful sou­venir to take home—they’re su­per-el­e­gant and some­thing you wouldn’t nor­mally buy

for your­self.”
