“THE VI­BRANCY OF THE YVES KLEIN BLUE AMONGST ALL THOSE DAP­PER GEN­TLE­MEN AT FLORENCE’S

bian­nual men’s tradeshow Pitti Uomo speaks vol­umes. It takes a bold state­ment to stand out in such a well-dressed group of men. I love how Sarah, who’s known for al­ways wear­ing a be­spoke suit, has found a way to wear her fash­ion week uni­form but in a re­fresh­ing, ef­fort­less way. From her mir­rored avi­a­tors to her sig­na­ture red lip, it’s the per­fect bal­ance be­tween ca­sual and el­e­gant, and mas­cu­line and fem­i­nine. Sum­mer is gen­er­ally a time for dresses, but I feel a suit can be just as fem­i­nine and, in many ways, more em­pow­er­ing. You can eas­ily wear a suit from day to night, ei­ther by keep­ing the same shoes or ac­ces­soriz­ing with eye-catch­ing ex­tras. Sarah has play­fully ac­ces­sorized her look with jew­ellery. The stacked bracelets are very much a ‘Pitti’ style and are rem­i­nis­cent of the menswear pea­cocks who dress up dur­ing fash­ion week. She’s also brought a touch of whimsy by adding pins on her lapels and that lit­tle knot on the striped Bre­ton, which re­veals just the right amount of skin. She’s put her stamp on a clas­sic Floren­tine menswear sta­ple.”
