Here are Valentina Di Pinto‘s essentials who is a Fashion Editor for Glamour Italy and whose style I just love, and whose humor (yes, it’s my favorite personality trait a person can have) and haircut I secretly dream of stealing.
My Top: my essential is a leather t-shirt from COS. When it’s really cold it is better to wear something under or over it and if it’s hot …it’s better to stay in the shade!
My Bottom: Very, very thin leather pants from H&M, a leather ’50’s skirt by Salvatore Ferragamo and oversized leather pants by Au Jour Le Jour. I’m not kidding– I’m in a leather mood!
My Jeans: Black or grey are the essentials! I usually don’t spend too much money on them because I love to change it up a lot, so jeans from H&M.
My Intimates: In contrast with the clothes: really colorful with dark clothes and skin tones with prints from American Apparel.
My Coat: My last buys are both bicolor: black and beige. One really grungy style from Hache and one vintage from Kamanta, in double face materials. Really aristocratic.
My Bag: Like almost every season….. a new clutch bag from Marni! But a clutch is usually not enough for everyday life, so a really cool bucket bag is the right answer. From Marni too.
My Accessories: I’m becoming addict for necklaces; I’ve never worn them before! Lizzie Fortunato and Leda Otto are essentials for me.
My Watch: It’s one of my favorite pieces, always. My essential is a vintage one from Vacheron Constantin that my grandfather gave to my father and my father gave to me.
My Scent: Like a lot of things in my style: sunglasses, jacket, and watch; my perfume also comes from a male world. For ten years, Intense by Costume National is my second skin.
My Brunette: My hair chooses for me. They have a different life, really far away from me. They wake up when they want and they don’t care about what I like.
My Lip: Coral color it’s my must, especially one from YSL.
My Skin: Good cream, like Kiehl’s oil-free lotion, and not too much make up. Sometimes it’s not enough, but a nice smile balances everything.
My Inspiration: Any woman with a story can be an inspiration. Peggy Moffitt, Monica Vitti, Lauren Bacall, Mia Farrow, Julianne Moore and more.
