Contemporary élan in Italy’s Eternal City
Photography Susan Wright
WHAT SHE’S WEARING: Dress from Poems, an independent boutique on Via del Governo Vecchio; shoes by Nero Giardini; stockings by Intimissimi
ON THE LOCAL LOOK: "The style in Rome is very good. People here like to dress well, whether it be sporty and casual or elegant and fashionable."
WHERE TO SHOP IN ROME: "Go to Via del Governo Vecchio and the streets near Piazza Navona, as well as some of the designer stores in Rione Monti. I like that you can find original things in the tiny little niche shops."
PERSONAL AESTHETIC: "Rome is a very historical city, and I usually dress simply and elegantly, with nostalgic, feminine accessories that remind me of the past."
WON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: "A big silk or cashmere scarf. These have a very antique look, can be worn with anything, and can make a sporty-casual outfit feel very sophisticated."
