I had a great day in Florence today. The sun was out, it wasn’t too cold and there are almost no tourists about, so I was free to wander the city without crowds.
The shop windows are full of brand new spring fashions. It is going to be a colourful season.
After my ritual coffee at Giacosa, I went next door to Roberto Cavalli.
I was most impressed with the cuff.
If you don’t like pink, there is the blue collection.
His menswear is excellent as well.
Max Mara are showing checks.
With shoes to match.
Ermano Scervino has beautiful lace.
Men are not forgotten here either.
Dolce and Gabbana have gone Sicilian.
Valentino is always exquisite.
I liked the next shop for the birds on the walls and the decoration inside.
Miu Miu is a bit Oriental, sorry about the reflection.
Gelati colours are popular this season.
Louisa in Via Roma has models with long skinny legs.
Men’s jackets are tight with an interesting tie treatment.
Is that Arnie in the photo?
Twin Set has a great shop in Florence.
This dress and hat appealed to me.
The Chanel windows are beautiful.
Time for a break and a walk across the Ponte Vecchio. The Arno looked like a water colour painting today.
Accessories are colourful, or interesting.
Philosophy and Alberta Ferretti always impress.
Cacharel in black and white.
Spring is beautiful at Pucci.
White at Burberry.
Colour at Celine.
More colour at Zadig and Voltaire.
Etro is always a favourite.
Children are not forgotten.
Shoes come in all colours, shapes and sizes.
I spotted some Florentine fashionistas on a mission. I hope they found what they were looking for.
It looks like a season with something for everyone. I love all the colour and floral prints.
I am hoping to see and end to…
Leggings worn as pants…horrible!
Cropped pants of all kinds…they make everyone look shorter and fatter than they are.
Dropped crotch pants…they are just plain stupid.
