Gucci Garden

01 . 11 . 18

I’m sure no one needs another excuse to visit Florence but the new Gucci Garden that just opened is a very compelling reason. The Gucci Garden is located inside the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia, which housed the Gucci Museo. Conceived by creative director Alessandro Michele, the newly designed space features a store with one-of-a-kind items, the […]

Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual menswear trade show, just finished in Florence which means lots of street style photos have hit the internet. In honor of Father’s Day, here are some of my favorites from GQ photographed by Dan Roberts.

Before I head off on my next trip, I thought it might be a good idea to finally recap my two week trip to Italy last autumn which includes some of the things I wore along the way. I started  off in Milan for fashion week and then traveled on to Venice, Rome, and Florence before […]

Fabulous Florence

10 . 04 . 15

After being unplugged for a few days, I’m back in business in Florence. Before I highlight a few of the things I’ve done so far, I do want to address my last post. I think there comes a time on every traveler’s journey where they lose their “stuff” so to speak.  My time came in Rome. […]

Arrivederci!

09 . 23 . 15

I’m off to the airport to catch my Alitalia flight to Italy tonight, the same airline that Pope Francis arrived in yesterday.  I was a little sad to be missing the Pope’s visit to New York until I found out he’s staying on East 72nd Street. Between his visit, the UN General Assembly, and the President […]

J.K. Place Firenze

08 . 20 . 15

One place I am very excited to visit, if not stay at, is the J.K. Place Hotel in Florence. The interior design of the five-star townhouse hotel by Michele Bonan has inspired many and been featured many places including Lonny where these photos originated. I look forward to seeing all the details in person and perhaps also […]

Italy Advice Needed

08 . 19 . 15

As I mentioned previously, I’m planning a trip to Italy this September/October that will include Milan, Venice, Rome, and Florence. Obviously, I know all the major sights but if you have any recommendations for places off the beaten path, charming cafes or new stores, please let me know. Grazie mille, HC

While I’m in the Hamptons, it feels like everyone else I follow on Instagram is in Italy right now. Some are on holiday but most are in Florence for Pitti Uomo, the most important menswear tradeshow on the calendar each year. It’s a chance for the men to have their day in the sun and strut […]

Double Take

01 . 25 . 15

  Men’s fashion week has been taking place the last few weeks in Europe.  The Fashion Director of Esquire magazine, Nick Sullivan, has been making the rounds and also posting some fun “double take” photos on Instagram. Not sure if they are taken at the time or combined in PhotoShop but the photos combine an […]

I have travel on the brain this week. I think it’s because I wish I was going somewhere exotic for Labor Day weekend instead of Pennsylvania, which is where I am actually going. I was also originally going to tell you about another hotel in Florence but it’s small and actually very reasonably priced and […]
