Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

Palazzo Dama

03 . 14 . 16

I just got back from Paris last night. I have jet lag and my bags are still not unpacked so of course I’m already thinking about where I want to go next. I saw photos of the new Palazzo Dama hotel in Rome on Instagram and in the new Elle Decoration France while I was […]

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 […]

Palazzo Fendi

01 . 17 . 16

Perhaps I would have enjoyed Rome more last autumn if I had been able to stay at the ridiculously chic Fendi Private Suites Hotel featured in the new WSJ magazine out next weekend. The luxury fashion house moved its corporate headquarters and reconfigured the 17th-century Palazzo Fendi with three separate architecture firms to create the boutique hotel, their largest store, an […]

One of the most beautiful Instagram accounts I’ve come across recently is that of Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci, @lallo25. None of his photos are captioned but as we know, a picture is worth a thousand words. Many images are of his homes as well as his extensive collection of antiques and vintage […]

Unplugged in Rome

10 . 01 . 15

I arrived in Rome this afternoon but wish I had gone straight to Florence. The Hotel Locarno has turned out to be a huge disappointment. I will never stay here again. There is barely any wifi and I can’t get any work accomplished and no one really seems cares. This will teach me never to go […]

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 […]

Roman Holiday

09 . 10 . 15

The fall 2015 Madewell catalog was photographed in Rome and it’s getting me very excited for my upcoming trip in two weeks. It’s also making me wonder what time they had to get up in order to shoot these tourist free images.

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

Roman Holiday

06 . 25 . 14

I’m currently trying to decide if I should go to Italy in July or wait until I return to Europe in October.  These photos that Peter Lindbergh took of Caroline Trentini and actor Louis Garrel in Rome for Vogue have me contemplating hoping on a plane as soon as possible.  But I’m still not sure. […]

Audrey in Rome

04 . 03 . 13

The May 2013 issue of Vanity Fair has a wonderful feature on the new book Audrey in Rome and I highly recommend picking it up. I knew Audrey Hepburn made Roman Holiday but didn’t realize that she lived in the Eternal city for more than 20 years.  Her son Luca Dotti culled the Reporters Association […]

Gorgeous Gucci

02 . 28 . 11

In 2009, Gucci moved their headquartes from Florence to Rome.  The offices are located in a historic building on Via del Banco di Santo Spirito.  The nine story palazzo was commissioned by Giulio Alberini, a wealthy merchant, and erected in 1515 and was designed by Raphael and his student Giulio Romano.  Gucci head designer Frida Gianinni […]
