Remembering Anna.

Anna Piaggi has passed away in August of 2012 at the age of 81.
 Last week Milan said its proper Good-by to Anna Piaggi, a  lady whose personal style became a Legend. She was referred to as "an oracular Italian Fashion editor" of Italian Vogue and was known for her unbelievable, eccentric wardrobe which included unique pieces created almost 200 years ago, collection of shoes designed for her by Manolo Blahnik, endless array of fabulous hats designed for Anna by Stephen Jones, rare contemporary pieces. It was impossible not to notice Anna...
 Recently, I caught myself thinking how disappointed I feel every time I look at the photo reports from global Fashion Weeks: there is very little Style itself and too much effort to follow "the latest and the newest". It always seems so forced, so disconnected and disposable to me. There are few precious eclectic faces I look forward to seeing every season and it saddens me to know that Anna is no longer here. In memory of  Anna Piaggi with great appreciation for her vivid sense of style and sense of self, I would like to share with you some of my favorite images of Anna through the years.I hope you will enjoy the selection.:-)
