The Four Seasons of Vintage

In Defense of Fantasy, Part II

I bought a vintage floral Rodo bag last Sunday and can’t wait to carry it out for dinner or drinks. As much as I’m hoping to expand my horizons by wearing it with tweed in the cooler months, I’m looking forward right now to pairing it with all black and gray. The nice thing about floral print objects is that even on gloomy days they will remind you of clear skies and warm breezes. And unlike real flowers with their fragile existence, my vintage floral bag, steadfastly alive, will be the repository of countless carefree memories.

Eva Fontanelli

A stylist and fashion editor for Elle Italy, Eva Fontanelli is not afraid of color or print. I love her playful but very grown-up style that incorporates feathers and sequins into daytime wear. Though thoughtful, her look is never studied which makes it all the more charming. Whether wearing neutral tones or vibrant colors, she projects an unselfconscious air that never fails to inspire.
