Riccardo & Donatella!!!

My latest lookbook look!

This picture is directly inspired to Givenchy shooting for this winter wich is my favourite collection of the season. 
I decides to match the t-shirt and the hat wich are Givenchy with Versace for H&M becouse Riccardo Tisci for this collection took the inspiration from Versace , the one we all know the historical one. 
I tink that the collection for H&M from our dear Donatella is a big tribute to her genious brother. So I don't think my choice is a wrong one.


Yesterday night shooting: The Virginblak's swan!

I finally bought on e-bay the third look I showed you on the post " help me with my choice".
It really is a catchy outfit, and the first thing I thought when I wore it was a black is funny becouse the brand is called virginblak tha's the reason I called my look virginblack swan.


Hype on Lookbook



These are my las pics dedicated to my Céline Boston bag.
 The religous lay out is a tribute to Riccardo Tisci because in my hand I have a Givenchy shopping bag.

Yestarday photoshooting. The opposite twins.

This was my shooting for my new lookbook outfit.
The colol thing is that I wore the outfit with two different hairstyle and attitude and they look like two different outfits. And I'm also really proud of my DIY shirt!



Yesterday I was looking for some clothes on e-bay and I "bumped" into a really particular brand called Virginblak.
It is a really rock dark and stylish brand that love black and studs.
The quality is really changeable, it depends on the item.
The most amusing things are the accessories above all sunglasses.
I really appreciated the sneakers but the shoes in general aren't that great except the louboutin style shoes.
Prices are Ok for this style of clothes.
This brand is great to complete a total black basic outfit, I don't thing you can mix 2 pieces of that brand togheter it will be too charged in fact the styling of the pictures is all over the place and not really tasteful, but I think that with a little bit of intelligence and sence of style you can look really expensive!!!
Of course I prepared a selction for you of my favourite pieces

Few days ago a accepted an interview from an other blog I think bigger than mine :-)
Here the interview:


What is your name?
Where are you from (country or state)?
 Italy but I live in France.
How old are you?
What is the name of your blog?
 Hotel MariaCarla
How would you describe yourself? 
Peter pan, changeable, nervous and living in my own world
How would you describe your style?
funny but not too much, crazy but not too much , editorial, mixing really expensive with really cheap, a mix of women's and men's clothes without being androgynous, the craziest thing is that I look more androgynous when I wear only men clothes and less when I mix both.
How has your style changed along the years?
I tried all the styles, and I also had periods with no style at all and with no fabulous clothes to wear, when I was working in fashion I was sick of wearing clothes. I understood that I prefer to wear fashion than do it.
Is it hard being a guy who loves fashion? If so, in what ways?
 It is not if you don't care about people judgement. But of course guys have more bad comments than girls 
when they are fashionable, the only way to be fashionable for a guy and not be judged is to follow exactly the trends without pushing them, and that's not creative.
Who are your fashion icons?
 I don't have a particular one, I'm not a good fan he he. It might be even somebody from lookbook and I can stop loving it the week after I get tired really soon of something. I have favorite fashion designers though like riccardo Tisci or Nicolas Ghesquiere or Alber Elbaz.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
I used to prefer multi brand shops but now I do my shopping on the net I thing it takes less time and you can find a lots of precious little brands that you did not know and that you cannot buy in your city or country. I love to have things I don't like to do shopping so I don't miss the all shopping rituals when you go shopping in stores.
What makes you so interested in fashion?
 I think my mother is the cause. She always did her shopping with me and asked me to style her up every morning since I was very young ( like 8 years old) and she used to buy and wear what i choose for her and it was so powerful for a kid to decide things for an adult. I always asked for clothes she never bought me something I did not like.
What are your other interests or hobbies?
My first passion is classical music, I'm a singer. I like to draw i like contemporary art and I have a passion for Japanese culture.
What are your favorite music artists, songs, or genre to listen to?
 Classical music as I said and my favorite classical music is baroque, favorite composers Vivaldi and Haendel.
What does music mean to you?
Everything, is my job and my life and I feel so lucky to have the possibility to do what I like.
Are you a lover of photography?
 I like photos but I'm not an expert. I think that fashion photographs are just selling a product and I don't feel emotions when I look a fashion editorial or a campaign the only thing i look at is how they managed to magnify the clothes in the picture. Art photography is such a different thing , most of the times is not aesthetic but is so beautiful at the same time like Nan Golding's photos, this kind of pictures make me feel something.
What event in your life has had the most impact on you?
A surgery when I was 13. I think my life would be so different without that surgery , is crazy to say this but I like so much my life that I'm almost happy that that happened.
What is your faith?
You mean religion? I'm catholic but I never go to church ( yes sometimes for concerts ) but never for ceremonies. I think I like to believe that there something above mankind but I'm ashamed of it I don't like to admit it. When I'm in a really bad situation and I don't feel strong enough I use to pray to something or somebody I don't know how to call.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
 I don't know I always do what I want and I never ask for advices for important things.
What advice would you give someone? 
I often give fashion advices but it depends of the person I have in front of me. I give singing advices. I give advices how to feel better with yourself but is always painful I don't like it, but I still do.
Who or what is your greatest inspiration? 
My dreams and nightmares.
What are a few of your favorite quotes?
 I real friend is the one who's happy about your success. O. Wilde and " le luxe n'est pas locontraire de la pauvreté , mais celui de la vulgarité "Coco chanel and "Chi fa da se fa per tre" Italian folk's quote
Anything else you want us to know?
 I love macarons cup cakes cheesecakes , foi gras, unagi sushi and pizza. I come from romeo and Juliet' city.I have a cat named Paco. I'm buying my first apartment. I don't like to get old. lol I think that the secret for perfect skin is classic Nivea cream. I don't understand politic. I think fashion is farther and farther from people, in the 80's they was more interested and informed about fashion now some people don't even know Balenciaga or Lanvin. I hope you will understand my English, I'm a really bad writer.
Where else can we find you (via twitter, facebook, lookbook, etc.)?

My favorit fashion capital? London, of course!

Here you are a selection of few brands wich present their collections in London's fashion week.
Even if in Paris the fashion week hasn't started yet ,I loved soo much the british one that I decided to show with this post some of my favorit London brands this year for S/S 2012.
I just descovered some of them.

Not really feminin but so contemporary.

Next summer flower prints will be all over us , so this is a nice and really british interpretation

Some of you will say : " ahhh it's always the same", I agree but is a stupendous "the same".

I'll tell the truth I prefer his resort collection but I still love his almost nif semplicity of lines in  this collection.

Is not the favourit of my selection but I think he deservs to appear in this post

Like acne is not really feminin , but only in the first part of the show. In fact the new thing is that this brand proposed 3 themes that are not mixed together and at the last outfit of each theme there was a mini finali.

I'm not a great fan of this collection but I think women will like it and also people who do not work in fashion could appreciate it.

I just liked 6 outfits ( the ones I show you below) the rest of the collction is kind of dated and not in" the air of time" dans l'air du temps, like we say in french.

I really like the prints in this collection, the only thing I'm scared of is that " will we still love them next summer?"

I've never payed attention to Richard nicoll's fashion shows before , but few months ago I bought a polo Fred Perry by Richard Nicoll that's y I checked it out this year. It's really soft and I think he took inspiration from a cybergclothes store in camden town , may be the same I went to last summer. hihi

To be honest I didn't know this designer, but now I know I love him.

I was a bit disappointed with this collection I always expect something really great from Mary katranzou she invented a new genre of print and I thik that with this collection she shows that she might find something new now, but It still is one of the best shows in London.

Last but not least. I heard about him before but I've never appreciated his work like this time for sure his next fashion shows will be for me a routine rendez-vous.

Now you know what I like for next summer. :-ppp
