Anna Dello Russo: 'You Can Be Naked With a Great Pair of Shoes’

22 February 2012

We've just spied a new video from The brand were lucky enough to visit Italian boutique Dante 5, where the owners (none other than the ultra-fashionista, Anna Dello Russo, and her long-time friend Allesandra Legrottaglie) were hosting a rather unusual event…

The pair have been friends since they were 8 years old and in Anna’s own words, ‘share a passion for fashion.’ Thanks to ADR’s extensive travels around the world for fashion fun, she knows what’s going on 6 months ahead whilst Allesandra is able to be closer to the clients themselves. A match made in heaven then!

So Anna and Allesandra hosted a brilliant shindig to style people in the store – complete with hair, make up and photos - basically just like a photoshoot. Amaze! Anna says the idea started as a joke when they discovered that whenever she was in the boutique, young fash-fans would pop in to meet the lady who once edited Italian Vogue and see her wonderfully wacky wardrobe up-close.

You can actually browse this one-off boutique via – the website that unites independent boutiques around the world with us style lovers. Hoorah!

So what is Anna’s top must have? ‘Shoes', she says. 'I always say invest in the shoes more than the clothes. You can be naked with a great pair of shoes.’ We’ll take your word for it Anna.
