Vogue Talents Cocktail Party 2012

On the 20th of February, The Core went to the Vogue Talents Cocktail Party,created by Vogue Italia and held at the Italian Cultural Institute in London. It was the perfect opportunity to meet the designers that have the occasion to introduce themselves to british public, talk about their brands and perspectives with a drink in a  relaxed  atmosphere.

My ''Crush''

I actually like this brand,beside the fact that Tomaso and Francesco are two lovely people, I found it very easy to wear.

Antonio Romano and Francesco Alagna
Created in 2009 by Antonio Romano and Francesco Alagna, Comeforbreakfast's new FW 12/13 collection has an unisex concept. It deals with volumes and lenghts, using mostly neutral colors such as grey, white . Some of their pieces are in strong opposition with the general concept, using yellow and orange with very light fabrics that reveal the real shapes of the body. 

With a theme based on an urban trip, you may wear it all day long while going from streets to streets.

Alessandro Biasi and Simona Costa


Launched in Spring/Summer 2011, Salar is a luxury Made In Italy brand.

When some women may be crazy about shoes or underwears, bags are my little thing and Salar is stirring my ''bags-hunger''.

Born in Rome and graduated in Costume and Fashion Science at Sapienza Universty, Caterina Gatta's collection is fresh,young and colorful.
