The thing that jumps out at me is that there are some things that only money can buy. The quality of the material and the elegant cut of these clothes, for example. Two ladies who lunch, upper class style.
I’ve been reading your blog for many months. I have to confess… most of the time I don’t get it. If you passed me on the street, it would be very obvious how much I don’t get it lol. But I keep coming here… and with some posts like this, I can say:
Nice to see some mature ladies for a change.So typical Italian with all that black as basics.They have really dressed up for an afternoon in town.Everything is so thought through.Their bags look very much alike.A clever idea to take a large bag along shopping.You can put the smaller purchases in it.
Perfect. The clothes, the bags, the shoes, the attitudes :-). Just a tiny bit of fantasy to keep it interesting, but still disciplined. Really great looking ladies, but one needs a lot of money – in addition to lots of style – to pull it off.
Wow, though apparently not Italian, these women have what one considers to be quintessential Italian style, absolutely timeless, c;assical. I fell in-love with an Italian woman who sat next to me on a plane once, she had me on the first ‘scuzi’.
Costanza Pascolato is well known by Brazilian fashionists. Her words of approval are sort of essential, but that does not mean she’s like Anna Wintour, because she’s not at all. Ah, and that’s her daughter…What’s her name? It’s in the tip of my tongue…Allegra? Not sure
Costanza Pascolato!!!!!! Yes, she is brazilian, and she owns a “textile factory” called Santaconstancia. She is also a fashion consultant, very respected here in Brazil. If she is a goddess, she is THE goddess of elegance – in that meaning that the Royal Academy used to grade the projects: elegance is truth, concise, simple, and holds it all apparently with no effort at all. It’s actually great to see her here!
It is interesting that some of the readers comment on these elegant ladies being dressed up. In reality they are very simply, and basically dressed but the styles are really quite timeless, and the materials and purses lovely. While I am all for individuality and quirkiness on some levels and for some ages, this is really something to “pull off” well.
oooh sooo classy !! i want to be that when im thier age! they remind me once of a woman in via spiga .. same place . ..wearing a very classy coat .. a pouflike garment so beautiful i stopped in my tracks and couldnt help gape at the folds and structure !
Absolutely agree with you lala, if I grow up to be like them I’m happy.. Very classy ladies.. Of course the Prada jacket is amazing, and looks even more amazing when worn.. I love the movement in lady to the left’s jacket, and her necklace is lovely! They look cute together with their short pants.
Hey, dears, she’s not Constanza, she’s COSTANZA (no extras “n” for her)Pascolato and her daughter, Consuelo. Let me tell you here that this minor error with her name is quite common and it also “gave birth” to a fashionists gay slang in here originated at sĂŁo paulo fashion week at the 2007 spring/summer season, that is “non-coNstanza”, now with this nosy “n”. A “non-constanza” person is someone, like the mispronounced name, an error his or herself, finelly used to most of those second hand celebrities in frontlines of the fashion shows who are only there to be seen and photographed to next week gossips magazines. Now, you chics, don’t be a non-constanza yourselves!
OMG, I know them. they stop by at my stand everytime they are in Milan for fashion week and they are just lovely,always.they gave me tips for my thesis… does anyone know how I can contact them?Im not sure im going to work at the next Fashion week and didnt get the chance to say bye! I think they are the perfect combination of chic and kind,different from most of the rest of the ppl of the fashion world!
