    This is the Italian journalist from before, right?
    She always looks amazingly individual!

    Beautiful skirt!

    I love skirts that have an ethnic(sp) look with a plain white or black tee. This is such a fresh and dressed up but dreassed down look.

    That is so awesome. It’s cute without being flashy, and just so right.

  12. Yes, the journalist!

    Rock on! Love the patterning. Ethnic chic. Love the stack of pink bracelets. Quite unexpected.

    Sarto, would you consider interviewing her about her style? I would love to read about her style influences!

    I have a huge respect for your eye for fashion and details but this isn’t one of them. She looks like a bohemian hippie who still lives in Village.

    This is such an individualistic look. It’s a very personal style and she carries it off very well. Plus it’s quite age appropriate, which I truly love and adore.

    I’m stunned by her ability to work the backpack: it’s fully integrated into the look. Accolades to you both.


    June 26, 2007 at 12:28 am

    The woman with the great bag! She was my introduction to your blog and it almost feels like seeing an old friend…how do these same people keep appearing in your photos from foreign countries? You’re almost like a television show and these are the cameo appearances of the guest actors.

    I just like not that she dresses that great!!, she seeem careless obout what anybody could say, i thing thats the seacret to develope de way of manifastating how you are,and there is a time when being bold and careless make and statement,and as i can see from all the notes here, finally is making her recognizable, cingular…

    Thank you for photographing her! I love your photos of her the most because she seems so genuine. I agree with the person who said that you should interview her about her style. She is like the Italian version of my grandmother. I hope you keep running into her whenever you are in Italy!

    I love this picture!The skirt is fantastic – looks like something Antonio Marras would design. I love print and color combinations. And, of course, beautiful lady.

    Renata’s look has started looking a bit outdated….I know she΄s a mighty individual but in Greece this look has the “communist youth” stamp all over it.

    she is not on the street, so I am speculating that maybe you and Renata will work together in the future? It would be really really interesting.

    Fabulous! Love how the skirt is slightly billowing as well – beautiful detail and timing on the photographer’s part!

    In a place where fashion is perhaps dictated by trends and name recognition, it is refreshing to see someone wear clothing that does not, at first glance, appear as “in”; however, that is one of the great ironies of fashion, that whatever is awkward or out is somehow very fashion forward, an ideal which your blog displays daily. I think her style is Miuccia Prada mixed with a sort of Andean sensibility – from the sandal to the plays on proportion, she seems to remain comfortable yet partake in the Italian fashion scene at the same time. Bravo for her maverick spirit.

    Total gipsy in style; otherwise classical and somewhat bcbg! Good, Renata!

    Renata! I loved her from the first time I saw her looking so strong smart & lovely on your blog. If I have a daughter one day, I may name her Renata.

    What a joy. I’d give anything to take a look through her closet for inspiration. I’d also like to know what pack she is wearing. Maybe Mandarina Duck?

    She looks terrific and with such an individual style. Just love it.

    Never heard of her but it appears from all that I’ve read that she’s someone to watch…

    I wish I could agree with the accolades heaped on this woman’s outfit, but it seems so very ordinary to me. Far from being individual, I’d say it’s quite commonplace and boring. And, it doesn’t do anything for her, except make her look a bit short and out-of-date. This one screams 1970s hippie. Been there, done that, got over it. Sorry if this seems harsh, but I can’t see anything fab about this scrungy look.
