    I think the nutty Isabella Blow sextagenarian rocking the peep-toes with athletic pants should be the real star of this shot.

    maybe someone has said this, but that is anna piaggi. no?

    that man looks divinely snappy.

    the “nutty” woman is Anna Piaggi, fashion writer/icon and a complete genius, no?

    That’s Anna Piaggi. Don’t be disrespectful.

    Can´t understand the need to use sunglasses inside.Either you just have come from some sort of eye operation or maybe you want to hide your identity.

    They are really like an elder devil and an angel (in the body of Anna Piaggi).
    I love his socks and her “jogging pants”. They are a class of their own.

    you always have to credit someone who is making a fashion choice that is deliberate. kudos to Beppe. but are the red socks really attractive? flattering? an improvement to the suit? when i see this i usually think the person’s goals are not to look their best, but something other. attention? not that that is a less valid goal.

    Beppe rocks! Very classic and understated, yet he is distinguished in his simplicity and good taste. Very Italian. Here’s an interesting article about him and his outlook on style…

    It’s not Isabella, she passed away ….what was it, May 7th?? That is Anna Piaggi.

    And Isabella was not nutty, she was beautiful.

    Anna Piaggi does kind of steal the show here, with the high heeled peep-toes and aqua satin track pants!

    who doesn’t love a man with red socks? fabulous, as is Anna, Italian Vogue editor with a collection of the most stunning vintage fashion you would kill for.

    So, Sart, do you have any shots of Anna Piaggi? Beppe is great as usual, but what about her?

    This is a tiny bit off-topic, but I’m really enjoying checking out the blogs and websites of people leaving comments. And, it’s also much fun when commenters identify the people in the photo!

    I’m now gonna google Anna Piaggi.

    Sart, it’s a brilliant idea not to identify everyone in the photos you post. Sort of a treasure hunt!

    Those red socks are the only thing saving him from that explosion lurking on his left.

    Fashion icons, too, must have lapses in judgement it seems.

    he looks really good. the woman next to him is begging for attention…
    not sure if i think that’s a good or bad thing.

    This gentleman looks wonderful in his red socks. Once again, it is the one unexpected touch that makes the whole look interesting and cool. And his fascinating companion elevates his cool factor big time.

    Yes, but Sart knows where to direct his camera, and I think it was very sly to focus on the gent and not on Anna Piaggi. After all, she gets all the attention she is due from the likes of Lagerfeld, who sketches her, and Manolo, who designs her shoes, and Stephen Jones who designs her hats, and fans of her work at Italian Vogue, and those who enjoy any appearance she makes in public because she never wears the same outfit twice, and the Victoria & Albert in London, which had an exhibit dedicated to her style and career in 2006.

    I always wonder if those sorts of details (red socks) are intentional, or they just happened to be the only pair of socks that were clean/were randomly thrown on.

    I agree with Thea about the Isabella Blow-esque woman on the right!

    When I look at her, I feel the blue levity of a stray butterfly during peak migration.

    The red socks on the gentleman is nice.

    But is the lady next to him wearing a Nike track pants/warmers and fingerless gloves??? They look like something from the 1980s.

    The woman on the right side with peep-toe shoes, blue green (sweat?)pants and hair accessory outdid Mr. Beppe..

    Red socks are offered as an achievement sitting next to Anna Piaggi? Unfortunately, the lovely man suffers by comparison, and right now, and anytime Anna storms the gates, the rest of the world is exposed as either unimaginative, fearful, constricting, codependent bunch, sometimes all. Viva Anna, Viva viva viva!

    I love that he is wearing red socks! It’s an injection of cool into a classic suiting. I wonder what underwear he’s wearing. Red to match his socks??

    the Lady IS the fab Anna Piaggi. If you google her nam, hit images, you’ll see more of her outrageous outfits.

    Colored socks look sexy on a man. it shows some form of attention given to the greatest of details, which is so uncommon these days with men. Wonder what brand he’s wearing. I bought some green ones from vk nagrani, and no one got it at first. now, i’m addicted to anything but black!

    Both Isabella AND Anna are style icons. One does not trump the other.

    May Isabella rest in peace.

    She will be missed.

    Of course Sart will have a pic of Anna by herself, but he’s saving it for a separate post, right Sart?

    I also like reading the comments as much as the posts AND I think one of my first ever comments came from someone who saw my comment on here and came to my blog (that’s enough about me, let’s talk about me)…

    I love the shoes Anna Piaggi is wearing… the hat/coronal-thingy too.
    They both look wonderful.

    During a museum tour the guide explains, “Here you can see the statue of Minerva…”.
    “Excuse me, madam,” a visitor interjects. “Who is that man behind her? Is he her husband?”
    “No, Minerva wasn’t married: She was the goddess of wisdom.”

    Off-colored (in regards to the outfit) socks are a detail I love. It brings focus to something that seems so ordinary.
