On the Street…..Piazza Martiri, Napoli


Two shots for her because she had too many great details to hold her to one!  Yes it was a little warm to wear that many layers but she didn’t seem to mind.

    Look at how beautifully straight she stands! And love the scarf. It reminds me of striped ribbon candy.

    This lady definitely knows how to dress, and dress stylishly at that :) I love how everything ties in well with each other, such as the colour of the frames of the glasses nearly matching the shoes, whilst complimenting the coat perfectly <3

    The woman looks incredible for any age. Her confidence is obvious. She is still living life to the fullest, perhaps one her way to meet a beau?

    Not sure about her looks… But I absolutely love this spot in Napoli, one of my favourite places there, with the Vomero.

    Love her cheery spirit and she’s really rocking those layers! Totally understand why you couldn’t just settle for one photo :)

    one of your best captures!
    isn’t she truly captivating?
    Ms Prada should be proud to meet her acquaintance,
    or anyone from the Marni team, the incredible Lucinda
    Chambers in particular!

    She is still looking adorable in this age. Wonderful life. God bless.

    Wowsa. Lovely combinations of colour and texture. That hat seems to be unpopular, but actually works beautifully here.

    By the way, she might not feel too warm with all those layers because many drugs taken by old people for this, that, and the other, thin the blood so they feel colder than younger people. My mother feels every mild breeze as an Arctic blast.

    Great pics, stylish lady. I always remember my own granny saying, already well into her seventies, ‘You might as well be dead as out of fashion.’ It’s a big error to think that our elders don’t care about how they look, in my experience they nearly always do.

    I would love it if the Sartorialist would do a little commentary on the difference between Italians and Americans in their style of dress. Maybe a compare/contrast series of pictures using older posts? Our first reaction is that wow Italians always have it, until the day they die, like this wonderful lady. But is that true? Is there a recognizably American sense of dress flair and propriety? Or are Milan and NYC completely indistinguishable from one another in terms of how people dress (I don’t think so)? Anyway, thank you Sartorialist for another wonderful set of images. I love her.

    Please keep sharing photos of this gen. Even though I’m 40 years out, I’m taking notes for when it’s my turn! Love it.

    When you get old enough, it’s hard to feel warm, so layers in the summer make more sense! Enviable sense of style.

    Beautiful lady. I always feel inspired by people like her.
