Are there any style combinations that you object to?

There are no limits in fashion.

Please describe your style in three words.

Dynamic, girly, versatile.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

To be like someone else.

Do you believe in role models?

Of course not. ‘Freetobeyou’ is my motto.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Neoprene, cashmere, PVC.

Which city has the best-dressed women?


Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

I am normal.

What are the rules, if any, in the way you dress?

There are no rules, just be the way that you are and act as you feel. I’m not obsessed with fashion, for me it is feels natural to be myself, and to choose a yellow coat instead of a black one. Energy.

Celebrities and style...

No way!

One garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

Sunglasses and socks.

A woman should always look like...

As she sees herself in the mirror.

Who taught you what you know about style?

It is something that you have inside, nobody can teach you how to do it.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

Based on the weather and my feelings.

What is your biggest regret?

Still living in my city Turin; sometimes I think that I have to move.

We will never see you wearing...

Classic jeans, as they don't fit on me, just the skinny ones with a T-shirt or a pullover.

Which new designers do you follow and why?

Jonathan Saunders. I really love the patterns, the quality, the creativity, and the vintage inspiration of his collections.

The most stylish person you have ever seen...

My grandma.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

How she shakes my hand.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

Everything. I really use everything and I’m not so good at taking care of my items.

The one image that defined your approach to style...

A rainbow.

One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is...

Her socks, hosiery in general.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

You can wear skinny jeans (four years ago)!
