Vodka Martini. Shaken, not stirred.

Vodka Martini. Shaken, not stirred.

Yes, I wore the Suit among the suits. Getting in a tuxedo is like wearing a leather jacket, maybe a little aged, it changes you. Inside and outside it changes you, for those few hours, in which inevitably you turn yourself into a Bond guy, your thoughts, personality and ways of doing things change. Like when you listen to the music, for those brief moments you are kidnapped by a mysterious force which distorts perspective and renew feelings. This fabulous iconic garment is a D&G one with a precious midnight blue velvet. The finishing touches are up to the brand and trust me, you can easily find the difference. From the quality of the fabric to the seams. I hope you like the video we built, on the other hand for a suit like this a worthy presentation was needed. ;) I thank Nedo Baglioni PH for the creation of this video and as always Alex Apparent PH for the wonderful photos and for the work he daily perform at my side. I was lacking a Walther PPK gun!. Damn it!. Thank you,
JN.

Ebbene si, ho indossato il Vestito fra i vestiti. Entrare in uno smoking è come indossare un giubbotto di pelle, magari un po’ invecchiato, ti cambia. Dentro e fuori ti cambia, per quelle poche ore, in cui inevitabilmente ti senti un po’ Bond, il tuo pensiero, la personalità ed i modi di fare mutano. Come quando ascolti la musica, per quei brevi Continue reading

The Prince of Florence

The Prince of Florence


Salve a tutti!.
Questi bellissimi scatti sono opera di un talentuoso fotografo con il quale ho lavorato e che voglio ringraziare personalmente, Joahn Anastasiadis.
Sotto le vesti di un viaggiatore errante, “Il Principe di Firenze”, inizia così la campagna pubblicitaria per il famoso negozio  fiorentino. (www.principedifirenze.com)
A parte la scelta quasi obbligata del voluminosissimo pantalone bianco, ho composto personalmente questi due outfit. Il primo, elegante, da un sapore nobile ed oggetto di una trasposizione storico culturale dei primi del 900, richiama alla mente l’ostentata opulenza descritta nei romanzi di quell’epoca. Il ritorno al volume, e lo dico con amarezza, è una concreta realtà. Basti pensare che è stato uno degli elementi chiave dell’ultimo PittiUomo per l’inverno 2015. Nel secondo invece, ritratto di un’altra epoca, si intravede nel viaggiatore la frenesia di una personalità inquieta ed in continua ricerca di un’amore mancante. Disperato e completo a metà il viaggiatore incarna l’essenza di ciò che tutti noi siamo. Dei morbosi cercatori di felicità.

Hello everyone!.
These beautiful shots are the work of a talented photographer with whom I worked and who I want to thank personally, Johan Anastasiadis .
Under the guise of a wandering traveler, “The Prince of Florence”, begins the ad campaign for the famous Florentine shop. ( www.principedifirenze.com ) Continue reading

Having down to a fine art

Having down to a fine art

I never would have thought of being able to combine a backpack with a smart wear this well! That’s good considering I hadn’t focus on it that much. Let’s just say this, as in this case, we often take advantage of the pure and primitive experimentation to get results, even satisfactory sometimes. In fact, fashion as well as taking advantage of the correlation between the objective realities that surround us; also, applying totally practical and unweighted resources can usually be one of the best creative methods.
I hope you enjoy it.
Have a great week.

Non avrei mai creduto di poter abbinare così bene uno zaino ad un abbigliamento elegante come questo!. In effetti non sono nemmeno scervellato più tanto questa volta. Continue reading

I GOT MY EYES ON YOU

I GOT MY EYES ON YOU


We gone crazy.
It happened, after long and endless rainy afternoons I decided to sit down to get two or three shots “passport-style”!. (The ones with closed eyes were clearly pulverized.)
So that’s it, this is how we killed the bad time we had this week (very few hours) and after all, I could even say the result is acceptable.
Which is why we will use this method again, perhaps to show off an outfit or a video.
Bye bye.
JN

C’è preso’l matto.
È successo, dopo lunghi ed interminabili pomeriggi di pioggia ho deciso di mettermi a sedere a fare due o tre scatti stile “fototessera”!. ( quelle con gli occhi chiusi sono state chiaramente polverizzate. ) Continue reading

Ok, here is a very smart outfit which wants to be shown elegant and intelligent at the same time. Practical.
To enhance the comfort of this apparently “uncomfortable” outfit, (because very elegant) and so made ​​up of elements that force and limit the movements, all you need is give freedom to your feet. Believe me, it’s the reason why I opted for the derby model shoe made by Timberland which are extremely comfortable and at the same time with a clean profile and not overly elegant as free of details. If you feel comfortable in a pair of shoes, you can even tolerate being strangled by a Windsor knot.
In fact every time you wear a tie you immediately become a man, people inevitably place you in a professional class pool, or much more, you are exposed to a storm of assumptions and conjectures on what might be your personality. So it is always quite difficult to unfamiliarize a tie you wear, to remove or to don’t care of concepts such as those which mentioned just now. So, in the end, all we could say about this rigorous outfit is that this is definitely a structured one, though it is very dynamic as well.
Ideal for a phlegmatic Sunday full of spare time.
( Almost forgot, do you like our little mare? :D )
Have a nice day people .
JN

Che ve ne pare?. Outfit davvero smart. Ovvero, elegante ed intelligente. Pratico
Per esaltare il comfort di un outfit apparentemente “scomodo” perché molto elegante, quindi costituito da elementi che costringono e limitano i movimenti, basta dare Continue reading

Pitti Uomo 85 – Part 2

Pitti Uomo 85 – Part 2

Well, according to the statements by Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine, Pitti was definitely a success . One of the most successful Pitti with inflows by foreigners and compatriots as well like never before!. A riot of inputs, a total of 30,000 visitors eager to arrive at Pitti for January 7 with the turkey and gammon still in their stomach! . Well, but the truth is an other, the hotels, lodgings and shopping centers were all complaining. He adds, “we have to emphasize the presence of foreign buyers” of course .. Without them we wouldn’t go anywhere. If we were to rely on our incredible ability to export and of exaltation of the product we would literally screwed. Just think on the fact that the exhibitors are already paying good money (thousands Euros) to expose their products into a few square meters areas and don’t even have a parking spot in the outpost of the “Fortezza da Basso” ( which is one the medieval strongholds in Florence ) included in the price. Well, of course, there are “efficient” shuttle services from the most comfortable parking area in Novoli located just on the other side of Florence anyway… .  -.-
Hence, let’s talk about a rising new brand.
MUNN is the brand that I absolutely loved the most. A Korean derivation who wants to break stereotypes by giving new life to items already familiar and consolidated .
New details and research for the model using new materials to brake up the familiar story of the classical language . A real “restyle act” that has not been seen for some time.
The tailor made ​​in Tuscany by ANDREA NERI , SARTORIA PARTENOPEA , DUCHAMP London , HUGOPRATT for CORTOMALTESE , the British of CESARE PACIOTTI and so Doucal’s, L’s Shoes, PirelliPzero and CAMPANILE were some of the 20/30 noteworthy brands of the total 823.
To follow, here are the other visual proposals and my day2 outfit.

Bene, secondo le dichiarazioni di Raffaello Napoleone, A.D di Pitti Immagine, questo Pitti è stato un successo. Uno dei Pitti meglio riusciti con affluenze mai viste prima da parte di stranieri e compatrioti!. Un tripudio di ingressi, 30.000 visitatori in totale desiderosi di approdare a Pitti per il 7 Gennaio con ancora il tacchino e lo zampone Continue reading
