Ah, Giovanna! Pt 8 - Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Weeks

Ah, my favourite...Giovanna Battaglia!


Never one to shy away from colour, not only did she 'own' this Marni coat, she managed to do so clashing it with an unexpected print and loafers/slippers!

How absolutely stunning is this Gucci shirt dress below? I am in love...the colour, the billowy sleeves, the collar...ah, gorgeous!

I was so happy to see these glorious yellow pants once again! Remember them in my previous post HERE? And that gem-encrusted striped shirt is just brilliant!

Love the floral print of this Marni dress:


Although I am not a fan of the lace-up, I liked how Giovanna teamed this beige top with that cute printed skirt:

I like beige with bright yellow and red:

And I am all over orange at the moment (well, am on the search for a nice orange t-shirt and/or top/blouse), love it teamed with camel here, and such a gorgeous silhouette the 'wrap skirt' creates!

THE Equipment silk shirt:

When I first this picture below I was so excited, it looked just like the Equipment silk shirt I have had in my wardrobe for some time, and absolutely love. When I later saw the whole outfit, and that Giovanna practically had the same blouse as I did, I flipped (haha, yes, I'm easily amused). And how gorgeous is that jade Bvlgari purse?

Turns out Giovanna's Equipment silk shirt is slightly different from mine (hers is on the left, with a pocket and pointed collar), whereas mine has the rounded collar. I prefer mine without the pocket, but love the pointed collar on hers!

Great accessorizing:

Don't forget: last few hours to enter my Maille giveaway HERE. (I'm actually closing it tomorrow (Saturday in Australia) to ensure people on the opposite side of the globe don't miss out).

Hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!


  1. Another one of my style muses! I love seeing how she re-wears her different pieces!

    Have a fab weekend! :o)

  2. That equipment shirt is beautiful. Giovanna is fabulous at styling herself--but with her enviable figure she'd make a garbage bag look good.

  3. Bella Giovanna! There is one b/w pic which is truly so beautiful. She´s so inspiring!!! Thanks for posting, I have to copy some of these pictures into my "inspiration folder" :)
    Happy Weekend dear Brigadeiro!!!!!

  4. Oh i do adore Gio - wore the erdem a fair bit in the summer unfortunately too chilly now - wish i had the top too. Just back from night out so quick comment to say thanks so much for your lovely comment - the coat is Lanvin and it was this season pre - they showed it with a fur scarf but you can recognise it if you look at the lookbook. thanks again will be back for a good look soon xx

  5. What an amazing post - like opening a visual treasure chest! I adore Giovanna's style and the way she wears all her pieces with such aplomb. Outstanding x

  6. She's my fashion have too! As you can probably tell from how many times I post photos of her. BTW, I love the Equipment shirt. I've purchased a few this fall -- all colors -- but I would love that striped one! Did you get it this year?

  7. I mean fashion "fave". My auto correct keeps turning "fave" into "have"! Annoying.

  8. PretaPorterP - so true!

    The Photodiarist - Yes, I did. It was called the 'Sophie striped shirt', I just ran a quick search and you can still find it at:


    Hope one of these places have it in your size ;) I LOVE mine!
