What colour hat are you choosing to wear this summer? I chose red as a symbol of passion for life. For many years red has been a colour that is in my DNA. My heritage is Italian and red has always been in my life.
Ferrari red has always been my favourite choice of red. Hats are worn often in Venice. So to compete with Venice architecture, I decided to opt for Amasa Vita felt Red Hat due to the style and colour.
I wanted to stand out and match the richness and opulent lifestyle of Venice.
My Dao silk dress looked fabulous with the red hat.
I chose a red felt hat from Stetson to represent my passion for the opulent lifestyle of Venice. This is a city where one must trend and wear hats. What does your hat message say about you?
Once I was allowed to move within Europe I chose Venice. The heart and soul of a city on water.
My white maxi dress is from Vietnam. Looks fab with the red hat. Hats are such a powerful statement when out and about in Venice.
Dating back a thousand years I needed to connect with man-made cities. Venice is actually an outdoor museum.
The picture was taken at Ego Boutique Hotel Grand Canal Venice. That is the famous Rialto bridge in the background.
I walk around 15km a day for one month as Venice is a city that can only be accessed by foot or boat. Regarding fashion photography, the choices are endless here in Venice.
Walking around Venice is mind-blowing and stunning. During Summer one needs a hat to keep that sun at bay.
This is the famous Grand Canal in Venice.
Stetson Europe Amasa Vitafelt Red Hat
Stetson Europe is a brand I have worked with for a few years now. The quality of a Stetson hat will last a lifetime. They are comfortable and everyone knows the brand power regarding high-quality hats. They always look and feel amazing.
Piazza San Marco, where tourists flock to be seen and take many images of themselves. I am looking at the famous Piazza San Marco square.
Often people sit in the square to admire the beauty and history. It is a live open-air catwalk when it comes to showing off your street-style.
Today I opted to team my Stetson Amasa vitafelt red hat with silk green. Lots of people were staring at me and I know it was due to the red and the cowgirl style hat.
Felt is not a fabric I would normally choose to wear during summer. But to be honest it was more than durable at 30 degrees. This is the famous Rialto bridge in Venice, where everyone wants a photo. I decided to do things a tad different.
My silk dress is from Metiseko.
Here in Venice hats are often worn during summer. When in Venice one must take a gondola. These gondoliers are always wearing straw hats. if I could restyle the guys I certainly would be choosing a red Stetson hat instead.
The guys wanted to swap hats, they recognised the Stetson brand. It is a famous brand for many years.
On average the interior design of a gondola is normally red.
If you are seeking a place to venture during this Covid 19. Head to Venice, historically the city has not been this quiet in about 30 years. I took this image a week ago at 12 pm.
To see Piazza San Marco this quiet during Summer is like finding a Stetson hat out at sea.
