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.
Been lock down for 12weeks in a confined space in Andorra was insane. Not been able to access outside and move around had an effect on me.
Once I was allowed to move within Europe I chose Venice. The heart and soul of a city on water.
Dating back a thousand years I needed to connect with man made cities.

To be reminded that nature and man work hand in hand. I walk around 15km a day as Venice is a city that can only be accessed by foot or boats. 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.
Hats are worn here often in Venice. So to compete with Venice architecture,I decided to opt for Amasa Vitafelt Red Hat due to the style and colour.
I wanted to stand out and match the richness of Venice.
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.
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 that durable at 30 degrees.
This is the famous Rialto bridge in Venice, where everyone want’s a photo. I decided to do things a tad different.
Here in Venice hats are often worn during summer. When in Venice one must take a gondola. These gondolier are always wearing straw hats. if I could restyle the guys I certainly would be choosing red Stetson hat instead.
The guys wanted to swap hats, they recognised the Stetson brand.
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 12pm.
To see Piazza San Marco this quiet during Summer is like finding a Stetson hat out at sea.
