Black and Brown

She’s military grunge with her beret, wrinkled bomber jacket, missing trouser button and gold-rimmed aviators. Crossing all sorts of fashion boundaries and breaking all kinds of rules, she still comes out looking put together — almost like she cut that pesky trouser button off herself (and who knows, maybe she did).

What’s more, I love her black, brown and gray mixture. I grew up believing that black with brown was a fashion no-no, but here, where nothing is forbidden (except a cappuccino after noon), Italians don’t live their fashionable lives by our small petty rules, and black goes as well with brown as it would with any other color… how refreshing!
