Hip and haute in their fur jackets

Top: Style icon Giovanna Battaglia, editor of L'Uomo Vogue, shot at Fashion Week in New York. Haute-bourgeoise perfection.

Bottom: Young woman in vintage fur jacket over layers, plus double-sided scarf. Offhandedly hip in a Stockholm park.

I love the way both fur jackets are worn, almost like shrugs, open and loose.

And Madonna, those earrings of Giovanna's!

I love this look as well, altho' I don't think I'd try it here on our Wet Coast where it wouldn't make too much sense . . .

You beat me to posting the Giovanna picture which I've just been in awe of since I saw it. This is SO chic, and yes, those earrings...TDF!!

Isn't she gorgeous? I love the blouse under too. And such a beautiful face. Sooooo Milanese!

I don't know much about her but am starting research right now.

GP: Check The Sartorialist; she is a favourite of Scott Schuman's.

materfamilias: My blog IS snowy winter-centric these days, as we're fully in its grip.

Pseu: Fur and tweed- such a relaxed way to wear a beautiful jacket.

It seems Giovanna is the editor of the Italian publication Vogue Uomo (Gentleman's Vogue). So that's why The Sartorialist catches her at the international fashion shows.

One of my favourite Italian women d'un certain age is Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue Italia. She is in her 60s, very artistic and truly beautiful. I love her looks almost as much as I dislike Anna Wintour's.

GP: Giovanna B. is identified as such in the first paragraph of my post.

Franca Sozzani is certainly a different type than Anna Wintour!

Oh yes now I see! And here I am attempting to complete a PhD!

Your blog is such a wonderful escape for me these days. Thank you.

Wow! I am going to start wearing my vintage mink jacket in a similarly nonchalant way.

Poor daughter, I just told her that she can't take the mink jacket to school.
