Santa Margherita Ligure – A Photographers Paradise

?? Läs det här inlägget på svenska

Less than a 2-hour drive from Milan on the Italian west coast, you find Santa Margherita Ligure. A genuine and sort of old-school vacation spot, like the ones you see in Italian movies! I really wish that you sometime during your life, spend a couple of your vacation days here – and I’ll give you 3 good reasons why.

1. Take a break from the beach, put on your comfy shoes (you didn’t read Crocs) and just walk

Santa Margherita isn’t just a tourist resort, it’s a vibrant town with its own native people. It takes you on breathtaking walks, and I don’t mean the beach walk. No, here you get your fair share of hill training! The town is built on a slope which faces the sun all day. If it gets sweaty? You bet! But you’re rewarded with a view that makes you never want to leave – the booty workout is just a bonus 😉

2. The Jet Set hub Portofino

Want a taste of La Dolce Vita? Then take the car or bus a few kilometers away, to world-famous Portofino. In this picturesque little fishing village, the yachts fight for your attention. And there’s a big chance you’ll see a famous face while you lunch on your ”Spaghetti al Frutti di Mare”. Portofino is a must for celebrities on their Mediterranean holiday.

3. Don’t forget your camera

Do you love taking photos, just like me? Then take your camera with you wherever you go. The landscape in Santa Margherita is so photogenic – as are the people. But don’t forget to be present with all your senses (I have to remind myself all the time). And the best way to practice that here? 

Go sit down in a bar and sip on your Negroni; listen to the Italians speak, and inhale the ocean smell…The smell of fish and seafood you’re about to eat soon. If you are in that moment, ”the power of now,” and also manage to capture it with your camera…Then you’ll have memories to share for the rest of your life.

I WALK, I LOOK, I SEE, I STOP, I PHOTOGRAPH

What Not to Miss in Milan – Healthy Food and Urban Agriculture

Milan Un Posto a Milano June 2015 Photography Annika Lagerqvist www.annikasomething.com
Läs det här inlägget på svenska

Fashion, food, and men in suits on Vespas. That’s typical things you would associate with Milan, right? But what if I say: Sustainable lifestyle, healthy food, and urban agriculture?

Because amongst cultural attractions, shopping, and aperitivo bars, there’s a small and quite surprising neighborhood in the heart of Milan. Only a couple minutes walk from Porta Romana, you’ll find Un Posto a Milano – “A Place in Milan”. A community project dedicated to traditional Italian food and culture. With its lush courtyard and orchards, this is one of the city’s oldest farms – transformed into a meeting place after having been abandoned for many years. And just because we’re speaking of transformation…..

Is it only me, or do you look better when you’re in Milan?!

I love Milan! The pulse, the people but especially, I love being inspired by the Italian women who are so proud of their roots in the fashion world. How they nonchalantly “I-just-threw-this-outfit-on-this-morning” sweep by in a Dolce & Gabbana dress and a Prada bag on their shoulder. They encourage me to also be proud of who I am and to be more confident to put myself out there a bit more. What can I say, Milan brings out the best in me 😉

But sometimes you need a break from fashion and museums.

Then Un Posto a Milano is the perfect place to recharge – like taking a trip to the Italian countryside. At Un Posto a Milano, they work closely with over 100 farmers to make sure they serve you only the best organic and local products. But don’t forget to make a reservation if you want to eat. During the weekends they’re usually fully booked for lunch, and yes; we made the mistake of not booking a table. But on the other hand, you won’t mind the wait when you get to sip wine and just enjoy the beautiful smells and surroundings in the meantime.

And since there’s a big chance you don’t want to leave this place, the good news is: you don’t have to. Just rent a room in their guest house and stay the night! Or two, or three…..

MFW September 2017 – The Models Off Duty – From Gucci to D&G

Sanne de Roo Models Off Duty Gucci Milan Fashion Week September 2017 Photography Annika Lagerqvist www.annikasomething.com

Can we even call it models off duty anymore?
When in fact the runway doesn’t seem to end after the show lights go off.

But when it comes to the model off duty style it’s not only about what they are wearing.

It’s more about the charisma in combination with their looks that we look up to,
whether it be a designer piece or a simple pair of jeans and t-shirt.

 

Here are my favorite photos I took of the models after the shows
during Milan Fashion Week September 2017

The Men who stood out the Most during MFW September 2017

Giotto Calendoli Armani Milan Fashion Week September 2017 Photography Annika Lagerqvist www.annikasomething.com

As more brands approach the mix-gender catwalk shows, so are the men approaching the street style scene at the Women’s Fashion Week. And it was so refreshing to see a little feminine touch to menswear, whether it be bowties or lace shorts.

We were also excited to see many men going both bolder in colors and volume!

Here are my favorite shots of the men who stood out a little extra during MFW September 2017

Milan Fashion Week September 2017 – In Milan, the coffee gets stronger, the nectarines sweeter and the ricotta creamier! As if that wasn’t enough, also the fashion is more fun!

We had six beautiful days during Milan Fashion Week September 2017  – both when it came to the weather and the fashion. We went on bumpy tram rides to all corners of the city to snap the most exciting street style, and we made a lot of new friendship along the way 😀

Considering a beard?

The beard trend is still going strong! And at Pitti Uomo, there was no exception. Here the men sported everything from short trimmed to a thick, full facial hair. That being said, you might wonder what style of beard would look the best on you? Considering the beard trends we spotted at Pitti Uomo 92, it seems as though you should opt for the longer and well groomed!

In all honesty, it’s probably not for everyone but hey, if you can pull it off…..Go for it 😀

16 Street Style Moments outside Trussardi Milan Fashion Week, February 2017

 ☀️

I love Sunday mornings in Milan, especially when it’s a cold sunny morning like this. It’s the end of February, but you can feel it in the air, that spring is approaching.

Written by: Annika Lagerqvist

Outside Palazzo Serbelloni on Corso Venezia, the traffic is heavy, and it’s not the best place for photographing. Guests are coming and also leaving quickly, and we all want the best street style pics, which means that you have to watch out! You don’t want to be hit by a car or cause any accident; however, we are all there for the same reason, so we help and look out for each other. That’s what I really love about being a part of these events!

Leonora Jiménez bringing the best Athleisure style all the way from Costa Rica to Milan Fashion Week, February 2017

Keep your Sweatpants on! Athleisure is here to stay, but there are some rules you need to learn about first:

 Guest writer: Malin Lagerqvist

It’s safe to say Athleisure has passed the stage of being a ”current trend” and become its very own category of clothing – finally! Did I hear an Amen ? For Spring/Summer 2017 you want your sweatpants to wave with the wind and let the ruffles take them from cross trainer comfy to catwalk ready! Inspired by the Costa Rican model and blogger Leonora Jiménez, photographed at Trussardi during Milan Fashion Week we are giving you some easy tips on how to take your sportswear out of the yoga studio and on to the streets!

Not being too thrilled about the Frills
But seeing how Leonora took on the Athleisure trend with these chic sweatpants really got me excited about rocking the ruffles. The key here is contrasts – giving the girly ruffles a sporty edge! Then choosing a bold color instead of the usual gray, or black pants will help to step up their fashion game. These green ones from Top Shop are definitely on my wishing list!

Sneakers vs. Heels
This is not a question! Leave your sneakers in the gym bag and put on a sharp heel  ?

Last but not least, let your hair down! Grab a clutch and swap your wind runner for a furry coat and you’ll soon be running the street style tracks as well as the treadmill!

Meet 10 Men on the Street Style Scene at Women’s Fashion Week Milan, September 2016

The Men at Women’s Fashion Week.

Guest writer Malin Lagerqvist

 

Express your personality through the way you dress.
More than ever before it seems to have become accepted even amongst the male community to experiment with your wardrobe. We’re not only talking a charismatic suit and tie combo. The men on Women’s Fashion Week are raising their unique style voice, exploring the boundaries of what’s considered masculine and feminine.
An excellent example of that is Simone Marchetti, Fashion Editor at La Republica, who’ve become a photographer favorite across the whole fashion week season.

And what about age?
That age is just a number has never been truer. We love how Antonio Manlio Nieto (the pictures above and below) is always radiating youthful vibrancy through his creatively colorful look still with the grace of a gentleman in his best years. Or the young guy Thomas Reichegger – the perfect example of that style has no rules and fashion is supposed to be fun, not taking it too seriously.

It may be the women playing the lead role on the street style scene during Fashion Week Month, but even if they’re standing in the center stage spotlight, the men don’t go unnoticed! In fact, in an orchestra of female stars, they sometimes shine even brighter than on their own Men’s Fashion Week ?

 

Antonio Manlio Nieto
Fashion Journalist and contributer for Le Temps Hors Série, who always bring the most stylish and colorful feeling onto the streets.

Follow Antonio’s passion for flowers and fashion on Instagram
@antoniomanlionieto

Robert Rabensteiner
Fashion editor of L’Uomo Vogue. Born in Meran, South Tyrol, Italy 1965, and has been described as one of the most stylish men in the world.

Read more about Robert in an excellent interview at The Talks
Or follow his diary on Instagram @robertrabensteiner

Simone Marchetti,
Fashion editor at Repubblica.it. He has a passion for bold prints and he really knows how to make it masculine.

Follow Simone on Instagram for more men style inspirations @marchettisimone

Thomas Reichegger
This German Fashion blogger always puts a smile on my face, he’s so funny and so good adding that little extra to his pictures or outfits. I think he’s one of the upcoming star on the men’s street style scene.

You’ll find Thomas on Instagram @thomas.reichegger
