When fashion icon Anna Dello Russo (see biog below taken from Nowness) customised her beanie with a witty black net, we knew a trend had been born and an everyday object had transitioned into new-age chic. The Beanie is worn by those with confidence and cachet (witness David Beckham and Kristen Stewart - just two of the beanie's fans) and has become a byword for thrown-on style! New on the block is Urbansquire with quirky hand crafted wool beanies made in Britain with leather trims. An affordable must-have accessory this Winter to keep the cold out and the cool in!
With the ascendance of global street style blogs, images of Anna Dello Russo
and her adventurous sense of chic have flooded the internet and rapidly
become part of fashion’s visual vernacular. But for nearly two decades
before she became a public figure, the Bari-born Dello Russo—whom Helmut
Newton once described as a “fashion maniac”—worked behind the scenes,
first as a fashion editor at Vogue Italia and later as editor of L’Uomo Vogue (she’s currently editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue
Japan). Known for her dual trademarks of statement shoes and
stick-straight hair, Dello Russo’s sartorial escapades during the
various fashion weeks are ferociously chronicled by blogs such as Jak
& Jil and Violeta Purple, and her name has appeared on best-dressed
lists worldwide. She’s also made a splash on Twitter, with 50,000
followers and counting. An avid collector of clothes and jewelry, Dello
Russo currently lives with her dog Cucciolina in Milan.
