It was a whirlwind trip to one of my favorite cities for beauty & business: Florence. Here are some highlights below.
The muted colors of Florence are breathtaking. Shot from the Ponte Vecchio.
Nothing better than Italian coffee and Sophia Loren.
The Sala delle Muse at Palazzo Tornabuoni (a restored Medici palazzo) where I stay. The first opera was held in this room in 1598.
The Catedrale. I love finding different variations of quatrefoils throughout the city.
Jewels & Tarts.
The heavenly Villa San Michele designed by Michelangelo in Fiesole where I studied when I was 20.
After lunch at Villa San Michele - one of the best views of Florence.
And finally, down to business. Visiting our Florentine factory to design a new collection.
