Anna Piaggi


The one and only fashion eccentric Anna Piaggi has passed away today in Milan aged 81. Another true style icon, always colourful and avant garde, she defined the 80s and put fashion into Italian households with her work in Italian Vogue "D.P. Doppie Pagine di Anna Piaggi". A muse for Karl Lagerfeld and responsible for discovering many designers and making them into international brands, such as D&G.

I am so glad that i managed to see the Piaggi: Fashion-ology at the V&A back in 2006. An exhibition dedicated to her "art of fashion".

Goodbye Anna, or more appropriate Ciao!
