Fashion in Florence








Every January I head over to one of my favourite cities, Florence, for Pitti Uomo fashion show.  The past few years I have been very lucky and managed to capture a bit of sunshine whilst there.  Florence fills with the most beautiful people and wonderful brands and fashion literally fills the air.  This year I stayed in a lovely little hotel, Croce di Malta, right in the heart of the city.  The location is great, being only a five minute walk from the train station and ten minute walk to the Pitti show.  The rooms are classic, with stone walls and light flooding through the shutters.  It has an outdoor pool and although it does serve a great Italian breakfast, it is only minutes from the river, which is banked with stunning cafes.  I have never had a bad coffee in Italy and cannot get over how groomed everyone is, not like our London look.  Another lovely four days in this beautiful city.  I highly recommend a visit to everyone. xx
