SARA GATTONI AKA WINGS OF NORTHERN WIND
This week we are meeting Sara Gattoni, an Italian girl moved to London, who is conquering the fashion scenario of the UK capital.
We have chosen to portray the lovely Sara because we think that she embraces the true spirit of the #iamitalianscouting project: fashionable, willing to challenge herself and innovative. Her blog is a rising start and we wish her best of luck for her future projects.
Name: SaraSurname: GattoniAge: 28
Where are you from: I’m from Pesaro, Valentino Rossi’s birth place (everybody is talking about him recently)
Describe yourself using a few words: I’m a funny and positive person, always fair, messy and anxious. I hate injustice. I love my friends.
Describe your blog using a few words: After 3 years doing my PhD, I was feeling depressed and constrained. One day I decided I was going to do something for myself. That’s how my blog started, from the need to reach beauty in my life, narrate my everyday life with a touch of creativity and add a bit of colour in it. Beauty is simple, we find it everyday. It can be in the landscapes, the colours we see, the emotions and even our clothes. But sometimes we are just too worried and busy that we do not realize what we have and beauty disappears. Having to write it down makes me realise what I’ve got everyday. It started as a fashion blog, now It’s telling my life.
Where does your inspiration come from?: London is my inspiration, with the infinite oppurtunity it offers. I’m inspired by what I like in that precise moment. It can be a song, an autumn landscape or a pair of socks!
What does “fashion” mean according to you?: I am a mathematician, moda is the number that occours more frequently. In other words, it’s that thing that loads of people have. In this sense I don’t really like it. But I love style, your personal touch, it can become fashionable but you are not wearing it because it is fashionable.
Tell us about your first pair of sunglasses: A pair of glittery violet Armani. I was downtown with my mum and after mentioning them 100 times I run her down!
This season must-have: A coloured warm poncho and a pair of Docs (Dr. Martens)
Your motto or favorite quote: When you smile at the World, the World smiles at you! ! (I do it everyday, try and smile to the people on the street.. I promise they will smile back!)
