The very chic Francesca, Florence, May 17th, 2016
Il Capo! Carlo Montanaro, Direttore di THE LIFE
I've know Carlo for years, actually I think one of the very first photos I ever took in Milan was of him crossing via Manzoni looking dashing as usual. As you can imagine the Panerai @panerai luncheon ,in Florence last week, was full of chic gentleman
New friend Mr. Angelo Bonati, CEO Officine Panerai, @panerai that very charming, soft-spoken Italian gentleman that can't hide a burning passion for watches and boat racing. Another good reason to visit Florence as often as possible.

Does fashion fade?? I think the above image , shot by Amy Arbus in 1984, still looks as fresh today as it did when it first appeared in The Village Voice and yet it's very strong fashion not "classic style". In my event with @amyarbus tomorrow evening at the Strand @strandbookstore we will discuss
Spring and it's time for a bolder shoulder!
Ugh...I thought I'd get through the spring without buying an expensive @prada shirt but that blue Hawaiian shirt is calling my name! I love that it's cut shorter and that the fabric is so fluid ( sorry I'm just using this post to talk myself into buying this!)
Beautiful day in Malasaña, Madrid!
I love the tats and the dress but it's the delicacy of her hands that is so alluring. If you know any Spanish ladies with a dance background then you know just how beautifully they've learned to move their hands. @chiribitas

Another great look in Barcelona that is slightly vintage inspired. I'm feeling a kinda Donna Summers vibe going on here. #untaggable

In Spain, vintage is almost looked at like new clothes with a different style than what's currently in stores whereas in NYC vintage is more about associating with a mind-set and a concept of an alternativ
Uummmm...what was that safe word? #untaggable @audispain
Looks like it's about to be an #untaggablenight in Madrid! If I forget (and need to ask you guys) my safe word is shoestring @audispain
Finally I get a chance to introduce my audience to Amy Arbus @amyarbus a woman who's book "On the Street", is made up of a collection of images she took for The Village Voice, from 1980 to 1990. She shot street style before it was called "street style". Even though her choice of subject and style of
LOVE the old painted-tile storefronts of Madrid! I hate to sound like an old man but can't graffitist have a little respect for other people's art?
Madrid !!! So chic! I love her hair!
Shooting again in Madrid today and @audispain party tonight !!! #untaggable #Q2
I rarely ever shoot people with my phone but yesterday morning in Florence while I was running I saw this gentleman and just had to try! I think he was genuinely tickled by the Sight of an American tourist decked out in Nike running gear and telling him he was "Molto Elegante" and taking a photo of
On the Street...Tenth St., New York. Shot for Faces by The Sartorialist.
Would you believe it if I told you that @panerai let me make a watch with my own two long-fingered hands and that I was so excited that I held the phone in my mouth and filmed myself making the watch? Ok,ok, maybe those aren't my hands but it was pretty incredible watching the craftsman create these

This has been a crazy little trip, five cities in 7 days (except two of the cities I visit twice....it's a long story)
Thanks @panerai for the great hotel room and looking forward to today's events!
