Continuing on the subject of fashion:

You may think it an odd subject for a small dog, but I AM Italian.  For Italians, dog or human, fashion is everything.  And now that spring has sprung, both man and canine are sporting all sort of new trends.

And, like all roads, all trends lead to Rome.

Another Jeans ShotTake denim for instance.  Popular thought tells us that it was invented in a 17th century Roman city, albeit in France.  Nimes was the third largest city in the ancient Roman Empire and, at one time, the center of textiles in the western world. 

The weave was referred to as “de Nimes”…of Nimes.  Thus, “denim” was born.  arizona outlawAlthough Signore Strauss took it to new and popular levels with the romanticism of the American Cowboy, Italians have the upper hand when pairing denim.  A crisp white shirt, a crocodile belt and expensive Italian shoes say more about the comfortable self-assurance of the smart Italian man.  I'm a boots and jeans kinda GalShort wool jacket of any color, a good pair of heels and a stand out hand bag speak to the confidence of any woman.

Yes, it all began in the mind of a Roman citizen…Lulu on Denim…didn’t everything?
