As Antonella tells it, her signature style was born of a desire to dress for her body shape more than anything else. As much as she may have wanted a Latin body with curves in all the right places, and a super-feminine wardrobe to match, she just always felt more comfortable in minimal tailoring and a simple palette, which is probably why pieces she wore decades ago look just as chic today.
“I find that a satin t-shirt is a great alternative to a cotton one, and looks very polished under tailoring.”
“I didn’t think I could carry off leather leggings, but Laura convinced me, and I have to say they are now one of my favourite staples. I wear them as I would jeans, with simple, quite loose pieces.”

“I picked up this satchel on a recent trip to London and it reminds me of the styles I carried in the 70s. I also love that there is no logo – I don’t tend to buy anything with a big logo.”
