I met Rachele a few years ago when she was a student here in Milan. She charmed me off my feet with her bubbly personality, and I was immediately impressed by her brilliant, unique style. She’s not the trendy type, she often opts for, elegant, beautiful, whimsical or custom tailored dresses. I would say that her style is a sort of “rich minimal, Simple and straightforward, yet full of lovely details and usually cut in a gorgeous silhouette. You can see for yourself in the outfits she chooses for our little shoot. Now please join me in getting to know her better.
