This summer is shaping up to be quite the celebration of all things Italian. Prada’s IPO, Firenze4Ever and Versace dominated June, while so far, Masters of Style and Dolce & Gabbana (just launched their own etail site and now stocked at Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter) have taken over July. This weekend sees more Italia loving with the Ellesse heritage pop-up boutique (at 77 Redchurch St, E2) screening stylish Italian movie classics. Adding to the fun, Wah Nails will be on hand to add some suitably colourful cheer to your nails with a special menu of Ellesse-inspired designs (above).

I was chuffed to bits to be invited to Florence for the weekend as a guest of Luisa Via Roma. Taking part in the third Firenze4Ever blogger event, I got to gad about the cobbled streets of Florence, hob-nob with some of my fellow bloggers from around the world, style my own shoot with the first drop of autumn-winter collections, and stuff my face with cake at Mulberry’s book launch tea party.
