Wonderfully Weird. Kanarian Kindred Talks Us on a Joyful Fashion Stroll Through Italy!! Guest Blog!

Wonderfully Weird (Kanarian Kindred) is back for a fourth round of guest blog posts on fashion and accessories. This one returns to shoes– such amazing and incredible shoes that you will be biting a bullet or a belt to figure out HOW you could get these. They are just sinmply TDF (to die for).

In today’s society it seems everyone is chasing the next big thing, especially in fashion. Whether it’s the new Jordan’s, Prada slippers, or Louboutin’s, everyone wants a piece of top products. This is fine but what about those with a weird sense of style? The person that marches to the beat of their own drum, while straying from the normal fashion market.

Have no fear because Wonderfully Weird has arrived. The weekly blog posting various fashion items including: clothing, jewelry, shoes, and styling tips considered odd by others. My style is different from most because it focuses on funky, different, and classy pieces others tend to shy away from. Here is a small sample of my taste, and I look forward to sharing my works weekly with the group.

This week focuses on Italian fashion couture, including the various styles created over the years.

Rene Caovilla

A success story that started at the dawn of the twentieth century with pioneer Edoardo Caovilla who took a road that was halfway between craftsmanship and couture, with the vision and audacity to amaze the world. In the fifties his son René Fernando (born in 1938) developed his own inspiration by moving towards art and experimenting with a transversal approach.

He concentrated on the top end of the market and became a sculpture of sophisticated shoes, creating elegant jewelled creations and sensual, ultra precious chaussures. During these years, thanks to his high designer credentials, Caovilla established his unique style gaining an important place globally in the luxury shoes industry. Source link: Rene

Beauty is not always a synonym of thinness or vice versa. Mediterranean-style fuller women figures demonstrate it, and Elena Mirò collections are expressly created to dress their bodies stressing their wonderful curves. Elena Mirò has the merit to have been the first Italian fashion brand to make model on the Milan Fashion week catwalk sizes from 46 (the American size 12) up, a revolutionary decision for the world of fashion.

Elena Miro Collection

The historical Italian label of the Miroglio Group was launched in 1984, to respond to the needs of Italian women who don’t wear a size 8. Every woman has the right to show her femininity, and the world of fashion must allow it. This is the basic principle behind Elena Mirò philosophy and style. The strong motivation under the work of the Italian fashion house has led it to become a true icon of worldwide women’s fashion. Source: Elena Company Website: Elena

Mila Schon

Born Maria Carmen Nutrizio, in Traù (Dalmatia) – now Croatia – on September 28, 1915 to wealthy Italian aristocratic parents who relocated to the Italian peninsula when Schön was a child, she is known for her simple, modern clothes structured along classical lines.
After the First World War, the lands ruled from Vienna were redistributed and the family moved to Trieste, where she grew up and which she considered her home. At the age of 18, she left the city to join her brother in Genoa, moving once again to Milan in 1946. There, she met her husband, precious metals dealer Aurelio Schön.

In the postwar period, Schön enjoyed a brief return to wealth. She became a client of the most prestigious Parisian couture houses, first Balenciaga and then Dior.
