Our second interview dedicated to #donnedicaractere is with Anna Di Cagno, journalist and writer originally from Bari but now a fully-fledged citizen of Milan, and author of the book “Milano al femminile”. In this original and highly personal guidebook, the writer takes us on a tour of the city, exploring a number of quirky places where women can feel at home and soak up a truly unique atmosphere. A keen supporter of the philosophy “never overdo it” and with her own flowing elegance, Di Cagno has a very original opinion of Milan fashion and the great freedom it gives women, adapting to myriad different contexts. An example? Caractère’s revisitation of the classic black sheath dress that can be worn any time of the day and night by just changing a couple of basic details, like sandals, a piece of jewellery or a bag – as long as it’s always the real thing!
On her style, with Anna Di Cagno
In the brand’s Milanese sitting room, Anna Di Cagno talks about her take on fashion and how she sees it as a writer and journalist, also drawing on her personal experience as an educated, elegant and “eclectic” – her word – woman. Dressed head to toe in Caractère for the occasion.
Ten new short questions and answers that help give us an insight into a fascinating world full of nuances and contrasts. A world where you have to be willing to play along, without taking yourself too seriously.
