[A]nna Dello Russo knows how to serve up a look. Even at 8am, she’s sashaying around her hotel suite in a pink maribou feather one shoulder dress, deliberating over the day’s accessories. “Feathers for breakfast!” she says. And why not?
The Italian empress of style is a reminder that in these serious times – fashion should always be about fun. Through the industry’s dramatic ups and downs, you can always rely on one thing – Anna is going to bring some high energy, humour and plenty of accessories to the occasion.
We’re here to talk about AdR Book: Beyond Fashion, Anna’s first ever book, published by Phaidon. It’s a treasure trove of fabulous fun – complete with flip book, dress-up paperdolls and extracts from her personal diary. Reflecting on her career as a stylist, editor and fashion icon – it comes at a time when Anna is embracing something we didn’t expect from her: minimalism. A mega clear-out of her closet (via a charity sale on Net a Porter) has been the beginning of a new chapter. We talked to her about nostalgia, technology and the future of fashion.
