Anna Piaggi, the Italian fashion writer, muse and
style icon widely known for her colorful eccentric
looks usually paired with a hat by milliner Stephen
Jones, passed away today in Milan aged 81.
Hailed as ”a fine poet in clothes” by New York's
living legend fashion photographer Bill Cunningham,
she was undoubtedly one of our greatest style icons.
Ciao Anna, we'll miss your jaunty approach 
as well as your accurate writing!


  1. she was a true icon! rip :(

  2. I was looking at one of the pictures from her younger days only last night... RIP.
