“Black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony” (Coco Chanel)

This is a special annual edition that describes and proffers up inspiration for special moments and moods.
The Italian Touch / White Edition is the story, in 64 pages, of modern style, elegance, and couture fashion. In hairstyling, as in fashion and culture, the inspiration we offer draws and reflects upon the most important events in our lives. Alessia Solidani’s hair fashion collections are found between reports on trends and art: the centuries-old history of Swarovski, the fabrics of the most beautiful clothes of the past 50 years, the tradition of superior craftsmanship and Italian design, and an interview with the most important flower designer in the world.

White is not, however, just a luxury magazine, because just as elegance is not dependent on money but is, instead, the antithesis of vulgarity and slovenliness, luxury is not just about cost, value or the rarity of something, but is the freedom to choose and decide upon which world to live in. Even more importantly, during ceremonies and important moments in life, as Coco Chanel was wont to say: “Style must reach the streets and daily life, otherwise it’s just fashion. And while fashion passes, style remains”. We try to explain this concept in this new publication.
