They say the best runway is the one on the streets. The runway is where the official action happens, but it is on the streets that real style, worn by real people, is born. In “A Study In Street Style”, we turn the spotlight on some of the most notable street style stars of industry. If ever you’re dry on outfit inspiration, just check back here. We guarantee you’ll leave with at least a handful of styling ideas. That, or your (imaginary) money back.
If you’re looking for someone with a personal style that is easy like Sunday morning, but not at all lazy, look no further than Diletta Bonaiuti. While she is oft spotted arm-in-arm with the usual suspects from Milan’s powerful street style set that includes Gilda Ambrosio, Bonaiuti actually hails from the romantic, majestic and cosier city of Florence. Perhaps this is the reason why Bonaiuti’s style speaks of an effortlessness and ease. No loud elements here.
A stylist and consultant by trade, Bonaiuti’s creative eye has made it into the pages of Punkt Magazine, Odda Magazine and L’Officiel Italian and campaigns and lookbooks of brands like Wandler, Les Petits Joueurs, Caftanii, Colaic and multi-label retailer Luisaviaroma. These all make it onto her Instagram, but of course, it is snaps of her own style, typically shot quite simply – there’s that ease, again – that stand out. It is the kind of feed you look through when you need to look at wardrobe classics in a different light.
Some days she’s in a linen or corduroy suit, others a simple knit top, a featherlight midi skirt and a scarf. Sometimes a pair of lace-up flats, other times in ruched boots and boilersuits. In describing her style, Bonaiuti tells MATCHESFASHION that “less is more”. Now, here’s a woman that is right after our own heart.
