My Pollini


CollaborationsLondonOutfits

When Pollini approached me to find “my Italy” in London to set my Pollini shoot, obviously food was the first thing I thought of. Italian food is really the soul of the nation for me.

Eat Amorino, King's Road, London, United Kingdom

Amorino Gelato

This gelato shop is famous for making each cone of frozen delight into a rose. You will probably have seen them all over Instagram. They really are as cute in real life, although it fails to convey the general yumminess!  They also make amazing frozen drinks (the kind with extra whipped cream), ice cream macaroons, focaccina, crepes and waffles. So basically it is heaven. Even on a cold day like the shoot, we were all stuffing our little faces!

There are several locations, all across Europe, just have a look here for your nearest one.

Pollini is an italian brand with a great history.  Since the 1950s they have been making the signature boot that I’m wearing here. A testament to lasting style and luxury. I love timeless pieces so they were literally a perfect fit.

 

Now Nicholas Kirkwood has taken over the directorship of the brand, he is fusing history and modernity into their designs. Every shoe has the solidity of quality but the aesthetic of a contemporary mind. I love his shoes, he seems to have taken back the classic shoe and made it his own.

 

Pollini asked me to find “My Italy” in London, to shoot “My Pollini” experience. I chose food, naturally! So we went to Amorino to have gelato. We shot for a morning, taking these stills and the little video you see here.  I hope you enjoy them both.
