Walking through the cities of Italy, it is difficult to miss the “map” motif on purses, shoes and belts that adorn the beautiful Italian men and women. The Italian fashion designer, Alviero Martini designed the brand 1A Classe that has been a staple in Italian closets for years and now is making worldwide fame. The designer continues to reinvent and revamp the beloved Italian brand. Especially in the United States, celebrities such as Misha Barton, young professionals and college students have been seen wearing 1A Classe around town. More information visit www.alvieromartini.it.
Also on the Italian scene- Dolce & Gabbana launched “The One Sport,” a new fragrance for men, in February. The One Sport follows 2008's The One for Men and 2010's The One Gentleman. The fragrance adheres by the philosophy that Sport is a self-challenge: a route to fitness, for ourselves as much as for others. http://www.dolcegabbana.com/dg/perfumes/the-one-sport/man/.
