The ever-stylish Food Writer Matilde Marzotto talks travel — including her favorite spot to swim with sharks — and why Iris Apfel is her icon. #ToryTunic
Simply casual, effortless and playful. My signature item is a pair of velvet furlanes (traditional slippers worn by Venetian gondoliers) — I have them in all the colors and wear them almost with every outfit.
And my secret styling trick…
Mix and match easy and more affordable pieces with more iconic ones.
First fashion memory…
Going with my mother to Chanel and helping her to choose suits.
Best fashion advice ever received…
“Don’t follow only the trends, remember always to reflect your personality with your style” — from my mother.
I love a great tunic because…
It’s a versatile item and can be personalized with different accessories, and it always looks new, never boring.
My tip to styling/accessorizing a tunic…
Add ethnic belts or necklaces, many rings and colored furlane slippers.
My favorite beach getaway in the world…
Philippines. It has the most amazing sea I’ve ever seen.
Swim with the whale sharks and relax at El Nido resorts.
My bohemian icon…
Iris Apfel. I had the opportunity to work on a project with her in New York and she is the most inspiring person I’ve ever met, simply a genius.
The color I most love…
Blue because it is the new black, much more modern and can be styled with so many colors.
What’s next for me…
I’m currently working on a digital foodie guide, Gourmet Brothers, with lots of interesting addresses of restaurants around the world.
