Story & photos by Ivan Guerrero 
Olympia Le-Tan greets The Male Model Music Project and gladly poses beside her portrait as Silvana Mangano in 1949's film directed by Giuseppe de Santis; Riso Amaro (Bitter Rice).

The Male Model Music Project has attended Olympia-Le Tan/ Pitti W 9 Guest Designer's special event held at Museo Bellini located at the banks of the Arno River in Florence.
The young French designer, famous for her exquisite creations, presented  a capsule collection of 36 special edition bags inspired by her favourite Italian literature and film classics.
Along with the minaudiéres, a set of photographies (shot by Max Farago mostly) showing key scenes and iconic characters from the movies in question were on display, featuring the creations worn by various personalities and friends from the industry such as British actress Tilda Swinton, Olivier Zahm and Jalouse magazine Editor, Jeniffer Eymère, just to mention some.
An unforgettable evening enjoying a romantic and nostalgic atmosphere spiced up with sweet tunes from the past evoking the unforgettable epoque of the Italian cinema.
