Your Sunday Trends Chronicle: 8th October
Uncovering Gaiter Boot Revivals, Glamorous Brands, Music Remixes, and More!
Welcome to this week's edition of Week In Trend - The Sunday Newspaper. While you dive into the news, I'm out there running 5km for a good cause. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and every bit of support counts. Remember, it's not just stylish but also trendy to contribute and educate yourself and others on this crucial issue.
Now, let's get back to the world of fashion. What's fresh this week? What are the next big things to keep your eyes on? Well, we're about to explore all of it together.
Back to the Future: Gaiter Boots Return, Courtesy of 2012
Boots have always been a go-to for the autumn and winter seasons, even though in Milan right now feels more like it's in the midst of spring. But guess what? Gaiter boots are stealing the spotlight as the 'it-girl' must-have for the season.
Remember those Givenchy Shark boots that everyone was crazy about back in 2012? Well, it's déjà vu a whole decade later! So, if you've got a pair hiding in your closet, consider giving them a fresh look or cashing in on their value by selling them on platforms like Vinted or Vestiarie Collective. You're pretty much guaranteed a sale and a chance to pocket some extra cash. Whether it's the rugged charm, street-style vibe, or the revival of grunge and rocker chic, these boots are making a comeback, strutting their stuff on streets and screens. You'll find tutorials online that'll show you how to whip them up using old denim jeans or pick them up from various high street stores.
But what's the deal with these boots? Originally, they were meant to protect your calves during horseback rides or winter sports, but nowadays, it's all about the aesthetics. You can snag them in low, mid, or over-the-knee styles. The trick? Wear them however you like. Whether it's a classy combo with a mini skirt or dress, a casual pairing with trousers, or even a laid-back look with a tracksuit; these boots are up for anything, and they always add a touch of effortless style.
Brands to Keep an Eye On: Sleep No More - Made in Italy
Sleep No More - Made in Italy, a brand born in Milan in December 2020, effortlessly combines heritage and innovation, comfort and elegance. Founded by sisters Lucia and Martina Alai, the brand epitomizes quality, style, and attention-catching colours, all showcased through their glamorous prints on 100% silk satin.
The brand's inception during the 2020 lockdown was a response to the evolving fashion landscape, blurring the lines between homewear and prêt-à-porter. Their creations are nothing short of extraordinary, offering elegant yet comfortable garments that elevate the female silhouette with the pure sheen of premium silk satin and unique prints.
What sets Sleep No More apart is its ability to bridge the gap between the relaxing routines of home life and the vibrant social scenes outside. The trendsetting 2.0 pajamas, designed to be worn beyond the home, are a testament to their versatile approach to fashion.
In addition to these iconic pieces, the brand continually expands its collection, introducing imaginative creations like the All-in-one skirt—a versatile and incredibly chic addition to their lineup.

Song of the Week: "Ancora" by Mina but Remixed
For the first time ever, I'm suggesting an Italian song to you, which is quite out of character for me... But when you mix in a classic, a truly iconic singer, Mina, and the king of producers, Mark Ronson, along with a touch of Gucci style, here's the remix that you absolutely must listen to without pause.
Unfortunately, it's not available on platforms just yet, so I'll provide you with the original version first, followed by the remix. The decision is yours. Let me know.
