So Hot It Sizzi
Sofia Sizzi has a résumé any new designer would kill for. She started her career at Gucci, punched the clock at Donna and Calvin, and has consulted for Michael Kors and Jason Wu. Now, with the launch of Giulietta on February 14, Sizzi is going out on her own. The line takes its inspiration from Fellini's La Dolce Vita-era Italy and its crosscurrents of jet-set cosmopolitanism, Catholic guilt, and earthy sensuality. "There's a kind of veiled sexiness," Sizzi says of her collection. "Most of the pieces are quite covered up, but the fit is a bit of a tease, or the length is shorter than you'd expect."
