WInter Solstice, a Symbol of Rebirth

December 21st; the perfect time to update your wardrobe

It’s the shortest day of the year but that doesn’t mean it has to be the darkest. In fact, the winter solstice (this year on December 21st at 5.23pm Eastern Time) has been a time for good wishes and renewal since ancient times. The winter solstice (from the Latin ‘solstitium’ - taken from sol, meaning ‘sun’ and sistere, meaning ‘stop’) is the moment when (in the Northern Hemisphere) Earth’s North Pole is at its furthest point away from the sun because of the way it tilts; making our days shorter and our nights longer.

During the winter solstice the sun appears even more vital in the following days. That’s why the ancient Romans gathered for “sol invictus” celebrations, which some believe may be the pagan origin of Christmas. The most famous symbol of solstice is possibly Stonehenge, in Great Britain. This prehistoric circle, featuring several 50-ton stones, has been the center for astronomical gatherings for thousands of years because of the way that it was built to be aligned with the sun. During the solstice the sun rises above the Heel Stone, creating a magical spectacle, which attracts thousands of visitors each year.

With the show put on by the sun, appearing for just a few hours, the season of renewal begins. After the shortest day, the days will gradually get longer. So it’s the ideal time to think about making changes, big or small, including renewing your wardrobe. A perfect way to renew is with elevator shoes, boots and sneakers from GuidoMaggi. As a curious side note, the winter solstice is when the sun is at its lowest arc in the sky, meaning our shadows are longer than at any other time of the year, giving a feeling of strength and vitality; renewed strength for the year ahead, enhanced by GuidoMaggi elevator shoes.

Reality 80 - the “Special Effects Decade”on Show in Milan

Discover an exhibition that relives the opulence and optimism of the 80s, at the Credito Valtellinese Group Gallery in Milan until February 23rd 2019.

From December 20th 2018 until February 23rd 2019, Reality 80 will be on display, offering a chance to rediscover what Umberto Eco, duringTangentopoli, defined as the “special effects decade”. This was a golden age for Milan, which has since become the political and economic center of power and the capital of culture and fashion. The exhibition - curated by Leo Guerra and Cristina Quadrio Curzio, with the scientific advice of Valentino Catricalà and Mario Piazza - is a kaleidoscope of images, ideas and memories of a city and its success in all areas; from society and entertainment to arts, design and graphics.

Reality 80 opens with the slogan created in 1985 by Marco Mignani for the advertisement of Amaro Ramazzotti: “Live, love and enjoy Milan...Drink Milan”. In the exhibition, stories and figures from the 1980s are intertwined in an ad hoc setting that maps significant events from the period, such as the 1981 attack on Pope Wojtyla and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Alongside images and art are cult items that characterized the decade, including arcade games such as Pac-Man, and the colorful selection of treats, gifts, gadgets and other objects from the Paninari generation.

The exhibition will be held at the Credito Valtellinese Group Gallery in Corso Magenta. Just a short distance away in the Brera district - the beating heart of what was (and in some ways still is) the “Milano da bere” (Milan’s nightlife district) - GuidoMaggi has opened the world’s first luxury elevator shoe store, inside a historic 18th century building. This striking location, on the first floor of 18 Via Fiori Chiari, is perfect for discovering the rich collection of elevator shoes, hand painted and made with the finest leathers, as well as the refined Goodyear stitching technique.

Either before or after the exhibition you can immerse yourself in the elegant, comfortable world of GuidoMaggi, where the best of “made in Italy” -including innovative design, colors and styles for every taste and need - becomes a reflection of the enthusiasm and success of the “special effects decade”. At the GuidoMaggi showroom, with the help of Annalisa and Marco, you will be able to choose from a range of elevator shoes to suit your needs and the occasion, including collections of sneakers, boots and classic styles.

Total Denim: Be Daring with Denim Shirts to Denim Shoes

Whether it’s a denim shirt, classic jeans or denim shoes, the total denim look is a hot new trend in men’s fashion right now. Be daring and find out how to style this all-denim look… 


It appeared in the summer and it’s continuing to top the trends this winter. The all denim look is back and that means denim shirts, denim jeans and even denim shoes, all topped off with a trendy denim jacket. It may sound like denim overkill but this season it’s right on trend.

Jeans have been a wardrobe staple for many men for many years because of their easy-to-wear style, as well as comfort, durability and convenience. So it makes sense to build upon this favorite casual trend and branch out into other denim pieces. But even more exciting is the fact that any of these individual denim pieces can be worn on their own with other styles, giving you a trendy way to update classic pieces. For example, an on-trend denim shirt will look stylish with a pair of beige or even dark colored chinos. A comfy pair of denim shoes are also ideal for wearing with other outfits, including your favorite chinos, giving you a fashionable new look that’s comfortable and easy to wear.

Advantages of the Total Denim Look

First of all, it’s jeans - what’s not to love. They’re comfy, casual and are a go-to piece for lots of men around the world. Secondly, jeans can go with a variety of looks, from casual to smart, depending on the style.

Add in your other denim pieces, such as a shirt, jacket and shoes and you’ve got yourself that total denim look that can have a elongating effect on your stature, making you appear taller and slimmer if you opt for denims in the same shade.

Another advantage is that denim can be worn all year long - it’s not a season-specific trend. It can be worn in both summer and winter. 

Denim Shoes for a Total Denim Look

A total denim look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of denim shoes. You may already have the denim shirt, the jeans and the denim jacket but the denim shoes can add that finishing touch to your outfit and can be perfect for any casual style.

Handcrafted elevator sneakers can give you the luxury leather and trendy denim finishes to keep you looking stylish but, importantly, can also increase your height by a couple of inches. Wear them with a total denim look to stay on trend or mix and match with your classic wardrobe staples to create a unique look that’s tailored to your personal taste and style. A pair of denim sneakers could become your new favorite jeans and go-to casual style.

There are many ways to style this season’s leather outerwear, depending on the look you’re going for.

The summer is here and that means trying to figure out what clothes and shoes you need to take on your summer vacation. This can often be a challenge, especially if you don’t feel tall enough.
