Anna Dello Russo is undeniably a Fashion Week superstar, with street
style photographers and papparazzi making a stampede in her direction
every time she steps out (and she always gives them what she wants,
sometimes changing her striking outfits two or three times a day).
Everyone knows her for her love of eccentric hats and work with Vogue Nippon
and Vogue Italia
What most people don't realise is that she is the co-owner of chic
Southern Italian boutique Dante 5, a farfetch.com favourite and
Aladdin's cave of all things glamorous and eye-catching. Together with
co-owner Alessandra, the pair have set about realising their shared
childhood dream of opening up a store that exudes all that is fun and
exciting about fashion. We caught up with them at one of their raucous
in-store events to find out the story behind the shop, their must-have
labels for 2012, and why Anna loves to steal clothes from Alessandra...
