You’ll often see Patricia Manfield at fashion week with fellow street style stars Gilda Ambrosio and Diletta Bonaiuti, and on the arm of her partner and boyfriend Giotto Calendoli. This Russian-born Italian beauty doesn’t have a definite style and that element of surprise is what we love about the 24-year-old. One minute you’ll see her in a prim and proper Dolce & Gabbana dress, then a leather mini skirt with an oversized Vetements hoodie, and the next day in an embellished Emilio Pucci spliced dress for daytime dressing.
Once a law student of FEDERICO II University in Napoli, Manfield decided to pursue her interest in fashion by studying Central Saint Martins and setting up The Atelier two years ago. Born to a family of musicians, Manfield is now co-producing and recording her debut album in London. In the meantime, we’re loving her covers of Rihanna and Britney Spears (and how she looks so cool in that 90’s Fila t-shirt and moto jacket).
