Shopping List: Aperitivo in Venezia

For the Venice Biennale, Veronika Heilbrunner would love to wear an easy going outfit with labels like Valentino, Saint Laurent, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana

All though the ways are short in Venice, they are not to underestimate. Hop into Vaporetto and hop out again, overtake picture snapping tourist groups, cross narrow bridges while necessarily taking offhand souvenir photos without sinking your iPhone in the canal again. It’s warm and sunny outside while it’s cool in the Biennale pavilions. Because this all sound almost like “work” my look especially has to be practical. The denim jacket (from Carhartt) with lots of pockets is a MUST! It also looks relaxed knotted on the hips or wrapped around the shoulders. Flat loafers (by Gucci) are another must-do and are best combined with a cropped flare jeans (by Valentino), a striped lurex shirt  (by Saint Laurent) and a chain belt (by Dolce&Gabbana).  The belt also looks great when worn over the closed jacket in the colder evening hours then it has a pretty 70s safari feel. My bag, in my favorite shape – the basket (by Victoria Beckham), even has space for the city map (yes, Google Maps can take a break). And I take a break at Harry’s Bar – a lot!
