Go-Go-Gio! W Magazine, October 2013
By Kristin Sekora
In this month’s "Gio’s Journal" in W Magazine, our wonderful gal is not content to be just her usual insouciant self (which literally means “I’m not troubled” in French). A visit to the residence of the Italian writer Gabriele D’Annunzio introduced her to the sign below, which Giovanna Battaglia recommends for every home: It is a quite naughty Italian expression meaning “I don’t give a fuck”!
Giovanna also featured a picture of herself in an authentic gondolier hat as seen above. She wishes New York’s Mayor Bloomberg would put a gondola in the Central Park reservoir so she could run a boat there. Don’t quit your day job, Gio! We need you on the fashion front — no part-time work for you ferrying tourists around the park.
Finally, influenced by the Claes Oldenburg show at the Museum of Modern Art, Giovanna fell for the museum store’s Hot Dog Yummypocket Pouch by Anat Safran, which would serve as a great cosmetic case or change purse. You can order it online (item 84783) or at the store on 53rd Street and if you’re a member of the Museum you receive a 10% discount!
