My name is Victoria Montanari, also known as Vicky :) I am 26 years old and I am based in Lisbon.

We love your style and would like to know who or what inspires you.

Thank you so much. I have always been passionate about fashion, since an early age, so I would say that it’s an inspiration that comes from inside. Nevertheless, I’ve lived in different countries during my life, and the life and colors/moods of these experiences also mark my style and inspire me to create different looks and combinations.

In terms of people, I love to follow “fashion experts” that help me bring a new perspective of combinations at my wardrobe, Leandra Cohen and Blanca Mirò are some of these people.

A perfect plan for the weekend

Spend the day at the beach with my friends and a seafood lunch, getting dressed and going out for some drinks!

Three things/experiences/people that make you happy?

A place you always come back to


Your favorite restaurants in Lisbon?

Da noi is for sure my top 1, a must-go. Panda Cantina if you are a ramen lover like me and Cervejaria Ramiro for a fun seafood dinner with friends. But Lisbon has a lot of great places to eat, it’s hard to choose and new great places open all the time!

As you live in Lisbon, what are the TOP 5 things you would recommend doing there?

Depends on the time of the year that you are visiting, but focus on summer since it’s almost here.

A great plan is to grab a taxi boat in the afternoon and watch the sunset on the way to the restaurant Ponto Final, enjoy dinner looking at Lisbon from the other side of the river, it’s unforgettable.

Stroll around Principe Real, you will find cool concept stores, cafés, restaurants, and vibe. It’s my favorite neighborhood for sure. Depending on the day there are markets in the garden.

During summer, you can enjoy cool beach clubs in Costa da Caparica (like Casa Reia, Praia do Irmão, Posto da Onda), spend the day there, and have a great lunch and some afternoon drinks.

Spend the day in Sintra, which is located 1 hour from Lisbon Center, and it looks like a fairy tale. You have a lot to visit there, like Palacio da Pena and Quinta da Regaleira.

Visit Castelo de São Jorge and then see Lisbon from Mirador de Santa Luzia. You will appreciate Lisbon from another perspective and see all the little colorful and typical houses.

Your favorite Svetis

I love ALL of them, but for sure the Mary Jane model has my heart, in all colors and patterns.
