Best looks At Milan Fashion Week
The last day is the best! We are all set for the first show – high heels, sunglasses and sparkling Swarovski clutches at 9 am in the Milanese fog. We order a taxi, sit inside and look for the address while the driver patiently waits. We can’t find it so we tell him to start driving. After 50 meters we tell him the address and he stops the car. “Ma e‘ qui!” he says, rolling his eyes to the sky, but it’s here! We were already where we wanted to be but we didn’t know… a good laugh is always a good start for the day ahead.
The highlight of the day is the Armani show. We are early enough to enjoy people-watching, and of course to have some pictures taken too.
Re Armani’s catwalk is a magical event. Sophia Loren graces the show, gems and crystals cascade down party dresses, a touch of red illuminates the normally almost severe pure lines, the soft elegance of the gowns exudes glamour.
You might wonder why we don’t have pictures of us sitting at the shows. It’s because we have standing positions! Being part of Milano Fashion Week is a privilege and we love every minute of it; for sure in the next years we will sit near Re Giorgio…or so we dream.
A Loft For A Pit-Stop
We need to get changed and go home for a very short break, but the light is so lovely and the cats so sweet…we can’t help taking a couple of pictures, while Beatrice makes coffee. Our momentary “changing room” is the home of a sailor we know, a guy who lives in Milan when is not on his boat, and who decorated the place with typical Italian taste, mixing old furniture with new pieces and art. If you like sailing and you are looking for great Italian holiday ideas, and more, click here.
Finally our break is over and we are ready for the last show, Angelo Marani. Our photographer, Adrian Rosu, joins the press area so early that he manages to catch the best position. He is mesmerised by the clothes and the girls so we can hardly drag him out. Luckily we propose him a pizza and that is the magic trick to go out and keep on visiting the Milan streets.
Best Street Style Spring 2016 Is …Everywhere
Death to Luxury, Morte al Lusso, says a wall graffiti near the station. We love to mix luxury and bargains, high end and affordable, new and vintage, people and ideas of contrasting environments. Do we sound a bit too hippie? No – harmony in differences is fun and we believe in it.
Goodbye to the Best looks of the Milan Fashion Week; it’s time to go home.
