One of the best things about February Fashion Week in Milan is that often it coincides with the coming of Spring… You start to see colorful and floral looks, and it seems that everybody allows themselves to be more relaxed.
As a good start, on Wednesday I went to Numèro 21 show, which is actually one of my favourite brands.
Right after, I was invited to the opening of the first Vionnet shop in corso Monforte.
Around 8.30 pm I had dinner at Palazzo Visconti, followed by a party hosted by Elisabetta Franchi. The music coming from Dj Seth Troxler and Marcelo Burlon was totally fascinating. We closed the dancefloor with a special song in memory of Whitney.
As usual, we ended the night with a goodnight drink at the bar Hotel Principe di Savoia.
Thursday started with Fendi, which brought amazing shapes to the catwalk based on furs and knee-length skirts.
After Fendi, I went to have a quick look at the new Fausto Puglisi AW collection. Leather, studs, embroidery, rhinestones, but also optical patterns and fluorescent colors: all this together was really photogenic.
After a quick lunch at Grazia Pop Up, I had chat-tea with my friends from Dead Meat. They were presenting their new collection, which is based on the figures of princesses like Maria Callas and Romy Schneider. Graphics are as always full of imaginative and literary references.
At 5 pm was the start of Jo No Fui, with the amazing Arizona Muse and a special attention to color combination.
At 8 pm I ended the day at the launch cocktail party of unFLOP paper 3; they also presented a Short Film by Silvia Morani and an exclusive art cover plus vinyl by artist Simon Fujiwara.
More to come!
