On Thursday the 24th I started my day at the C’N’C show. I couldn’t stop backstage to say hi and congrats to my friend Umbe, who is a women’s designer, because I had to run to Iceberg.


At Iceberg, Paolo Gerani brought to the catwalk double breasted coats and blazers, leather pants, furs and a touch of electric blue.


At 4:30 pm it was time for Blumarine, which surprised everyone with silver accessories combined with metallic, iridescent, and hologram pieces. The soundtrack by Azealia Banks and Mia gave the show an extra edge.

Bizarre Colorquake Flamboyant Personalities Allure by Mauro Grifoni

Next I attended a cocktail exhibition at the Mauro Grifoni store in Via Della Spiga: “Bizarre, Colorquake, Flamboyant, Personalities, Allure”, a special preview of Diana Vreeland curated by Maria Luisa Frisa and Judith Clark.

Time with friends

Right after, we went to Corso Como 10 for the i-D and Alberto Guardiani Party, hosted by Marcelo Burlon. At one point, you simply have to eat, and that is exactly what we did… a relaxed dinner with friends: perfect conclusion to my day.

Mila Schon

Coliac belt for this amazing Mila Schon outfit

Friday the 25th began with Mila Schon at 11.30. My true compliments to Biancamaria Gervasio, the young designer behind the brand. I fell in love with every single piece of the collection.

Afterwards I had a quick lunch break with Grazia Team at Cafe Verger (I love this place )

Jil Sander, last Raf Simon show for the brand

After lunch was the Jil Sander show – Raf Simon’s last show with the brand was just perfect. Simply, classy and elegant; I would love to have all the coats.

Ter Et Bantine

Ter Et Bantine was the last of the day, at least for me. Casual and concise are the keywords for this refined brand who chose eccentric hats to personalize the silhouette.

I ended the day with dinner and a movie at home!

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.

Palazzo Visconti hosted Elisabetta Franchi Dinner Party

Carilna @ Palazzo Visconti

Party @ Palazzo Visconti

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.

Karl Lagerfield & Silvia Venturini Fendi after Fendi show

Thursday started with Fendi, which brought amazing shapes to the catwalk based on furs and knee-length skirts.

Fausto Puglisi details

Fausto Puglisi dress

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.

Silk and Tiger for the DM (Dead Meat woman) collection

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.

unFLOP Paper launch cocktail @Marcelleria

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!
