The Italian city of Milan is a place for aesthetes and design lovers.
Not only does it celebrate its own Fabulousness twice a year during Milan Fashion Week, it also attracts a slightly different cool crowd with its internationally renowned Salone del Mobile, a week of exceptional design that spans interiors, lifestyle, furnishings and not to be forgotten – Fashion as well

Milan Design Week lures a young, eclectic crowd to the city.
The event is often described as a “Fashion Week of Design”, yet these design aficianados come with a far more casual vibe than the sartorial set.
Naturally, denim, often torn, and sneakers reigned through out the week, due to the need to travel by foot long distances between installations and around the city
However, the occasional touch of seriousness showed up in long skirts for the women and tailored combos for the guys.
You’ll spot the difference between the Design Week crowd and the fashion crowd immediately: there’s less plumage, fewer straight-from-the-runway looks, and no Anna Dello Russo.
But there’s every bit as much reliance on a power handbag (think Celine and Alexander McQueen) and the graphic allure of monochrome.
After all, this is Milan !!
