Ciao Milano

Travel

Posted on

 

This is part one of my one day and first ever trip to Milan, thanks to Stedentrips, which was spent cramming in as many activities (aside from Fashion Week) into the limited time slot as humanly possible. The city felt like an Italian version of Berlin, warmer but with as much graffiti and a similar, random architectural mix of modern and old buildings. After having ruined the heel caps of my pumps thanks to the gravel in front of Fendi and me frantically running after Miroslava Duma to get a streetstyle snap, Anouk and I went back to the hotel to make the obligatory Fashion Week costume change and then head to Corso Como, a street we had both been dying to visit to check out the shops and the Corso Como Garden Café.

I can't even begin to tell you how utterly amazing the 10 Corso Como concept store is. If those Comme des Garçons coats, the Celine totes lurking in the background or the theatrical lamps haven't caused a fainting spell yet then there is something wrong with you. This is where I stumbled across and subsequently flung myself on the Nicholas Kirkwood black Picasso loafers worn above that I had given up on ever finding. Yes, I put them on immediately after buying them (I have worn them for one week straight). The entire store is more an art gallery featuring an eclectic mix of design, art and fashion. In fact it is intended to emulate a virtual narrative of a magazine layout.

As the hunger pangs set in, we tore ourselves away and went next door to Pizza di Porta Garibaldi to eat a delicious light lunch of bruschetta drizzled with olive oil accompanied by a small carafe of extremely deserved white wine. Afterwards we wanted to pillage, but instead just visited most of the stores on Corso Como. If you are ever in Milan, put Anteprima, an Italian label as well as Boule de Neige on your list in capital letters, a shop that sells a perfectly curated selection of designers including Issey Miyake.

Once we get started, Anouk and I are seriously on a roll. We decided to literally visit every last street to the point that even in flats, my feet were on fire. We of course visited the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuel II, the covered arcade featuring an intricate stained glass ceiling (more of that to come in the next post) that houses upscale shops, an endless sea of people and beautiful cafés. I haven't done such hardcore sightseeing since my honeymoon and I've only just described the first half of the day. More to come soon!

I was wearing a jumper from Pixie Market, trousers by McQ, Nicholas Kirkwood loafers and a Pucci bag. (Thank you Anouk for taking the photos!)

A really short post of what I'm wearing today. I've been combining camouflage, tie dye and neon a lot recently. It's a little frightening how many pieces in my wardrobe fit into one of those three categories. I've also been dressing like a boy for almost a month now. I'm suprised no one has started calling me Andreas yet since that's what my classmates thought my name was when I walked through the door on my first day of 4th grade.  I think I need to rediscover skirts and dresses, at least for a little bit. With this vest.

I want my lens back! Using my old camera makes me nothing but depressed.

I am wearing a vest by The Ragged Priest, a t-shirt by Merz B. Schwanen, necklace by Anton Heunis, jeans by Isabel Marant, sandals by Chloe and a bag by Pucci.

 

Ein extrem kurzer Eintrag über mein heutiges Outfit. Ich kombiniere jetzt schon seit einer Weile Batik, Camouflage und Neonfarben, am besten zusammen gewürfelt. Es ist etwas erschreckend, wie voll mein Schrank mit Kleidungsstücken ist, die in einer der drei oben genannten Kategorien passen. Dazu bin ich gerade am glücklichsten in Männer-Ensembles mit Absatzschuhen. Es ist, glaube ich, mal wieder an der Zeit ein Kleid oder wenigstens einen Rock anzuziehen. Dann aber mit dieser Weste.
Ich will mein Objektiv endlich wieder haben! Tiefste Enttäuschung breitet sich in mir aus, sobald ich meine alte Kamera in der Hand habe.

I trage eine Weste von The Ragged Priest, ein T-Shirt von Merz B. Schwanen, eine Kette von Anton Heunis, Jeans von Isabel Marant, Sandalen von Chloe und eine Tasche von Pucci.

This jumper is (excuse my language) a total mindfuck. I promise I found it at the Toast & Jam fair, along with a cashmere jumper featuring a bunch of penguins wearing bowties. It is so insane that it's crossed the threshhold into awesomeness. It's also feeding my love for bright, obnoxious colours right now. Since it is a sick mix of Barney and Dr. Seuss on acid, I had to wear it with a pair of tough boots and a buttoned up shirt underneath and of course the brightest bag in my closet: this Pucci python number. No, I promise I am not on drugs.

I am wearing a vintage jumper, a Zara blouse, Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply jeans, Surface To Air boots, a Pucci bag and a Moxham bracelet.

 

Dieser Pulli ist (entschuldigt den Ausdruck) so was von abgefuckt, dass er schon wieder geil ist. Ich habe ihn auf dem Toast & Jam Markt gefunden. Ich will gerade nur grelle Farben tragen also war es Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Weil er so ein grausiger Mix aus Barney und Dr. Seuss auf LSD ist musste ich ihn mit einem zugeknöpftem Hemd und extrem toughen Stiefeln kombinieren sowie der grellsten Tasche, die in meinem Schrank zu finden ist: diese Python Nummer von Pucci. Ich verspreche ich bin nicht auf Drogen.
