The third stop on the European adventure takes me to Milan Fashion week
After the buzz of pitti, its a short train ride to Milan, where i was staying that the Westin Palace hotel in milan.
Milan's purpose was to meet brands like Versace, Armani, and Diesel to do the buys for the iconic and also attend their fashion shows.
I have a love/hate relationship with Milan. when i was there in January i literally hated it, its very business like with a corporate feel. Plus it was freezing and dark! This time was different.
The sun was out and boy does that change the feel of the city! in between meetings and shows i made sure i did the tourist bits! The Duomo is always a must and every time i go to milan i make sure i climb to the top of it to really take in the city. Its only $15 and worth every cent.
Meetings went well and the shows were amazing! It was my first Versace show and boy the put alot of effort in! literally every guest was head to toe in loud versace prints!
Armani collection was a dream for me, a mixture of deconstructed tailoring, wide leg pants really got me inspired and i love the direction they are going in.
Bjork Brasserie- I loved everything about Björk. The warmth and the smiles of the those who work here. The attention and the care. The designer furniture typically of Nordic inspiration, with lots of light wood (Björk in Swedish literally means birch), the warm atmosphere but still chic, thanks to the lights and the accessories in colored glass, and the food. Obviously.
It’s a restaurant, store, brasserie and food shop. So you can eat, but also buy and take away to your home/office whatever the kitchen prepares. There’s a large social table at which you can sit in the most hidden dining hall of the locale, but there are also more intimate tables for two/four people, or there are also comfortable stools at the counter facing the street (ideal for a quick lunch or a pre-dinner aperitif).

A store really in step with the times ... maybe you will not be interested in vintage clothes and accessories from the 60s, 70s, 80s, but it is right that you are interested in the fact that part of the proceeds will contribute to projects for the support of poor countries. I always find something in here, on this trip i walked out with a vintage Burberry Trench coat for only $40!
