Every year in April, Milan hosts what is known as the International Salone di Mobile, an event which has quickly taken the place of what fashion used to be for Milan, bringing in visitors from all over the world to see the latest in furniture and design. There are parties, openings, incredible things to see as well as awards given for the newest and best designs and designers.
We had invites every day and although I didn’t make it to all of them, I did go to quite a few..my favorite event this year being the one held at WP Store in piazza San Babila. (center of Milan)WP Store, best known for brands like Woolrich, Barbour, and Bd Baggies New York has become a leader in researching new brands with an exceptional quality.
WP Store is run by a very close friend of mine who has amazing taste in mens, women’s, and children’s clothing. Known for the warm winter Woolrich parka’s, I never would have thought that I could buy a silky little pink print dress at the same place. Of course with my little pink dress, I got little tiny pink bottles of Bellini spritzers, music by the best band ever and a peek at a master piece in the making with the ULTRADESIGN bicycles by Ultracicli being put together while I slurped Bellini from a straw. I ended up staying much later than planned..but then who wouldn’t?
Note: to see some seriously awesome pictures of the Ultracicli I suggest you go to their website as I
couldn’t drag them properly didn’t want to use their pictures without permission.
