picasso at palazzo reale

decided to enjoy today’s day off school by visiting the palazzo reale to see the picasso exhibit.

it was amazing to see the paintings that you learn about in art class. with over 200 works borrowed from the  Picasso museum in paris, the exhibit was impressive and inspirational. some of his most famous pieces, such as The Celestina, Man with a mandolin, Portrait of Olga, and Paul as Harlequin were on display. From paintings to sculptures, this exhibit is not to be missed.

it will run until the 6th of january, so not to worry… you’re still in time.20121204-231811.jpg
















vintage cool.

if it’s one thing we don’t have a lack of here in the navigli it’s vintage stores, and in these overcrowded vintage havens there is never a lack of kindly used sunglasses – and you never know, robert redford or audrey hepburn could have been their previous owner.

scandinavian aesthetic

I am a huge fan of scandinavian design aesthetic. It’s clean, minimalist and utilizes basic shades like whites, blacks, browns, and grays, only sometimes adding a touch of bolder colors.

galleria carla sozzani exhibit

went to the photography exhibit at galleria carla sozzani on saturday.

was definitely a nice way to spend an evening in milan, however the exhibit was smaller than i anticipated – you don’t need more than 20 minutes to see everything…. but if you haven’t spent some time at 10 corso como, you should take advantage and check the amazing collection of items here.

It breaks down cities into categories such as: food, shop, after dark, culture and hotel. They also feature several other cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Miami, Vienna and so forth.

dior: as seen by





20121104-024906.jpgfinally made it out to the exhibit. through the cold and the rain, we found ourselves in the magic of the “dior as seen by exhibit”. amongst the creative handbags and the impressive and edgy images, was an ambiance we initially expected from milan – cool, trendy, chic.

my favourite part of the exhibit was entering the dark screening room, where you were able to see shots of celebrities carrying the dior handbags, and more importantly, the short film clips starring marion cotillard.

simply entertaining. if you are ever in milan, we are 100% that you would love the exhibit.
