burberry prorsum men’s aw’13

shown right here in Milano.

two-for-one

I really love the cambridge satchels (the originals made by the cambridge satchel company) they are simple, easy, an accessible price and pretty cool. Here in Milan they sell them at Excelsior – a fantastic department store if you haven’t checked it out yet. I got two for pretty much the price of one – gotta love sales.

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

the xx at alcatraz milano

what better way to end a great weekend than with the xx live in milan.

they put on a great show on their coexist tour, at alcatraz club north of the city center. although the venue was a little cold, and not many songs from their previous album were played, they did an amazing job and keeping the buzz going as their dj played each song into the next with some amazing bass transitions, and some feel good dance beats to keep the crowd moving.

definitely worth picking up some tickets in your city. find the upcoming tour dates here.

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.
