What to wear to Milan Fashion Week on a heavy rain? Sequins!

October 10, 2015

We went to Milan right after London Fashion Week, sleepless but excited. The heavy rain didn’t put us down, and to literally brighten up the mood, I picked this beautiful sequin tunic dress from Topshop, just because I love gold sparkly things and Italy inspires such an elegant street catwalk, I had to step up the game. My ultimate favorite trainers this season are the Musette floral ones which caused quite the rave among fashionistas, and I am really proud of this Romanian brand. They were present in Paris for Fashion Week but this is another story.

We shot in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the the world’s oldest shopping malls, dating from 1877, but it is so much more than that. The neoclassical arcade is a soaring iron and glass structure, symbolizing the Italian unity and self-confidence, decorated with lots of patriotic symbols. The mosaics on the floor are impressive, proof of a well established lifestyle. They were also Instagram-perfect!
