Triumphant Milan. “This book is not only an itinerary through some of the most beautiful entryways of Milan’s buildings, but also an emotional journey where the sense of chic lies in the balance between color and minimalist splendor”. This is the beginning of the book Entryways of Milan (Taschen), edited by the german art director Karl Kolbitz, with a writing of the fashion designer Stefano Pilati, that in his collections for Yves Saint Laurent and Zegna has always proved that he knows how to conciliate with balance colors and shapes. The entryways photographed, no less than 144, have been built from the 30s to the end of the 60s in areas that until 20 years ago where considered adjacent to the historical centre but not central. Now that Milan is one of the most interesting cities in Europe again, the suburbs are an integral part of a metropolis that lives of tourism, thanks also to art and design. Talking of fashion: today brands look for a futuristic placement, releasing from past references, apart from some intrusions in the 70s and 80s. And the 30s.



Camicia, DSquared2, s/s 2018.

Uno dei trend ufficiali e più evidenti della s/s 2018 è il revival della camicia hawaiana. Divenuto un must dagli anni 50 in poi negli States, anche grazie a Elvis, questo capo di abbigliamento è un inno alla spensieratezza e alla comodità, di cui molti tra i più grandi brand di prêt-à-porter hanno dato la propria interpretazione per questa stagione. Così DSquared2 parte dalla classica Aloha Shirt, a manica corta, con colletto aperto e taschino sul petto, che viene abbinata però a capi in pelle nera, fibbie, dettagli western e tocchi goth. Un accostamento sorprendente che dona accenti grintosi e un po’ cupi a un mondo che sicuramente cupo non è.  A cura di Angelica Pianarosa, Foto Michele Gastl. 

One of the “official” and most evident trends of ss18 is the revival of the hawaiian shirt. Become a must from the 50s on in the States, thanks to Elvis also, this garment is a tribute to carefreeness and comfort, and many among the greatest brands of prêt-à-porter gave their interpretation of it for this season. So DSquared2 starts from the classic Aloha Shirt, short sleeved, with open collar and breast pocket, matching it with black leather garments, buckles, western details and goth touches. A surprising combination that gives bold and a little dark accents to a world that is not dark at all. Edited by Angelica Pianarosa, Ph. Michele Gastl.
