Next Stop: Milan Fashion Week

milan

 

Two weeks in and our social media accounts may as well be live-streams from the future— the Spring/Summer ’16 future that is. Off to Milan for MFW, the fashion set are readying themselves for big-ticket shows like Prada, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Missoni, which, while we’re on the subject of the Italian family, has a little something to do with our featured Milanese insider. Now the designer of her own eponymous children’s clothing line— a mélange of irreverent pieces grounded in that idiosyncratic boho Missoni spirit— Margherita Missoni shares her neighborhood standbys for everything from morning tea to seafood and proper aperitivo (when in Rome… err, Milan?). Find her Milan Black Book plus our own day-to-night city guide below.
