Window shopping in Milan is one of Mimi’s greatest pleasures. This week is all about furniture and industrial design ’cause it’s Milan Design Week #mdw19, but we do need our fashionfix so we took a stroll along the shop windows of the high-end fashion brands in the area around the Via Montenapoleone. Below some pictures we made for y’all, who don’t have the time to go shopping for fashion design.
From Industrial to Discotheque to Safari
From the top of our heads (and thus in a nutshell) we could not help but spot the following ‘trends’. ‘Discotheque’ with neon colors, hologram, shine and glitter in silver, gold and bright colors. ‘Industrial’ with neon lights, concrete, silver detailing and transparency or plastic. On the ‘Safari’ side of the ‘shop-window-spectrum’ in Milan: animals, in particular the giraffe, monkeys and birds. Furthermore we’ve seen some tie-dye, at Prada and Stella McCartney only, and of course the color pink in all kinds of romantic shades.
Shop windows with a very romantic and girlie vibe, in pink: from pastel to shocking. Pink. The larger-than-life easter egg is made by Cova
Hunk models showing (mini) trunks and other accesories, including their bodies at Dolce and Gabanna‘s the Naked Show in Milan. You can read about that show by clicking the link to the standard.co.uk above.
Lace for Men/Hot T-shirts made in Dior-logo-lace
At the Dior show, the history of the French fashion House was dug up from the archives: the monogrammed lace or sheer mesh design, populair in the 1980s and originally used for women’s ‘intimates’ (underwear) was re-used for t-shirts.

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available. It still is tacky now, maybe even more so because we think it’s executed in flock-printed mesh; but in a good way! In our opinion these t-shirts look só hot on men! #thatshot #auchhaben
