Window Shopping with Mimi Berlin in Milan during Designweek 2019

Window Shopping Fashionfix

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.

Pink

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

Meanwhile at the Optician

Optician

Once in a while your eyesight needs to be checked. Visits to the optician become even more necessary when you grow older. It seems like the eyes grow tired of looking at things up-close, and they refuse to focus. We know that age-related eye changes are normal, so we don’t mind visititing the local eyeware store. Au contraire, everytime we visit it’s rather fun. Proof of that below, a portrait of Mimi Berlin by Mimi Berlin, both behind the ‘lenses’.

That’s all we wanted to share with y’all today. Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi Berlin
