Milan Design Week 2018: Life in Vogue


Vogue Italia Magazine has opened it’s doors to the public during Milan Designweek 2018; for the occassion of introducing the newest issue of Casa Vogue. Emanuele Farneti, editor-in-chief, invited 8 designers and architects to re-design or re-think if you will, the offices of the editorial staff rooms at VogueIT. The #LifeInVogue project is “A reflection on the way of living [in} the contemporary office”

Images: The office of the editor-in-chief by Faye Toogood (Roly-Poly furniture). The current affairs office by Patricia Urquiola. The corridor by Marco Bellini. And the copy machine.


Since the official tourguide didn’t speak English, Mimi got te private tour by a very kind man. We had in-depth conversations about the designs and the magazine. Not so much; the tourguide was actually from security. Quote; “this is also an interesting lamp” and you’ll hear lot’s of WOW and REALLY from Mimi. But our confidence level is high enough; we will share the short clips with you. Have fun watching them!

More video’s made at the Vogue Italia office’s during the tour can be found on Mimi Berlin’s YouTube Channel

Life in Vogue at the Condé-Nast offices in Milan can be visited from 12:00 to 8:00 PM until the 20th of April, 2018.

Caravaggio in Fashionland

Caravaggio in Fashionland

We finally got hold of the September issue of Vogue Italia yesterday (5/10/2017). Vogue Italia is our favorite out of all Vogue’s, and we weren’t dissapointed with last month’s “Roma” issue either.

We, at Mimi Berlin, think the most stun-ning series in this issue is the Ad Arte! edititorial, in which photographer Willy Vanderperre paraphrases paintings by Caravaggio (with styliing done by Olivier Rizzo) The photo above is made after ‘Deposition from the cross’ painted by Caravaggio around 1600. That’s want we wanted to share with yous all today! Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi Continue reading
