Impressions from Milan Design Week 2010

Posted in art, design by welcomebemymuse on April 21, 2010

From April 13 to 19, Milan went crazy once again for the Design Week. Not even during fashion weeks, there is so much going on as in these few days, with each showroom or shop of “Fuori Salone” having soirees, aperitivi and parties with Roisin Murphy or The Prodigy djing… Even punk occupied squats in the area of Navigli had an “open house” where they sold homegrown vegetables, self-made wine or just pot (!).
A special highlight? North Italy based furniture design company Lago opened its showroom “Appartemento Lago” in the artsy Brera-area where the guys of Nu Bureau started never-ending life cooking sessions for visitors. With this performance and the open invitation to the guests to join them cooking (and of course eating), Lago created the coolest spot to hang out during this busy week!

maison dubosk – brand to watch!

Posted in fashion by welcomebemymuse on April 8, 2010

Milan based designer Stefania Loschi whose roots are Brazilian and Italian introduced her second collection of shirts with hand illustrated prints. After her first collection “woman and animals” or “me and men”, she launches her second line named “Monsieur Gris” showing illustrated foxes, horses and Yves Saint Laurent.

Maison Dubosk was launched in 2008 and is inspired by the colorimeter invented by the French pioneer photographer Jules Dubosq. Every piece of the collection is made in Italy, “from the textile to the stamps and prints” designer Stefania says. Not only this fact is a reason to fall in love with Maison Dubosk!
