Colleen's Milan Travel Diary

This week, we asked Colleen, our Director of Product Development & Production, to share her Milan photo diary with us. She's just back from a whirlwind trip with Clare and here she shares her favorite Italian moments.   Last month Clare and I made our 2nd trip together to the Lineapelle leather show in Milan, this time sourcing for our upcoming Spring '17 collection. I started attending this show 5 years ago when it was based in the Italian town of Bologna, and although I miss experiencing the Bolognese small-town charm and incredible food, I've come to adore the Milanese ways. Here are some of my favorite things to squeeze in between long days exploring beautiful new materials! - Colleen milan Sunday afternoon arrived at The Yard Hotel, strolled along the river in Porto Ticinese neighborhood. milan2 Beautiful imagery in the streets of Porto Ticinese. milan3 Duomo at night. milan4 Gelato, gelato, gelato - pistachio + salted chocolate is a winning combo. milan5 Waking up the ladies (Suki + Le Grand Depart Flat Clutch) for a big day around town. milan6 Portrait of Double Sac Bretelle reclining at Fondazione Prada's Bar Luce. milan7 Cute/ delicious views at Fondazione Prada's Bar Luce. milan8 Blush Mick blending into the pastel candy interior of Fondazione Prada's Bar Luce. milan9 Blush Mick gets her groove on at Fondazione Prada's Bar Luce. milan10 Breadstick ladder to the night sky (artist/ title unknown) at Fondazione Prada. milan11 The Giacometti Variations by John Baldessari at Fondazione Prada. milan12 The Giacometti Variations by John Baldessari at Fondazione Prada. milan13 CV checking out The Giacometti Variations by John Baldessari at Fondazione Prada. milan14 We know how to aperitivo, Grand Hotel Et De Milan. milan15 CV magnifying some very small text (I forget what!), Grand Hotel Et De Milan. milan16 Gazing longingly at the beautiful mint green interior (and aperitivo on display) at Tambon di San Marco - bookmarked for our next trip! milan17 La Bandiera Italiana flying high. milan18 CV chose a cerulean blue nail polish from this street vending machine. milan19-2 Bright, happy lemons at the local market. milan20-2 Crisp, green pears with little red wax caps at the local market. milan21-2 Cute signage at the roasted chestnut street vendor. milan22 Duomo by day. milan23 Beautiful book shop views, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan24 Beautiful book shop views, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan25 Beautiful book shop views, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan26 Look up, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan27 Look down, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan28 My favorite way to wind down after a long day at the leather show - a Negroni and aperitivo at Campari Bar, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II. milan29 Tiny chocolate-covered ice cream bar, a perfect ending to a perfect meal at Bebel's.
