My February Milano visit was not only about shows & showrooms, but also about the encounter of some amazing brands during my Pitti Super adventures.
An Italian Theory is probably one of my favorite discoveries as it’s all about knitwear with a touch of retro vibes and lovely structured bags and clutches printed with lucky charms in the most radiant colors. This amazing collection is pretty based on the love for Italian craftsmanship and tradition and that also results in the prettiest espadrilles, helmets and other small leather goods. Dutch web influencer and total sweetheart Linda Tol has often been spotted wearing the lovely colorful creations of An Italian Theory and I could just not resist to buy the prettiest of clutches ever, currently one of my favorite pieces as it pretty much matches every outfit I decide to wear. Designers behind the brand are Italian stylist and Central Saint Martins student Alessandro Enriquez and Azzurra Gronchi who grew up in one of Italy’s most prominent tannery families. A lovely oath to Italian taste and totally one of my favorite current brands!

Young designer Yasya Minochkina also had me fashion hypnotized with her clean-cut minimalistic silhouettes elaborated in a series of great new materials such as neoprene. This young womenwear designer from Ukraine likes to add a sporty touch to her designs but everything remains ultra feminine.

On the accessory side I bumped into Benedetta Bruzziches who designs the most adorable and inventive bags I’ve ever seen, they’re all a bit quirky and extremely fun to wear. Totally my cup of tea as these beauties are totally unique.

And given the fact that I am a melting pot of different cultures and just a total sucker for all things ethnical prints I totally fell in love with Ituen Mazi skirt elaborated in the most amazing and mind-boggling African wax. Hope to hear more from this lovely Nigerian designer very soon.
I also fell totally in love with the fur creations of Freya Dalsjö who studied at the Academy of Antwerp and moved back to Copenhagen to present her debut collection. She not only knows how to master fur and create the most amazing warm beauties, but she also creates some of the raddest coats I’ve ever seen.
