Montenapoleone Accessory Tour

Beginning of September is all about bags and shoes, as if that’s something all girls don’t dream about, you too? We have something in common. After spending the weekend at MICAM, I get an invite to 3 locations in Via Montenapoleone, again who could resist?

NO words PR put together a fun and informative “NO WORDS ACCESSORY TOUR SS17” presenting new inventive and creative ways to match food and fashion.
My first stop was Montenapoleone 19 at “Ristorante Doriani” offering an aperitivo buffet with yummy little treats. After a glass of prosecco we toured the Piccadilly Brazilian brand embodying waste-free, sustainable, eco-friendly comfort.

The collection has 4 categories, we begin with 70’s a retro aspect but not vintage looking (maybe my favorite look). Next was the ethnic look, typically Brazilian with colorful fabrics and natural fibers Third is the “Inventive vibration” in other words minimal. Last of all we come across the “Revisited Tradition” where their storic collection joins youth.

Off to MN 13 where we are spoiled by “Bàcaro di Sambuco’s” Italian delicacies and introduced to the newest in Japanese technology, a sort of paper shoe but not really. Using Abaca Fibers, Toru Itoi, invented Magical Washi canvas.

If this innovative material gets wet, it dries within seconds which keeps your feet dry at all times, weather it be perspiration in Summer or humidity in Winter. So once again Italian Tradition joins Tecnology, Arrezzo based shoe maker “Calzaturificio Fratelli Soldini” launces “Kifu’s” first collection.

Last stop on our tour is Studiofinorossi, Montenapoleone 1, where our beautiful purple haired Veronika explains the intricate handcrafts by Laboratorio Toscano using exotic natural hides for their luxury line and traditional soft nappas for the younger designs.
Definitely something different and new!
