Milanese Chic

The definition of being chic is to be stylish and elegant. Many a blogger out there have combined their travel stories with their OOTD. And nowhere have you gotta do this more in the city of Milan. Why?

Simply because it is a fashion capital that not only rivals its peers but also boasts of being a key sartorial hub.

Heheh… new word… Sartorial, NOT satirical. In case you are wondering about this new word yet again, it refers to the art of tailoring. Yeah we do research a little for our posts… For you see, fashion is not just on the drawing board (well computers these days), but also in the actual making of the outfit. While it may appear great on sketch, it might be less so in real life. So the tailor brings a sketch design to life, so to speak. No runway model will ever don a sketch…

Oh man that’s deep. What’s gotten into us recently?

Because we (ie Mel) came here on occasion for business when we lived in Holland, we had the good fortune to combine it with leisure. And it was definitely a city that Suan misses a lot, for she was truly at home in the boutiques that line the shopping streets of the city. Like they were everywhere in the city. It appeared like an infestation! Though Mel would not be too bothered to return since he had a bad experience. Wanna know what it was? Why not read all about that here?

Have you been to Milan? What did you like about the capital of fashion? Are you a fashionista?

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. I actually found Milan friendlier than Rome and if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m Catholic and I missed the Sistine Chapel last time, I would rather return to Milan than Rome. It’s subjective for me, though. I will definitely go back and stay longer.
