DAAD Dantone Cut with a pair of golden scissors featured

The older fashion brands and designers become, the more “classic” their collections are ascribed. Not so with DAAD Dantone, the cutting-edge boutique operated by Giorgio Dantone that has consistently scanned the world for sartorial freshness, standing now at the epicenter of Milan’s innovative fashion set. Whether the threads you are looking for are French, Japanese, Nordic or nascent, your expectations on the limits of style are bound to be stretched, cropped, cut and perfected after a short stroll around their refined interior.

La Rinascente Eight oceans of fashion featured

La Rinascente is the oldest and most elegant Italian department store, with 8 floors of multi-label articles, from underwear to perfumery, make up, beauty, sports and home-collections. Its history, strictly connected to national custom and economy, hides some fascinating details: wonderful advertising posters were conceived by Marcello Dudovich and the shop-windows were set up by the famous designer, Bruno Munari. Giorgio Armani made his first creative steps as a window-dresser here and the early prêt-à-porter items, such as the first American fridges and miniskirts passed through La Rinascente’s corridors.

La Rinascente has a new “design supermarket” in the basement floor, with the most important Italian and international labels, such as Alessi, Cappellini, Danese, Kartell, Established & Sons and Royal Copenhagen. After all this shopping and a new haircut at the fancy Coppola beauty saloon, the best is found on the 7th floor; the gourmand market—oil, salt, tea, caviar, biscuits, wine—and having a Negroni cocktail on the terrace bar with the dizziest view of Milan’s Duomo church spires.

Pizzeria Spontini Simply perfecto featured

Spontini is renowned as one of the best pizzerias in town. Opened in the 1950’s, this pizza joint still follows the same special recipe as the day is began and it really is a winner.
There is only one thing you need to know when you arrive at the bustling yet cosy pizzeria- regular or large slice? What makes Spontini unique, is the fact that they only serve one thing- Margherita pizza. This may seem a tad minimalistic, but once you sink your teeth into the melt in your mouth thick, crispy base topped with tomato, mozzarella, oregano and anchovies, you will see why there is no need for anything else.

They of course offer a range of beverages, and lasagna is also offered at lunchtime, but pizza is Spontini’s specialty. There are three restaurants to choose from: the original in C.so Buenos Aires, another one in V.le Papiniano and the newest in V. Marghera. Spontini’s is a Milano must!
