From a Venetian, who picked Milan, and now spend half her time in London/elsewhere, but always come back...This is the very best, more accurate description of the city soul i have ever read! That going in circle and that inspiration are just as right for someone staying here 2 days or 300. Your reportage is a tribute!

“It’s good when it’s born from activation, wrong when I expect that it’s going to activate me.” This is a drop mic sentence.

It is very true, from where I “see” you that you embody a very Latin-Mediterranean aesthetics and style work (like from south of Spain to Adriatic shores) more than culture there are genes activating this in you.

For instance in my case I sense something closer to orient or south hemisphere activating me.

More of a pull than of a push when seeking beauty.

There. Now I’ve read it.

Milan = Your comfort zone city

What I got from this was history; from the city, the people, fashion, and your own family's.

Is it too soon for you to go back?

I’ll read this thoroughly yet I’m compelled to hit comment too soon: this passage “Admittedly, overall, I have felt more like I fit in here than anywhere else — from the way that I look (big hair, olive skin), to the clothes that I wear (all the denim and gold). But also, I think, because through my own style, I pursue the rough edges that seem natural, like a given, to the style of the Milanese.”

Would you believe me if I say that I predicted this?!

Loving this reportage 🫶
