Starting tomorrow design aficionados will be arriving in our beautiful city of Milan for the coveted Design Week, or Salone del mobile how they call it here in Italy. Last week for our Splurge Friday we featured Zaha Hadid’s Design Candle to kick off the anticipation for this coming week. This week we are highlighting the Zeppelin Light by Marcel Wanders.
Belmodo Diary: Favorite Museums By Tamu McPherson
One of the things that sold me on Milan and Italy in general is the Italian love and authority on art and design. I’ve met very few Italians who haven’t been able to speak freely about these creative subjects. Their enthusiasm for all things creative is absolutely admirable.
So you can expect that the Milanese museums and galleries are well frequented, with queues robustly snaking city blocks. Three favorite spaces where I often line up to view new exhibits include: PAC, Museo Del Novecento and the Prada Foundation.
Fashion Film Festival Milano By Tamu Mcpherson
Hi Guys, if you’re in Milano today and tomorrow, please stop by Fashion Film Festival Milano at the Anteo Spazio Cinema to discover noteworthy fashion films by emerging filmmakers and established fashion houses from across the globe.
Founded by Constanza Cavalli Etro, FFFM represents a “cross-cultural meeting point” where fashion films are showcased “as a testament to their authors’ personality and talent – whether new or established.”
Since its launch last year, the festival has experienced great success and has already grown to call Paramount International a collaborator, and highly respected Nowness magazine a media partner. Paramount will assist in broadening the festival’s reach by broadcasting the films on the Paramount Channel. Nowness’ contribution entails a Nowness room featuring screenings from the platform’s impressive archives as well as a panel discussion moderated by its editor Claudia Donaldson.
From its creation, FFFM experienced impressive enthusiasm from industry insiders including Vogue Italia’s E-I-C Franca Sozzani who serves as a judge along side Dazed & Confused Founder Rankin, international director and photographer Bruno Aveillan, Vogue Talents championer Sara Maino, film maker Lisa Immordino Vreeland and curator Mario Codognato for Edition #2.
