New Milan hotspots for the fashion crowd – WWD

MILAN — For those who are tired of the “usual” places, there are new openings all over Milan ready to become the new favorite places.

Louis Vuitton

A new Louis Vuitton destination has just opened in the renovated 1930s building known as the former Traversi garage. Developed over three floors, the first and second floors are dedicated to retail, respectively to the women’s and men’s collections, also recognizable by the color palette chosen, pink and yellow for women and Keaton blue for men. The top floor will house special Louis Vuitton projects, including pop-ups and art exhibits.

For the worldwide launch of the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collection, the third floor hosts an immersive installation in the universe of the Japanese artist. Countless “infinity points” cover both the floor and the walls. The collection is available for sale: bags, shoes, perfumes and clothing for men and women. Final touch, three huge pumpkins in bright colors are placed on the terrace of the building, symbol of the dichotomy of the artist representing his alter ego, symbol of a hostile nature, of fears and anxieties and reassuring memory of his childhood, said the house.

Il Marchese Milano

The Roman tradition has arrived in the heart of Milan, in the artistic district of Brera, with Il Marchese. A few steps from the La Scala theatre, the restaurant is the second for Davide Solari and Lorenzo Renzi, after a first in the Italian capital.

The elegant tavern offers Roman staples such as Pasta Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe, Carbonara and Gricia served straight from the pan. The setting is inspired by a much-loved Italian film starring Alberto Sordi called “Il Marchese del Grillo” and offers guests the opportunity to experience all the charm of 19th century nobility. The venue is sophisticated, with its neoclassical style and highly prized Milanese marble. The specialty is the amaro bar with over 600 liquors available.

Quad Bistro

“Do it right” is chef Riccardo Quadri’s mantra. He recently launched his first solo project with the Quadri Bistrot in Via Solferino, which ranges from aperitif to gastronomy. Quadri reinterprets Italian and French cuisine in a contemporary way, and experiments with seasonal vegetables for an asparagus risotto for example, or combines Japanese scallops with curry. The drinks menu is specially prepared by the young bartender, and one of his proposals is the quadri-tini, based on vodka, gin and extra dry vermouth. The lounge, the cocktail bar with its long counter, the lounge and the dining room are the result of a collaboration with local craftsmen.

“Recycle beauty”

The concept of recycling, in this case of old works, becomes an exhibition at the Fondazione Prada. Running until February 27, it focuses on the timely moment when the ancient piece or ruin abandons its original state by acquiring new meaning through reuse. The project is being developed in two of the Foundation’s buildings: the Podium and the Cistern. The first allows visitors to deal directly with the works allowing for a more in-depth examination of the pieces. In the Cistern, on the other hand, the encounter with the objects takes place gradually, promoting different points of view, such as that of the narrow perspective of a room built in an already existing environment. A core of works also highlights how the recycling of a work of art, transformed into decoration, ensured its conservation, such as the marble painting with relief of the life of Achilles (4th century AD).

“Max Ernst” exposure
German poet, sculptor and art theorist Max Ernst is presented at the Palazzo Reale with the first dedicated retrospective exhibition, with 400 works including paintings, sculptures and photographs from museums, foundations and private collections around the world . The exhibition groups the works into four major periods divided into nine themed rooms. Among these, “Eros and Metamorphosis”, which reflects the central role that love, friendship and eroticism had in his poetic choices. Sculpture and the art of goldsmithing, for their part, are highlighted in the “Plaisir de l’œil”, which also shows the role of nature and the landscape in the life of the artist. For a leap into the Renaissance, still at the Palazzo Reale, the painter Hieronymus Bosch is presented to the public in an exhibition called “Bosch to each other Renaissance”.
