MILANO Pret-a-Porter
What a great way to collect old newspapers! My hostess in Milan, Chiara Brandolini loves baskets. Because, they express the unlimited possibilities in the workmanship of natural materials. They are also objects that have always existed and can be precious and rich like antique Japanese baskets, or they can be simple and full of poetry like the ones used by farmers. They are also useful, decorative and human. Chiara loves the open weave ones best because they express lightness. But, in general it's an instinctive feeling whether she like one more than another one. V.I.P's whose greatest indulgence is to find the time to read are; Emilio Pucci's CEO, Catherine Vautrin - Socialite, Wanda Galtrucco - American Vogue's editor at Large, Andre Leon Talley - ex Italian rock star and now TV Moda's presenter, Jo Squillo and beautiful black model Alek Wek.
