Milano: Larusmiani - concept boutique

Larusmiani – concept boutique.   The new Larusmiani concept boutique on Via Montenapoleone, located in the completely renovated historic store opened in 1954, is the ideal shop-window where an exclusive series of rooms house the brand’s men’s and women’s creations in an atmosphere of refined elegance.  The boutique was designed by internationally renowned British architect, David Collins.  And, from an encounter between Liborio Capizzi, Gianfranco Ferre’s right-hand man for sixteen years, and Guglielmo Miani, representative of the third generation Larusmiani company and creative mind behind the brand’s relaunch comes the first women’s collection.  The women’s collection draws on the brand’s men’s tailoring sartorial tradition to offer sophisticated, exclusive elegance, for a style that is not fashion led but enhances femininity through the reworking of unusual masculine details.

Vita, painting, especially for the boutique, which represents the union between a man and a woman.  Natasha was jet setting over to London for the opening of her show in London’s B.Hive Gallery.
