Milano: Wait and See concept store

Milano: Wait and See – concept store. Uberta Zambeletti’s new concept store, Wait and See opened during Milan Fashion Week and is housed in an 18th century former convent re-interpreted with the warmth of a home in Milan’s historical city centre. Wait and See’s uniqueness is a reflection of Uberta’s varied cultural influences and her recognized passion for research and practical demeanor.  Her belief that luxury is not only to be defined by price is reflected in the store’s international and transversal, yet affordable offering, with no single item exceeding 1.000 Euros and a price point that starts at just 1 Euro.

Wait and See principally carries women wear, with a refined assortment of clothing, accessories, bijoux, objects, stationary, books and vintage pieces, sourced exclusively from Peru to France, from Finland to California.   A selection of items for men and children will also be available.

Wait and See – Matteo Thiela.  A cupboard holding the collection Retexo, a project by Matteo Thiela based on the simple concept: disarrange textiles and create clothes made out of pure thread, beyond warp and weft.  Retexo in Latin means undoing, deconstructing, warping, destroying textiles.  Thiela put together millions of pure silk threads to achieve the best out of color vibrations.  His dresses are made of thread cut at different lengths and uncovering different volumes and explosions, fireworks and waterfalls of fragile threads.   These dancing clothes fit the body and follow its movements throughout the air.
