Milan: MFW – Maliparmi Fall Winter 2013. The Maliparmi Fall Winter 2013 is called Nomade Remix, it is inspired by the desire for a new nomadic experience driven by the world wide web, a technology that brings the whole planet within our reach, shortening distances and turning space and time into relative concepts.
Maliparmi - Nomade Remix. Malìparmi has taken over a magical space in Milan in Piazza Sant’Eustorgio, overlooking the Romanesque style basilica. The new Spazio Nomade is a location whose ever-changing spirit will create an enduring presence. Annalisa Paresi, president of Malìparmi, says, "I've always been fascinated by Piazza Sant’Eustorgio, because I felt it was a place of the soul, existing as if suspended in time. The space has experienced an especially rich history of new ideas, of fabrics arriving from far-off places, it seemed to be the perfect place to realise an idea that means great deal to me; a multifunctional environment that can host a range of diverse initiatives linked to our product, whilst also fulfilling other roles."

Maliparmi - Fall Winter 2013. The Mailiparmi Nomade Remix collection, “It grew from a wish to travel round the world", says Silvia Bisconti, Malìparmi's artistic director, "And to bring back ideas, objects, incentives to combine in a new, contemporary mash-up that nourishes the memories, emotions and identity of the elements that generated it".

Maliparmi - Nomade Remix – the jewelry
Maliparmi - Nomade Remix. In the Nomade Remix silhouette the mash-up of prints, embroidery and fabrics finds a pleasing equilibrium. Everything is based on the coat with masculine roots, featuring highly feminine prints, embroidery and linings, superimposed and layered over the sweater and top ensemble. The wide skirt, visible at the bottom of the coat, is perfect with the new high-heeled Mary Janes, the large "Metallic interweaving" shopping bag or the ultra-embroidered “Crazy Africa” clutch.

Spazio Nomade Malìparmi. Amid all the frenetic activity of the MFW runaway shows, guests were offered a nomad brunch. And staying on the Nomad theme, the food was served in appropriate containers, like these pretty tins in which a delicious hot Chickpea Soup with Croutons was served, much appreciated on a snowy, grey Milan day.
The cooks - sisters Alessandra and Roberta Calvo who run Soup in Naples devised the nomad menu.
