Dear Shaded readers,
There were a few interesting boutique openings during the recent Milan fashion week. I was impressed by the new Mauro Grifoni headquarters. It is their first in Milan which is the fifth shop for them in Italy and probably their best. The 300 sq. mt. building is divided into 3 floors and was designed by the Italian architects Pasti and Perbellini, in collaboration with the Grifoni style team. The building is located on Via Santo Spirito 17 and was once known as the Residence Santospirito. Their remain traces of the past which merge with the new designs giving a cool nonchalant touch. The furniture is made out of recycled and reassembled pieces, the parquet floor is created out of recycled bamboo. The result is a wonderful mix of luxury and simplicity, elegance and eclectisism.
