This is the story of Maria´s final choice for a classic black high heel by Pollini. Milano is great be-cause all the top brands have stores there and are quite close together. Equipped with a pair of Red Wings Pecos, easy to go back and forth to pick the final one – finally. What a great combination Red Wing + Pollini.

Combining traveling with friends, meeting friends in Milano and having the Salone furniture fair with all its exhibitions and events around is a sure bet for a great weekend. Weather was fine as well, snow on the San Bernardino but as more we approached Milano it got warmer and warmer.  We were welcomed with some great wines and homemade pasta & vongole and the evening went quite into the morning. Next day we headed to the Lambrate area where you mostly see young designers and students showing their work to the world. A great vibe with amazing architecture and a great mix of exhibited objects. The Sea Chair Project and the works of Sander Mulder were the most memorable to me. Later that day we went to the Brera district for some shopping and due to the fact that you just have to look out for the read flags you can find art as much as you have capacity there as well. Milano is very special and you can find too much interesting stuff everywhere so I just posted some random images of the whole trip. Just one great last advice – save some money for the shopping in one of the Italian supermarkets before heading home – hmm awesome stuff as well. Hard to believe that just 3,5 hours southwards the food, fruits and vegetables are such at a different level …

Faema E61:
A small coffee shop in Milano, a quite unique place. Time stood still at this place. The barista, his Faema E61,the guest, the roaster…  He is using the Faema E61 since more than 40 years and hopefully some decades more. (a small explanation the Faema E61 is the “prototype” or the grandfather of all espresso machines, technically and in style).
