Everyone knows that Milan is synonymous with fashion. But what few realize is that beyond the catwalk, the streets are filled with some of the world's most creative and skilled artisans, many of whom were classically trained in their field at some of the world's most prestigious universities before returning to Italy to continue mastering their craft. Every item we select and shop we feature will truly be one-of-a-kind finds, and each is sure to be imbued with the magic of Milan.
Oh, Florence. It's more than a city -- it's an experience like none other. Aside from the city's infatuating allure, Florence is home to some of the world's most gifted artisans, many of whom are multi-generational practitioners who have been perfecting their craft their entire adult lives, just as their parents and grandparents and great-grandparents (and so on) did before them. The quality, artistry, and craftsmanship produced by these fine artisans is the product of hundreds of years of fine-tuning.
