A Milan that honours the near past adores, without absolutely no doubt, the Casa Mangini Museum, with its highly intriguing vintage trunks and mementos!
Cavalli e nastri in Brera then becomes a must for a Mary Quant style dress, a vintage Gucci or a pair of optical earrings.
NeoRetrò in Canonica, on the other hand, has what you need to furnish your home with a pleasing and refined modernist taste, leaving the pure fun of an old vinyl, an orange Montgomery coat or a 1960s English monofiore vase to the East Market!
We conclude in atavistic beauty at Casa Base, a moment to relax among vintage furnishings.
Mangini House Museum
The unending search for the beautiful, the compulsion to accumulate and a cultivated, unbridled curiosity all make the collection of Emilio Carlo Mangini, the mad genius of that Milan which we like so much, both inimitable and unforgettable, impossible not to learn how to recognise it. In via dell'Ambrosiana 20. Always best to make an appointment.
Cavalli e nastri
Trifari Trifari and more Trifari: an historic address for vintage costume-jewellery fans, C&N has kept up-to-date over the years and has been able to meet all the varied needs of their increasingly demanding and well-travelled customers by always listening to what they ask for and always giving them what they want.Therefore, in addition to their brooches, they also stock vintage handbags, outfits, shoes with all the magnificent bells and whistles that turn every girl into Holly of Breakfast at Tiffany fame, which we all try to deny but that invariably seems to pop-up in our minds.
Via Canonica is definitely the place to go for genuine vintage items and modern collectables: in fact, at No,6 they have Nineteen-Seventies lamps, very Fluo-style globes, early-Twentieth Century stepping-stools and Roaring-Twenties objects for the avid collector!It’s impossible to leave here without something in your hand!
