  • Milano Unica, the luxury textile and accessories fair based in Milan, sponsored by the Ministry of Economic Development in partnership with the Italian Trade Commission of Exhibitors (ICE), made its debut in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Center from July 20th to July 22nd.
  • Fashion designer and visionary Elio Fiorucci was found dead in his Milan home on Monday. He was 80 years old. Famous for their stretch jeans, his brand’s eccentric, funky and sometimes promiscuous image encapsulated the youthful enthusiasm which characterized the disco era during which the Fiorucci cherubs were such a powerful fashion force.
  • For a comfortable, romantic, softly lit, playful and wry spring. The watchword is vintage. Italian stylists have come to us bearing gifts inspired by the world of dance and the splendors of childhood. Our recommendations for intimate apparel, on the other hand, lean toward the sexy and (obviously) vintage. For your own personal downtime, only trust designs wedded to fashion. As for your wrist, go romantic—without a shadow of a doubt. And for you first jog across the grass left behind by the snow? Below you’ll find some decidedly different shoes….

    Mila Tenaglia(April 09, 2015)
    A new urban wear and home décor brand attracting high-caliber artists like Asia Argento and Alessandro Cattelan, Coreterno’s innovative line of “Dis.order” t-shirts, “Home Décor” candles and household accessories emerged from the minds of Michelangelo Brancato and Francilla Ronchi. Provocative style for a timeless brand.
  • 8.5 million people have already bought their tickets for the Expo Milano 2015 collaboration with big name Italian fashion designers, the theme of which is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. Giorgio Armani is scheduled to open the Expo as special ambassador on April 30th with his Privé Haute Couture line fashion show.
  • In the current exhibition “Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968,” MAXXI demonstrates that the cross-fertilization of fashion with the idioms of high art and cinema can produce wearable objects worthy of being enshrined in museums long after they are no longer strictly “in fashion.”
  • The Peroni Nastro Azzurro Celebrates "The Visionary World of Vogue Italia" exhibition in New York was open to the public, offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes view of world renowned photographers, artists, actors, models, designers, musicians and architects.
  • Italian language and Italian culture make an inseparable pair. Ilaria Costa, executive director of the Italian American Committee on Education (IACE), speaks about this and recounts how difficult it is, in the Tristate area, to promote everything Italian through the language. It’s surprising – but not surprising to us at i-Italy – that many Americans, who do not have a familial relationship with our country, are interested in studying our language. The charm of our culture penetrates America, regardless of the blood ties of its inhabitants.
