LOCATION: Milan, near Montenapoleone
THEME: チェックメート・ミラノ~Checkmate Milan~

 

ミラノにいた時。ホテル周辺がモンテナポレオネという、高級ブランドが所狭しとならぶ有名な街だったので、合間を縫ってピーポーウォッチングに。一つ問題が。どうしても「ミラノ系」コーデが組めない。東京系かニューヨーク系が心に詰まりすぎているせいか、Kittimaというミラノ発ブランドのスカートを身につけたものの、スポーティさが目立つ。ま、ま、イタリア系ファッションといえば「カラー」が思い浮かぶし、もっともミラノのファッショニスタに欠かせない「ピンヒール」でチャレンジしてたので、なんとかなったと思う。しかも、元気な色が歴史的な街並みにうまく遊び合っていると思う。別に当てはまらなくても、いいよね。

It’s another atehamaranai-kei (translation: “odd-one-out-style”) stylebook.

While in Milan I had a hot minute to check out the area near the hotel, located near the famed Montenapoleone street lined with the world’s top boutiques. But anyone who has been to Italy knows the sidewalks are narrow, and causing any sort of extra congestion might get you a face full of scowls (or wide gestures of dis-contempt). So these photos were taken in the backstreets, where my bright checkered Kittima skirt juxtaposed with the historic stone walls every so politely.  I really thought that since I was in an Italian brand, I could put together a very Milanese outfit. But it seems I just can’t wash the Tokyo and New York sporty style out of my hair. But these stilettos at least, couldn’t look more at home, in the cobblestone streets where women hobble like masters of the game. Check, mate.
