[en]There’s a special atmosphere in Milan right now, and it’s not only because spring seems to have arrived!!

It’s Design Week, the Fuorisalone in the city; galleries, boutiques, museums and streets full of people and designers from all over the world and at night, parties and events. I love this week in my beautiful city!

On the first day I went to visit two jewellery boutiques. The first was Mimì in via Gesù, who was hosting some amazing new lighting lines by Aqua Creations. While enjoying these stylish lamps and meeting the designer Albi Serfaty, I also got to try on some cool jewellery in pink and yellow gold with garnets, peridots, topaz stones, pearls and coral.

Then we went to Palazzo Borromeo where Antonini (part of the Borromeo Family) has its boutique. Here I got surprise, a private preview of their new gold jewellery collection in yellow gold called “Aurea”. I absolutely fell in love with everything, the way the gold cuff wraps around, the gold ring and striking earrings.

What do you think? Hope you have a great day![/en]

[it]C’è un’aria diversa nelle strade di Milano. Frizzante come la primavera in arrivo: è la  settimana del Fuorisalone. Gallerie, negozi, strade pieni di designer provenienti da tutto il mondo. Musei illuminati fino a tarda notte, party e mille eventi in città. È una settimana affascinante.

Con Giorgio ho visitato due gioiellerie.

La prima, Mimì in via Gesù, esponeva le nuove meravigliose lampade di Aqua Creations. Ho avuto il piacere di ammirare lo stile creativo del designer Albi Serfaty e di indossare le linee di Mimì: gioielli in oro giallo e rosa con granati, topazi, peridoti, perle e corallo rosa.
Poi sono stata nella storica piazza Borromeo dove ha sede l’azienda Antonini (imparentata con l’illustre famiglia Borromeo). E qui una bella sorpresa per me: l’anteprima della loro nuova collezione “Aurea” in oro giallo. Mi sono totalmente innamorata del loro stile: il bracciale che avvolge il mio polso, la morbida catena e gli orecchini a pendente.
Che ve ne pare? Vi auguro una buona giornata![/it]
