When I moved to London in January 2000, the internet connection was still slow and expensive. At that time, going to London or New York was an incredibly creative experience, these cities are a breeding ground for new ideas and trends, born on the streets, adapted by the mainstream market and then exported to the rest of world. It is not the same anymore, globalization has made us more similar, you can see in real-time what people wear everywhere, all the news proposed in the fairs, innovative products, remote places. This brings to our life enrichment but also stress. We are so bombarded by images that it is difficult to not want more or feel that our life or our look or the look of our life is inadequate, not up-to-date. That is why it is very important to surround yourself with beautiful things and people, that never go out of style.
This is the case of Margherita Missoni’s house in Milan. Two years ago her flat, when I first posted some photographs of it, was new and original, now this vintage, mismatched look is easily found, with varying results. Still the apartment keeps its fascination intact because it is full of beautiful objects, the Missoni textiles being the first.
