Buttero x Por Vocação Window Display
Located at Corso Garibaldi in one of Milan’s most hyped districts, Buttero’s “flagship” store is a mandatory stop for everyone visiting the Italian fashion capital.

Definitely one to keep under the radar.
Ph: Beyond Fabric @ Pitti Uomo
With an outstanding duo comprised by bespoke tailor T-Michael and creative director Alexander Helle at its core, Norwegian Rain is another one to keep under the radar.
