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. In a recent collaboration with former menswear store turned creative marketing agency Por Vocação, the space now presents a unique window display resorting to vintage faceted backlit glass pieces, evoking the traditional craftsmanship of Murano glass.
Bringing together two very special brands, Por Vocação (my former employer) whose creative director is not only a good friend but a mentor as well and Buttero with whom I have been developing a growing relation based on our mutual love for footwear, this project definitely has a special meaning for me.

Thank you all for the continuous support during the whole process and hope you enjoy it!
Online Store - Coming Soon
I’m proud to announce that Beyond Fabric will soon feature its very own online store. After years of delivering quality content with a unique vision and emphasis on personal style, I felt the time had come to take the project to a new level. The store will carry on the blog’s legacy, introducing Beyond Fabric’s private label and collaborations, as well as upcoming portuguese designers and brands.
For me, it’s not only a way to materialize ideas into great garments and accessories, but also the culmination of a long-lasting dream. As usual you can expect an eclectic mix of styles, ranging from statement pieces up to everyday essentials and unique accessories.
Store Info: Stefano Ricci, Firenze
While all the attentions are focused on Pitti and rightfully so, there’s much more to Firenze than its biannual fair. Locals are gifted with some of the world’s most renowned brands and personalities and on top of that each store seems to elevate the standard to a whole new level. This was just the case over at Stefano Ricci…
I’ve visited my share of places and stores, but I must say few have had the same effect on me: the moment I stepped in, garments became but a portion of the unique universe created within, as I found myself absorbing all the surrounding details in pure awe. From an 8m-high ceiling with a glass dome, to fresco paintings on the walls, mohogany displays and leather sofas, this space exudes the very essence of luxury. Add to that the brand’s logo brought to life in every eagle-shaped mannequin and a massive eagle statue at the center and it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by the whole environment, like it or not.
Once your jaw gets back in place, you start gazing at the outstanding leather suitcases and accessories, sharp suits, colorful ties and exquisite shoes, all of which are carefully shown to you by a super friendly staff (enough to say they let me shoot inside the store). I could go on and on describing every little detail, but I’ll let the pictures do that for me instead and simply say: don’t miss it next time you’re in Firenze.
