ever since moving to geneva, we’ve been planning trips to nearby countries and cities. milan is high on our wish list, since we haven’t been there before – and i think the opening of excelsior just added a sense of urgency to that wish. a concept store built to the image of barney’s in nyc, it sure seems like a place where i’d like to while away a couple of hours. and as always, it’s the combination of fashion and design with great food that does it for me. think: architecture by jean nouvel, your favorite american brands (rag&bone, theory, vince), home design by skitsch, a laduree boutique and upscale foodie mecca eat’s.
