It was such a pleasure to meet the Spijkers twins again, this time in Milan! I was invited to their showroom in Milan and viewed their diffusion collection- SIS.. Let’s just say that I adored every piece and the nautical/sailing theme will be very fitting for our Australian summer. One of their stunning pieces has been lent to the Maritime Museum in Holland!

Truus on the left and Riet on the right. Riet is responsible for the pattern making and Truus for choosing the fabrication. What a great team! They’re wearing pieces from their previous collections. Can you recognise Riet’s top? You would have seen it here.

Federico (who works for the studio), the Spijkers designers and me working hard =) Federico is so handsome I asked if he used to model, he joked and said ‘No, only for socks.’ in his hunky English accent.

Ah so I’ve got to tell you about my FoxTown purchases! FoxTown is near the  border of Swtizerland and Milan, only 1 hour bus ride away from Milan’s Cairoli station. It is the best outlet I’ve ever been to. It was so good that we ended up going twice! I got these Fendi boots there, last pair, in my size! And the YSL postcard belt (see above). I’m wearing vintage shirt and leather pants (from eBay!) and designer accessories. The sea urchin necklace is by Natalia Brilli, my favourite French leather lady. She has a knack of being able to wrap anything and everything in leather. See this post I made about her.

This is the communal computer I’ve been communicating with Australia on. Look forward to going to Paris to our apartment which has WiFi! Speak soon!

Ciao bella!
