Milano Unica changes because the fashion system has radically changed
Creating a fair that breathes in synch with the urban environment means generating a series of flows, triggering a virtuous network of influences, offering a wider audience the opportunity to approach luxury in its truest form. But it also means, for the operators, looking at reality and let themselves be inspired by it. Fashion is not locked in an ivory tower: it makes sense when it looks at reality to rewrite it and imagine a new one.

The most elegant man in the world
