IVO MILAN – Radical Fashion Blog

June, 2024 Monthly archive

After 24 years spent in our historic space in Santa Lucia street, the story of IVO MILAN starts again in Altinate street 149, along the continuation of the same ancient roman street, Annia Popilia, overlooking the magnificent Romanesque Santa Sofia church and alongside the Pesaro Palace (Pizzo today), residence of a young Mozart in 1770, during his visit of Padua. Not only, very close to the baroque San Gaetano church and its very famous museum complex that stands nearby.

Every day the shop completes itself with new details, becoming more and more comfortable and showing slowly its innate beauty thanks to the warm wood of the ground floor ceiling, to the visible irregular stone wall of the hallway, to the second room floor in Creta’ stone and to the medieval volts of the basement.

Returning operative again in the lively atmosphere of residents, filled with young students facing their difficult exams of the faculties of engineering, statistics, physics and mathematics, the technical pole of the University of Padua. While shopping or drinking coffee you are immersed in the typical university routine, where every operator, from the bartender to the baker is part of that world, calling boys and girls by name, knowing the teacher’s fame, participating in the outcome of the exam: passed or failed? Complicit and busy faces, often festive, despite the inevitable exam’s anxiety.

A new life, animated by a passing by of people deeply connected to the historic Altinate hamlet.

With the welcome of the neighborhood, with some little insights of the new shops, we come back with our Mix and Match, worn by Ginevra and Sari. The photographic set still to be set up, the tirelessly rhythm of the fittings still to be done, alongside with the depth of the last few months, led us to show a little bit of ourselves at the debut of the Summer season, still under the effects of the titanic move we’ve just faced.
