While Fashion Week goes on here, Bruce Weber will present tonight his

new short-film for Moncler, ‘don’t steal the jacket’.

A mix of musical, thriller and dreams with a special soundtrack

by the American band Radical Something, it is sure to fascinate.

At 10 corso Como we met one of the craftsmen

who came from Florence to show our visitors and customers today

how the legendary Salvatore Ferragamo crafts his unique handmade creations.

10 CorsoComo is hosting a gallery dedicated

to Ferragamo all this month of October.

And I have just come to my desk after Sunday lunch with my mother,

an iron lady 99 years old, a wonderful and spirited woman,

a living treasure.

I wish you could see all the great new talent spotted by Italian Vogue’s

Sara Maino for the annual New Talent show hosted

by Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani at the Palazzo Morando

here in Milano until tomorrow, September 26th.

This is a new generation of talented designers not to be missed.

On Wednesday evening the Giorgio Marconi Foundation opened

four floors in  its historic building on via Tadino 15

with Mr. Marconi¹s personal collection of monumental works that

he has collected for over 50 years.

“I have been collecting out-sized works always

with the idea of hosting a museum”.

This is a real gift to the city of Milano and is wonderful to see.

Giant works by artists from the 1960’s to the 1980’s ­

Giulio Paolini, Mimmo Rotella, Louise Nevelson, Lucio Fontana, Lucio Del Pezzo,

Joe Tilson, Enrico Castellani, Mario Schifano

and others grace this amazing space.

My first thought of this week is really my best wishes to my sister.

On Monday, September 19th in New York, Franca Sozzani was named

the Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations by Fashion 4 Development.

She has worked very hard and I know will bring great excitement

and enthusiasm to the ideas of supporting local design

and manufacture in developing countries.

Franca’s speech is passionate and worth reading at her blog for 9/20 at Vogue.it.
