The secret side of Radical Fashion: Orlando Milan
Now at its fifth generation, Milan family business started in 1896 as a textile trading company. Today it is a boutique and also in the furnishings we can recognize the philosophy that is behind all their choices. Competence and creativity are the peculiarities that characterize their offer.
Orlando Milan took part in the success of the Made in Italy with the most authoritative stylists / designers of the ’70s and’ 80s; he worked together, starting in the mid-80s, with the newest and most creative industry players, like Rey Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Junya Watanabe (defined as the protagonists of Radical Fashion by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London).
The boutique in the center of Padua stands out for its wide range of alternative clothing that valorise the people who wear them. Orlando Milan selects the most original designers for their uniqueness and alternative clothing against the mass production.
Thanks to their long family experience they have a catalog of high quality original products and each garment has a strong artistic value.
The connection with Micromega, handmade Venetian designer glasses, takes place through the enigmatic designer Rick Owens, who now co-produces Micromega mask-glasses that have just been shown at Paris Fashion Week.
