After two wonderful days I’m back from Milan. It was a business trip, but that doesn’t make it less pleasure. So why? Gucci invited to the launch of their new campaign of the Gucci Guilty scent, featuring Jared Leto. So how do you dress for that? Find everything pleated, something with a bow, a lot of colours and anything Gucci… The shoes I got down, but with no Gucci bag, what do you do? Borrow from your boss (aka the world’s coolest, our editor-in-chief Cecilie) – and buy yourself one on the trip!
Here are the highlights …
I started the first morning with a run in the streets of Milan. I always want to pack my workout gear for trips like these, but honestly I never get to use it when my days are long, and I have to get up early. But this time was different, and it’s for sure the best way to see a city!
Summer in Milan! The weather was amazing, and this beautiful pleat skirt was perfect for the heat.

After attending the men’s fashion show, we went to a press lunch at a very nice place called Aromondo Bistrot. More about that later …
Back at the hotel, a goodiebag with the Gucci Guilty scents and some Gucci makeup was waiting for me. Really excited to try it, especially the makeup which is not available in Denmark.
No visit to Milan without a gelato. My favourite? Nocciola! This one is from this place.
In the evening creative director Alessandro Michele and Jared Leto hosted a dinner at an amazing art studio. Everything was so beautiful, the music great, the Italian (Gucci dressed) waitors kept the snacks and drinks coming, the guests looked chic … We weren’t allowed to take photos of the campaign, but it’s worth the wait. And Jared was really nice!

The next day, we got up bright and early, to go to the Museo Mudec. It’s a fairly new one (only about one year old), and where Alessandro gets a lot of his inspiration. Again, no pictures allowed (this is the view from my hotel), but it’s a nice place!
Afterwards the schedule said shopping at the Gucci flagship (I’m not kidding, it did!). Let’s just say I didn’t leave empty handed, but what I got, you’ll have to see later …
Cappuccino break at a classic: Salumaio de Montenapoleone. The Italians make damn good coffee.
A stroll around the beautiful Vittorio Emmanuelle before going home.
Thank you for an amazing time, Milan!
