FRIENDS IN LOVE

// Happy San Valentine's Day to you and your bff!

A SELECTION BY SILVIA PISANU

Back in 1995 La Pina used to sing:

“Oggi non ce n’è sto con le mie amiche quelle preferite… Non so se mi capite.
Andiamo in giro a piedi per negozi, sconti, saldi, vizi, ho un paio di indirizzi buoni”
(‘’Today Imma stay with my favorite friends… you get me. We room around, shops, sales, vices, got a couple of good dresses with me’’).

If San Valentine is the lovers’ day and we know that they come and go, what about friends?
That is real eternal and emphatic love, built on hours of phone conversations to get it all out, exhausting shopping afternoons and understanding everything just with That look.
Endless, immutable, purifying.
‘’What are you wearing tonight?’’
No complains are allowed, just support.

Learning to love each other supporting your girlfriends is our personal dedication for everyone’s Valentine’s day, a kind of love that starts in school and ends checking each other wrinkles and body marks.

Five cult places to treat yourself and your beloved girl in that state of grace called “girl power”.

All made in Milano, of course.
