Dearest Yellowtracers, Team Yellowtrace is back from Milan Design Week once again. Holy moly – what an amazing trip. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite moments from the #MDW14.

Today I would like to share some of my photos of the things I saw in the Brera Design District. This was definitely my favourite fun-filled day in Milan this year. The weather was just beautiful, we had a fantastic crew of some of my dearest friends, everyone was dressed-up and looking a million bucks (alway a good feeling) and we saw some great stuff. Brera is such a fantastic part of town – located in the historical centre of Milan, it is a densely packed neighborhood with a host of high-end design showrooms, galleries, cafes and some amazing shopping…
