Welcome to MILANO411.
All are welcome.
Our city, our worldview, our style, our loves, and passions for life are yours for the taking. MILANO411 is the English-speaking voice and guide to all things Italian and designer. Not your father’s traditional Italophile online magazine. Rather we’re the 21st resource or guidebook, for those who don’t want to sacrifice style and design. The lifestyle App that brings it all together for those who like Italian style and want to know more. For those who know life is more than just going to work or looking at your phone all day.
It’s about a place where art meets function. A place that expands consciousness and does it in a stylish fashion. A place that “keeps it real,” but does it with class and educates too. A virtual Milan, floating into your world and giving you The 411 on everything that’s important to you. A mag, Vlog, blog, or whatever that is made for both men and women.
Kris Milano, editor
Where macho meets fashion, and doesn’t worry about the BROs and their stupid opinions; nor need for the outdated metrosexual label. A place where the only label worn by our readers, is Italian and closets are only for clothes, a quiet place to dream, and of course to stache your smokes (pot) and other things that are done on the down low. Or a place to share your loves and lives and passions. You are more than the normal social media celebrity wannabe. You are a human that might be ultrafashionable, yet there’s more to you and what you’re trying to say to the world, past everyone else’s 15 minutes of BS. You consider yourself an artisan of life, like the Great Artists of the Italian Renaicance, Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Raphael; even old man Titian and crazy out of his mind Carravigio.
MILANO411 is a place for the ladies as well. But we’re accessorized with the social DNA of Ms. Oprah Winfrey. Empowereing women to make choices beyond what goes down a designer runway. Knowing that there’s more to the world then makeup and figuring out ways to get a man or keep the one you have. We feel the most beautiful part of a woman’s body is her mind. So with that said, if you are a female blogger that fuses both the beauty and the brain into one seamless fabric of life; please e-mail us about writing for us. We want to be a fashion magazine that gives you the tricks to enhance your feminine wilds, yet doesn’t forget that it’s hard to be a SEXY woman and a lot of DAMN work too. An online magazine that reflects that you have a mind and want some glamour in your life; without always kicking out big coins from your purse for those designer labels. One that knows women come on all economic levels. Rich girls who can afford designer bobbles and ladies just starting out that got the flash, but sometimes low on the cash. Other priorities like career and health are on your mind, versus what hot today and not hot tomorrow. You know who you are and you are welcome to walk on the streets of Milan, wherever they are on this chaotic and beautiful planet called Earth.
But we digress, MILANO411 always dares to ask:
What is The 411?
What is hot and Italian; and not sexualy laced dialogue for lost Freudians? What is style and how can I get it without always breaking my bank account? This and many more, will be explored here in the months and years ahead. We are based in Milan and feel the world should know what Great City has to offer and why she’s referred to by the Milanesi, “Milano e un sogno.” Which means, “Milan is a dream.” Our editors feel the Milano Story or look translates to a world in desperate need of dreams and beauty. Beauty that makes no apologies and can be easily incorporated into various lifesftyles and budgets. We wanted the world to discover us and our look. To know that Milan is a dynamic city that in the Post-Expo 2015 world has repositioned herself as the premiere fashion and design capital in the world. God bless and protect Paris, and we have nothing but kisses for NYC Fashion Week; but make no mistake that our focus and love is off the catwalks, store windows, clubs, and showrooms of Milano. We are the international DJ broadcasting, podcasting, mindlinks, all things Milano. We want you to come visit us or feel free to copy what you like into your world. Always, knowing that Milan is more than a city in Northern Italy and one of the Italy’s largest. Milan is a mix of Italian culture, with a more global vision. In our DNA, we love to mix Italian tradition with modernity. MILANO411 believes in the 5 Fs of Italy.
Take these 5 elements, and mix them up into your life and always know we’ll be here month-after-month; week-after-week; bringing you the best from The City of Dreams.
Ciao Tutti…(& Come back for more.)
