Whether you’re looking for an outré nineties number, or the caramel hues of the eighties, DRY has you covered.
Have the ‘80s ever felt quite so fresh as they do when seen through the fuss-free lens of a statement coat? Probably not. If there is any time of year when dressing up ought to go down well, it’s winter season. Surely formal offerings never felt this pronounced before the pandemic, when slideshows of waist-up dressing featured in sheer abundance. However, this season’s superior style formula comes in a plethora of textures. From trenches to crewneck sweaters and knit jumpers, see below Dry’s edit of the best tailored items to bypass your style conundrums. If there was one major surprise on the ‘fall runaways, it was the dominance of volumised clothing. There is, however, one huge caveat: “big volume” no longer refers to a dull streetwear ensemble, but rather a wealth of standout shapes – from structured to gentle. Is there anything more immediately chic than a cotton Valentino coat thrown over, well anything? Or a Ferragamo wool blend jumper? Or a macro-checked Giorgio Armani jacket? Frankly: no. No longer rooted in the past, volume is now a quintessentially modern style for the win. This season, menswear dressing has proven to be one to shy away from the art of conceal and reveal. But the most important message? Have fun with it. You’re welcome.
The love for scents, art and hospitality led the Martone family to found the five-star Hotel Magna Pars, the first Hotel à Parfum distilled from Italian excellence, to live through the senses a unique experience. Its olfactory ingredients: woods, flowers, fruits, aromas and resins and hidden gardens create a magical place immersed in the reserved Via Forcella, a refined parallel to Via Tortona. An elegant glass wall gives a glimpse of a bygone era: post-industrial elements, brick walls, exposed corridors and steel railings. Inside, white predominates, warmed by wood and antique book collections. The minimalist décor is cleverly enhanced by works of fine artists, a prelude to the ever-growing Magna Pars Art Gallery. The Hotel’s Sixty-Eight Suites are an expression of excellence, offering refined hospitality and a warm welcome. Each Suite is inspired by a floral, fruity, woody or resinous olfactory note, in line with the history of perfume. Magna Pars, the Hotel à Parfum overlooks splendid indoor gardens: a green lung full of plants and shrubs where, marked by the changing seasons, one breathes in an atmosphere of light, silence and tranquillity, unique in the Milanese metropolis. Spacious and bright, thanks to large windows overlooking gardens or internal terraces, the sixty-eight suites are elegantly furnished with leather sofas
