Visitors to Milan (especially the fashionista set) are in for a treat. Maison Moschino
officially opened in March and it's full of eye candy. Billed as "a world where fashion is king, fairytales come true and dreams are realized," the new 65-room hotel was realized by Stefano Ugolini of Hotelphilosophy, designer Rossella Jardini, and the Moschino creative team. The surreal interiors conjure a dream state, inviting guests "to immerse themselves in a world of imagination and fantasy." Housed in a neoclassical 19th century railway station in the heart of the city, the hotel offers a wonderland of individually designed rooms following imaginative themes like "Little Red Riding Hood," "Clouds," "Luxurious Attic," "The Forest," and "Sleeping in a Ballgown." Your first glimpse inside is of the famous Moschino staple lampshade dress-- now a lamp illuminating the main lobby where origami clouds dangle from the ceiling. The bar and Clandestino Milano restaurant are likewise creatively decorated, channeling Moschino's iconic designs (think dresses and stilettos). Get this: After you've dived into a feast (sushi, meat, vegetarian or vegan dishes), you'll be treated to a palate cleanser: a sake and mint based "mouth wash." Breakfast? No less inventive. The "Mos kit" is served in a container that looks like an elegant shoe box.
