We’ve been getting a lot of requests to highlight some of our favorite shops around the world. We heard you and we begin our series with DAAD-DANTONE in Milan.
DAAD DANTONE is a multibrand boutique for men and women, as well accessories, shoes, jewelry, and fragrances from the likes of Rick Owens, Boris Bidjan Saberi, Deepti, m.a.+, Layer 0, Gareth Pugh, Damir Doma, Undercover, Jan Jan Van Essche, and others.
The shop, founded in the 1960s, showcases women and men’s collections in an refined and minimal monochrome display. Since the beginning, the boutique was based on an intimate lounge, an alternative concept for Milan’s “Quadrilatero” fashion system.
