milan: february store opening

a remarkable little shop kicked off last month in milan. it's called february and is in fact not just a store but also is a studio and art space. it provides a home to an eponymous fashion brand that's more than a retail space. designers lucio vanotti and marika masi simply wanted an environment in which their contemporary men's and women's collections could freely interact with other artistic disciplines. the first art installation at february is 1+2+3+4 by giovanni de francesco, who'll also be the venue's artistic director, and is inspired by the mystical symbol of tetractys. location: via arena 19 [porta ticinese]. © february / photography: mara corsino
