A short moment before the streets of Navigli will be packed just as much with foreign visitors as with locals is a perfect time to treat yourself to an idle walk in the neighbourhood. Even if you didn’t plan a shopping trip there is something that doesn’t go unnoticed. The charming window with its casual beauty allures the passer-by.
Like walking into a flower garden this women’s fashion boutique baths in light and blossoms in spring colours making you want to cherish with time everything that it hides inside. Retro chairs, fresh flowers in design vases, a beautiful mixture of lighting and all pretty small objects apparent casually laying around on the wooden small tables make you feel at home while you are drawn to discover one piece at the time.
Each piece here is unique, personally selected by the owner Ennji Koo from South Korea. Intuitively followed by her personal taste and current trends she collects casual women’s fashion clothing on her trips to her homeland. Even if all the clothes are designed by South Korean designers there is a selective swing between modern and vintage, casual and something for special occasions. In Garden K you can also find handmade jewellery from Italy, Spain and South Korea, as well as handbags, sunglasses and some shoes.
The girls keeping the shop met during their fashion design studies in Milan. They describe the area where the shop is as one of the most lively districts of the city, and say that it is the place to explore if you want to find personal and unusual clothing in Milan.
I leave the shop inspired, sure to come back.
