With the first ever Fiorucci store opening in Milan, we are proud to partner with White Milano to bring this famed Italian heritage brand back to its roots” affirms - Janie Schaffer Fiorucci’s owner.

Not only do we aim to pay tribute to a great innovator, who has always inspired me with his vision, we are also thrilled to contribute to the brand’s return and re- launch, which is going to start right here at White Milano."
