Milan debut for Hotel Indigo

A third property in Italy for the boutique Hotel Indigo brand is now open for business with the arrival in the country’s fashion capital of the 75-room Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte.

Centrally located, the building is a gateway to the world of Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana with a design taking inspiration from the surrounding neighbourhood with elements from 1950s Italian vintage fashion mixed with contemporary elements.

Room features include bold prints and splashes of colour with artwork and sketches from Biki, one of the most notable names of the Milan fashion scene in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, a pioneer in the development of ready-to-wear fashion.

Her style was typically classic Italian, made specially for the Milanese ‘vita’ – the high life. Acknowledgements to this can be seen throughout the hotel through items such as large vintage leather-bound classic trunks embossed with the property’s initials.

From ‘hat box’ bedside tables, bowler-hat lamps and sewing-machine desks, the hotel boasts special design features recognisable to the fashion connoisseur while blending with the building’s original architecture.

Other points include intricately detailed classical ceilings and panelled walls in keeping with the classical era of the hotel with an arched interior courtyard for an afternoon coffee or drink.
