The Ladybug and her journey through African art in Milan

The Ladybug Chronicles MUDEC Africa (8)

I remember that I was waiting for the train in the subway in Milan when I saw the poster of the newly opened MUDEC museum (Museum of Cultures) and of their opening exhibition “Africa, la terra degli spiriti”. My love for African culture and my curiosity for the new museum got immediately my attention even if it took me a while before finding the time to enjoy this experience, which happened about a month ago. I should have posted this earlier because the exhibition ended the 30th of August but for those of you who missed it I can tell you that it was really a shame because the exhibit was totally amazing!

270 pieces of African plastic art were exposed, exploring the peculiar connection between humans and spirits in African art. The atmosphere of the place was magic, the sound and the music incredible which made this visit feel more like an exotic fairytale than just an exhibition visit.

For the occasion I couldn’t help wearing my beautiful handmade African skirt made by Madame Ilary with original African fabric mixed with the retro style of a circle skirt! I love this skirt so much because I think it says a lot about me and what I love. I wanted for it to be “the statement piece” of this outfit and this is the reason why I paired it with total black: a simple t-shirt from Cos and a pair of décolleté from 8 (that I replaced with Lolita Milano flats when my feet couldn’t walk anymore!!).
