Poca & Poca

I got information on a popular brand I have heard about previously from a fellow blogger friend.  Poca & Poca is a new designer brand, created in 2010, that comes from Poland and is based in Dubai.  This brand is being sold now online at Goji Boutique for anyone who's interested.  I find the collection eye catching, simple, chic, girly.

Travel Advice: Armani Hotel Milan - Italy

Opened: 10th November 2011

The second Armani hotel to open after Armani Hotel Dubai (which I have visited earlier this year) is Armani Hotel Milano, and its only natural that it would open in the city of designer Giorgio Armani himself. The hotel has opened in the famous fashion district, within the extraordinary palazzo at Via Manzoni 31 (the same building as the one I mentioned in my Armani Nobu post)

The 95 rooms embody the hallmarks of the Armani brand: elegance, comfort and sophistication, and provide in-room amenities that are specially tailored for the utmost convenience of the guests.
All the public areas are concentrated on the seventh and eighth floors which have views of a spectacular and unexpected panorama encompassing the city, from the historic Duomo to the latest skyscrapers. The Armani/Ristorante is located on the seventh floor, where it offers superb traditional Italian gastronomy, an exclusive wine list, a private dining room and a Chef’s Table within the kitchen itself. On the opposite side, the Armani/Lounge with the Armani/bamboo bar looks out over the skyline: the double height ceiling, the wall with its huge window softened by louvered blinds and sections in backlit onyx and a good choice of music ensure a relaxed ambience in which to enjoy an informal meal, afternoon tea, or a light bite before dinner.
The Armani/SPA consists of six dedicated treatment rooms, a Couples Suite, a fitness gym, and a pool designed for relaxation with a temperature control system for maximum comfort. The sunscreen walls that filter out the bright light and the roof with its magnificent view across the skyline establish a slightly surreal mood. The gym also offers a wide choice of equipment for cardiovascular and muscular training, and is open 24 hours a day.

Chanel 11/12 Meteirs D'Art Show

The Bombay-Paris show is a spectacle.  I fell in love with the runway setting probably more than the clothes.  I loved the skinny above knee off-white boots and a some of the Chanel classic tweed jackets. Check out the full runway (link).

The Yas Hotel becomes The Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi - UAE

An architectural triumph acting as the centerpiece of Yas Island, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi hovers over land and water and spans the Yas Marina Circuit, the favored racetrack for Formula 1™ legends.
Underneath the hotel's sparkling canopy, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi presents guests with a new perspective for a resort, perched between city sophistication and jet-setting island glamour, completed by Viceroy's distinctive service.

Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi provides the utmost in choice and diversity, from 499 stylishly appointed rooms and suites to a menu of signature treatments at the spacious resort spa by ESPA.

Travel Advice: Armani/Nobu - Milan, Italy

Armani/Nobu is the one of the most popular restaurants in the whole of Milan.  Anyone going to the city has to visit this hip Japanese restaurant located in the huge Armani building on Via Manzoni.  It is on the other side of the building which also houses Armani Prive and Armani Cafe.  The atmosphere in the downstairs area although a smoking area is nicer than the upstairs one.  I'm against eating Japanese in Italy, but a Nobu is always an exception, along with another restaurant I will write about later.  All the food was really good and up to the Nobu standards.  Reservations are required.
Address: Via Pisoni 1 (at the side of the Armani building on Via Manzoni)
Opening times: Mon-Sat noon - 2:30pm & 7pm - 11:30pm
                       Sun 7pm - 11:30pm
Tel.: 0262312645
