This store caught my attention as I was walking through Milan’s streets. When I mentioned its name to my dad when I got back, he told me that the Sawaya guy (William Sawaya) is a Lebanese and a good friend of his and that he has started this business some 30 years ago.
Going through their website, it looks like they are well established in Italy and in the World. They’ve even been assigned to design trophies for FIFA events. [Link]
PS: I did not notice the old guy/girl in the picture until later; he/she pretty much says a lot about fashion in Milan and how people dress.
