Luxury Houses have always cared about the well-being of their clients; they provide new clothing
every season, items made of the finest materials and cutting-edge stores, they even organized
cultural exhibitions worldwide, parties and stunning events, free drinks and, moreover, food-rich
feasts. “Panem et circenses (Bread and circuses!)” as the ancient latin poet Giovenale would say.
Not to mention the coolest restaurants and cafés that have been erected in honour of designers or in the name of Fashion! We are here to fulfil this task with a sample of some of the most desirable
couture breakfast spots around the four fashion capitals of the world.
SAINT LAURENT RIVE DROITE CAFÉ in Paris #saintlaurentrivedroite
What about having a French all butter croissant in a black marble pearl in the heart of The City of
Lights? As the neon sparks of the signage at the entrance, the cultural bar is reserved for the
Addicted to Love Saint Laurent and for those never tired of books, because there is also a fine
library offering the latest news.
THOMAS’S BURBERRY in London #Thomas’s
Walking through the crowded city of LNDN has its own charm and Regent Street is perfect for a
quick breakfast upstairs at the idyllic Thomas’s, so named as Mr Burberry. You will loose your
mind sipping a very British tea with jam scones and shepherd's pie.
THE BLUE BOX CAFÉ in New York #theBlueBoxCafe
A cliché…everyone knows the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s in NY City. Inspired by Audrey
Hepburn’s iconic scene, the emperor of jewels decided to open a café in his corner shop at 727 Fifth Avenue. The reopening, with a new look, is going to welcome the 2021.
RALPH’S COFFEE in New York @ralphscoffee
Here we are, good morning American Breakfast! American coffee, American pancakes with maple
syrup and dozen of blueberry muffins and crunchy brownies. Get in my belly!
BAR LUCE in Milano #BarLuce
Fondazione Prada (@fondazioneprada) organizes contemporary art exhibitions and in between
programs of course you can have a pink branded cake and a juice in the morning. Bar Luce has
been projected by the one and only Wes Anderson and pays homage to the colours he used in his
films as well as to the old bars of the city of Milan where it is common to see people eating a very
Italian panino with porchetta. But if you prefer classic Prada style in the city centre, then you need
to go to Marchesi 1824.
CONDE’ NAST FRAME in Milan @condenastframe
Brand new experience store in Piazza Cadorna, the Vogue headquarters realm opens its doors to the public in partnership with Pasticceria San Carlo. The oranges and cappuccino you ask here carry a heavy price, but it’s just 10 am in the morning: well begun is half done.
Are you hungry now, aren’t you?
