Armani Hotel Milano is celebrating its 10th year anniversary. It was in November 11, 2011 when, thanks to the project set up by Giorgio Armani S.p.A. and Emaar Properties PJSC, Armani Hotel Milano opened its doors in the heart of the city, after it had launched Armani Hotel Dubai.

The Hotel is located in the rationalist building designed by Enrico A. Griffini in 1937, which from above, presents a silhouette shaped as an A, and involves a world of harmony, privacy, and attention to the safety of the guests.

A decade celebrated by Executive Chef Francesco Mascheroni with a menu that consists of the most remarkable dishes of these years, recalling the evolution and the successes. The raw material is always the main focus, in its purity and authenticity; the design and the colours of the dishes meet different places and atmospheres of the hotel in pictures shot in the main spaces (Armani/Bamboo Bar, Armani/SPA, the rooms, Armani/Ristorante), in an ideal embrace between materials and furniture which makes the hotel a unique place of Milanese hospitality.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
