The Wes Cafe
You might have noticed that I'm a bit partial to all things Wes Anderson around here so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that he'd designed a cafe in Milano in the Fondazione Prada. Having walked past it three times without noticing it, the fourth time drew me in when I noticed a woman holding a paper shopping bag with the words 'Bar Luce' beautifully written on its side.
Nico 'These days' began playing in my head. I stepped inside. It was overwhelmingly beautiful, here is what I saw......
50's style pastel pinks, blues, and greens. The ceiling recreates the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele of Milan
The working jukebox with 'Two Hundred Selections'
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou pin ball machine is key.
The waiters fit in perfectly with their white shirts and black bow ties, they always carry something delishisly Wes Anderson
The prettiest cappuccino I've ever had was only €1.50
And all the sugar packets I stole as souvenirs were free!!!
My 'Ice Pop Watermelon' Ray Bans fit the scene beautifully
They serve candy and ice-cream, of course
