Fash­ion roy­alty’s guide to Mi­lan.

Elle (Canada) - - Elle -

I feel more like a stew­ardess than a re­tail direc­tor,” jokes Maria Gi­u­lia Maramotti, who over­sees bou­tique brand­ing for Max Mara, the Ital­ian fash­ion gi­ant founded by her grand­fa­ther Achille. “Since we have stores all over, I get to travel the world by work­ing.” One of Maramotti’s favourite des­ti­na­tions? Mi­lan, where she lived for more than 10 years. “I love the en­ergy—it’s very cool, very Ital­ian.” FLIGHT PLANS Cur­rent home base “Chelsea, in New York City.” In­flight en­ter­tain­ment “Pounds and pounds of mag­a­zines.” Packing list “I’m sur­gi­cal when I pack. I’m a shoe ad­dict, though, which makes ev­ery­thing more com­pli­cated! I’m not a huge fan of flats—I like very sexy shoes.”
