A view of the Dior fashion boutique on the Via Monte Napoleone in Milan.
Via Monte Napoleone, also spelt as Via Montenapoleone, is an elegant street in Milan, Italy, famous for its ready-to-wear fashion and jewellery shops. It is the most important street of the Milan Fashion District known as the Quadrilatero della moda where many well-known fashion designers have their high-end boutiques and stores from Italian designers to all the world famous brands. The most exclusive Italian shoemakers maintain boutiques on this street.
Via Montenapoleone is also regarded as one of the most important 'streets in fashion', as Milan is recognized as one of the major fashion capitals in the world. Today, several of the world's top fashion houses have their headquarters, major offices or large emporia in the street.

In spite of the chic shop, the people roaming the street are all ordinarily dressed, and I find this contrast wonderful.
Nice composition. The framing too is excellent.
Have a great day!

An interesting contrast between the 'ordinary' people in the street and the high fashion in the window. None of the men are looking towards the windows. Most of the women are taking a glance at the fashion.
You have done well to bring out the details in the shadow without overexposing the detail of the sunlit architecture above.

Il faut aimer et surtout avoir les moyens . Tout le monde peut regarder, mais peu d'élus pour pouvoir entrer. J'aime beaucoup le mouvement sur le trottoir.

a shot that is full of the elegance and chic appeal of this part of Milan. A temple indeed and one that drains the credit card too no doubt! Excellent!

a beautiful and spontaneous shot in which the best part (for me) are the lovely reflections on the glass panes and the partial views of the shop interiors. It makes a fine background for the groups of people on the road who add lots of life and variety to the image. The upper part with the repeated windows and the nice ironwork is also very pleasing.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

On my first trip to Milano, I tried to collect reflections on those big-glassed windows, Stephen. But, it was with my old & small nikon and the result was not so good.
Here, managed a fabulous street scene, people coming and going window-shopping afte some of them had real shopping done. Yet, the known fashion-house shown here offer some beautiful items on display.
Vibrant and vivid scene, superbly collected.

La présence des gens montre une activité quotidienne. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la façade du magasin. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
