If you are in town for fashion week check out a “House of Shades” in Milan

If you happen to be in Milan from 24 Feb through 2 March 2010, for fashion week, may we take the liberty of recommending a must see! Last night the “House of Shades” in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Piazza Duomo, was officially opened to the public.  The site-specific installation, by the Indian artist Sudarshan Shetty, is an iron frame constructed house which hold hundreds of pairs of sunglasses in place around you.
As you move throughout the installation you are struck by your own reflection in the many shades that surround you. All eyes are on you, literally.  You are forced to look at yourself and for some this could be a form of pleasure or pain.  It is the perfect compliment to Milan Fashion Week. An amazing installation and a fantastic discover by Louis Vuitton.
