If you weren’t fortunate enough to see the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — I missed seeing it by mere minutes as I approached the ticket counter hopelessly out of breath only for a MET guard to look me up and down to tell me the exhibit was closed for the day — then you have but a few days to not miss another giant.

Espresso or caffé as it is simply known in Italy is brewed by forcing nearly boiling water under high pressure through finely ground coffee beans.

To daisy-chain this metaphor even further, the same is also true of our models walking the runways of the Italian fashion capital.
