A year ago, the Italian designer Uberta Zambeletti inaugurated her own boutique in which eclectic fashion tastes fuse with eccentric art ideas.  Seekers of stylish, yet affordable clothing, will have the chance to browse through a vast collection of trendy outfits representing a tremendous price range. In Uberta’s dynamic fashion world, price doesn’t define luxury and customers can find a high-quality outfit for $1300 as well as for $3 dollars. An artist, an interior designer and an Etro and Missoni fashion consultant, Uberta has arranged her cozy outlet in a stylish and creative manner.

Most of the clothing, specifically customized for the store, represents unknown brands, not so much in tune with Milan’s characteristic high-end fashion scene. Jeans,  bohemian edge dresses, sparkly shoes, casual  blouses and evening gowns, Umberta aims to appeal to a broad range of fashion tastes. Selected children’s and men’s items are also for sale, along with avant garde jewelry and vintage accessories.

The shop’s welcoming atmosphere is a product of its charming interior design: antique drawers and wicker baskets have been transformed into shop shelves. The monastery’s quaint features and heavy shutters  constitute part of the boutique’s décor and contribute much to its unique setting. A blend of toned-down modern luxury and historical charm – Wait and See is a true inspirational store, artfully  mixing elements of the past and the present. As its name implies, Wait and See invites visitors to take a break from their dynamic life, and ‘wait and see’ all that the store has to offer.
