A pop of Persian green combined with just sober black. The temptation to match this outfit with the imposing green bronze doors of the Duomo of Milan was just too hard to resist. Apologies for not including photos of the Duomo as a whole – it’s one of the largest cathedrals in the world and in fact so astoundingly huge that I would have needed a wide-angle lens to capture it (this almost inhuman size may also explain why the Duomo took nearly six centuries to complete).

Mark Twain, a great admirer of the Duomo, described the main portal in his book Innocents Abroad (1869) as follows:The central one of its five great doors is bordered with a bas-relief of birds and fruits and beasts and insects, which have been so ingeniously carved out of the marble that they seem like living creatures – and the figures are so numerous and the design so complex, that one might study it a week without exhausting its interest”.

If the outfit doesn’t enthral you, feel free to keep yourself busy studying those marble fruits and living creatures instead!

  2. Thanks for the photo credit! I am particularly fond of that one…it took FOREVER to get a shot with no people in it! ;-)

      I was so glad I found your photo! I had been waiting for a while to capture the main door without tourists in front of it but in the end I lost my patience :) Because of that precise reason, most of the outfit pictures were shot in front of one of the smaller bronze doors, not the main one…
