What is Fuorisalone?

“Fuorisalone” is the most important event in the world related to the topic of design. The term is used to define the events and exhibitions that animate the entire city of Milan during the weeklong “Salone del Mobile” happening in April.

The ‘Salone del Mobile’ and ‘Fuorisalone’ define Milan’s Design Week, premiering the latest trends for the forthcoming year and heralding a tidal wave of events, exhibitions and presentations. During the Fuorisalone, many locations usually feature longer opening hours, like the Crypt of San Sepolcro, that in occasion of Fuorisalone 2016 was open until 9pm. Moreover, during Milan Design Week many important brands located in the design districts introduce their new collections and host special events with live music and entertainment for a totally unmissable extravaganza.
GQ article about Joe Jonas carrying a Switch as a fashion item:

Last night, as much of the East Coast dug itself out of a dreary blizzard, Joe Jonas channeled the bright California sunshine in a velvet bomber jacket that just so happened to be bright-ass yellow. In his hand, he held a Nintendo Switch, the other biggest trend of 2017 (we'll get back to bringing video games to a restaurant later).

just a reminder that design does not equal fashion.

Some fashion product has bad design and vice versa.

Greatest Ever

It's really fucking wide in his hand. Might as well pocket a joycon or two and hold it normally.

Then again, it would look like a normal tablet.

Lastly...carry on, nerds.

Says the unattractive middle aged b.....
she isn't worth your time anyway. There's plenty of so called "nerds" with significant others and fulfilling lives on this forum alone. She must have the salts.

But will I become more attractive when I dock the console?

I was playing the Switch today on the train. No joycons, just the tablet. A little bit of VOEZ and Human Resource Machine. The unsuspecting passengers had no idea ;)
