War of the Wardrobes: Milan sports fashion

On one side of the boxing ring we have Dolce Gabbana, Prada, and Armani. On the other side we have a boxer, fists clenched and teeth baring. Who wins?

Milan is all about design, fashion, art, and culture. This historic city houses Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, as well as Giorgio Armani’s black label collection of suits. But can students from the University of Milan hold a candle to the clear eyes and full hearts of students at the Sports Science department of the University of Copenhagen? Vote in our poll below.

University post reporter, Victor Yakimov, visited the sports department and photographed the students of sports science, as they were doing some extra training in their spare time. Some were hitting the gym, others were practicing gymnastics, while some were busy shooting hoops. They were kind enough to interrupt their training to talk to University Post, and pose for pictures.

Maria Constantin, meanwhile, was busy traversing Milan. The sun was high upon the sky, and rays of light were beating down on the Milanese students, who, upon hearing their sense of fashion would be judged against formidable Copenhagen, dropped whatever they were doing to pose and represent their hometown.

Maria is already out with a disclaimer to protect the Milanese. Apparently, her campus shots, were from the less stylish campus. The ‘real’ fancy campus is called Bovisa campus. Disclaimer or no disclaimer, we are the judge.
