We know Milan is a revered fashion capital. But sadly, as an ageist world, we dont often associate style and glamour with older women.

But Instagram account Sciuraglam is changing all that and celebrating the fashion savvy grannies, or nonne as theyre known in Italian, who roam the streets of Milan.

The account profiles the Mediterraneans most fabulous grandmothers voguing for the camera and just going about their fabulous lives.

Prepare for some serious style envy.

The man behind the account is dental student Angelo from south Italy, who wishes to hide his identity from the rest of the world.

Nobody knows my real identity apart from some of the women I photograph, and I would love it to stay this way, he tells Teen Vogue.

I didnt start this to be famous. I want the account to be focused on the women, not me.

I didnt have a real reason to start it, I just fell in love with these iconic women in Milan, Angelo says.

He started snapping some of the fashionistas he came across in his daily life on his camera phone in December 2016.

Now hes archived the pics into the account, which has 126,000 followers.

Angelo became fascinated by their sartorial choices and marvelled at their efforts.

I wish we were them, because they are beautiful, and their lives are so much easier than ours. They go to grocery stores dressed in Gucci or Prada, and we just go to university.

They are always in the centre of Milan, because they are rich.

Fittingly, he called the account Scuiraglam referring to sciura, meaning rich women in Milanese dialect.

He revealed that women from his hometown dont dress this way.

Angelo still wants to pursue dentistry full-time but photography is his passion.

We can only hope to be as stylish as these women in the future.
