Balenciaga Special Presentation

09/10/2012, Balenciaga, Current Affairs, Stockholm

I think I’ve reached this stage where I’m (finally) becoming smarter with my purchases. After all, I’m gonna be stuck with the things I buy now for the next few months. It’s always nice to buy very, very few BUT only from the best AND wearing them to death as versus buying a lot of disposable things that you only wear once or twice. I fell in love with these great black trousers from Balenciaga in Paris. The store ran out of the pant in my size so I got it in a size larger than my usual. I’m trying to decide whether to get them altered (afterall, they were meant to be high-waisted) though I must say I love the slouchy effect. I also love how you are not able to see the leather details at the back of the obi-like bow on the front. Secret luxury. The black boots are also from Balenciaga. Picked them up at the men’s store in Rue Saint-Honore. I’m gonna make these boots my everyday shoe. As for the t-shirt, lord have mercy, I know, I know. Please don’t judge me. Thank you.

At long last, we finally met.

Such an honor to have met the legendary, the one and only, the grand master of them all… Mr. Azzedine Alaia!

A Cross To Bear

08/10/2012, Current Affairs, Versace

Donatella fans rejoice! Versace recently launched their e-commerce store. It’s always nice to see brands directly set-up their own online point of sale versus going through third party retailers with edited selections of a brand’s offerings. You can now shop Versace’s blockbuster items from their fall/winter 2012 selection. Donatella sent me this gorgeous, crystal-embellished byzantine cross, oversized pouch — and I love it! I love a good blingy bag both for day and night time.

Carine Roitfeld’s Ball, Paris

08/10/2012, Carine Roitfeld, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Fashion Designers, Fashion Editors, Karlie Kloss, Models, Paris

I know it doesn’t sound very me to say I haven’t gone to many parties the past month. When you’re staying far from the city center and have early morning appointments and shows to attend, you have no choice but to tuck yourself under the sheets as early as possible. But when Mama Carine invites you to her ultra chic black-tie ball to celebrate her collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, you better put that mink bow tie on and go where the fashion flock goes. Where else could I dance with the legendary Mr Alaia, shake my booty on the dance floor with Mr Ackermann, have Mr Testino tell me “I looooooove your fur!” and freak out with Rachel Zoe at the courtyard because of a mystery man going nuts with the fire extinguisher? Only at Carine’s ball where fashion stars align, let their hair down and have lots of fun. Best party of the season. #NUFFSAID

Monochromatic Love

30/09/2012, Barbara Bui, Costume National, Current Affairs, Paris

Let’s not kid ourselves. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of using the Tour Eiffel as a photo backdrop whenever I’m in Paris. It has to be done at least once, you know? I thought I’d get it out of the way after the Costume National show at Palais de Tokyo this afternoon, . Bucket list check, done and done. Next!

Goodbye Summer!

28/09/2012, Barbara Bui, Current Affairs, Paris

Are you ready to bid adieu to summer? I am. The weather here in Paris has been quite unpredictable. It’s been quite cold compared to previous Septembers. Rumi and I took a quick stroll around the Tuileries yesterday afternoon in between shows.

Blending In

28/09/2012, Bruno Magli, Current Affairs, Paris, Sonia Rykiel

Arrivederci Milano et Bonjour Paris! It’s so nice to be back in Paris once again for the final stretch of fashion month. I wasn’t in my best form in Milan — I was sick for the entire week. I can’t believe I still went to the shows in spite of me having a flu. I was a germ carrier. My oh my, I’ll never forget sitting there, sweating my butt off from all the hot flashes I had because of all the pharmaceuticals I took. I’m starting to feel much better now (oh look, I’m holding a ciggie!) but it doesn’t help that Paris is cold and rainy. Ah well. Summer is officially over.

Hater Blockers

It’s been quite some time since I last took these Alexander McQueen visors out for a spin. I’ve had it for a couple of months now. It never fails to draw so much attention — I’ve been stopped many, many times on the street from people asking me whether I could see through them (the answer is yes)! And then of course, talking to my friends always result in major hysterics. “You need to take them off when I’m talking to you. I can’t take you seriously!,” a friend quipped. The visors are obnoxious, yes, but it’s a great conversation piece. I love it.

I ended New York Fashion Week on a high note. At the Calvin Klein Collection dinner held at the new Beatrice Inn, I had the pleasure of meeting three wonderful sportsmen of the moment: the very handsome Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Conor Dwyer, superstar New York Knicks basketball player Amar’e Stoudemire and the Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist.
