Severe Acne Problem

02/09/2013, Acne, COS, Current Affairs, Ferragamo, Prada, Saint Laurent Paris

Houston Stockholm, we have a problem.

Ever heard of the phrase “Stockholm Syndrome”? Here’s a little fun fact for you — in 1973, several employees of the former Kreditbanken in Norrmalmstorgwere held hostage. During the standoff, the victims became emotionally attached and even defended their captors after they were freed. The ground floor of the same building is now the home of the Acne flagship store in Stockholm. The rest of the building now belongs to Nobis hotel where I stayed at for a week. You could only imagine how often I went downstairs to Acne. Rumi and I must’ve been there at least twice a day. I literally bought something new every day. It was so awkward telling staffers that it was somewhat pointless to wrap my purchases in tissue paper (and huge paperbags) because I’m literally staying a few floors up.

Oh Acne. Acne, Acne, Acne. Why oh why do you make some of the most relevant clothes around? You’re so dangerous to my bank account.

World Traveler Series

08/06/2013, Cartier, COS, Current Affairs, Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Morocco, Rabat, Suno

On our last day in Morocco, Rumi, Queenie and I piled into a chartered van to hit unexplored areas of Rabat. Our first stop was the shopping area at Rue due Consuls where I found an amazing hand-dyed and hand-woven hooded jacket and a messenger bag to match.

In light of our new purchases, Rumi challenged me to work on my rendition of the ‘world traveler’ look. Rumi, as you know, is known for her effortless, luxe/bohemian sensibilities. Unfortunately, I own very few options that would have passed for ‘world traveler’. Rumi vetoed out my new, space-age (as she called it) Ferragamo fall 2013 bag and the white, button-down Giorgio Armani shirt I had on. She insisted in lending me one of her her peasant-inspired blouses to match my embroidered Suno shorts. She finally gave up when I protested by crying ‘I need my fashion credits!’ in the van.

It was golden hour and we asked our diver to pull over at the entrance of a small medina just outside of the city. I hid my white Ferragamo bag inside the ethnic messenger bag and, to Queenie and Rumi’s surprise, took it out after a few shots. They both ganged up on me and laughed at my inability to pass up the opportunity of using a fashion credit.

Kasbah Chellah, Morocco

04/06/2013, Cartier, Current Affairs, Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Morocco

It was our third day in Rabat and we decided to break away from the rest of the group to do a little bit of exploring. Our first stop was the Kasbah, which we had assumed there was only one. We thought we were headed to Kasbah Des Oudaias, but ended up instead at what our driver told us was Kasbah Chellah.

Kasbah Chellah was the site of an ancient Roman city and necropolis. A local guide tagged along behind us, insisting we be accompanied. But after many protests in broken French, he left us on our own.

As we wound our way into the maze of crumbling buildings and ruins, we began to notice the many ancient gravestones as well as the immense stork nests perched among the tops of the walls and arches. The site had a strangely eerie feeling. While our visit to Kasbah Chellah was completely accidental, I have to say that I’m glad we made the trip.
