The Fall/Winter 2010 shows will kick off this week, starting with menswear in Milan. Here’s a quick preview of what’s coming our way, courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana’s pre-show diary series.
It’s Domenico and Stefano’s 20th year in menswear and I’m definitely excited to see what they have in their sleeves. Too bad I won’t be able to make it to the shows. I need to save $$$ so I’m skipping Fall 2010 altogether.
However, just like the old days, I’m gonna watch the Dolce & Gabbana and D&G shows online. Ahhh the beauty of the internet.
If you live in the US and still have some spare change left (are you drowning in sale overload like I am?), be sure to check out the sale at Topman. Topman rocks because it's one of the very few places where I, a teeny, tiny, petite, slim, lithe little person, can get menswear at amazing prices.
Meanwhile, don't fret if you live outside the USA. Click HERE for the international site.
I'd visit the sale NOW if I were you. There are tons of greedy, brutal and ruthless queens out there who are out for blood. The fight for XS sizes ain't pretty.
Meet my new favourite boy — Benoni Loos. I LOVE HIM!!! I first met him backstage at Hugo Boss Spring/Summer 2010. I was quietly fiddling with my camera until he went up to me with the Fashion TV camera and the bling bling diamond microphone. The rest, as they say, is history. He’s such a sweetheart and he’s got the fiercest blue eyes ever.
It’s funny because after I took his photos, he grabbed my camera to take a photo of us together (in spite of my protests against being photographed WITH male models) but he tried to kiss my face with his tongue sticking out… It would be fun to post it on the blog but I look like shit so it’s just for my personal viewing pleasure lol.

I popped by the glorious Place Vendôme yesterday night to visit the Dunhill office and to meet the oh so charming Kim Jones, Dunhill's Creative Director. I'm really looking forward to meeting Kim. He and I were supposed to meet in Tokyo but my dinner ran late so I missed out. Now that I'm in Paris, well, I'm happy!
BTW, I look like a mess cause it rained outside and I forgot to bring an umbrella.
It's so sweet and kind of Kim to give me a preview of his Spring/Summer 2010 collection considering the show is only 2 days away and everyone is very busy. When I got to the office, the folks at Dunhill are doing the final fittings.
Unfortunately, as much as I want to share all of the photos I took
during the preview, you're gonna have to wait until Saturday, the day
of his show, to view them.
Here's a teaser — check out these mirrored luggage. I think you can see my reflection somewhere. L.O.V.E!
See you guys at the show. I'm excited to see everything on the runway!
Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Spring/Summer 2009
Remember what I told the folks over at Dolce & Gabbana/Swide when they interviewed me last week how fashion magazines are the new coffee table books? Well, a huge “care package” arrived on my desk yesterday and Kaoru Sasaki, the lovely and generous Editor-in-Chief of Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Japan (who I met during my trip to Tokyo), sent me the Spring/Summer 2009 issues of his magazines.
Terry Richardson and Barack Obama is on the cover of Commons&Sense Man. Click click click for a quick preview!
After three weeks of waiting, emails and phone tag from lots of people just to get these photos, allow me to present you these super cool bow ties from New Zealand label WORLD. I first saw them when I visited the World Deluxe store in Auckland during Air New Zealand Fashion Week a few months back.
If y'all knew how obsessed I've been with bow ties lately you'd probably think I've lost my mind. The thing is, I don't want just another bow tie… I want SPECIAL bow ties. If I wanted regular ones then I might as well go to the Brooks Brothers website (something I've done a thousand too many times recently) and call it a day. But yeah… where's the fun in that?
