Kenzo Spring Summer 2011 Menswear Show Invite

You know how the old saying goes… early to bed early to rise! I slept very early last night (10:30pm!!) and woke up today at 7AM. Kenzo celebrates 40 years this year and I'm very determined to go to their show later.

Kenzo Spring 2011 Fashion Show Invite

I'm thinking of having breakfast at Cafe de Flore (since I'm staying at St. Germain des Pres afterall) before heading out to the show venue. Good idea?

Meanwhile, look at the details of my beautiful Kenzo jacket that I picked up a few days ago.

Kenzo Jacket

Couturetastic, no?

I hope it won't be too hot today because that jacket weighs a ton!

Dior Homme Spring Summer 2011 Show Invitation

As you know, I'm currently in Paris. I'll be here for some menswear and haute couture shows.

I won't be doing as much shows as I want to as I was late in sending my show requests but I have to give kudos to the wonderful folks at Christian Dior for accommodating me on the very, very last minute.

Dior Homme Spring Summer 2011 Fashion Show Invitation

It's my first foray to the wonderful world of Christian Dior. I'm excited! It's such an honor to be invited to Dior Homme. Perhaps next time, women's pret-a-porter and haute couture…

One can only dream….

Jil Sander Spring 2011 Menswear Show Finale

Jil Sander Spring 2011 Menswear Show Finale

Here’s are two quick videos I took of Raf Simons’ spring/summer 2011 collection for Jil Sander. I apologize for the poor quality due to the lighting. The show was held outdoors in this breathtaking villa on the outskirts of Florence. I guess they were aiming for a sunset show but the weather didn’t cooperate with us.

… and here’s the final walkthrough.

Anyway, I had the pleasure of meeting Raf before the show started. He’s tall and he’s lovely. It was somewhat eerie to shake his hand. It’s like touching Jesus.

More pics and text to follow. It’s late and I have to pack… I’m going to Milan tomorrow!

I think I don’t have that many shows on my checklist this time around. As you know, I’ve been traveling so much the past few months and I haven’t had the chance to sort out my requests. So far I’ve got a few blue-chip shows confirmed: Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, Burberry Prorsum, Calvin Klein and then I also have D&G, Cavalli, Etro, Ferragamo and I think two or three more. I’m gonna make a conscious effort to go to presentations and showrooms of smaller labels.

Jamie Bochert at Haider Ackermann SS2011 Show Finale

The super talented (and, I must add, frighteningly thinner than usual) Jamie Bochert opened and serenaded the audience throughout Haider Ackermann’s spring/summer 2011 show here in Florence.

It’s almost 4AM so I’m gonna post the photos later. I have to say the palazzo has got to be one of the most glamorous and beautiful show venues I’ve been in my entire life.

Photos from Luisa Via Roma event, Pitti and Haider Ackermann coming up!

Jil Sander Spring 2011 Menswear at Pitti Uomo 78 Florence

As a special guest of Pitti Uomo, Raf Simons will show his spring 2011 menswear collection for Jil Sander on Thursday here in Florence. I've received my invitation earlier today.

Jil Sander will also livestream their show at http://www.jilsander.com on Thursday, Jun 17 starting at 3:15PM US Eastern Time.

On a side note, I googled Villa Gamberaia, which is about 30 minutes away from Florence, and oh my lord, it looks beautiful.

Guests to the show are advised not to wear high heels due to an "outdoor location".

BTW, there's a garden party following the show.

I can't wait!
