Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Eva Cavalli’s party for Cash & Rocket, a tour organized by women raising funds for charity.
Roberto’s son Rob invited a few of us back to their Villa the day after for an impromptu lunch and pool party — a great way to beat the Italian heat. The Cavallis are such gracious hosts. Their home up the Florentine hills is nothing but magnificent and inspiring — think mink carpets, sable fur throws and unicorn sculptures. It was certainly a far cry from how I grew up as a child. It was magical!
Meanwhile, I had to make a new friend out of the leopard-print rabbit fut teddy bear in one of the salons.
I popped over to the Calvin Klein Collection showroom earlier this afternoon to see the Resort 2014 collection by Francisco Costa. I couldn’t stop myself from touching the oh-so-chic ultrasuede pieces; love the green coat on the rack, the short, boxy white jacket and the long-sleeved blue top with the zip on the back. It was refreshing to see Francisco use denim. I also love the colourful collaboration with the artist Ellsworth Kelly. Not shown on the runway was this amazing, graphic, black and white printed jacket and trousers; had my name all over it. Want. Love. Need.
