Hola mamacita! Hola papi chulo! Despite all my world travels, I had never been to Mexico. It seemed appropriate that Mexico City be my introduction. I’ve heard so many things about this megalopolis — glorious food, terrible traffic, and plenty of pollution, but to be honest, as I stepped off the plane, I had absolutely no idea what to expect.
I had a long list of places to visit in the city, but at the top was the Centro Historico, or the historical center of Mexico City. At its heart was the Zocalo, a plaza lined with immense buildings with ancient facades stained by the pollution and hundreds of years of rich history. Standing at the center of it all, listening to the bells of the cathedral, I felt as though I could have easily been in some other old-world European city.
Queenie and I left our hotel, the Condesa DF in Condesa, at the crack of dawn to beat the crowds and traffic. We spent the entire morning wandering around and paid our dues at some of the old, very old fixtures, such as the Palacio Nacional, Cathedral Metropolitana, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Museo Nacional de Arte and Palacio de Correos. We got back to the hotel just in time to make the last call for breakfast. We couldn’t have had a more productive morning!
Some of my fur accessories were featured on today’s issue of Womens Wear Daily alongside Louis Vuitton, Fendi, etc.
Oh Mexico. It’s never too warm to sport a little bit of fur. I must say I can’t live without my lovely purple fur camera strap from my collaboration with Adrienne Landau. This is the the original prototype version in mink fur and we’re producing them in rabbit, raccoon and fox versions.

As you guys already know, I skipped the Fall/Winter 2013 shows in Europe due to filming engagements in Los Angeles. Now that I’m back home in New York, I thought I’d take the time out to view everything that I’ve missed. I recently popped by the Saint Laurent Paris showroom uptown the other day for a quick re-see. As always, it’s so different to see the garments up close. I found Hedi Slimane’s collection ultra luxe, extremely well-made, not to mention highly wearable. And relevant! I love the youthful energy and vibe. Some of the pieces are even downright unisex! My personal favourite items include: the white rabbit fur jacket (women’s) and coat (men’s) dyed to resemble ermine fur, the luscious mohair cardigans, the unisex shoes (they released a number of ultra classic yet edgy black biker boots, one of which came even came embellished), the mammoth salmon fox fur chubby coat, and a wide variety of strong jackets and statement capes.
