Mean Girl

26/06/2013, Brandy Melville, Current Affairs, Los Angeles

While the Milan menswear shows are going on, I flew back to Los Angeles for some non-fashiony tasks. I had to do some audio for a project I’m working on and then there’s Lindsey and Tyler’s wedding in Huntington Beach. After the wedding, Queenie drove me to Newport Beach for some fun in the sand. I’m so glad I raided Rumi’s closet beforehad though because I had nothing appropriate to wear. I flew in straight from Florence and all my clothes were dirty as fuck not to mention inappropriate. I found this strong tank top with the oh-so-famous Mean Girls You Can’t Sit With Us quote by Brandy Melville from her arsenal and boy oh boy…

U Kane’t Touch This!

19/06/2013, Christopher Kane, Current Affairs, Florence

I love a good Christopher Kane print. Especially when it features scary creatures inspired by old horror films. It’s not every day that I wear fleece sweatshirts and sweat pants but this graphic, head-to-ankle look from Christopher Kane is asking for it. Perfect for mincing around the airport or hustling the city streets.

Casa Cavalli

18/06/2013, Current Affairs, Florence, Roberto Cavalli

Ciao my dearest readers. Greetings from Florence!

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.

Calvin Klein Collection Resort 2014

12/06/2013, Calvin Klein, Fashion and Style, Francisco Costa, Resort 2014

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.

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.
