So another week in fashion is over, but before we repack our bags and head to
1) Dolce & Gabbana’s embracing of bloggers and all things interactive!
We arrived to plasma screens showing arrivals (our faces that big at that time of day, we didn’t really need to see), and exclusive backstage footage, while A-list bloggers were set up on the front row complete with internet and laptops. Then of course there was the collection of glorious tailoring, tropical prints, corsetry (of course, this is Dolce and Gabbana) and pure unashamed glamour!
2) The Prada Concept Store
You want to customize a Prada jacket, trench, puffa or boots? You got it! This bespoke store in
‘Room with a View’ soundtrack that almost had us weeping from beginning to end. Yes we are that soft.
4) The new Jimmy Choo collection
You know the kid’s trainers that light up when they walk, that you’ve always been slightly jealous of? Well thanks to Jimmy Choo you too can have your own adult pair…with a heel. The ‘Zap’ heels are designed for the big kid in you, but also for the stylish lady in you too...
5) Jil Sander’s Porn!
Video screens was a bit of a theme in
6) Tod’s Presentation Setting
While we love all the fashion on our travels, we also love a bit of history. Thankfully Tod’s gave us both. After we took in all their gorgeous new season shoes and bags, we took a tour of their venue. The Villa Necchi was once home to the Italian equivalent of the Singer sewing machine family, and is as beautiful and as art-deco desirable as you can imagine from 1930s architecture. We could quite happily have moved in.
7) A bit of the Brits
Yes we were in
Now, next stop
