CHloe and showroom visits

Dear Shaded Viewers,

You are going to have to wait for the pics from the show but here is a little atmosphere at the Chloe show.

Beat from V Magazine and Scott
The changing of the guard at Chloe.

After the CHloe show I went for a tea at the Crillion with my friends David and Vincent where we ran into Jonathan Newhouse who was staying there while the Bristol is being renovated.


As we were waiting for a taxi to take us to the Gibo showroom. Gibo produces V & R and Chalayan among many other labels. On route we ran into a friend of Martin Webb who told me that they were planning to take me somewhre very interesting when I go to Tokyo. It was a funny robotic passage.
Hussein Chalayan looked great close up.

Imagine walking in these shoes while carrying your own private light show…

I met with Sameer and visited the Victor and Rolf and Hussein Chalayan showroom and then off to the Ritz for a quiet tea. Well, it was not queit at all as the entire New York Times seemed to be there as was Stefano Pilotti, the the team from the Villa Moda and a good portion of the front row at every major fashion show. I think that we made a bad choice actually. We would not have run into anyone if we had gone to Toraya but alas, Toraya was already closed..


After the Ritz I went to join Rafael and the team from White in Milan for dinner.

Have to leave you now as I want to see what Olivier Theyskens is up to at Nina Ricci.
