leaving Trieste and yesterday in Paris

Dear Shaded Viewers,

On the last morning in Trieste Sonny and I went for a little walk.


Yesterday I met with Thomas Engle Hart to interview him for the next fashion issue of ZOO. Later on I met with Imran Amed and Antoine Asseraf to discuss the power of video on the blogs.


Of course the conversation turned to the announcement today of Diesel’s Renzo Rosso buying controlling interest in Dutch design duo, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren. Renzo Rosso has become a newer, edgier version of LVMH’s Bernhard Arnault.
