I was in Montreal this week for work, happy to know somethings stay the same, I went to my old haunts, L’express, Holder, the Saint Paul Hotel and Couleurs, it’s comforting to be in those places, like hanging out with your best friends.

The Iconic book “Take Ivy” by T. Hayashida originally published in 1965 is being reissued for the first time in 45 years by Powerhouse Books. It proves that certain classics always look great, penny loafers, polo shirts and oxford cloth shirts stand the test of time.

Romantic Prague

Prague Gabor jurina
On my last made jaunt to Milan I took a bit of a detour to Prague. I was seduced by its beauty immediately. For the budget conscience traveller Prague is the ideal destination. I stayed in a four star hotel at a very reasonable rate (compared to the overpriced dump in Milan) Their are many to choose from, though I recommend the Hotel David Eurostar.

The city is full of romance around every corner. I walked the streets listening to A Single Man soundtrack, as the snow gently fell from the sky I was transported into a magical world full of captivating architecture. The city is full of many coffee houses that serve delicious apple strudel, which I sampled daily, though Goulash abounds, I still prefer Hungarian and would not recommend the Czech version.
If you want to get lost in medieval romance make sure to book a trip to fantastic Prague.

walking the streets of Milan

Milan is sometimes called the Pittsburgh of Europe, but I beg to differ. Though Milan may be over priced and lacks the grand boulevards of Paris, the city possesses it’s own unique charm. The Greta Garbo show sponsored by Faraggamo was great and I even ventured to the Acquario Civico di Milano to get away from the fashion crowd. Walking around this city one can only admire the Milanese and their impeccable taste.

Animal print was out in full force in the crush that led up to the eagerly anticipated Dolce and Gabbana show.
The devotes were out in full force, including Rachel Zoe and Bryan Boy. The Gentlemen did not disappoint, many a fashion editor was almost moved to tears, widely considered to be one of the top shows of Milan Fashion week,the show was presented online and watched all over the world. Kirk Pickersgill from Greta Constantine was full of emotion after the show and revealed that it reminded him why he “wanted to be a designer”

Prada kink

prada fall2010
I had the pleasure of viewing the Prada collection for fall 2010 in the spectacular Prada show space. The Prada collection is one that must be seen up-close to appreciate, it is a world that “Fast Fashion” can not compete in.

The whole feeling I get from the Prada collection is subversive sexuality. Only Prada can make p.v.c. Lady like.
I’ve believe you have more sexual power when you leave something to the imagination, Mrs. Prada seems to agree with me. I’ve always had a weakness for fashion from the late 50′s early 60′s when so much was happening behind the doors of the perfect lady’s home… I feel this collection reflects the power of such masterful directors like Wong Kar Wai, The sexual tension in movies such as In The Mood for Love is exaggerated by the emotion repression the characters are engulfed in.

The only shoes that felt new this season were the ones presented by Prada, all those stacked platforms one sees on the streets and in other collections just seem tired and old. The Fall 2010 Prada colection is the perfect wardrobe for Eva Marie Saint to seduce Cary Grant in a modern North by Northwest.

Ferretti’s magical forest

Alberta Ferretti Fall 2010
The Fall 2010 Ferretti Collection was presented in the beautiful Palazzo Del Senato on Via Senato Milan to a jam packed crowd. The presentation was full of beautiful details that have become synonymous with the house of Ferretti.
If you are a celebrity looking for an evening gown to wear at the Oscars you need look no further than Alberta Ferretti. the gowns on the runway were an ode to feminine beauty.
There was something vaguely grecian yet modern about them. They were slinky without looking common, though if you have size dd implants (you know who you are… take them out right away)
The models looked ravishing, elegant and current.
