Prada presents a collection of cuffs, bangles, bracelets and earrings inspired by the glamour of 1940s haute jewellery. Each piece is crafted using artisanal haute jewelry techniques and detailing and is made with materials in bold formations of geometric crystals, inspired by the art deco era and the natural world.
Even the most saturnine and stiff personality in the world (seeing myself in 75% of it), could not stand emotionless in front of the bridal dresses and gowns of Vera Wang. Having been invited in a private view of the spring collection at the boutique, I had the opportunity to see all girls’ dreams coming true in two rooms. The finest of fabrics and a delicate technique create what could make most women out there look absolutely gorgeous. If I had to choose, I would definitely go for a close-to-the-skin ruffled organza mermaid dress (yes I tried it on but the picture was globally banned under my orders), that makes one look like having been emerged out of a shell in the middle of the ocean.
Diesel welcomed Spring with a jazz party and a live performance by Thomais Apergi, under the creative direction of the highly sophisticated Michael Pandos. In case you didn’t know, Diesel owns a vintage collection of furniture from the 60s and 70s to-make-you-go-red, that were transfered on location especially for the presentation.
The fingerfood by Wagamama was ordered in the hues of the Diesel Summer 2013 collection (how eccentric to match the clothes with what one eats) and as for the drinks the best cocktail on planet earth was served: French 76 was the name of a heavenly made champagne-and-vodka mix, the favorite cocktail that Kate Moss enjoys at The Hemingway bar of Ritz Hotel in Paris -and the one that she later chose for her wedding party. I had three and I’d almost crawl on the floor of the Golden Hall. Loved it.
