Ahhhh… September in New York! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp… or not! Instead, on the first friday of fashion week I land at JFK and am greeted by the steady drip of rain that will be my constant companion for the remainder of the day.
Don’t get the wrong impression, though, it was a wonderful day that began with a full morning and afternoon of Madison Avenue shopping… for work of course, but shopping nonetheless! Barneys, Bergdorf, 45RPM and Jil Sander to name a few…
Thoughts of the morning: Jil Sander does the most luxe takes on a classic. The fabrics are beyond sumptuous and the cuts are perfectly precise. I could get lost in Barneys and preferably on the fourth floor surrounded by their incredible shoe assortment. The smell alone is worth taking the trip to 71st for 45RPM’s unique goods that have a lived-in-totally-effortless vibe.
After pulling for hours, I headed downtown for the Rag & Bone Spring 2010 collection in Chelsea. According to the cab driver who finally dropped me off still 12 blocks from my destination and already 5 minutes late, 40 minute trips that day were taking 2 hours. So I took my chances, ditched the cab, and began bookin’ it with the birkin… probably not something birkin bags are accustomed to!
Well worth the run, however, because the show was amazing! Simple and classic and totally wearble. Here is a little Spring preview:
Amazing show! Amazing Day! Amazing City! Rain drenched and jet lagged I shopped until closing time and called it a night!
End of Day 1! More to come!
