SHANGHAI AND SINGAPORE

I’m leaving on a jet plane! First stop: Shanghai. Then Singapore. Then Shanghai again. It’s mostly going to be a ridiculously undeserved holiday (I’ll be gone for almost three weeks!) but I’m also excited to see what has happened in the luxury goods industry  in Shanghai since I was there last. Which labels are big in China now? What’s the style this season? Are there any Chinese luxury shoe labels competing with Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin on the Chinese market? I will find out and report back!

I’ve never before been to Singapore, but I can’t wait for some sun and warmth. I’ll try to post pictures as soon as I’m set up wireless-wise in Shanghai.

SHOE-PERFECTION IN PARIS

The (perfect) Marilyn sandal by Rupert Sanderson. I love the puckered lips and the glitter fabric that’s so much more chic than the over-the-top glitter fabrics that we’ve seen past seasons. Love!

Perfect casual boots were also ordered from Rupert Sanderson at the Palais Royal boutique and showroom. So cool!

After going wild at Rupert Sanderson, we had an equally delightful buying appointment at the high-paced Stella McCartney showroom, with Stina and Katarina from our agency in Copenhagen. The collection was breath-taking (and perfect).

It was great seeing the Stella McCartney runway shoes for FW12 fresh off the runway, although I refrained from checking to see if they smelled of supermodel-feet. Most samples were my size or larger, so for the first time I could actually try the shoes on before buying them. Happy times!

HELLO FROM MILAN!

20120306-210645.jpg
A snapshot of me at the Rossimoda showrooms in Milan. They show the shoe collections of brands such as Cèline, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, Donna Karan, Kenzo etc. It’s always nice to see that many designers in one place instead of running ’round town chasing brands at a million different locations. But I guess despite Rossimoda’s fine attempt at easing all the buyers work load and limiting the number of appointments, these weeks in Milan, London and Paris are quite fully booked. There are THAT many great designers and NO way of putting them all under the same roof. We’ll just have to keep chasing them down at a million locations during the (nowadays) countless fashion weeks. The need for comfy flats: obvious. The desire for killer heels: all consuming.

OFF TO MILAN

So long, I’m off to Milan for a couple of days and then straight from there to Paris. I will meet with the good people at Giuseppe Zanotti, Emilio Pucci, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Azzedine Alaïa and Rupert Sanderson and view all the main collections. Busy days I’m sure, but I will love me a little southern sunshine and some continental inspiration.

The picture was taken a few weeks ago on Via Gesù after the Emilio Pucci appointment.

MANOLOS HIT THE STREETS

I wore my Manolo Blahnik BB pumps in black suede all day yesterday, and my feet were a bit tired at the end of the day (I must admit), but not in the way they usually are after wearing 105mm heels for that many hours straight. Manolos are magic like that. This is a picture I found on Stockholm-Streetstyle.com of another smart girl trusting her BB pumps whilst running about town. The BB pump has been a Manolo Blahnik favorite for many years now, and the big “secret” is that they are gorgeous, comfy and classic. What’s not to love?

ALAÏA SPRING

These Azzedine Alaïa flat sandals arrived in store this week. You can’t tell in this picture, but the non-studded one has a 15mm thick sole (very cool). They’ll be available in the web shop as soon as we catch up with photographing all our new styles.
