One Night Only For Real

>> I'm not sure how many of you tuned in to the live stream of the Prada Tokyo show that just took place.  I have no idea how it looked or whether it accidentally streamed my voice going "Zoom in on that guy…. now swing back to Hanne Gaby… HANNE GABY…. the blonde one!" or something to that effect.  I believe an edited version is going up along with a another video souvenir.  In the meantime, whilst I prep a bigger post, here's a true instance of One Night Only where A/W 11-12 Prada pieces show up in my hotel room with the looming grey cloud over it that seems to whisper "You don't get to keep this…"  Quite rightly so.  I'm not sure my natural inclination is to wear ¬£5,000+ in retail value in one singular piece.  So back into the pristine white bags they go tomorrow and here's the permanent bit of photographic evidence.

  1. If I have to pick a favorite piece, it would be the skirt or maybe the coat 🙂
    but I like how the whole outfit is put together something what only Susie know how to pull

  2. Hi Susie, are you going to hold the sample sale on 17th in London?

  3. I love that skirt! ok, I’m going to get some faux fur from Chinatown and make a faux fur skirt just so I can like, have some approximation of that skirt, and pet it, and stuff.

  4. I love this coat and the boots! Shame you can’t keep them as you look amazing in this outfit!

  5. I daydream about one day wearing current season anything. Nevermind future season Prada! Even though you had to send it back, it must have been fun to wear for a minute, right?

  6. Good question…. I actually don’t own ANY real python items myself mainly because of the prohibitive cost…
    To be honest the event was such a whirlwind that I didn’t have the time to consider the ethics behind the snakeskin boot. All I can say is that on a practical level, they were quite uncomfortable so I wouldn’t buy them myself any way….

  7. “that seems to whisper “You don’t get to keep this…” ” Well that’s just heartbreaking….
    By the way, love seeing someone other than a model wearing this furry jacket. Nice contrast to the slightly too perfect porcelainy campaign shots. It’s a lot more golden than I thought! And somehow with such signature pieces like the jacket and the boots you still look like you and I love that about you.
