Prada says Konichiwa

Prada says Konichiwa

>> I'm back in the living world of the internet again as I've just arrived in Tokyo and literally am shuttling at super speed from airport to hotel to a mysterious Prada extravaganza.  Prada of course have instilled a tradition of re-presenting and remixing their shows after their S/S 11 show in Beijing and now they come to Tokyo with their S/S 12 collection, which I STILL haven't found the right words to express how grateful I was to Miuccia on the day I saw it in Milan back in September.  That I have the chance to see it again in a different format, in a mysterious location and with menswear as well is on a whole other level of lucky.  That I get to wave around a handycam at the show and to have that streamed on the Prada website live, alongside the video point of views of Diane Pernet, Bryan Boy and Rumi Neely is…well… just on another level, period.  Expect a lot of cheesy flip-to-self camera action with unattractive close-ups of my sheeny shiny nose.  Misha of Tokyo Fashion Diaries and the Tokyo Dandy guys are here as the 'local' bloggers and will be snapping away too…

This Prada S/S 12 Tokyo remix as well as us bloggers' handycam skills will be streamed live (for better or for worse…) at 7.30pm Tokyo time, 10.30am London time, 11.30am Paris/Milan time and err…. 6.30am New York time if anyone there is up at stupid o'clock.

Santa also came slightly early as he may have got wind of my fantastical Christmas wishlist on 10 Magazine.  I wanted Prada's S/S 12 rose drop earrings ever since I sneakily tried them on in the showroom as I was slayed by its Barbie/Polly Pocket resin rose and this bracelet will hopefully inspire *ahem* another Santa to drop the clip-ons under the tree…

I fully realise that the Veruca Salt in me is rearing her ugly head, the closer it gets to my birthday.  The next thing you'll know, I'll be demanding that the Prada pink resin roses adorn a lilac Pegasus horse, swooping into my building to take me out for a slap up meal at the French Laundry… WOWZERZ…. the mere thought of that gives me serious tingles.
