>> I think I seriously offended certain Milanese people with my Six London shoes, which I wore yesterday in this neon n' beige outfit cobbled together from Yoox finds. There were real detectable looks from people, which combined shock, bemusement and revulsion, on a day when the city was rammed with Venetian carnival partakers wearing masks, costumes and tossing confetti about. Oh well, trust the fashion carnival to try and usurp the bigger picture as though we were the centre of everyone's attention (ludicrously, I did overhear a fashion show goer say "Oh my god, don't the Milanese know it's FASHION WEEK?"). I can't say that I'm able to go about town discreetly wearing these fluoro bad boys but at the very least I can comfortably walk to and from appointments easily, whilst carrying with me a whole lotta platform.
There was supposed to be some deep and meaningful analogy between the two different carnivals but once again, I'm on the road back to London for a day before heading out to Paris so hopefully you know the score and realise this is in fact a gratuitous piccy post to say that I'm alive, clomping about merrily and eating a lot of gelato along the way.
