>> Ok so three days of solid shopping in Tokyo may have pumped the air into my head rendering me nothing but a credit-card swiping drone who pats herself on the back after 'scoring' some item or another (I need to decease using that word‚Ķ I didn't SCORE anything.  I merely handed over my own money and bought it.)

Miu Miu Musing III_atmosphere

Miu Miu Musing III_Imran Amed_Suzy Menkes

I'm not going to recap what went down at the first Miu Miu Musing event held at the beautiful 1st floor of the New Bond Street store in London a couple of weeks ago, one that follows the two hosted by Shala Moroque and Andre Leon Talley in New York in an intelligent way when the mighty BOF has done it so superbly.  What can I say?  The short of this discussion "The Pace of Fashion", hosted by Moroque and moderated by Imran Amed of Business of Fashion was that Suzy Menkes totally bossed the convo by consistently coming up with very salient points, with which we (including the likes of Paula Reed of Grazia, Lisa Armstrong of The Times/soon Telegraph, Penny Martin of the Gentlewoman, Karen Langley of Dazed & Confused etc etc etc‚Ķ) all nodded in agreement.  It felt a little like at a seminar at uni when there'd be that one person who'd ALWAYS have something good to say and you're feeling like the point that you had in your head was a pile of poo so you just end up staying mute.  I did pipe up a few times when anything "digital" came up as did Alex Fury of SHOWstudio.  What surfaced in the 'conversation' wasn't anything particularly new, but it's always good to rehash and reflect that the current fashion calendar has its ups and downs in relation to when things go into stores, customers always want something new hence the relevance of pre-collections and that different levels of media speeds be it weeklies, monthlies, bi-annuals or the internet suits different purposes and as a conclusion, it's a good thing to be able to choose.  Huzzah to the last point and we'll have to see whether the way clothes are presented will be changed to meet customer/media satisfaction.  An edited video is also available for all to watch should you want a better gist of what went on‚Ķ

Now on to more pressing matters‚Ķ from the Miu Miu Musing‚Ķ I got a Miu MiUSB that made me squeal in that aforementioned airhead manner that I've adopted in the last few days.  The mere appearance of a weighty gold bar is always good in times of economic uncertainty but it's the 4GB storage on it that really got me excited.  The mini sequin coin purse that accompanied the USB stick also has a pleasing sequin effect which means you can switch it from silver to multi-colour sequins with a "wax on, wax off" action.  I've huffed so much umami goodness in the last few days and so many lovely store air fumes that I actually seem to be under the impression that gold ingot USB sticks and sequins are the main points to take away here…

    what an interesting video! i was captivated. as a conversation about the speed of fashion/fashion on the internet, you would think blogging would have been brought up. they seemed to focus on twitter a lot. she said kate middleton caused the rapid increase in the sale of wedges, but i think blogging be a reason too, what blogger doesn’t wear wedges?

    Your so funny! Nothing like the appearance of a gold bar to lift your spirit!
    Suzy Menkes is such a clever lady! Always interesting!
    But I thing this whole discussion about new technologies vs traditional media is getting a little too much!
    They are different media serving different purposes. I mean, I keep buying magazines and I watch blogs on a daily basis, so, both need to co-exist! And the timing… and the speeding-up, the craving for new stuff, for novelties…
    Maybe everyone should just cool down…

    An easy way to turn an electronic gadget into fashion object, just paint it in gold =)
