Olivia Kim, Nordstrom‘s director of creative projects, tells us about her nonstop Fashion Week adventures in What’s Up, Olivia.
Breakfast of fashion champions was caramel popcorn at the KENZO show this morning, a collaboration with David Lynch. There was certainly a Twin Peaks, I’m-channeling-Laura-Palmer aura in the air, and seeing my old friends Carol and Humberto stage another high-graphic, high-energy show is the best! (Read The Thread’s Runway Rundown on the KENZO show.)
Gotta wear comfy shoes for all the walking, talking, moving and shaking. I’m not a wimp when it comes to pain, but my little feetsies are, so I gave them a break today and wore my favorite sneakers. Marciano, the driver, wore his, too.
Nicholas Kirkwood presented his new collection this morning.
Super-cool set design to match the super-cool heels.
Jewelry shopping with mega mega showroom.
Sometimes, you just gotta get down and dirty. Found some really cute things here. Coming to a store near you real soon!
A Century of Fashion at Condé Nast was an awesome, compact exhibit at the Palais Galliera Musée de la Mode. My favorite was Guy Bourdin’s first photo for Vogue, February 1955—and, of course, all the other fashion photog masters, including Albert Watson, Horst P. Horst, William Klein amd more current photographers like Inez and Vinoodh and Terry Richardson.
Then a quick coffee and amazing people-watching with Justinian and Camilla at L’Avenue in the 8th arrondissement.
And the night ends with me, Joey and James at our favorite bar, Carr’s, which is just a divey hole in the wall really. And that leads to airplanes on the bed…
…and the best discovery super late at night: hotel potato chips!! Woo hoo!
