A Beautiful Day On Bond Street

DSCN5467I’m now back in London and the city has been kind enough to greet me with some much appreciated beautiful weather. The sun is out and it’s finally beginning to feel like spring.

So, while some opted to spend their day on grass, surrounded by trees, I choose to spend my day in Mayfair and Soho, gallery hopping, luxury shopping and then ending up at a mini music festival on Berwick Street Soho where the celebration of Record Store Day was in full swing hosting live music performances on a stage in the street. All in all, it was a fabulous day!

It’s so refreshing to see something other than the regular bland black suits parading the streets. And yes, I do realize that the suits are in fact grey but something like fuchsia would simply burn my eyes as I much prefer classic, cool colors especially on a hot summery day. Then, it also doesn’t hurt to imagine the perfect tall, dark handsome man of your dreams to fill the suit. Ahhh… one can dream right!

10 Corso Como – Comme des Garçons

Had a trip down memory lane as I visited the Corso Como – Comme des Garçons store here in Minami-Aoyama, Tokyo. Minami-Aoyama is one of the more popular shopping areas along with Omotesando, which has turned into a catwalk of funky styles. Both are a must when visiting Tokyo.

The area is well known for its exclusive fashion houses and restaurants. I felt as if I was back in Milan, where I first visited the 10 Corso Como lifestyle concept store with fashion, design, music, art and photography. Icing on the cake, I ran into Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani.
