Sandwiched between a Friday of five shows and what will be an equally busy Sunday, I had Saturday to relax and meet with friends.
I started the day with a run at the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, walking through the thronged Belleville market on the way. By 2:30 I was at the Jeremy Scott show where models bounced down the runway to “Hey Mickey.” Scott was all in kid mode this season: there was a cape of white Mickey Mouse gloves, jackets with shiny Skittle colored buttons, and dresses covered in colorful elastic circles that called to mind balloons. The show was at the Faculté de Médecine in Saint Germain, so after I headed to Café Flore with my friend Lauren. Both the designer and the pr rep were there, “like the cast and crew hitting a diner after a show,” said Lauren. Then I went to Café Charlot in the northern Marais where I ordered a glass of Brouilly and waited for my friend Carole to get out of Ann Demeulemeester. She brought along Garance and Scott. I talked a lot with Scott about his memories of Chicago and how romantic it was for him to visit the city and have his first cultural experiences there when he was in high school (he was born in Indianapolis).
Next Carole and I moved inside for dinner and by the time I left I realized I’d been at the café for over four hours. I was going to go meet Cassi and Susan for a drink at Chez Janou but was spent and needed to get ready for today which is very busy: Andrew Gn, Akris, Costume National, Dries Van Noten, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy.
I think I will wear my leather jacket and my ivory Ralph Lauren silk skirt with knife pleats. The skirt is a risk because today is rainy. Hope I don’t get splotched.
