The orgaznization of the event was great! I loved the show! The Furla collection for spring-summer 2012 is a rich travel diary filled with visual and tactile notes on the Mediterranean and Italian tradition. The colours of nature. The blue of the sky, the black and white of rocks and pebbles, the warm earth tones such as honey, red and yellow, with gold and silver accents.
The materials: bull hide, vintage-effect leather, coarse salt-and-pepper canvas, as well as reptile skin and materials of high-tech inspiration such as neoprene.
A natural, bright atmosphere in which the Candy Bag takes center stage with a series of special editions, including the highly distinctive rubber boston bag with python-print cowhide trim presented in a fresh, lively turquoise. It is an all-Italian creative game that continues with other versions featuring bold juxtapositions and a combination of technology and traditional craftsmanship: rubber and wicker in perfect La Dolce Vita style, rubber and ostrich-feather boa worthy of the red carpet in Venice, and rubber and super-light aluminium, riveted like the fuselage of an aeroplane.

Marc Jacobs’ newest creation has a classic high-top shoe design with a twist. The sneaker’s best and most distinct feature is the beaded work on the sides and tongue. The beads are surrounded by smooth suede on the midsection and toe, and the entire shoe sits on a rubber sole with the Marc Jacobs logo. DOPE!

These showstopper sneakers ($650) are mirror platinum silver and feature a metallic silver lace-up front along with silver zipper closures at the sides as well as the back, and lastly a white rubber sole.

The first pieces that I bought yesterday evening at the Vip openning of H&M Bulgaria. A t-shirt Marni at H&M in aid of the Japanese red cross, sunglasses Marni at H&M, a pair of orange skinny trousers and some golden rings, absolutely satisfying for now. The atmosphere was crowded but cool, some champagne and food, nice music, great people, a good discount and lots of presents. I will definitely go back after the euphoria about the whole thing and buy some other stuff :-)
