Andres Sarda is a swimsuit/lingerie designer. I absolutely adore the Andres Sarda runway shows, because they are always just a big party. The designs are not super wearable but they are gorgeous, and I love seeing them, especially the silky capes and robes that float down the runway.
This season, the theme was Las Vegas-bright, sexy, bold and glittery. My personal favorite was the Britney Spears Toxic video-esque glittery sheer bodysuit. Really, I can´t think of a single occasion where this may be appropriate (except for a Britney Spears music video of course!) but it was still absolutely fabulous.
Mid show, a curtain dropped, and live DJ´s were spinning at the top of the runway. One of them was Bimba Bose. Later, Bimba walked the runway as Elvis, with a model dressed as a bride. Viva Las Vegas!
So I was just in London and Milan for Mens Collections, totally fabulous, you can read all of my recaps on Best Dressed Man on the Planet. I had hoped to get a little time in for womenswear or for shopping but no luck on that end. The only thing I was able to snap while rushing from one show to the other was this GORG yellow coat…I don’t even know the name of the boutique I was at. I just know this coat stopped me in my tracks! It looks so soft and wonderful too…don’t you want this wrapped around you right now?!
I WANT THIS COAT!
One of the few things I like about winter is the onset of the Christmas holidays (the other things are the smell of cinnamon and suede boots-and that’s pretty much it). I love seeing big cities, such as Madrid and NYC set up their Christmas lights and decorations. Paris, Rome and Lisbon are also beautiful to see at Christmas, in my opinion. This year is a little different, this will be the first time EVER I am going to the USA for Christmas since I have lived in Spain. I’m heading to Arizona, and I am not going to lie, I am thrilled to see my family and sunny skies again. However, it will definitely be different not having all the typical things at Christmas I have gotten used to over the past six years here in Madrid. Anyway, although I am heading out mid December, I was happy to get a little taste of Christmas here in Madrid in a boutique window display the other day-the shop’s name is FL and it’s located on Calle de Ortega y Gasset. Anyway, the display was a simple woman’s dress made out of pine and Christmas tree. Although it’s not what I would consider wearable, I was thrilled to see a little Christmas spirit around these parts!
Christmas is coming to Madrid!
