On Tuesday Tokyo had one of the biggest bashes its seen in a long time. This time it was to fete the opening of the new Roberto Cavallo flagship in Aoyama from Sept…and the visit of the The Tanned One (The TO) himself, Mr. Cavalli! Yes, his arrival was delayed by a bit…and I don’t mean just to the shop. I mean it was his FIRST TIME EVER in Tokyo! Better late than never, and the fact that his first ever shop in Asia has been planted in Tokyo is pretty brag-worthy for us. Well, I don’t do party reports often on this blog but it was such a huge bash and I had on a cool dress that needs to be seen, so prego…
So The TO likes to be surrounded by The BP (Beautiful People) and the Bubbly Drinks (BD) and there was a lot of both. I ran into my friend Yu Yamada who I haven’t seen in so many eons. She looked so grown up! *tear*
Then, as I was going to make my way out of the crowded shop President of RC Japan guided me over to Cavalli through the crowd… now, I don’t speak a lick of Italian, but I *think* he said to Cavalli “She’s a stylist, she’s not from a zoo. Don’t skin her.”.
Ha. No, no…he said “She’s a stylist, don’t you love her interpretation of Cavalli?”. Which, I am taking as a HUGE compliment! Thank you, Marco!
So here is *the* Cavalli Dress that has had my name on it forever… I love this print and the cute bustle in the back. I was pretty distraught over the fact that I didn’t have any “Cavalli”-like
accessories or shoes to go with it (I realized I have no gold shoes!)…but then decided that I should just go as myself, and it would all come together in the end. Preeeego!
Roberto Cavalli dress, Tomo Koizumi top, Fakui tights, Hat is a gift from Francoise Morechand.
Afterward, we all headed to VISION on Dougenzaka in Shibuya, and the entrance was all decked out in Cavalli, with even the curtains inside sporting wild animal prints.
So happy to be a languished Pale One (PO) and still have a great time in Cavalli’s TO world.
