Last Night in Florence

11 years ago by

Haider Ackermann was invited by the Pitti Uomo, and together they gave the most spectacular show. It’s as if the designer let loose the reins to his dreams. It was at the Palazzo Corsini, in a surreally beautiful baroque palace beside the Arno, two steps away from the Ponte Vecchio.

At 10:00, after a fruit buffet of pomegranates, cherries, and grapes the size of your fist, the secretive and sublime Jamie Bochert came forth in silence.

Then she sat down at the piano and started singing. All around her, violins, cellos… I’ve never heard her voice and I was absolutely blown away. It was soft, suave, and dreamy, like a summer night.

Then slowly, to her music, the models started out.

After a few sublime songs, Jamie got up. The show was over. A good runway show is always too short.

We all left with an inspiration book, a beautiful book full of images and drawings.

Wahoooooo. I’m heading down to get my breakfast and I’m going to flip hrough it with my coffee.
