I'm not going to lie, sneaking into Milan Menswear shows in the freezing cold is fairly high on my 'wish I didn't have to do it' list right now. Luckily – and to my complete and utter relief and joy – there were a bunch of invitations waiting for me at my hotel's reception when I checked in this evening. As you'll see above, it contains all my regular Milan must-sees: Gucci, Ermenegildo Zegna, Giorgio and Emporio Armani, Burberry, Costume National, Church's, Vivienne Westwood, plus one other: I GOT PRADA!!! HOLLA!!! Now all I need is for a miracle to occur in which a Jil Sander invite manifests before my eyes. I'm not holding my breath, but it ain't over till it's over (and it's over at approximately 3:30pm tomorrow). Either which way, I've got a feeling this is going to be my favourite Milan Menswear week yet.
Landing on the Milan Malpensa tarmac this afternoon.
I LIKE YOU!
