Dayne Johnston at the Rick Owens show. Zambesi’s Dayne Johnston wrote a diary for Viva while in Paris, chronicling, among other things, his experience being pick-pocketed in an Australian sports bar. “[W]e head off to a skanky bar filled with Australians to watch the New Zealand versus Italy football game… Then… disaster!

Backstage at Lanvin with Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver. Friends! I’m flying to Europe tomorrow! I’m a crazed mixture of excited and scared, ecstatic and anxious.
