At the finale of Kenzo’s Spring/Summer 2012 menswear presentation today, the models walked out en masse amidst a shower of bubbles. It was the children’s birthday party equivalent of Burberry’s real life catwalk rain shower last season, and it provoked childlike reactions from even the most jaded editors in attendance. The moment designer Antonio Marras had taken his bow, everybody rushed out to pop as many bubbles as they could without getting their clothes all sticky (you could just about see the Parisien dry cleaners rubbing their hands together in glee). Wondering how I managed to get so close to the action? Today, Kenzo gave me my first ever European front row seat. I will forever reserve a place in my heart for the letters/number combination Aa8. Look Ma, I’m on top of the world!
I LIKE YOU!
