This supermodel moment is owing to Gianni Versace. This was the epitome of fashion. For the finale of his Fall 1991 show, he sent Naomi Campbell, Linda Evngelista, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington  down the runway,mouthing the lyrics to Freedom by George Michael.


An instant sensation with no Instagram! Decadent. Embellishments. Collectibles. Fashion history. Forever Gianni.

The Miu Miu presentation was like a party. The collection picked up where Miuccia left off: with jumpsuits. Short or long, in an orange compact knit, in all manner of silk prints, in navy satin, in gingham, and in sturdy cotton with the torso and sleeves cinched at the waist. Many of them featured patches with the name Marilyn stitched on them, as in Monroe, presumably; "Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend" was one of the oldies but goodies on the soundtrack. Prada mashed up body-repair-shop uniforms with Hawaiian prints and a good number of furs featuring trompe l’oeil intarsia patches and delicate bracelet sleeves.


Now you can get an all-in-one from just about every brand out there these days. What distinguishes Miu Miu’s are those patches, the strass embroideries, and the special pieces they were paired up with. This is a brand, like its family  label, that has become very clever about creating identi f iable, and hence collectible, items.

Louis Vuitton needed the resuscitation. Today, customers lined up to get their hands on the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collectibles. 


There are two relevant pop-up stores satisfying the demand for the highly anticipated must haves  in the US; one in LA and the other in Miami (addresses below). Product  quantities are limited in comparison to LV's usual plethora of merchandise. In saying that the prices are all high figures. Luxury.


On the flip side I'm sitting here watching all the hoodies, tees, hats, and wallets hit the secondary resale market; the re-worked prices making the original numbers seem ridiculously reasonable.


140 NE 39TH ST, MIAMI | June 30-July 6

833 EAST 3RD ST, LA | June 30-July 6
