Milano SS12- Silly little things that make us happyMilanoSS12
This weekend that Giulia and I spent in Milan was short but also intense and exciting. Not only we were thrilled to see the shows first hand but there were so many bits before and after them that helped make the weekend one to remember.
The first of the highlights was hanging out at Villa Necchi, where the Tod's presentation was taking place. If being in the company of the Tod's team isn't enough of a pleasure the setting was dream-like. The 1930's villa had this timeless air to it and you could almost feel all the glamourous parties that had happened there over the decades. The garden and the pool at the front, by which Tod's had set up their bar, were the best way to spend a few hours and find refuge form Milan's summer heat.
We were most excited about attending our first Burberry show. Looking at the super cool wooden card invite we buzzed with anticipation. Sharing the beautiful space for the catwalk with some of my  favourite editors like Sally Singer, Bruce Pask and Franca Sozzani was an honour as was bumping into Anna dello Russo on the way in. Other fashion insiders like Tommy Ton and Brad Goreski (who couldn't be missed in that neon orange Jil Sander) were also there.
The day after the show we loved going to the Burberry showroom to be able to have a closer look at the brilliant collection and, in my case, to start making a mental list (or maybe not so mental...) of my musts for s/s12. There we also met part of the lovely Burberry team, who were agreed with us in that us Londoners are not yet ready for the high Italian temperatures.

To top it all off and this is, perhaps, the silliest of our happy moments, we found this picture below among Burberry's press images from the show. You can just about see us but that's Giulia and myself (or a little bit of us) being mesmerised by the Burberry collection. And those people at the front, less important of course, are Julian Morris, Cara Delevingne, Rob Pryor and Jake Cooper looking swell.
