Milano

Ciao ragazzi! Come stai?

As if Croatia wasn’t enough, I went to see Milan/Italy for a whole week (#JetsetLife). Milan is supposed to be one of the four fashion forces besides Paris, London and New York. The fashion was overall disappointing though or maybe I was just doing the wrong things at the wrong places. IDK. However I ended up living in Milan’s ghetto for a couple of days (not that I am not used to the ghetto life, but still I thought I could do better at least on vacas…). And instead of whinging (which I kind of did a lot and this is the right time to apologize to the concerned people: Sorry!) I put my Black Boy Place  Picasso Baby t-shirt on, which I thought was quite fitting for the situation.

BBP (Black Boy Place) is a French clothing brand founded in 2010, which attracted success, recognition and fame in Paris (France) and overseas through artists such as Jay-Z, Beyonce or Les Twins. It draws on several clothing styles like rock style, hip hop, but also a little more classic styles to offer unique and ground-breaking designs that can be worn by everyone. The purpose of the brand is to connect both the urban and classy styles.

The t-shirt was not the problem, because it’s a cool piece of fashion, but I  literally walked my soles off. These shoes were not made for walking, especially not for at least 9 hours, which felt like 24 at the end of the day. And as dumb as I am I repeated this every day. Well, at least my Italian improved by asking for directions.

So stay tuned for la dolce vita all week long. No freaking escape!

Evelyn has already seen him last week in Paris. Check here!
Yesterday was my turn. The one and only: Jay-Z.
Me and my Clique escaped the Hard Knock Life and he made us forget all of our 99 Problems. He entered my Empire State of Mind. I couldn’t get enough Encores. And after that show he did not only Run This Town, but he definitely deserves a Crown!

The term “Niggas in Paris” has been coined so many times by the Kanye West/Jay Z duo since 2011, I almost didn’t want to put the phrase into this post. However, when Jay Z was on stage in Paris last Thursday, it really proved once more that he really was in his zone. After being in the music business for so many years, he is still one of the best live performers out there. Dancing, rapping, pushing his audience up, Mr. Carter blew it out of the water. Once again, chapeau and #picassobaby (side note: there is certainly a reason why Michel Gaubert picked that song as part of the Chanel SS14 show: For you to see, I’m the modern day Pablo, Picasso baby!)

Oh, and on the fashion side dish: Jay wore a customized Novum Praecepta (Latin for New Rules) T-Shirt among others. Such a better statement than Supreme, just saying…
