Why the italian word ’casata’ means also ‘family’ remains a miracle to me. If you have to much of it you feel sick for sure. Mayby that’s what they have in common. As you can see watching the cutlery the three of us were working on eating this piece of sugar. Without succes, naturally. Also, on this last day in milan mr. Yuji is knocked out from too much food- and has his diet tea after all.
It was quite hard to build our booth in Milan for Fahion Week, ss10 collections of rosa mosa footwear. But as you see, it turned out really nicely. After setting up, in the same evening, we went for dinner at a very exclusive restaurant at corso como with our viennese clients. Treating ourselves nicely with delicious main courses together with Mohitos and wines as well as with this marvellous desert was a good start for the coming days of our international shoe exhibition. The thousands of calories where carrying us through the following four days with success. Yuji just returned from milan by car yesterday, driving with a few little breaks for 11 hours to get our collection back home. And funny enough, after this week of food feasts, he was managing to reduce a few kilos. It remains a miracle how he did it, though.
Holidays localFor the first time ever we decided to close our office for a week during august. All our staff was gone on holidays, so we followed. Only an hour from Vienna we rented a house with a garden and spent a whole week there. Being in a small village with only one shop, organizing food and a good newspaper becomes a day-filling program. The apples on the trees behind our house (yes, they also belonged to us), were mega-ripe and tasted wonderful. I think i haven’t seen apples with worms since my childhood, and i got almost romantic about it, which mr. yuji found revoltingly sick of course. so by the way: what sets you into a romantic mood?
We went to PRATER the other weekend, a viennese recreation area. It’s existing there since a very long time. It was initiated by one of our past habsburg emperors, to make people relax in their sparetime and ergo to not revolt against the monarchy i guess. which didn’t work out at the end as we know from our history books… However, there were also ‘wilderer’ (illegal hunters) hanging out there a lot in the past. So therefore it was a time when it was even forbidden to enter this area at all. I like it still for it’s wilderness and hidden spots within central vienna. To get back to the start: so we went there recently. Suddenly all these pretty cars where passing us. We figured there was a one day youngtimer-race going on, and we were close from the finish. i was quite excited, not knowing a glimpse about cars, but being quite impressed by the overall conceptual dress-up of the drivers and their co’s- stylissimo. unfortunately it was really bad weather and noone was driving with open roof!—–
besides, i am wearing a (still smelly) vintage blueprint skirt- it has almost a stonewash effect through hard wear. You might not see anything at all since the photo is so bad though…
i found that skirt just recently on a fleamarket where all cars looked alike the one below. forty degrees and more. Anything to cover your car with was welcome.
