Stroll in the City

Spent a few days in New York this past week working on a very exciting project. The weather was so nice and I kept joking around how I had brought the California climate to New York! Here are some photos I took near a Basquiat-esque mural...
Wearing Dolce & Gabbana wool pinstripe trousers, Margiela jacket, bandeau top, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, and vintage rings. 
The perfect Christian Louboutin pump at Bergdorf's.

I'm beyond astonished. I'm not sure if its sadder that you have no idea what you were standing in front of or if all your readers can only see you. maybe a little less time picking out your clothes and a little more time knowing history and landmarks of our cutlural influences.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, but it´s not some basquiaesque wall but it´s a part of the Berlin wall!

Christina Simon said...

I know this is a fashion blog but hey - this is HISTORY. The "Basquiat-esque mural" is a part of the Berlin wall!!!! (I know,because I have been to that cafe, too). People died at this wall, trying to flee from the oppressed east to the free west, it is THE symbol of the cold war. Look, I know you are a designer/blogger and not a historian, but you really have to know a few basics, okay? Because a faux pas like this is ... well... embarrassing. It won't hurt if next time you check out the landmarks around you. You actually might be inspired.

Oh, and before I forget it - your outfit is great. Really. As always.

It seems like every time you see a movie or TV show where police officers are involved, they seem to be wearing large sunglasses with mirrors on the outside. What are these shades and how did they come to be what they are today? The truth is that Mirror Sunglasses, as the sunglasses are called, are often associated with law enforcement and government officials for a valid reason.
