Editor's Blog: Milan Day 1

Dsquared2, Gucci and Alberta Ferretti, MFW is go!


Today I’m wearing: Alexander Lewis dress, Prada loafers, Acne silk jacket and Prada shades

I left the house in the damp weather of London and arrived in a sunny, but not-too-warm Milan for the first show of the day: Gucci. I travelled on the same plane as every other UK glossy editor, and my friend, designer Giles Deacon, looking ridiculously perky for such an early exit.

The week ahead is so busy I think we may need an army expert to coordinate activities. Synchronise watches, Milan, the Brits are here.

1. In the car at 7am. Some subtle footwear for the plane @nikeuk

2. Unpacked. Get this woman some more hangers, pronto, and find out why she hasn't packed anything of colourful, doesn't she know PINK is the colour of the season?

3. What a wonderful phrase 'voyaging hearts' - great title for my album (sorry, book). Soap in the Hotel.


Today I am wearing: An Alexander Lewis dress because 25 degrees was promised in Milan (20, tops, in reality).
Today I am reading: William Boyd's thriller, Waiting for Sunrise, between shows and appointments.
Today I am missing: My two-year-old, even though she was up three times Tuesday night.
Today I am loving: My Simone Rocha notebook that was given to everyone on the front row yesterday. I love the nostalgic picture on the cover.

And today I am really proud to present our amazing This Is London app, taking you behind the scenes of London Fashion week. It is 35 pages in our October issue and has 30 extra pictures in this app - a first for us. If you really love fashion you will love this....
