If there is social media habit that I particularly loathe it’s anything involving #blessed. Use of the dreaded hashtag blessed ranges from tributes or thanks to family and friends – the kind that would usually be touching were they not accompanied by said abomination – to barefaced smugness about one’s career/new handbag/hot bae*/super luxe holiday. There’s just something about it that makes me inexplicably and unattractively angry about everything. However, more often than I care to admit, I’m severely tempted to hashtag blessed it up myself and only manage not to because I’d then seem like a colossal hypocrite and it would be very hard to argue that I was actually doing it ironically. One such time was when I stayed at the Four Seasons Milan. Obviously, that would have been a #blessed of the extremely, perhaps even repellently, smug variety…
It’s been a fair while since our last edition of “Introducing” and once again, I pin the blame firmly on fashion month. I’m going to have to stop using that as an excuse pretty soon I know but for now it’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Anyway, I have so many exciting talents I can’t wait to write about – including a few I spotted in the Paris showrooms – and can think of no better createur to kick off with than Richard Braqo.
