Geneva Girl’s Guide: Part II

Geneva 2 3

Picking up where we left off with my first Geneva Girl’s Guide post, our second day in the city dawned gloriously sunny, bright and fresh in the way that only alpine climbs can. It’s easy to understand why all the best spas are in Switzerland, the air quality there is unreal. Said “freshness” was a major blessing on that particular morning as after a thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly raucous night before, I was feeling anything but. Once Millie and I had managed to drag ourselves out of bed – despite us all having our own rooms Millie and I, and Carry and Lucy both ended up sharing a room both of the nights – and crawl down to breakfast in our pyjamas, it was time to make ourselves vaguely presentable for day two’s activities.

Dining At: Kettners

Kettners edit 5

Time for another restaurant review, mes amies! I know the past few have been of the ultra expensive variety. The kind of destinations where you only go if you’ve got cash to splash and want to spend a whole evening indulging on multiple courses, waddling out some hours later with only one thing lighter, your wallet. Well you may be pleased to learn that this one isn’t like that. I mean it could be. One could very happily spend a long evening at Kettners and plenty of hard earned dollar on their legendary champagne selection. Having been first opened in 1867, by Napoleon III’s chef no less, the place is nothing if not iconic and now plays host to jazz nights, kabaret and all sorts of deliciously debauched antics. On the flipside, it’s also an excellent spot to pop into for an excellent yet inexpensive dish served promptly by charming staff before heading on to do your debauchery elsewhere… Or, y’know, going home to bed, but where’s the fun in that?

5 Minutes With: Eddie Borgo

Eddie Borgo Portrait_April 2014_B

Throughout my fashion career and all the many fascinating interviews I’ve done so far, the way in which designers continually manage to draw inspiration from the most varied, unexpected and often surprising array of different sources hasn’t ceased to amaze me. If anything, amazed me more and more as I’ve learned more and more about the people behind the pieces we covet and what goes into creating them. In the midst of Paris Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to meet the charming Eddie Borgo, star of the contemporary world, CFDA Award winner and globally stocked fashion favourite (all in under a decade). Eddie talked me through his exquisite SS15 collection and the inspirations behind it in such detail and with such passion that I couldn’t not share a little of what he had to tell me with you lovely lot…
