THE THINGS I DO TO MAKE Y’ALL LOOK FLY PARIS NEIGE STORM 13 (DAY 1)

…Ahh, another season is upon us and it’s time to go to Paris again for Men’s Fashion Week. Three hectic days of craze where we nearly die of exhaustion running from showroom to fashion show, to party…all for fashion. And if we are lucky, time permitting we get to allow ourselves a late night snack.

All this so you can look fly!

Day 1

Starts off like most Paris days in January.  A little cold but nothing too bad… we see some of the usual sights, “Space Invader” hitting our local cafe…

 Now on to the Junya show…I have to admit…the invite had me worried.  A little boy covered in tin foil…in Comme Des Garcons world…that could mean a whole season of tin foil suiting…But I was ready!

Pleasant surprise, no tin foil suits but they did find themselves a rather peculiar model?  This guys walked around like an 80 year old in Miami with a really bad back.  We weren’t sure if he was serious or what?!  But he did the whole show like that.  Quite entertaining.

Here I am studying the collection hard…

There is our boy again….couldn’t get enough of him…

After the show, the fellas get together to talk shop…you can see our Boy Tommy Ton just out of focus in the background, repping Ten C!

There’s Tommy again…and we bumped into our boy Greg repping the Fur collar..

Vic’s first time in Paris…enjoying the sights…he was a little uncomfortable with the cold but nothing too bad.  Little did he know what mother nature had in store for him…

After the show we decided to get a quick bite at my favorite lunch spot, Rose Bakery.

mmmmm

Back to work, next stop…we went to check out the new Marcelo Burlon collection.  Hot Fire!

Luke tagged along…this guy!

For fall Marcelo will be introducing hoodies…really dope!

This is Vic’s Paris look…

After Marcelo it’s on to the Visvim showroom.  See that look Richard is giving me?  That’s cause I asked for a discount!

Hiroki Nakamura Aka “N”, in the building!!

Alex from Undefeated Santa Monica decided to crash our trip…here he is disusing the finer points of men’s fashion with Ryno.

ahh…the lovely family…

Hiroki says that he has been living out of this camper, right here in SoCal for the last two months…they brought it to the show to highlight their Indigo Camping collection…hopefully coming to Union LA soon!

After a long hard day of work…finding new dope shit to make y’all look fly, it’s time to unwind and have a nice meal.  Let’s start off with white truffle soup with a green truffle pate.

Next.  Veal drizzled in a black truffle reduction…

Filet Mignon, with Truffle sauce…

Swordfish with…you guessed it.  Truffles…

Muscles in a…yep…truffle sauce…

and for dessert…gold plated, chocolate infused with…………wait for it……..wait for it…….TRUFFLES!

Oh…now you might be thinking Damn!  Epicure?  3 Michelin Star restaurant…Chris really does it up? Wrong!

…my staff Vic and Ryno made reservations for the two of them, without me for this spot…then gave me the bill.  WTF!? FUCK THOSE GUYS!

It’s ok…I had a great meal at this nice quaint Argentinian Steak spot.

check back in a few for day two…here’s a hint…there is a lot of snow coming and I don’t mean the kind the the Clipse likes…
