“Ospiti, ma quali ospiti?” – The Nightfox, Ocean’s 12.
Vincent Cassel plays Eurotrash playboy with nothing better to do but Thomas Crown hard, every day. I love watching Ocean’s 12 just for his European cockiness that only decadence can afford. James Bond type.
Danny Ocean visits the Nightfox a few times in the film at his gargantuan villa in Lake Como. The location exists in real life. The 15th century Villa Erba, once vacation home of Luchino Visconti, has made my ‘Eurotrash Places’ list. If Europe is any better than North America for one thing, it’s the prevalence of villas. No Malibu estate comes close. No real housewife of Jersey can beat a Duchess. Private vineyards that have been around for centuries – you can’t put a price on antiquity.
Every now and then, I grace my readers with a poorly taken photograph from instagram using my iPhone. We can’t all be Leandra Medine! So, here’s what I wore just last week on a casual Friday evening in Yorkville – not my favourite place but hey, it was hot enough to stand the usual douche-bag protocol one must adopt if you want to fit in. Nothing is more douchey than freshly shaven legs and a pair of clogs. It says, “I’d rather be in the Riviera than be within 50-feet of your garlic breath.”
Thursday night at the Urbanspace Gallery, Tarek Al-azbat revealed his latest collection for his handbag company, NELLA BELLA. There was Appleton Rum aplenty, smiling faces and most importantly, gush-worthy handbags. Fall offers both a spin on the classics like the best seller, London bag, and a brand new vintage-inspired collection designed by their 16 year old teen designer, Andreas Kyriakos. My favourites were the bright nylon duffles and totes with smooth camel faux leather trimmings and of course, the Nu Mirage two-toned handbags. An updated colour-blocking, Tarek used interesting colour combinations like ox blood red with deep burgundy accents to achieve a look that’s fresh, desirable and totally fashionable.
