Can you believe it's been six months already? I can't. Pitti begins, again, on the 13th of January.
We've got a legit crew this time. I'm talking sandlot-gang status. @LA Guy (the jock), his wife (the girl who fights dirtier than the guys do), @unbelragazzo (the glasses kid), @GauchoSteph (the literature club president), and me (god help us all). Between the five of us, it is possible we will be able to take a properly-focused picture. I am praying that Fok brings a scooter (even better, several), so that I can take at least one picture of him doing a sick tailwhip off the Pitti wall.
In what is perhaps my finest moment, I have also recruited the inimitably voluminous Gracia Ventus of The Rosenrot; a woman whose wardrobe has almost singlehandedly spawned at least one (to my knowledge) multi-volume space opera involving insane techno-wizards; giant, time-shredding, warp-riding mechs; sword-wielding cyborg ninjas; and the baddest space-pirate queen ever known to clichéd literature. My plan is to follow her around and photobomb every single blogging attempt, then drag her to bars with @Leaves and José from La Portegna and see what happens. Oh, she'll also be offering her own take, both fashion-related and otherwise, on this latest festival of nonsense.
The lineup this year looks, to me, more enticing than it has in the previous two iterations. The full list can be found here - once again, chime in if there's anything you're especially interested in seeing or anyone you're particularly interested in hearing about, and we'll do what we can. I guess there's some sort of American thing going on this time, which probably means 60-ounce denim jorts or something. I'm looking forward to seeing what all the fuss behind Arpenteur is about, checking in with my favorite vendor, Jun #imouto, and seeing what Camoshita has brought to the table for the winter. My biggest fear? What if I see Wooster, go over to say hi, and get totally blown off? I don't think I could handle that.
So? What you guys want? More store visits? More denim? Interviews with randoms? More CM-style stuff? There has even been talk of video, but it turns out none of us know how to use our computers. Speak up now or forever REST IN PIECES
