Back at the Apartment at Rue St Martin

After another long day of shows, then a late night of downloading and uploading photos, and little sleep ( yes BB, maybe you did not know this, but you snore when you are really tired ) I get the chance to talk to the girls back in Avalon, thank gawd for SkypeIMG_2136 Still in their winter school uniformIMG_2155 Bryan looking good , despite a very late night :-)


I tag along with Diane, to check out a Japanese label she's fond of_SYD8887 _SYD8892 woauw, what a face pull, like one of those typical french waiters look, when you ask for something that's not quite on the menu_SYD8896 But I'm glad I came along , as I'm in love with this shirt

Walter Van Beirendonck

now here's a change of ..erm..scenery_SYD8588
I was asking this , model, if they had any changes , or if it was just the one outfit, one outfit and a parade in Walter's undies came the reply, do you want to see them he asks, sure, why not_SYD8594
don't mind these actually ( the shoes, not the undies )_SYD8597 Fu@k this guy's like a giant_SYD8606 Nice ass pockets_SYD8621 hehehehe_SYD8626
the pictures of these guys/models_SYD8648 makes me think of a comment my dad just posted in one of my earlier posts, about the time when male models where men/manly and the current skinny feminine look. "when man looked like man"Well Dad, are these guys manly enough. Sorry just had to laugh :-)_SYD8637

A very happy Walter

The location for the show is on the 9th floor of the Insitute Du Monde Arab, and it has a terras next to the room where the show will take place, so I quickly duck out to check out the view_SYD8396 Great view, plus there is an Arab themes restaurant here as well, and a quick look at the menu tells me I should pop up here one evening_SYD8400 _SYD8404 _SYD8412 _SYD8415 _SYD8423 _SYD8424 _SYD8429 _SYD8431 _SYD8434 _SYD8437 M.J.

After the Argentinian love affair, we head to the HQ in Paris for Dunhill, where we are greeted by the ever so sweet and funny Kim Jones. Kim invited Diane up for a special preview before tomorrow's show. Click here to watch Diane's Video on her site ( I play model for about 2 seconds-I'm such a show off )IMG_2144

Kris Van Assche's Argentinian Boys Love Diane

After the show, Diane & I jumped on the Paris Metro, and on the same metro are half the models from Kris's show. And they all, one by one, wanted a picture with Diane, so I took a group shot of courseIMG_2140 Forgot his name, he's from Buenos Aires and a fan of ASVOFIMG_2141 Surrounded by spunky argentinians IMG_2142 I think Diane was a bit overwhelmed by all the love from these latin lovers :-)

How awesome is this location, was just a shame I could not run around the site with a few of the models to take some exclusive shots. This old disused swimming pool, now taking over by grafitti and tags is just el primo backdrop_SYD9362 _SYD9372 _SYD9378 _SYD9384 _SYD9390 _SYD9409 _SYD9427 _SYD9433 _SYD9440 _SYD9442 _SYD9454 _SYD9482 _SYD9483 _SYD9486 _SYD9505
