The most exciting thing about New York is the fashion so when I'm there I really go into my "style-spotting" mode. I want to see what the kids are wearing and what new shops have popped up, "Oh look there's Topshop!" or "Those girls are really tall and skinny, they must be models!" I'm also totally on the lookout for celebrities, and Prince Harry who was also in town.
I hadn't had any sightings until I was on my way to the airport. It was a glorious morning so the window was down as my cab drove along Spring street. I regretted not getting up early enough for a fancy breakfast at Balthazar and as I looked out at the bright red and yellow awning my eyes turned to a guy walking down the block swinging a gleaming black Hermes Birkin, it was Marc Jacobs! I didn't have time for a photo, and then I thought perhaps it wasn't him, wouldn't he be holding an LV or something from his own line? But then I found this picture and knew I was right. I'm sure he has quite a collection because today he was toting a black 35cm with gold hardware. Also, he was wearing jeans.
