The attitude is real. Slinking in the cool morning amongst a field of supercars is powerful. It feels amazing! To run my hand over the smooth curves of a Lamborghini or to lean against a Rolls Royce and adjust my Valentino cap, feels like something I could do every day.
Infiltrating the paparazzi was easy this morning. This Kappa reissue had tongues wagging – so old school but also so new school kewl. The rainbow colours in the Omini Logo is a message I can get behind, plus the symbol of equality for men and women is so now.
There is excitement and exhaust in the air. As the cars are arranged and polished before the doors open for the public. Each looking like a predator hunched down ready to pounce. This year a 70-year-old Porsche is ‘in the house’ and rumoured to be worth over $45M. I walked around it gently hoping to hear whispers of the adventures that it had enjoyed in its lifetime. What I heard I will never tell.
While we are down here scurrying around like ants, who knows who is up there watching us with curiosity. My favourite backpack this year is by far this Gucci UFO one. Filled with my camera gear, bottled water, and a pair of Blahnik’s (to switch up with these Vetements sock runners) – who knows when you will need to hit up the winner circle! My motto is like the Boy Scouts – always be prepared.
To find a ride that suits who you are inside and out is awesome. The Huracan is that car for me. Every time I encounter one I feel the attraction. It draws me in. As I melt into the seat and relax into the belly of this beautiful beast, I too can feel it in my gut. The power, the history, the dedication of the team that created it. Bravo!
