George Michael sang about it. The devoted preach about it. Sky-divers swear by it. What is faith and has it replaced patience as something to believe in? Perhaps I have the luxury of not worrying about it. My lucky runners, Golden Goose, bring me all the luck I need. They take me where I need to be. Where I shouldn’t be! And, all the places in between.
I know that the year has just started but what does the future hold? I have dreams but do I have a destiny? Is there a designer of all things going forward. Day after day. Faith, she says. You must have. Aixa does. She always knows what she wants. She knows how to make things happen for her. I think sometimes if I hold her close, some of that faith will rub off on me. Maybe that is why I borrowed her Acne Studios cashmere coat.
Italian designers are amazing. Like my grandfather, their tradition matters. History. MSGM is designed by Massimo Giorgetti. He lives in Milan and has only been making MSGM since 2009. I see this label called many things. Counterculture. Inspired by 90’s grunge. Something called Dada, and a bit of punk. I know it feels right so I wear it.
I am a champion in my Champion. Grounded. Ready, steady, set, go. Back to where it all began for me and my family. Italy. I am ‘Made in Italy’ and Aixa appreciates the real thing.
