For the past three days, I’ve been walking around Venice in rain and shine and sometimes a pair of Converse One-Stars as I soak in the 55th Venice Biennale: The Encyclopedic Palace. The Arsenale, Giardini and collateral events have been amazing. And the people-watching has been fabulous. The rain hasn’t held back any fashion- if anything, it seemed to bring out the highest of heels. And even though the Biennale can be all about luxury (Sea Force One was docked and ready for partying), I bumped into Maurizio Cattelan on the vaporetto and Eva & Adele in the Arsenale, again just around town. No matter what, this year’s overall vibe is playful- in art and fashion. Updates and articles coming soon.
