Vogue Fashion Night Out: Firenze
I never much enjoyed Vogue’s Fashion Night Out back in London. It’s always spread somewhat thinly across the city with every little shop doing something and just a little bit too much posing for my liking. I mostly avoid it, save for one hazy evening spent in Moschino on Conduit Street – but only because they had some good cocktails and a friend was hosting.
As both me and my wife work in the fashion industry it was always too much like one was expected to go, and once there – over indulge and feel somewhat posed to death. So Firenze’s Fashion Night Out wasn’t exactly on my to do list (not that I have one) – but as it turned out – Fashion Night Out Firenze was a delight and the streets are an absolutely perfect fit for events like this.
Unfortunately, the drink was flowing, as usual, rather too freely – so we filled up on copius amounts of free Prossecco,
Gold cocktails served in pineapples (courtesy of the Fusion Restaurant & Bar), vodka and liquorice. Despite my wobbly hands I did manage to get one or two pictures – mostly whilst wondering between Via Tornabuoni, the bar at Fani Gioielli, a random collection of shops and Piazza della Signoria. I’ve added them below in regulatory black and white.
We stopped by Fusion Bar for their Fashion Night out themed cocktail… Though I couldn’t tell you what is particularily fashion-themed about a golden pineapple (pictured below) but it held a pretty good concoction of Gin, Kiwi, homemade lemongrass syrup and a few other things.
