Spongeblog / Blog Esponja

Yesteday I went to Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week, really just a cheap excuse to behave like Edina & Patsy in between shows in the Grey Goose-sponsered "kissing-room", where we coined the phrase "Spongeblog": write about fashion (optional) while drinking cocktails (necessary).

Di, Raquel, Lucio, Plutónico, Alejandra (on of the few actual buyers there) and myself were lather joined by ace76, amidst persistent rumors that the ever-mysterious Mr. Q was in the room (rumors fueled even further by Plutónico being mistaken, intentionally or not, for him). Kina Fernández's after-show cocktail was quite nice, it had violet liqueur and cranberry juice (a purple Cosmo, if you will), and another ingredient I can't remember. I should have kept the recipe, since it was hanging on the cute little paper tag around the stem of the glass... anyway.

I did see one show since I managed to wriggle into Ana Locking thanks to a lovely young lady who's name I have unfortunately forgotten (I have to ask Raquel, I'm a disaster with names). The show... well, the color combinations were appealing and there were some nice ideas, specially the evening dresses that could be good red carpet options for a young actress. Some of the day wear (specially the men's) I personally found a bit far-fetched and not that wearable, a lot of color block and asymmetrical panels and pleats, a little bit Ghesquière/Elbaz-esque perhaps... or maybe I'm being picky. I wasn't that picky with what we were awarded with after the show: a vodka-kahlua concoction in a tall glass... Hm, I wonder if I can get a blogger pass next season so I can make a serious post about the Madrid Fashion Week cocktails... oh, and about the shows, of course...


Ayer fui a la Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week, en realidad una excusa barata para comportarme com Edina & Patsy entre desfiles en el "kissing-room" patrocinado por Grey Goose, donde acuñamos la frase "Blog Esponja": escribir sobre moda (opcional) mientras se toman cócteles (necesario).

A Di, Raquel, Lucio, Plutónico, Alejandra (una de las pocas compradoras presentes) y un servidor se nos unió ace76, entre persistentes rumores que el siempre misterioso Mr. Q estaba en la sala (rumores alimentados aún más el confundirse, intencionadamente o no, a Plutónico con él). El cóctel post-desfile de Kina Fernández no estaba mal, llevaba licor de violetas y zumo de arándanos (un Cosmo morado, por decir algo), y otro ingrediente que no recuerdo. Debería haberme quedado con la receta, ya que estaba colgada en una mona etiqueta del pie de la copa... en todo caso.

Sí que vi un desfile, ya que conseguí colarme en Ana Locking gracias a una encantadora señorita, cuyo nombre desgraciadamente no recuerdo (le tendré que preguntar a Raquel, soy un desastre con los nombres). El desfile... bueno, las combinaciones de color eran atractivas y había algunas ideas bonitas, sobre todo los vestidos de noche que podrían ser una buena opción para la alfombra roja para una joven actriz. Personalmente encontré algo rebuscados y no muy fáciles de llevar algunos de los conjuntos de día (especialmente los de hombre), mucho color block y paneles y pliegues asimétricos, un poco Ghesquière/Elbaz-esco tal vez... o estoy siendo demasiado puntilloso. No fui tan puntilloso con lo que nos dieron después del desfile: una mezcla de vodka y kahlua en vaso alto... Hm, me pregunto si puedo conseguir acreditarme como bloguero la temporada que viene para hacer un post en serio sobre los cócteles de la Madrid Fashion Week... ah, y sobre los desfiles, claro...

Buen post y buen resumen del desfile de Ana, y que pena que por momentos lo mejor de Cibeles sea el espacio de GreyGoose!

Alegria said...

Very good post! I now wonder what the recipe was for that Cosmo! I wish I was there with you but the blog helps me share in your experience, thank you!

Por supuesto, ¿a qué esperas?, yo sígo el mundo de la MODA a través de tu blog, me encanta leer las tendencias que presentas y la forma en que lo explicas es sencillamente encantadora...los cocktails suenan raros pero muy vistosos. Un beso!!!

very nice Pilgrim, enjoyed that and yes, wish I could have been there with you, next time more cocktails please. You are such a good writer...

Di said...

Creo que yo guardé la receta. La busco y te la paso!

Creo que voy a empezar a convertirme en un asiduo de Cibeles aunque sea sólo para disfrutar de la compañía... y la posibilidad de descubrir nuevos cocktailes! Ropa? Ahí se vende ropa? :-)
