Valencia Fashion Week: Day 2

Visited Francis Montesino’s studio and shop this morning. Stopped for coffee and fresh “zumo de naranja” (seriously, why dont we have those machines anywhere in dallas?!) in a small outdoor/indoor market. Strolled by some shops and stumbled upon Mala Malisima (pictured here), a store stocked with great pieces by Marc Jacobs, Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler, DVF, & Alaia. They were having a 70% off sale…unfortunately I didn’t find much in my size. Met with Spanish shoe manufacturer (they are all based in Alicante – about two hours from here) Lola Torres. Jackie and I went crazy for the leather gladiator wedges and flats. Great price-point but they haven’t figured out a way to break into the US market yet. You can find them in almost every other country (UK, Austrailia, Russia, Japan, & all over Europe). Let’s keep our fingers crossed that someone in Dallas will pick them up soon!
