I’m lucky that my cousin Keri found the Chanel bag I wanted in Guam. This is the hubby’s birthday gift to me.
I love the bag and I wish I could afford to buy all colours!! It’s so beautiful!!
Karl Lagerfeld is a genius—walang kokontra!
Last Friday I got invited to a meet and greet of Tokidoki creator Simone Legno (pronounced “see-moh-neh len-yo”) at SM City North Edsa’s The Block.
The Italian illustrator was in town for a few days. Among his stops were the Shang Palace at Makati Shangri-La, where he met selected members of the press, Ronac Art Center in Greenhills, Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery in Makati, and SM City North Edsa, which is holding a Tokidoki art exhibit at the Block Atrium until June 15, 2014.
Simone Legno had just started autographing/doodling when we arrived. Fans brought him everything from laptop sleeves to phone cases. Simone patiently drew on them, never complained. He never said, hey, I ain’t doing that.
A fan of cute things like me, Maxene Magalona had her catalogue autographed, as did her sister Saab.
It was my turn when it dawned upon me that Tokidoki has this collab with Karl Lagerfeld.

In fact Simone got to meet Mr. Lagerfeld in Paris to present his creation
Part of Karl Lagerfeld’s genius is his being able to remain relevant and keep up with what’s cool up to this day.
I have yet to see him smile 🙂
When it was my turn, I told Simone I had met him in 2008 at the original Secret Fresh store in Quezon City.
I asked him to sign my Tokidoki x Lesportsac bag, which I love.
Fast forward to the present: “I’m doing another collaboration with Lesportsac,” Simone told me.
“Cool, I can’t wait,” I said honestly.
Then I showed him my Chanel bag. “Could you please draw Karl Lagerfeld on it?” I asked.
Simone placed it on top of the stage and really took time to draw.
“Awww….I love you!” I said. He seemed pleased when he gave it back to me.
So sweet!! Phoemela Baranda loves it
Also spotted: Gaby dela Merced of Vinyl on Vinyl, who helped hook up Tokidoki with SM Supermalls
