So, here I am at a friend’s house, last on a wild rock right above the sea in front of Cannes and its fireworks festival and the island of Saint-Honorat, where "Iron Mask," the twin hidden brother of Louis XIV was jailed. Remember the movie with Leo DiCaprio? The house is full of my friend’s father’s paintings. He was a wonderful surrealist-abstract painter, and his canvases are mixed in with those of 17th-century Provence and Loewy Seventies furniture. If it sounds very "Wallpaper," well, excuse me!
Françoise and I are up and swimming by 7:30 a.m. and eating wonderful cuisine made by an old cook in the neighborhood. I’m working and reading all day long — everything that I had no time to do during the past year. I’m exhausted. I fly next week to Firenze, and my Emilio Pucci show is in late September. Hope we’ll see you there and that you had a gorgeous summer, too!
P.S. The cat sends a twinkle to Blaine!
Christian Lacroix, whose one-eyed cat loves Blaine Trump, is vacationing in the south of France with his sister, Françoise.
