Welcome to the Mother ship

P1020911

After months of planning, waiting and damn right fantasising, I finally fulfilled one of my longstanding dreams of a return visit to jolly England, and set foot to the continent across the channel for the first time. On 31 March – 8 April, I and three other of my best mates went on holiday to London, Paris and Amsterdam. Fun would be an understatement... it was downright a joie de vivre voyage de la fantastique!

One of my main missions there, apart from enjoying the sights, sounds and smells, the cuisine, culture and club scene, is making a pilgrimage to Diesel stores in all three cities: Dieselfreak is finally home, baby. Talk about variety, I managed to set foot in both flagships in London, a shop-in-shop in Paris and a major downtown store in Amsterdam... and a bought several goodies along the way, of course ;p. This entry focuses specifically on my London escapades.

ps: special thanks to Yusof and Aidil for the covert (and by right illegal) pics, without them, everything i write in this entry are merely rumours, gossips and hearsay. Luv ya lots!

Congratulations for the new stuffs! :)
As I remember when I was in London a few years ago I was in this Diesel Store. But I didn't bought anyting. :( But next year in Birmingham I got a beautiful black Diesel bag, and the FFL fragrance. :) Nice memories! :)

Is the T-site from the fall preview, or still from the summer collection?
