It rained when I arrived at the Javits Center, and it rained when I left. It rained all seven and a half hours in between as well. You’d think that that would be the perfect trade show weather, but it actually was the perfect ‘I went out for 2 days straight to every party imaginable so I’m just gonna camp on my couch in my pajamas and watch an entire season of ‘The Office’’-weather. And I assume that’s what most people did, as ICFF was merely half the busy buzz it was yesterday. Even SoHo was gray, cold and desolately empty when the cab spit us out at the corner of Broome and Greene for another round of drinks and showroom luster. Gone was the jazzy swing of the night before, and instead of heading to the rooftop of the Gansevoort for yet another NY design week party, we called it a night after the first event instead… so I got home at the reasonable hour 9.15pm nowadays is.
A hot shower to warm the cold shivers later, I’m sitting in my couch, ready to curl up under a blanket and watch Game of Thrones… and prepare for another day of trading and partying ahead.
And hopefully summer.
