Jean ‘Johnny’ Pigozzi is larger (than your) life.

Last Friday found us in the great company of recently turned fashion connoisseur Johnny Pigozzi and his very fabulous friends at his new store launch opening Limoland. A cursory look at the designer’s (yes Johnny boasted that he designed every shirt, belt buckle, shoe, and bag and even the coat hangers damn it!) motif in a nutshell describes the larger than (your life for sure) persona of Johnny Pigozzi- part growl, but mostly moxie wink. Johnny’s ensemble is loud, colorful, a smidgen naughty (well we think Johnny is very naughty frankly…oh dear) and frankly very well made. Just the way we like it thank you very much…

The evening began with an avalanche of photographers blinding us with their paparazzi cameras, blinding us mere mortal (journalists) as luminary after luminary came in and out of Johnny’s swank atelier to wish him well.
