Burgers + Bimbos

Burger Darabzine

GQ held its customary party in Milan amidst the hullabaloo of Men’s Fashion Week in the Italian nation that we all hold in such high regard—sartorially and culinarily speaking. With the interesting twist of events that are hard to shake, otherwise known as the economic crisis that is chomping on Europe’s behind, cynics of the fashion scene were quick to dismiss what is perhaps a wry, amusing take on the circumstances at hand.

Word on the Milanese streets is that most do not possess nor can afford that Italian sense of sprezzatura that Frida Giannini of Gucci seems to be exporting. Similarly, us Yanks have our knees deep in an economy that is floundering and a panicked realization that we do not make anything to sell the world. Yet GQ’s Jim Nelson seems to be onto something when his magazine decides to throw a burger barbecue amidst the Milanese palazzos.

Nelson’s recent food journal entry in New York Magazine’s Grub Street, has knighted him a fashionable foodie whose writing is as delicious as it is chic.

The party is a rather clever act of diplomacy, after all, the magazine’s July issue celebrates all that is American with Kate Upton on its cover, and fashion spreads that mark the summer season and our vast nation’s cultural expressions of it.

Happy independence day America.
