This Spring 2014 collection by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is incredible. I really love the mix of patterns, hand lettering and figure drawings on the garments. I am especially in love with the black and white long dress. His collection reminds me of an amazing jacket I came across at a vintage shop. I cannot remember the designer, but that particular jacket was a knock at Chanel’s iconic jacket. All the details were hand panted on the jacket, like the pockets, buttons and other details. I often think of that jacket and kick myself for not buying it.
I have been waiting for this issue to come out, because of this amazing spread of George Clooney covered in polka dots. I nearly fell on the floor when I saw these photos. I am a big fan of Yayoi Kusama’s artwork; I loved the collaboration she did with Louis Vuitton. Before I even knew about her collab with W Magazine I immediately knew it was her artwork covering Mr. Clooney. My only negative comment is, there should be more of those images! I am looking forward to flipping through this magazine when it comes to the office.
I am a big fan of motorcycles. I do not own one, and really have no desire to own one, but I sure do love ridding on the back of one. There’s just something sexy about a man and a motorcycle. I came across this great company Iron & Resin. They have some great classic, simple pieces for the moto rider. Plus I am a sucker for nicely designed companies. An even bigger plus, they also sell some surf items, which I am, also a big fan of.
Lately I have been gravitating towards more neutral colors in my wardrobe. Which is a little shocking because my closet is filled with bright colors. Maybe it is because fall is fast approaching. I am loving the mix of simple tee shirts with skirts and heals, I think that might be my fall uniform.
I have always loved sailboats; I think my love for them came from my Grandpa. He put together a beautiful sailboat model that my mom would sail when she was a kid. I have never been on a real sailboat, I am hoping sometime soon that will happen. In the meantime, I can always put together the perfect outfit for that future adventure.
Is it weird to say I cannot wait for fall? Red Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection makes me so happy. It seriously screams ME, I would wear every single piece in this collection. It has such a fairy tail feel, and I love the Hansel and Gretel paintings. I cannot get enough of the embroidered embellishments, and the playful silhouettes.
When I came across these images for Comme Des Garçons / Idoménée Book via trendland I instantly stopped everything so I could enjoy the amazing visuals. I love the mix of colors and cut-out shapes. I might have to snag this book.
Ok, how rad is this coat? When I came across this image on WWD I immediately had to research the designer Anissa Aouar. I love the concept “A Super Drunk Hero.” I love the editorial images of the collection, I am not a fan of cigarettes but the cigarette tiara and necklace are pretty amazing.
