I’m really trying to break my bad habit of micro-blogging more than main blog-blogging! I posted this last night to my tumblr, but I’m re-posting it here:
Wouldn’t a re-imagining of this Vogue Gioiello (Vogue Accessories Italia) cover be so awesome with Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2010 collars!? Birdy, puppy, kitty, and lady-print collars! Someone get me on this job pronto.
Charvet Paris collars in Vogue Gioiello Gennaio/January 2010 cover by Inzaghi Dell’Oro; Miu Miu Spring 2010 collars via style.com
I, like many, am completely beside myself about this Miu Miu collection. I find myself constantly day-dreaming calculating how many pennies I would need to scrape up to buy just one dress or perhaps a pair of chunk kitty-print pumps… I’m planning a visit to Miu Miu this week just to see everything up close. I will be bringing along a voice of reason and likely leaving my credit card at home.
Prada Fantasy Lookbook Spring/Summer 2010 (via fashioncopious)
I don’t know the full story behind these Prada S/S 2010 images yet (i.e. who shot them/art directed), all I know is they rock. I may have to reinterpret the top image for myself somehow. SO Alice. Definitely my dream portrait.
Mercedes Helnwein for Lula, by Glynis Selina Arban, styled by Aya T. Kanai
So I thought about it and decided that while this entire shoot from Lula is stunning (as is their entire catalogue), this particular image is one of the most beautiful & striking images I saw all year. The colors are just perfect, the mood is right, and it was absolutely no surprise when I found out it was styled by my friend & brilliant stylist Aya T. Kanai. After falling for Mercedes Helnwein in her in all her redheaded glory, I decided to check out more of her artwork and – no shock here either – it was awesome. Her pencil drawings are like stills from a fashion-bent arthouse film that will make you swoon because… well, what’s not to like about a gorgeous redhead (I think I’m redhead fetish-status) with hot style and the talent to draw even more gorgeous girls with hot style? Exaaactly.
Hint magazine – Mind Trip via urbn
Hint magazine‘s interactive editorials are one of very few things I’ve found that, with a little tweaking, could potential outdo the buzz I get from a glossy. When I looked at this trippy editorial I was completely mesmerized by the use of fashion, art, design, and the web. Only wish there was a click-to-buy & full screen option, since I could totally get used to this.
