Paris, museums and colour

Love this new photo shoot by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.. The styling is great, the colours and my favorite part Rachel Zimmerman’s pose on photo number 6. It all inspires me from beginning to end.

I’ve been meaning to post some of Natalia Brilli’s work for a while. Love her whole aesthetics and how she is able to apply leather to almost anything. From her bags, to her jewellery, to her rock band of skeletons everything looks super polished and cool.

Katie Eary graduated from the MA at the Royal Academy in 2008, this is the collection she just presented for Spring/Summer 2010. I find the pieces, textures and embellishment to be very interesting. The construction and deconstruction of the looks, the masses of accessories and the printed tights, (which I am not sure if are tights or painted legs) are just great pieces I would love to have.

Today in the morning I went to Collette to browse around and buy some magazines. After taking a look on the ground floor I went upstairs and on an acrylic transparent box there was this amazing Lanvin bracelet. It is one of the most gorgeous bracelets I have ever seen, it looks even better live than on photographs. Unfortunately the price is around 1200 euros, so I guess pictures will be all I have to look at this piece.

Great illustrations by Nacho Gill, I find this images really compelling, something makes me want to stare at them.

Packed my bags and moved to Paris

In Personal on September 26, 2009 at 9:07 pm

You have to excuse my lack of posts. I recently moved. Just three weeks ago I was packing my London life of the past 4 years into boxes. It was a very complicated task considering the amount of things I manage to accumulate over time. I arrived in London with little more than two suitcases and after 4 years I packed 46 boxes and let’s say they were not exactly small boxes. And where did I move to? Paris, I will be spending this next year in Paris, specializing in accessories at the IFM (Institute Fran├žais de la Mode). Between moving, starting this Postgraduate program and sorting out life in Paris I have had little time to research and post new material. I hope that now that I am installed I will be able to have more time to further and extend the blog. I will also try to document my life in Paris as well as the IFM projects.

Amazing Dutch label that shows their collections at Amsterdam Fashion Week. Their colour scheme, the pastels coordinated with the sorbet colours is delicious. I have never been a fan of bright colours, I usually dress a lot of black with splashes of colour here and there. These clothes make me wanna dress entirely in blue and cranberry and peach. They feel comfortable, easy and right.

Although the clothes in the Lanvin adds are great and I love the lighting of the shots I just can’t stop staring at the strange cats.
