sex, drugs and rock n' roll

balmain spring 2011 in paris: proof that christophe decarnin doesn't need a body-con dress to make a woman look fucking sexy.  leather and denim can do it on their own.

behind the scenes dreamworld

proenza schouler has been one of my favourite labels ever since they literally burst onto the scene when jack and lazaro won the first CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award almost immediately upon graduation from parsons.  the above are photographs tommy ton took of the duo prepping two days before their spring 2011 show in new york.  although i can only judge from a position that is very distant from their world, it really does seem that they love their work.  and it shows in their clothes, which are perhaps the most relevant and thrilling out there.

agyness deyn does the androgynous look better than most and still manages to look bangin'.

velvet underground

i have a bit of an obsession with the velvet underground right now.  the video is of the band rehearsing, filmed by the oh-so singular andy warhol and played against one of their best: "i'm waiting for the man".  expand and enjoy.

change of spots

i found a beautiful leopard print coat at a vintage store the other day and, stupidly, didn't buy it right away; when i went back to get it, it had already been sold and i've been kicking myself ever since.  especially when i see photos like this.  fucking fab.

colour me refreshed

the colour in fendi's spring 2011 show is to die for (bright lipstick has officially become a must).  too bad we're coming into fall right now.

keep it simple

you always hear about trying to look effortless, but that whole "trying" thing kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it? and so i give you: true effortlessness. in the end, a t-shirt and jeans win every time.

dark is the night

just fucking love this photograph (taken by the beautiful and talented hanneli mustaparta). (also, for my own reasons, love that daria's taller than both men, and they're still loving it.)
take me to new york fashion week NOW.


and it doesn't even have to be tight.
i only wish i could pull something like this off...i don't think my usual outings (to campus) are really conducive to this though.


and they say that today's models have no personality. liya kebeda, joan smalls and daisy lowe for i-D fall 2010.
