Versace World

There’s so much madness when you look at Versace’s older creations, this intensity is something I can see right away in works by other designers like Alaia or Raf Simons…I have two really old Versace books my mom got me during college filled with some of the most beautiful clothing, I was going through a [...]

This person kindly e-mailed me to introduce himself and to say he enjoyed reading my blog. Fortunately he also sent me a link to his work. Most of the time I won’t spend much time going through the website, unless of course you get sucked in and you realize you just spent 30 minutes of [...]

Evocative Imagery

kenny4

There were many images from the previous post that we meant to share, but couldn’t because then it’d drive you guys insane. We decided to separate the posts so we could share some evocative imagery that inspired us to create the previous design. There were so many forms we looked at before we went ahead [...]

Helmut Campaign

21

Ok, one thing.. I don’t like fashion campaigns. They seem way too saturated (in color) but also a bit outdated…they look cartoonish in my eyes, especially when the models are airbrushed so much. I don’t get why the marketing is the same, when I see a Cavalli ad I cringe a little and wonder..does someone [...]

(Outfit: Leather striped top from Luxirare, Leather pants from Luxirare, and model’s own black converses), photos by Julia Chesky Yesterday I prayed Jefimija wasn’t so thin that these leather pants would end up being too loose- it would look so weird to safety pin or clip anything, only had 1 sample that fit me pretty [...]

Helmut Lang

Untitled-2

Inspired by Helmut Lang (late 80′s to 90′s runways referenced below..I think) right now. Everything looks fresh, still. Nice little article by nytimes here. Loving: The leather trim on the mock neck shirt/turtleneck in the first picture The lack of accessories or purses The cigarette box/wristlet purse thing with the …

"research"

versace92

Most of you already know how much I love old Versace. I’ve posted about his designs a long while ago..There is nothing intellectual about his work, just genuinely gratuitous…in the best way possible. Far from Raf Simons’ work anyway (another designer I admire). I feel like Carla Bruni + Versace is the equivalent of …

Face Mask

isabel-toledo-mask

Image scanned from Isabel Toledo: Fashion from the Inside Out, can’t stress enough how great this book is, and that she is literally the modern day Vionnet. Though she’s completely out-shined by the male designer pack, after she dies (not for a long long time though) she’ll be a legend.
