Valentino for GAP


There are few reasons to sleep on a London pavement in November .

To roll out the bed down outside Gap's flagship store in Oxford Street on Friday 4th Nov night to be first in line for the arrival of Valentino's capsule collection on Saturday. The chance to invest in limited-edition Valentino at high-street prices doesn't come often, but Valentino has created a collection to celebrate the arrival of Gap in Italy.

Oh how i wish i was in London now.....*sigh*

Latest Lust: Chanel


I fell in love with this bag from the Fall-Winter 2010/11 Chanel collection.
I love the black paint dodge effect in the bottom, its a pop of new to the classic chanel bags but still in black n white, essentially chanel.
Although I think I would've preferred it if it was the other way round, a black bag with white paint....
What do u think?

Green Porno

This is Isabella Rossellini's series of little videos made for The Sundance Channel.
Its a bizarre and hilarious look at sex in the natural world as she explores the mating habits different animals out there.
Its creepy & delightful at the same time.
I loved them all!:)

Galaxy Galore

This fabulous collection is by Setareh Mohtarez. A graduate from Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Mohtarez seeks inspiration from the vast and infinite space system. Her designs, each one resembling a snapshot of the star-spangled galaxy, architecturally molded into a garment. It’s coincidental that the designer’s name is Setareh (which is an Iranian name) actually means ‘star’ in farsi.

I completely LOVE these!! Each outfit looks like a little part of the night sky.Talk about making an entrance, or a statement, or knocking everyones shoes off!!

Once again WOW!

Bourjwah!


I attended the "Luxury for a Cause" Event last week at The Fairmont Nile City.
There were a couple of new emerging designers which i want to cover...
Heres my first one...

Bourjwah is a male clothing line created & designed by Moustafa Tonbol based in Toronto.
It is devoted to reinventing the image of the 1940’s and 1950’s vintage Parisian lifestyle. A line of luxury, the designs are exclusive as they are hand-made and created only in limited quantities. With only six new designs a season, Bourjwah is always current and fresh.
It is extremely refreshing to find someone creating a male fashion line. I personally loved the T-shirts with their vintage yet modern Parisian preppy chicness.
I got a volunteer to model my favorite T-shirt for me:)

Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin



While I was in Amsterdam in late August, I made sure to visit the FOAM Gallery. Its main Gallery staged a retrospective "Pretty Much Everything – photographs 1985-2010" featuring over 300 photographs spanning Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin’s 25 year career together.
Inez & Vinoodh are a Dutch couple who have been taking outstanding photographs since 1985.
Honestly Ive known just a little about them before going to FOAM, but little did i know that almost all the ad campaigns, editorials or magazine covers that have left an impact on me were by this duo.
From YSL, Cavalli, Versace, Herve Leger, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Gucci & Moschino to name a few to Bjork's new album cover, their bold & innovative approach is consistent. They have also created ground-breaking editorial shots for American, French, and Italian Vogue, V and many portraits forThe New York Times Magazine.
Check out some of my favorite works of theirs....
also check out the video of the duo talking about their work.
