Gareth Pugh Spring Summer 2011 01

  This is such a ridiculously perfect collection it hurts my eyes.  Just a little bit.  Technically superb, cohesive, a variety of pieces for men AND women, prints, metallics, fit to perfection, with structure, asymmetry AND draping.  Have to say though, between collections I’d like to see a wider variety of necklines from His Highness GP.  I mean lord knows I love an asymmetric breasted jacket more than your average bear, but I know there’s […]

Alexandra Verschueren Medium 10

Obv. I’ve developed quite an obsession with insane geometric/3D clothing.  Alessandra Verschueren graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium in 2009, along with working for Derek Lam and Proenza Schouler.  She followed up by winning the (what seems to be pretty prestigious) Grand Jury Prize at the Festival d’Hyeres in 2010 with this collection.  “Medium” she transforms fabric into paper through 3D architecture and orgimai folding, as well as by using […]

Absolutely 100% dying over this.  Looks like it was taken straight out of Aeon Flux (the Charlize Theron movie version anyway).  I need to make a list of designer pieces I want to DIY because $2,335 is just never happening. ANN DEMEULEMEESTER – Asymmetric Silk Cape Coat

Rave Culture: Party flyers

Syrous Hyperactive 1999 Daft Punk Josh Wink Sneak Toronto 4

Ok I’m not even going to attempt a history of the rave flyer (if someone wants to do one, I would LOVE to post it).  But, I would LOVE to see the flyer from your first rave (or electronic music event if it wasn’t a rave). Anticipating the return of Daft Punk, I went back and found the flyer from my first rave.  They headlined (DJ set only) with Josh Wink in 1999.  I believe […]
