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 […]

Vivienne Tam FW 2013 04

  Never really noticed Vivienne Tam’s stuff before, but this is totally what would have been worn on Blade Runner if it had been directed by Wong Kar Wai.  Ok, the print is kinda weird (it’s Obama in sunglasses?  wtf?) but there’s some killer outfits for the hacker-with-an-office-job. [Ed. note – mentally erase the belt from every look] I SO hope this says something vulgar.  I really like how the character essentially forms a belt. […]

Lisa Shahno pink leather geometric dress

I have no idea how I came upon Russian designer Lisa Shahno, but I’m twitter-pated.  Like with Wipprecht she is able to create futuristic clothing that is aesthetically successful (ie. it looks good), interesting, unique, while maintaining a conceptually complicated theme throughout her collections.  These work as art installations, or you could see them on the streets of Harajuku, on Bjork or Florence Welch (maybe Ginnifer Goodwin if she’s feeling frisky), or at a more theatrical […]

See?  I’m not fucking crazy.  Though in all honesty the hiking boot truck model is probably the ugliest pair of shoes made by SWEAR Alternative. The following text and photos courtesy of Solestruck Blog. “A quick trek to Google-Image search (my go-to for stalking), let’s you know that the obsession with the 90’s inspired and Portugal based Swear Alternative is alive and well. What was once a powerhouse brand among club kids, techno heads, ravers and […]
