This was Alexander Wang's first collection since being appointed Balenciaga's new creative director and wow did he IMPRESS. There is going to be some debate about whether it's too Aleander Wang-ish or not but let's leave that aside and just appreciate the beautiful and flaw-free show that Alexander put on today. Make sure you check out the rest of the collection!
With these pieces, I see the ropes are what make the outfit rather than the clothing. But, who's to say that this is not also fashion? I'm not sure what I think, all I know is that I like this concept and both the clothing and rope match together well. I belive that each set of looks are produced by a student or graduate of Central Saint Martins college, this set of which I believe was by Eilish Macintosh. I appreciate this persons concept. It's quite refreshing.
As any fashion lover would know, fashion week for Fall/Winter 13' started last week with New York City being the first to showcase the designers' work. I haven't posted any in regards to that because nothing really took my fancy. I really only ever look forward to Paris fashion week because my favourite designers showcase there. Eitherway, I still check up on the lastest collections and this time around, I'm posting some pieces that caught my eye from London fashion week. These are my favourite pieces by a label called Threeas four (which I've never heard of before today). Pieces were inspired by the astrological sign Ophiuchus, and each were named after a star sign. Be it a design house that it well known or one that isn't so much, respect is due when amazing pieces are designed and produced. Bravo indeed.
wearing: Rad by Rad Hourani top and pants, Rick Owens boots
Some of my clothes arn't appropriate for the Australian weather at the moment ((summer) but actually, it's probably even too hot in winter to wear this is Australia..) so often, I make outfit posts of my clothes indoors regardless of the season.
I bought this Rad by Rad Hourani outfit a while ago and have been meaning to post it sometime but never got a chance to until today. Being quite rare to come by Rad's pieces online, I was ecstatic when I had found some on an online store. I love the quality, colour, shape, style and materials used in the pieces. I really feel like many designer items are so worthy of their price tag. These pieces are a prime example.
I bought this T-shirt in the Yohji Yamamoto store on my Tokyo trip. There was so many things I wanted in the store *drool* and the mannequins had the cool long bi-coloured hair. The store its self, like many other designer stores in Tokyo, is set up beautifully. Spacious, minimal and filled with great clothing and shoes. Although I wish I could buy up everything that I lust over, my money gave me a reality slap to my face and told me to calm down and be realistic. I eventually stumbled upon this T-shirt and thought "wickedddddddd" as I recalled the bruised model faces from the SS13 collection. When I consulted money about whether I should buy the T-shirt, it said "being in your price range, you must". So I happily walked away with a fantastic T-shirt and my Yohji Yamamoto T-shirt and I lived happily ever after.
