The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

(I love this shot of the satin lace rib shirt by preen)

Humble and Haunting.
Graceful, buttoned-up,
tailored and supernatural.

No Cars No Go

I want one.the end.


Nude & Carefree

Ryan McGinley & Juergen Teller being one of my most favorite photographers at the moment. Both with a different distinctive style of capturing their pictures. Ryan with his sense of freedom in photos, care free and nude while Juergen has a sense of quirkiness to his pictures dealing with a more well known group of people. To me there's just no bold seriousness, its gives me that pleasant relaxed feeling.

Happily ever after?

This haunting surreal set of genius photography by Dina Goldstein.
The '...happily ever after' is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues. Wonderful indeed.

The boys wanna be her!

One of my favorite peaches music videos!! love the wicked hair pieces & her gap teeth!!


Quivering in the presence of Leonor

Leonor Scherrer is just one of those women who will basically make my head turn during a conversation with someone else. Time itself will take a moment in bask in her presence, she reminds me of a lecturer I spoke to during one of my university interviews. Leonor's shaved sides & wavy slicked back hair just gives me that nostalgic feeling. I love the intensity in her eyes and the way she potrays herself in photos. One things for sure, I wouldn't be able to breath if she ever came to see any of my collections.

(Riccardo Tisci & Leonor Scherrer)

Tisci's muse Mariacarla Boscono is the only model carrying over — joining her are Ranya Mordanova; Leonor Scherrer, daughter of retired couturier Jean-Louis Scherrer, who Tisci says he's "completely in love with . . . she represents France in all senses: the elegance, the aristocracy, the darkness of France"


Back to basics

Lately I've been quite slack with drawing, I don't know why but I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment since it's the holidays and of course semester two starts in 2 weeks. It all depends on whether I want to keep on studying or find a job. Anyways here are two drawings I finished yesterday and today. I'm not 100% confident with drawing especially adding shading & stuff which can get quite tedious. I think I'll do a drawing each day.

I'm at that stage where I can't decide whether to grow my hair or cut it shorter, I don't think I would cut it any shorter right now since I miss having semi long hair. I found some images on UK hairdresser to help me decide better.

The picture on the left is what my hair looked like until I cut it into a bowl again, the shaven bits are growing out slow so it looks akward but the top layers of my bowl cut hides it.


Bernhard is just one of those designers that blows my mind away, not so much in a good way kind of like wow what are you on when you come up with these designs?!. But he never ceases to amaze me with his signature designs, its almost quirky and playful with a hint of comicality and the same goes for Walter Van Beirendonck & Henrik Vibskov. I haven't been a fan of Bernhard for very long, I only came into realization when he designed the rainbow dress for Bjork during the making of her Volta album. In this collection he favors alot of camo and the use of the orange material which reminds me alot of the colour Buddhist monks use in their robes. He is by far one of the most experimental designers I've come come across. Hes doing his own thing and that's what it should be about.


Simian Epidemic

For some reason Christopher Kanes explosion T- shirts didn't wow me as much as his primate print T-shirts.
Possibly due to the reason of Ksubi who already came up with the mushroom cloud T-shirts earlier. Though I would like one of these wicked T-shirts, the colours are highly saturated being such a bold statement it'll definitely go with any pair of jeans! or even an unzipped leather jacket over it. I dont know about you but thats how I'd wear mine. Gimme the baboon thanx!


Unknown Geniuses

I came across these two items today on the net, having no idea who made them but tell me if you do.

Especially the shoes cause they look wicked!
