Rodarte SS11

I really love Rodarte, but unfortunately the SS11 collection disappointed me a lot! You know guys that I love when designers want to create something abnormal, something provocatative. Kate and Laura are always provocative in their collections, but you know, you don't want to look like a wooden panel, even if you want to be provocative.

Kate and Laura has taken their inspiration from the natural landscape of North California. Their color pallet is based on the natural landscape of North California. It is a lot of brown, white, black, yellow, blue, grey, gold and some shade of light khaki. I really adore the color pallet because of its contents of base colors.

If I describe the collection with six words, it would be 50% crap and 50% hotness! I mean who wants to look like a wooden floor panel? Tell me! It's like, "Hi, can you please walk on me?". And what I thought was really urrrgggghhh *ERROR*, were those two split dresses/top and skirt(?) with the wooden panel prints in dark brown. What were they thinking of? Please, no one, and now I mean exactly no one would wear that erhm what its really called.

On the other hand, the collection contained a lot of hot dresses with some kind of bohemian style. The draping is my favourite when it comes to Rodarte. I love how they drape the fabrics so it looks fabulous and almost like an Ancient Greek. The printing is flawless with some kind of blue porcelain prints. It makes the whole look like an expensive porcelain doll.

The shoes are to die for ... seriously! Especially the wedges! Love the massive wood and the flower prints. The shoes were definitely the highlight of the show!

The last three pieces are sent from above. That is pure, really pure love!

Fashion is all about inspiration, dreams, love and fantasy. But at the same time its all about what you would wear and not. You have to step forward and criticize what you don't like. You have to make a statement, give your opinoins. Bad or good, it doesn't matter! Just make your voice heard!

Marc Jacob SS 2011

(Source: Vogue.com)

I wish
that I someday meet Marcie and tell him how good and creative he is. I wish that I someday sit front-row at his shows while breathing in all creativity he puts in the collection. I wish that I someday can (this will probably never happen) critize his collection.

In a book, called Fashion-ology: An Introduction to Fashion Studies by Yuniya Kawamura, that I'm reading right now, I read that "now is nostalgia" and that quotation hit me when I saw Marcies SS 2011 collection. We're almost back in the seventies with a lot of colors - something who's very odd when it comes to Marcie.

As you can see, Marc is influenced by the seventies fashion and trends, with long dresses, hats, big sunglasses, big hair, and heavy make-up, cool prints and big fabric flowers as accessories. What I really love is that there is a that he has created a collection with all kind of clothes, there is dresses, jumpsuits, trenchcoats, coats, hats, pants, jackets, shorts, bikini, shortdresses, tops, skirts etc, and I love that. There are plenty of things to choose from the collection.

He has used a lot chiffong in this collection, alomst every single dress in that collection is made of chffong. But it's not odd to use chiffong on dresses when you want them to move perfectly.

His jumpsuits in this collection are to die for. It's pure love and my favorite one is the draped on with two pockets in pink. It's crazineess how beautiful it really is, and the fit is flawless!

But I most admit to you guys that my absolute favorite creation from this collection is the big pink trenchcoat with big flounces on the top of it that the model Hannah Holman is wearing. That's art for me, and I can sit and stare on it without getting bored. I can sit and analyze it until there's nothing to analyze anymore.

I'm born this way

In a dress by the beloved Alexander McQueen on the white carpet. The shoes is from McQueen as well, but from the SS2010 collection.
In a meat dress by Franc Fernandez, this dress started a lot of debates around the world.
Isn't she gorgeous? Beautiful? That's more of statements and not questions! She's good, really good and that's why I love this fu**ing woman! I love her because of her music, her personality, her Alejandro, her opinions, her avant-gardish style, her Alexander McQueen dresses and shoes, her insanity, etc...

Yesterdays VMAs was crazzzyyy as hell ... GaGa, Ms GaGa won 8 prices out of 13 nominations.
She won the price for:

-Video of the Year - "Bad Romance"
-Best Pop Video - "Bad Romance"
-Best Female Video - "Bad Romance"
-Best Collaboration - "Telephone" feat. Beyonce
-Best Dance Video - "Bad Romance"
-Best Choreography - "Bad Romance"
-Best Direction - "Bad Romance"
-Best Editing - "Bad Romance"

Gaga announced the title of her new album, and it's called "Born this way" which is a great title for Gaga because of her personality, her gaysupport and her opinions about being yourself no matter what.

She also appeared at Ellen Degeneres show after the VMAs dressed in the meat dress again talking about her work, the meatdress and the new cause that Lady Gaga is fighting for ... to break the injustice in the military. Gaypeople have no rights to be in the military because of their sexuality in America, and that's what Gaga is fighting for right now. She believes in equality and justice! What a woman ha? Yeah, I've meet her!

New York Fashion Week SS2011

I have totally forgot to tell you guys that NY Fashion Week has already begun. Actually, today is the third day for NYFW and many designers, as Richie Rich, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Christian Siriano etc, has already shown their collections. So far I'm pretty happy with what they have come up with and that's a good sign for SS season. Marc Jacob (one of my favourit designer *gaah*) is showing on Monday and Rodarte on Thursday. The team or should I say sisters behind Rodarte has great story about how their brand made it to top of the designermountain. When I read the story, I fell in love with Laura and Kate Mulleavy. I really love the brand Rodarte, it's always so fierce! There is five days left of NYFW, but I'm looking forward for Paris Fashion Week and one good reason for that is the Alexander McQueen show. I can't barely wait!!!!! I'm curious to know what Sarah Burton comes up with for SS2011.

H&M + Lanvin = True love

I apologise for my abcense here, but these days has been very busy with work and studies. Yeah, I'm actually studying right now at Stockholms University. It's something I want to study and so far all I can say is that I love it! I have a huge pile of books on my desk right now ... it's very scary that we have to read so much, but at the same time, it's interesting.

I know that you all guys know about the new collaboration between H&M and Lanvin. This is gonna be huge and I'm just loving the fact that Alber Elbaz is going to design for the Swedish H&M! I love H&M and I love Lanvin, so it can't get any better than this! Hehe ...

I can't wait to see the pieces Alber designs. But what scares me is that it can just fall flat or it can be gorgeous as hell! You can guess who's gonna shop till he drops in november?!?! *not me*!

I have to sleep right now, see ya tomorrow bitches!
