WHAT I LIVE FOR

I don't think I will ever be in love with fashion as much as I was in late 2006 and early 2007.  Maybe everything was more magic because I was younger, maybe it seems better because it's sentimental.. but the seasons surrounding that period of time will always be very special to me - especially Balenciaga.  Of course, Balenciaga.  I eat, sleep and breathe Ghesquiere.  Below is Coco Rocha in Balenciaga's S/S 07 ad campaign.  It's absolutely brilliant; she's a woman beamed down from a spaceship into the heart of suburbia.  At least that's how I've always seen it.  There's little more I want from an ad, or editorial even, than a clear view of beautiful, well styled looks with good photography and a fitting environment.

  2. I know exactly what you mean! I've pondered too, if maybe it's because I was younger and less exposed/numbed to beauty, but I really think fashion was just better back then. Actually, it was Givenchy Fall 2008 by Tisci that really made me fall in love :)

  4. i'm going to have to back all of this.

    Yes! OC! The $$$ made me throw up a bit, but they're runway so I couldn't resist. One of the exceptionally rare times in life I will break my never-pay-retail rule.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
