lust box

fashioney things i would like (trying not to say WANT. don’t want to be a brat.) fashioney things i dream about? better.

these a detacher rankin booties – of the thousands of hits domahoka must get every day on this item i’m pretty sure 80% is from me just going back to look at them over and over.

tsumori chasato pour petit bateau – the prettiest little top i ever did see.

rachel comey is torturing me again with this blackjack blouse

and then there’s missibaba‘s new shoes (holy shit guys)

this comme des garçons wool yoke shirt – something a cowgirl would wear, no?

oh, and rachel comey is at it again. this time with a saddle bag. rachel!

the party

i will always love the party, mostly due to the fact that the phrase ‘birdie num num’ is a running joke in my family. second to peter sellers’ antics, the best thing about this film is the house where all the action goes down. as a kid i thought nothing was more glamorous than a house that had a water running through it (am i right?) … i still kind of think that! i also love the way sellers wanders around, completely out of place – i totally empathise with his party awkwardness… obviously the sixties vibe completely appeals to me as well. haven’t seen the party? do it.

graphic design for fashion

i haven’t bought a design book in a long, long time. the reason being that i find all the awesome i need on the internet… for free. BUT that is a bad attitude to have, and i have decided to keep my collection going and growing. hence the purchase of this book called Graphic Design for Fashion by Jay Hess and Simone Pasztorek

This visually led book contains a global selection of the best graphic design studios’ work within the fashion industry – from packaging and lookbooks to swing tags and invitations – with exclusive insights from both clients and designers. The book features not simply the visual identities of big budgets and luxury brands, but showcases the creative processes of the world’s leading design studios.
