those jeans

i’m just filing this away right here for when the time is right. our summer is still in full swing – so high waisted flared jeans worn with boots, socks, tucked in shirts, jerseys, coats and all the best things in the world aren’t an option right now. i look at these outifts the same way someone on a diet might look at a food blog.

SOS ASOS

asos has long been my favourite online shop because (a) they ship to south africa and (b) their prices are great … not to forget (c) their clothes are awesome.

givenchy s/s 2011 couture

leeloo dallas multi-pass! that’s the first thing i thought when i saw the givenchy spring couture collection. the design detail & tailoring is simply astounding.

One outfit required 2,000 hours of cutting and 4,000 hours of sewing. A single pair of trousers had 90 meters of plissé. On this scale, appreciation of the clothes as they solemnly rotated from hangers in a reverentially hushed salon on the Place Vendôme became an almost academic exercise, like examining works of art in a gallery.
