The Art of Valentino

sometimes i like to imagine that Valentino create collections just for me. i picture the entire creative team sitting in their studio in Milan, saying – “you know, Diana hasn’t done a colour comparison in a while – things are looking a bit bleak over there. should we give her…

Tomas Maier on paper

i really like the new resort 2015 collection by Tomas Maier, and so i began cutting and pasting the different looks – as i would with any inspiration board – and this is how they came out. runway images courtesy of Style.com. please click on the artists’ names for the source. artwork: Carl…

Tata Naka x Matisse

i LOVE Matisse. see evidence of my massive adoration for him here. so when i saw this exceptional Matisse inspired AW 14/15 pre-collection by talented twin sister design duo Tata Naka, i could not help but do a mash up.

Delpozo Spring 2014

when i saw the Delpozo Spring 2014 collection i had two thoughts: (1) WOW and (2) this is crying out for a comparison series. before i delved into my little project, though, i looked through every piece on Style.com. what a collection. and upon reading more about it, saw that…

Mara & Maria

i had a bit of a scare this weekend, the blog was down for more almost two days and i didn’t know how to fix it. it’s terrible feeling so helpless, but above all i was really worried that three years of fun and radness was going to disappear forever…

Matisse & Me

“I wouldn’t mind turning into a vermilion goldfish.” – Henri Matisse my top 10 lists are always changing – top 10 bands i want to see live (daft punk & arcade fire are usually in there), top 10 hottie actors (hello jon hamm, hello javier bardem), top 10 foods i…

Into the Jungle

let me explain to you how this usually goes. i start browsing through my trusted roll of street style blogs, opening my favourite looks in new tabs, then i usually have a gander at bukowski’s to see what new art they have on their books (the internet isn’t fun if…

Valentino Fall Couture 2011

what i find pretty strange is that i’m often labelled as a fashion blogger – something i have never called myself. i don’t pretend to know anything about fashion, my knowledge of what goes on in the industry is on par with any other girl (or guy) that occasionally buys vogue or…

suno & vallotton

i was happily browsing the fall 2011 suno collection, all the while thinking – “paintings. just like paintings. the colour. the patterns. aaah, paintings.” (tricky translating my thoughts, but that was the jist of it) and then i read the review, There aren’t many designers willing to admit to being inspired by…

art on the streets

i decided to do another one of these because (a) i love them (b) other people love them and (c) do i need another reason? oh, i haven’t posted any art in a while. my favourite thing. that’s c. citizen couture / edgar degas altamira / annie french citizen couture…
