south africans know and love missibaba. well. i remember when my friend had one specially made and we all oooh’d and aaa’h over it (still do). their new range for spring / summer 2010 is un-fucking-believable.
uuuuh…. wow. WOW. wow.
i really like the sessùn lookbook for spring/summer 2010. oh and the clothes too, of course.
i want to see pretty french girls smiling, not pouting. after all, they are pretty and wearing cool clothes. when you see some random person walking down the street and they’re full on smiling, doesn’t it make you smile too?
A.P.C.‘s new spring/summer 2010 lookbook: so french, so chic, so simple, so nice.
the menswear is also very nice (for the very fashionable male, would be a while before this look caught on in south africa beyond hipsters and gay guys… if ever):
bumper fashion special #25! the secret squirrel & ruby autumn/winter 2010 collections are so amazing, i almost can’t wait for colder weather.
you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here
