i discovered a folder of images on my computer that i saved from the sartorialist ages ago, along with an incredibly huge folder of vintage design (i mean, what am i going to do with all of this?) considering how popular the last fashion + art post was (and how much i enjoyed doing it) i thought it would be fitting to smash some more together.
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
herewith bumper fashion special #22…
lauren moffat spring/summer 2010:
probably the perfect summer collection
marc by marc jacobs:
diane von furstenberg:
state of georgia:
stolen girlfriends club:
this is genevieve:
(step away from the wayfarers, people. we know you look cool in them, but let’s try something different)
he’s been in australia, so some summer coverage has slipped in
and for something slightly different, if you don’t follow café mode you really should – geraldine dormoy does an interesting series on the visual stylings in films she enjoys. her latest offering was american gigolo (which i haven’t seen because i don’t enjoy richard gere, but might have to rent now since it has the gorgeous lauren hutton in it). some stylish scenes….
bumper fashion special #17 – all the spring shows are starting to blur into one, will pick up with more ‘normal’ fashion specials next week!
moschino cheap & chic
after looking over my selections these past few weeks, i realised i will never tire of the cinched waist. i am also really intrigued by eley kishimoto’s african / asian / retro fabrics.
and some street style, there have been some fantastic looks the past few weeks…
been skimping on my bumper fashion special (#9) – apologies.
1st bumper fashion special. wee! exclamation!
