it's been a little while between posts and a lot's been going on.. since then i've celebrated my one year blogiversary, checked out the up late edition of the awe-inspiring valentino, retrospective with dj krush, partied in a safari suit at parklife, helped out on a hell yeah shoot, had a little encounter with cypress hill, experienced two of the worst hang overs of my life, and, most importantly, made the switch to wordpress.

you can now find my ramblings musings over at silk and floss.

mary katrantzou's london fashion week offering was crazy astonishing - definitely the most fresh and innovative collection i have seen in a good while (okay, viktor & rolf ss10 was pretty amazing).

while digital print is kind of suffocating the fashion world at the moment, this lass is one designer who's doing it right - she takes it to a whole new level and totally owns it. who else is doing hypersurrealistic (that's definitely a word) seventies architectural digest interior shots over sculpted silhouettes? noone. and there is definitely noone appropriating their prints like katrantzou - swathes of chiffon and oodles of fringing become curtains, pelmets adorn shoulders, bunches of flowers bloom on sleeve hems and there is also a very literal interpretation of a lampshade as a skirt. even the neckpieces were in on the act, forming chandeliers for the dream-like scenes. the shoes were a bit of a let down, but i think we can let that slide..

karla spetic's ss10/11 collection 'centre' has just dropped.

it was love at first sight when i saw the pics from her rafw show but the lookbook flicks have got me going gaga. there is nothing better than photography that is simple, clean and effective; and these images portray perfectly the static desolation and loneliness of the vast australian outback that inspired this collection.

wish i could get all these pieces into my wardrobe:

i just saw the footage from the proenza schouler fw 2010/11 womenswear show and i am completely besotted. although the weather right now has filled my mind with thoughts of floaty day dresses, balmy summer nights and endless days on the beach, this video has got me pining for winter to come back (but only if i can have this entire collection in my wardrobe)..
