fashion collection: Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008

So without much things to review on recently, I've decided to make a post on my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE FASHION COLLECTION. Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 is by far, the most exciting fashion collection I've laid my eyes on. When I first started off investigating on fashion when I was younger, I found this specific collection on style.com and thought it was very weird why such a prestige and classic brand would do a collection that is so jumbled and crazy. But that's the beauty of Marc Jacobs designs. As ya'll should know (if you don't, shame!) this collection was a collaboration between Mr. Jacobs and artist Richard Prince. You guys may have seen Richard Prince's series on nurses as well as his "After Dark" series. Well, those components became the main inspiration for the overall collection, as well as taking the color scheme from Spongebob Squarepants. How random is that right? So random that I love it. Well, everything, from coats, dresses, suits and bags, nothing was kept to the ordinary. Jackets were completely exposed in the back, bags are done in a spectrum of acid colors, suits were done in varying fabric choices, overall creating a very muddled collection, that worked. An organized chaos. 
The opening of the show featured 12 leading old-school supermodels, all dressed up as Richard Prince's nurses, complete with Louis Vuitton lace mask and nurse caps. From left: Stephanie Seymour, Eva Herzigova, Rianne Ten Haken, Anne Vyalitsyna, Carmen Kass, Natalia Vodianova, Angela Lindvall, Isabeli Fontana, Karolina Kurkova, Lara Stone, Nadja Auermann and Naomi Campbell.

magazine haul: November 6, 2010

Hey guys, this is going to be a short post about my haul from today. Firstly, happy Diwali! Since today was a holiday, I decided to go hang out at Orchard since I haven't gone there in the longest time, plus i needed to go to Kinokuniya for my magazines. Let me tell you, Orchard today was very packed with tourists and locals alike. The Kinokuniya wasn't any different, but alas, I had to persevere forward and got the magazines I needed. 
Overhead shot of my purchases, with Natasha Poly's French Vogue cover on top. Bought mostly december issues of the magazines, bringing in a close to a year's worth of collection. Though I'm not really feeling the cover, I'm quite disappointed that Natasha didn't get an accompanying editorial in this issue. But whatever..... SEE MY WHOLE PURCHASES AFTER LE JUMP.
