This season Central Saint Martin gave us so much to look at, I don't even know where to begin. The Olympics, jersey wear, ninja patchwork, plastic, and moccasin moon boots... What's going on here?!
With fashion more like artwork and such an eclectic group of designers, there's a guaranteed favorite piece for every fashionista hidden somewhere within the line. All outfits containing fringed platforms were obviously personal favorites of mine, as well as the sweaters. However, there is a lot more to see than just that, so click peep more and check some more looks from the collection for yourself.
Blumarine AW 2012.. No words, well almost. This season is like Zenon meets J LO x's Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion and it is so good. Technicolor hoops, metallics and fur in all the right places, and the shoes, oh the shoes! My heart is melting from that two-piece fish scale RiRi suit and boots. Oh mah gaga. Two much appreciated thumbs up for Milan Fashion Week!
Alexander Wang has been bustin' out hits since 2007. However, this year brand decided to step up its campaigning game and picked zef rap-raver sensation Die Antwoord to represent the brands spring 2012 line. If you haven't spotted them by now, I have no other option but to believe you've been living under a rock because the ads are everywhere.
Check out the campaign and behind the scenes footage of Ninja and Yolandi Vi$$er in the videos posted below and experience the weirdness yourself. While your at it, brush up on some ear candy and look up I Fink Your Freaky by the two, and make sure to watch the video.
If you're a blog lover who is into fashion and sophistication in the girl world, there's a pretty good chance you've heard of Tavi Gevinson aka "Style Rookie". The 15 year old Chicago native (previously known for her quirky attitude and silver hair) has been on the blog scene since 2006. The fashion week frequenter since the age of 13, began her endeavors when she was just 11 years old. Since blowing up on the Web, the fashion mogul has been spotted on the sidelines of the hottest runways, rubbing elbows with fashions most respected names. She has also been featured in magazines like Pop, Teen Vogue, French Vogue, etc. Needless to say she's a badass whose maturity and whit has helped her to rise to the top. Recently she launched her own Web zine, RookieMag, which came as no surprise to her followers who would expect nothing less from the fashionista.
Her latest project is a part in a short film, written and directed by Jonah D. Ansell, titled "Cavader". In this 2D love story, Tavi plays alongside Christopher Lloyd and Academy Award winner, Kathy Bates, in the story of a cadaver who awakes to say his final goodbyes to the love of his life, or what once was. During the film, the well cultivated teen showcases yet another one of her talents as she covers Neil Young's 1972 hit, 'Heart of Gold', which was made possible after gaining approval from the singer himself. She refers to the film as "the least sappy but most tender love story", which in my opinion has somewhat of a zombie appeal. The 7 minute film is set to release and be available for download later this year, and I'd have to say, the suspense is killing me, no pun intended.
Just when you thought she'd done it all, Madonna busted out another one and this time it's better than ever. Her new single 'Give Me All Your Luvin' features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A, possibly one of the greatest collaborations in bad girl history. The girls are set to perform during tomorrow night's Superbowl halftime show. All I have to say is, football has never sounded so good.
A fashion masterpiece, IMG's FW/12 show package has been released and it is beyond amazing. Sent out to casting directors far and wide, the package acts as a catalogue of the agency's freshest faces looking to book shows across the seasons festivities. Spanning from Dali to Bosch, this art inspired look transcends the original and is a work of art in itself, literally.
