Prada FW09 Lookbook

I just fell in love with Prada's Fall/Winter '09 lookbook! It is hauntingly beautiful and it really took my breath away. The images are not only mystical and mysterious, but they also showcase Prada's Fall '09 collection brilliantly, in a striking and artistic approach. It allows you to clearly see the richness of the fabrics, the gorgeous detailing, and the unique silhouettes. Have a look at the entire lookbook, including the men's collection, HERE.

Architectural Creations

I don't think I've done a post yet dedicated to one shoe designer, so this will be my first and I'm very glad to dedicate it to Raphael Young. I have just discovered this Korean-born designer but he has actually been working in the business for a while creating shoes for Yves Saint Laurent. In 2008 he launched his own brand of shoes and he takes pride in the high quality of his pieces. Young's shoes are architectural creations and as he explains they "require precise studying of the geometrics, balance and harmony in the volume and dimensions". I love the strength and power in his shoes, I think any woman would feel confident and in control if she just slipped these on. His last three collections are shown below and the latest one seems to have futuristic inspirations. I love this collection, it is so fierce, and I hate using that word but these shoes deserve it! They look like shoes fashionable robots or superheros from the future would wear! I think the black wedges are my favorite, they are so sleek and modern. To see more from Raphael Young check out his site HERE.

ADN de la Mode

I'm sure you have seen this amazing 64 page editorial from Vogue Paris around the blogosphere, but I couldn't resist posting my favorites! It features tons of models including Daria, Lily, Raquel, and Sasha, all dressed in the fall collections from almost every current designer. I think it's a really great editorial that showcases each designer's unique style through the use of styling, lighting, and of course the fantastic models. So here are my favorites of the bunch, but check all of them out HERE.

McQueen Resort 2010

My constant summer traveling and staying at places with no internet has caused me to miss out on my favorite designer's latest Resort collection! Thankfully I am now settled in Florida for about 2 weeks and finally have an internet connection. So at last I was able to lay my eyes on Alexander McQueen's 2010 Resort collection and I LOVED it! This is not much of a surprise to me because I basically love everything this man does. His latest pieces were inspired by art, which can definitely be seen in the Pollock-like paint splatters and geometric MC Escher prints. My favorite piece is definitely the first yellow & black dress, I think it's so stunning! The bodice fits so immaculately that it looks like a tattoo on her collar bone and arms. I also like how the sweetness of the yellow and the softness of the flowing skirt combines beautifully with the harsher, black tattoo-like print. This print is used later on in the collection on leggings, which I would love to own! I also like the cool, casual look of the paint-splattered pants outfit (those jeans would be a great DIY project!). Another thing I really like about this collection is how it's soft and feminine and at the same time strong and edgy; the contradiction really works here. Overall I think this is a strong collection for Resort as the pieces are much more wearable, but still maintain McQueen's unique and rebellious style.

ps. I really really really love this clutch from McQueen. I wear rings like that everyday so it would be a perfect clutch for me. This is definitely going on the dream list!

Cat Lady

If you know me you know I'm a cat person. I have already predicted that I will become that crazy 'cat lady' with a house full of felines and I can only hope that I will be able to do it as fashionably as Siri Tollerod in this fantastic Vogue Italia editorial shot by Miles Aldrdige!
