Marc Jacobs

I like all Marc jacob's collections but his latest really appeals even though I know in many ways it looks unwearable. I've already posted on it but cant help but want to share the current campaign for the collection. I've read criticism of this collection being over the top - unwearable by anyone but Helena Bonham Carter etc etc - but I just love the creativity/eccentricity.  I don't think Marc Jacob's expects anyone to actually go out dressed in character like in these photos but for me they inspire and delight way beyond just ideas about wardrobe. The pattern, the texture, the colour and the pushing the boundaries on proportion and wearable silhouettes. All that.

Love it all - and love the fact that yellow is still an obsession - you can celebrate yellow day with me again come June 18th!

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.

GUCCI in Auckland.

Walking up the main street of Auckland this summer I was not expecting to see each side of the road wall to wall with international luxury fashion brands. It's not that Auckland isn't fashionable — to the contrary the country is full of it's own authentic, edgy fashion and creativity (a friend puts this down to the cool temperatures and the crappy television) — it's just that this kind of distinctly European traditional luxury seemed a strange fit. Then a local explained that when the cruise liners dock in the harbour the first thing the tourists see coming off the ship are the bright glossy brands beckoning. Maybe some can afford the $3000 price tags for these dresses? Regardless I love Michel Alessandro and there was no keeping me out of GUCCI, getting to see his work live and in captivity. Clearly I was not their most hoped for customer but the Gucci staff were laid back and fun and allowed me to take these photos as well as giving me a catalogue — sealed in envelo…
