Into the Wild

Stella McCartney’s FW0910 ad campaign. Taking her love for nature a step forward; maybe the thick skulls will get it now! Go green!
Maybe when this ad campaign was being shot, Kate Moss was being shot near by next to the pond in dirty leathers and no bra for french Vogue.

Cannot say no to leather yet. Can say no to meat.Align Center

Baby’s on fire
Better throw her in the water
Photographers snip snap
Take your time she’s only burning

Alexander Wang Opening Ceremony

I had heard the coolest things about the retail store Opening Ceremony but had never checked their dot com. Alexander Wang who is one of the ‘hearted’ brands on Opening, made this incredible shirt in one of my favourite colors right now. This looks like the simple man’s shirt until you turn around and the back has a slit to show your non manly spine. I wish I was working at Opening ceremony and was buying this on employee discount *sigh.
This shirt’s movement reminds me of one of the old collection pieces of the emerging Indian designer – Sailex. If only he became the Vogue-ttes’ darling like Wang did. Maybe if companies like Opening Ceremony opened here.

Boo Hoo Bhaiyu

Today I introduced bhaiyu (my brother) to Oki-ni e-retail site. As he lives in Philly and has an avid collection of GQs (which I think is mostly for the Megan Foxes and Jessica Albas than style) I thought he would buy something for himself (and me!) off it. Good news – he loved the Raf Simons footwear (surprise surprise); Bad news – he declined my ‘wish list’ of Maison Martin incognito sunglasses.

His exact reply was:
“So.. you want to look like Paris Hilton or the Star Trek dude?”

hmm can not say I have stopped dreaming about them, but maybe I will stop planning the looks I can achieve with them.. sigh


FENDI Fall Winter 0910 sunglasses

Reminds me of the ‘incognito’ Maison Martin Margiela ones…but more Fendi.
The white and the red could be in the next X- Men film! Love love love
