Dries van Noten Spring/Summer 2011

Unfortunately too save. Too harmonious. Too tone in tone. Where did the risk-taking go, where the deeply admired Dries clash? Did he surrender himself to pastels? But maybe this has been his manoeuvre. Killing us softly.

Playground Love

All clothes MTWTFSS

Rude boys have a tender heart. Bomber jacket, bondage jeans, steel-toed leather boots - as hard the outer layers appear, as insistent the garments reflect a dispiteous character, they still can't cover the fact that their wearer cries at night.

Topman Design Spring/Summer 2011

I fell in love with the Topman boy. We went camping together, roasted marshmallows over an open fire and washed our dirty clothes in a river nearby. Sometimes I wasn't quite sure if he was actually wearing shorts or a skirt.

New Blood

Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2004

It's a shame the Miu Miu menswear line doesn't exist anymore. Reason enough to wallow in memories and acquire a piece or two for one's very own fashion archive. I am more than willing to do so.

Not In Fashion

Photos MMK

Jürgen Teller photographing a photographer while arranging his works in the exhibition space. I highly anticipate tonight's opening of Not In Fashion. A reflection on the smybiosis of photography and fashion - including the oeuvre of houses such as Maison Martin Margiela, Comme des Garcons or Helmut Lang.

Prada Spring/Summer 2011

The ugly beautiful amazingness of Miuccia Prada. Hourglass silhouettes. Minimalism charged with tackiness. Striped fox tail stoles. Op-art sombrero hats. Lonely island iconography. Too much to handle, so much to love.

Lanvin Fall/Winter 2010

The dangerous thing about fashion is that once you have satisfied one desire, the next one appears. There is no logic correlation, things just unconsciously manifest themselves in my mind. And now I want snakeskin boots.

The Farhi Sander Scandal

Nicole Farhi Spring/Summer 2011 vs. Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2010

Honestly, I am shocked. How could that happen? How can you copy a complete collection in such an obvious manner? As if no one has seen or will immediately remember the infamous Jil Sander SS10 collection? Welcome to the copy & paste society.

P.S.: For a similar case, see the post Persuasive Precedent.
