Design Work,To Use Technologies Tastefully

Completely everething in this life depends on your intelegence, on your ability to think.

I  just love the Alexander Chen’s  idea about using a subway as a music instrument.

Maybe because I always have been fascinated by subway maps and maps generally. Every time before I’m going to go to some city , I make my “Design Guide”, drawings maps of the places worth to see. And than I ‘ve a feeling I know the city pretty well, even sometimes I stay only for a couple of days.

If you noticed, Léa is wearing almost the same shoes:

I love that Prada use hers own old collections for  the new product styling. Actually  the whole A/W 2013 is about this way of styling. Many candies there!

Design Work, The Phoebe Files

One of Philo philosophies has been to subtly reinvent a core group of pieces each season/ the kind of wardrobe staples that she wears herself. “There’s a classsicism and beauty to it, ” she says- ” Why change it?”

All the houses that still have their integrity and stands for codes have that way of working, “ she adds. “The idea of fast fashion, and everething always having to be new, can lead to nothing other than a whole load of confusion. I don’t feel a need for that in the way I dress- and I think lots of other women feel the same way.”

She had an interview with LVMH Fashion’s president Pierre-Yves Roussel about establishing her own -named brand, but instead of it she’s got Celine. The Phoebe Files in Vogue March 2013

Design Question, Will Hedi Slimane Make It?

I was very sceptical to the first, and the second collection that Hedi Slimane did for Saint Laurent.

The first was too simple in my opinion, but the second one just didn’t make any sense at all.

Today, when Nikola Formicetti posted  a picture on  on Tumblr  that Marilin Manson stars in Saint Laurent ads, I decided to have another look at Saint Laurent summer collection.

I have to admit that shoes are good.

I would say: they are just perfect.  The best shoe collection this spring.

They are just amazingly Yves Saint Laurant and Hedi Slimane at the same time.

I’m not not sure, but I think he’ll make it. He’ll build a very intresting and strong brand. And it won’t be a  mainstream one.
