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.

Design Work, Guillaume Henry of Carven

OMG, he is so lovable!

And, yes, I buy Carven. Because you can buy it. Because it’s fresh. And fresh is not question of age, it’s a question of identity.

Design File,Quality of Isabel Marant Sneakers

Not so long ago I wrote a very complimentary post on Isabel Marant and her idea of the wedges  sneakers.

I still thing hight of her as a designers, but the bad quality of her stuff is just killing me. Today I accidentally had a look on the soles of my sneakers and discovered terrible holes after  just 2 month of wearing them. It’s really upsetting since  the prize of these sneakers in Norway is 3800 NOK  ( or 513 EUR). The price is just too hight for the quality Marant offers.
