i wanted an excuse to post these shoes as an extension of my previous miu miu post. as i was staring at them i kept wondering what they reminded me of, then it hit me! georges braque's birds, and yves saint laurent's interpretations of those birds in 1988. three of of my favorite people.
i cant get the muted colour palette from missoni's fall 2009 show out of my head. so much so that im thinking about changing my hair colour to muted blonde (a thought for another day). this was one of the top shows that season for me.. just wearable, luxiurious knits that were perfectly layered. my eyes have been on high alert for these colours in lighter materials for spring.. paired with my wood wedges and various other vintage inspired shoes. il serait parfait!
im just going to run with this fashion week theme. might be interesting to see these all lined up. lfw photographs of the charlotte olympia presentation by the lovely stephanie waknine for vogue brazil. the rest are here.
i hate to be such a shameless reblogger, it has been such a busy week! but there is a purpose to this post, and that is to inform you that if you have not been following garance doré's fashion week diary (or site in general) you must reconsider. she started in new york and is still going, much to my pleasure. her video clips from the shows, her interviews, and always entertaining personal experiences are the perfect living-vicariously-through-you summary.
left to right.. vogue paris (yes, a month late. im on the opposite side of the planet), elle macpherson bra in coco, timex watch, house of harlow earings, bois d'argent cologne, chanel particuliere polish, hr leopard scarf.
if you love contemporary art, you must see this movie. if you hate contemporary art, you must see this movie. it verryyy cleverly addresses all the comical and extreme aspects of the art world. its like a moving caricature. the actors are perfect, and marley sheltons wardrobe and loft is perfection. go. see. it.
this morning i decided to embrace some daydreaming and picked up french vogue instead of my usual school-induced reading. i read through the issue, and came to my horoscope which i quite liked and found particularly applicable to my life at present, even though its about a month old..i have never really related to the aries sign, and im right on the taurus border. lately ive been feeling more like a taurus, and it appears that vogue agrees.
vous étudiez des possibilités de changement depuis le début 2009 mais hésitez à les concrétiser. voilà qui est sage. en effet les circonstances, et votre pont de vue sur les éléments autrefois stables de votre vie, ont considérablement évolué. les imprévus actuels sont trop tentants pour être ignorés, dussent-ils largement transformer ce a quoi vous avez travaillé. ils représentent un progrès, meme s'il se manifeste sous une forme inédite. vous le comprendres avec le recul. sachant que l'inattendu s'annonce passionnant, explorez tout ce qui se présente. hmmm... paris, anyone? the wheels are turning again.
