Alberta Ferretti
Phillip Lim
Maison Martin Margiela

Hong Kong based retailer Lane Crawford collaborates with 12 leading fashion designers to create garments influenced by their notion of Olympia. The designers are: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alberta Ferretti, Alexander McQueen, Burberry Prorsum, Costume National, Emilio Pucci, Givenchy, Maison Martin Margiela, Neil Barrett, Rick Owens, Stella McCartney and Yves Saint Laurent.
My favorite is the one by Phillip Lim because it reminds me of ballet class (although it's a tennis dress:)
What do you like best?

I went to the "Big Blue Ball" exhibition at the Ludwig Forum Aachen a few weeks ago. This exhibition highlights the connection between art and fashion and shows some very imaginative creations from fashion students across Europe.

Yes, today I'll write about a guy's outfit for a change!
I guess I'm not the only one who loves the dandy-style, right? What can I say? This guy looks like the ultimate modern dandy! His shoes, bag and tie are great!

I got interested in the work of Motohiko Odani by seeing his dress made of wolf's fur (see first pic above). It's abhorrent yet fascinating at the same time.
He is famous for his installations and photography. Although alteration and mutation are characteristic for his work Odani's photos radiate a serene beauty which is hard to grasp.

Yes, it's that time again! Unfortunatley, I have almost no time for shopping at the moment but I peeked at notorious high end online shops like www.mytheresa.de and www.net-a-porter.com and found some very beautiful things on sale...but still to expensive I guess.

The Belgian artist and illustrator Jarno Kettunen tries to express the mood at the backstage of fashion shows through action drawings.
I think the implied sketchiness with its runs of colour add a careless attribute to his paintings which make them very interesting to look at. They seem to be vibrant yet apparitional and abstract, lacking details but their composition doesn't look random to me.
What do you think?
Thanks to Kristine for the link:)

Der belgische Künstler und Illustrator Jarno Kettunen fängt die Atmosphäre im Backstage-Bereich von Fashion Shows ein, indem er sie kreativ in seinen action paintings umsetzt.
Auf mich wirken die Zeichnungen durch ihre angedeutete Skizzenhaftigkeit und die unkontrolliert und nachlässig scheinenden Farbverläufe sehr interessant und dynamisch. Der Mix aus Chaos, dessen Anordnung nicht völlig willkürlich wirkt ist irgendwie faszinierend.
Oder was meint ihr?
Danke an Kristine für den Link;)

Such a cute and feminine dress! I especially love its layers, the structured tights and the colour of her shoes!

It's been a while since my last post about fashion-online-shops. But today I came across bonadrag. They sell beautiful clothes from independent designers and even some vintage stuff and they ship internationally! You can see my favorites in those pics above! Lovely!
