MMMforH&M

 

It has been confirmed that the French fashion House Maison Martin Margiela is one of the next designer collaborations for H&M. The collection will be sold in stores and online November 15th.

We are very happy to present MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA pieces with H&M, offering a new interpretation of our vision. The democracy of our fashion has always been at the centre of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.” MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

Denim6Ways

Printed denim is so on trend right now and it’s a must have in your summer wardrobe. Here are 6 unexpected ways to pair your printed pants.

 

1) STRIPES: Stripes always look great with prints and they add another element of sophistication and interest to an ensemble. 2) PRINT ON PRINT: Layered prints are so much fun and are my favorite way accessorize this summer.  3) PEPLUM TOP: Love the peplum top because it’s so lady like and flattering. Adding it to a patterned jean is so chic. 4) DENIM BUTTON DOWN: You can never go wrong with a denim button down, it’s the best basic in your closet and looks great paired with a busy print. 5) LEOPARD PRINT: I basically consider leopard print a neutral and pair it with absolutely everything. In this case, a full leopard print top would be too much so I chose a tee that used the print as an accent. 6) POP OF COLOR: Pop of color may be the most classic way to pair your denim. It’s when you choose a color from the print pattern and wear it on top.

Over the past weekend I had this great encounter with a San Franciscan. We had one of those conversations where our souls connected and we covered a plethora of topics but the most profound was our talk on art. We discussed the power of art and how it goes deeper than just the physical act of viewing a piece. Art is something you experience and feel within you. It evokes emotion and speaks to you. You may love or hate a work but a least  you felt something and next time ask yourself why you felt this way.

One quite riveting exhibition suggested to me by the San Franciscan was The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at the De Young museum in SF. The technology and hologramming on top of Gaultier’s parade of fashion through the ages makes this exhibit a MUST EXPERIENCE.

Here’s a sneak peak of the special exhibition going on now until August, 19 2012.

So I’ve basically been obsessed with these ultra encrusted floral shorts by Christopher Kane for J Brand ever since  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley whore them to this past Coachella. If you don’t recall here’s a little recap to jog your memory click here Anyway, after scouring the interweb to no avail, I couldn’t find these short shorts sold anywhere – so I took matters into my own hands. DIY’ing seemed the most sensible option, so with a little instruction and a whole lot of determination, I just did it. I got some basic instructions from P.S. I Made This but quickly deviated from their how-to, to create something more like the real Christopher Kane’s. The differences between their shorts and mine is that I hand painted my flowers and I glued ultra tiny rhinestones around the extra large rhinestones for that over-the-top embelished look. Now – will the the real Christopher Kane’s PLEAE STAND UP … here’s a look at the shorts coming down the Spring 2012 runway click here and  here

Happy Friday and Happy DIY’ing xx

ColorBlocked

Electric block colors are so fun right now and they are always hot for summer. The bold hues of the fuchsia, mint, emerald, and lime work well over a neutral white or black for a more sophisticated look. For the bolder more playful get up try layering on solid pieces each a    different color.
