Kanye...you are a genius, simply beautiful.
Z spoke by Zac Posen Spring 2011
What can you say after this beautiful mess? Honestly I don't get, It doesn't tell me a story. But then again does it have too? All I can say is that the prints are exquisite and somehow took me back to my elementary classroom...stickers with random objects with big smiling faces. Fruits with faces, why not? By the way Z spoke is exclusive to Saks...in other words I work at the place thats sells this dope stuff. Yup, I'm proud.
Being in junior high in the early 90's where the most awkward times for me. I did'nt know if i should wear Doc's or Fila's, Plaid shirts or cropped neon tee's. Amongst the vast cliques and styles to be in...Angela Chase from my-so-called life made me see it wasn't necessary to choose one. I will forever love her for being who she was and not caring...even too dyeing her hair red (trademark). Angela Chase your character will forever be my muse. Here's a tribute to your awesomeness and being a great role model to us 13-ish girls everywhere back in the day.
If anyone knows me best, they can tell you I could live in a hoody everyday of my life. There's nothing more perfect than a dope hoody with an awesome print/design. Thanks to M.I.A I can live in a different one everyday. It's no surprise M.I.A made a progression towards clothes..besides her clothes look like her music. It's art, no matter what form, they all counter act one another. Dope clothes, dope music...let's go out and have a dope time.
I couldn't help but to post the latest leggings I've made. Even if it meant taking it with my phone, because my camera died (please excuse the quality). So, just see it as a sneak peak! I found this beautiful brocade like knit, and my obsession with leggings came back. I immediately thought about the Brocade Alexander McQueen brocade pants we got in at Saks, and thought this will be the street version of them, (well the "chicle de anya" version). Say hello to the new "Alex and Anya" leggings!
Roisin Murphy-Sow into you
Bjork will forever be my idol, but this lady is a close runners up. How can she not be more famous?! Her voice,style,music,attitude is so on point and ahead. Roisin Murphy, you are over the top and perfect. Please give us more amazing clothes and videos to obsess over, and those sweet dancing skills. enjoy.
yes yes yes!If I can be anywhere in the world right now,it would be in Camden town in London. Where the birth of Doc Marten's took place, where the punk scene is still alive and young. But for now, I'll have to re-live my trip through Balenciaga. As always, enjoy.
"chicle de anya" designed and made by me
So what do you do when you have amazing talented friends??!! ummm, photoshoots? yes. Whenever Aaron Baxter (photographer),and myself (designer, stylist)are both feeling inspired at the same time, this is the result. It's so beautiful how we come together and create this art where both so passionate about...there's no words...we just know when we did something amazing. It's this natural high, no drugs, no alcohol, just fashion...so awesome. Asia (model), you rocked it girl...yes people this girl is just as beautiful in the inside. When you get a dope group of people to work together, it's exactly that...together, on point.
Converse - "All Summer" - Music Video
If summer was still here, I would say this would be my anthem. In that case, it's my winter anthem. KId Cudi, Best Coast (amazingness),Rostam Batmanglij, did such an amazing collab for Converse...keep them coming guys. enjoy.
It's been a little more than half a year, and to think that Alexander Mcqueen took his life, is still a shock. A memorial service was held for him on Monday, Sept 20. Friends such as, Naomi Campbell, Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Bjork where attendees just to name a few. Bjork sung a Billie Holiday song called "Gloomy Sunday", and was wearing an angelic wood-like dress created by the designer. Before Lady Gaga and her many Mcqueen outfits, there was Mcqueen and Bjork. Bjork has worn Mcqueen since the mid 90's. The Homogenic cover album was designed by the late designer, and has worn numerous of his designs in concerts, and he also directed her music video to "Alarm Call". It's not often you get to experience two genius minds working together , but when you do, all you experience is beauty.
It's pretty simple. My everyday... chaos, disorder, and never a dull moment. The truth is we got some awesome children mannequins. Which of course is also my department, surprised? nope. Anyway, I was so excited, and like a dork I whipped out my camera phone and took pics of them. Then took pics of my desk and my collage of photos that inspire me. Welcome to my everyday...
This is by far my most favorite collection Muccia Prada, the Italian designer has produced. As I get older, I've notice my taste for clothing has gotten a little more sophisticated, but still cannot let go of the adolescent in me. This collection is the perfect mash-up between law school and kindergarten. The cuts and shapes are simply a throw back to (my most favorite fashion era) the 60's. I say if Edie Sedgwick where alive today she would be dressed head too toe in MIU MIU.
My friend and collegue, blogger "ev said" is moving to Brooklyn. We both went to Fashion design school together,and where even together graduation day.We often talked about how it was a dream for all of us including ashleigh (blogger " fried chicken & champagne")to one day move to NYC and rule the city. Eve heres your time, go out and represent "team dope" for the rest of us...much love.
The first time I fell in love with Anna Sui was about 10 years ago when I first discovered the art of Fashion. Thats what her clothes are...art. I love how her clothes are usually and always influenced by rock and roll. She has a bohemian chic that makes you want to listen to Lenny Kravitz and wish your mom saved her clothes from the 70's. (Thanks mammi for saving nothing!) So to make up for those forever lost treasures, us gals can look towards Anna Sui (without the moth balls).
Valentino Fall 2006
I recently watched " Basquiat - The Radiant Child" I am at a lost for words. The best documentary I've ever seen. Yes , I am partial to Basquait, but this film was simply amazing. He was a remarkable artist that will forever be apart of my art. Thank you for inspiring the generation of artist following you, including myself.
