LE1F - SODA

The orange faux fur from my senior collection (see more of it HERE and HERE) was worn by Le1f in his newest music video.  Too sick for words!

Meadham Kirchhoff or "Made 'em Jerk off"?  Just musing here.

The faux furs from their F/W 12 collection (see my picks from the show here) are super cute.  Forget owning them, at around $7,000 the prices are much too high for anyone with a sense of humor.

IRL

At the beginning of the summer I lent some of the clothing from my senior collection to stylist Haley Wollens for a film Grant Singer was shooting with Sky Ferreira.  The trailer is out now, and you can catch a glimpse of my anime print long sleeve top and mini skirt at 00:53.  Very excited to see the entire film, it looks amazing regardless of my involvement!

As a label with such a rich history in fur and leather I am always excited to see the goods at Fendi each season.  For S/S 13 there were these amaaazing little color blocked cube clutches with fur cube charms attached.  There was a healthy helping of geometric/color blocked clutches and totes, and I'm also loving the new baguette covered in pegs.

edit:  Okay, I reeeeally didn't want to do any posts like this because I originally wanted to only post one photo the cube clutches (so in love!!), but it quickly turned into a mass bag post (there was a lot to love).  Now I feel like I have to do more for accessories from other shows... but we'll see.

I don't stalk style.com like I used to, but I have been skimming through the shows every few days.  Proenza Schouler was my favorite from NYFW... it's all about the depth to each garment and the details so I picked out close up shots.  And of course, the color story is as on point as ever - I honestly don't know how anyone can commit to a black wardrobe when there are designers like Jack and Lazaro.

Just saw this amazing editorial my friend Liz styled.  I didn't even realize until I went a few photos in that she used the anime skirt and cash print dress I made earlier this year and gave her.  The iridescent varsity jacket and the black cheersuit were both made by Liz (see more HERE) and you can see more of my work HERE.

Two things!  I got some cute new tees from Blood is The New Black (they'll definitely show up on my body soon), but reading through the fourth issue of their newspaper I read something that I had been struggling to put into words for some time now:

"...when proffering advice to the hoi polloi on how to achieve success, said bloggers tend to skip over necessities like a designer wardrobe, model-looks, and boyfriends with HD cameras in favor of the hollow edict just be yourself."

This came from a column on Elizabeth of White Lightning who I, and surely many others, have always appreciated for her independence and individuality.

Solestruck just got in some classic Buffalo platform sneakers.  Unfortunately, the tall black and white ones are only available in men's sizes.

You might have seen these before, but I wanted to make a post just for them.  These were the shoes I bought for my senior collection (which in the end I didn't really need).  The blue glitter sandals were originally black and white and the pink ones were originally red.  I thought I would save money if I bought shoes in the wrong color and covered them in glitter.  Well, it turned out to be more expensive and time consuming than I had imagined.  If you have masochistic tendencies and want to try this out for yourself you'll need spray adhesive, glitter, acrylic topcoat (absolutely essential - a thick layer of this will seal the glitter), and maybe acrylic paint pens if you're working on a shoe with an exposed innersole like on a sandal or slingback.  Pumps are definitely the easiest option.  Lastly, add some trashy printed tights to complete your trailer park cougar look - or to cover your leg hair!

Oh, and one of the models at my final crit was wearing the clear/flower sandals and totally busted her ass in them.  The heel slipped underneath her while she was walking and she flew down onto the ground into a spread eagle and the dress of mine she was wearing rode up above her hips.  It was mortifying (about thirty people were staring) but admittedly humorous.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
