Possibly my three favorite colors: black, red and dark plum, that is with an exception to green, teals and seafoam.. Lol okay, well only in the fashion world is black really considered a color.
Some reviews called Ronson's collection a clearer look to her "edgier" style but what's prim about leather skirts, brilliant-red plackets w/ a sheer body and a funky badass turtleneck? Surely an A+ from me!
Straight out of the desert, fell in love w/ a Tao artist and came over to the motherland of New York City, or shall I say island. These dramatic yet insanely sexy and edgy pieces are to die for. This badass chick not only horses around, no pun intended, she's made for taking on any city street and it's nightlife. Nicholas K has done a beautiful job rendering soft silhouettes w/ structured and sharp-edged pieces to bring a little bit of everything to your wardrobe for this seasons Fall collection. Love!
I'm anxious and ubber excited about the Pre-Fall has to offer this season! Attention: MENSWEAR! These looks, and just to name a few, Burberry, Helmut Lang, Dsquared2, Derek Lam, Givenchy are to die for! As always, the flirty cropped pant w/ a fitted edgy blazer are always a must-have in any womans wardrobe. Not to mention my new corresponding designs inspired by the androgynous Patti Smith and the erotic Robert Mapplethorpe themselves (Designs to be updated shortly!). Although, lets not get ahead of ourselves, winter has barely past through (if 50 degrees can cut it) and Spring fashion is JUST around the corner! But stay tuned, fashion week has barely just begun..
..a love story and true bond between two friends that conquered the scandalous, chaotic and erotic city of New York in the 1970's together.. Patti Smith innocently depicted and brilliantly wrote about her relationship in her early years w/ the infamous photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. This fusion of rock and poetry, Just Kids, is such must read!!
Throughout the years, I have found myself constantly exploring a deeper appreciation in the philosophy and study of the self, sexual experience and the understanding and history of. Somehow directly related to my facinastion of the body illustrated through my art and design, this is truly a great find and read, The Use of Pleasure, Vol. 2 The History of Sexuality written by philosopher Michel Foucault. I highly recommend this book and series!
"It seemed that by starting from the modern era, and proceeding back through Christianity to antiquity, one would not be able to avoid raising a question that was at the same time very simple and very general: why is sexual conduct, why are the activities and pleasures that attach to it, an object of moral solicitude? Why this ethical concern - which, at certain times, in certain societies and groups, appears more important than the moral attention that is focused on other, likewise essential, areas of indiviual or collective life, such as alimentary behaviors or the fulfillment of civic duties?"
Out w/ ALLLLL the old and in with all the new!! 2012 brings new aspirations, dreams, friendships, and most importantly peace and ♥ ♥ ♥. And for all those who made any resolutions... don't let them fail you! If you need to do right by you, there's now better time then the present. Let this year be the end of one era and the beginning of your next!
PS: Loving me some Time Peace inspiration!
