Fringe All Night Long Starring Sooyeon Lee

Filmmaker and photographer, Matthew Donaldson teamed up with former model now Korean table tennis champion,  Sooyeon Lee to create this slow-mo movie paying homage to the sport.  Stylist Katie Shillingford and designer Geraldine Chevrolet helped create fringed tights, gloves and a hat, to accompany pieces from Christopher Kane, Mark Fast, Jil Sander and Versace featured in the video.

Now I’ve played the sport and won several times in the past, but next time I should have something with fringe details close by.  All that fabric moving around while hitting the ball would be perfect distractions helping to beat my opponent.

Little Girl Blue.

For the last two years, the color blue in all it’s shades and glory, has been the color that ruled us all in one form or the other. It’s one color that works all year round, unlike a canary yellow dress for winter or a head-to-toe dark grey outfit for summer.  The cycle of fashion only allows one color forever (black) and every other to have its five minutes of fame, but somehow blue has managed to stay on for fifteen minutes, and will add another five minutes of spotlight time with some great pieces we’ll be drooling over come F/W’12.

Little Girl Blue come make your stand,

The yellows are too bright the grey too bland.

For which shade of blue shall she wear,

It does not matter,  for they all will make others stare.
