Behind the Muses4

BEHIND THE MUSES From W Magazine.

“The love affair between fashion and music has never been hotter. Photographer Max Vadukul captures 10 designers and the musicians who inspire them most.”

FLORENCE WELCH & FRIDA GIANNINI

“I was captivated by her eccentric style and her willingness to dare,” says Giannini, Gucci’s creative director, who designed Welch’s costumes for her current tour—and also took inspiration from her for the label’s fall 2011 collection. “She embodies the cinematic allure and seductive power that is its essence.”

DIPLO & ALEXANDER WANG

“When I was in the UK, everybody from Jamaica wore waistcoats,” explains Diplo, who coproduces an absurdist Jamaican dancehall project called Major Lazer. “That kind of craziness is what I like about him,” says Wang, who made Diplo the frontman in ads for his T men’s wear line this past spring.

YOKO ONO & PROENZA SCHOULER

“We’re really attracted to independent spirits, people who don’t follow trends,Yoko pretty much personifies that.” says Lazaro Hernandez (above, right), who designs Proenza Schouler with Jack McCollough.

GEORGE CRAIG & CHRISTOPHER BAILEY

“For me, George embodies the modern British look,” says Bailey, Burberry’s creative director, of the frontman of the British indie rock group One Night Only.

ESPERANZA SPALDING & FRANCISCO COSTA

“I admire her passion and confidence— she is truly a free spirit,” Costa says. Her ability to speak Costa’s native tongue has only added to his affection: “My favorite part of the shoot was singing together in Portuguese.”

JANELLE MONAE & KARL LAGERFELD

“We liked each other from the first second on,” says the designer. “Not just because of our style, but also the name: Janelle rhymes with Chanel, no?”

KANYE WEST & RODARTE

“I think it’s because he’s such a visual artist, mixing of art forms and genres, that’s something I respond to,” says Rodarte designers Kate (right) and Laura Mulleavy about Kanye West.

DONATELLA VERSACE & M.I.A.

“Her music and style seemed so fresh and innovative,” recalls Donatella Versace about M.I.A.

The Letters Of The Alphabet Have Something To Say About Spring.

About a month ago, I decided to challenge myself by create my own version of The Fashion Book, but mine would focus on my favorite things for the coming seasons of spring/summer 2011.   At first it seemed easy enough, since there were several items that started with the letters C, D, F and S in my memory bank.  The easy street changed pretty fast when letters G, O,Y and Z stalled me for days.  Would of been easy to  ask for help from friends, but this project I wanted to do on my own, for as long as it would take.  Even though this project took a couple of weeks to find something for each letter in the alphabet,  including images, writing tidbits and creating templates, I’m happy that I did it all by my lonesome.  Now, let’s see if I can do this again for Fall!

Just Asking For It. Clog Me.


Swedish Hasbeens Clogs

Can’t do it, can’t do it, cant do.  Getting on the  clog bandwagon has been a back and forth dilemma for almost a year now.  I like to stay ahead of the trends, and wearing clogs before the masses was my initial plan, but unfortunately the selection at the time would of done me more harm than good. Why should I put on plain black clogs?  The same black clogs that were in style almost a decade ago? Have we not evolved in our designing abilities?
Then Proenza Schouler proved me wrong, with their version of the clogs and I was back on along with everyone else it seemed..
