holy shit, a brass knuckle clutch!?!
ive seen that on stick shifts in cars, wonder if he got inspired by a ride in a ' 42 ford...heh

i really like the little black dress, with the overstuffed lining. that look could easily go wrong, but considering the designer thats a very understated design.
;)
perfect.

the peacock dress is a masterpiece...
i mean, try and unintrusively, subtlety, tastefully incorporate some peacocks as the essential frame of the dress!

love, love, love McQueen. excellent picks, Ms. ocean. <3

love this thread, too!!! good thinkin' Lincoln. :)

as impossible as they look to walk in, his famed armadillo shoes are like sculptures for your feet.



i used to love Proenza Schouler but i'm not so into their 2010-2011 lines. i really, really love their stitched bustiers.



though these shoes from Spring 2009 are simply amazing; i'm a sucker for contrast and a mix of pastels and brights.



although most known for brazillian swimwear, Rosa Cha is a line i like a lot too.





Zac Posen - who i love equally to Proenza Schouler... which is a lot.







oh, and Preen! this line is beautiful; everything is so beautifully constructed.

thanks
:D

uhg, i was just looking at the weather in SA, or CapeTown specifically, wishing i was there...!


those shoes are amazing, ive seen then in a different color, unless someone else used that heel design, but i doubt it.
goddamn if i had $$$, my wife would have a serious wardrobe, from a fashion obsessed husband!

menswear, lol, t shirt, jeans, nice watch & shoes.
or
the same old boring suits, i guess she would be my most shiny accessory.

^ Hehe, my pleasure! The weather here is beautiful, but right now I am in a very cold and rainy area - not so nice again...

Yeah, I wouldn't like to be male in today's fashion world, girls' clothes blow my mind!

ohh there are more!
i swears.

i only saw the top pic first, and thought "thats just garment bags, and muslin.
thats a great picture, ive only seen a few of her, in her later years,, she seems to always wear that unamused, in thought stare, she was a seriously gifted women.
the most inspiring for me, in a realistic way, besides Chado and especially his Weightless, Suspension, Worm Hole stitching and intensely embroidered prints.

i could go on about her... but that dress above is probably the only one like it...
she would only design for "dignitaries wifes/women"...
making the dresses, the client comes in, gets neekid, and then begins draping the material (jersey fabrics) and fitting, gathering inspiration, hand pleating, making a bundle $$$ and a one of a kind legendary dress to be studied or stashed in a museum.

man, if i was wealthy, if hunt down at least three if her pieces,,, and idk what after that.lol put them in a climate controlled glass case?

what about that dress i put as your desk top?
the b & w we guessed was purple of the marching lady.heheh

i cant, or haven't figured out how to drop and drag pics with my phone yet, but ive been waiting to make a massive of hers... ;)

the master.

^ good call on Vivienne. :D

Heatherette is anothe favorite. i love the funky, party-style and vibrant colors. i haven't heard much talk about them though in recent years so i'm not certain how they're doing but i think these guys are super cool.





how cute are these shoes?!

oh i like her stuff, the grey skirt the most... im boring haha
\a boot from Stella McCartney...
some of her stuff is awful, and when tries to go big, it seems to fail, with fabric choices and embellishments, if i may so haha. her addidas line sport-maryjanes are real cool.

this looks coo initially, but then poorly made cheap.

love those Stella boots, pip! i've always been really impressed by her. i especially like that she's vegan and she translates it into her line.

ocean - those shoes remind me of a warped Dorothy/Wizard of Oz ruby slippers. :)

Rodarte - i heard these boots took hours to get on!



love these candlewax platforms
