Connecting The Dots

The relationship between fashion and architecture is not a particularly oblique one. Both are based on structure, shape and prettying up basic necessities – clothes and shelter. The relationship between fashion and architects is less discussed. Yet even a glance at your garden-variety modern architect proves this is a group who are just as style-conscious as fashion designers.

He Called It A Costume

Real conversation:

M : So, where did you get your costume? (gesturing towards my clothes)
D : Your wife.
M : What?
D : Your wife gave it to me. This was hers.
M : But you did something to it, right?
D : Nope. This is as is.
M : ….

Apron Love

So I’m still stuck on that Orla Kiely yellow apron.

These amazing pictures are of a Chanel Runway for the 2009 spring and summer collection. The gorgeous white paper flower arrangements of roses, daisies, leaves, and petals decorated the massive columns and entryway staircase of the Cambon-Capucines Pavilion in Paris. They used 7000 handmade flowers and it took 4800 hours to put it all together. What a dramatic effect! On a smaller scale this could be a great way to decorate a dinning table or an entryway for a special occasion.










This makes the paper flowers on my window sill so pale in comparison =P

Tentacley Jewelry

Blame it on the recent Pirates of The Caribbean DVD marathon that we did, but boy do I want these! (Both from OctopusMe.)

octopus earrings

octopus ring

I think I’d like 2 rings, one on each hand.
I would name one of them Kraken, and the other one… Takoyaki 😀
It’s too bad I’m allergic to silver, now isn’t it?
