so as we know, we have recently fallen in love Yosef Perez
fact: they are an unbelievably moving clothing label based out of Tel Aviv featuring incredible prints, textures and gorgeous silhouettes
fact: believe it or not you can find them on etsy (altho who knows for how long)
fact: adam got me a a pair of their leggings for my birthday
fact: i really want them to get here.
anywho, as we also know, Adam was amazing and started a conversation with Yosef Perez which crescendoed in a really incredible letter wishing me and my line all of the best. phenom.
now i’ve been chatting with them, and they’ve sent me a bunch of info n images about their latest collection and i absolutely love it all! it is much darker, somewhat goth-y, but still with a playful sensibility and a ton of opulence.
“Intrigues of the 1920s “Twenty Panky
“The inspiration for the “Twenty Panky” collection originated from the 1929 silent surrealist short film “Un Chien Andalou” by the Spanish director Luis Bunuel and artist Salvador Dali. The films deal with phobias as it conveys sensations of fear, ugliness and madness alongside those of calm, beauty and esthetics.” Yosef Perez
“The collection tries to immortalize the glory of the “roaring 20’s” with a “rock and roll” look.” Yosef Perez
tonight i will be joining my friends over at Fashion Indie for a fun party and a very serious walk off for, no big deal, just some MANOLO BLAHNIKS!
WISH ME LUCK!!!
Absolutely in LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE with Chanel’s Byzantine adventure for Pre-Fall 2011. Classic Chanel styles sometimes infused, sometimes taken over by ornamentation — square jewel buttons, layers of embroidery, intricate lace, cashmere and silk — all impeccably combined.
This bejeweled jacket is shoulder and collarless !!! amaze. when i was in design school i remember designing something like this, and my teachers told me it was impossible. impossible my friends?! not for The Lagerfeld. and how phenom is this jacket combined with oxford shirt and wide whale trouser.. so relaxed but opulent. totally my steez. i love the massive, almost armor like harness on top of the classic Chanel cream tweed coat. Karl has a way of making slight changes seem so impactful and a la mode.
navy and black, cashmere and leather, asymmetrical pops of gold embroidery, mixed prints, sweaters you want to live in when it’s cold and damp outside, crown headbands on messy done hair, leather boot/legging/tights and jewels jewels jewels.
the show was held in the couture salon on Rue Cambon, surrounded by opulent gold walls, tapestries and furniture. the models started out walking to songs off Dark Side of the Moon, and it ended with shimmering tweed, sequin and beaded gowns, mash ups of embroidery.. i love the belt folded over the gown, so unexpected.
my favorites tho were the frothy confections of opalescent sheer silk chiffon covered in embroidery and cheeky little gold lame panties, and medium grey sheer maxi dress with chain and jewel detailing on the sleeves..
you can watch the video here
so in keeping with the theme of the day — cray-cray fashion coming from friends, my super rad friend Glendon Romett just sent me this amazing pants video. yes, you read that right, pants video. faves are the weird animal head on the white jeans and second place goes to the quacking ducks. i especially love the techno mix and just like the rando running shoe platform stilletos from my last post, if you really wanted, i guess you could DIY the shiz outta these guys too. thanks Glendon!
and check out Glendon’s superfantastic band Primitive Noyes you can download their album for free, right from the website. YAY FREE!
now i’m off to Stand Up for Peace charity event which i am very excited about! we’ll be seeing Wyatt Cenac, Jenny Slate and a bunch of other comedians as well. Should be really fun, and we’ll be attending the after party too so if there are good photos, you know they’ll be posted! i hope you also have a lovely evening!
