Oh these aussies and they’re incredibly rad stuff. Blows my mind every time! These jungle inspired photos are part of the editorial campaign titled Grand National by Australian fashion label Cameo
I know we’ve seen our fair share of floral/jungle-fever editorials, but I particularly love this one because it’s both art and fashion in one stylish combo, how can you go wrong with trendy mixed media?!
Also, these type of editorials are a reminder that winter is soon coming to an end..YEEASSS, no more vaseline to lube one’s face ’cause the cold is cracking the shit out of your pores. Until that day comes, go peruse on Cameo’s other campaigns which are just as fabush. Happy weekend chicolinos! (is that a word?).
JEBUZZZZ. I think it’s only fair if we all freak out a little bit about these mixed media pieces by Jesse Draxler, no?
This series was produced by Jesse as a lookbook for New York based high-end retailer OAK NYC, and boy did he nail it! I swear, just by looking at these images I want to buy every single article of clothing, which will probably cost a million dollars, but hey, one can dream, right?
If you do have a million dollars just laying around and want to go shopping to OAK, can you take me with you?! I’ll carry your bags!
Guys guys! I just started a new church, well, it’s more like a cult and it’s called Sistas and Mistas of the Euro Badass Brodahood. We gather once and week and talk about the possibility of going back in time and ask our parents to give birth to us in some european country, one that’s very designy if possible. We are currently recruiting! All you need to join is a COOL-AS-F*CK ATTITUDE.
Anyways. No, you’re not reading the title wrong and no I’m not drunk blogging (although that’d be great); Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre is a french garment design house created by Amélie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan, for us peasants that can’t read French, the name is a number and it means: 1984.
These fine ladies combine super arty/modern designs with textiles like cotton and silk to create the lovely scarves seen above. The styling, the colours, everything is drool worthy. In other words – and as mentioned in their FB page – their work is like “Hermes for the tumblr generation”. Oh hell to the yes!
K, gonna print some membership cards for those of you who want to join the cult. PS. Tom Cruise might pop by for tacos and beer later this week.
Remember Masha Reva? I sure haven’t forgotten her, she’s the one that did this amazing collaboration with Kiev-based brand Syndicate. This collab was super successful for both of them, I mean come on! We all went gaga on pinterest with it!
Well, Masha is back again with a whole new series – also in partnership with Syndicate – titled Odessa. For this series miss Reva mixed vintage flea market finds with kitschy luxurious Ukrainian elements and a few pops of good ol’ royal jewels. Totally fit for a Queen! Not an average Brit Queen of course, but a fashion forward vixen.
Side note: those nails are serious swag!

Who wants some art and fashion!?
This capsule collection by NOIR NOIR is kinda blowing everyone’s lid right now. It’s a fusion between photography and fashion, pattern and colour, cool and fucking awesome. In a world where there’s TONS of competition in every single industry, differentiation is key to survive, and in this case, I bet NOIR NOIR is doing pretty well.
Also, have you noticed that the word of the year is – aside from selfie – “capsule”?, I kinda love it and we will definitely see more of this small – capsule – collections popping up everywhere, you just wait!

This ad campaign for Harajuku clothing store Laforet titled Be Noisy is as quirky and weird as the world-famous style this district is known for. Directed by Rikako Nagashima, these looks merge all-time favourites such as florals and art – the art being those crazy installation-like wires coming out of the model’s mouth. Only in Japan.
You should definitely check out the short videos below to see the whole thing happening. I mean, when was the last time you saw someone spitting flowers and wires out of their mouth all while looking super kawaii? (Yes, I’m totally pulling my Gwen-Stefani-2004-Hollabackgirl lingo in here, which is as Harajuku as I’ll ever be).

Intergalactic planetary awesomeness. That’s what artist and designer Maiko Takeda is all about. Her new collection titled ‘Atmospheric Reentry’, is a futuristic take on runway essentials. The minimal construction of the garments, combined with the multifaceted accessories, create an extremely powerful look that is nothing but pure art.
I wonder if some crazy fashionista is already wearing something similar on the streets of New York or London, ’cause those are breeding grounds for any eccentric looks.
Visit Maiko Takeda‘s site to see her other collections. It’s so inspiring to see her work and to see how she executes each look with Japanese precision.
