after january, lv is going to stop producing the murakami line.
what are your thoughts on the limited edition line?
i own a black murakami speedy & i adore it.
it's really a stunning bag that compliments a beautiful coat
or outfit,
i'm tired of the tracksuit look with the bag. it cheapens it.
not a big fan of soccer moms in jeans and sneakers wearing it
with a trucker hat and messy hair.
if you want to see a picture, i'll post one.

i have a love/hate relationship with louis vuitton.
i think this season's collection is IT. just beautiful, gorgeous, inspiring, etc.
but LV is letting go on their service, methinks.
i bought shoes a while ago with a scratched heel that i had to go back
to get fixed.
and i bought a black murakami speedy with a few scratches on the gold hardware
that i have to go back and exchange.
it's been like paying for a project. you'd think spending that much money
would guarantee perfection but with LV it doesn't. that is so upsetting
because i love their collection so much.
i'll continue to buy from them but in the back of my mind it'll be such a chore
like, the saleslady will wish me a nice day and i'll be like, "yeah you too. see you tomorrow when i come back to get what i just bought fixed or exchanged."

The end of couture? [14 May 2004|05:51am]

Versace and Ungaro pulled the plug for this upcoming fashion week. No more couture -for now-.
and Pierre Berge, -the long-time partner of Yves Saint Laurent-, has made comments on couture dying with the retirement of Mr. St-Laurent.
On the other hand, Imitation of Christ's Tara Subkoff is looking for financial support so IOC can show in Paris ...
Thought it may spark your interest.

PS. Hi! Me newbie!

excerpts from an old article.

And in a funny way this is what sets Mr. Slimane himself apart: the allure of the clothes can't be completely explained. ''You know,'' he said, ''men are not supposed to be mysterious. That's what you say about women. But I think men can have a little of it, too.''

really? i think men should actually be more mysterious.

Mr. Slimane conceded that it's difficult to explain how a novice designer could be plucked from obscurity and put at one of the most venerable houses in Paris. But he suggested that the reason was somehow wrapped up in the mystique of Saint Laurent and, more, in the mercurial nature of its chairman, Pierre Berge. ''I don't think this house perhaps likes to hire known designers,'' said Mr. Slimane, who was working for the Paris press agent Jean-Jacques Picart when he was hired. Before that, he worked for the designer Jose Levy. ''It's something that makes Saint Laurent particular.''

not much is said about hedi's history. i remember him replying vaguely to a question about his relationship with pierre berge or jean-jacques picart and how it started. now i want to find out. it's funny, he's so famous, and we think we know about him but we don't!

his trademark sulky face. i like it.


oh yeah and i think helena looks cute in a tie, she just needs to lay off on the shine, it's highlighting all the wrong contours of her face and ageing her.

ballooned opera gloves by elsa schiaparelli

martin margiela's obscene proportions, july 1999

i really loved margiela's take on schiaparelli in '99, that collection is something you have to look deeper into to truly appreciate. i personally have a strong emotional attatchment to paris in 1999, i really came of age fashion and style-wise in 1999. the millenium brought out some of the finest fashion that sadly, has not been duplicated since.

there is nothing i would like more than to write a book about fashion in 1999, perhaps someday i will, but in the meantime i will continue to study these remarkable collections [f/w '98 - s/s '00] and gloss over the obvious details and find new whimsy to keep my fascination alive.

im keth, its nice to meet you all. :)

ok since i started this i figure i might as well put something up. [17 Apr 2004|12:56am]

"Delta Air Lines hired handbag queen Kate Spade to give its low-fare airline, Song, a glamorous look, with sporty outfits set to make their debut today. Delta also hired Los Angeles couturier Richard Tyler to give the parent airline a "sophisticated" wardrobe for 2006.
Air France, meanwhile, has selected Christian Lacroix to replace a hodgepodge of aging uniforms and trumpet the carrier's resurgence with a new line next year. And on April 26, British Airways plans to replace its decade-old outfits with pin-striped, tailored uniforms from Julien Macdonald."
-The Wall Street Journal Europe

i look forward to seeing what lacroix comes up with..
and wait, kate spade can do clothes?

WELCOME [17 Apr 2004|12:24am]

here you may bring up whatever topics big and small as long as it's fashion. debate and discussion encouraged.

fashionfiends was divided over whether or not to keep it high fashion only.
for those of you who prefer a concentrated discussion, rest assured that your lengthy odes and reviews will not be pushed down by ads and irrelevent auctions here.

the other plus for this comm. is moderation.
