    OPENING CEREMONY IN LONDON

    Woohoo! Another lovely pop-up shop in London for OC, just in time for the London Olympics of course! That’s pretty much where they got their name, you know. Ie. opening ceremonies for the Olympics, how the Olympics merges sports, business & global participation etc.  Anyways, as always, love their style & concept. And they have plenty of limited edition OC collabs with designers like Chloe Sevigny, Boy by Band of Outsiders, Adidas Originals etc. Love Love!

    LV X YAYOI KUSAMA = JESSIE J??

    One of my fav artists Yayoi Kusama is doing a collaboration with Louis Vuitton of all people. But yeah, I remember watching this documentary abt Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, and he met the artist in Tokyo some back. Her art is pretty iconic, so I think it’ll be quite a hit! The capsule collection runs for about 2-3 months at each pop-up LV store across the world. Will this be the next thing for high-end designers? To do collaborations with artists to promote their brand? Cos we all know who first pushed the collab idea, it was H&M right..? Or Target? Looks like luxury brands are really pushing for presence everywhere…

    SOMETIMES BEING WAY TOO DIFFERENT IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU

    Yup! There I said it. It applies to everything fashion. You want to look different from everyone else, but you don’t want to look too different from everyone else. Get it? You still need to follow the trends but style yourself your own way with by mixing & matching. #tipoftheday (I for one like the strangest things – zombies, grindhouse, oldoldold buildings, baroque style, comedy nights, whisky)

    AUDI FASHION WEEK -FW 2012 RAOUL

    Audi fashion week was a better event that I went to see – the RAOUL FW 2012 fashion show. Lots of 60’s influence with the geometric graphic prints, houndstooth, oranges & greens, and mod dresses. I’m not a big fan of the 60’s but I can see the trend carrying on for Fall 2012 too. I liked the styling of the hair & the makeup for the models – topknot braided buns & thick doe-eyed eyeliner. And of course there were plenty of people to look at too! Ashley Islam was there, along with Dick Lee, Shabnam Melwani (from the JayGee group), of course the Benjamins, and Tallulah Harlech (fashion…

    JUST DON’T GET IT

    Sometimes you think people get you, but they don’t. Sometimes you think you get people, but you don’t. Everyone has their own place & time where they belong & everything feels right. You love the people & the city, and they love you back. Sometimes not. So what happens if you don’t fit?…Do you make a statement & live it anyway? Pave the way for others to follow, step up & be the leader of the pack?                 Great stuff from BOTB/Hellz Bellz!
