    FASHION IN FILM: MOONRISE KINGDOM

    I got so excited when I saw a sneak peek on someone’s photoshoot on Instagram that totally was inspired by the whole Moonrise Kingdom/woodland/outdoorsy vibe. You know.. think feathers (those bird costumes), scout uniforms, plaid shirts, gingham picnic dresses etcetc. So innocent and childlike, just like the 2 young protagonists venturing away from home. It really reminds me of the stories I used to read about when I was a kid, about Swallows & Amazons, creating their amazing adventures in the outdoors. Been having a bit of wanderlust envy lately, and yet I want to go out there & explore these far flung places like Kosovo, Lake Como, Shangri-la, Burma, sand…

    NIGHTWATCH

    Ahh.. my own special Art Day. I went to a talk not too long ago & the speaker was talking about how everyone creative should go off & experience their own Art Days by themselves. I thought that was a very important thing, to refresh & renew. So of course I popped by the Singapore Art Museum. Loved it! Some really dark, brooding works by Chinese artist Jia Aili and then off to some interesting pop art-type stuff at the Art Garden at 8Q & the Learning Gallery. Pretty cool Asian contemporary stuff!

    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)
