Robot space penguins are people too

Gabriel writing,
I'm sure you've all seen our wonderful pictures from our random photoshoots. We do quite enjoy them, this ones purpose was originally to get a good picture of Ava's outfit for the weardrobe chuck taylor contest, but we submitted it in wrong or something and it never worked out. Anyways, the setting was totally amazing and the lighting was great and we were all wearing lovely outfits, so Paula just took pictures of all of us. I must say that the group photo is totally vogue editiorial worthy. My sartorial inspiration for today consisted of pointy margiela shoulders, tuxedos, weird phantom of the opera/magician tailcoat or tuxedo ensembles, gareth pugh horrifying pointy wtf perfection, and penguins. I think my end results was quite nice and i acheived my robot space penguin re-done tuxedo look i was going for, my inspiration collage is to the right by the way. I quite enjoy wearing CD cases as shoulder pads(I'm sorry Tavi, i will allow you to hate me and write an extensive post about how horrible i am stealing your genius ideas)but there simply is no other way to acheive big pointy margiela shoulders. I have no idea what to do in front of a camera, in fact i hate having my pictures taken which is ironic being as this is a fashion blog, so i just kind of stared at the camera. Ava actually knows what to do and i just kind ask Paula, but it never works out. Ava and I got the most exciting glares and stares, my favorite was of this one lady that went up to me, looked at me, went away and came back and looked at me, then left.






Well here's what i wore the day of the photoshoot, except for the hat, im trying to not make it a signature, but it worked so well with the outifit: panda hat, chinese street vendor, black lame jacket, american apparel, black vest, american apparel, tuxedo shirt(you can't see the pleating, but i though it added to the Gareth pugh element), random thrift store, bowtie, from my band uniform, drop crotch pants, store in China called 5cm, creative recreation boots

I, too, have toyed with the cds-as-shoulder-pads idea, so I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. Unfortunately, I don't have a large enough blazer to make it work. Looks glorious on you.
