Sorry for the lack of outfit posts, and posts in general. we've been overwhelmed with work, and the fact that we just finished our hardest chapter in math doesn't help either. I've been really inspired as of late. I'm really into Ann Demeulemeester and Rick Owens(yeah, I'm a bad vegetarian, leather, sue me, its Rick Owens) and looking at past Comme Des Garcons collections. Which obviously doesn't help my black, white and grey detox, but hey, its still cold right?
Well I made some crappy collages, all pictures are from style.com
I absolutely adore this, how it begins all light and turns into overdressed old men (a good thing) is simply genius. Is this some type of interpretation of how over time innocence is lost over time and the airiness of life slowly slips away? Or am I just crazy. Another thing that baffles me is how is it she comes up with this, does she decide: Yes, yes I think an old man theme will be appropriate now. Just wow, there are no words for this, Gabriel and I were gawking at this for about three minutes before we could conjure Susie Bubble'sUhh, umm, deep breath, sigh."
It is amazing what can be done with feathers, draping and air.
I love the Edwardian touches found throughout her collection. The sense of balance Ann created was also breath taking.
