Theyskens' Theory

"Spring's most eagerly anticipated collection." - Net-a-porter on the collaboration between New York label, Theory and Belgian designer, Olivier Theyskens.

I've been a fan of Theory for a long time now. Classic cuts in the most amazing fabrics, not to mention immaculate workmanship! But not gonna lie, I've never heard of Olivier Theyskens until lately. After doing some research online, I am impressed with his CV, having worked at both Nina Ricci and Rochas.

In any case, I was excited when the collection finally launched!

The blazers and shirts have a triangle cut at the back of the collar. Theyskens explained that he likes the way shoulders shrug forward. And the hems of the tees are spliced at the sides so it can be worn with just the front tucked in. I thoroughly appreciate these small details, that really, when it comes down to it, makes all the difference.

Gooky by Gooky

Have you guys seen the advertisement of James Franco for the Gucci fragrance?

Just saw the spoof version here and thought it was pretty funny - an Oscar nominted actor acting all retarded. HAHA.. Gooky, or is it Gucky?
Even all stupid and mumbling (even some foul words at the end), I don't mind me some James Franco - he's hawwwttt stuff!!

Also, if you have not seen the real thing, here it is:

Denim on Denim

So, the general rule of thumb when matching clothing is to match tops and bottoms that contrast. Be it different colours, solids with prints or contrasting materials. Lately we're seeing a lot of denim on denim which I find "breaks the rules" but you know what, I love it! My most recent purchase is a denim shirt! And yeap, straight away, paired it with my denim shorts :) doesn't stock any denim at the moment. Hmm... will have to look into that.

So what do guys think of d-on-d?

Mission Colour Block

Ah! It's that time of year again.. when we get to feast on spring/summer collections :) Enough of fur coats and thick layering, beautiful as they may be. I am loving this season's creations perfect for our sunny weather!

As with every transition from winter to spring, we see COLOUR. From florals to the most amazing abstract prints, runways are just dripping with rich hues. A personal favourite is Jil Sander's 2011 Spring/Summer show in Milan. Although she had a few looks with prints, I found the plain colour-block looks most inspiring! Makes me want to go to my closet to see what I can put together!


I know it's a teeny bit crazy to walk around town in head-to-toe brights, so try colour-blocking with neutrals and just one bright piece. Blogger Carolina Engman, from shows us how it's done :


Mmmm.. perfect. Have to go rummage through my wardrobe. NOW.
