Cool Ads

PRADA Spring/Summer 2010 ads campaign starring Rasa Zukauskaite, shot by Steven Meisel.

Great Find

Instead of this BALMAIN destroyed T-shirt (Above: Euro 787.50 = THB 35,400), I found this ZARA T-shirt (Below: THB 1,290). I don't care what people say, I feel good to spend only 1/30 of the actual BALMAIN's price and, at least, it doesn't have a Fake BALMAIN label on it...

Life After Death

Follow the death of Alexander McQueen, the sales of his label is soared. People have flocked to his stores to make some purchase as a memento. Liberty, a long-time stockist of the brand, reported a 1,400% uplift in sales after the designer's death was confirmed. His signature skull scarf sold out within hours. Apparently, there are some available on his US website but who knows for how long. If you haven't own one (which I think you should), hurry up !!!

We Are The World 25 For Haiti


The new version of "We Are the World - 25 for Haiti," and its video, was premiered during the Opening Ceremony for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. It features over 80 artists and performers.
I totally hate it because it sounds like a joke. When the original version was that good, don't mess with it... and they did. What do you think???

Clip of the Day

This clip is from Alexander McQueen Fall 2006 collection shows which he ended the show with hologram Kate Moss. "Inside an empty glass pyramid, a mysterious puff of white smoke appeared from nowhere and spun in midair, slowly resolving itself into the moving, twisting shape of a woman enveloped in the billowing folds of a white dress. It was Kate Moss, her blonde hair and pale arms trailing in a dream-like apparition of fragility and beauty that danced for a few seconds, then shrank and dematerialized into the ether." SOURCE

" It’s a loss for the fashion industry.
His story was one of success and talent,
but that may not be enough to keep you alive. "

" If you ask any lady they want to be taller, they want to be slimmer, you know, and they want a waist. I'm not here to make people look like a sack of potatoes. "

Alexander The Great

I woke up with a message from my friend "Alexander McQueen committed suicide." My heart was sinking and was praying that it was not true, but it is. The world has lost one of the greatest creator since the death of Gianni Versace. I still remember the day I went into his boutique in Meatpacking district in NYC, it was like I walked through a museum of art. The world of fashion wouldn't be the same without him... Long live McQueen !!!
