Fun Stuff

wut is it? Some sick pieces I picked in Buenos Aires 
back in January. Because it was summer there, I got 
my hands on some insane spring/ summer gear, and 
once the season changed, I started repping Argentina 
with full force.

Here are some interpretations of what I nabbed...

(Jacket- Good Will; Tank- L'agence; Pants- Kosiuko 
from Agentina; Shoes- A-Wang; Glasses 80's vintage)

(Jacket- Salvation Army; Dress- AY NOT DEAD, Arg; 
Shoes- Complot,Arg)

I basically live in those shoes, they are effortlessly 
cute and comfortable

(T-shirt- AY NOT DEAD, Leather Shorts- Buffalo 
Exchange(the best buy); Shoes- Complot, Arg; Glasses 
courtesy of Casino Nelson- 40's vintage)

As usual photo's by the incredibly talented Casino Nelson. 
His website, and tumblr

I am off to Barcelona next week, and intend to blog about 
the style, and snap quick shots of what I am wearing too. 
Until then I am relentlessly trying to narrow down my 
wardrobe! It's hard...

Some travel prep

wut is it? My on going praise for Argentine clothing 
companies. I head to Barcelona in less than a week for 
the summer, so I thought in Spanish spirit I would 
share some great stuff.

I am very excited to explore the style of the Barcelona 
denizens, clothing companies and stores oh my... but 
until then I gaze websites of clothes from across 
the Atlantic.

Coragroppo Fall 11'. It's monochromatic, dramatic, and 
so fantastic

Maria Cher Fall 11'. It feels like A.P.C meets Ralph 
Lauren with an Argentine flare... I am very intrigued 
and very much liking it

This might be most of the line sheet, but I loved it all; 
its versatile, classic with an edge, and right up my 
ally. 

Oh and one of the fall campaign videos which promotes 
a collaboration of some kind uses Fleet Foxes... enough 
said... seriously.

Some of my own Argentine gems will be posted soon...

 

 

 

New kid on the block

wut it is? Fashion designer Prabal Gurung, who was 
originally born in Singapore but grew up in Nepal's 
Kathmandu Valley. Being that I just took a Himalayan 
art history class, I need to shout him out. He is has 
worked for various substantial designers; interning for 
Donna Karen, and working at Cynthia Rowling in New 
York. His education started in New Delhi, India at their 
National Institute of Fashion Technology, and then 
attended Parsons School of design. Being a New 
School-er myself, I need to show some love, and his 
designs so beautiful, and inventive, he makes it easy.

Some Fall' 11 favorites

 

 

I am seriously into the patchwork lace on this jacket

 

 

His attention to detail make his work breathtaking, 
and I love his use of color, its understated but there. 
There are many pieces in his collection I would not 
mind reinterpreting into my wardrobe.
