Christopher Kane for Men?

    According to Kane:
    "I became obsessed with the explosions and landscapes from space pictures," Kane explained. "I loved the colours and unbelievable detail. I printed them on to simple shapes, like loose fit T-shirts, cashmere and silk-mix knitted sweaters and cardigans."

    "Tailoring comes in the shape of soft black leather suit jackets with zip details and sporty leather shorts," the designer added. "I also experimented with the hoody, and patched leather arms with multi star prints for a sporty other-worldly look."

    I am always intrigued by his women collections, they are so fun, different but still wearable. The price starts at £203 at Dover Street Market. So I guess the cheapest item would probably be these space T- shirts... Maybe a bit too expensive for me but still I am excited to see what he comes up with. And I am always jump at the word cashmere and knitwear (and soft black leather suit jackets!)

Fashion Photo Diary Entry #2 | Louis Pt.I

Egon Schiele Drawings

    During the weekend, I visit the Royal Academy of Arts in London and went to the "Treasures from Budapest: European Masterpieces from Leonardo to Schiele" Exhibition. It was very interesting, full of figurative paintings of Bible stories and icon arts. I, however rush through it trying to look for Egon Schiele's drawing which was in the last room on the last wall just before the exit and there was only one piece... I know, so I spent about 15 minutes just starring at this watercolour painting which was suppose to portray "two women embracing."

    Egon Schiele was an Austrian Painter in the early 1910's. He is known mostly for his drawings of nudes and figures. He was an expressionist with a little influence of Art deco (he was the protégé of Klimt.)
    Lately, I have been very interested in his artwork and mood it portrays. It was maximalism, in terms of emotions. His work explores erotica and lust which was a taboo in the 1910. He pushed the limit and spend a short period of his life in prison when they found his supposedly "explicit" drawings.

    Out of all the artists I have looked at he is probably one of my favourite and I really admire his work, I feel that his work still reflects today and in someway they are very new, modern and forward. These images are taken from the book "Egon Schiele Drawings and Watercolours" which is an amazing book in terms of images as it include a very large portion of his work.Source URL: http://naturalbellescloset.blogspot.com/2010/11/

10 Days of Christmas, 10 Gifts I expect from my true love!

    1| Anything AND I MEAN anything from COS!! I said this before but I'm going to say it again I love COS. I mean everything is incredible. Check out the comfortable and affordable cashmere stuff. They are incredible especially for Christmas.

    2| Lolita-esque matte red lips really reminds me of summer. A good red lipstick is the Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in the shade Vesuvio. A statement pair of lips can take you far. Check out Lolita, one of my personal favourite where Dominique Swain is rocking this look. I bought Nars Trans-Siberian for my friend Jorja which is another great red colour.

    3| The new Hedi Slimane new book or photobook; Anthology of A Decade.

    4| Happy Socks. I fell in love with these socks, so colourful, so fun and they are only £6. These are the kind of socks that people would get excited about. (well i do anyway)

    5| Lazyoaf Tees are very cute and they had loads of amazing stuff so check out their stores on Carnaby Street or Covent Garden in London or Online.

    6| Lanvin Flower Pins. These are incredible, the french certainly know how to make their flowers. I've been eyeing this one since Paris. They come in incredible range of colours and different fabric too.

    7| Christmassy with style. From Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal. They come in cooler colours and print if you go to Urban Outfitters.

    8| I really want one of these and this one is a Diana F+ Dreamer Limited Edition. I love this because they come in mint which is my new favourite colour.

    9| Ladurée macarons are my favourite thing of all time, I mean I would give an arm for a box of eight (not literally) but they are so yummy! My favourite flavours are lemon, red fruits, chocolate from Madagascar and 1001 Nights (a christmas special with figs and something warm.) They are having a collaboration with John Galliano at the moment and the boxes come in pastel pink.

    10| Lanvin Bow ties cufflinks is a great gift for anyone who wears suit or shirts. I think cufflinks give a very nice touch to a suit and they look really good on girls too. These are platinum plated and you can find them at Brown's.

A Moment on South Molton St. | Photo Diary

White-Out In?

    It was a haze of white flowy fabric on the Spring/Summer 2011 runway. From Alexander Wang beautiful, relaxed interpretation to the very preppy of Paul Smith. When summer comes in mind, I always think of colours but to be completely honest, my wardrobe is full of pale/off-whites and whites. There are so many things that is very obvious from this season runway like bright orange and sheer fabrics: We have been seeing a lot of boobs and moobs [man-boobs:)].
    Alexander Wang show was inspired by "white-out." It is simple but still very slick and smart as always. The girls just look so polish surprisingly without any makeup. They have a very sporty feel to them which is what I like, the trousers almost look like tracksuits, the skin are very dewy and everything seem to be comfortable and practical but still chic.

    The play on the white shirt is fantastic and don't they just look so cool with the glossy red lips? Victor and Rolf is known for being over the top and their "white shirt" concept is a great representation of their aesthetics. Ironic that they made something so simple, probably the most simple into something extravagant. The sharp cuts, lines and layers very much remind me of a marriage between cubism and minimalism. Which I love (again.) Check out Georges Braque and you'll understand.

    Classic, classic, classic. Michael Kors is so classic and the clothes just look so comfortable, I love the ideas of light knitwears in the summer as I am always reaching for my cardigan. This is a great inspiration for people who loves the preppy, clean look. The combination of white, tan and pastelles is divine and you can't really go wrong.

    Paul Smith WOMEN show; I would wear everything they are wearing here, the wool trousers, the buttoned-up shirt, the glasses, the pleats. It stills maintains the preppy-ness but now they have a new attitude, a younger one for a matter of fact. It is almost a punk but the kind that are more put together.Like punk in a wedding.

    I like the clean-cut jackets with shorts but not so much the netting shirt (moobs alert). The sunglasses looks fun and perfect for summer. They just look really COOL. Thats all I can say. I need to check out General Idea, I have never seen them in person but they look great on the runway. They should get more attention!

    Not sure about the clinical nurse open-bellied shirt but the tan sandals looks fantastic with the white. The shirt at the bottom look interesting, maybe some layering could duplicate this effect. I think I will be shopping in COS soon looking for the perfect white shirt which I am dying for.And PS: I'll take an oversized white tees and a pair of skinny jeans to a deserted island and maybe some sandals.Source URL: http://naturalbellescloset.blogspot.com/2010/11/
