Beatrix Ong shoes
I discovered Beatrix Ong through Cool Hunting post, who discovered it through the ever so cool, Refinery 29. Cool shoes are never sold in Canada, sigh. They are pretty much everywhere else in the world, even Moscow!
This is one amazing summer sandal. I wonder if I can find something similar in Toronto.
In honour of the Clothing Show (May 5- 6, 2007) I will featuring my favourite designers that you can find at the show. This special “i wantâ€¦â€ features Pink Pamplemousse.
I featured Pink Pamplemousse on I want – I got previously. I’m the proud owner of the Ada clutch pictured above.
Kate Moss Topshop
Like most celebrity clothing lines I am bored with Kate Moss’s Topshop venture. I do like this dress though.
What do you guys think of the line? It seems like a lot of hype for pretty boring clothes. And isn’t the midriff thing dead yet?
EDIT: Catwalk Queen live blogged the whole event and shows us some of the outfits on real people. I’m not dissing the people here, I’m dissing the clothes, so let’s get that straight first. The dress I like (above) doesn’t stand up to the reality factor. Check out the other looks – striped hotpants and waistcoat, chiffon one-shoulder dress and halter mini and the floral dress & red jeans with video also. I find the formal dresses particularly bad, especially the one with the vest.
ANOTHER EDIT: fashionista.com gives their verdict on the white one-shoulder dress. Susie Stylebubble adds her 2 cents on the line
In honour of the Clothing Show (May 5- 6, 2007) I will featuring my favourite designers that you can find at the show. This special “i wantâ€¦â€ features Moonrox.
Moonrox jewelery has been featured on I want – I got previously and I also interviewed designer Monique Chan on blogTO.
I’m in love with this bracelet, it screams summertime to me. All photos are from Monique’s new collection.
In honour of the Clothing Show (May 5- 6, 2007) I will featuring my favourite designers that you can find at the show. This special “i want…” features Passenger Pigeon.
I’ve been a fan of the eco-friendly fashion created by Heather Schibli from Passenger Pigeon. I’ve featured PP twice before on I want – I got and posted an interview on blogTO.
In honour of the Clothing Show (May 5- 6, 2007) I will featuring my favourite designers that you can find at the show.
Starting the week off is Knotty Girls. I previously featured a pearl and silk necklace from Knotty Girls’s designer Danielle Ker. Ribbon is a big feature in Danielle’s designs. She’s a ribbon nut and previously worked at Mokuba, that beautiful and colourful store on the corner of Queen Street West and Portland Ave.

This yellow silk dress is so cute with it’s asymmetrical peter pan collar. I’m loving the mini dress this Spring Summer 2007 season.
edit: late night blogging gets you stupid headlines
Eileen Shields shoes
These look like those kungfu shoes with an exaggerated platform, loves it.
Not available in Canada, boo urn.
I wrote a post called La Senza Spirit vs. Tom Ford a while back. I talked about a pair of knock off Tom Ford Sunglasses I got. I’ve seen two places today that are selling the same knockoff, Obsessions and Old Navy.
It’s time to review the new Mike & Chris collection for Spring/Summer 2007. Of course, I love it.
“hunter” ligthweight canvas trench
“kennedy” kimono sleeved lightweight cotton canvas swing coat
This image is from Vogue Paris March 2007 featuring a model that I like, Freja Beha. This ode to the 1990s is truly awful. The pants are my biggest problem with this outfit, some things should stay dead. Balmain figured Spring 2007 needed true hammer pants. So very wrong.
So Prada has made the turban a hot item for spring 2007. I actually got to touch one in person at Holt Renfrew the other day.
These things are tiny. I have a pretty small head and I couldn’t fit into a medium. Is Stam’s head that tiny? I think the turban cost $250 bucks.
I also saw the knockoff version from M by Madonna for H&M this weekend, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper ($14.99). Man is that collection boring, I’m sure it will sell though. As you can guess, the H&M version wasn’t quite as nice as Prada.
Adios and Ciao Ciao by tokidoki
I love tokidoki so much. The new Spring 2007 LeSportSac handbag collection have Adios on them.
The toys will be available in May at Magic Pony and the bags are available at Bonny.
I love the new spring 2007 coats at Club Monaco. First they came in black and khaki with wide cropped sleeves. They look amazing on the mannequin.
Then I spotted the slicker version. Grey patent, this would be a standout coat.
Unfortunately, I realized that I couldn’t pull it off. I put this coat on and it looked like a big plastic bag wrapped around me. Sigh, no patent jackets for me. 🙁 The black one was okay, but looked much better on the mannequin.
It’s taken a few seasons but I’ve come to like Marni a lot. My favourite partsof the collections are the wonderful coats. Here is a selection of the coats from the Marni Spring 2007 collection.
I’ve just noticed that I enjoy the location of Karl’s show more than the clothes. After seeing Dior and JPG, I’m so bored with this. However, the location of the show is beautiful.
I loved the shoes though. Now, I understand what Jeanne Beker was going off about at the Bata Shoe Museum exhibit opening last week. Karl’s influence is on display there now.
Steven Meisel Smart Moves: Vogue Feature Story on Style.com
A little picture commentary for you by me. This is from Vogue January 2007.
I’ve been ignoring this rave fashion trend that is supposely coming back. I figured it would be just a fringe thing. This picture has the dreaded sneaker heel by Dries Van Noten.
I really like this photo for some reason. I do hope that this look doesn’t go mainstream. I like it and all, but it’s not something I want to see executed without stylist supervision.
I hate to admit this but I do like this layered tank by Marc Jacobs. Makeup and hat are a big no for me though.
The new Louboutins for SS2007 are out. Here are my favourites
This shoe is called Cosette which is funny because I’m giving Les Miserables(the book) a second go. The first time I got halfway and then lost my copy of the book. I was very pissed, this thing is 1300 pages long. I found another copy but it was months later and I would have to start all over again. So it got delayed a few years.
Some of my favs from Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2007 season. These horrible pictures don’t do the clothing justice.
Gap Press has hit the newsstands. I don’t pay much attention to shows until the Gap Press books come out. I enjoy the experience much more with the magazines.
My favourite collections:
Balenciaga – I’m loving futurism shit. It’s all about the C3PO leggings, love them.
Alexander McQueen – Of course, he can do no wrong in my book
Christian Dior – JG took a step back this season and it’s amazing
Miu Miu – Loved the pallet and prints
Prada – Who cares if there were no pants
Comme Des Garcons – The jackets were so incredible
Dolce & Gabbana – I totally blew these guys off awhile ago. Boy was I wrong. The runway show was awesome too. God, that runway.

These shoes are from the SS2007 collection. I just don’t get the kitten heel, they look a little unstable to me.
I laughed my ass off when I saw these handbags. That is very clever Mr. Marc Jacobs, I have to give you props for this handbag from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2007 collection. I can’t wait to see this hit the streets and the knockoffs to bound to follow. I wonder how many people will take their own chinese shopping bag and paint the LV logo on it.
Check out the full Louis Vuitton Spring 2007 collection. I was suprised, I didn’t hate every piece in the collection. I actually liked some of it. It’s loooong though, freakin’ 55 pieces.
Yay. I’m excited as I got my media pass to L’Oreal Fashion Week confirmed yesterday. Be sure to check blogTO.com for my report from the runways. I really want to see a lot of Tuesdays program but I’m booked with my software quality group TASSQ that day. I can’t decide what to do. sigh
