Louis Vuitton Toronto Goes Grafitti

 Louis Vuitton Toronto Goes Grafitti

I stumbled across some news about a local grafitti artist named Skam.  He was commissioned to add some artwork to the LV wall for their Stephen Sprouse campaign.  Skam is among a number of graffiti artists that Louis Vuitton is calling on in various cities to help with this tribute.

i want Rick Owens Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket

Rick Owens – Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket

Rick Owens Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket Spring 2009

How freaking hot is this leather jacket by Rick Owens. It’s has more volume compared to most of his sleeker leathers. He keeps the signature slim sleeves with high armholes that makes a Rick Owens jacket a dream to wear. It’s cropped and it reminds me of a bomber jacket put through the Rick Owenantor.

i want Givenchy Spring 2009 shoes.

Givenchy has some amazing, amazing shoes right now.

Givenchy Cut-out shoe boots

Christian Louboutin did a fuchsia shoe last season, but I think this Givenchy one is much superior. I see me in these with the Alexander McQueen dress I tried on at Holts. I’m freaking myself out.

Givenchy Crossed strap sandals

I’m really smitten with these sandals. They are like the perfect all around summer shoe.

EDIT: I saw the Givenchy Lace ankle sandals at Browns on Bloor Street in Toronto today. They must have just arrived and they have both black and white. – Feb 14, 2009

Lanvin Spring Summer 2009 Ad Campaign

Lanvin Spring Summer 2009 Ad Campaign

I’m enjoying the Lanvin Spring Summer 2009 Ad Campaign. The clothing is beautiful of course, that goes without saying. I’m loving the whole “cheekily playing in your large changroom before it’s time to go out” vibe that is happening in this campaign. I usually don’t find depictions of narcissism that attractive, but I think the mirror loving Iselin works very, very well.

Yup, it’s a Meisel joint.

Felipe Oliveira Baptista Haute Couture -  Spring Summer 2009

I check out Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s collections every season but this year his presentation and standout jackets caught my eye. There is also a futurist aspect to the clothing. I’m also enjoying the urban uniform vibe his clothing portrays.

Me and the Alexander McQueen Striped column dress

I first salivated over the Alexander McQueen Striped column dress during the Mens Spring Summer 2009 show. Soon afterwards, Net-a-Porter carried the dress and I went crazy again as they had some great shots of the dress.

Well, I finally tried on a variant of the dress at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street. Of course I had to take a couple sneaky photos in the changeroom. It’s stunning, but it’s a shame this version missing the statement shoulder. This dress fits like a dream and feels like nothing on. It’s a serious curve hugging dress. I’m in love. However, it’s $1500!!!! A girl can dream though.

Alexander Wang on his Spring 2009 Collection at Saks.com

One of my peeps at Saks sent me a link to this video they had made for the Alexander Wang Spring 2009 Collection at Saks.com. In this video, Alexander talks about the inspiration for the designs and a model stands there doing what she does best in said design. I find it really interesting as I love to know what the backstory to each piece is.

I’m not one to watch a lot video but I think this works for the following reasons: it’s short and the designer is talking about pieces that are available at the retailer which allows it to be more focused and relevant. It gives the consumer more information about the collection and they now know what is available in the store/online shop.

Phi Spring Summer 2009 – Ad Campaign

Phi Spring Summer 2009 - Ad Campaign

There is something about this campaign for the Phi Spring Summer 2009 collection that I really like. I get a 20s vibe from the setting. For some reason the background colour reminds me of The Great Gatsby. I also am a fan of the dark haired model, Kinga. She was also in the Balenciaga Spring Summer 2009 ad campaign. Oh ya, this is another Meisel joint.
