KTZ: FROM KITSCH TO COOKIE - The Charlie's Angels Effect

I might be wrong and I wouldn't admit it if it were true, it's just not my style, but I must speak about the KTZ Menswear Collection for Spring/ Summer 2015.   Now you know I've been a fan for a while.   More than one post in fashionwhoreny has been devoted to singing their praises. 

But this season something feels off.  It's like a Charlie's Angels sequel.  The first movie was AWESOME, totally unbelievable but amazing for it's Kitsch.  The second movie was cute but it was more of the same and less than before.  And that is what happened for me with KTZ this season.

Abandoned by Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane Diary (February 2014)

I'm having this moment of, "where is Hedi Slimane's Diary when I need it?" 

I interviewed Monica Menez: The future of Fashion Film

I love being right.  It gives me a tingle deep in the pit of my stomach.  Like good foreplay.  When I read little tidbits from industry powerhouses about things I already saw coming I get a cheshire grin on my face.  :)

And this is another one of those things I know I'm right about.  That feeling is there spreading ... like the best foreplay.  And here it is; I just interviewed the Future of Fashion Film:  and her name is Monica Menez




I'm not afraid to say it, I've missed JOHN GALLIANO. And he's back!


Russia:  I'm not ain't afraid to say it.  I've missed John Galliano.  Fashion has not been the same with out him and I for one am glad to say, John Galliano is BACK!

2015 Louis Vuitton Resort Collection by Nicolas Ghesquire - W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L!


PARIS:  Maybe you were skeptical about Nicolas Ghesquire as the new Creative Director of Louis Vuitton but I wasn't.  Not even a little bit.  When he left Balenciaga in 2012 I knew he was NOT done with the fashion industry, he still had too much to say.  When he landed at Vuitton I knew it was a good match, the only thing better than Nicolas for Louis Vuitton would be for him to start his own brand, to which I'd also be happy as kittens.

MARNI F/W 2014-15: THE SUMO WRESTLER

Call me crazy but the first thing I thought watching the Fall/ Winter 2014-15 Marni catwalk was SUMO Wrestler ...

Don't know why ... ok maybe I do

Marni F/W 2014-15 
It was the silhoutte.  The extreme heaviness up top with the exagerated shoulders and puffed sleeves.
I really loved it.  But it will be difficult to wear without looking like an automatum.  The volume up top would be a challenge to navigate elegantly.  But thankfully those weren't the only looks for the collection.  There's more!
