Goga Ashkenazi’s First Collection for Vionnet for S/S’13

September 30, 2012

The ever revolving doors scenario continues at Vionnet. A label that garnered much hype and excitement at it’s re-launch, and, bar from a couple of seasons, has never really hit its stride.

Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir captures the vision of Riccardo Tisci

September 29, 2012

I don’t know why I’m surprised that I like Givenchy’s ‘Dahlia Noir’ quite so much.

For me, the most important outfit shown during the catwalk presentation for his Spring/Summer 2013 collection was a plain white deconstructed shirt and matching gathered skirt. Out of the sea of atypical adornment, denim and jersey, this outfit positively screamed “It’s […]

September 26, 2012

A little while ago, I got my trusty iPhone4S stolen when I was mugged. It was a big loss for a social media madam. I say this to give some background to this post and to state from the very beginning re how I’m usually an Apple devotee. In fact, @TeamChutzpah always maintains that Apple […]

Dolce & Gabbana’s Sicilian Peasant Girl meets Tourist for S/S’13

September 25, 2012

This was a curious collection for Dolce & Gabbana. Not as it was rooted in their native Sicily and brimming over with ‘La Dolce Vita’ as it normally is, but because it took such a sharp right angle from their last operatic baroque showing which remains in the mind’s eye as it fashioned a thousand […]
