London- based designers  Sass & Bide showed a collection called “Papa-Sucre” . I have no idea why it was called , as translated, “Sugar Daddy”. This looks more like “Mama Rafia“. Seriously, though, I do like  the friendly DYI quality of the Elizabethan collars. Swiping the rafia from the brownie mix stand at Trader Joe’s could help recreate this look. I think there needs to be more Elizabethan collars in this world today. That way I won’t look like that much of a fool when I wear mine out. That being said, this collection was sort of spacey, yet tribal. All that was missing was face paint and some bone jewelry.

Takashi Murakami took over the Palace of Versaille on September 15th with his collection of superflat art. This is something I would have dreamed of after watching Marie Antoinette and stuffing my face with Harajuku crepes. Seriously, though- this is friggin’AWESOME!!!!! It’s like the ultimate high-end punk statement if ever there was one. I think the last royal family of France would have love love loved the idea of colorful, cartoony art sprinkling the palace grounds. If I were Marie Antoinette, I would walk around the palace in one of the fancy outfits and ogle at each piece as I nibbled on cupcakes. I’d even touch the artwork because I would be the damn queen. Then, I’d have some poor fool paint me with Kaikai Kiki. Mr. Marmar would object with a guttural meow and then we’d add him to the painting. Wait. This may have happened in another life time. Here’s the painting to prove it:

That’s me as Marie Antoinette and my cats as painted by a Bob Ross clone. And yes, those are “happy trees”. HAHHAHAHHAHA!

Designer Martin Lamothe amazingly molded horse heads on the sleeves of jackets and dresses from his latest collection. This is like one of those optical illusions that leave you baffled for an entire afternoon! (Hey, I get amused very easily.) It almost looks as if a horse run into the sleeve like in a Tom & Jerry cartoon. Loves it! In all seriousness, this is some major molding. I mean from afar, it looks like weird roidy muscles (don’t click on that unless you want to heave), but then you get close and the details on the horse is fascinating. This is stuff that can freak people out, though. Having said that, I’d wear it to The Kentucky Derby with this hat on.

Betsey Johnson always knows how to make fun clothes. Seriously, after trolling through each show online  at NY Fashion Week , Betsey Johnson was pretty much the only one that I would wear. She marches to her own tune- or shall I say bikes to her own tune (are those training wheels?)… Her collection was inspired by bicyclists, The Love Boat (I’m guessing) and her usual flowered frocks that are pretty timeless. This time some of her frocks came in a suit or playsuit of the same fabric. Matchy-Match! I love it! My favorite is the ‘sherbet’ tutu dress- it looks so yummy! I like how Betsey maintains here signature girly look with timeless silhouettes and colorful fabrics. That’s the way Spring should bloom!

Katy Perry is seen above with Rome-ing Panda‘s gummy bear brass knuckles. These are pretty badass is you ask me! My son adores gummy bears so he would totally try to eat them. Not good. I collect those gummy bear glass jars from the hotel room’s minibar and put spices in them. My goal is to have a uniform spice rack of all gummy bear jars. I think I can do it. Anyway, the obsession continues with a matching necklace and of course, Gummy Bear Lights for your nightstand. If you really, really , like REALLY love gummy bears, take a peek at their anatomy. And gummy bear violence. Or a Gummy Bear flipping the bird.  Or finally, an Absinthe Gummy Bear!

Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!

Artist Richard Saja takes toile ( you know, that wallpaper in your foofy nana’s bathroom) and adds mohawks, clown attire and anything extraordinary via needlepoint to those frolicking old-timey people. So, in honor of Fashion’s Night Out a few weeks ago (I know I’m sooooo late on this), Opening Ceremony and Keds teamed up with Richard Saja ( is he related to Sanjaya? because that would be really hawt.) to make toile Keds. Keds just got a total upgrade because last I remember, Keds were for square, preppy kids in the 90s. Basically, if you liked New Kids on the Block, you wore Keds (and no I wore Docs and clogs ( don’t laugh)). Anywho, I can deal with toile Keds- actually, I love love love toile so I gonna hunt these down and make a pair MINE! What a tangled web we weave!
