Archive for the ‘we’ll hang this on the fridge for you’ Category

Who knew violins could take so much milage in fashion? Viktor & Rolf did it. Now ThreeAsFour…. I personally like violins and actually have a violin brooch I bought a while back from Etsy. There’s something somber and snobby about the violin… also it can turn quickly into a hillybilly  hoe down if need be. It’s so versatile! Honestly, these violins look out of place on the garment, as if the model is on their way to a gig or something and needed a free hand. That first outfit is perfect for those subway musicians… it’s like one hand plays, one hand collects money. That last dress looks totally like intestines. I rate this collection FUG.

Beijing designer Xiao Li designed this capsule collection inspired by tin robots! Some of may know that I love love love robots and those vintage tin robots are the favorites. I have this tin robot that I attach to my handbag sometimes- it’s even named after me! Hahhaha. I cant’ hate on anything robot related, so I’ll go ahead and give this an A+++++. Even though the fourth photo looks like a busted diaphragm around her neck, I have to appreciate the craftsmanship. This collection reminds of when I would wear an empty hamper when I was kid. Boxy and smelling like sweaty socks. Those shoes are pretty rad if you’re into Bollywood and it’s totally a DIY- lumber jack boots, marbles (or gumballs, if you don’t mind ants), glue gun and you’re good to go.

PS- I did some research and could not find Xiao Li’s official website, but I did find this precious fluffball! Unless, she’s a fluffy panda bear with mad sewing skillz.

Claire Michel, a student at The Royal Academy of Art in Antwerp, unveiled these designs for a project. I did some heavy duty research ( I googled her ass) and found that there are over 7 million results for ‘Claire Michel’. So, naturally, I said eff this. I don’t know much about her, but her work stands for itself- Part deranged, part pre-school craft projects, part hoodie. This pretty much what I wear when I have to brave it and clean the toilets. I mean, you don’t want all those germs up in your face. I do like the ombre sneakers , though. At least this isn’t as bad as this dude’s collection.

The Heel Condom is probably the most simple way to class up a pair of heels. That is if your definition of classy is a leopard leotard with matching fingerless opera length gloves. No! Some of the designs are actually ok. Puerto Rican designer  Sandrysabel Ortiz (picture her with a margarita in hand  and  wearing a marabou robe from the latest Forplay catalog) designed these clever contraptions to dress up any boring pair of heels. They make even the cheapest heels, well… even cheaper. Kidding! Go to the site, ignore the  The Nanny-inspired music on the site, and get yourself a pair!

And here I am still writing and scratching my ass. These are some ominous masks that can scare the hell out of anyone sane. I guess that’s why I’m not scared. This gem of a collection is belongs to Giulia Pozzuoli from Polimoda, Italy.

Although I can appreciate the actual clothes in the collection, especially the leather jacket with the science fiction shoulders, I just can’t with the masks. It reminds me of that movie, The Strangers, which made me buy 2 extra cell phone chargers and have an irrational fear of burlap bags. Long story short, I will NOT travel to remote areas and always buy basmati rice in a box or paper bag. Anywho, Guilia is a fashion student so she can always do better next time. We’ll still hang this on fridge with the heads cut off.
