Posts Tagged ‘burka’

Starstyling has knack for outrageous styles throughout the years. Anyone that can glitter-up a burka is A-OK in my book. I see hints of rave wear in their collections. I just got a flashback of a teenager with a pacifier and glowstick (that’s not me, although it could have been, once upon a time…!). That fifth photo makes me want to take a snuggly nap in that top. It’s so cozy mozy! I’d wear that on a red-eye flight and brave all the stink-eyes.Check out their site for more crazy stuff.
Lena Hoschek nostalgic designs are perfect for those afternoon yodeling practices and  picnics in the lush Austrian mountains. I love this in every way! Fraulein never looked this hawt! Ya! I’m digging the suspenders. It’s so professor-like.  By the way, in the last photo, has Fraulein lost her shoe?? Is that why she’s the only one smiling. That’s a great shot if it is… I’m keeping my eye on Lena- love the mix of classic and menswear.

At Graduate Fashion Week 2010,  Liesamarie Schulte designed these pieces that tinker on cool, yet strange… Besides the fact that the sheer flowered tunics resemble my aunt’s shower curtain, I think I like it. This collection is called ‘Holy Land’, which I can totally see. It’s like a chic nun’s outfit or an ironic burka. Anyway you cut it, it’s pretty damn fashion forward. Liesamarie is also the recipient of the  Isabella Blow Memorial Award a couple years ago, which awards about $8,000 to the craftiest designer that ever crafted (that’s still in school). I think those boots/Jesus shoes are a riot. It’s like the bizarro leggings from Lindsay Lohan’s legging collection- you know the one with the knee pads. The question is WWJW– What Would Jesus Wear? Something tells me Jesus would have rocked those boots in Nazareth.

PS- And what is in that box/backpack that homegirl is carrying??

You know things are effed up when you need to look at your phone to check out a chick standing across from you. I guess this would be like porn in certain parts of the world. But, some German dude came up with a digitally-enabled burqa using bluetooth technology to let others with the same technology in their phone to see the burqa-wearer. It’s called the “CharmingBurka”. But the lady does have the option to choose what to broadcast, either a photo, sound clip or cartoon or a text file. I would totally use text file, you can guess what I would say….by the way, electronic- flirting is not breaking any Islamic law. So flirt away, ladies!
